Pet - Vet related events/observances for November


  • ASPCA's Adopt a Senior Pet Month - We all know how cute a cuddly puppy or kitten is, but keep those older critters in mind when looking for a new pet.

  • National Pet Cancer Awareness Month - Just like with humans, early detection can lead to a cure or remission. Many cancers are treatable via oral medications or scheduled injections. Therapy is often very well tolerated, ask a team member more about detecting and fighting cancer.

  • National Pet Diabetes Month - Much like in humans, diabetes is a disease that can be treated, but we prefer to prevent it. Did you know that the risk of diabetes is 4x higher in an overweight cat?

  • National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week - November 3rd-9th - Show our support and appreciation for those who work so hard to care for those who don't have a voice or a home. The tireless job of caring for homeless pets, finding them a forever home.

Our products are often LESS EXPENSIVE than online stores after rebate or promotion.
These products are GUARANTEED EFFECTIVE when purchased from a licensed veterinarian.
