Spay And Neuter Awareness Month

Spay And Neuter Awareness Month

Non-Neutered male dogs and cats are
more likely to "spray" or "mark" their
territories with urine. Do you want this
in your house? 

February is Spay and Neuter Awareness Month and we'd like to help spread the word of the importance of spaying and neutering your dogs and cats.

You may have read the popular article before but for those of you who haven't, we wanted to post it once more. The author is unknown and therefore shareable.

If you need more information on spaying or neutering your pet, please call one of our veterinarians. They will review with you the importance of spaying and neutering and schedule your pre-spay or neuter exam. Please read on.....

Merle says, "Please spay and neuter your pets!"



THE TEN WORST EXCUSES NOT TO SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PET

1. “Just one Litter and then we’ll have “Fluffy” spayed. (Studies show that the entire pet overpopulation stems from the “just one litter” mentality.)

2. “My dog doesn’t run loose, so he doesn’t need to be fixed.” (Murphy’s Law says otherwise.)

3. “We always find homes for the kittens/puppies.” (And that means that an equal number of kittens or puppies at the pound will be killed.)

4. “I want the children to witness the miracle of birth.” (Rent a video. Oh yes, and also make sure they witness the killing of innocent recently “birthed” kittens and puppies.)

5. “My dog is so cute and unique; there should be more of her.” (The shelters and pounds are full of cute and unique pets, most with only a few days to live.)

6. “It’s not natural.” (There hasn’t been anything “natural” about dogs since we began to develop breeds thousands of years ago.)

7. “I just couldn’t look my dog in the eye if I had him castrated.” (Watch it, you’re anthropomorphizing.)

8. “A female dog or cat should have at least one litter for health reasons.” (Medically, factually and ethically, indefensible.) (You actually reduce the chances of testicular, mammary and uterine cancer if spayed or neutered.)

9. “Neutering my dog will make him fat and lazy.” (Too much food and not enough exercise make a dog fat and lazy.) 

10. “Fixing my pet will change it’s personality.” (The primary influences on an animal’s personality are the kindness and care with which it is raised.)

If your pet is not spayed or neutered please schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians today and get it done! Thank you for promoting responsible pet ownership!

NATIONAL "ADOPT A SHELTER DOG" MONTH

SNAKES IN ARIZONA

Article written by Kim MacCrone-CVT 






Okay, we all live in Arizona because the weather is almost perfect, the sun is almost always shining, the golf courses are luscious, there are multiple and beautiful wide open spaces and endless hiking trails! 

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.



If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month




Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!




Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.


They were SCARED.
