November is here! It is a great month with a lot of things going on! Check out our November page for some great information.

Diabetes awareness month is in full swing!  This is a disease that we see in pets too.  

Nature's beauty is all around us, unfortunately some of it can bring hazards to our pets.  We often think that the cool weather will bring an end to the flea season, however it is still necessary to be diligent in our flea treatment protocols.  The flea population builds up all summer and we often will see a "flea bloom" in late fall. 

There are still plenty of allergens in the environment this time of year. Farmers are still harvesting their crops all the while stirring up dust, molds and pollens.  These can often exacerbate our pet's allergies, so please call the office if you think your pet is sensitive to them.

Dogs and cats can get mammary cancer too! Lincoln Land Animal Clinic, Ltd.217-245-9508

If you plan to be out of town for the holidays and are planning to board your pet, please call the office to make sure they are current on all vaccinations.  Many boarding facilities require additional vaccines than what is required by law.     

 Help your pet through the Holidays with these great tips from Doggone safe.  

Getting a New Pet?

If you are thinking of getting a new pet this spring, we are happy to help you choose the right pet for your lifestyle. Each species and breed has different requirements for exercise, grooming and health care needs.  It is important to understand these things before bringing home a new pet.  If you would like to do research on your own, check out our pet selection links!  "Becoming a Dog Owner" links to several articles including how to prepare for being a pet owner, the cost of owning a pet, and choosing the right pet for you.  The other two links provide information on avoiding puppy mills and how to find a reputable breeder.  Looking to rescue a pet?  Search local adoptable pets on our feed.
