September is National Disaster Preparedness Month

National Disaster Preparedness Month means now is the time to put together a plan for yourself and your family (including your pets) should disaster strike without notice.

Every year there are countless pets rescued after natural disasters and unfortunately only a low percentage are reunited with their families. Having a pet preparedness evacuation plan can help ensure you are reunited with your pets as soon as possible.
Visit https://www.ready.gov/animals
 

While we hope that disaster doesn’t strike, there is no doubt that advanced planning saves lives.

Every pet receives a COMPLIMENTARY pet ID card ( your pets license for traveling) with a wellness exam and vaccinations.

For a healthy body your pet needs a healthy routine.

September is National Responsible Dog Ownership and Happy Healthy Cat Month.

World Rabies Day Sept 28th

Cats can go years with underlying diseases before showing symptoms. Prevention is always safer and less expensive than treatment, and is why your cat needs to be seen at least once a year by your veterinarian.

Rabies is a virus that effects the central nervous system. Animals get it from bites or scratches from infected animals. Keep you and your pet protected with routine vaccinations.
