Trusted Saskatoon Vets at VCA Talk About Their Paw It Forward Project




Paw It Forward is VCA Canada’s national community outreach initiative focused on caring for life’s greatest companions.  This initiative supports our national, regional and local community endeavors, including supporting humane societies, rescue groups and SPCAs, and enhancing awareness and learning of animal health and welfare issues.  Paw It Forward also provides food for displaced pets across Canada and assists local families and pets in need.  This initiative engages the entire community – VCA Canada and our clients, local supporting agencies and their clients, and our vendor partners – in a united effort to enhance and celebrate the human-animal bond. This is a unique project hosted by the Trusted Saskatoon Vets at VCA Frontier Vet Animal Hospital.


VCA Frontier Vet understands the impact caring for pets can have on a family. The human-animal bond creates a unique relationship that is everlasting and unlike any other. Caring for pets can ease loneliness, reduce stress and anxiety, promote social interaction, and encourage exercise. Pets are non-judgmental, loyal and trustworthy. They provide unconditional love and affection, social and emotional support and a deep sense of comfort. For families dealing with hardship, the importance of this bond can be even more critical to their overall well-being. Pets are a cherished member of many families, and can potentially be one’s only family.

VCA Canada understands the importance of the human-animal bond. We know that it is not uncommon for marginalized pet parents to sacrifice their own food for their pets. We realize that many such pet parents struggle to provide medical care, vaccinations and spaying or neutering for their beloved animals. We stand ready to provide support and guidance to these families as they care for life’s greatest companions.

  "Each year, through the Paw It Forward initiative, we provide millions of dollars to support various initiatives across Canada" -VCA Canada

  VCA Canada is extremely excited to have more opportunities to help with your furry  companions, which they love being able to do. Being a Part of VCA means that they are a part of their group initiative Paw IT Forward. Please click here for more information.

Trusted Saskatoon Furnace and Duct Experts at Bridge City Duct Compare the Connection Between Allergies and Duct Cleaning

The Bridge City Duct Cleaning team know that cleaner air means healthier home, and with many years of experience in the HVAC industry, they are uniquely qualified! Be assured that Bridge City Duct Cleaning truly cares about the condition of your homes air quality as they see it for themselves every day, up close and personal. Bridge City Duct Cleaning is a Trusted Saskatoon Furnace and Duct Cleaning Company. 


What's the Connection Between Allergies and Duct Cleaning?


Trusted Saskatoon Furnace and Duct cleaners at Bridge City Duct Cleaning have some advice in regards to the connection between allergies and duct cleaning. Could there be a connection between your sneezing and your HVAC ducts? Well, it wouldn’t be the first time that dirty ducts turn out to be the culprit behind air conditioning allergies. 




The Link Between Allergies and Duct Cleaning


Does air duct cleaning reduce allergies? Consider this.
What happens when you blow the dust off an object? Often the airborne dust blows back at you. For those with allergies, what happens next is a sneezing fit.

When your HVAC blows air through ducts coated in dust, you end up with airborne dust in your home. So, it makes sense that cleaning dust, allergens and other contaminants from ducts could improve air quality and reduce allergy symptoms.

Poor air quality in your home or business can lead to a laundry list of nagging health issues. Is anyone complaining about eye, ear and throat irritations? Is there a lot of coughing and sneezing going on? How about headaches and dizziness? Well, dirty ducts can make the occupants of your place sick.

Contaminants Circulating Through Your Ducts


When considering allergies and duct cleaning, remember that all your indoor air circulates through your HVAC system and ductwork. Here’s a list of some of the undesirables that can be released into the air:


  • DUST MITES – It’s impossible to keep our homes dust-free when HVAC ducts are spewing out dust particles. Those particles quickly settle on surfaces. Dust is a big problem for allergy sufferers.
  • POLLEN – It’s tracked in on your clothes and shoes. It enters your home through open windows and doors. It’s another allergy sufferer’s enemy and it’s dispersed throughout your space by your HVAC system.
  • PET DANDER – We love our pets, but not everyone might share in our affection. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America estimates 3 in 10 people have allergic reactions to cats and dogs in the U.S. Your ductwork might be spreading dander throughout your space.
  • SMOG – If you think once you shut your door, you’re safe from outdoor pollutants, you’re wrong. Pollutants creep into your home. In fact, the EPA says indoor air is at least 2 to 5 times more polluted than outside!
  • VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS – Most of us don’t think much about VOCs. But they’re all around us. VOCs are harmful gases that are given off by common household items. Cleaning fluids and even printers produce VOCs. Your HVAC system is circulating these VOCs through your ducts.
  • MOLD AND MILDEW – Moisture in your ducts can lead to mold and mildew. When looking into allergies and duct cleaning, if your ducts are moldy, duct cleaning is needed. Mold is responsible for many allergy symptoms.
  • BACTERIA AND VIRUSES – If bacteria and viruses get into your home, they can circulate throughout your indoor space via air ducts and make people sick. In the worst case, you could end up with Sick Building Syndrome.




Other Allergies and Ductwork Cleaning Concerns


Not all the nasty stuff circulating from your ducts will make you sick. Some problems associated with duct issues are more uncomfortable than dangerous. Dirty ducts can produce odours and hot and humid air.



What the EPA Says About Allergies and Ductwork Cleaning


While the EPA hasn’t offered a blanket endorsement on duct cleaning because of the lack of comprehensive information on allergies and ductwork cleaning, it has recommended that you consider duct cleaning in the following instances:


  • There is substantial visible mold growth on surfaces such as ducts or other components of your HVAC system.

  • Ducts are infested with rodent or insect vermin.

  • Ducts are clogged with excessive dust and debris and release these particles into your home from your supply registers

Reducing Allergies and Ductwork Cleaning Benefits


  1. Improve air quality by removing contaminants from ducts
  2. Eliminate odours by ridding your ducts of mold, mildew, rodent droppings and other nasty things.
  3. Reduce dust (one of the primary reasons for allergies and ductwork cleaning.) Not only from the air, but from your furniture and other surfaces.
  4. Increase HVAC system efficiency by unclogging your ducts of debris. If dust and other stuff coats ducts, it interferes with airflow. Reduced airflow causes your HVAC system to work longer and harder. Clean air ducts reduce energy cots and extend the life of your system. 

Do You Need Duct Cleaning for Allergies? Call for Inspection. 


Were your ducts were properly installed? Has your HVAC system been regularly maintained through a preventative maintenance contract? If so, air duct cleaning for allergies might not be necessary.


However, sometimes ducts become damaged. Pesky rodents can enter ducts and create havoc. Call an HVAC professional to assess whether you need to address allergies and duct cleaning.


Wondering about the connection between your allergies and ductwork cleaning? Choose an HVAC company experienced with ductwork cleaning and certified by the National Duct Cleaners Association, such as Arista Air.




Summer brings in a lot of dust, pet fur and dander and all sorts of allergens that can be trapped in duct work for weeks on end. This only comes out after the ducts and vents warm up and forced air blows this debris around your home or office. Avoid the mess and nuisance by getting the ductwork and vents professionally cleaned and serviced prior by your Trusted Saskatoon furnace and Duct Cleaners Bridge City Duct Cleaning.

Find Local Labour Owner Rory Perron Tips to Encourage Millenials


Adults, parents, and society have a way of passing on a somewhat cynical attitude to the next generation.  When kids hear the low probability of becoming a professional athlete often enough, they adjust their attitude and goals downward accordingly.  How many times have you heard how bad the Millennial generation is? They hear it too and start adjusting their lives accordingly.  I recently heard about a Millennial that had already given up on ever buying a house because he felt he had no chance as a Millennial.  Many Millennials are giving up on life itself...  Are we contributing to a suicide problem by constantly trash talking Millennials? Perhaps it is time to start encouraging them instead of bashing them?

How Do We Encourage Millenials? 


Here are some thoughts from owner Rory Perron himself.

1. I generally keep my personal life to myself but I have a general desire to help people. So, if I can help some people by sharing some of my personal experience, I guess I will share. Last month, at 49 years old, I completed my first sprint distance triathlon. I am proud of myself because I achieved a goal that I had set for myself. (I am not looking for kudos from anyone, #SaskHumble.) Our next generation also needs to be proud of themselves. That's what makes them take pride in their work, makes them productive citizens, helps them feel good about life, and gives them a sense of purpose = positive mental health. Goals are the starting point. 

Here is a peek at some of Rory Perron's goals:


Fitness Goals:


  • Complete a Triathlon Sprint distance (short distance) --> DONE!
  • Complete a Triathlon Olympic distance (medium distance) --> Currently training for it this year
  • Complete a Triathlon Iron-Man distance (long distance) --> Before he turns 60 years old

Business Goals: 

  • Build a business for 10 years and sell it --> Done (but it took 18 years.)
  • Build a business 100 times bigger in half of the time --> Working on it


I think you get the picture - Can we support the development of goals? (bigger and bigger goals? Or S-M-A-R-T goals?) He has given examples of his fitness and business goals, but goals in relationships and spirituality or fulfillment also need to be nurtured. And, it is OK to dream BIG!


    2. The recommended dosage of positive to negative commentary is five to one.  People need approximately five positive reinforcement comments for every one constructive criticism.  Let’s get on with the positive reinforcement by offering five suggestions about how to succeed in every one pitfall to watch out for.  Let's pass out five compliments before pointing out a problem.

    3. I had a "down day" a few weeks ago.  I was having a hard time motivating myself to be productive and I doubted myself about everything I was doing.  I decided to make myself an “Up List”.  It is a list that I can use/read/activate on my next down day. (It is really hard to make this list on a down day!)  Over time, I came up with a list of the positive things that I have accomplished, things that I love about myself, and things that I am proud of.  It also includes some people that I can talk to that will inevitably make me feel better.  I also received some great input from other people.  This could be a great tool or exercise for any generation.
