Summer can be a fun time for pet owners and their animals to get outside and play, but the extreme heat can be very hazardous to pets. Every year, companion animals suffer and die when their owners leave them in a parked car while they run errands. Temperatures inside cars can quickly rise 20 to 40 degrees higher than the outside temperature, and animals can die from heatstroke in just 15 minutes. Here are a few tips to keep pets safe, healthy and happy during the hot summer season.
Please note that the clinic will be closed on Wednesday, July 1st for Canada day. We will re-open on Thursday, July 2nd. In case of an emergency please contact the Toronto Animal Health Partners at 416-380-7400, or the Central Toronto Veterinary Referral and Emergency at 416-784-4444.
Hope everyone has a wonderful summer!
ATTENTION: At this time we have new protocols in place to help keep our staff and clients safe and to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. We have increased our appointment times and are staggering our appointments. When arriving at the clinic please call us and wait in your car for further assistance. To practice social distancing, only pets will be allowed in the clinic. Please stay in your car or in the "waiting area" outside and we will come get your pet for the appointment. Payment will be done by credit card over the phone or by e-transfer. Thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times
