June Pet of the Month

This is Izzy Barra, owned by Kathy Barra. We are proud to announce that she is our Pet of the Month for June.

Summer is an exciting time for the entire family...but exploding fireworks, loud booming music and other noises, like thunderstorms, are terribly frightening to pets. We recommend keeping your pets inside in a room farthest away from the fireworks or noise. Never let pets near exploding fireworks which can burn and severely injure them. Our office can offer suggestions or medication to help ease your pet’s anxiety during the summer season.

Pets & Heat

Now is a wonderful opportunity to have fun and frolic with your pets…but be careful. While exercise is important for pets, overexertion during hot weather can commonly cause heat stress. Make sure your pet has an ample supply of fresh drinking water at all times and a shady spot to retreat to for protection from the midday sun and heat.

Pets and Trucks

Did you know that riding in the back of trucks is not safe for your pet and in some states it’s actually illegal?  While any dog would love the wind blowing through its fur, other things are blowing through that wind too.  This increases the risk for you dog to get hit with flying debris which might cause injury that you might not even be aware of.  Keep your pet in the cab of the truck, preferably in a crate that will not slide around with sudden stops.
