Tropical Storm Arthur was upgraded to a hurricane this morning, becoming the first hurricane of the season. As the storm bears down on the East Coast, the AVMA is reminding pet owners about the importance of including their animals in their disaster preparedness and evacuation plans.

Secondhand smoke is harmful to pets, too. Studies from Tufts University, Colorado State University, and other schools have confirmed that secondhand smoke can cause health problems in pets, including cancer. If you smoke, please consider quitting, for your health, your family's health, and your pet's health. For more on how secondhand smoke puts pets at risk, view our resource: https://www.avma.org/public/PetCare/Pages/Stop-smoking-for-your-pets-health.aspx

Just like you and your children, pets can experience a range of reactions to vaccination - from no apparent effect at all to more severe reactions. Talk to your veterinarian about what vaccines are recommended to protect your pet from potentially deadly diseases, and know what to expect after your pet is vaccinated.

Good preventive care (e.g., vaccination, control of parasites, weight management, etc.) is essential to reducing long-term pet health care costs because it prevents many diseases. Emergencies, illnesses, and injuries do happen, though, and a new page on our website provides some information and links for pet owners who may be in need of financial assistance.

There are many Internet rumors about heartworm and heartworm treatment being spread by people with no real knowledge of heartworm or veterinary medicine. Don't fall for it - if you have ANY questions about heartworm, or anything else regarding your pet's health, your VETERINARIAN is your best source of information!

Dog parks can be a great source of fun and exercise for our pets, but, if we’re not careful, they can also pose some health risks for dogs and people. In this AVMA podcast, Dr. Susan Nelson, clinical associate professor at the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine, shares tips on keeping pets and people safe when visiting dog parks.

This week, July 6-12, is National Farriers Week. We'd like to thank the farriers out there for working with the veterinarians to keep horses healthy and performing at their best. Thanks!

Feel free to give a shout out to your favorite farriers in the comments.
