Summertime Trauma: The Hit-By-Car (HBC) Dog

Warmer weather can also mean more accidents. Know how to minimize the risk for injury in your pet. http://bit.ly/2Qhdxa9

As an emergency critical care veterinary specialist, I spend most of my time working in the ICU and ER. Unfortunately, in the ER, I see a huge spike in trauma to dogs and cats during the summer…particularly on days with nice, sunny warm weather.

Which household cleaning product and human medications are poisonous to your pets? http://bit.ly/37Fej4d

Easter is right around the corner 🐰 and you're celebrating with pets in the home, keep a close eye on these potential hazards:
• Chocolate: we all know to keep this away from our pets, but there are always cases of curious pets consuming this sweet treat around holidays. Caffeine and theobromide can cause vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, and more.
• Easter basket grass: shiny strips of plastic might not look appetizing to us, but cats and dogs are fascinated by this stuff! Ingesting Easter grass can lead to intestinal blockages (which can require emergency surgery!)
• Lilies: Easter lilies may be beautiful, but are exceptionally toxic to our feline friends! Every single part of this plant (leaves, stems, water in the vase, pollen, and petals) are dangerous and can cause acute kidney failure if not treated immediately.
• Xylitol: This common "sugar-free" substitute is safe for humans but causes an unsafe drop in blood sugar. Signs include vomiting, staggering/unable to coordinate walking, and collapse. Xylitol is commonly found in hygene products (toothpaste, mouthwash), sugar free gums and candies, but can also sometimes be found in sugar-free desserts, nut butters, and puddings.
• Easter dinner: fatty foods can cause GI upset and pancreatitis. Many side dishes include onions, garlic, nuts, raisins, and grapes which are dangerous on their own.
• Alcohol: pet parents may toast to happiness and health...but keep those drinks out of a pet's reach. Pets can also become intoxicated. Signs may include vomiting, disorientation, excessive panting, and tremors/seizures.

If you suspect your pet has gotten into something they shouldn't have, please give us a call or contact a pet poison resource such as ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center or Pet Poison Helpline.

We have been clients of Fremont Veterinary Hospital for over 10 years. They have taken excellent care of our fur babies. (We have had up to 4 at one time) They were very helpful when a few of ours passed away. They are a part of our life as well as the fur babies. Thank you to the Dr's, vet techs, and all the people at the front desk.
Please let me know if you have any job openings. I want to work at a vet clinic. Even if its just a desk job. Thank you
Shout out to Fremont Vet Clinic, even though they were booked solid today (Saturday), they still saw my pup who wasn't able to bear any weight on left hind leg. X-ray done and pain meds given. So thankful.
