Welcome to the Pet Centre
Welcome to Mountainview Animal Hospital’s Pet Centre. One of the most important responsibilities of a veterinary hospital is to educate and be the primary source of health care information for pet owners. We take this responsibility seriously, and so we have created this section of the website to provide you with a variety of pet related information.
Parts of this section are dedicated to animal health care tips, and part are links and resources to enable you to delve deeper into a subject of interest. We hope you can find what you are looking for. As always, if what you need is not here, call us, we will be pleased to help.
The term “dog days” has nothing to do with dogs. It dates back to the ancient Romans, who believed Sirius, the Dog Star, added its heat to that of the sun from July 3 to August 11, creating exceptionally high temperatures. The Romans called this period dies caniculares, or “days of the dog”.
