Spring will be here soon and with the warmer weather we will be outside more with our furry friends. Fleas and ticks will also be out enjoying that warmth. If you stopped your pets' flea protection over the winter months, now is the time to start back to it. It takes time to get worked back into your pet's system so you don't want to wait til fleas and ticks are out in abundance. Now is also the time to schedule your dog's spring haircut. If you schedule your appointment 4-8 weeks ahead we will gladly call 2 days before to remind you, if you request it. We have a new cat exercise wheel in the kitty play area. If you are boarding over spring break, schedule a time for your kitty to try it out. We would love to post a video on our facebook page!
Here we are in the middle of winter and I know the last thing on your mind is dog grooming. Yet no matter the weather, we humans still take care of our own hair. Your furry best friend's coat is no different. At the very least they should have their nails trimmed, hair removed from pads of feet to prevent painful ice/snow balls from accumulating, and a little trim under their tail to prevent anything else from accumulating there. Keeping their coat clean and mat free helps your beloved pet feel good and aids in keeping them warm when outside. A little pampering helps anyone, two or four legged, to get through the winter doldrums.
My name is Mary. Since the age of five when my father let me pick out my first puppy at the humane society I have been an animal lover. I started working at ABK in 1980 as a part time summer job. I loved it so much I am still here!
