What’s going on at Inverness Animal Hospital?

For the months of April, May, and June, we have been focusing on educating our clients about fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, as well as the health concerns they can cause in our pets. Part of this focus has been on the importance of vaccinating your dog for Lyme disease every year, especially if you plan on travelling up north. The prevalence of Lyme disease is increasing all over the country, and so the need to vaccinate against it is higher than ever before.

Luckily, in addition to the vaccine, we have several products that also kill the ticks that get on your dog! One of these
is Nexgard, a beef-flavored, once-a-month chewable tablet that helps treat and prevent fleas and ticks on dogs. In addition to the American Dog Tick and the Lone Star Tick, Nexgard has recently been approved to work against the Black-legged Deer Tick. This particular tick is the one most associated with the transmission of Lyme disease!

Bonus! We have some pretty amazing deals going on with Nexgard, as well as some of our other wonderful products! Click here to visit our website and see all of our deals for yourself!

Snapshot of Summertime

We’ve had an exciting summer so far! In May we welcomed back Andrew for the summer! While on vacation from school, he’ll be helping us out around the office! Welcome back Andrew, we’re glad to have you back!

In May, Karen and Dr. Aultman went on vacation to California to visit their family there! They had a great trip, but we sure missed them when they were gone! To show them just how much we missed them, we filled our Facebook page with several funny pictures, including one of us getting ready to swim to Alcatraz to meet them! To see the rest of our pictures, be sure to visit us on Facebook and like our page!

While there’s a lot of fun to be had in the summertime, there are also some
precautions that need to be taken for your pet’s safety. When taking your pets with you anywhere, it is imperative to remember to never leave them inside of a hot car. On an 85°F day, temperatures can reach up to 105°F after only ten minutes in the car, 120°F after only 30 minutes, and over 130°F in under an hour. Your pets are not only covered in fur, but they are also only capable of sweating through their paws. If it’s too hot for a human, imagine how hot it must be for your pets. A body temperature of 104°F is all it takes for a pet to have a heat stroke. Even with the windows cracked, it is never safe for a pet to be inside of a hot car.
