With Labor Day approaching, we wanted to remind you that many Labor Day festivities and foods can be harmful to our pets. Keep your pets happy, healthy, and safe this holiday weekend by following these tips:

✔️Protect Your Plate: Many foods we enjoy on Labor Day such as onions, corn cobs, chocolate, grapes, and alcohol can be toxic to pets or pose a choking hazard.

✔️ Beat The Heat: Dogs are susceptible to heat stroke. Make sure there is plenty of water and shade for our canine friends to keep cool.

✔️ Guard The Grill: Keep pets away from the grill, grill tools, lighter fluid, and matches in order to avoid burns and hazardous chemical ingestion.

✔️ Forgo The Fireworks: Not only can fireworks frighten pets, they can cause severe burns. Keep your pets calm and safe in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area.

If your pet should experience an emergency over the holiday weekend, remember that Avets is open 24/7 for emergencies: 412-373-4200. ...

It's #NationalDogDay and if that's not a reason to celebrate, we don't know what is!

Celebrated annually on August 26th, National Dog Day started in 2004 and is a day dedicated to raising awareness and celebrating all dogs. What would we do without our furry companions??

We hope you and your dog are celebrating this day with extra treats and cuddles. Share a photo of your pup celebrating in the comments! ...

To our clients: Thank you for your support while we work through these uncertain and stressful times together. We appreciate your patience as we’ve introduced new hospital protocols over the past few months.

We are seeing an unprecedented volume of emergency cases and receiving a high volume of phone calls at our hospital. With the added stress of a global pandemic on everyone’s minds – we can assure you that our team feels the pressure too. Our team is caring for each pet that comes through our door, all while taking added precautions to keep you, your family, and their fellow co-workers safe. Without added safety precautions, we risk not being able to provide care for the pets in our community.

To help better prepare you for emergency and specialty visits at this time, we’ve included a breakdown of our triage guidelines in the video below. We also have a new "What to Expect" page on our website for reference: avets.com/what-to-expect.

We ask for your continued support, respect, and patience as we work to provide care for your pets. As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out: 412-373-4200. ...
