The dog days of summer are upon us, and that means hazy air, hot temperatures, and lots of lemonade on ice. Thanks to our long winters here in the Northeast, many of us spend as much time as possible outdoors, trying to soak up enough sun to last us through the next season of gray skies and brutal snowstorms.
It’s important to keep in mind that pets need extra TLC during these hot and humid months. Heat safety for pets should be a priority for any family that shares a home with an animal. Your team at True Care Veterinary Hospital has the tips to help you take the best possible care of your furry friends.
Summertime is travel season for many families. From late May to early September, weekends are packed with road trips, camping, hanging out at the beach, or even flights to far away places. Many pet owners couldn’t imagine traveling without their four-legged companions, but bringing a pet along on a trip isn’t without considerable challenges.
True Care Veterinary Hospital understands your desire to share life’s experiences with your best pal. Our comprehensive list of pet travel tips is sure to get you and your pet off to a great start.
What to Bring
Packing for your pet is just as important as packing for yourself! Besides your pet’s daily care needs (food, water, medication), bring along some of the comforts of home, such as favorite toys, treats, blankets, and bedding, to help your pet feel secure in a new environment. Don’t forget the leash, collar, crate (if applicable), and plenty of plastic baggies for cleaning up after your pet.
Doctor Tullio is a kind, caring gentleman who has cared for my cocker spaniels for many years now. He has always been helpful‚ honest‚ and understanding with my pets and me. He is a man I trust completely and have and do refer others to him. Any pet owner can feel safe and secure in trusting their beloved pets to his skilled hands.

Molly and Oscar have been patients of Dr. Tullio for several years. I have been very pleased with his care‚ his expertise‚ and his understanding with my two Wheatens. Dr. Tullio has been quick to diagnose any issues and remedy all of the problems we’ve had. I look forward to many more years working with Dr. Tullio. I wish him well in his venture.
When my parents’ dog Kya died very suddenly a few years ago‚ their regular vet was not at work that day. But thankfully‚ Dr. Tullio was and treated my parents and their dog as if he was their doctor for the past 15 years—doing everything he could to try and revive Kya and by being so compassionate to my parents in the waiting room after having to deliver the sad news. We truly can’t say enough nice things about Dr. Tullio and can’t wait for him to open his new facility! Thank you.
