Hello everyone!

We are finally posting our March Specials!

All prescription foods are 10% off!
All Shampoos are 3-5 dollars off
Here are some things to consider as we move through 2020:

  • Consider donating old towels and sheets to your clinic (please nothing crocheted as it is more difficult to thoroughly clean after each use)
  • Consider starting a small bank for your pet. Call us at the clinic for more details. For every $100 you put in the bank we will add $10. This could prove to be invaluable one day if your pet needs medical attention!
  • Re-visit some of the recipes we have posted to our webpage! We will also be starting a new recipe every month for non-diabetic patients without food restrictions which will be posted to our Facebook page!
  • Start training young pets now! Fifteen minutes is the average attention span of a young puppy. Trainers are able to assess when a young dog is still engaged in training. Consider using a trainer for your pet, there are options for all budgets!
  • We are not fans of tug-of-war play, the young teeth can be shifted or broken and it can create a habit of grabbing and not letting go. This can go south, especially if they grab and hold on to pant legs and sleeves of young children.
  • Plan to take your pet on a family trip? Line up hotels now for summer as hotels that allow pets tend to fill up quickly! Taking a young puppy or kitten along? Pick a less populated (but still safe) place to walk them. Hopefully there will be less disease prevalence.
  • Most new pets, as well as some that are anxious by nature, need a calming protocol. First we focus on exercise and socialization (unless the pet is strictly protection).  Interactive toys will help them bide their time while their people are gone. Sometimes we need calming meds that range from all natural up to serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SRRI) like Prozac. At this time of year, all mammals get a little spring fever and we can help! Calming tools and meds are 10% off. Articles are free!!

Dietary Tips

Dietary Tips

  • Choose your dog food carefully, follow AAFCO guidelines, see our website nutrition page for a complete list of the guideline.
  • Eating correctly affects dental health
  • We have diets on file for the difficult eaters
  • We post two new recipes a month for homemade treats
  • Read sometime about the importance of dental health - plaque and bacteria affect everything, especially general well-being!

Choose a food that is correct for your pet's dental state - don't let someone tell you THEY HAVE TO EAT DRY KIBBLE - they need to eat what will help them eat at a normal pace, chew correctly and thoroughly and enjoy what is in the bowl.

Here are a couple of sites that help animals eat better through a do-it-yourself toy and game system.

  • Remember eating at the correct pace helps the pet in so many ways!
  • Enrich Feeding time for you cat, Make a puzzle feeder
  • Six DIY food puzzles with stuff around the house
  • Why does my cat need a puzzle feeder?

Dental Cleanings and FYI

We have always taken pride in that we offer low-cost dental procedures (ultrasonic scaling and polishing). We have even been asked " why are they so cheap (my least favorite word). During a dental at our clinic, the pet is protected with a thorough exam, high quality sedative, tubes and monitors. We do not feel dentals should be cost-prohibitive. That said, we are going up by $10.00 per dental to cover the increase in cost that we have incurred in dental supplies, therefore' TAKE ADVANTAGE THIS MONTH!!!

Pawlickin' Chicken

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup ground chicken (cooked)
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ cup water

Preheat Oven to 375°
Combine all ingredients together and mix until a dough forms. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4" thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut into shapes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (for easy clean up), and place the cookies on the sheet (they can be rather close together as they don't grow much while cooking).
Bake 22-27 minutes. Transfer and let cool completely on a wire rack. Store the cookies on an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Please keep in mind these recipes are for pets without diabetes or other diet restrictions.
