January 2017 News Letter
Happy New Year everyone. I hope you brought the new year in with a bang. I imagine that you all have made your new years resolutions... I never keep mine. I remember for about three weeks than it is completely out of my head. Well Christmas is over and I am sure that you are taking down your decorations or have already done so. January is kind of a nice month for things to do: First it is National Train your Dog Month, Walk Your Pet Month and Adopt a Rescued Bird Month, the 2nd is National Pet Travel Safety Day, the 14th is National Dress Up your Pet Day, the 22nd is National Answer Your Cat's Question Day, the 24th is Change a Pet's Life Day, and the 29th is Seeing Eye Dog Birthday. Wow what a bunch of fun things to do with your pet or pets. I hope you all have a very good 2017. Let's make it a great year for our pets and loved ones. It's a New Year and new adventures.
February is Dental Month. We will be offering a 20% discount on dental cleanings in February. The discount includes the dental cleaning, anesthesia, day care, and oral examination but does not apply to blood work, extractions, or extensive dental procedures etc. Call early to make your appointment. We recommend pre-anesthetic blood work before the dental. This test will help us diagnose any problems that may exist before we administer anesthetic. This also gives us a base line result even if everything is within normal limits.
