There’s nothing worse than a pet emergency, except for those times when a dire situation could have been prevented. When it comes to celebrating a holiday with pets, the focus definitely tends to shift away from the routine toward creating special moments and lasting memories. But, without a conscious and complete nod to Halloween pet safety, all the potential fun and good times can quickly become downgraded by a pet’s holiday-related fear, stress, illness or injury.
Covering All Bases
One of the best defenses against Halloween-related threats is to simply keep your pet away from possible dangers. Keep your pet confined to a comfortable, well-ventilated back room away from the constantly ringing doorbell. You could also crate them during the peak hours of trick-or-treating to keep them from bolting out the door into the night.Continue…
Pet owners like to share all aspects of life with their best friends, but unless skydiving or spelunking becomes safe for pets, we can’t do everything together. Similarly, while it may seem like offering them little bits of our food (or inadvertently making it available) is harmless, this can lead to some pretty big problems.
Fortunately, there’s much we can do to prevent a pet poisoning by knowing which human foods are safe and which are toxic.Continue…
Dr. Tullio has always treated our dogs with great knowledge‚ care‚ and compassion‚ and we have grown to know him quite well. We have been so completely impressed with Dr. Tullio’s consistent excellence in care and services that we wanted to share our experience with others. We are pleased to recommend as the place to go for both quality treatment and compassionate care for your furry family members.
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.

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.
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.
