SEE WHAT’S BEHIND HEALTHY PETS

At Our Annual Open House! When you’re hiking outdoors, do what you can to prevent pets from drinking from streams and stagnant bodies of water. We understand that with most dogs, it’s tough to keep them away from water. Do your best, and if they do drink something and you notice them acting strangely,

a dog wash, and fun for all. We’ll have several raffles of pet-related baskets and giveaways too. Plus, everyone who comes in for an appointment starting Monday, July 8 will receive two FREE raffle tickets to enter into the drawings of your choice at the Open House. We always have some great items, including a FREE spay or neuter! There will be a pool for the dogs to get in, and we’ll have shampoo available, so if you want to give Fido a real bath, you can! The kids might have fun playing in the water too. There is something for everyone! Come out and enjoy the fun on July 27 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.! We can’t wait to see you there. This time of year, we’re always thinking about ways to keep our pets cool and hydrated. With summer comes heat, and with the heat, there are a few extra precautions you can take to keep your pet healthy. For our bigger animals, that means making sure they have plenty of water and shade available throughout the day. On camping or backpacking trips with your furry friends, bring enough water for them. For larger dogs, that’s usually the equivalent of what a human would drink; for smaller dogs, it will be less, but it does vary. “OUR ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE IS ON SATURDAY, JULY 27, AND WE'D LOVE TO SEE YOU THERE!”

give us a call. As with any time of the year, keeping your pets up to date on their vaccines and treatments is important. We get to see many pets this time of year for their annual shaves, which is a great way to help them stay cool for the hot months. We can do a full shave now, and it leaves time for their fur to regrow for the fall. Besides keeping pets cool, a shave will help keep awns — those pesky stickers that grow on many kinds of grass — and other pests off their fur. Awns tend to be rampant in the summer, so keep an eye out after your pet runs around outside. Allergies also tend to come up in late spring and summer, so reach out to us if you think your pet may be experiencing them. Thanks for being part of the Surface Creek Veterinary Center family. It’s a joy to serve you! We love caring for your pets of all shapes and sizes, and we look forward to seeing you at the Open House on July 27! Dr. Susie and Dr. Jeff

Isn’t it funny what summertime means as a kid compared to what it means as an adult? Our kids are excited to be out of school, and we’re excited to not have after-school activities every day! They’re looking forward to sleeping in, and we’re looking forward to getting those extra hours of quiet time! Of course, we stay busy at the Hirsch household keeping up with the yard and our pets, so, even in the summer, there’s plenty to do. And while the kids may be excited to relax, we’re excited to serve you and your pets! When you love what you do, work feels a lot less like work. Something we’re especially excited about this month is our Annual Open House on Saturday, July 27, and we’d love to see you there! Come walk through the clinic and satisfy your curiosity about what is behind those doors! You can explore the rest of the hospital and see all the state-of-the-art medical equipment we have to keep your pet healthy. We’ll have food and drink,
