Visiting Vet Service News!
Bringing you the latest and most interesting information about dogs, cats, special services for pets,
and whatever else seems relevant.
We now carry the Home Again brand microchip. Please consider having your pet microchipped. Even the most careful pet people (me!!) have lost their beloved pets. ID tags and collars are not 100% reliable. Microchips give assurance that if a pet is picked up and ends up at a vet hospital, shelter, rescue, or pound, it will be readily identified and returned. In the case of a tragic accident, pets are identified and the family can be notfied. Microchips are safe and proven to reunite pets with their people. Please remember to have them checked during routine appointments to be sure they are functioning and easy to find in your pet.
If you have to leave, know who's taking care of your pet:
We have a list of kennels, pet sitters, dog trainers, and groomers that we recommend for our patients. We try to find a good match for you and your individual pets. Everyone needs to feel comfortable and confident that when you leave your precious pets, they will be taken care of with the highest level of compassion and safety.
Coming soon- a comprehensive guide to choosing safe, reliable pet care.
