Christmas Brings Unwanted Surprises!
Eating unusual foods, tinsel from the tree, ornaments, ribbon, and small toys, are all cause for illness and emergency visits for dogs and cats. Keep an extra close eye on your pet during the holidays and please call us with any questions or concerns.
Is your pet slowing down?
As dogs and cats age, their risk of arthritis in the joints increases. Pets don’t show pain as people do, but rather suffer in silence. If you are concerned about your pet’s mobility, or would like help determining if your pet is having troubles, please call for an appointment. There are a number of treatment options available.
