It’s so important to make sure you are prepared to keep your dog cool this summer. All pets must be kept in cool, shady areas. It’s ideal to keep pets inside on hot, humid days. Here are some tips and tricks to help keep Fido cool!
Make sure there is always water and shade available for your furry friend!
Keep nice cold water out and bring pets inside when it’s too hot. Fill a kiddie pool with water on hot days for Fido to play in, or put a sprinkler on.
Go for walks on off hours, the sun is hottest from 12-2 pm. Try to go for walks in the early morning or late evening and watch for humidity. When the air is full of moisture, your dog may not be able to pant enough to cool himself off.
Watch for signs of overheating!
Make dog-friendly ice pops! Use pet-friendly foods like blueberries and freeze them in an ice mold. These ice cubes can be given on hot days, as treats to keep Fido cool. You can also use meat broths and veggies, whatever Fido prefers!
Never leave your dog in a vehicle, not even for a few minutes! Even when it isn’t that hot outside, the temperature will soar inside a closed vehicle. If you need to go places, leave him at home, or take him to places he can come with you.
We are so happy to announce that we have won the 2018 Reader’s Choice Award in Mississauga in the category of Best Veterinary Hospitals! This award is very special to us as the voting is done by the community and our clients.
We would like to thank every person who took the time to vote, or even took the time to share your experience with someone else.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
4. OPERATING HOURS
We continue to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
