What to expect when you're expecting...a rescue dog! Many people become discouraged by the lengthy and rigorous process many animal rescues and shelters have established. Long applications, home visits, and meet-and-greets; it may sound overwhelming but it's not as bad as you think!

Today is #NationalChecktheChipDay and we want to remind all pet parents to check their pet's microchip information. If a pet is ever lost or stolen, a microchip can help them find their way home, but it only works if its registration information is correct.
If you're not sure, have your veterinarian scan your pet for a microchip. If you know your pet's microchip number but not the company it's registered with, use this website to find out: http://www.petmicrochiplookup.org. Once you have this information you can check directly with the company to make sure your pet is registered to your current address and contact information. Don't wait until it's too late, do a quick check now to save your pet later!

Honey, here, is a Poodle Mix who came to us all the way from California! She and her parents came to New Hampshire to visit nearby family, and she needed a bandage change after getting a partial tail amputation back home. Luckily our team is always happy to care for vacationing families and their pets and we got her right in! Dr. Capozzi and our ER technician Caroleanne removed the old gauze wrap, cleaned it up, replaced it with a brand new bandage, and off she went! Honey was just as sweet as her name and, believe it or not, she really does have eyes under all that curly fur! Safe travels back home, friend!

A common question we get in the veterinary community is: why does my dog eat grass? From a little nibble every now and then, to chomping whole patches away; dog owners are often concerned about this behavior. Read more here: http://ow.ly/ezDl30lme1C

For some dogs, running off leash and playing with other four-legged buddies can be a real treat. But, as we have seen with countless dog park wound cases at our hospital, it can also be dangerous. Here are a few tips to keep your pooch safe after you unclip that leash: http://ow.ly/OyRu30ll2AH

One of our technicians at our sister hospital Port City, Trina Bellinger, CVT, ventured to South Africa with Safari4u for the veterinary training experience of a lifetime. She hopes that by sharing her adventure, she can inspire other vet techs and assistants to embark on this amazing learning journey too! Read her story here: http://ow.ly/og7M30lg1tc

Summer may be winding down, but the temperatures aren't! When it's 77 degrees outside, the asphalt in the sun can reach 125 degrees. Though we're able to wear sandals to protect our feet from the hot summer concrete, can you imagine how hot your dog's paws are when it's 85 or 90 degrees outside? Check out our signs to watch out for and tips on how to keep your pup's paws protected: http://ow.ly/DYRi30lcrKX

In New Hampshire, tick populations are higher than usual this year and researchers are now monitoring more than 5 tick-borne diseases in the state! That means trouble for our furry friends, especially when diseases from fleas, ticks, and mosquitos have tripled in the last 10 years according to the CDC. But fear not, there are plenty of preventatives to choose from to keep your dog or cat safe from these pests: http://ow.ly/oYni30lbH9O
