Cold weather is coming. If your pet spends time outside, make sure they have shelter to get out of the cold and windy conditions. They should have blankets or hay to sleep on in outdoor houses to help keep them warm. Make sure they have fresh water. Even though it is cold, they still need to drink and cannot if their water is frozen in the bowl.

Approximately 30% of healthy cats, living in the United States are infected carriers of dangerous Bartonella Bacteria. Otherwise known as "cat scratch fever". Humans can become very ill from a scratch from a Bartonella positive cat. Symptoms can include fever, enlarged lymph nodes and abscesses at wound area. Signs in cats are gingivitis, foul breath odor and flea infestations. We can test your cat with a simple blood test to see if they have this disease. If your cat is positive, antibiotics are prescribed to treat the infection. Please call our office for an appointment.

To remove an attached tick, use a pair of fine-tipped tweezers or special tick removal instruments. These special devices allow one to remove the tick without squeezing the tick body. This is important as you do not want to crush the tick and force harmful bacteria to leave the tick and enter your pet's bloodstream. 1.Grab the tick by the head or mouth parts right where they enter the skin. Do not grasp the tick by the body. 2.Without jerking, pull firmly and steadily directly outward. Do not twist the tick as you are pulling. 3.Using methods such as applying petroleum jelly, a hot match, or alcohol will NOT cause the tick to 'back out.' In fact, these irritants may cause the tick to deposit more disease-carrying saliva in the wound. 4.After removing the tick, place it in a jar of alcohol to kill it. Ticks are NOT killed by flushing them down the toilet. 5.Clean the bite wound with a disinfectant. If you want to, apply a small amount of a triple antibiotic ointment. 6.Wash your hands thoroughly. Please do not use your fingers to remove or dispose of the tick. We do not want you in contact with a potentially disease-carrying tick. Do NOT squash the tick with your fingers. The contents of the tick can transmit disease. It is not uncommon for a welt and skin reaction to occur. A little hydrocortisone spray will help alleviate the irritation, but it may take a week or more for healing to take place. In some cases, the tick bite may permanently scar leaving a hairless area. This skin irritation is due to a reaction to tick saliva. Do not be worried about the tick head staying in; it rarely happens.

A flea -infested pet is like a living salt shaker of parasitic eggs. Everywhere the pet goes, the eggs fall into the environment. The eggs live in the carpet and on the furniture and hatch out in as little as 2 months or as long as several months. Make sure all pets in the house are treated monthly for fleas.
