Did you see worms in your dog or cat's feces?

Intestinal parasites are very common in puppies and kittens. Adult dogs and cats are also susceptible to them. If you notice worms in your pet's feces and your puppy or kitten is still eating, drinking, and acting normal then please call the clinic during normal business hours so we can help advise you. If you would like to learn more about parasites in the mean time feel free to check out the links below.

Does your dog like to go swimming?

If your dog goes swimming, it can be more prone to developing ear infections, especially if it has floppy ears. To help reduce the risk of developing ear infections, flush your dog's ears out with ear flush after swimming/baths and gently wipe them out. This will help dry the ear canal so there is not a warm, damp environment for bacteria and yeast to grow. 

Examples of appropriate ear flushes include: T8 Keto Flush, Pheonix Ear Cleansing Solution, or Zymox

Do not use water, soap, hydrogen peroxide, or alcohol to flush your dogs ears as these options will cause more harm than good.
