The ominous hissing, the mournful meows, the defensive scratching or biting, the upset bowels-feline stress is just plain unpleasant for cats and you. Many cats get stressed when it’s time for a veterinary visit. Thankfully, there are ways to help cats relax and enjoy the ride-yes, even in the car. Here’s what you can do.

Why is good grooming important?
In addition to regular veterinary care, a good diet, and physical exercise, grooming is also an important part of your pet’s good health. Here are some reasons why...
If boarding or traveling, be sure to have your Canine Influenza Virus Vaccine.
For dogs the summer brings travel, boarding, grooming, dog parks, and visiting friends and family. Just like people, more contact with others increases chances of exposure to the flu. Since statistics say that every unvaccinated dog exposed to CIV will contract the disease, and that 20% will contract serious pneumonia from the infection, and up to 8% may die from it, we recommend vaccinating all dogs.
The Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital is offering a Basic Obedience Class to help get your new addition to the family off to the right start. Our goal is to help you build a relationship with your dog, to train your dog to give you his attention when needed for training and safety, and to teach your dog the foundation behaviors which are necessary for all future training and learning.
FELINE HEALTH ALERT...FELINE HEALTH ALERT...FELINE HEALTH ALERT...
Local animal shelters have notified us that a number of kittens from the area have been diagnosed with Feline Panleukopenia. The vaccine more commonly known as Feline Distemper includes protection against this virus, so please be sure your cats have all been vaccinated, as Panleukopenia is a leading cause of death in kittens.
