Do you have a first-aid kit prepared for your pet? A few items that we recommend to always have on hand are gauze pads, adhesive tape, cotton balls, tweezers, oral syringe, a towel, and a card with your phone number and your pet’s name, hospital name and address, and your veterinarian. You can never be too cautious! #NationalPetFirstAidAwarenessMonth
We hope that you have a wonderful #NationalPetParentsDay tomorrow with your pet. You all are PAW-MAZING pet parents!

While kids are searching for baskets of treats and eggs hidden by the Easter bunny, remember to keep your pets safe inside by making sure that these Easter dangers stay out of reach.
Eating the ears off the chocolate Easter bunny is a household tradition, but don’t let your dog or cat help. Chocolate is toxic to your pets and could result in an expensive Sunday emergency vet visit. Instead, try this Easter egg toy for your pooch and these Peeps-inspired toys for your kitties.
Make sure to hide sugar-free candies sweetened with xylitol up higher than your Easter-basket-hunting pets can reach. Even in small amounts, xylitol is extremely toxic to your furry family.
Lilies are especially dangerous to cats but should be kept from dogs as well. Lilies in the genera Lilium and Hemerocalis are all toxic. This information should be on the tag of the plant, and when in doubt find a safer option.
4. Plastic grass
The plastic grass used to line Easter baskets and displays is an accident waiting to happen for your pets. It isn’t digestible and can cause very serious tummy troubles. Thankfully, there are paper options that are safer if you must use them.
5. Table scraps
Your Easter meal is likely delicious, and your dogs and cats probably agree – but be sure that your guests know not to feed them any scraps and remember to secure the trash once the feast is over. People food is too rich for your pet’s belly.
6. Candy wrappers
Wrappers pose dangers to both dogs and cats whether there is candy inside or not. Plastic and foil cannot be digested and can cause discomfort if they don’t pass naturally. If there is candy or chocolate inside, then it’s double trouble. It’s best to keep wrapped (and unwrapped) human treats out of reach of your pets.
We hope that you have a wonderful and safe Easter holiday tomorrow with your family and loved ones. Happy Easter!
With Easter coming up in a few days, we’d like to remind you of a few Easter Pet Safety Tips!
Say no to chocolate and other candies, keep festive Easter grass and other toys out of reach, and sugar-free treats that contain xylitol.
Have a fun and safe Easter holiday with your family and your pets!
Monday is #NationalPetDay! Without your amazing pets we would have no one to care for with such love. Thank you for being amazing pet parents!
Did you know that more than one million pets in the U.S. have heartworms? Heartworms are life-threatening parasites that can live in your pet’s system and can lead to heart failure, liver damage, and worse.
Heartworms are preventable. During #NationalHeartwormAwarenessMonth, give us a call to discuss the best options for your pet.

Monday is #RespectYourCatDay, another day to highlight and celebrate your feline-friend! Share a photo of your cat below and share a few details about them!
Doing some spring cleaning? During #NationalAnimalPoisonPreventionWeek, we remind you of the harmful cleaning products to your pets. Common cleaning products that contain phenols, phthalates, formaldehyde, bleach, and perchloroethylene can cause serious internal harm to your pet. Make sure to read the labels of your cleaning products and keep out of reach from your pets.
Observed each year on March 23rd, National Puppy Day celebrates the unconditional love and affection puppies bring to our lives. Their cuddles and wiggles make us smile and without a doubt, there are squeals of delight when there are puppies around!
The day also brings awareness to the need for care of and homes for orphaned pups as well as to educate people about the horrors of puppy mills across the country. Puppies are a big responsibility. Be sure to consider everything involved and adopt from a shelter. The puppies there need love and a home just as much as any other and they grow into loyal pets, too!
According to the ASPCA, approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year. Some of these dogs come with litters of puppies. If you’re seeking a puppy to start your furry family, check the shelters first. When these abandoned and abused animals find their way to a shelter, each one needs a forever home and their potential is limitless.
Dr. Ken Wassermann graduated from Washington State University in 1971 and started work at Diamond Veterinary Hospital shortly thereafter. In 1986 he purchased the Evergreen Way Veterinary Hospital, a satellite clinic of Diamond Veterinary. He and his wife, Melrene, operated the practice for the next fourteen years. Shortly after his retirement, “Doc Wass” soon grew bored with retirement and came back to work part time at Diamond Veterinary Hospital. His life ended at an all too early age due to heart disease when he passed away in 2001.
Dr. Wassermann was a compassionate and caring veterinarian for both his clients and his patients. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved a variety of interests-woodcarving, flying, working on his VW, and rooting on the Mariners.
In his memory, Diamond Veterinary Hospital created the “Wassermann Fund”. This is a fund to assist pet owners unable to fully finance the veterinary care for their pets. The fund is overseen by the Veterinary Care Charitable Fund, a 501c3 arm of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Recipients of assistance from the fund must meet certain criteria.
Since 1963, the Foundation has been helping veterinarians help animals with support for education, animal welfare, disaster relief and research.
Next week is #NationalAnimalPoisionPreventionWeek, a week dedicated to spreading the word of common household items that are dangerous for your pet. A few common household items that are toxic for your pets include human medications, flowers, chocolate, fertilizer, pest control products, and Xylitol.
When you think of your pantry, images of household staples, cooking supplies, snacks and other food items come to mind. In reality, what you may find is a pantry full of potential pet poisons.
In honor of National Poison Prevention Week, March 20-26, the toxicology experts at Pet Poison Helpline reviewed their case data and developed a list of the top 10 potential pet poisons commonly found in your pantry. To help visualize the dangers, Pet Poison Helpline has released an infographic.
“Most people don’t realize that common household foods for human consumption can be toxic to pets, especially if they consume them in large quantities” said Dr. Renee Schmid, a senior veterinary toxicologist at Pet Poison Helpline. “Many pets join the family in the kitchen, and often have access to the pantry. Hidden inside that pantry are a number of items that are either dangerous on their own or contain ingredients that can be toxic to pets.”
KNOW THE SIGNS OF POISONING IN DOGS AND CATS
Signs of poisoning in dogs and cats can range tremendously based on the underlying poison. If you think your dog or cat has been poisoned, call your veterinarian or Pet Poison Helpline at 855-764-7661 immediately for assistance! When it comes to poisoning, the sooner you treat your dog or cat, the better the outcome.
