Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo Winter Newsletter 2018

Winter Newsletter 2018

The doctors and staff at Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo would like to take this opportunity to wish all our clients and their families a happy and healthy holiday season.

Finding the Perfect Gift

Finding the perfect gift is the great obsession of every holiday shopper.  After scouring the malls and toy stores for something the recipient does not already have, the giver may think “A pet!” and picture their loved one embracing a fluffy puppy or kitten in the glow of the Christmas tree.  Such scenes are always heart-warming and there is no doubt that most people would love a puppy or kitten to cuddle near the fire on Christmas day.  But what about then next day?  What about when the kids go back to school and the puppy is left alone in a crate or backyard?

What of the kitten, who’s bow has come off and is having trouble using the litter box consistently?  What about the cost, for grooming, feeding, training, and veterinary care?  As pet lover’s, we at AVC understand the allure of a holiday pet and the joy it can to bring to a family for years to come.  With that in mind, here are a few things to consider before getting a pet as a gift.

  • Make sure the person wants the pet! Pets are a life-long commitment and can often interfere with jobs, school, vacations, and other lifestyle choices.
  • Consider getting the pet gear (bed, collar, leash, toys) and giving a “pet promise.”  After the holidays are over, take the recipient to a local shelter to pick out their pet.
  • Make sure the recipient has the financial resources to care for the pet.  Food, training, boarding, grooming, and veterinary care add up over time and you do not want to put someone in a position where they have a pet they cannot afford.
  • Shop the shelters first.  There are so many wonderful shelter dogs and cats available, and many shelters offer gift cards so you can give those as part of a “pet promise.”
  • Do research on whatever you are considering.  Do you have enough room for a large dog?  Is anyone in the family allergic to cats? Is your child old enough and responsible enough to care for a pet?  It is better to ask these questions before you get a pet than find out after you have bonded with a pet and have to rehome it.
  • Do not let getting a pet as a present be a “spur of the moment” decision.  A pet is a gift, not a present, and should be enjoyed throughout the year and not just at holidays.

If you have any questions about getting a pet this holiday, please feel free to contact AVC to speak to our knowledgeable staff.  If you get a pet, feel free to stop by so we can meet the newest member of your family!

Ringing in the New Year

It is natural for people to overindulge at this time of year and allow their pets to do the same.  Remember that pets have delicate digestive systems and changes to their diet could cause vomiting or diarrhea.  Turkey or ham scraps may seem like a nice treat for your dog, but you are better off throwing it away.  Turkey and prime rib bones are choking hazards and may cause internal bleeding.  Also, remember that alcohol is toxic to pets.  If possible, contain your pet in an area away from parties.  If your pet mingles with the guests, make sure they do not indulge in any untended plates or drinks.  If you have reason to believe your pet may have ingested something harmful, bring them to AVC immediately.

Possibly the most traumatic event for pets on New Year’s Eve is fireworks.  Fireworks can be so upsetting for some dogs that they jump through a window or over a six-foot fence out of sheer panic or in an attempt to escape the noise and booming vibration.  For this reason, the most important thing you can do to protect your pet (even indoor pets) is to make sure they are microchipped and have a collar with your contact information on it.  We strongly recommend your pet have both.  Other things you can do to help your pet survive the holiday include keeping them home, closing all the windows and doors, leaving a television or radio playing to drown out noise, keeping them in a small secure space, and staying home with your pet.  For dogs with an extreme fear of fireworks, all of the above, products like the Thundershirt, and even sedation may be required.

The doctors and staff at AVC are looking forward to an amazing 2019.  We wish all our friends, two-legged, four-legged, no-legged, and feathered, a safe and happy holiday season.

Public Health Alert—-Flea-borne Typhus from Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo 

Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo Hills

Public Health Alert—-Flea-borne Typhus

We all know that fleas are irritating to our pets, cause itchiness and skin allergies and are just generally undesirable and challenging to eliminate in the environment. But did you know that fleas also transmit serious diseases to humans, such as Typhus and Plague? 

We are writing to alert you to a recent, local increase in Typhus cases reported by Los Angeles Public Health documenting over 100 cases of people who contracted Flea-borne Typhus. Flea-borne typhus is a bacterial disease that infected fleas can spread to humans during a fleabite. Symptoms of Typhus include fever, chills, lethargy, rash and headache. Once diagnosed, the condition can be treated with appropriate antibiotic therapy. It is not spread directly from person to person. 

The health of your family, both human and furry-babies, is our number one concern at Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo. Our doctors are recommending the following actions to keep your household safe from flea-borne pathogens: 

Make sure all of your pets receive year round, effective flea medication. This includes strictly indoor pets, who are still at risk for flea exposure. 

Do not leave pet food out that will attract rodents and other wild animals. 

Keep trash in tightly sealed containers. 

Reduce debris and overgrown plants and bushes in your yard.

Address any issues that your property may have with respect to mice, rats, gophers or any stray animals. 

If you would like additional information on the recent Typhus outbreak please visit http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/typhus or ask one of our doctors. 

If your pet is not current on flea control please protect your family and contact our office today to schedule an appointment. AVC doctors can prescribe a flea medication that is safe and effective for your pet and will protect your human family from contracting flea-borne diseases as well.
