World Pet Memorial Day

World Pet Memorial Day was created as a special day to memorialize beloved pets that have passed away. It is observed every year on the second Tuesday in June, and it is a great time to celebrate the lives of your pets. Although pets are only in our lives for a short time, they stay in our memories forever. It’s a small consolation, but it’s nice to know there are many ways you can honor the memories of your pets this June.

National Pet ID Week April 16 - 23

 

One out of three pets will go missing in their lifetime. A million animals enter shelters every year. Of that 40-60 % are pets lost from their homes and families. Many organizations exist to help owners and pets reunite, but the sad truth is without some form of reliable identification, most pets never find their way home.

Preparing Your Pet For Moving

Moving can be a stressful experience for you and your family, so don’t forget it can also be a stressful time for your pet. Pets can get used to a routine and what’s familiar. They also sense when their family is stressed and can pick up on your feelings. Therefore, it's vital to stay in tune with your dog or cat's demeanor and behavior during your packing, moving, and unpacking process.

Heartworm Awareness Month

We are so proud of our pet owners who take such loving care of their family members. They buy good quality food, keep their dogs and cats clean and sheltered, and protect them from infectious diseases. But many owners are still unaware of the dangers of heartworm disease, a leading cause of pet illness and death, especially here in the southeast.

Heartworms are long spaghetti-like worms that live in the hearts of dogs and a smaller number of cats and ferrets. They are spread by infected mosquitos. So whenever the outdoor temperature is up, our pets are at risk.

How Can the Weather Affect Your Pet?

Outdoor temperature plays a role in health from both an Eastern and Western perspective. A healthy body—whether human or animal—should be able to adapt easily to changes in weather, until it starts getting into extremes. However, if the body is already out of balance, your dog or cat may experience more inflammation as the temperature rises.

세계 중성화수술의 날- 매년 2월 마지막 화요일 (World’s Spay Day)

 

세계 중성화수술의 날- 매년 2월 마지막 화요일 (World’s Spay Day)

안녕하세요? Pleasant Hill Animal Hospital(플레즌힐 동물병원)의 박영은 수의사입니다. 매년 2월 마지막 주 화요일은 세계 중성화수술의 날로 지정되어 있습니다. 오늘은 중성화수술이 왜 필요하고 중요한가에 대해 말씀드리려고 합니다. 반려동물의 천국이라고 불리우는 미국에서도 연간 150만 마리의 반려동물이 안락사되고 있습니다. 또한 계속 늘어나는 주인없는 동물들을 안락사로 그 숫자를 줄이려 하고 있는데, 중성화 수술로 원치 않는 임신을 예방하는게 사회적으로 가장 좋은 방법인거 같습니다. 또한 중성화수술로 인한 긍정적인 영향( 질병과 행동문제 줄여줌)은 주인과 반려동물의 삶에 행복함을 더해 주는 요소가 되지 않을까 생각합니다.
