Is your pet scooting or licking their rear? It could be their a**l glands.

A**l glands are located on the rear of dogs and cats. The glands produce an oily, fishy-smelling fluid that helps with scent marking. Sometimes these glands can get impacted or infected.

Soft, consistent stool, as well as allergies, are common causes of irritation. If your pet is scooting, licking excessively, or showing signs of discomfort around their rear end, contact us! We will help to identify the cause and determine the best course of treatment.

With tomorrow being Hairball Awareness Day, we wanted to remind our cat parents about the importance of preventing hairballs.

Accumulated from excessive grooming, hairballs can build in your cat’s digestive system and either get coughed up or in some cases, need surgical removal.
If your cat is excessively vomiting, lethargic, loses their appetite, or has diarrhea or constipation, these may be signs of a blockage and you should contact our team immediately.

April is – and with instances on the rise – we are sharing what you need to know as a pet owner!

Heartworms are life-threatening parasites, transmitted by mosquitoes, that can live in your pet’s system and can lead to heart failure, liver damage, or worse. Heartworm disease is 100% preventable. Annual testing and year-round prevention can provide a lifetime of protection.

If your pet is due for their annual heartworm test or needs a refill on prevention, contact us today! For more info on heartworms, click here: https://bit.ly/3Tpuo7L

Did you know dental disease can cause significant, chronic pain in pets? This is one of the many reasons maintaining your pet’s dental health is vital to their overall well-being.

Brushing your pet’s teeth daily is a great way to practice good oral health. Along with the many flavored toothpastes that are out there, we can also recommend effective rinses, treats, and chews that help keep your pet’s smile healthy and as pain-free as can be!
