March brings spring, and new arrivals to Alameda Pet Hospital. We welcome the addition of our receptionist Amanda’s new baby boy. Congratulations to her and to her family!
Pets become more active in the spring, so this is a good time to make sure that their vaccinations are up-to-date. Please don’t skip any vaccinations without checking with us first. Vaccinations are safe and effective in the majority of animals, and skipping them may make your pet vulnerable to deadly diseases like parvo virus, distemper, and rabies.
A dog in southern California whose owners had not kept up with vaccinations was recently diagnosed with rabies after traveling in Arizona. Rabies is not curable, so the dog was euthanized. Rabies can be transmitted to humans, so people who had come in contact with the dog had to endure a series of preventative injections.
Please call us for an appointment this month if your pet is due for a vaccination.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
Tuesday, Thursday: 8:00 am – 8:00 pm
