Alison’s Tip

Very commonly pets get nervous in the veterinary hospital and may show signs of aggression towards the nurses and veterinarian. They may be the never show a sign of aggression at home or outside of the veterinary hospital.  Pets protect themselves with their teeth and when placed in a vulnerable position, it is natural instinct to act this way.  We see this ALL THE TIME and it is nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed by. Please make your veterinarian and staff is aware if your pet has a history of biting or being aggressive at the veterinary hospital.  We are trained to handle this and can make sure everyone is safe and comfortable, while most importantly placing your pet at ease.

Head Lice!!! We all fear the day our child comes home with a notice that there has been a reported case of head lice in the class. Here are some helpful tips to help prevent your child from getting head lice.

  1. Make sure all girls wear their hair pulled back in a pony tail or braid.
  2. If there is a reported case of head lice, try hair gel or hair spray in your child hairs. It helps to prevent the lice from attaching to the shaft of the hair.
  3. Try putting 5-6 drops of tea tree oil in your child’s shampoo bottle. You can also try lavender oil or rosemary oil. Lavender oil is a natural repellent for head lice. It has also been shown to help kill head lice in combination with prescription shampoo.
  4. If you think you child has head lice immediately take them to their pediatrician for treatment shampoo.

I had to share this really amazing tip that I just tried for the first time! I always dread cleaning out the microwave. I don’t know why, it’s just one of those things that seems like a big task. Well, I found this tip online and tried it. It really does work! The lemon some how makes all that grime and grease on the walls wipe away so quickly. I also never have liked spraying chemicals on such a closed in area so this is a perfect alternative. Enjoy!
