Hello Everyone! We hope fall finds you and your fur babies doing well. Here is our Fall Newsletter for 2019
Fall F.A.R.M (Feral Animal Reduction Movement) - Cats
We have scheduled our F.A.R.M Cat day for Thursday, October 24th/2019. Within 48 hours of posting it on our Facebook page, our day was full! We have 24-25 cats to spay & neuter that day.
Thank you to all the people that want to help keep the feral & farm cat population down in our areas. Another day will be scheduled in the spring.
Just a reminder to please be patient with us on that day, we will be very busy in the back & will return phone calls, messages & emails as quickly as we can.
Travelling Out of Province/Canada With Your Pets
Will you be travelling with your pets this upcoming winter season? When leaving Canada and entering into another country, your pet will usually require up to date vaccination records. It’s always a good idea to check the health of your pet before any long trip. Please book in to have your pet(s) checked before leaving our province or Canada. Also keep in mind that different areas have different health concerns or diseases that are more prevalent. Please discuss this with us prior to travel so we can make sure your pets are completely protected
Winter Weather & Animals
Dogs & cats left out in extreme cold temperatures, especially without food & shelter, are at risk of hypothermia, frostbite & death. If you have outside animals, please make a point of giving them somewhere warm to protect themselves from the freezing temperatures we have in this province. If you notice an animal suffering, try to get them somewhere safe.
Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas Tips For Your Pets
-While we enjoy a sweet treat now and then, this can be very dangerous for our pets. Keep ALL chocolate out of reach of your pets. The cocoa can cause severe vomiting, diarrhea & even death. It’s good to remind your children of this as well. Contact us immediately if you suspect your dog has ingested chocolate
Do Not Feed your pets these things during Thanksgiving & Christmas Season
-Turkey bones, turkey skin, drippings, gravy, fat trimmings or fatty foods
-Onion & garlic
-Raisins & grapes
Things Happening At The Clinic
As most of you know, Dr Kaylee, Dustin & Charlee welcomed a baby boy into their family May 2019. Carter is doing wonderful & growing like crazy.

As of September 3rd she is back full time Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:30pm. We are still closed over lunch 12pm-1pm.
Our receptionist Kaitlyn welcomed a boy boy into the world in August 2019. Daddy Curtis is loving being a dad & the puppers Shipley & Millie love having a baby brother around the house.
