DID YOUR PURCHASE QUALIFY FOR A REBATE?
    
DO YOU WANT A REBATE NEXT PURCHASE?
  

Every year many major manufacturers offer cash incentives for stocking up. How do you get your rebate? We've included instructions on our Special Offers page. Some manufacturers use a downloadable coupon that you mail in but most companies prefer an online request. You will need a copy of your receipt from our hospital either way and online pharmacy purchases are not eligible.

What do you get?

Most of the time you get a VISA gift card for the amount of the rebate though some companies will send a paper check. Zoetis uses a points system through Zoetis Pet Care Rewards and you can cash in your points on your own schedule but you receive a gift card that can only be used at our hospital.

Check the list below:
(and let us know if you need a copy of your receipt.)

DID YOU KNOW...

             ...THAT WE HAVE MANDATORY SPAY/NEUTER IN LOS ANGELES?

Well, most of you probably knew but we still find that many newcomers to our city are completely surprised to find this out. So to recap:

  • You need a license to own a dog in Los Angeles (and pretty much anywhere else)

  • To get a license to own a dog in Los Angeles, the dog needs a valid rabies vaccination certificate and a certificate of sterilization.

Exceptions to mandatory neutering are:

 

  • Is a breed approved by and registered with a registry or association which, at a minimum, requires identification of the breed, date of birth, names of registered sire and dam, the name of breeder, and record-keeping relating to breeding, transfer of ownership and death, and does or will actively show or compete.
  • Has earned or is in the process of earning a special title (i.e. agility, herding).
  • Is used as or in training to be a guide, signal, or service dog.
  • Is a dog trained, or in training, for use in law enforcement, military or rescue activities.
  • Has a letter and documentation from a licensed veterinarian certifying that the animal should be temporarily or permanently deferred due to age or health.
  • Has a valid breeding permit issued to the owner pursuant to existing City ordinance.

A dog that meets one of these exemptions must have a special license (which costs five times as much as a regular license)

To make it easier for spay/neuter, residents of Los Angeles can get a $50 voucher towards spay/neuter at

LAAnimalServices.com


Continuing in that vein, Culver City not only has mandatory spay/neuter for dogs but they have mandatory microchipping as well, as do unincorporated areas of L.A. County (like Marina del Rey).

CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES

Our hospital offers Chiropractic services for pets once a month with Dr. Jenny Johnson. Shockwave therapy also available for drug-free long term arthritis pain relief.

Contact us for scheduling or for more information.

DOES YOUR DOG LIKE TELEVISION?

The University of Wisconsin wants to know about dogs that like to watch TV.

We've presented information in the past on DogTV (DogTV.com), a streaming service that airs programming made for dogs, particularly dogs home alone who need help with anxiety. There is programming for stimulation as well as for relaxation. The University of Wisconsin wants to know more.

Television works by updating an image repeatedly to create a moving picture. Prior to the advent of HDTV, the image update did not work for the canine eye and dogs could only see a blur on the screen, though they could certainly hear the action of the show. Now dogs can see the action as well as hear it.

The university wants to test canine television interest in a more scientific way. You can show your dog a couple of 1-2 minute videos and rate what is interesting to your pet. Consider helping science advance one dog and a time. For details, click the link below:
