Finding The Right Vet Care

   Just like finding a physician for yourself who you feel comfortable with,  it is equally important that you align yourself with a veterinarian or veterinary clinic that you trust. I often hear stories from clients who have not taken their "furry kid" to a vet for a considerable time because they feel the vet will overcharge them, take advantage of their emotional attachment to the pet and order unnecessary diagnostic tests, over-medicate or over-vaccinate, recommend procedures that don't really need to be done, etc.

Freedom from Cat Allergies

Great news for people who suffer from cat allergies! I just read this on the Freekibble Animal Rescue Site."

"The End Of Cat Allergies? Aug 5, 2013 by Nikki Burns

  For those suffering from feline allergies, a bright new hope on the horizon could relieve both their symptoms and their cat-adoring friends.  Imagine the symptoms caused by an extreme allergy - the sneezing, itchy eyes, and trouble breathing - being a thing of the past.  Imagine a person who was unable to be in the same room as a cat suddenly being able to stroke one without consequences.

Kennel Cough

In her regular blog called "Spot Speaks" by Dr. Nancy Kay, she discusses what kennel cough is and whether it is a wise choice to vaccinate your dog for it. She also talks about the various ways the vaccination can be administered. It is an excellent, informative piece and I highly recommend all dog parents read it.

Most doggie day cares, boarding facilities, and kennels require your dog to be inoculated for kennel cough with the Bordetella vaccine. But places like dog parks and grooming facilities generally do not; although these are also places where your dog can be exposed to kennel cough.
