It’s been a good 6 to 8 weeks of social distancing and being ordered to stay at home as much as possible. You know who’s not complaining about that so far, your dog, cat, or other family pet. They’re getting extra love, walks, and probably an increase of treats throughout the day. Talk about a perfect life.
The most common disease we diagnose at Intermountain Pet Hospital is dental disease, but now we're going to talk about the second most common condition that we see in our hospital: Itchy pets.
Over the past few months, the coronavirus, or Covid-19, has been blasted all over the news, almost as much as the upcoming 2020 presidential elections. At first it was mainly over in Asia and Europe, but now that confirmed cases and related deaths have started to appear closer to home, we are starting to get the question, can my pet get, or be a carrier of the coronavirus?
Below Dr. Hunt talks about what Covid-19 is, how it spreads, and how your pet does or does not play a role in the spread of the virus.
We have some exciting news! Starting Monday, March 9th, 2020, Intermountain Pet Hospital will be the first veterinary hospital in the Treasure Valley to offer telemedicine for pets.
Intermountain Pet Hospital's mission is happy, healthy pets. We have now started to expand on that platform by creating a new day camp program call LEAP, or Life Enrichment Activity Program. This new philosophy incorporates the idea that dogs need enrichment to ensure they're both mentally and physically healthy and happy.
Our veterinarians are frequently asked during regular visits about if we can do anesthesia-free dental cleanings. Dr. Bingham state that he alone gets that question weekly. It's a question that loving pet owners think about a lot. The answer is: while some clinics do, we do not. We're going to go over the reasons why.
We are proud to share some exciting news about our pet pharmacy. It is our priority that patients live long, happy, and healthy lives. It is also important that our clients are happy and healthy.
We've all seen a commercial, TV show, or Hallmark movie where an adorable puppy or kitten crawl out of a box with a cute little ribbon tied around its neck. Every one coos at those loving, innocent eyes that can tug at even the most hardened guy's heart. Now you want to bring that same experience to your family with an adorable new addition to the family. Be it a bird, lizard, cat, or the ever-popular canine.
