The cold air has been creeping in but did you know that tick season is still going on? In fact they're actively trying to get one last blood meal before the winter so make sure you keep up with your flea and tick prevention! And as always make sure to give your monthly heartworm and interstinal parasite medication year round, intestinal parasites don't take the winter off.

If you've been watching the news lately you may have heard about an FDA warning regarding products such as Nexgard and Bravecto, flea and tick preventatives. These products are still safe and effective for use but click here if you would like to learn more. Feel free to call in if you have more questions. Your pet's health and safety are our top priority!

Over the past week we've gotten quite a few phone calls about dogs and a painful run in with bees! So here are a few things you can do if your pup gets stung.

Some of the most popular dog names in the US include: Bella, Max, Lucy, Charlie, Daisy, and Cooper. If you add a Snoopy we could almost have a Peanuts gang.

Essential oils have been seen more and more lately, and the use of them for aromatherapy has become more widespread. But whether you have a cat, dog, or bird there are some concerns about these products being around your pet. They should always be used away from pets and never on them. For more information.

Some of the most popular cat names include: Tiger, Puss, Smokey, Misty, Tigger, and Kitty. Is it funny that cat names don't often have human names like dogs tend to? Why do you think that is?

Did you know the West Chester Food Cupboard helps serve the local families in West Chester with not just healthy food but also household items they may not otherwise be able to afford? As a veterinary office we try to do our part by donating dog and cat food each month to help feed their pets. Want to help too? Just drop off dry or canned dog or cat food at our office or donate to our West Chester Food Cupboard Jar and you're monetary donation will go directly to buying dog and cat food. Call or stop by for more information
The Food Cupboard sends their thanks to all of our clients who continually help out with their pet food donations.
