We Love Our Clients (https://goo.gl/Cz6xCT)

At Danville Family Vet, we treat all of our clients like they're family. Our goal is to care for all of your pets needs while putting both them and you at ease.

We love to read what our clients have said about their experience at Family Vet. Here are just some of the reviews that have brought smiles to our faces:

" Dakota loves the attention he gets from Dr. Rohrig! She always remembers that Dakota can't have treats, and she gets on her knees and plays with him for a good minute....that is Dakotas treat! We both love her personality and excellent medical treatment that she and the techs give. Having a great groomer like Mallory, at the same location, is the 'icing on the cake'! The front desk techs, along with the techs whom assist Doctors Smith and Rohrig, are not only well trained, but they always make you feel like family! Thank you, Family Vet!" - Jackie G.

_"I could not be happier with the care that Roxie received. The dr. and nurse took their time with her and cared observed her as if she were their dog. They were so good I posted it on Facebook." - Rachel P.

"We put all our confidence in them and are not disappointed." - Sharron D.

Caring For Your Older Pet (https://goo.gl/4D4Ker)

It's a fact of life that animals age must faster than humans. While old age is not a disease, and it cannot be cured, some of the inevitable challenges that accompany it can be overcome with early intervention.

As we get older, we have more aches and pains and need certain medications to keep us going strong. The same is true for our pets. We can help keep your furry family members healthy and happy throughout their lives, even as they get older.

When your cat or dog reaches about seven years of age, it's time to schedule an appointment to discuss the age-related issues that may affect their health. Mature pets are much more likely to have silent conditions, including diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, or thyroid and hormonal issues.

Call us today to learn more about caring for your aging pets, and ensuring that they're living their best life for as long as possible.

Comforting Your Pets During Fireworks (https://goo.gl/p7H1NU)

The Fourth of July can be great fun for people, but it can be traumatic for your pets. Many animals find fireworks scary, but there are some things you can do to help your pet cope with the noise.

Here are some tips for helping calm your dog during fireworks:

- Walk your dogs during the day when there shouldn't be fireworks going off

- Close your windows and draw your curtains to muffle the sounds of the fireworks

- Play some music or turn the tv on to help mask the sounds outside

- Create a quiet space where your dog can retreat to

- Create some comfortable hiding places around your house


Cats can be scared by fireworks too. Here are some tips to help keep them calm:

- Provide hiding places around your home

- Bring outdoor cats inside during the fireworks

- Microchip your cats in case they are startled and run away

If your pet seems particularly anxious, discuss it with your vet. There are things they can do to help.

Is Your Pet Having Behavioral Problems? (https://goo.gl/cDhxue)

Is your dog barking, jumping up, digging, or chewing? Is your cat having trouble hitting the litter box?

These all constitute behavioral problems, and at Danville Family Vet Animal Clinic, behavioral medicine is a special area of interests to us.

Our pets may have bad habits, or they may have more serious anxiety disorders.

At Family Vet, we treat separation anxiety, thunderstorm phobia, noise phobias, generalized anxiety, and aggression.

Our veterinarians can help you develop a comprehensive approach to therapy that will make both you and your pet happy together. We know that behavioral issues often have multiple causes and influencers, which is why we will work with you and your pet to get to the root of the issue.

Above all, know that you are not alone. Nearly every one of our pets has quirks and idiosyncrasies. We're just here to help you and your pet feel and behave better.

Here are a couple of the wonderful reviews we've received in the past month:

"Danville Family Vet is THE BEST!!!!!! The doctors are very thorough and take wonderful care of my babies. The groomer is great~ my babies love Malory and they look spiffy when I pick them up. I also board here and their facility and staff are great! I know that they are being well taken care of when I need to leave town. They board just about every week for a couple days. I highly recommend Danville Family Vet." - Trudy H.

"My dog Marla loves going to Danville Family Vet! She goes to doggy daycare about 3 times a week and is always excited to go. Also if there is anything I need in regards to Marla's health they are always quick to get Marla in to be seen or they are able to check her out when she's there during the day. I highly recommend Danville Family Vet for daycare, vet visits, and boarding. It also helps that their staff is the best!!" - Charlotte K.

Should You Shave Your Pets For Summer? (https://goo.gl/pxNT34)

In one of our last few posts, we talked about keeping your pets safe during the summer. One of the tips we mentioned was not shaving your pet. Today, we're going to give you a little more information about why.

A pet's coat is designed to keep it warm during the winter and cold during the summer. By shaving your pet, you may be interfering with this built-in temperature regulation.

If you have a dog with a very thick coat who seems to suffer from the heat, your veterinarian may suggest shaving them. If you are going to shave your thick-coated dog, you need to ensure that you don't shave them all the way.

Be sure to leave at least an inch of hair to protect your pet, since any dog can suffer from a sunburn.

If you're really concerned about your pet being too hot, consider following some of our other summer safety tips for pets, including providing plenty of clean water and sheltering them from the sun.

At Family Vet we have an expert dog groomer on staff to help with all of your pet grooming needs.

Pet Food Fast Facts (https://goo.gl/KcmrGX)

Consumers spend 20 billion dollars a year on pet food, but unfortunately, the pet food industry is not well regulated.

Here are some fast facts about pet food to help you navigate the marketing tactics that are applied so regularly to pet food.

Pets are rarely allergic to gluten
Since humans commonly have problems with gluten, pet food companies use the "gluten-free" tag as a sales tactic.

The ingredients don't necessarily reflect what's in the bag
Pet food companies are legally allowed to change the recipe of their foods temporarily for up to 6 months without changing the label.

The word organic doesn't mean anything
Unless there is a USDA organic seal on the label, there is no significant organic content.

Natural doesn't mean much either
There is no legal definition of the word natural. It may sound nice, but it doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Not every company tests their food
Anyone can formulate and develop a pet food recipe, but many companies skip out on performing a food trial because they're expensive. Pet foods that are formulated to AAFCO standards may never actually be tested on animals.


At Family Vet Animal Clinic we are happy to give you recommendations for your pet. We also stock food from companies that use the highest quality ingredients to make your pet food shopping easy.


At Family Vet we have all the training and tools to care for your pet, and put the care and effort into making it an enjoyable experience for you and your pet. After all, we're family. Visit our website to learn more and to make an appointment online: https://goo.gl/UR3oXo
