April Showers and May Flowers!!

We all look forward to this time of year when nature renews herself!!

But with all that also comes the onset of the Flea & Tick Season! There are many great new products to protect your pet! Go to our Fleas, Ticks, Mites & More! page to learn more and get a HEAD START on the season by protecting your pet and help keep them out of your house!


One of the most overlooked, expensive to treat, deadly and yet easy to prevent problems with a pet is the onset of Heart Worms! Once infected, the heart and lungs can be damaged quickly.

Usually infected by those pesky mosquitos (YES, they can bite through fur), this disease can be prevented easily!! In some cases (Ask the doctor), the treatment to prevent heartworms will also help prevent flea and tick infestation solving 2 problems with one treatment! And, yes, cats can get them as well!

During the month of April, we will offer a FREE HEARTWORM TEST with a Pro-Heart Injection (protectsyour dog for 6 months)! Learn more at

Make an appointment to bring in your pet for a simple test and start preventive measures NOW!

April 20th - 26th is NATIONAL PET ID WEEK!
Did you know of all the lost pets only about 2% of cats and 15% of dogs are ever reunited with their human families. The best way to increase your chances of being reunited with your pet is to make sure that he or she always has proper identification. You can do that with the usual tag on the collar, tattooing, or microchipping. We can help!
See our article on Microchipping Your Pet and give us a call!

Rabies is still an on-going problem in our area and the best way to prevent rabies in your pet is to vaccinate!
Our Rabies & Your Pet page will explain more about this dreaded disease!
Make plans now to bring your pet to one of the Rabies clinics held in May. The schedule is ON-LINE.

REMEMBER - the Holcomb Hilton fills up FAST!!

Pamper your pets in our excellent boarding facilities. Your pet's
