FROM OUR VETS: Spring is springing already?

Dr. Baillie was featured on KARE 11 TV last week talking about wildly early warm temperatures this year... 75 degrees before St. Patrick's Day!... and the Baillie family golden retriever Joso has been doing his own demonstration.  Joso is very light-colored, and he's been showing wood ticks and deer ticks frequently over the last few weeks as he comes in from the yard. As the vet's dog, Joso is protected year round, and that is what we advise -- all parasite control should be used twelve months of the year for both dogs and cats.  We have Frontline Plus in stock, as well as Heartguard for heartworm/intestinal worm protection.   There has been a significant increase in other tick borne diseases (Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichia) in the last few months,  and we are recommending to clients to get started now to protect your companion animals from these pests. 

 

Pet Food is Piling Up!

It's only been one week since we announced that we would again be collecting pet food for the Valley Outreach Food Shelf, and already our consultation room has more than 300 pounds stacked in a rapidly-overflowing corner.    Thank you so much for your generosity!   Dr. Baillie reports that, after the Pioneer Press picked up our announcement on March 8,  calls and drop-ins began to increase from all over the Moe atop foodOfficial clinic greeter Kitty Moe enjoys perching on the pet food!east metro.   "Bags of dog and cat food are coming in, and some bird food as well", said Dr. Baillie.  "At this rate, we'll have to make two trips to the food shelf.  Last year's total was 650 pounds of food, and it looks like we'll exceed that this year."   The clinic will accept donations through the end of March FoodShare month; any brand, any size, for any kind of pet.
