December Pet of the Month: Toby

We are excited to honor Toby as our December Pet of the Month! As you may know, our Dr. Luna provides the specialized veterinary care needed for small mammals. Toby is a very special guinea pig. The pet store that received Toby to offer for sale deemed him unsellable, due to a head tilt. Toby's adoptive "mom" didn't care about the minor imperfection, and brought him home to join her other guinea pig boys, Bart and Larry.

Toby is an affectionate guy who loves to be held. He dances on his hind legs at dinner time, sometimes getting so excited that he falls over! In the afternoon he likes to climb into his hay rack for a nice nap. Toby is a great example of what a joy it can be to adopt a rescued pet. We thank Toby's "mom" for allowing us to get to know this wonderful little guy and his adorable brothers.

National Mutt Day was Yesterday!

Yesterday was National Mutt Day! Our Mascot, Maya, is a mixed breed and we discovered that she is a mix of Chow Chow and Siberian Husky. Maya has once ranked 6th in the country for mixed breed obedience at her level. She has earned her Canine Good Citizen (CGC), holds titles as Companion Dog (CD) and Companion Dog Excellent (CDX) and was beginning to compete in the ring for her Utility Dog (UD) title when she tore a cruciate ligament in her knee and had to retire.

November Pet of the Month: Tinmook

Our Pet of the Month for November is Tinmook Conn-Lai. When Tinmook comes in for a visit, he serenades us with his beautiful singing voice, in typical Siberian Husky fashion!
Tinmook was once very overweight. In 2007, his pet parents entered him in a pet weight loss contest. During the course of the contest he lost over 12 lbs., and won 2nd prize! Tin lost weight the smart way - with proper diet and exercise, under the supervision of his doctors. He has continued to maintain a healthy weight into his senior years.
We are grateful that Tinmook and his pet parents are a part of the Brandt Veterinary Clinic family!

As the weather gets colder, pets may seek shelter in garages or sheds while they’re outside. It’s important to make sure that all dangerous chemicals are stored out of your pet’s reach. Antifreeze especially poses a dangerous threat to pets. If you suspect that your pet has consumed antifreeze, please contact us immediately.

October Pet of the Month: Posy Macdonald

Our Pet of the Month for October is Posy Macdonald. Posy is a petite and pretty dachshund whose job is to bring love and happiness to everyone she comes in contact with. Literally, it is her job. Posy is certified as a therapy dog by two separate organizations, Suncoast Humane Society and Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs. She helps children improve their reading skills by letting them read to her. She's a very patient and attentive listener. Posy and her mom also pay friendly visits to nursing home residents and hospice patients, bringing them the wonderful relaxation that can come from holding and stroking a pet. We are so fortunate to know such a sweet, loving little dog. Thanks to her wonderful mom for bringing her to us!

Pets & Fall Leaves

Fall is the season for making leaf piles, and your pet may love to join you in those autumn games, but before they do, make sure you’re aware of the dangers! Many pests may be lying in wait for your pet to arrive, so be sure that your pet is fully covered with their flea, tick, and heartworm preventative, just in case!

Top 10 Safety Tips for Pet Parents

Attention, animal lovers, it's almost the spookiest night of the year! The ASPCA recommends taking some common sense precautions this Halloween to keep you and your pet saying "trick or treat!" all the way to November 1.
1. No tricks, no treats: That bowl of candy is for trick-or-treaters, not for Scruffy and Fluffy. Chocolate in all forms—especially dark or baking chocolate—can be very dangerous for dogs and cats. Candies containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can also cause problems. If you do suspect your pet has ingested something toxic, please call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.
2. Popular Halloween plants such as pumpkins and decorative corn are considered to be relatively nontoxic, but they can produce stomach upset in pets who nibble on them.
3. Wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations should be kept out of reach of your pets. If chewed, your pet might suffer cuts or burns, or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock.
4. A carved pumpkin certainly is festive, but do exercise caution if you choose to add a candle. Pets can easily knock a lit pumpkin over and cause a fire. Curious kittens especially run the risk of getting burned or singed by candle flames.
5. Dress-up can be a big mess-up for some pets. Please don't put your dog or cat in a costume UNLESS you know he or she loves it (yup, a few pets are real hams!). For pets who prefer their “birthday suits,” however, wearing a costume may cause undue stress.
6. If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume isn't annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal's movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe, bark or meow. Also, be sure to try on costumes before the big night. If your pet seems distressed, allergic or shows abnormal behavior, consider letting him go au naturale or donning a festive bandana.
7. Take a closer look at your pet’s costume and make sure it does not have small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces that he could choke on. Also, ill-fitting outfits can get twisted on external objects or your pet, leading to injury.
8. All but the most social dogs and cats should be kept in a separate room away from the front door during peak trick-or-treating hours. Too many strangers can be scary and stressful for pets.
9. When opening the door for trick-or-treaters, take care that your cat or dog doesn't dart outside.
10. IDs, please! Always make sure your dog or cat has proper identification. If for any reason your pet escapes and becomes lost, a collar and tags and/or a microchip can be a lifesaver, increasing the chances that he or she will be returned to you.

Saturday is Responsible Dog Ownership Day

The American Kennel Club has named Saturday “Responsible Dog Ownership Day” to remind all pet owners to take great care of their beloved canine companion. Whether you’re scheduling your pet for a physical exam, getting them vaccinated, or having them groomed, be sure to do something extra special for them this Saturday. They are entrusted to your care for life, so it’s your job to give them what they deserve: responsible care.

Pet of the Month: Sebastion

Our Pet of the Month for September is Sebastion Carson. Sabby, as his mom and dad call him, is a very sweet, handsome and loving boy. During his sister Peanut's last days on earth, he took extra special care of her, giving her lots of kisses when she had to take her pills. He was recovering from a major surgery at the time, but was more concerned for Peanut than for himself. We are proud to honor Sebastion as our September pet of the month!

OraStrip Diagnostic Dental Infection Testing

The OraStrip diagnostic test provides objective confirmation of disease invisible below the gumline, and provides early detection in patients with healthy-looking mouths, when irreversible disease is preventable. We tested this service with Maya, our clinic pet, who has pearly white teeth. Using OraStrip diagnostic testing, it turns out that Maya had an abscess tooth that had been broken below the surface. The teeth were not infected but with the help of OraStrip, we were able to assist Maya in getting a healthier smile!

Homemade Dog Treat

Had chicken for dinner? Throw the leftovers in a large pot, cover with water, and let it simmer for an hour and a half.

Cool, then pick the meat off, discarding the bone but keeping the cartilage, meat, and broth. Left over cooked carrots and/or peas? Mash them up and mix them in!

Pour the chicken broth into your popsicle mold and freeze. This is a nice savory popcicle treat for your dog to lick out on the porch on a hot summer day!

Pumpkin: Pet of the Month for August.

Pumpkin is our Pet of the Month for August. Here is what Pumpkin has to say...."My name is Pumpkin {Orange Tabby} and I'm 10 years old. My mom and dad tell everyone what a gentleman I am. I am happy and affectionate and love to cuddle, snuggle and give 'cat kisses' to my mom and dad. I also love my cat treats and have some every day. When the house doorbell rings, I run and hide under the bed. I don't want anyone taking me away from my nice home. One of my passions is to play with my small stuffed cat. I carry it around with my teeth and like to hide it. Another one of my favorite toys is 'glitter balls' which I love to chase them around and hide them all over the house. When I'm hungry, I put a glitter ball in my food dish so my mom and dad will know. I pray I'll always stay real cool and keep the secret feline rule, to NEVER tell a human that the world is really ruled by CATS! I purr, therefore I am........"

Pets & Pool Safety

Have you ever seen your pet swim? Many dogs instinctively do the “doggie paddle” with their feet—hence the name—yet not all dogs know how to stay above water for long periods of time. For that reason, it’s important to supervise your pet at all times while swimming, just like you would do for your children.

Homemade Dog Friendly Treat

Combine 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1/4 cup shredded carrots or chopped apples. Chop 4 ounces cooked liver, and add it to the yogurt mixture. Spoon the yogurt treats into an ice cube tray, and freeze.

Mix a can of chicken or tuna with 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic and two containers of plain yogurt. Add some cooked vegetables, if desired. Stir the mixture together, and put it in some small paper cups.

Make some quick-and-easy frozen dog yummies. Mix a cube of beef or chicken bouillon with 1 cup of warm water. Add several pieces of finely chopped leftover beef or chicken, and freeze the yummies until they're solid.

Create a frosty doggy treat with a jar of chicken or beef baby food. Add the baby food with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of honey. Mix well, and spoon the mixture into small paper cups or ice cube trays. Double the recipe for large dogs.

Chop a cup of peanuts, and stir them into a mashed banana for a fruit and protein treat. Add 1/4 cup wheat germ and 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter. Mix well and freeze.

Pet of the Month: Frisco

"Frisco" is a 10 year old Labrador Retriever who always comes to Brandt Veterinary Clinic with a smile...and a happy bark! He knows exactly where the lean treats are and makes sure he gets at least a couple per visit! Even after surgery, he bounces out of the clinic like a 10 month old puppy! We are happy to honor Frisco as our July Pet of the Month!

Pets & Heatstroke

Many pets see a summer car ride as an adventure, but a hot car is no place for a pet. Even if you plan on bringing your pet as you run a quick errand, keep in mind that the interior temperature of a car can quickly surpass 100 degrees, even if the windows are cracked open and the outside temperature is only in the low 70s. Because pets don’t have the means of cooling themselves down the way we do, such high temperatures can cause heatstroke, brain damage, or even death. So keep your pet safe this summer, and never them alone in a car.

Pet Beach Safety

When you and your dog head out for a day at the beach, be sure to take all the necessary precautions to ensure their safety. First, check with local ordinances to ensure that your dog is allowed to visit the beach of your choice, and whether they need to be leashed the whole time. Second, be sure to pack fresh water, food, a blanket, and a sun-shelter that your pet can use. Lastly, don’t forget to bring some toys, like a Frisbee or tennis ball, so the two of you can have some fun together!

June is National Pet Preparedness Month

As June’s National Pet Preparedness Month nears, ensure pets are included in emergency evacuation plans and safety procedures. With owners caring for pets as true family members, the majority of owners stated they would take their pets with them in the event of a disaster including 76 percent of dog owners and 67 percent of cat owners, according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA) 2011 / 2012 National Pet Owners Survey. The following are helpful preparation tips and products manufactured by APPA members to keep in mind for the whole family should disaster strike.

Stock Food & Water
Ensure pets have a vast supply of food and water to last for at least three days if needed. Non-perishable canned or freeze-dried foods are great to pack up and easy for storing at room temperature. Visit for a selection of easy-to-store freeze-dried foods by Stewart®.

Provide Fido with Float Gear
In the case of a hurricane or flood, ensure pets remain safe, afloat and visible at all times. Click Fido into a floatation vest and check out for dog life vests, coats and more.

Pack First Aid Essentials
Prepare for any situation with essential first aid items for pets including bandages, antiseptics, and other proper tools. Should a pet need minor wound treatment or stabilizing, be ready to go with a packed first aid kit. Visit www.PawFlex.comfor disposable, tough and fur-friendly bandages.

Ensure Pets are Identifiable
Should a pet get lost in a crowd or separated during the hustle and bustle of an evacuation, ALWAYS ensure pets are easily identifiable and able to be tracked down no matter where you end up. Double check pets are secure with identification tags and all emergency contact information is up-to-date including alternate contact information in case you are forced to evacuate your house. Visit for tags with GPS and scanning capabilities.

National Pet Preparedness Month, created by the American Humane Association and Red Star AnimalEmergency Services™, is designed to encourage pet owners to prepare for disasters including pet first aid kits and safety tips. Visit more information.

June Pet of the Month: Kirby

Kirby Bowden is our Pet of the Month for June. Kirby is an eight year old tri-colored Basset Hound. He was born in Iowa, and he has a big brother, also a Basset Hound, by the name of Barkley. One might describe Kirby as a momma's boy. He's tenderhearted and a little cuddle-bug, but also a bit of a bull in a china shop. Kirby's "special skill" is acting malnourished. He's never met a treat he didn't like. Recently, Kirby became paralyzed in his hind legs. He is on the road to making a full recovery with the help of his friends at Brandt Veterinary Clinic. Kirby continues to inspire us, and gives hope to those who are going through similar hardships to never give up.

Mobilize the Earth for Earth Day 2012

The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life to speak out against the deterioration of the environment and demand change. As a result, the Environmental Protection Agency was created, the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts were passed,and the modern environmental movement was born.

Today, more than 1 billion people in 192 countries participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. This year, in the face of global inaction on pressing environmental problems, we must harness that power.

Earth Day Network is calling upon individuals, organizations, businesses and governments to Mobilize the Earth™ and demand that environmental issues become a top priority.
