In order to provide the best care possible for your pets, Dr. Laws believes in keeping an open line of communication between our hospital and the community's pet owners. These are a few issues that Dr. Laws highlighted as important for our pet population.
"First of all, I wanted to give a big thank you to everyone who has invited us into their families," Dr. Laws said. "Without your support we wouldn't be able to fulfill our goal of caring for animals, so we want to express our gratitude for that."
Dr. Laws also emphasized the importance of preventing heartworm disease.
"Compared to the rest of the country, our area is at higher risk for heartworm disease, so being informed and protecting your pet are of the utmost importance. The cost of prevention is far less expensive and stressful than treatment, so prevention is critical."

In addition to heartworm disease, Dr. Laws noted fleas and ticks as potential risks that pet owners should be aware of.
"Fleas and ticks on your pet's body is not only a disturbing thought, it's a reality that causes many pets to suffer. Flea and tick bites can cause various health problems, and they can also be transmissible to your family. The most important thing to do is to make sure your pet is on a regular preventative."
