As a pet owner, you look forward to the warmer spring weather because it means you can finally spend more time outdoors with your furry friend. Unfortunately, it also means more exposure to environmental hazards for your dog or cat. This requires awareness of these dangers and active steps on your part to help your pet avoid them.
PLEASE WELCOME NEW STAFF
Next time you come into the clinic, you may see a new face at the front desk and another new face working with the animals. We are happy to introduce to you two new team members at Lancaster Vet Clinic.
Debbie Smith from Cassville is our new full time front desk person. She has a friendly face and a smile that comes to you right through the phone. Debbie loves cats.
Megan Stewart is our new full time certified veterinary technician. A certified vet tech is an animal nurse/lab tech who has completed a two year college program and passed a licensing exam. Megan lives in Boscobel with her bearded dragon (ask for a picture!).
Please welcome our new members and be patient while they get more comfortable with the computer, phone system, and where things are in the building.
The heartworm parasite presents a serious and sometimes fatal threat to companion animals. Unfortunately, it is not difficult for your pet to be infected, and it’s difficult to treat in dogs. There is no heartworm treatment for cats.
