lab dog smilingApril is Pet First Aid Awareness month, and Bayview Veterinary Clinic wants to make sure that your pet is protected from harm.

As the weather gets warmer and your pets spend more time outside, please remember to put together a first aid kit that will help you take care of them in the event of an emergency. It's important to bring this kit with you anytime you go for hike, on a camping trip, or are staying any place far away from veterinary care clinics.

For a guidleine on what to include in your kit, read the ASPCA's article on How To Make a Pet First Aid Kit.

dog mixed breed terrier We're organizing a local fundraiser to purchase microchip scanners for the East Troy and Mukwonago police departments.

These microchip scanners allow the police department to scan a lost pet and reunite them with their owners.

Stop by Bay View Veterinary Clinic at 890 Main Street in Mukwonago where you can purchase raffle tickets or homemade dog treats.

cat grooming 350pxCat owners are all too familiar with the sound of their pet getting rid of a hairball.

However, did you know that this pesky side effect of cat grooming could be a sign of poor health?

Healthy cats should be able to digest the hair properly, so if your cat is frequently coughing up hairballs, there may be a reason for it.

Here are some reasons why your cat may be experiencing this more than usual.

SkunkThe sun is shining and spring has arrived - but so have wild animals, including skunks.

While skunks are generally gentle, docile creatures, they won't hesitate to spray if they feel threatened or afraid. If you have a dog who likes to sniff around and wander through wooded areas, you should be wary of skunks this spring.

Luckily, you'll likely know right away if your dog gets sprayed by a skunk. You'll probably smell your pet before you see them and, when you do, you're going to want to give them a bath.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition recently put out a voluntary recall on their canned food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Although animals benefit from vitamin D, ingesting too much of it can lead to potential health issues. Luckily, in most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of the canned food.

Hill’s is working in coordination with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to get the affected products recalled. As of right now, the recall only extends to canned food and does not apply to dry food, cat food, or other treats.
