We had a successful “Help Henry Feed Homeless Pets” pet food drive!  We raised over 1000 pounds of pet food for local shelters.  Congratulations to our Christmas contest winners!

 

January is almost over and that means Valentine's Day is almost here!

Valentine’s Day means chocolate!  Lots of chocolate!  PLEASE REMEMBER CHOCOLATE IS TOXIC TO PETS!  A bag of chocolate means lots of fat and sugar which can cause pancreatitis in pets.  In the case of pancreatitis, it is the high fat that causes the disease.  Chocolate is toxic because of the theobromine content.  Your pets can experience the following symptoms if they eat chocolate:

Vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, tremors, seizures, racing heart rhythm progressing to abnormal rhythm, and possibly death in severe cases.

If your pet eats chocolate, please call us immediately. After hours please call the Animal ER of Northwest Houston at 281-304-0039.

February is also National Pet Dental Month.  We have special pricing on dentals during the month of February.  Please remember that 78% of pets have periodontal disease by age three.  This is a silent disease in the beginning, but it eventually leads to a very painful problem for your pet.  Left untreated, periodontal disease can cause chronic pain, infected gums, missing teeth, and bone loss. Also oral bacteria can cause infections in the heart, liver, kidneys, and lymph nodes.   Good dental cleaning habits such as brushing, yearly cleaning, and antibacterial rinses and chews have been scientifically shown to extend a pet’s life by an average of THREE years.  Call us today to schedule your pet’s dental!
