Autumn Is Here


Fresh cool air and the beautiful colors of fall await you.  Take a walk and don’t forget to take your dog.  Your best friend will enjoy refreshing air and smells of autumn.  It is also a good time to make sure your pets have their vaccinations up to date.  If you have an older dog or cat, check out our articles on Healthcare for senior dogs and for senior cats.  Doctor Ducor explains what tests are needed as your best friend ages.  Print out and fill in the appropriate Healthcare Checklist.  That way you will not forget any important information at the next veterinarian appointment.



The Death Of A Pet Is Always Difficult

In this issue we present an article by Dr. Donald Ducor (above) on a subject that all pet owners eventually encounter.  In March of 2011, Dr. Don’s German wire-haired pointer, Shotzee, died.  Shotzee suffered from terminal liver cancer.  The loss of a pet is always difficult.  Often it is made harder by the lack of understanding that none pet owners may display.  Dr. Ducor writes about his decision, made with the help of modern veterinary medicine.  It is a process that is undertaken by veterinarians and pet owners every day.   As pet owners we know that our beloved pets are never replaced.  Rather the healing process is helped by finding another unique loving pet to bond with.




We are happy to report that in February, 2012, Dr. Ducor found such a pet. His new best friend is a seven month old female Munsterlander named Leica (below).
