June is Pet awareness month and good thing it is, as summer always seems to be the busiest season for pet injuries and or afflictions. Today we’re going to talking about First Aid for your dog.
What would you do if your dog needed emergency care out at camp or on a trip? Would you be prepared? Would you even know what to do? Below, we have listed some things that would be good to have on standby, if you ever needed them. Keep A First Aid Kit – Suggested items for your kit’s contents:
Gauze pads, gauze rolls (can be used for muzzling and bandaging)
Cotton padding, cotton balls (can be used for wiping and bandaging)
Thermometer (digital is easiest and safest to use rectally)
List of any possible drug interactions your dog may have
Emergency numbers 705-671-3949 – or your regular vet’s phone number
For our complete first aid booklet with extensive information on what to do if your pet gets into an emergency, please pick up our Canine 1st Aid booklet at our reception for a small donation of $5.00 or more toward our Oscar Foundation Fund.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. OPERATING HOURS
We are OPEN with the following hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 8 am - 6 pm Wednesday: 8 am - 7 pm Friday: 8 am - 4 pm Saturday & Sunday: Closed
