Just a reminder. We are now getting notifications from the College of Veterinarians of BC about the hazard of peanut butter with xylitol.

Pet owners should be advised to read the ingredients label before feeding peanut butter to their pets.
Pet owners sometimes give their pets peanut butter to lick off a spoon or from a rubber toy. It is often a favourite treat. Unfortunately, some manufacturers are now sweetening peanut butter with xylitol which can cause severe reactions in pets.
Xylitol is used as a sweetener in many products, including gum, candy, baked goods, toothpaste and dental rinses. It can cause insulin release in most species, which can lead to liver failure. The increase in insulin leads to hypoglycemia (lowered sugar levels). Initial signs of toxicosis include vomiting, lethargy and loss of coordination. Signs can progress to recumbancy and seizures. Elevated liver enzymes and liver failure can be seen within a few days.

Please note that the clinic will be closed Monday August 3rd in honour of BC Day. If you have an emergency, please call our number: 250-926-0006 and you will be directed to an on call Veterinarian.
Have a safe and happy long weekend.

Its the long weekend and its going to be a hot one!!
Most of us like to be near water to cool off on hot days. Its best to keep your dogs at home in a cool spot with water on hot day....this we all know. However, if you are taking an adventure with your pets on this BC Day long weekend, its important to remember to keep our dogs safe around the water. Not all dogs are good swimmers and not all dogs like water.
