VCA Gives Traveling Tips for You and Your Pet



Planning a trip with your pet soon? From the Trusted Saskatoon Vet's themselves here are some travelling tips that will lead to a helpful experience. 


Travelling Tips


  1. Keep your Pet safe, secure in a well-ventilated crate/carrier.
  2. Warm up with short trips before the long trip to get them used to travel.
  3. Feed your pet a few hours before you leave, and not during travel.
  4. Never leave your animal alone/unattended in a vehicle especially in warm weather.
  5. Have your pets travelling kit ready, including water, bowls, medication (if needed) as well as an emergency kit with bandages.
  6. Make sure your pet has a microchip or some form of identification.
  7. Keep their head inside the vehicle while driving and be sure windows are closed enough so the pet cannot escape.
  8. Bring your pets vaccination and medical records.
  9. Bring your own water!
  10. Consider getting easy to clean seat and floor covers for your convenience.

Giardia




Are you or your pet at risk of Giardia infection? Giardia is a protozoan parasitic infection. Although there are various sources of contamination, one of the most common for our pets is drinking from untreated contaminated creeks, lakes or rivers. Once infected the most common symptom is acute, (or intermittent and can potentially be chronic if left untreated) smelly, frothy, mucousy diarrhea. This parasite can be transferred to humans. So, if you and your pet have recently been in areas at risk and symptoms occur, it is best to be seen by your veterinarian and/or physician. 


Do You Know Where You're Going?



 



When travelling with our furry family members we often forget to check to see if the environment is safe for them to travel to with us. Some things like heartworm are much more prevalent in hotter climates. This is a parasite that you can prevent your pet from getting as long as they are treated prior to exposure. How high is the risk for Lyme disease from ticks where you’re going? Possibly having them vaccinated beforehand would help but know ahead of time is the key. If travelling abroad, will your pet be allowed into the country? If not properly vaccinated and dewormed with specific regulations your pet could be quarantined or not permitted to enter.


Every country has its own rules and restrictions in regards to what a pet needs to be able to accompany you. You can start to sniff out all the answers by clicking here. The government site will also direct you to the correct people you need to contact if you cannot find all the answers you are looking for.


For any other questions if travelling within Canada don't hesitate to give VCA a call.

Trusted Saskatoon Vets at VCA Frontier Animal Hospital Discuss Gravol for Pets

Keeping your pet healthy is the #1 priority of VCA Frontier Animal Hospital Saskatoon. Their Saskatoon animal hospital offers Saskatoon pet owners an affordable dog & cat spay and neuter solution and full veterinary services. Their team is not only caring and compassionate, but they show continued dedication to the cause where they continue to offer an affordable solution to pet care, in this full service Trusted Saskatoon vet clinic. From the first joyous experiences of a new puppy or kitten to the final loving moments with a beloved senior pet, they are with you every step of the way. VCA Canada Frontier Animal Hospital are Trusted Saskatoon Vets and you can find them under the Vets & Pets Category.


The Experts at VCA Frontier Discuss Gravol - Is It Safe for Your Pet?




Just like some people, your pets can get motion sickness. That is   never a good thing when you’re trying to get somewhere and "Fluffy" upchucks in the vehicle. A common medication that people use for themselves is Gravol (main ingredient dimenhydrinate) and the experts at VCA Frontier Animal Hospital often get phone calls asking if they can give it to their pet.

Like most medications, there are contradictions in some pets. It should be avoided in pets with glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, seizure disorders, cardiovascular disease or hypertension. With some pets, it can have some adverse effects and they can become hyperactive, cause vomiting, diarrhea, or central nervous system depression (heart rate and respiration rate can decrease.)


Lethargy is seen quite often (which in some pets may be a good thing while traveling). It is more effective in dogs than in cats. VCA Frontier suggests giving them the medication 20 to 30 minutes before traveling. The dose recommended is between 4 to 8 mg for every kg by mouth and it can be given up to every 8 hours if needed. 


Example: 6.4 kg dog can be given a 25mg tablet. Always try at the very lowest dose to make sure they have no adverse reactions first.  




 



If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call VCA at 306-934-8288.  Make sure to never ever give a human medication to an animal unless you double check to make sure it is safe to give with a veterinary medical professional.

Prairie Laser Ink Trusted Saskatoon Printer Ink & Toner Suppliers Give Tips about Printers and Cartridges

Prairie Laser Ink Gives Tips about Printers and Cartridges 


Printers and cartridges can really range in price.  So how can you tell if you are getting a good deal? Let the experts explain in this article: There are a few things to look for.



1.    Cost of the printer – If the printer is under $100, it is almost a guarantee your ink cartridges will be pricey.  Lots of printer companies put out cheap printers at a loss only to recoup their losses “hand over fist” with their expensive inkjet cartridges.




2.    Cost of the ink – Most printers have their ink or toner number on the outside of the box. Research the price of the cartridge(s) and how many pages’ maximum it is rated for.  Keep in mind page rating are based on a maximum yield, not on an average yield.  Look for a printer that has a reliable generic cartridge to reduce your cost of printing.




3.    Tri-color VS Tank cartridges – There are two main designs of inkjet printers.  One has all colors locked into one cartridge, the other has each color separate.  Traditionally, the individual tanks with each color separated tend to be more affordable and produce a better quality print.


There are many factors that go into choosing the right printer. Contact the experts at Prairie Laser if you need help selecting your new printer!

Gibbon Heating & Air Conditioning Receives a Happy Client Testimonial 


“I had Brent and his team over to install A/C in my house. Not only did he give me the best price of all the other places I got quotes from, but he also has a great warranty on labor and parts, in addition to providing a home follow-up visit the week after installation to go ensure the quality of the work and my satisfaction with it. Brent and his employees were super professional, knowledgeable, and beyond helpful. While they were installing the A/C, they also addressed my complaint about a gas line that was placed in an absurd spot on the wall of my basement and moved it for me. They also offered suggestions for small projects I could do myself or hire someone to do to address some of my issues with heating and HRV efficiency, as well as some of the plumbing around my house. I would hire Brent and his team again in a heartbeat to take care of any plumbing, heating and cooling needs I have. It was high-quality work for a really affordable price! Thanks a million, Brent and company!” - Leanne (Saskatoon)
