Fundraise for Farley Month

Starting next Tuesday, October 1st, we will be collecting donations for the 2013 P&G Pet Care Fundraise for Farley Month campaign in support of The Farley Foundation.

Funds raised during this month-long event help subsidize the non-elective veterinary care of pets belonging to low-income seniors, disabled persons and women at risk of abuse. Change the world a little or a lot and support people and pets in need.

Stop in and donate any time throughout the month of October, anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated!

For more information on the foundation, you can visit their website at: http://www.farleyfoundation.org/

Stray kitten found

This poor stray was saved from almost getting run over by a transport truck today. She came into our clinic with a severe upper respiratory infection. Thank you so much to Animal Aide of St. Thomas-Elgin for taking on this sweet kitten. Any donations would be greatly appreciated to help the many cats that Animal Aide saves. And remember, please spay/neuter your pets!

This dog was found today in Belmont wandering around the Belmont Plaza. He is a young, intact, male Golden Retriever with 2 collars, a red collar and a chain. He has a dog tag from a veterinary hospital in New Brunswick. If he looks familiar to you, please contact us as he is currently at our hospital. Please share! We would love to reunite him with his family.

Update:  Thanks to the Valley Veterinary Hospital‘s help we have reunited this sweet boy with his owner. And thank you to all of you who shared his photo. Let’s also take this time to remind you of the importance of ID tags and microchipping for the quick recovery of your lost pet!

Photo request!

Bring us your pets’ photos!

We have a new magnetic board up in our waiting area to feature some of our wonderful patients. Unfortunately, it is looking quite sad and bare at the moment.

If you have a photo of your pet that you’d like to share, bring it in!

Hairball Awareness Day!

We forgot to celebrate Hairball Awareness Day yesterday!

A hairball is formed by hair ingested when your cat grooms itself by licking his/her fur. Most of it passes through the GI tract without any problems. However, if some of the fur stays in the stomach, you cat must then vomit it back up to get rid of it – Not so pleasant for the cat or your carpet.

The best way to prevent hairballs is by regularly grooming your cat! We recommend either the Kong Zoom Groom for short-haired cats (which you can purchase at the clinic) or the Furminator, which can reduce shedding up to 90% (we can special order this in for you)!

We also sell laxatives that help hairballs move through the digestive tract.

Stop by the clinic and ask us about what you can do to help prevent hairballs.
