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!
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.
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.
Just Like Vampires Garlic is not good for dogs. Remember anything with chocolate is a no no for dogs. This includes chocolate chip cookies and ice cream. Raisins and Grapes. Avocados are all no, not. Onions, garlic, chives. Different dogs react differently to meats as well. Beef and chicken can often be offenders.
Also onions and garlic are in a lot of dishes, make sure you are not feeding them to your pets.
Utilization of Fear Free methods and protocols leads to better healthcare outcomes, satisfied clients and relaxed patients.

Stress can start at home. We encourage you to check out our check-lists to insure that you are doing everything possible to start on the right foot.
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.

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.
Your pet can become very distressed when fireworks and people cause a commotion. If you are entertaining and or celebrating with fireworks this Summer, don’t forget about your furry friends.
