Keep Your #Pet Safe This #Holiday

The holidays are a wonderful time to spend with the whole family, but here are some tips you may not know:

1. Be aware of #Christmas traditions you may not know are poisonous to your pet such as poinsettia, mistletoe, tree longevity products added to the water, and lily plants. Evergreen trees are ok, but not the little juniper berries that are on some species. Amaryllis plants are not poisonous, but will give your pet a nasty bout of diarrhea.

2. Tinsel and ribbon are particularly dangerous to your pet’s intestines, and are likely to cause obstruction or perforation, often requiring surgery...

Keeping #Pets Healthy for #Thanksgiving

With the continued recognition of the bond felt by owners for their pets, a recent survey revealed that almost 90% of pet owners include their furry friends in holiday celebrations. With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, it is important to use caution so that our pets may participate safely and not fall victim to over-indulgence or come into contact with food that may prove hazardous to their digestion.

This November, we bring awareness to diabetes in pets. It is important to learn about this condition and to work closely with your veterinarian to regulate your pet's diabetes as well as possible.

Diabetes mellitus is an endocrine disorder that occurs in dogs and cats. It is characterized by high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and it is caused by an inability of the pancreas to properly secrete enough insulin into the blood. Insulin is the hormone that controls blood sugar in the body. Insulin helps to transport glucose from the blood into the cells of the body that then use the glucose for energy. Read more on our blog!

As you may expect, when pets age, they need special care and attention. If your pet is getting on in the years, a #veterinarian can help him or her enjoy a better quality of life through geriatric care procedures designed specifically to address the needs of older pets. #PetGeriatricCare

What Does My Child Need To Do To Become A Veterinarian?

Most people know veterinarians are doctors for animals, but don’t know what education and background is required. The average veterinarian completes 4 1/2 years of undergraduate education, taking classes such as biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, physics, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, math, animal science, and more...and that's just to prepare them for veterinary school.

How Does Your #Cat  Communicate?

There is no doubt that cats have their own form of communication. If you live with one, you have probably experienced this. In this veterinary article, there are a few guidelines for interpreting some of their innate techniques; such as, chatter, chirp, growl, hiss, purr, and #meow . By listening to your cat's vocalizations and addressing his or her needs, you will learn "catspeak," too.

Introduction
At Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital serving Ridgewood, Midland Park, Mahwah, Paramus, and all of Northern New Jersey, our staff of certified veterinarians is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to meet your pet's needs.

Dr. Cerf graduated from Cornell University in 1978 and upon graduation was awarded the Malcolm E. Miller Award for Scholastic Achievement. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Cerf is an accomplished veterinarian who has participated in national and international seminars teaching other veterinarians laser applications and surgery. He has developed new laser surgical techniques including Ultrasound Guided Endoscopic Laser Ablation (UGELAB) which is an innovative technique for treating transitional cell carcinoma (cancer) of the canine urinary bladder. His commitment to animals and the people who love them is demonstrated by his endless pursuit to find new and creative means to diagnose, treat and cure disease, as he states, "to begin where medical books end."

The Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital is committed to helping pets and the people who love them by combining the highest quality of medicine, technology, and service provided by our caring staff. This dedication to consistent excellence, throughout each pet's entire life, is demonstrated by our endless pursuit to find new and creative means to diagnose, treat and cure disease, and to begin where medical books end.

Our History:
In 1972 Dr. Dean J. Cerf, Hospital Director, continued the tradition of the Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital, after its original establishment 150 years ago by the Hopper family of Ridgewood. Dr. Cerf has since developed the Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital into one of the most advanced and respected veterinary hospitals in New Jersey. He has grown the hospital into a six doctor practice with two locations and a grooming salon. The skilled support staff has grown from three people to over fifty caring professionals, who complete a rigorous training program consisting of oral, written and practical exams, as well as participation in continuing education programs.
Our Hospital: Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital is a full-service animal hospital accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association. Most importantly we care for your dogs, cats, pet birds, small exotic mammals, and reptiles as if they were our own.
