Give Your Pet a Safe Gift This Holiday Season

December 1, 2016

Your pet is a part of your family and you naturally want to include her in the holiday festivities, including giving her a new toy as a gift. At Turner Veterinary Clinic, we urge you to consider the following factors when choosing a present for your pet:

• Your pet’s size is a big consideration when it comes to giving him chewable toys. A small rubber ball may be fine for a poodle, but a large breed dog might choke on it. 
• Stitches, plastic eyes, ribbons, and ties attached to toys can quickly become a choking hazard if your dog or cat is able to get the item loose. Be sure to remove these items before giving your pet the toy to ensure her safety.

That is because dogs and cats are good at hiding their symptoms and don't have the ability to verbalize that something is wrong.

Come See Us When Your Pet is Well

October 1, 2016

October is National Pet Wellness Month. This purpose of this awareness campaign is to help pet owners understand the importance of preventive care. Visiting Turner Veterinary Clinic once a year when your pet is not sick or injured gives Dr. Huelsbergen the opportunity to check for unknown health issues, follow-up on previous treatment plans, and monitor her weight, growth, and behavior. We recommend bi-annual preventive care exams for senior pets due to their changing health needs. If you have a puppy or kitten, Dr. Huelsbergen will discuss the preferred vaccine and exam schedule at her first appointment.
