Berkeley Veterinary Center’s Top 5 Pet Care Blogs of 2018

Fear free veterinary care can have a positive impact on pet health.

2019 is upon us, and we’re looking forward to a new year. It’s exciting to think ahead to all the upcoming goals, challenges, and triumphs that hopefully await us. Surely many of us are already hitting the gym more often, practicing mindfulness and gratitude, and spending more time with our loved ones (including our pets!).

Don’t get us wrong, 2018 was filled with wonderful moments for our staff, and many of those were with our Bayville area patients and clients. So, before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we wanted to share one more look back with you. Our monthly blog has been a privilege to research, write, and publish this year, and we’re flattered that so many of you are reading it. To that end, we’re looking back at Berkeley Veterinary Center’s top 5 pet care blogs of 2018, and we hope you enjoy!

#3: Tips for New Cat Owners
Whether you’ve owned cats for years, or are just delving into the world of being a cat parent, we can all agree that cats are the best. They are smart, loving, energetic, and so much fun to be around. And, either way, there is always more to learn about these creatures who we love so much. Meow?

#2: Flea Control: The Greatest Thing You Do This Summer
Summer is the time to think and dream big, right? We plan camping trips, picnics, family reunions, and extravagant vacations. However, while we are having our summer fun, some of the smallest pests around are ravaging our yards, trails, and, unfortunately, our pets. Fleas can be daunting, particularly in the summer months, but with a proactive approach to flea control, your pet can enjoy summer fun with the family, and you can rest easy. Read more…
