Thursday News

This week I want to share a great resource for dog owners that have social dogs. Trips to dog parks, daycare, friends’ homes, campgrounds, and similar places can put dogs and people at risk for contracting a wide variety of parasites or other illnesses. The AVMA has put out an informational handout detailing many of the risks and how to protect your dog. It’s well worth the read!

This is a link to the AVMA page that introduces the guidelines.

You can download a PDF of the whole set of recommendations here.

Have a good weekend! Be safe!
