Gearing Up for Outdoor Fun With Your Pet
It’s starting to feel like spring, and for those who love to hike, camp, and enjoy Mother Nature, the anticipation of summer is building. Many pet parents, especially those with dogs, also enjoy recreating outdoors with their best four-legged friends. After all, it’s not quite a camping trip without Rover!
To make the most of outdoor fun with your pet, it’s important to plan carefully before you hit the trails.
Before You Head Out
Much like packing for our own camping or hiking trips, your pet will require equal or more consideration. First of all, nature is wild, and where there’s wild, there’s wildlife – in the form of mammals, reptiles, birds, and, of course, parasites.
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.

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.
