Halloween and Pets

Halloween is coming up in a few short weeks, while this is an exciting time for all the little ones, we need to keep our furry family members in mind with all of the treats.

Below are some tips to keep our pets safe:

Stash the Treats: While the kiddies and adults enjoy the treats, they can create dangerous situations for our pets. Please keep all treats up high away from your pets. If your pet ingests some of the candy/chocolate please call your veterinarian or proceed to your local emergency clinic.

Watch the Pumpkins: They are great but can be easily knocked over by dogs and cats, and if they have candles can create a fire.

Costumes: While they are cute on any animal, make sure that they enjoy being in one as if not this can cause stress for your furry loved one.

House Visitors: This holiday brings a lot of people trick-or-treating to your door. Make sure that your pet is kept away from the door to help them from getting out, but also make sure they have identification on their collars in case they do get loose.

Have a Safe Halloween!

Dear Clients,

We have made some important updates to our operating policies effective August 22, 2022.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, Lyme testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

Please keep in mind there is a very large demand for Veterinary care and an industry shortage, there may be an extended wait for an appointment time. We are trying to accommodate as much as possible daily.
