Doc's Desk
Welcome to the doctor’s bulletin board.

This forum will be used for announcements and timely topics. Check this page frequently for new, valuable and important information from the Doctor's of the Clinic that are offered to help your pet lead a long, healthy and happy life.

Heat Stroke
Summer is right around the corner and the temperature is rising. During hot weather our pets are at risk from heat related illness, injury and death. We have a few suggestions to keep your pet happy and healthy this summer.

  • Never leave your pet in your vehicle. The temperature can rise to life threatening levels in a matter of minutes.
  • Pets that must stay outdoors need unlimited access to fresh water and adequate shade.
  • Do not exercise your pet during the heat of the day.
  • If your pet is showing distress, seek veterinary attention immediately.
  • Heat stroke is often fatal so the key is PREVENTION!
Healthy Weight
One of the greatest things that you can do for your pet is to keep them at a healthy weight. Animals maintained at a healthy size will have an increased quality of life for a longer period of time. Overweight dogs and cats are faced with a higher risk of chronic health problems, such as diabetes or mobility issues, to mention only a few. Weight is determined on an individual basis and your veterinarian can help you assess your pet. If changes are needed, you and your veterinarian can develop a plan to help your pet reach their goal. A healthy plan will involve a good controlled diet and increased activity. The "new lifestyle" may not easy but the rewards will be well worth the effort.
