NEWS YOU CAN USE

Fleas and Ticks are Scary!!

Fleas and ticks can be scary and a flea infestation in your home is even scarier!  To prevent fleas and ticks on your pet, it is important to use protection all year.  Your pet can pick up fleas from squirrels, rabbits and other fun things to chase in the yard and once the fleas are on your pet, they will go with your pet EVERYWHERE, including in the house.  Fleas LOVE to lay eggs in the grass, on your pet, in the carpet and on furniture and beds.  It takes 3-4 months of flea and tick protection as well as constant cleaning, vacuuming and application of a flea life cycle disrupter to totally get rid of the pests.  Gracie, Ruger, Odin, Frasier and Dolly all recommend using either an oral or topical flea and tick prevention year round to avoid a nasty problem.

New pet addition? We can help!!

Do you have a new puppy or kitten at your house?  The first year is very important for the health and development of your new pet.  We can answer questions on training, deworming and vaccination programs.  Kittens can receive their initial feline distemper and feline leukemia vaccines starting at 6 weeks; these vaccines will need to be boostered in three weeks.  Puppies can recieve their initial canine distemper combination vaccines starting at 6 weeks as well.  It is very important for puppies to receive their booster vaccines for full protections against the lepto and parvo viruses.  Both kittens and puppies can recieve their rabies vaccine at 12 weeks of age. 

Accidents Happen....

Hi!  I am Stewart and I had a little accident while being a bit naughty.  Dr. Litke and his staff helped me get back on my feet!  Litke's Veterinary Service has an x-ray suite to diagnose broken bones or soft tissue injuries.  Dr. Litke, Dr. Wehseler and Dr. Steffens also consult with Dr. Severaid of Twin Cities Radiology to aid in diagnosis.  Dr. Cal Kobluk has also done orthopedic surgeries in clinic as well.

Special Delivery!

New born calves need a little extra care, especially if Mother Nature is playing nasty tricks!   We carry electrolytes, oral calf feeders, colostrum replacers, and vitamin supplements for all your calving supply needs.  Our knowledgeable staff can help you come up with a vaccine protocol for both cows and calves to help you get the most out of your cattle.  

Pet Identification

It is so enjoyable to spend time with our pets on walks, camping trips or other adventures.  Having a current picture of your pet, keeping the current rabies or license tag on their collar  and having your pet microchipped all help identify  your pet in case you get separated on an adventure.  Always keep your dog on a leash to avoid confrontations with other dogs and to prevent runaways.
