Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is my pet scooting on his rear end?
A: Small glands on either side of the anus are supposed to
empty every time your pet goes to the bathroom. When they
don't empty, it bothers your pet, so they scoot to try to relieve
their discomfort.

Q: How long is a canine/feline pregnancy?
A: Typically between 63-65 days.

Q: Why does my pet scratch all the time?
A: Most of the time, an itchy pet has fleas. Fleas prefer to
bite dogs or cats rather than humans, so you may not notice
that they are there, but Fido and Fluffy do! Some pets are
even allergic to fleas, which makes them very miserable. If
you suspect that your pet is allergic, call us to make an
appointment so that we can get your pet some relief.
