Make 2018 great for both you and your pet! We all may be making resolutions for ourselves, but there are lots of ways to include your pets in this feel good tradition! Here are 5 "Petolutions" we think you should choose.
This summer has been a little bit of a bummer for the dogs of Central Florida thanks to Canine Influenza. We have been seeing lots of pets coming in for their vaccines! You can bet your team is also keeping up with the most updated news on where this disease is going!
For those of you who own cats, you know that the cats actually own you. They believe they are royalty (we like to call it the Cleopatra complex). So they may have you thinking they require the most exquisite and expensive toys available in the pet store to keep them happy. Well we're here to tell you that isn't true! One human's trash is a kitty's treasure...
If you have a senior pet with arthritis or have joint pain yourself, you know about many options in managing it, including things like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Although we have many supplements that we recommend before starting your pet on NSAIDs, oftentimes they need something stronger to keep their pain in check. But now, we have a new option - Galliprant! Galliprant is a brand new class of medication that has none (yep, that's right), NONE of the potentially harmful side effects of NSAIDs! It's the first in it's class of piprant drugs that directly targets pain at the receptor that specifically relates to osteoarthritis. It is different from our classic non-steroidal medications like Carprofen, in that it doesn't affect any other part of your pet and does not have to be processed through the kidneys or liver. It's a tablet given once a day, and is a fantastic long term management option for pets with arthritis.
So you heard it here first - this brand new, super safe option for osteoarthritis management is on our shelves and any dog can try it! If you are managing your pet's pain from arthritis, and want to give Galliprant a try, just call our office to schedule a consultation. We are so excited to be able to offer this to you and your pets!
