What’s Your Emergency?
For most of us, our dogs are usually involved in every aspect of our lives. As a result, injuries can occur. Burns are uncommon in dogs, but they do happen. It’s important to know how to manage them should they occur.
The holidays are a wonderful time to spend with our furry friends. It can be tempting to not only share the love but to share the wonderful holiday food, too. But be warned! Veterinarians know this time of a year as a bad one for pancreatitis.
It’s 3 a.m., and you’re sound asleep. Suddenly, your dog is coughing. Or is he gagging? Wait! Is he choking?! You leap out of bed to check on him, and he’s already gone back to sleep. Dogs make all kinds of funny noises, and most don’t signal a problem. So when should you be concerned?
Summer is a great time to be a dog owner! Long days, water activities and outdoor sports make for wonderful times with your companion as long as you stay aware of hot weather risks.
Dogs are curious and love to try out new, tasty treats (food and otherwise), and this season has an abundance of them. Unfortunately, some of them can turn your holiday into a disaster.
