Back To Back Harsh Winters Has Us Taking Our Pets to The Vets!

Another extreme winter and pet owners are bringing their pets (mostly dogs) in for frost bite and other cold weather issues.  With record setting lows and wind chills, it doesn’t take long to cause your pets harm. Please limit the amount of time you leave them outside.

Pets with existing conditions like diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, or hormonal imbalances (such as Cushing’s) may have a more difficult time adjusting to cold temperatures.

Ice and snow are hard on your dog’s paws, so check them regularly. There are some over the counter treatments that help protect paws. You can also reduce the ice ball accumulation by clipping the hair between your dog’s toes.

Be careful what you throw on your icy sidewalks and driveway. Chemicals that melt the ice can be harmful to your pets. Look for pet friendly brands to help protect your pets.

Another important reason to bring your pets to the vets this winter is our February Dental Month special. Pets get a needed teeth cleaning and owners save 10%. Call today for an appointment.
