Free Urinalysis Day!Apr 5 2019
To Our Valued Clients:
Thursday April 18, 2019 is free urinary analysis day! Due to the generosity of our reference lab, we are able to offer a free urinalysis for your pet. All you need to do is drop off a sample of your pet’s urine on April 18th between 9-5. A urinalysis is an important factor in determining your pet’s overall health.
If you are a client and your pet has been seen in the last year, RSVP to email@example.com by April 9th (so we have enough supplies on hand) if you would like to participate in this great opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you!
Urine collection instructions:
• Use a clean, dry collection cup of any kind
• If possible, urine sample should be collected when your pet first goes out in the morning (but we will take what we can get!)
• 3 tablespoons of urine is all we need!
• It is best to get the sample to PRAH within 1 hour of your pet providing the urine. If this is not possible, please refrigerate sample until you can drop off.

Please, Do Not Share Medications.....May 21 2018
Don’t share medications
Using the same medication on your cat that you use on your dog is NOT a good idea. It is important to use flea and tick preventives all year long; however, DVM 360 reports that the medicine you use on your dog can be harmful to your cat.
Cat flea and tick preventive medication protects your cat inside and outside because fleas and ticks carry bacteria and parasites that can cause serious and even fatal disease in domestic cats.
Many prescription and over-the-counter flea and tick medications labeled for dogs (usually ones you apply topically rather than have your dog swallow) contain a synthetic compound called permethrin. Permethrin is safe for dogs but toxic to cats.
If a product containing permethrin is mistakenly applied to or eaten by a cat, the cat can suffer seizures, a coma, and even death.
Flea and tick products that contain permethrin should always be labeled for use in dogs only. Some of these products also contain warnings to never use on a cat, but these warnings are sometimes small and hard to read.
Store your dog’s flea and tick products separately from products for your cat. The packaging is similar and the print is small so it can be easy to grab the wrong product by mistake.
Also, keep your dog away from your cat right after applying flea and tick medicine, as even close contact with permethrin can harm your cat.
Never split single doses of flea and tick medication between your dog and cat. In addition to toxicity concerns, dosing will be incorrect. Your pets won’t get the protection they need, which could cause a flea infestation or tick problem.
Your veterinarian will be able to give you direct guidance on the best products for your cat.
Flea and tick products purchased from your veterinarian or your veterinarian’s online pharmacy (instead of from a big box store), should come with a prescription label that clearly states whether the product is safe for cats.
Your veterinarian is always ready to help with any questions you may have about the health and welfare of your pets. Just ask.
