Puppy & Kitten Wellness Plans

Let Cornell help you budget your primary care costs for your new puppy or kitten.  We realize that the first year with a new kitten or puppy can be expensive, providing them with all the appropriate vaccinations followed by a spay or neuter. To make this easier for you, we have rolled our vaccinations and the accompanying spay/neuter discount program into one simple Wellness Program.

Dr. Terra Wakeford chosen as Emerging Leader

Our very own Dr. Terra Wakeford was recently chosen as one of only two veterinarians from Ontario to participate in the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) Emerging Leaders Program.  The Program, sponsored by Virox Animal Health, is a highly interactive eight-hour workshop spread across two half-days. In addition to the eight-hour ELP session, participants are also invited to attend some of CVMA’s signature events including the CVMA Summit and the CVMA AGM and Awards Luncheon. The Program was created to help bring joy back into the workplace by teaching graduates and experienced professionals alike how to cope with a variety of challenges encountered in veterinary practice. It gives an opportunity for individuals to explore their approach to personal and professional accomplishment and their working relationship with colleagues.  This is an amazing opportunity for Dr. Terra, and a real feather in her cap. Congratulations Terra! 

 

Ticks and Your Pets - In and Around Guelph

Ticks will become active when temperatures reach 4°C, so early preventive measures for pets are important.  The hardest part about treating ticks and Lyme disease is that bites aren’t always visible, which makes regular check-ups with your veterinarian important. Here are some tips to help you identify and treat ticks and prevent Lyme disease:

PREVENTION

  • Preventive medicines, including a monthly chewable or topical skin solution, can keep ticks and fleas at bay.
  • Don’t feed deer. They can carry ticks that transmit Lyme disease.
  • Remove items from your yard that may act as a home for ticks such as debris, brush, weeds and leaves.
  • Stay on marked paths and keep pets leashed when walking through wooded areas.

How Hot is Your Car?

As the temperatures start to soar it becomes increasingly important to NOT leave your pet in your car, even for a short period of time. As you can see by the chart above, temperatures inside your vehicle are greatly increased as compared to the temperature outside. After just a few short minutes, temperatures inside a car can become extremely elevated. Your car becomes an oven.

At this time of year, it's best to leave your pooch at home if there is any chance you would need to leave them in the car.

To view a demonstration of how hot your car gets, take a look at this video created by Veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward who stays in a parked car on a summer day to see how dangerous it is to leave a pet inside a car. The car reaches 117 degrees within 30 minutes with all four windows opened 1 to 2 inches. CLICK HERE TO VIEW  VIDEO

NEW! Ontario Vet Medical Association Pet Insurance

The Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA), in partnership with Petline Insurance Company, is launching the first pet insurance program designed and backed by Ontario’s veterinarians.  The OVMA Pet Health Insurance Program is designed to be easy and accessible for pet owners, offering no-surprise, complete coverage, quick (often same day) claims processing, and an industry-first 24/7 hotline to confirm coverage. The program, which is available through OVMA member veterinarians, addresses the issues that have often plagued pet insurance in the past. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from each policy goes to support the Farley Foundation, a charity that helps low-income pet owners in Ontario by subsidizing the cost of veterinary care for their pets.

We're a Cat Healthy Clinic

Our clinic has created a cat-healthy environment that allows for stress-free visits with your feline friend, as laid out by the "Cat Healthy" Organization.  Cat Healthy is an initiative designed to help cats get improved preventive healthcare. Cat Healthy provides Canadian veterinary professionals, cat shelters, pet stores, breeders and cat owners with health recommendations, tips, tools and tactics to help cats lead longer and happier lives. The emphasis is on preventive healthcare. To lower long-term healthcare costs and promote healthier cats, we encourage cat owners to seek more frequent preventive care from veterinary professionals. We provide ways to improve the veterinary experience for cats and cat owners – this will encourage increased cat visits and the chances of identifying problems before they become serious.  To learn more about Cat Healthy CLICK HERE TO READ MORE...
