No doubt about it, this has already been a sizzler of a summer in Aldie, Virginia. It’s important to remember that as hot as it is for us, it’s even hotter for our pets. Animals often struggle to keep cool because they don’t process heat as effectively as we do.

During these hot days, make sure to exercise your pet in the cooler morning and evening hours, provide plenty of cool, fresh water and shade, and never leave your pet unattended in a vehicle, not even for a few minutes.

Also, know the warning signs of heat stroke and exhaustion. They include:

Anxiousness
Excessive panting
Restlessness
Excessive drooling
Unsteadiness
Abnormal gum and tongue color

These symptoms can quickly advance to seizures, collapse, vomiting and bloody diarrhea. If your pet exhibits any of these symptoms, call us immediately at 703-327-0909 or 703-327-0871.

July is National Lost Pet Prevention Month was created because of the epidemic of lost pets filling shelters on the day after Independence Day fireworks. Frightened pets bolt—and the idea was to increase awareness so that fewer pets end up lost.

It’s not just a July 5th problem, however: The American Humane Association reports that more than 10 million pets are lost in the U.S. each year, and that only 15 percent of dogs and 2 percent of cats in shelters without ID tags or microchips are reunited with their owners.

The most important way to prevent a heartbreaking loss is to make sure your pet is always wearing identification—or at the very least, microchipped. If your pet should become lost, here are some steps to take that will hopefully help get them back home to you sooner:

Call the microchip provider to verify they have current info on your pet.

Create lost pet posters with a clear, full-body picture of your pet.

Share your pet’s picture and where last seen on social media and ask your friends and family to share it.

Call your local shelters, animal control and veterinary offices and inform them of your pet’s loss. Most shelters keep a running list of lost and found pets.

Time is important—if your pet has only been missing for a short period of time, mobilize your friends and family to go looking on foot, which is more effective than in a vehicle.

Leave worn clothes and food at your door or any other entrances a pet might use so they can catch the scent if they’re nearby.

Beware of scammers. If they cannot describe your pet beyond what is on the flyer or they don’t want to show an image of the pet, steer clear.

Search until found. Keep visiting shelters, keep asking around the neighborhoods, and keep posting flyers. There are pets out there that have been reunited with their owners months after they went missing. Don’t give up and your pet will thank you!

Don’t let your dog drink seawater, lake water or river water. Water from the ocean can bring on vomiting and dehydration, while lake and river water are often full of bacteria that can cause illness. If there’s a bloom of blue-green algae, your pet could be at risk of liver failure and nervous system damage if they ingest it.

Heat kills! Never leave your pet in a car, even for a quick trip! On a sunny 70 degree day, your car can heat up to over 100 degrees in minutes. Hot asphalt will scorch your pet’s paws—so if it’s too hot for your bare feet, it’s too hot for your pooch.

As the weather gets hotter, so does the asphalt. Many pet owners may not even realize this is something they should worry about. A good way to test the asphalt temperature is to place the back of your hand on the pavement and if you are unable to keep it there for 5 seconds then it is too hot. It is a good idea to: walk your pet in the early morning or late evening, walk them in the grass, or wait until it cools down.

Prioritizing patient care is a great way to bond with your clients, patients, and promote a positive work environment for your staff. Our LVT's make time to cuddle with our client's pets following procedures so they have a better experience coming out of anesthesia. This little girl just finished up a dental and is finding comfort with our technician while waking up and feeling a little "drunk" on her medications.

With so many people at home, fireworks sounds are going off early in our neighborhoods. Fireworks can be frightening to our pets and we want to make sure you know how to help your pets as the 4th of July comes closer!

Provide background noise. Soft, calming music, television, and fans can distract pets from the commotion.

Block off tiny areas. In an attempt to hide from the noise, small pets may try to weasel themselves into cramped spaces, where they could then become stuck.

Pets may become desperate and try to escape your home to get away from the noise. Make sure your pet’s microchip is up to date before the holiday in case they get out.

Offer cozy places to hide so pets feel safer and don’t seek those dangerously small areas.

Some pets with severe anxiety will need anti-anxiety medications to help them get through the holiday. Talk to your veterinarian to find out about these options.

“Bee” aware. Bees and other insects are on the move in spring and if your pet is stung, you’ll want to know what to do. Look for a stinger and remove if possible. You’ll also want to reduce swelling, which you can do with a paste of baking soda and water. Check with your vet about administering an antihistamine to stave off an allergic reaction.

Guide dogs are the unsung heroes of the streets. Every day, they make it possible for their owners to go out into society safely, which is a pretty paw-some thing. To recognize the many accomplishments of the world’s service dogs, April 29th has been set aside as International Guide Dog Day. This is a good time to high-five any guide dog trainers you know and to stop and ponder just how amazing, how multi-talented, our canine companions really are.

To honor the unique joy we get from our adorable dependents, April 26th has been set aside as National Kids & Pets Day. Why not celebrate by giving the little ones – and the furry and feathered and sometimes scaled ones – in your life a little extra love?

Today we celebrate #WorldVeterinaryDay! The 2020 Award will go to those in Environmental protection for improving animal and human health. Our very own staff works hard to improve the quality of life of their patients on a daily basis and reduce the spread of zoonotic diseases in our homes. At Dulles South Veterinary Center, we focus on the lives of small companion animals, cats and dogs.

Did you know the World Veterinary Association represents more than 500,000 veterinarians? These professionals study to learn and help over 8.7 million different species in the world. Some of the more well known industries focus in Large Animals, Equine, Exotic, Zoology, and pocket pets. This is not even taking account for the veterinarians in other industries such as food, research, and pharmaceuticals.

Celebrate them today, and show us how veterinary professionals improve your pet's everyday lives! Learn more here: http://ow.ly/hzLK50zfZpX

We understand the current situation, and made modifications for safety, we hope to continue serving you as we have for the last 20 years.

First, according to the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) pets do not get this virus. Because the virus can live on wet surfaces, it is advised to minimize face licking and to wash your hands after playing with or petting your pets (this should be done for good hygiene even without the fear of Coronavirus)

Did you know that kidney disease is the #1 cause of death in cats over 10? Or that nine out of every 1000 dogs examined suffer from kidney disease? Symptoms of kidney failure in pets include drinking more water and urinating more than usual, lethargy, vomiting, and diarrhea. You shouldn’t ignore any of these behaviors. They could, in fact, be signs of an emergency. If you suspect your best friend’s kidneys might need attention, give us a call at (703) 327-0871 or bring them in to see one of our experienced doctors as soon as possible.

Our Story

Dulles South Animal Emergency and Referral Hospital is a full-service veterinary emergency and critical care center. Our experienced veterinarians are equipped to handle any situation 7 days a week, 365 days a year, no appointment is needed for emergency and critical care.

Dr. Drew Luce, practice owner, aspired early on in his career that he would design a building, one location, dedicated to pet's health care. It took him 20 years, but in 2015, he opened the doors to Dulles South Veterinary Center (DSVC). DSVC is located on the southeast side of Loudoun County; and serves both the large and small communities within the Dulles South region and abroad including South Riding, Stone Ridge, Brambleton, Chantilly, Ashburn, Herndon, Sterling, and Haymarket to name a few.

During the design of DSVC, he tried to consider every aspect of comfort for you and your pet. You will find soundproof quiet rooms that offer a more home-like environment for certain procedures. Many areas of the hospital are designated for a particular service or treatment, such as grooming, boarding, dentals, isolation, and intensive care. The treatment area, the heart of the hospital, is an open concept design. This gives the team the ability to keep watchful eyes and give lots of attention to your pet as they recover from a procedure or surgery.

The hospital has a talented team of doctors and support staff that strives to provide pets and their people a five star experience. Best in class equipment, help us to offer almost every service your pet will need. Some of the service offerings include excellent health maintenance and disease prevention; diagnose, treat, and manage diseases; perform routine and advanced surgical procedures, including; oral, soft tissue, orthopedic, and minimally invasive laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures. To compliment all of these services, we also offer acupuncture, rehabilitation using hydrotherapy (underwater treadmill), laser therapy, hot/cold therapy, and massage and stretching techniques.

By providing the veterinary medical, surgical, emergency and critical care services in one location, your pet will receive the continuity of care he or she deserves. You do not need a referral to schedule an appointment or visit for emergency services. However, if you already have a primary veterinarian, we are happy to partner with them to provide the services they do not offer, including emergency services.

What an awesome facility Dulles South Veterinary Center is. As a member of the Pet Realty Network and busy Realtor I am asked all the time, "Where can I take my pet for the best care available?" Well now I know. Thank you Cat and staff for a great tour of the facility Friday. Look for my post soon on my Facebook JessJustSellsHomes.com.
