Do you have a sneaky snacker?

Common foods for us could be dangerous for our pets. These include raw meat and eggs, fat trimmings, grapes and raisins, macadamia nuts, onions, garlic, xylitol (artificial sweetener), avocados, caffeine, alcohol, and milk. Keep your pet safe by keeping these hazards out of reach!

How does heartworm spread anyway?

A single mosquito bite! Slowly but surely heartworm disease has made its way into AZ and it's here to stay. Treatment can be expensive and comes with risk, prevention is always the best choice a pet owner can make. To learn more give us a call at 480-538-9000.

TRICK OR TREAT!

While we're enjoying Halloween with our pets always keep safety in mind. No amount of chocolate is ever good for your dog, but how much can be a serious danger?

If your dog is 10lbs, 3oz of milk chocolate can cause high temperature, muscle tremors, and neurologic issues in addition to vomiting and diarrhea. For a 25lb dog it would take 8oz, 50lb would take 15oz, and 75lb would take 22oz.

For those dark chocolate lovers, be extra careful! The more pure the chocolate the more toxic it is to our pets. It can take half as much (or less) dark chocolate to cause all of the same symptoms.

Vaccinate those puppies!

Parvo is an extremely contagious, incurable virus that attacks the digestive tract resulting in severe dehydration. Without treatment survival rate is very low, making early treatment of a sick puppy extremely important! Symptoms include lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting, and bloody diarrhea (often with an unusually strong smell). Parvo vaccination is always recommended for new pets. We give this to puppies in a series of three injections: one at 8 weeks, one at 12 weeks, and the last one at 16 weeks. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
