While every dog owner has heard of rabies, many may not know exactly what it is or what signs to look for. Because of the lethal nature of rabies, it’s extremely important to make sure your dog is properly vaccinated. Most of the time rabies is contracted by the bite and saliva of another warm-blooded animal that is infected by the acute viral infection.

Does the idea of loading up your pet (or pets) to take them to the vet cause you stress? Are you elderly, disabled, or unable to drive? Does your family have multiple or aging pets that cannot easily, or safely, get into and be transported in your vehicle? Do you have young children at home that you would have to bring along with you to your vet appointment? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should take the stress out of visiting the vet by scheduling your next appointment with Creature Comfort, your mobile veterinarian in Kalamazoo.

Fall is a great time of year for many people. The holidays are upon us and it’s generally not too cool nor too hot for a long stroll with your dog through the neighborhood.

Lyme disease is transmitted via the bite of an infected tick. Dogs, cats, and even humans can be infected with the disease. Dogs more than anything, however, are likely to become bitten because of their tendency to run and explore in the woods. Tick bites tend to happen in the spring and summer with some years being worse than others. Left untreated, Lyme disease can be fatal, so it’s important to keep an eye out for symptoms.

Like humans, pets can suffer from a range of allergies! While the symptoms are different – humans usually experience itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, and runny noses and pets usually present with skin and ear problems – they’re equally bothersome. And besides the annoying symptoms, allergies can also be detrimental to your pet’s overall health. In this post, your mobile veterinarian in Kalamazoo will look at some of the signs that your pet has allergies as well as treatment options.

As a mobile veterinarian in Kalamazoo, a lot of what I do involves treating pets for fleas and ticks and providing my clients with high-quality, veterinary grade medication. Besides treating your pets on a consistent schedule there are other things you can do to help prevent your pet from being infested with fleas or ticks. It’s also important to understand that cats, even ones who don’t go outside, can get fleas or ticks that you unknowingly bring inside. In this post, we will look at some preventative measures you can take to help prevent fleas and ticks from becoming a problem for you and your pets.

More than just being an uncomfortable nuisance, fleas can be hazardous to your pet’s (or even your own) health and cause a lot of problems. As most people are aware, fleas stay alive by jumping on animals and biting them and feeding on their blood. When a flea bites your pet (or even people in your home) they also deposit saliva which can cause severe skin irritation and hair loss. What’s even more troubling is that if the infestation is bad enough or the animal is small enough, they can actually get really sick or die from blood loss (anemia).

There are many different reasons pet owners find mobile pet vets not only more convenient, but also less risky than visiting a traditional veterinarian’s office. There are some limitations when it’s comes to veterinary house call services, typically emergency care and surgeries would not be offered because of the need for hospitalization and monitoring. In this post, we will look at some of the reasons more and more pet owners are choosing a mobile veterinarian to care for their pets.
