Is Your Pet Overweight?

Pet obesity isn't something to take lightly.  According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 60% of cats and 56% of dogs in the US are overweight or obese.  

That means they are at greater risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, kidney disease, and many forms of cancer.

Please take the time to talk to us about what you can do to cut these odds, starting with a veterinarian-approved diet and exercise plan.

With a few changes, you'll grant your pet a happier, healthier life - and you'll get to enjoy more time together.

 

 

 

 

 

Fall Parasites

Flea & Tick

According to a recent study, flea counts on animals during fall months was 70% higher than the flea counts in spring!

These pests are responsible for all kinds of health issues - flea allergic dermatitis, tapeworm, Lyme disease and anaplasmosis just to name a few.

Cats and dogs can pick up these pests by rolling around in the grass, frolicking in leaves, or simply walking through the neighborhood.  Even indoor pets can run into trouble when ticks and fleas hitchhike their way inside.

Let's talk about the best way to bid farewell to fleas and ticks.  Give us a call today.
