You administer heartworm preventative that was purchased from a reputable source (your veterinarian!) every month without fail. So why on Earth do they insist that you test your dog on an annual basis?
Here are some interesting facts to consider in the case for routine testing:
April showers bring May flowers – and with those flowers comes one thing, pollen. Humans are not the only ones affected by pollen and the seasonal allergies it can cause. Animals, including our beloved dogs and cats, suffer from hay fever and allergies just like we do. And, unfortunately, their suffering is just as miserable as ours.
Known as atopy in dogs and cats, seasonal and environmental allergies brought on by inhaled particles of pollen, mold, and dust can be just as insufferable for your pet as they are for you. But, since your pet is unlikely to have (or present) the same symptoms we humans suffer, you may not recognize your pet’s symptoms for what they are.
Some intestinal parasites are easier to get rid of than others, and perhaps none is quite as formidable as the dreaded whipworm. A relatively common parasite of the dog (as well as coyotes and foxes), the whipworm, or Trichuris vulpis, can be hard to get rid of.
With summer just around the corner, many of our clients have been contacting us with questions about our boarding services. We understand that leaving your pet for an extended period of time can be stressful for you both. We also realize you want to know that your furry friend is in good hands and receiving the love and care he or she deserves while you’re away.
So, if you’re planning on hitting the open road this summer, but won’t be taking your pet along for the ride, here are some helpful hints for preparing your pet for his or her stay at Elmhurst Animal Hospital’s Dog Suites and Kitty Condos.
We accept walk-ins during our Doctor's Hours to meet your busy lifestyle. If you’d prefer to make an appointment, we offer those too!
