Meet Melissa, one of our very sweet cardio patients. We have been providing specialty care to Melissa for the past 3 years. She has degenerative valve disease and had three stents placed in her airway to help with her breathing. Nothing can stop this little girl, we love her!

Summer Safety Tips For Your Four-Legged Loved Ones
Now that the summer season is upon us, trips to the beach and days by the pool will be frequent. While at the beach, be sure your pets don’t drink the salt water as it can upset their stomach. Chlorine in the pool can also have this effect.
As temperatures rise, be sure to always have water available for your pet, especially after exercise, long walks or play time outside. Try to walk your pet earlier in the day to avoid heat exhaustion and extremely hot pavement. Signs of heat exhaustion may include the following:
- Heavy panting
- Thick drool
- Bright red gums
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- Balance problems
- Temperature in excess of 104 degrees Fahrenheit
Hey, Let’s Go For A Ride
Many pets enjoy going for a ride but always remember to keep your pet safe. Never leave your pet unattended in your vehicle, whether you leave the car running with the air conditioning on or if you have the car off and the windows slightly open. Leaving your pet in the car when the temperature outside is over 80 degrees Fahrenheit can lead to heat stroke, which can cause your pets organs to shut down and be fatal.
With the summer season comes a variety of outdoor pests such as fleas, ticks and mosquitoes so be sure to speak with your veterinarian about the best preventatives to use on your pet. Also, remember to keep your pets away from lawns that have been recently sprayed with chemicals, fertilizers and insecticides as these may be poisonous.
