Big Heart, Big Problem: Understanding Feline Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

From vampurrs to dogosaurs, there are few things as irresistible as a pet dressed up for Halloween. Make sure your pet’s costume is as safe as it is spooky with these tips.

Find the right fit.

Make sure your pet’s costume fits properly and comfortably. One that is too tight could restrict your pet’s breathing or movement, while a too-loose ensemble could cause your pet to trip or become tangled. Keep it light—some costumes may be too heavy for your pet or cause him to overheat. In addition, your pet’s costume should never cover his eyes, ears, nose, or mouth.

Ticks are the vampire of the pet world. They latch onto your dog or cat, attach themselves and suck their blood until they’re engorged with your pet’s blood. Then they fall off and rest until they’ve digested their meal.

The Many Benefits of Lab Work for Pets

As veterinarians, we often wish we could just ask our patients to tell us where it hurts. Unfortunately, evaluating sick pets is much more complicated, which is why blood work is such a valuable diagnostic tool.

Routine blood testing can help determine causes of illness, verify organ health prior to anesthetized medical treatments, and aid in the general maintenance of healthy pets.
