Halloween Safety for Pets

Halloween can be exciting for us, with friends coming over in costume, kids knocking on the door for candy, and even our pets might be dressed up. Before the holiday begins, we encourage you to take some time to think about your pet’s safety and their feelings. Make sure they have a quiet place to relax, out of sight of the unusually-costumed people and out of hearing of the continual door knocks. Make sure if your pet is in costume that they’re wearing something comfortable that isn’t restrictive and can be easily removed if they become uncomfortable. If your pet acts strangely on Halloween, odds are that it’s because they’re anxious, and need a quiet place to unwind.

Today is National Pet Obesity Awareness Day

Today is National Pet Obesity Awareness Day: a day set aside to educate pet owners about the danger of obesity in pets, and a day for pet owners to look at their options when it comes to their pet’s health. We encourage all pet owners to contact us if they’re concerned about their overweight pets. If you have questions, we can help determine a diet and exercise plan that will improve your pet’s health and increase their life-expectancy. Just ask!
