Garden Ridge Animal Hospital welcomes you to our website

We just celebrated our 25 years Anniversary.  Yup, we opened in 1990. 

Fleas and Mosquitos, Oh my. After all this rain, the next danger will be from mosquitos (which carry heartworms and West Nile Fever) and fleas. We are seeing fleas on pets daily now, from clients that haven't seen fleas in years.  Please make sure your dogs and outside cats are on some flea and Heartworm prevention.  Talk to our staff to "wade through" the many options.  Highland Village has confirmed West Nile fever mosquitos in June.  While West Nile fever doesn't affect dogs and cats, it does human, birds, and horses.  Keep yourself and birds INDOORS when mosquitos are active, esp dawn & dusk. 

dog flu

Canine Influenza is confirmed in Texas as of May 13.  There was an outbreak in Chicago, with a new mild strain not previously seen, H3N2.  The confirmed case is in a dog in Houston that just moved from Chicago. There is an unconfirmed case near Austin. The current flu vaccine for dogs was developed for a different strain,and we don't know yet if it will provide protection.  Stay tuned,especially if you are traveling with your dogs this summer to Chicagoland. And be careful at dog parks, boarding facilities, and doggie day cares.  For more information,Canine influenza: Pet Owners' Guide

 

Snakes alive!  Snake season has fully kicked in.  The emergency clinic in Flower Mound continues to treat many cases per week.  Risk factors are living close to the country, and letting your dogs out at dusk or after dark.  Texas has 4 kinds of poisonous snakes, but we see mostly copperhead and water moccasin  bites in our area.  

 


What going on next door?  The car wash has been sold and demolished to build a senior care center.  We are not expanding, but look forward to having new neighbors.
