🐶 It's one of your dog's favorite days of the year - National Dog Biscuit Day! On a day like this, it's important to remember that more treats does not equal more love. In moderation, biscuits are an acceptable treat, but a healthy weight is most important to your dog's overall health.

#AERC12HolidayPetDangers It’s day 12, our final day of sharing common holiday pet dangers, & today we’re focusing on the traditional feast entrée, ham! We hope our shortlist these past few days has been insightful & that pet owners remember that it’s more important than ever to be careful with these things this year – emergency care may be hard to find, especially for less urgent issues. So it’s not worth it to take any chances and feed your pet something they shouldn’t have like rich, fatty human food.

#AERC12HolidayPetDangers It’s day 10! Show of hands, who has snow globes around the house? 🙋‍♀️ If yes – keep them out of your pet’s reach! If a snow globe breaks, not only is the broken glass hazardous, but the liquid inside most snow globes is toxic! Learn about more holiday pet dangers here: https://aercmn.com/common-christmas-pet-dangers/

#AERC12HolidayPetDangers Day 9, let’s talk lights, cords, & battery-operated items! These all pose a threat to pets who like to chew! Check out the graphic to learn more. Read about other holiday pet dangers here: https://aercmn.com/common-christmas-pet-dangers/

#AERC12HolidayPetDangers For day 8, we’re covering a big danger in the kitchen: yeast dough!

#AERC12HolidayPetDangers For day 6, we’re highlighting xylitol (also called "birch sugar" or "wood sugar") – a sugarless sweetener that is very toxic to pets. The most common exposure to xylitol in pets is chewing gum, but xylitol can be found hiding in a number of products, including many favorite holiday treats. Always be extra cautious with xylitol products & pay close attention to ingredients labels! Learn more about the dangers of xylitol here: https://aercmn.com/xylitol-its-not-so-sweet

#AERC12HolidayPetDangers It’s day 5 so let’s talk about holiday plants! So many plants can cause a variety of symptoms (ranging from mild to deadly) if our pets suffer exposure. This is why it’s crucial for pet parents to always investigate every plant & bouquet that enters the home!

INTRODUCING EMMA Emma was release from the puppy mill last Friday. She is only 1.5 years old and a Bichon Frise. She was let go because she did not like the mill owner. Clearly he could not groom her either. She just weaned her last litter 3 weeks ago. It’s hard to imagine how she was even able to raise a litter in her condition. She was also born in that mill and could be the daughter of Charlotte. Over the weekend we discovered she likely had a UTI, so got her on meds immediatly for that. Her fur was extremely matted and it was going to be impossible to groom her and tend to all the issues going on. Knowing her trust could not be damaged, we were forced to wait until we could get her in to a vet for sedation and grooming. She had hair, wax and dirt woven into a good sized wedge filling both ears, her face was matted with food and dirt, her back end was matted over to the point where it was nearly blocking her urine and on top of that, she had fur growing up into her insides. It was also discovered that she has a missing toe. She is very skiddish with people, yet it’s obvious she really wants to be brave and will walk near people. She LOVES the other dogs and has recently started to try to initiate play with them. She has been enjoying chew treats and running around the house. Overall she is making great progress from where she started last Friday and we hope for continued progress for this beautiful young girl. She is going to have a beautiful coat once her fur grows back! She will have the remainder of her vetting completed on March 21st. Watch for more updates on Emma. Special thanks to Critters & Such Pet Care for grooming this sweet girl and tending to all of her special needs.
