We have now had 3 heartworm positive dogs this summer and fall. This disease is such an easy disease to prevent with tasty, monthly preventatives. You can purchase your preventative at our hospital or online through our direct distrubutor pharmacy VETSOURCE. Did your pet get his/her heartworm preventative this month?

Our compliance on heartworm testing is far greater than that of pets on preventives. How can we bridge that gap? Unfortunately, pet owners don't realize the importance until this happens! #veterinary #heartworm #pethealth

Is your pet on heartworm prevention?

Heartworms are really this scary!! Protect your pets from these real monsters by keeping them on preventive every month or the 6 or 12 month injection for dogs. And have a Happy Halloween! P.S. Chocolate and xylitol are toxic to pets! Be safe this Halloween. Thanks to Adriano Vatta for sharing this photo by 1st yr vet student at LSU!

Hello wonderful people!
We celebrate National Veterinary Technician Week this week.
We often say our receptionists rule the day fielding calls and juggling appointments.
Our technicians are the heart and soul of a practice. They are Jacks of all trades. In one day they can manage routine appointments, anesthesia for our surgeries, perform dental exams and radiography, triage and provide emergency care and be wholly present and provide a comforting embrace as we say goodbye to a beloved patient.
We say THANK YOU to Katie, Miranda, Leanna and Ace for their expertise and dedication. We couldn't do it without them!
