Although we should be outdoors enjoying the nice California weather this rain has us stuck in side. As we sit staring out the window in disbelief that there is rain and in JULY; We should take the time to clean, and take a look around our yards for toxic chemicals that our pets may come in contact with. The following toxins in your home and yard may be hazardous to your pet: lawn chemicals and fertilizers, insect repellents, weed control products, antifreeze, slug bait, ant bait, rat poison, and pool chemicals. Unlike humans, who change their clothes and bathe regularly (at least we hope) our dogs and cats don't change their fur or wash their paws every day. So it is important that if they come in to contact with a toxic chemical or ingest a toxic substance you contact our office immediately.
For a list of chemicals /plants visit the ASPCA website for more information

Have been taking my cats to RCVH for years. The Vets and office staff have always been great. My current Vet Dr. Brickman is exceptional: she took over from my previous Vet who moved away. She is very patient and listens to my concerns regarding my elderly male cat. She is a real professional.
