Quarterly Newsletter

Happy summer time! The warm weather is here! Hopefully, we will all be getting outside and enjoying our favorite outdoor past times such as camping, grilling out with friends, and dog walks! All this outdoor activity is great for your pets and your family! Taking your dog for a walk is one of the best, most simple, inexpensive thing you can do for their health. Regular exercise and activity is a must in keeping your pet in good condition. Not only will it help maintain healthy muscle mass, but will also help with weight loss and curb many unwanted behavioral conditions stemming from lack of activity such as inappropriate elimination, destructive behaviors, and excessive vocalization.

Although being active outdoors has many health benefits, it also comes with some increased risk of contracting unwanted parasites such as fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal worms. It is easy to keep your pet protected from these pests with simple applications of prevention. There are many brands available suited for many different life styles of dogs and cats. Please feel free to ask us for help in deciding which is best for your pet. We have several options available to you and lots of opportunities for some great product rebates, making many of them very affordable. If we don’t have the product you are looking for, or if you prefer to order online, we recommend using a veterinary accredited pharmacy such as “Vertsource,” who’s link is located on our “online pharmacy” tab. This is a very reputable veterinary pharmacy that offers competitive pricing with a guarantee of getting a product that is not expired or sourced from overseas. They offer everything from heartworm and flea prevention to prescription foods that can be delivered right to your door. Not all online pharmacies are safe! The online pharmacy market is a big money business and doesn’t always make your pet’s health a priority. Please be selective on where you purchase products that can affect your pet’s health! We have included an article from the FDA website to educate and inform our clients of the risks of buying pet medications online.

So be safe and get outside this summer with your four legged family members!! Thank you for trusting us to care for your furry children.
