Things you can do to keep your pets safe this Summer!!!

  1. Never, ever leave your dog in the car;
  2. Make sure your dog has unlimited access to fresh water;
  3. Make sure your dog has access to shade when outside;
  4. Take walks during the cooler hours of the day;
  5. When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces (like asphalt) because it can burn your dog's paws;
  6. If you think it's hot outside, it's even hotter for your pet – make sure your pet has a means of cooling off;
  7. Keep your dog free of external parasites (fleas, ticks) and always keep them on heartworm protection-consult us about the best product for your pet;
  8. Consider clipping or shaving dogs with long coats (talk to us first to see if it's appropriate for your pet), and apply sunscreen to your dog's skin if she or he has a thin coat.

We try to make scheduling an appointment as convenient as possible for you. There are several ways to easily schedule an appointment for your pet to be seen at our veterinary clinic:

  1. Fill out our online appointment request form
  2. Contact us by phone at 337-806-8960
