Been a While

Sorry folks, it has been  while since the last blog.   The busy-ness of the winter added to being sick with that nasty bug have taken my free time.   I wanted to post a little about emergencies of late.   It has been a busy winter for emergencies: in part because of the extra people in town, but also because it seems like there are just a lot more emergencies lately as well- during the day as well as at night.  As is often the case, we see a LOT of pets with fight wounds and being hit by cars.... this is a constant.  Lately, however, there have been increases in poisonings.  Specifically as is true to the season, antifreeze poisoning has been a problem; remember even a small amount can be deadly.  The largest problem recently has come as a result of new laxity on our laws..... marijuana poisoning.  In the last several months there has been a meteoric rise in this form of poisoning largely from medical marijuana and while we are not here to judge, we ARE here to keep your pets safe and healthy.  PLEASE, please remember this drug is a danger to your pets.  The danger is magnified by the fact that many medical products are highly concentrated AND in palatable vehicles, therefore become a unique and challenging danger to your pets.  Remember to keep all medicines out of reach of pets and children and if there is a mishap, please do not be afraid to tell your veterinarian so we may take proper treatment action to resolve the poisoning effectively.
 

  On a lighter note, for all you who had photos with Santa or donated to our fund-raiser, you will be pleased to know we raised about $400 to go toward the purchase of a Guide Dog Harness for someone.  The funds will be sent to Guide Dogs For The Blind in California to be earmarked for someone in need.   Thanks for your generosity.  Look for a Bose product to raffle in the near future for our next fund-raiser.  Any suggestions for a recipient are welcome.  we have some ideas but would love to hear from you too.
