Lyme disease is a real threat to our geographic area, and the prevalence is increasing. One of the best ways to protect your pet is by having your dog get a Lyme vaccination. Take advantage of our beautiful Minnesota weather by hiking and being outside, knowing your pet is fully protected from this nasty parasite.
Heartland Animal Hospital in both Faribault and Owatonna go even a step further in protection, by offering a combination vaccination for Lyme and Leptospirosis. Don't let fear of disease or illness for your dog keep you indoors when there are preventive solutions available. Here are a few other preventive steps to take:
Heartworm can have devastating consequences for your pet, including death. It is especially tragic when dogs and cats succumb to heartworm disease when it’s entirely preventable. Now that warm weather is finally here, your dog or cat has a much greater likelihood of acquiring heartworm just by being outside since the most common route of transmission is a bite from an infected mosquito.
It can be scary when your pet has ingested a potentially toxic substance, especially when you didn’t see what he licked or swallowed. To help raise awareness of the issue and prevent illness or fatality in pets, the American Veterinary Medical Association named the third week in March Pet Poison Prevention Week. Below are some hazards you should be especially aware of this time of year.
Record breaking winter is an easy headline. As everyone knows, -36 degrees Fahrenheit isn’t fun and 2018–2019 will certainly be one for the record books. I am certainly looking forward to warmer spring weather.
This year, we once again are expanding our services with new diagnostics and equipment. We have added on-the-farm lactate readers to our colic diagnostics. Read more about lactate and what it can do for your horse in the unfortunate event of an emergency.
