Has scratching from allergies been driving your dog and yourself crazy? Well, we’ve got good news! Allergens are at their lowest levels and pets are least itchy during the fall and winter months, making now the beginning of the ideal time of year to get your pet’s allergies under control with allergy testing and allergy shots. That’s why for a limited time only, we’re offering our intra-dermal allergy test package at a special price. During the months of September and October, any dog of any size can get a 48-antigen intra-dermal allergy test for just $299 – a savings $100 or more! Please note – some restrictions do apply. There are several important preliminary steps or treatments all pets must go through first to get meaningful results from allergy testing. It’s important to discuss this with your veterinarian.

Make Vet Visits Stress free

Animal Hospital

Veterinary visits can be a lot of fun for some animals. Many dogs just love to get out about, no matter what the reason! But for other dogs, probably most cats, and even some humans…veterinary visits can be a bit stressful. If you or your critters are in this latter category, don’t worry…you’re not alone. Here are three simple tips that can help make your next veterinary visit a little less stressful.

1. Avoid peak times, which are typically 7am – 9am and 4:30pm – close. Saturdays are often extremely busy, all day long

2. Bring only one pet per appointment – it can sometimes be difficult to have a conversation with the vet and keep up with multiple ‘kids’ on the ends of the leashes.

3. Bring a written list of questions, concerns, or issues to be discussed with the veterinarian – that way nothing gets overlooked.

November Grooming Tip!

Simultaneous drying and brushing is a great way to see any small mats you would normally brush over. It also allows you to see the skin clearly to check for any lesions or growths.
