Isn't it great when something you normally think of as "bad" turns out to be extremely helpful?! Life can be good like that!

"Unfortunately, we live in a world where this still needs to be said. Every summer there are new stories about dogs being left alone in a parked car with nothing but a window crack for relief. This veterinarian was tired of the stories, so he set out to prove that a few cracked windows does absolutely nothing to cool you down. Any human that doesn’t want to put up with this kind of heat shouldn’t force their pets to deal with it, either."

Thanks to San Ramon Mayor Bill Clarkson, clients of ours were reunited with their cat Bailey at our hospital after being missing for TWO YEARS!
THIS is why ALL pets should be microchipped!!!

Do you love taking your dog with you hiking and camping? Well then this tip is for you! Poison Oak is widespread in Northern California and not only is it possible for you to get Poison Oak from your dog, it is pretty common too.

Dogs are generally not susceptible to the oil urushiol that comes from Poison Oak. But if they run about in the grass, bush, and trees they can get the oil all over their coats - and then all over you! So here are a few tips to help prevent you from getting Poison Oak from your best four-legged friend.

Be aware of your surroundings and do not let your dog off-leash in certain areas. If you think your dog has been exposed to Poison Oak the best thing to do is give them a bath with a degreasing soap. The oil is difficult to remove otherwise. Make sure to protect yourself with rubber gloves and long sleeves and pants. You may even want to wear protective goggles - the last thing you want is water with urushiol flung in your eyes. Run lots of cold water and use Dawn or another degreasing soap to thoroughly wash your dog's coat. Be mindful of getting soap in your dog's eyes. You will want to use lots of cold water for a long period of time to make sure you have removed the oils.

Giving back to our local rescue groups and the animals they save is part of our mission as a hospital. Our veterinarians and staff devote hours of their time and services to making a difference in the lives of these animals.
