There is No Fooling Around with Heartworm

Buy Heartworm Medication!

It’s sometimes hard to imagine that “an ounce of prevention”…really is worth it. In this case it is. Heart worms are highly invasive and the treatment, once afflicted, adds up quickly.

For the cost of what adds up to be 7 years worth of medication, the treatment is more than your dog and 
your wallet want to go through. The reality is that you 
love your pet and you don’t want to see them go 
through a case of Heartworm. Call to schedule 
a Heartworm test.

Worms grow over 7 months and usually 
come in multitudes. The worms begin 
with an incubation period inside the
 mosquito. They carry the larvae and 
deliver it to the host, your cat or dog! They can 
grow up to 12 inches and dogs can be infected 
with as many as 250 of them. It’s nasty business
for your dog or cat! This is why we recommend regular testing and most importantly, preventive medication.

Fear FREE Certified Professionals

Fear Free Certified professional

Several of our team members have gone through the Fear Free Certified Professional program for Albuquerque Veterinarians. We have adopted a culture of Fear FREE medicine in the clinic and try to add a little TLC into every interaction we have with your pet.

What is Fear Free?

Utilization of Fear Free methods and protocols leads to better healthcare outcomes, satisfied clients and relaxed patients. It also reduces or removes anxiety triggers, which creates an experience that is rewarding and safer for all involved, including your pet(s), you and your veterinary healthcare team.

Hot Pavement, No Dogs Allowed

Hot Pavement doesn't require hot temperatures

Hot Pavement Doesn’t Require Hot Temperatures

Don’t go out for walks once it gets past 80 degrees. Especially on dark pavement, but gravel trails get just as hot under the New Mexico sun.

Make sure that you have plenty of water for you and your pet. Continue reading

COVID19 UPDATE

4/1

Hello everyone! Thank you all for your understanding and support while we all adjust to the changes that have been brought on. As we continue to evolve with the current pandemic, we would like for everyone to know that we will continue to provide the best medicine possible for your furry family members as well as continue to provide you with the same treatment (as close as possible) that you are accustomed to! We have sent out an email with more details on some recent changes but here are a few things we would like to share.

*We are still at this time open normal business hours and have increased all current sanitation procedures again!

*Please call to schedule an appointment.  There are some appointments that we will need to postpone, but please call us and we can discuss your particular need.!

*Please call the clinic when you arrive for your appointment (or if you are picking up food/medications)

*At this time, we are not permitting clients into our facility.  We will bring your food/medications out to you.  If you are here for an appointment, we will get a history from you about your pet and take your pet into the clinic where our doctors will perform their examination and we will call or come out to explain to you our findings and any needed recommendations.

We are all in this together. We will continue to keep you informed as we change protocols or as regulations change what we are permitted to do. PLEASE call if you have any questions.

Thank you,
The entire TLC Pet Hospital Staff

 

Health Update

Just wanted to let everyone know that we will no longer be performing any elective surgeries for the next few weeks. This includes spays, neuters, declaws, general mass removals and routine dental cleanings. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however, with the short supply of medical supplies, we need to help any way we can to conserve. We appreciate your understanding!
