We like to “treat” our pet with special treats…

The idea that it’s natural for dogs to chew on bones is a popular notion; however, it’s a dangerous practice and can be a serious threat to your pet’s health. Why are bones a bad treat for your furry friend?
Bones Dangerous to Dogs

  • Mouth or tongue injury.
  • Broken teeth.  This leads to expensive veterinary dentistry.
  • Bones can get caught or looped around your pet’s lower jaw.
  • Bones can also get caught in the esophagus or windpipe.
  • Constipation due to bone fragments.
  • Bones can get stuck in the intestines.

These are just a few of the possible tragedies that may come from our desire to “treat” our pets.

Remember that we are open late and on the weekends to help care for your pet:
Monday – Friday:  7:30 AM – 10 PM
Saturday:  8 AM – 8 PM
Sunday:  10 AM – 8 PM
