Dear valued client,
At Safe Haven Veterinary Hospital one of our many
goals is to provide the best care for your furry family members. As
one of our many services, we provide boarding when clients such as
yourself need to leave your pet here in town when the need arises. As
you can imagine, we take our role as caregivers seriously and we take
all necessary measures to ensure the safety and welfare of your pet
during their stay. As part of our commitment to provide the best
possible care to our boarders and patients we are revising our
boarding policy here at Safe Haven Veterinary Hospital. As of June 1,
2015 we will be requiring patients that board with us to have the
following current vaccines (except in cases of special need):

Leukemia In an effort to assist you during this transition period, we
are offering $15.00 off your pet's next stay with us when you update
their vaccines. To qualify for this offer, vaccines must be initiated
by May 31, 2015, and boarding completed by August 31, 2015. We would
like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
Tired of seeing pesky ticks on your pup? Well we have good news for you! We now carry NexGard, the all new oral once monthly flea and tick preventative. Nexgard is manufactured by the same company that makes Frontline. We will be discontinuing several sizes of Comfortis since NexGard is only a few dollars more per month for flea and tick control. We will also be saying goodbye to canine Frontline Plus in favor of that same company's newest generation topical product called Tritak. Get these products from a veterinarian and they carry a guarantee that pet stores and on-line retailers can't provide to you. Read more at www.nexgardfordogs.com and www.frontlinetritak.com.

Bacteria from tooth decay and gum disease entering your pet’s bloodstream can result in infections of the kidney, liver, and other parts of the body. It is estimated that 85%-90% of all dogs and cats over the age of three years old suffer from some degree of tooth decay and gum disease. A professionally performed prophylactic dental aids in the prevention of these problems. To ensure a truly proper and dependable cleaning, your pet’s dental procedure must be performed under anesthesia. The teeth are scaled (removing plaque and tartar) and then polished. Particular attention is paid to the area beneath the gum line to avoid gum disease arising from hidden bacteria. Your pet goes home the same day, but with a healthier, more comfortable mouth and fresher smelling breath! We suggest getting that dental scheduled as quickly as is possible.
