Xylitol is a common sweetener, and xylitol poisoning in pets has become a common emergency. You may have this potentially deadly poison in your purse, pantry, or pocket right now. You’ve got a survival plan for family get-togethers, high school reunions, and bad hair days, but what about when a real disaster strikes? Be sure to include your pets in your plan! Think your indoor-only pet – and your home – are impervious to a potential parasite infestation? Think again! One pet owner learned this lesson the hard way.
While enjoying the longer days with your best pet friends, make sure they’re protected from those blood-sucking, party-crashing mosquitoes! Mosquitoes can transmit deadly heartworm disease, which has been diagnosed in all 50 states, to your pet. Because infected mosquitoes can also easily sneak inside your home, even indoor pets are at risk. Spring is a great time to make sure your pets are protected by getting them tested and on the most effective heartworm preventive. Contact us today to get started!
Surprise! Cat owners know one of the worst alarm clocks is your cat retching somewhere in the dark, knowing when you get out of bed there’s a fresh hairball waiting for your bare foot. The good news — you can help prevent your cat from getting them!

Caring for and bonding with our pets is a wonderful gift, but can be challenging at times. How many of these eight vital things do you keep in your pet owner bag-of-tricks to help you?
