Fire Season Has Begun.

As the surrounding hills become dry and crispy, the threat of brush fire emerges as it does annually in the Los Angeles area. Even if you are not in a brushy area, earthquakes can happen any where at any time.

You probably haven't thought much about evacuation but maybe you should take a few moments: brochure:

DID YOU KNOW ...that having too many fleas can kill your pet?

Most of us know what a nuisance fleas are especially when the weather is hot. Fleas love this and their life cycle speeds up to take advantage. We think of fleas as causing itchy skin and primarily that is what they do but it is easy to forget that fleas are tiny little vampires sucking away your pet's blood. Too many fleas are lethal and if the pet is not allergic to flea bites, he or she will not itch.

Many people do not think their pet has fleas because there is no itching and they miss a large flea burden draining the life from a small animal. We have already given one transfusion for flea anemia this summer. Ask us about flea control if you need help.


A Special Thank you to our Referring Clients

We are honored when our clients refer their friends and family to our hospital and as a token of thanks, we credit their account $25 for each new client they bring. This month we wish to thank:

Danielle and Lance Fujimoto
Ginger Herlofsky
Gilbert Lee
Mike O'Learyer

To obtain the $25 credit, the referred client cannot have the same address as the referring client. The referred client must have received medical services for their pet in order to generate a credit for the person who referred them (retail or pet food sales or services at vaccination clinic do not count toward referral credit).
