Hi Guys!It’s your favorite old lab, Salem. Sorry about the delay, but old Jer spent more time in the hospital, this time for a bad infection. I missed him for several months, but the guys at Eastridge were very nice to me. I’ve even been able to get a couple to give me extra treats. Doc is back at work, but only one day a week right now. It’s been a bad year for ticks this year because of the mild winter. Make sure your dogs and cats are using some type of prevention. There are a lot of choices: monthly skin application, monthly pills, 3 month pills, and 8 month collars. All of these work. With your dogs there is also a Lyme vaccine. This is a bad infection that can be prevented. Lyme is only one of several tick-transmitted diseases. If your dog gets ticks, call the hospital. Eastridge still sees too many cases of Parvovirus in dogs. This can occur in any dog not up to date on vaccines, especially puppies. The young pit bulls are more often seen with it, so make sure to vaccinate early, starting at 6-7 weeks. Now that I’m older I can discuss aging problems out of personal history. Once we reach 10 years old, our eyes start to slowly cloud up. Some of us lose our hearing. If you think your dogs and cats are acting strangely due to age, talk to your doctor. Like our owners, some of us will develop senility issues. The most dangerous problem due to age is arthritis. Look for your pet getting up slower, having problems getting up stairs and cars, and slipping on non-carpeted floors. These are the easy signs. We won’t cry due to the pain. Talk to your doctor early to help delay the onset and relieve pain. Once again, thank you for reading.Salem
