“With everything going on in the world, it’s safe to say we all could use a little break.
Well, we’re all in luck because Monday, March 23rd is National Puppy Day.
The holiday was established back in 2006 by author Colleen Paige and has been celebrated every year since.
This year, you can mark the occasion by checking in on man’s best friend in six different adorable puppy cameras.”

Veterinary care is an essential part of our community and we want to assure you that our hospital is open and will continue to provide services at this time. We also want to work with you and our staff to limit direct contact in order to focus on safety for everyone during this pandemic. Accordingly, we ask that you follow the below steps for the safety of all:
• Upon arrival at the hospital, please remain in your vehicle and call us.
• After receipt of the call, we will check you in as soon as possible from outside the hospital.
• If you believe you need to be inside our facility, please discuss that request in advance with the Hospital Manager, Medical Director, and/or attending veterinarian.
• If you are at the hospital to pick up food or medication, please remain in your car outside the hospital and call the front desk. We will deliver your order to your car as quickly as possible.
• If you are not feeling well or may be at risk of exposure to coronavirus, please ask a healthy friend or family member to transport your pet to the hospital on your behalf.
• We will do our best to coordinate your visit from outside the hospital, including providing follow up instructions and taking payments.

Many have requested information on the current needs of our Animal Care Center. The items above – cat toys, bleach/wipes, dog toys, and peanut butter* – would be most appreciated at this time.
To drop off your donation, please go to the Animal Care Care during business hours, knock on the front door and a representative will answer and collect your donation.
- A reminder from the National Peanut Board – The good news is that regular peanut butter is safe to give your dog as a treat. The ingredient causing the problem is Xylitol, a sugar substitute found in lower or sugar-free products. If the peanut butter you give your dog doesn’t contain Xylitol, then your furry friend can enjoy it.
