Happy Valentine’s Day!  Did you know it is also Pet Theft Awareness Day?  In celebration of the special feline or canine in your life, consider how well you have him or her identified and if this identification can be easily removed (for example a collar).  Two million pets are stolen annually in America alone so the threat is real.  Here are tips to help keep your feline/canine Valentine safe!

National Cat Health Month!

February 13, 2017

February is National Cat Health Month. Cats can seem more self-sufficient than dogs, but this is definitely not the case when it comes to their health. Cats need a veterinarian visit at least once a year, ideally twice a year. There are good reasons for this including:

  1. Changes in a cat’s health can happen in a short period of time.
  2. Sick cats often show no signs of illness, but early detection allows for early intervention.
  3. Semi-annual visits give you and your veterinarian the opportunity to closely monitor changes in your cat’s behavior and attitude that require further investigation.
