Ouch! Fishing and dogs don’t always go hand in hand. This sweet pup had to visit our ER this week to get an embedded fish hook taken out of his mouth. Fish hooks are dangerous for dogs and can be ingested or get stuck in the lips, face, legs or paws. If you like the company of your pet when fishing, take care to keep them safe. It only takes a quick second for them to excitedly grab that lure or step on your fishing hook. We were able to safely remove the hook and lure from this pup's mouth, and we hope his next fishing adventure will smoother sailing! 🎣

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!

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

We are more than just coworkers, we are friends. Our team always enjoys getting together with each other and our pups outside of work. Some of our Client Care Specialists and Technicians, here, went to the beach last week to celebrate Jaxon's 10th birthday! #FriendshipFriday

One of our technicians, 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/aBOV30lg1lW
