Providing Veterinary Care for Cats and Dogs in the Upper Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont
Winter has arrived and along with it new hazards to our four legged friends. Cold temperatures can cause frost-bite and salt treatments can be harmful to paws. Using “pet safe” ice treatment is a safe alternative. Use caution when temperatures drop below freezing and avoid long times outside. After outside wipe your pet’s paws to remove any salt or snow accumulation. With the holiday season coming soon, be careful with chocolates, table scrapes, ornaments and toxic plants. Poinsettias, mistletoe and holly can be harmful to cats and dogs if eaten. Cats love to play with strings and many decorations can be tempting but can lead to intestinal obstruction if swallowed. Rich human foods are known to upset stomachs and can lead to vomiting and/or diarrhea. Keep pets away from anti-freeze, rat/mouse bait and other house hold chemicals. Also, we recommend to continue your flea, tick and heartworm preventatives year round.
Schedule your pet’s annual exam to discuss preventatives and complete your dog’s annual blood screening for heartworm and common tick transmitted diseases.

Our building is open every Saturday and we offer doctor appointments two Saturdays per month.
