This past November, our very own Dr. Flavia Zorgniotti, from Phoenix Veterinary Hospital in Wayland, MA held a lecture discussing acupuncture for pets. We were very excited how well received the lecture was and even more excited about Wicked Local's coverage of the event.
February is Pet Dental Health Month so we wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of keeping up with the dental health of our furry family members. Luckily for us, we recently had a veterinary dental specialist join our Best Friends family. His name is Dr. Gary Goldstein and, not only is he our new Chief Medical Officer, he is a Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry and is certified in Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery.
January 22nd is National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day! In celebration of this feline holiday, the Dog Dish writers asked one of our staff kitties, Lulu Kitty, to sit down for an interview with us (between naps of course), and ask us some of the more pressing questions she has about life as the world’s most pampered house cat.
Best Friends Total Pet Care and it animal-loving clients across the country showed their concern for homeless dogs and cats this recent holiday season by donating more than $25,000 worth in cash and supplies to the company’s 14th annual Animal Angel Tree campaign.
Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude and sharing food and fun with our family and friends. Of course we would want to include our furry family members in the merriment! When it comes to enjoying this Thanksgiving with our pets though, we have to be very careful to not accidentally make them ill.
A huge thanks to everyone who entered our Best Friends #PetScares, Halloween Instagram Photo Contest! It was a big hit and we are thrilled with ALL of the entries. In fact, the judges had such a hard time narrowing down a top three that they decided to name five winners instead. The lucky five will receive a $50 gift certificate to use at any Best Friends Pet Care center or Veterinary Hospital.
Fall has arrived! There is a change in the air, the kiddos are back at school, and yes, there are likely already Christmas decorations in the stores! Changes in the season also mean that there are new dangers to be aware of to keep our furry family members safe. Here are a few things you need to know to be “in the know” pet parent.
Do your pets love Halloween? Show us your cat’s best fang face, your dog howling at the moon or even your critter’s creative costume! Use your imagination and you could win one of three great prizes!
