Well its that time again - Happy Halloween!!! What is scary to your pet? How about strange people dressed up in scary costumes ringing the doorbell, kocking and yelling "Trick or Treat"! Some pets can become very stressed at this time of year. Just be aware that the noise and strangers may frighten your pet and cause them to bolt out the door. If your pet is greeting people at the door with you, have them on a leash of some sort so that in the event they get SPOOKED, you will still have control.
With all the candy and chocolate lying around during Halloween, chances are even the most well-behaved pet will be tempted to sample the treats or devour the entire stash! Chocolate can be very toxic so be sure to put the candies up in a high place to avoid any kind of emergency. If you think your pet has ingested some form of chocolate, please call us immediately as this is an emergency and should not be left untreated.
We also want to let everyone know that we are holding a Bake Sale Event with all the proceeds going to the Cancer Society. The sale will be held at our clinic on Friday, October 28, 2011. All welcome!!!

Hi there...well..it seems like forever since I last checked in but we wanted to take a minute to wish you all a very 'Happy Thanksgiving' from our new family and our little 'pumpkin' Grace...and the dogs too of course!! I have been enjoying a wonderful summer which has been kind enough to not want to end!!
We hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends and give your furry friends a little extra 'holiday hug' from all of us at Winrose!
For those of you who have been asking, I'll be back at the hospital part-time as of early November...and I look forward to seeing you all then!!
