Written by // Tim Wheaton: Office & Media Manager Categories // My Pets Dr Blog, pet rescue

We're Halfway Through Our Adopt-A-Dog Month And We've Honored Two Adoptive Families Already

oliveadopted2In our previous post, we announced our recognition of Adopt-A-Dog month for October here at Alicia Pet Care Center. That includes a feature each week of an Adopted Dog family of the week. Randomly selected winners receive a $100 gift certificate for use at Alicia Pet Care Center. Your task: write us a little of the story behind how you helped your dog find their furever home with you and include a photo (or a few) of all of you together. We're enjoying getting to know you and your families a little better through this process. There are so many wonderful stories out there. So, tell us yours and who knows? You might just win a gift certificate in the process!

WHY GRAIN-FREE?

WHAT’S THE SAYING? YOU CAN’T TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS. WELL MY 11 YEAR OLD JACK RUSSELL TERRIER WOULD BEG TO DIFFER… HE HAS JUST RECENTLY STARTED JUMPING FOR JOY!

samboThis is the story of my dog Sambo and his switch to a grain-free diet.  It might also seem like a story about poop.  Because – let’s be honest – poop consistency is a big issue with a food change.  It’s the main reason why there was this 2 week journey to transition from the old to the new.  In the end, all of the food measuring and doody discourse was worth seeing some extra spring in my old man’s step!

FOURTH OF JULY SAFETY TIPS FOR YOUR PETS

4th dogWhile we are having a festive fourth- barbequing, a day at the beach, drinks and fireworks displays – our pets can be at serious risk of poisoning or running away from home.  July 5th is the busiest day of the year for animal shelters.  Firecrackers scare pets and they flee, resulting in getting lost or even killed.  Below are some tips to help keep your pets safe and sound so you can enjoy your holiday.

Should You Be Concerned About Fleas In Your Home?

pup scratchingIt’s June - and as they say – spring has sprung.  Flowers are popping up everywhere and so are fleas. 

Dr. Wheaton takes us back to his experience back in the '80s with fleas... "My first job was definitely the most challenging job of my entire life.  My father's pest control company also would flea dip the customer's dogs and cats which was my job.  So, take yourself back to the 80s and remember how ridiculously bad the flea situation was in Orange County.  Then put a 12 year old with a scared cat in the bath tub inside a sweltering pop-top van.  Add some potent, flea-killing poison dip and you get the worst job on Earth.  Oddly enough, that experience for three years did not dissuade me from working with animals for the rest of my life."  Luckily for you we have come a long way since the '80s in providing easy to use treatments to keep pesty fleas away from our pets.  You may be wondering what products are best for your pets or if they even need them at all.
