A little levity for the weekend…

Yesterday we celebrated Nancy’s 30 Year Anniversary of working here at NEVH! (Yes, you read that right: 30!!!) A huge thank you to all of your hard work and dedication! We couldn’t do it with out you! What better way to celebrate than TACOS?!? 🤤 🌮

A little Monday night levity.
As Veterinary Technician Appreciation Week comes to a close, we want to give a shout out to all of our wonderful staff! Without their hard work and compassion we wouldn’t be here! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you do!
Excellent comparison picture regarding dog body language!
Learning to read body language. 🐕
Here’s a shot from way back in 2013. We working with a severely reactive dog who’d never been this close to another dog without exploding.
For those of you looking to better understand dog body language and warning/danger signals, this picture is a great example in contrasts.
Look at Manny. Body relaxed and oriented normally. Face is relaxed, eyes are relaxed and blinky. Ears (what’s left of them!) are up and at their normal position. Mouth is open and relaxed. Everything shouts: I’m good, and comfortable and safe.
Now look at Gracie. Body is tense, and oriented away from Manny. Face is tight and tense, and eyes wide and non-blinking. Ears are pretty pinned back. Mouth is tense and closed tightly. Everything shouts: I’m not good, I’m worried, I’m tense, I’m on-edge, I’m uncomfortable and far more likely not to be safe.
Often people want to help dogs like Gracie to feel more comfortable by talking to them, getting closer to them, letting them, or letting their dog close the distance and possibly interact…all in the misguided belief that she will “learn” that people or dogs are “good things”. Bad move. If you see a dog who looks like Gracie, honor all that she’s communicating, and you’ll have a much better chance of keeping people and other dogs safe. You’ll also help dogs like Gracie learn to trust you, other people, and other dogs if none are allowed to pressure her.
P.S. For anyone wondering, this picture is after we had Manny walk with Gracie after we’d slowly gotten her used to his presence at a greater distance. That said, we never allowed him to sniff her, walk around her, put his face to hers. He was always under our control, and there was no free exploration. That’s how you get dog fights. :)

RECALL ALERT - FROMM FAMILY FOODS is issuing a voluntary recall of approx. 5,500 cases of Fromm Shredded can Entrée dog food due to potentially elevated levels of Vitamin D.
Consumers should stop feeding the products listed in this recall to their dogs. https://bit.ly/3A9mvaV
Yeah, it is like that, isn’t it?
Sounds about right.
Northeast Veterinary Hospital updated their business hours.

Hello friends! We wanted to give you an update on the hospital’s plans for seeing in-person appointments again. We are phasing in a few doctors seeing in-clinic appointments now, with more being added over the next couple of weeks. We will continue to offer curbside service as an option for clients who prefer it, and will continue exclusively curbside service for technician appointments at this time. Please continue to text us when you arrive, and a technician will check you in.
For now, we will continue to require masks be worn inside, and in most cases we prefer only one person accompany their pet into the building. If you are experiencing any COVID symptoms, we ask that you please reschedule your appointment, or make arrangements for another family member or friend to bring your pet.
We ask for your patience, as we transition to offering both curbside and in-clinic appointments. We have been working curbside for over a year, and it will take us some time to work out the kinks. We look forward to seeing you--we've missed you!
Hot enough out there? As temperatures and humidity rise, so does the risk of overheating (called heat exhaustion) for our pets.
Humans can sweat and we’re really efficient at keeping cool, but our pets don’t sweat like we do and their systems aren’t nearly as efficient at keeping cool. Our furry family members can easily overheat and this can quickly become a medical emergency.
What to watch for to assess if your pet may be overheating:
Panting that does not resolve in a reasonable amount of time and seems faster than usual (if you think it’s faster and lasting longer, it probably is)
Dooling if your pet is not usually a drooler, lethargy to the point of not responding to you
Glazed eyes - eyes that aren’t following you or seem non-responsive
Additional possible signs: confusion, weakness, diarrhea and vomiting or muscle tremors.
If you think your pet is showing signs of heat exhaustion: Call your veterinarian as soon as possible and seek emergency care. Even if your pet seems to be recovering, they may need to be monitored for shock, dehydration, kidney failure, and other possible complications of heat exhaustion. Your vet will be able to advise you about next steps.
If veterinary care is not available:
1. Take your pet to a cooler area (preferably indoors) immediately.
2. Lower their body temperature by wetting them thoroughly with cool water. Do not use cold water! It seems counterintuitive, but cooling too quickly can actually be just as dangerous as heat exhaustion. For very small dogs or puppies, use lukewarm water instead of cool.
3. Apply more cool water around their ears and paws. This helps reduce fever.
4. Put them in front of a fan to dry off.
5. As they continue to cool down, provide them with small amounts of lukewarm or cool water to drink. Again, not cold water, and no ice!
Swimming lessons are going well 😹

It’s International Guide Dog Day!! Let’s show our support for those hardworking K9’s!! 🐕🦺🦮
Did someone say car parade at the Guide Dog Foundation?!
Good morning & Happy #InternationalGuideDogDay from the Guide Dog Foundation 😁!
We are kicking off the day with a very special car parade around our campus square at 11AM.
If you live local to our National Headquarters in Smithtown, NY, on Long Island, please join us for the line up for the parade prior to 11AM at the 50 acre Road entrance to the Foundation. The address to the Foundation is 371 East Jericho Turnpike, and our National Administrative Center is across the street from our Training Center on 50 acre Road off of Jericho Turnpike.
Of course, please brings your pups as passengers if you'd like 🐾!!
We are asking that those in the parade refrain from honking, the parade will double as a training exposure experience for our dogs in for formal training.
We can't wait to see some friendly faces & pups!
