Equally important, she is observant and diligent about the health and well-being of the pets she grooms. Cheers to Dawn and here’s hoping for 15 more!

Halloween; so much fun for the kids. But it can be an anxious time or even a dangerous one for pets. Here are five tips for keeping your pet safe and happy this Halloween:

  • Most people are aware of chocolate toxicity but did you know that a lot of sugar free candy, mints and gum contain xylitol which is highly toxic? Keep all Halloween candy out of reach of your four-legged counter surfers.
  • Keep your black cats close. Yes there is still a very real threat to black cats during this time of year.
  • If your pet is going to be out that night, or any night really, make sure they are visible with a reflective collar or leash, or even better a lighted collar.
  • Use a critical eye with your pet’s costume, not just for cuteness but can your pet see, hear, breath and move adequately?
  • Anxiety…for some pets this is just another night filled with weird sounds, ringing doorbells, strangers dressed…well strangely, and lots of people coming and going. It is not fun for these pets and can cause anxiety, fearful behavior, even bolting from the house. Take a little time well before Halloween night to plan for your pet’s safety and comfort. For anxious dogs, a long walk early on to wear them out can help. You can use whatever method you use to keep them comfortable during storms or the 4th of July be it a Thunder Shirt or medication or a pheromone collar. Consider whether your cat or dog needs to be contained to prevent a panic and bolt situation. Sometimes a quiet room or crate with a television or radio playing for background noise is the safest and most comfortable solution.

Manchester West Now Has Therapeutic Laser!

Therapeutic Laser

Our Class IV Therapeutic laser is a non-invasive procedure used to speed the healing process and treat all types of conditions from arthritic joints (hips/knees/elbows/spine) to wounds, hotspots and chronic ear problems. The procedure takes minutes, is pleasant for the pet and involves no injections or oral medications. We have already seen some exciting results such as improved mobility in pets with chronic hip or back pain. We are also using it on our post-surgical patients to speed healing at the incision which reduces the likelihood of the pet licking/chewing at the incision. Call our office for more information. We will be posting success stories on our Facebook page as well!

We've also posted new videos on our You Tube Channel about laser treatments. Here are the links:
