Preventative Health Care

The intelligence of the saying ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’ cannot be argued.

For our pets this means regular grooming to avoid disease of the skin, ears, eyes and paws; dental care using special foods, brushing teeth or routine scaling and polishing; heartworm, flea and parasite prevention; proper nutrition to avoid obesity and nutritional deficiencies; and training and exercise to prevent boredom and behaviour problems. Because we are keenly aware of the special bond you share with your pet, we will spend the time to review all of this and more.

FUNFACT:

Male dogs do not actually need to lift their leg to urinate. A male dog urinates with one leg up to better mark his territory. This scent can tell another dog many things, including the size of the dog that did the marking. The size is judged by the height of the mark, so dogs try to make themselves seem as big as possible by lifting their leg to make a higher mark.
