Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Acclimate To The Cold – Take your time when introducing your dog to the cold weather. Start with small amounts of time to help with the adjustment. Very quick changes in temperature can potentially cause hypothermia and frostbite.
Salt & Sand – Creating traction for your pet will help prevent your dog from slipping on ice. Consider your dog’s age when walking him or her on ice & through the snow. Serious injuries can happen at any age, but a fall for a senior dog can lead to a long recovery. Pet-friendly salt products are recommended. These products will be safe for your dog’s paws and as well if there is an accidental ingestion of the product. If accidental ingestion of any salt product does happen, please contact your veterinarian.
Protect The Paws – There are many options when looking for something to protect your dog’s paws during cold weather. There are preventative measures such as boots. There are products available to help keep your dog’s paw pads moisturized as well. These can be used before and after walks outside. Please contact your veterinarian for recommended products.
Bundle up – Many dog breeds are not affected by the cold weather. Certain breeds are very much affected by the cold weather. Such breeds would include, Greyhounds & Whippets. These breeds are sensitive to extreme temperatures, most likely because of their lack of body fat and thin coat. Many other breeds also have a lack of fat or thin coats. Consider this when thinking about whether or not to purchase your dog a coat to wear outdoors.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
