Protect Your Pet During The Winter
 
The best prescription for winter's woes is to keep your dog or cat inside with you and your family.  The happiest dogs are taken out frequently for walks and exercise but kept inside the rest of the time.  Take precautions if your pet spends a lot of time outside.

If for some reason your dog is outdoors much of the day, he or she must be protected by a dry, draft-free shelter that is large enough to allow the dog to sit and lie down comfortably but small enough to hold in his/her body heat.  The floor should be raised a few inches off the ground and covered with cedar shavings or straw.  The doorway should be covered with waterproof burlap or heavy plastic.

Give your pets plenty of food and water.  Pets who spend a lot of time outdoors need more food in the winter because keeping warm depletes energy.  Routinely check your pet's water dish to make certain the water is fresh and unfrozen.  Use plastic food and water bowls; when the temperature is low, your pet's tongue can stick and freeze to metal.

Protect paws from salt.  The salt and other chemicals used to melt snow and ice can irritate the pads of your pet's feet.  Wipe all paws with a damp towel before your pet licks them and irritates his/her mouth.    

         
Dangerous Foods for Pets
         
Many items on our tables and in our homes are toxic to our pets. If eaten, some can cause severe illness and even death. If your pet eats any of the items on the list below, you should call your regular veterinarian, your local emergency veterinarian, or an animal poison control hotline immediately for guidance!
  • Grapes and raisins (can cause acute renal failure)
  • Onions and Onion Powder
  • Chocolate (all forms, but especially dark and unsweetened)
  • Alcoholic Beverages (as little as an ounce of 20 to 40 proof alcohol can put your dog in a coma)
  • Yeast Dough
  • Tea and Coffee (all components - not just brewed)
  • Avocados (toxic to birds, mice, rabbits, horses, cattle, and dairy goats)
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Hops (used in home brewing kits)
  • Cigarettes/Cigars

Information We Should Have For Your Pet
Have you ever wondered what information you should have before you bring your pet into the veterinarian?  We have questions that can help your veterinarian provide the best care for your pet.  Please contact us to make sure your pet's information is up to date.
 
No Interest Payment Plans are available!
You might want to consider the convenience of a monthly payment plan.  There is a program called CareCredit that is similar to your credit card.  It is a convenient, low minimum monthly payment program to help you accept the best treatment recommendation for your pets.  No annual fees and No Interest Payment Plans are available.  Give us a call or stop by the clinic for more information. 
 
Do you know about Pet Insurance? 
It's becoming more popular to have insurance for your pet. Give us a call or stop by the clinic for more information.
