We’d like to introduce you to Bindi, a precious Maltese who has been through a lot in her 6 years of life. When you read her story, you might think that she would hate coming to the animal hospital, or that she would be depressed. But Bindi reminds us that the right attitude can bring gratitude.
With the holidays fast approaching, now is the time to think about looking for a pet sitter or a kennel if you will be leaving your pets over the holiday. Take time for meet and greet appointments to see how your cat or dog reacts to the person. Take your pet for a test run at the kennel for a few hours, half day or overnight to see how they do. Talk with your veterinarian to learn other ways to help with your fearful or anxious cat or dog during the holiday season.
- SSRI antidepressants
- Lilies (Lilium & Hemerocallis)
- Liquid potpourri
- Glow jewelry and glow sticks
- Household cleaners
The ASPCA sees an increase of certain toxins for cats during the holidays and winter months. Toxins can cause many symptoms including GI upset, salivation, seizures, or death. If your cat has gotten into any of the above toxins, contact the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (1-888-426-4435) and your veterinarian right away! It could be the difference between life and death.
