Edward is our clinic cat. He is still learning proper hospital etiquette and is excelling at bonding with each of our clients and patients. If you haven’t met him please stop by to say hello! He makes us smile everyday. Edward spends his weekends with Dr. Keith and his family being spoiled.
DENTAL DISEASE HURTS!
Did you know that a healthy smile can lead to a longer, happier life!
Oral hygiene is the most neglected aspect of pet care. It is estimated that 90% of pets over 2 years of age have significant dental disease. This should come as no surprise as the same conditions that lead to our tooth and gum problems also occur in our pets' mouth. How long could we go without brushing our teeth?
Very serious side effects can occur when infection in the mouth is left untreated. Bacteria can spread from the mouth to the heart, kidneys, and joints creating life threatening illness.
We would like to help you significantly extend your pet’s life by keeping their breath fresh and their teeth clean. For the month of FEBRUARY we are offering special pricing on dental cleanings and have our dental wellness package available. If you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact us.
Our PAH family grows every year. Last year five team members welcomed a baby to their family. We also have a lot of students interested in veterinary medicine spend time at the hospital. From high school co-op students, to veterinary students completing their externships, to international veterinary students, we love helping them develop their skills and passion for helping animals and their owners.
TRUST, COMPASSION, RESPECT
The faces of the beloved animals entrusted to our care are always changing as well. We find great fulfillment in watching puppies and kittens grow and contribute love and laughter to each of their families. Our team members are passionate about educating each owner on the benefits of animal health care that will ensure their new family member lives a long, healthy life. Losing a furry family member is never easy as each pet carries a special place in our hearts. It is our honour to ensure this final visit to our hospital is one of love, compassion and respect.
HEARTWORM AND LYME DISEASE
This year we have seen a rise in Heartworm, Lyme and other tick-borne disease positive cases in this area. Heartworm disease is transmitted by mosquitoes and we sure do have a lot of them around. We are continually seeing more and more ticks each year in this area which are capable of transmitting Lyme and other tick-borne diseases to our canine friends and ourselves. If you would like more information on these diseases please visit our online library for more information. If you have not started your canine friend on preventative medication please do not hesitate to ask our team for more information as it is never too late! We have a variety of different preventative products to choose from to suit your dog’s lifestyle.
Being a community-based business is a core value of our practice. We are happy to sponsor or participate in many events throughout our region. This past December we invited all animal lovers to bring their furry family members in to have their picture taken with Santa. The proceeds from this event were donated to the food bank. Also, Purina Veterinary Diet have partnered with the hospital to donate pet food to the food back. Also for the past three years is the “Paws for a Cause” program. From December 1-31st, the total amount paid from nail trims was donated to the local food bank. Approximately 82 furry friends donated to this cause. We love that we were able to help both animals and their owners during the Christmas season.
We are always open to hearing from you so please feel free to call or email us any time. We thank each of you for entrusting us with your furry family members and appreciate each time you refer a friend or relative to us. This compliment is second only to a wagging tail or loving lick from one of our patients!
