A little about me.....after losing a job I loved right after 911 I knew I had to do something else with my life. Something more heartfelt, something that I was passionate about.

I was curled up with my rescue dog Brandy when I decided to look into the animal world. Brandy was my inspiration for allowing myself to do what I love, be involved with animals! Since that revelation I have been in the professional pet business since February 1, 2002 and have grown together with all the people who love their pets!



I now hire women who have lost their jobs as well due to the recession and will continue looking to hire more experienced women to be on the team. I started …

Written by Rikki Schmidt.

With the holiday season fast approaching, pet owners should be reminded that festive foods and four legged friends don’t mix.



Thanksgiving

It’s a time for sharing but don’t share the holiday meal with your pets.
One year our veterinary staff treated a small dachshund and his even smaller sister that had somehow snatched an untended turkey off a coffee table and gorged themselves on the leftovers. Feeding pets table scraps can be a recipe for trouble.


-Turkey bones are hollow and break easily, splintering into sharp pieces, which, when chewed, can cause blockage and perforate the intestinal tract.

-A pet with a turkey bone lodged in his system may not show symptoms for 1 or 2 days. -When symptoms do occur they may include loss of appetite, depression, diarrhea or vomiting. While the bone may pass by itself, sometimes it must be surgically removed.


-Even if you don’t feed your pets from the table, it’s possible they might help themselves to untended food when no …

PARVO VIRUS IN DOGS

Unfortunately this time of year with all the new puppies being purchased as new Christmas Gifts, those of us who work at the Veterinarian Clinics start seeing them come in to the clinics with Parvo Virus.


What is Parvo Virus?


Parvo is a highly contagious viral disease most commonly seen in puppies under the age of one. Most commonly seen in puppies between the ages of 6-16 weeks and typically before they can complete their puppy vaccination series.

The virus is spread through the feces of an infected dog. The housefly is also a common carrier. The fly lands in the yard of a dog that already has Parvo, lands on the feces and carries the virus on its body in to your yard. It can be that easy. If the fly lands on your pet’s paws or nose or anywhere else on his body or his belonging, i.e., food and water bowls, blankets, etc. It can contract the disease within seconds. The virus can be carried in on clothes, shoes and even your hair once you’ve come in contact with it.
