Smart Pet Safety Tips for Halloween

iStock_000048504324_MediumIf you’re like most of us, the past few weeks have been spent stocking up on Halloween candy, snacks, costumes, and decorations… trying desperately to avoid consuming all of those mini chocolate bars before the night of trick-or-treating arrives.

Because Halloween is such a family-oriented holiday, we often look for ways to include the family pet – Rover in particular – in the fun. From pet parades to costume parties, our pets love to celebrate this spooky season with us.

While this inclusion can be exciting for our pups, Halloween also presents one of the biggest risks of pet poisoning than any other time of year.

Our pinnacle goal has been and will remain: to provide you and your pet with the absolute best veterinary medicine possible; and we are delighted to be able to better serve you in our new location.

As you may have guessed, Hanford Veterinary Hospital taken over the old Adventure Park acreage on Glendale. The four-and-a-half acres allows us to create a  premiere, all-in-one companion pet center. The new location is designed to provide a range of services from veterinary medicine to our highly anticipated, pet boarding services and member-only doggy playground, Adventure Bark (tentatively opening in 2015) – where your pup can play to his or her heart’s content or be challenged on various obstacles on our agility course.

We are also thrilled to welcome a new addition into our array of specialized services with our high-tech digital dental X-ray. As a health-savvy pet parent, you probably know just how important dental health is to the overall health and life expectancy of our fur-kids. With this in mind, your Hanford team has been diligent in acquiring dental technology that better equips us to provide a service offered no where else locally. Continue…
