Fall is finally here! The leaves are turning, the breeze is cooler, the rain keeps coming.
Allergies are still around, molds, ragweed and winter grasses, so if your dog is getting or is still itchy, scratching, licking excessively, or flopping ears, please call and make and appointment! We can help!
With Halloween around the corner, please keep an eye on your fur babies. Trick or treaters can be scary for them, and all the door bell ringing can set them on edge. Be watchful that they don’t scoot out an open door, maybe put them in a room with a closed door to ensure their safety. With the extra traffic that night, getting hit by a car is a real possibility. Also keep an eye on the candy bowl, keep it out of reach, as some candies can be toxic for those babies. If your pet happens to get into the candy, please call immediately for instructions. If we are not open, please call the Grayson County Animal Emergency Clinic at 903-337-0898.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are also upcoming, and lots of us want to treat our pets to some of our holiday meal, especially when they look up at us with those big eyes. Extra treats, especially fatty ones and bones, can be very dangerous for them. Pancreatitis is a condition we see often after the holidays, which can be caused by an increase in fatty foods. Symptoms include but are not limited to, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and painful abdomen. That piece of turkey skin is just not worth it! If your pet is exhibiting symptoms, please seek veterinary attention as soon as possible. If you need help and we are not open, again, please call the Grayson County Animal Emergency Clinic at 903-337-0898.
With all that said, we hope you all have safe and happy holidays!
