Pet Home Service: A Convenient Way For You and Your Pet

Pet Home Service: A Convenient Way For You and Your Pet

Pet Home Service could be the next big thing for you and your pet.

Have you planned to go to the vet only to have it cancelled? Something important came up and you have to reschedule the vet visit.

Or you have to postpone a visit to the vet because of an emergency situation?

Or the weather for that day is not on your side?

Imagine yourself all ready and prepared, your furry kid is also all prepped up then bam! You have to cancel or move the vet visit date.

Such things are a bummer to your day.

Sometimes you just want to tick off your list of things to do.

How about if you call your vet and ask them for Pet Home Service?

So instead of you going to the vet, the vet will be the one to go to your residence and provide care for your furry kid.

Convenient, yes?

You realize you actually have more time to do other things. You do not have to feel stressed in driving your pet to the vet. And you also take the stress from your furbaby of travelling to the vet.

This could be a real winner in your pet care book.

Do you know that some vet clinics also provide delivery along with the pet home service?

You can have your pet food and even other pet supplies get delivered through Pet Home Service. This is true for pet clinics that sell pet supplies.

Most clinics may do this for additional delivery charge but there are pet clinics that offer this for FREE!

The next time your pet requires a visit to the vet, consider Vet Home Service.

No need to even get out of your house!

Book for your Pet Home Service now at Makati Dog and Cat Hospital!

Free delivery of pet food!

Pet Home Service: Why This Could Be The Best Option For You And Your Pet

Pet Home Service: Why This Could Be The Best Option For You And Your Pet

Have you ever considered availing of pet home service? Or is it your first time to hear about it?

Pet home service is when you ask your vet to come to your place instead of you going to the vet. Yes, that service exists!

Read on to know why you should consider Home Service for Pets:

Convenient

Just imagine your vet going to your home. It is a very comforting thought that you do not have to prep up your pet for the journey. And that includes you preparing for the trip to the vet.

Pet home service is a convenient way to keep your furry kid up to date with the vaccines and other pet needs.

Hassle Free

Aside from the convenience in opting for Pet Home Service, it is also hassle free. No need to think of the traffic situation, weather condition and the mood of your dog – even your mood.

All you have to do is book your pet for a home service appointment then wait for the time and date. That’s it!

Comes with Freebies

If you are thinking of availing of Pet Home Service, you could enjoy the freebies as well. Some pet clinic or hospitals allow free delivery of pet food when you avail of the home service.

That’s right! Free pet food delivery right at your home. It’s like an all in one package for you and your pet without you going anywhere!

Think about it, you have more time to do other things and at the same time feel confident that you are giving the best for your furry kids even if you are not around (because maybe you are having a massage or something)

So the next time your pet’s appointment is up, don’t hesitate to take advantage of Pet Home Service.

Ehrlichia

Can My Dog Get Dengue?

dengueDoes this mean that my dog has Dengue?

I noticed that my dog has small reddish dots scattered in several parts of his body. When I brought my pet to the Veterinarian, the Doctor said that my dog has a low platelet count.

Let us start from the most basic.

Dengue as we know it is transmitted by mosquito-bite.

With dogs, the most common infection they get from mosquitoes is heartworm disease.

Most of the time, when our dogs get this small reddish dots or spots scattered or confined in some parts of their body, with low platelet, the most common disease that we diagnose is Ehrlichiosis, caused by Ehrlichia sp. (pronounced as Ehr-lee-kia).

For the familiarity of disease, let us call it Ehrlichia in our discussion. The effect of this disease is dengue-like for our dogs. Our pooch could have haemorrhage around the body, in the form of tiny red dots or sometimes bruises.

In other cases they could have nose-bleeding or small wound eruptions on the skin. But the most common signs that owners observe are weakness, loss of appetite (even with their favorite meal!).

There are a number of dogs with a lot of eye secretion aka ‘muta’. If you check their gums and the inside of their ears, you could see that it’s relatively pale from the original pinkish color.

All these signs are brought about by low red blood cell count and its components, low platelet and most of the time high white blood cell count.

How did my dog get it if you mentioned that it’s not transmitted by mosquitoes?

The main culprit in spreading Ehrlichia is TICKS. In Filipino we call them “Garapata” and in Cebuano we call “libon”.

These are the spider-looking 8-legged lazy parasites that we always see sucking on our pets, and yes they look like they are asleep most of the time when they are on our dogs.

These ticks either look like maroon and thin (male) coupled with a fat, gray and big female engorged with blood. Don’t be fooled by the lazy character of these parasites, ticks are very fast crawlers and they know how to find their host (dog).

It means that our dog can get ticks even if there is no direct contact with other dogs. It only takes one tick bite to transmit Ehrlichia. It is also very possible that our dog could have gotten the disease way before they start showing clinical signs.

What are the clinical signs of Ehrlichiosis?

Aside from the common clinical signs already mentioned, some dogs may show the-not-so-common clinical signs like blindness, neurologic signs like seizure and lameness (trouble walking).

So far, we have noticed quite a number of Golden Retrievers having seizures when they turn positive for Ehrlichia. Other dogs could have liver and or kidney failure. And some they could have pregnant-looking tummies, we call ascites, because of enlarged spleen or there is abnormal fluid accumulation in the abdomen.

In short, Ehrlichia may show a lot of different clinical signs, depending on the organ system it affects. German shepherd needs extra attention if they turn positive for this disease because the effect to them is worse than any other breed, and may be fatal.

How can this be diagnosed?

newsletter2nd1

Once we notice at least one of the clinical signs, and with history of ticks, normally I check the Complete blood count (CBC). If there is something wrong with the CBC then I would recommend the Ehrlichia Antibody test kit.

If the condition is worst, then more complete blood test are recommended to check for liver, kidney and electrolytes.

Can my dog be treated once he gets this disease?

Yes! If your dog has acute or newly acquired Ehrlichia it is highly treatable.

In fact, for acute cases of this disease, the dog gets better after a day or 2 of treatment.

Don’t get me wrong, the treatment of this disease is not short at all. It could last from few weeks to months to years.

For chronic (long-term) phase of the disease though, the chances of recovery is relatively slim.

If I get bitten by a tick, can I also get this Ehrlichia?

So far, there are no reported cases of Ehrlichia from dogs transmitted to humans (yet!) in the Philippines.

BUT there are reported cases of this disease transferred by ticks to humans in the country of Venezuela, South America.

Again, it’s better to be safe than sorry.newsletter2nd2

How can we prevent the spread of this disease?

This is a serious problem that affects a great population of dogs.

It’s complicated because it circulates with the blood, then affecting most of the organ systems. Early prevention will help eliminate this problem.

Get rid of the ticks to get rid of the disease!

There are monthly tick and flea preventatives that we can use for our dogs.

Also, don’t forget to clean the surroundings where your dog normally stays, by brushing.

These ticks can hide in cracks and crevices for 6 months up to a year-and a-half without feeding. Once hungry they will attach back to their host and the cycle repeats again.

Ehrlichia

Do Dogs Get Dengue Fever?

If pet owners like you can get dengue, do dogs get dengue fever?

Does your dog have:
1. Small reddish dots or small wound eruptions on his skin?
2. Blood in his nostrils?
3. Has eye secretions?
4. No appetite and appears weak?
5. Pale gums and ears when you check inside?

If you say Yes to all these symptoms, it’s time to visit your Vet ASAP!

These 5 symptoms can be indicators of low platelet count, which we humans often relate to dengue.

Before you panic, READ THIS: your dog cannot get dengue fever.

These dengue-like symptoms in your pet dog can be an indication that he is positive for Ehrlichia (pronounced as Ehr-lee-kia).

When ignored, Ehrlichia can lead to blindness and exhibit neurologic signs like seizure and lameness (trouble walking).

How can you best prevent the dengue-like symptoms of Ehrlichia?

The best way to prevent this is to have your pet dog tested for Ehrlichia. Ask your Vet about the Ehrlichia Antibody Test Kit.

Since we are now in the rainy season where incidence of dengue peaks for humans, we were able to get a good deal on our Ehrlichia Antibody Test Kit.
