Many of us have been lucky enough to share a special bond with one or more pets. Each one has something special and unique about them. So we asked - "Why do you love your pet?" in our first ever "Why Do You Love Your Pet" original artwork contest.

We were very impressed with all the talented artists who submitted artwork and what makes their pet special.  We wanted to share our finalists and their inspirations.

With the legalization of cannabis in parts of the United States, we have seen an increase in marijuana poisoning in our patients. Recreational and medical cannabis is available in a wide range of products such as smokables, oils, and edibles, which can increase the chance of pet exposure. Many people may not realize that prescription medical cannabis products contain not only the CBD (cannabidiol) but a high level of THC which is harmful to pets.
