Pets in Cars

It's the first day of Summer! It’s fun to take your pet in the car when you’re running errands, but in the summer heat, the car can become a potential death trap. Inside temperatures can quickly climb to more than 120 degrees on even a mild sunny day. Never leave your pet unattended inside the car during the summer months. Be sure to bring your pet plenty of water to keep them cool as the season heats up!

Brandt Veterinary Clinic is so proud to honor Bingo as our June Pet of the Month! Bingo, a 13 year old mixed breed, was brought into the humane society at the age of 1. He was found shot on the side of the road. He was rehabilitated and became an assisted living dog. When Bingo lost the use of his legs at 5 years old, he was outfitted with wheels which is how he has gotten around for the last 8 years...and HE GETS AROUND! When his assisted living caretaker retired, Bingo retired with her to Florida and has been coming to Brandt Veterinary Clinic since 2007. We are happy to honor Bingo this month!

Cookouts and Pets

Cookouts and family reunions are great activities this time of year.  However, the food we often enjoy at these events can make pets sick and even cause Pancreatitis, which is a very serious disease.  We want to remind you to bring plenty of food and treats for your pets so they can join in the fun without risking a stomachache or other illness later.

We would like to share this tip about how to handle your pets during a storm. Fear of thunder and other loud noises may drive pets to seek shelter. Their attempts to seek immediate shelter may damage property and cause injury to themselves. Pets that react to loud noises can be trained not to panic through a process called progressive desensitization. We can review this process and recommend solutions that may help your pet weather through the storm!
