We're sharing February's health topic a little early this year; it's that important! February is National Pet Dental Health Month. Not only can dental disease cause bad breath, it can also cause or worsen other health problems, and be painful for your furry friend. We are offering our Dental Health Month discount on all dental procedures for the rest of this month and throughout February. Call our office today to find out more!

We all love our pets, and one of the best ways for us to show them our love is to shower them with food, right? Unfortunately, that is one of the worst ways to express our love for our four-legged friends. Obesity is linked to many diseases, which can either cause them directly or increase the severity of an already existing condition. Below are 5 questions to ask your vet about pet obesity, and some constructive ways on managing your pet’s weight.
This month we would like to discuss obedience and exercise. We all want our dogs to be well behaved, and even though some seem to come with perfect manners, that is not the case for most dogs. Just like children, puppies learn social skills and manners from their mothers, as well as other dogs and puppies in the pack. Once a puppy or dog is in our care, it is up to us to be their pack leader and teach them appropriate boundaries and behaviors. Consistent socialization and exposing your pet to new experiences can be fulfilling for both you and your dog.
Dogs not only need physical exercise to help them stay happy and healthy, but mental exercise as well. Mental exercise helps to keep them from getting bored and destructive and has also been shown to burn just as much energy as physically activity. Environmental enrichment has many benefits and can not only keep your pet busy and out of trouble, but can provide an improved and more fulfilled life for your pet
