We get phone calls almost every day with clients saying "help, my dog got sprayed by a skunk, what should I do"!
One other thing to keep in mind if you're dog gets sprayed by a skunk, is that there's a possibility a veterinary visit may be in order. Sometime the spray can be so strong and directed right in the eyes that it can cause eye ulcers. Call your veterinarian if your dog's eyes are red, itchy or painful.
Fleas and Ticks!!!
The safest flea treatment is flea prevention. Because of our warmer winters, we recommend that flea prevention be used year round. Fleas, their eggs and larvae are everywhere outside, and can also be living in your carpets during the winter months. Do not trust any over the counter products from pet stores, as these products can be unsafe as well. We recommend calling your veterinarian for a safe and effective flea prevention product.
Ticks are becoming an increasing problem for pets too. We are now seeing their populations rise even in the city. We are now continuingly finding more and more ticks on dogs when they're coming in for their grooms. We will remove them for you and collect them in a plastic bag if you'd like to have them tested. Ticks can carry many dangerous diseases including Lyme Disease. Please talk to your veterinarian about a safe and effective tick prevention product.
