Rabid bat found Sept 19 at Lake Park.  Are your dogs and cat up to date on their vaccination?

September is National Preparedness Month.  Create your emergency plan for your pets today.

Responsible pet parents know that pet health insurance is important for their four-legged friends year ‘round. After all, the love and happiness pets bring us isn’t on a schedule—it’s 24/7!

But not everyone has heard about pet insurance and the confidence it brings, knowing that when the unexpected happens, you’ll be ready to take action and give your pet the best of care. That’s why September is Pet Health Insurance month. It’s our time to bark, howl and meow about what we can all do to give something back to the furry friends who give us so much.

If your pets are already covered, we’d like to give you a furry high-five. Now, go out and spread the word! Don’t have coverage yet?Well, what are you waiting for?! Explore the Buy Pet Insurance section of our website(North American Pet Health Insurance Association) to learn more. With providers across the US and Canada, there is sure to be a company that’s just right for you and the ones you love.

The Rabies statistics for 2014 are in.  Denton county had 17 rabid skunks, and 1 rabid bat.  Collin county had 32 rabid skunks, and 4 rabid bats.  Just a reminder to keep your dogs and cat up to date on their rabies vaccine.  You never know when a stray skunk or bat may come into your yard.


We have an opening for a part time assistant.  This is often a high school or college student, that can work 4-6pm on weekdays, and 8-10am/4-6pm on weekends, for an average of 10-20 hours/week.  They must be 16 years or older, and pass a drug test.  If you know a young animal lover that wants to get a job at a veterinary hospital, this is their chance!
