Vaccine Clinic Information

This year alone we have seen 104 cases of canine parvovirus. Parvo is a intestinal disease that particularly affects puppies, as well as older dogs, who have not had all of their vaccinations. We recommend vaccinating puppies starting at 6 weeks of age, and boosting those vaccines every 3 to 4 weeks until they have had at least 4 sets. It is impossible for a puppy to have been fully vaccinated before 16 weeks of age. 
Of those 104 cases of parvo seen this year, we have unfortunately 13 have not survived. With treatment there is a success rate of about 80-90%. Without treatment there is only about a 20% chance of survival. 
Because of these facts, Marina Animal Clinic started doing vaccine days to help owners be able to afford vaccines not only for parvo virus, but all vaccines. 
Vaccine days are Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, and we have recently added Saturdays to the Vaccine Clinic Days. We also have heartworm tests discounted those days as well.

This pretty girl is our current rescue dog at the clinic. She was brought in a couple of weeks ago and surrendered to us from her owners. She had been in a vicious dog fight and had horrendous wounds, which the original owners had attempted to bandage on their own. Unfortunately, her bandages were wrapped too tight, causes her right hind leg to lose circulation. Because of this, we did have to amputate her leg.  She is still undergoing treatment for her many other bite wounds and lacerations, and is being treated for anemia as well. She is improving everyday, and getting very spoiled. She is very much loved her, and we have given her the new name of I-Lean.

Easter Safety Tips

Easter for children can mean egg hunts, baskets of candy, and going to the mall to meet the Easter Bunny. Easter for our pets can mean a few temptations to chew, ingest, and lick things that aren’t good for them. With Easter right around the corner, remember to take a few extra steps to keep your pets safe.
Here are 8 safety tips for pets around the Easter holidays.
1: Say No to Easter Grass
Easter grass can make a basket really pretty but it’s irresistible for dogs and cats. They love to chew on it and if ingested it can be dangerous.
2: Keep Chocolate Away From Pets
Chocolate contains theobromine and can cause hyperactivity, seizures, and an elevated heart rate in dogs. Keep the Easter stash hidden and away from your pets.
3: Sugar Substitute Xylitol is Toxic to Pets
Candy that has the sugar substitute xylitol, a sweetener, is toxic to dogs and cats. It’s often found in candy, gum, and some baked goods. If your pet ingests it, a drop in blood sugar can occur and cause problems such as seizures and liver failure.
4: Easter Lilies are Toxic to Cats
Easter lilies are very pretty but cats have a tendency to chew on them. These flowers are toxic to cats and can cause vomiting and lethargy. Hopefully your cat doesn’t jump on every surface in the house and you’ll be able to find a nice spot for the flowers. But if not, it may be best to avoid having Easter lilies in the house to keep your cat safe.
5: Table Scraps Can Be Harmful to Pets
Table scraps from dinner can be bad for your pet. The ingredients, spices, and fat content can make your pet ill, upset their stomach, or cause other problems. Remind your family and guests to not give any food to any of your pets.
6: Don’t Lose Track of Where You Hide Easter Eggs
Real or fake eggs might be mistaken as a treat or toy by your dog. If your dog eats or chews on a fake plastic egg, it can cause intestinal problems. Real eggs that have been forgotten during an Easter egg hunt can spoil and if your dog finds them a few days later and eats them, expect an upset stomach. Keep track of the number of eggs you hide in your yard and where they are to gather up any undiscovered ones after the hunt is over.
7: Stuffed Easter Toys for Kids May Not Be Suitable for Pets
Toys for the kids can be mistaken as toys for the dog, especially by the dog. Stuffed bunnies, chickens, and other plastic toys can be chewed, swallowed, and slobbered on by your furry buddy. Your dog might swallow plastic, stuffing, or other parts that can cause intestinal blockages or an upset stomach. Keep the baskets out of reach of your pet.
8: Crowds Can Be a Challenge with Pets

Crowded houses with friends, family, and guests can be overwhelming to your dog and cat. If your pets do not handle crowds well, crating your dog in a room away from the guests or putting your cat in the bedroom is the best solution with some food, water, and their bed. It cuts down on them getting into trouble, eating something they shouldn’t, and being easily frightened by all the people and noise.

In the month of March, we offer 10% off select flea and tick products. We offer a wide range of options that will best suit your pet's needs. Flea and tick prevention should be used year round, especially in Oklahoma since we have such unpredictable weather. Take advantage of this deal while you are able to do so. It not only beneficial to your pets health, but to yours as well. If you have any questions about which flea and tick product is right for you and your pet, please feel free to contact us. 
They're creepy, they're crawly...and they can carry diseases. Fleas and ticks are not just a nuisance, but pose animal and human health risks. They suck your pet's blood, they suck human blood, and can transmit diseases.  Some of the diseases that fleas and ticks can transmit from animals to humans (zoonotic diseases) include plague, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, bartonellosis and others.  That's why it's critical to protect your pets from these pesky parasites and keep the creepy crawlies out of your home.   
Fortunately, there are many effective flea and tick preventives on the market to help control the pests and prevent the spread of zoonotic diseases. Knowing what kind of product to use, and how to use it, is critical to the health and safety of your pet.Many are spot-on (topical) products that are applied directly to your pet’s skin, but there are some that are given orally (by mouth). Although medicines and pesticides must meet U.S. government-required safety standards before they can be sold, it is still critical that pet owners carefully consider their flea and tick preventive options (and closely read the label) before they treat their pets with one of these products.
