Potentially Toxic Algae Found in Etobicoke Waterfront

By Uncategorized No Comments

Toronto Public Health (TPH) has issued a warning about the presence of a potentially toxic algae along the waterfront in Etobicoke.
The Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks has confirmed the presence of blue-green algae blooms at the mouth of Mimico Creek and Humber Bay Park East.

Blooms often form a large mass or scum on the surface of the water. It should be avoided because it can make you sick — some species of the algae can potentially produce toxins which are harmful to humans and animals.

Drinking or coming into contact with water that has sufficient amounts of the algae in it can cause headaches, fever, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting, skin rashes and mucous membrane irritation.

Please take precautions with you and your pet when visiting Toronto’s waterfront. If you or your pet have come into contact with the algae and are having any symptoms, please contact your health care provider.

New Pets and Ticks Website for Relevant Information.

By Uncategorized No Comments

In 2016, Dr. Scott Weese of the Ontario Veterinary College launched the Pet Tick Tracker to help monitor changes in tick populations. Through this online tool, pet owners could submit reports of tick findings – and the response was overwhelming! He’s now teamed up with Dr. Katie Clow to create Pets and Ticks – a comprehensive website that brings the Pet Tick Tracker together with up-to-date, evidence-based information on ticks in Canada.

A Kissable Mouth for Valentine’s Day!

By Homepage No Comments

February is Dental Health Month and we consider it a perfect time to bring awareness to the importance of your pets’ oral health.

We invite you to take advantage of a promotion running through the month of February.  Let’s work together to give your pet the gift of a kissable mouth for Valentine’s Day.  We would like to offer all dental cleanings and polishes scheduled during the month of February at  a  cost of $549.00+HST, a 10% savings.

It is important to recognize the signs of dental disease before they become a major concern and start to affect other organs such as the heart and kidneys. Bad breath, bleeding or inflamed gums, pawing at the mouth and loss of appetite may be signs of periodontal disease. When left untreated, it not only can lead to infection of the mouth, but can pose a risk for bacteria to be introduced to other parts of the body. The American Animal Hospital Association recommends an annual dental prophylaxis to remove the dental plaque and tartar that build up on your pet’s teeth throughout the year-just like with us!

Please contact the clinic to give your pet a kissable mouth.
