Browse our blog for articles with information on keeping your pet healthy, information on surgical procedures, what's new in veterinary technology, and other topics of interest to pet owners.

Remember - your pet has an upset stomach!  Food and water may need to be limited or withheld for 12-24 hours.  Then small amounts of water (ice cubes first) and small portions of bland diet can be fed.  Feed this until pet is "back to normal," then introduce regular food into diet over the course of 1-2 days.  If vomiting/diarrhea persist or your animal is acting depressed or lethargic, you should contact our office for an appointment.

Simple Bland Diet Recipe:  mix 1 part boiled hamburger, chicken, or turkey (pour off water/grease first) with 4 parts cooked white rice

We also offer prescription bland dry and wet foods here at the office for your convienence.
