How To Keep Your Pet Cool In The Summer

How To Keep Your Pet Cool In The Summer

On very hot days, limit exercise to early morning or evening hours, and be especially careful with short-nosed pets, who typically have difficulty breathing. Asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet's paws, so walk your dog on the grass if possible. Always carry water with you to keep your dog from dehydrating.

Jack

Jack

Jack is a sweet and wonderful boy who came to us for the first time suffering from pneumonia. He had to be hospitalized for several days on oxygen, and he won all of our hearts....as did his sweet human children siblings who decorated his oxygen chamber with pictures and get well wishes. 

Lilly

Lilly

Lilly was first diagnosed with kidney and bladder stones a few years ago. She had surgery to remove her bladder stones. Unfortunately, surgery to remove kidney stones can be very dangerous and usually is only done if the stones are going to obstruct the kidney. Sadly, this was the case a couple years later for poor Lilly, and she had to have a stent placed in her ureter at the specialty center. All was well again until recently, when she came in lethargic and in pain.

Rusty

Rusty

Rusty came to us due to a several day history of poor appetite and lethargy. He had a very enlarged lymph node under his jaw, and his blood work showed very high calcium levels. First on our list of likely diseases was, unfortunately, a type of cancer called lymphoma. We prepared his owner for some likely bad news, but we did the tests to confirm the potential diagnosis- a sample of the enlarged node looking for cancer cells.
