Special Announcement/Spring Newsletter, March 1st, 2019
Hello everybody! Waggin’ Wheelz Veterinary Services has some important announcements to kick off Spring 2019!
In addition to our full body digital x-ray unit, we are very excited to now offer digital dental x-ray! As many of you know, February was National Pet Dental Health month and Waggin’ Wheelz Veterinary Services was offering promotions for both feline and canine dentals. We are having so much fun with our new dental x-ray machine, we are going to extend these promotions into the month of March! Waggin’ Wheelz will continue offering complimentary dental exams and bags of dental kibble! (This only applies to existing clients and is limited to one bag per patient)
Waggin’ Wheelz will be hitting the road on Saturday, March 30th! We will be making trips to both Kelvington and Wadena that day for spring vaccination clinics. We will be offering vaccines, deworming and flea & tick prevention services. Let your friends and family know we are coming to their neck of the woods! Remember, with Waggin’ Wheelz Refurral Rewards you get credits to your account for each referral you make!
In the endless battle against overpopulation we have made a small dent. Over 50 cats have been spayed or neutered through our F.A.R.M. Cats program and in partnership with the Town of Wadena through their innovative TNR (Trap, neuter, release) policy. We will be having our next spring F.A.R.M. Cat day on Wednesday, April 10th. Please contact the clinic to register as soon as possible.
Have an unruly puppy dog at home? We can help! Waggin’ Wheelz has called on Ashley Hoedel Renwick of Hydeout Dog Training in Regina. Ashley will be coming to Wynyard each Monday for a 6 week course starting on May 13th. We are very excited to have her. Classes are $85 plus tax and you can call the clinic to register!
Love puppies and kittens? Enjoy helping people? Can you organize, multitask and communicate all while showing off some handy tech skills? Have we got the gig for you! Kaitlyn and her partner are expecting their first baby in August so we will be looking to fill a temporary receptionist position starting in July. For more details on the job, please contact us at the clinic.
Last but definitely not least, Dr. Kaylee is expecting her second child in May! We are currently looking for a temporary replacement for the month of June while Dr. Kaylee will be away enjoying time with her family and their newest addition! For anyone who has pets due for services in the months of May & June we will be making a special effort to contact you early to ensure that your pet gets the care they need in the reliable fashion you have grown accustomed to!
FAQ: A little Q & A
Q: Are you still open late once a week?
A: Some of our clients and the general public were suggesting the need for later appointments. For three months we experimented with late night Thursdays, keeping the clinic open until 7pm. Due to lack of demand for later appointments, we have gone back to our regular clinic hours of 8:30 am - 5:30 pm (Closed over lunch)
Q: When should I start thinking about tick prevention?
A: Now! We should start administering preventative to our pets as early as April. The weather is always changing and we are finding that ticks are emerging earlier and earlier all the time
Q: What is heartworm and does my pet need to be protected?
A: Heartworm is a parasite that is transmitted to dogs and cats via the bit of an infected mosquito. It migrates via the bloodstream to the heart where it matures and can cause heart disease and even heart failure. Currently, we do not have a heartworm problem in Saskatchewan, but it exists in all the other provinces and some areas in the States. If you are going to be travelling outside the province during mosquito season, prevention is definitely recommended. Preventatives come in the form of a topical liquid or an oral chew and the protection generally lasts for 4 weeks
