REMEMBER – Chocolate is very bad for your canines. Major signs that they made off with the goods include: 1) Hyperactivity – If your doggie is spasing-out more than usual, check around in their favorite hiding corner for the wrappers that were left behind after they devoured your favorite chocolate. This is usually followed with 2) Vomiting – Unfortunately, the pup will get very sick and might even react allergically. Get them seen as soon as possible if that happens. Contact Us

Thankful For Our Pets

So Let’s Not Feed Them The Wrong Things

We are thankful for our pets and all the joy they bring into our lives. This month we celebrate with food and company, but for our pets this can mean anxious and upset feelings as well as access to foods that they may or may not need to be eating.

No, Nos for your Dogs include Chocolate and Onions. Onions hide in a lot of dishes so make sure before you treat your pet to the left-overs. Nuts, alcohol and poultry bones also make the list.

Animals can over-eat too, so keep the fatty foods to a minimum to avoid an upset tummy.

Keep the Treats Away From Doggies

Halloween candy tips for dogs

Treats, Wrappers and Especially CHOCOLATE need to stay out of dog’s reach to help avoid tummy trouble or an emergency visit to the Vet!

A Quiet Place

If your dog gets anxious around a lot of activity, find a safe quiet place for your pet to be. Soft music and low light can help calm your pet. Make sure they have their toys and blanket.

A Safe Distance

To keep dogs and cats out of trouble, keep them away from the front door either by getting them out of the way or even using a baby/doggie gate to keep them away from trick or treaters. It’s also a good idea to keep cats inside during Halloween, lest they be caught up in mischief.

World Rabies Day 9-28-19

World Rabies Day

While rabies is a 100% preventable disease, more than 59,000 people die from the disease around the world each year. World Rabies Day is an opportunity to reflect on our efforts to control this deadly disease and remind ourselves that the fight is not yet over.

cdc.gov/worldrabiesday/

We want to let you know that if you have questions about rabies, its affects and treatments, you can consult your veterinarians here at TLC Pet Hospital. Rabies is a serious disease, only animals who have been vaccinated prior to exposure are treatable. Unvaccinated animals are euthanized.

Dogs, Cats, and Ferrets

Dogs, cats, and ferrets that are currently vaccinated with a USDA-licensed rabies vaccine should be revaccinated immediately, kept under the owner’s control, and observed for 45 days. If the animal under observation develops any signs of illness, it should be evaluated by a veterinarian.
