It's Summer!!

Take a look below for helpful summer tips and reminders!



Heartworms are one of the most serious threats to your pet's health. If you don't currently have your pet on heartworm prevention, or have never had them on protection, give us a call to schedule an appointment for a heartworm test! We have many options on prevention type and are happy to help find the best for you and your pet. We can also give you more information on what heartworms are and why it's so important to have your pet on prevention.




Fleas and ticks are rampant during the summer months! Having your pet on prevention can protect against diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Erlichiosis. Stop by to pick up prevention for your pet and don't forget to grab a free tick removal tool! Mowing grass frequently and keeping brush and bushes trimmed can help too!



We may love fireworks, but our pets most likely don't find them entertaining. If you know there will be fireworks happening, it's best to keep pets inside in a quiet room with no windows. This will hopefully keep the pet from becoming overly anxious and frightful. Many pets tend to run during this time, so we also recommend getting your pet microchipped and making sure they have tags on their collars. If you have any questions on the microchipping process or price, give us a call!



Knowing the signs of overheating in your pet can prevent a heat stroke. Senior pets, new puppies/kittens, pets with heart or respiratory conditions, and pets with narrowed airways or short noses (i.e. pugs, boxers, shih tzus, boston terriers, and bulldogs) are at a higher risk for overheating. If you notice any combination of these symptoms please give us a call:

  • Excessive panting
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Increased heart and respiratory rate
  • Drooling
  • Mild weakness
  • Stupor
  • Collapsing
  • Seizures
  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Elevated body temperature

Don't forget that if the concrete or asphalt is too hot for you to walk on in bare feet, it's also too hot for your pet!
