In the News
This month we give thanks for our friends and family, including our furry companions. As we all join around the Thanksgiving table to fill our stomachs, we need to be sure our pets are not enjoying their own meal in the kitchen garbage or off the kitchen counters. We receive many phone calls this time of year for dogs (and cats!) that have ingested turkey bones, sticks of butter, desserts and rising dough, just to name a few.
Most Minnesotans would agree that there is no place like home when looking for beautiful fall weather. Along with the changing foliage and moderate temps, we still get some sunlight in the evenings and don’t have to worry about those pesky mosquitoes and ticks… or do we?
The fall season isn’t as safe for our dogs as we think when it comes to parasites. As veterinarians, we’ve been successful helping people protect their beloved pets from disease such as heartworm and Lyme disease during the spring and summer, and we want that same protection to carry into the fall.
