It is officially tick season. Be sure you get your pets on the appropriate flea & tick products. We carry safe, effective options, for both cats (and kittens) and dogs (and puppies). Ask us for details.
Remember to keep your dogs on Heartworm prevention year-round. Both the American Veterinary Medical Association & American Heartworm Society recommend year-round heart worm prevention for the protection of your pets.
Dr. Taylor’s recommendation for year-round heart worm prevention is Sentinel. A flavored, chewable tablet that you give once a month. Sentinel is a broad spectrum dewormer that also treats Whipworm, Hookworm & Roundworm. With an added flea component that sterilizes adult fleas, Sentinel helps prevent that first introduction of fleas from becoming a full infestations. Sentinel offers a mail in rebate on both 6 month & 1 2 month purchases. Ask us for more details.
Other options that we carry in the clinic are, Heartgard, which is also a flavored, chewable tablet, or Revolution, which is a topical application.
Support your local businesses – shop local includes your veterinarian 🙂
Dr. Taylor stays up-to-date on the safest, most effective options available at a cost comparable to other sources like Chewy, 1800PetMeds, PetCo, Etc.

The Miracle of Life
“Come quick, come quick”, their mother said, “The time is getting near”; She feels that when the kittens come the children should be here.
She told them that a big orange Tom took “Kitty” as his wife “It’s wonderful, a gift from God, the miracle of life”
At half a year young “Kitty” feels too painful and too scared to appreciate six miracles, blind-eyed and yellow haired.
But she knows these lives depend on her and nature tells her how and as she cleans them, children ask “Mom, can we go now?”
But now and then, for six more weeks the children visit her to play with six new magic toys, made of life and fur.
The six weeks pass, the newness gone and new homes yet unfound, Mom bundles up six miracles and takes them to the pound,
Where lovingly, with gentle hands and no tears left to cry, the shelter workers kiss them once and take them off to die.
And “Momma Kitty”, now she’s called, mourns her loss and then, she’s put outside, and of course, she’s pregnant once again.
Dad tells “Kitty” STOP THIS NOW or you wont live here long!, but deep inside of Momma Cat, this time something’s wrong.
Too young, too small, too often bred now nature’s gone awry, Momma Kitty feels it too and she crawls off to die.
She too is freed from this cruel world, and from her time of strife. How harsh the truth, how high the price, this “Miracle of Life”?
“PLEASE SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PETS!”
