HIGHlands Veterinary Hospital has been busy with the spring weather settling into its new season. The HIGHlands team has stressed the necessity for guarding against fleas and ticks that are now out and about with the warmer weather. Both these parasites create considerable health problems for pets, which are very easy to prevent. And as you know, our team at HIGHlands prefer prevention which saves a lot of pets from suffering and anxiety.
Another thing to be aware of is making your pet wait in a hot car! Clicking on this link is a report from the RSPCA about how it only takes 6 minutes for a dog to die in a hot car! Leaving a window slightly open doesn’t help. Even if you think you’ll only be gone for a couple of minutes, that can be too long! Don’t put your pet through this – it is classed as cruelty to animals and fines can be hefty for offenders, let alone the heartache of losing your best furry friend.
Thanks for all your support, we value our clients and appreciate any feedback that you may have.
