Supplemental reading: For more information on your pets’ illness or condition we refer clients to VeterinaryPartners.com.
Poison Control: In case of emergency toxin ingestion we refer to ASPCA Poison Control Hotline at (888) 426-4435 or www.aspca.org. Please be prepared with a major credit card as there is a $60.00 fee for this service. If your pet has a Home Again Microchip Identification and is registered there is no fee.
Professional Organizations: The Rhode Island Veterinary Medical Association website has great information about the pet industry in general. You can find information about Animal and Public Health, Rhode Island Shelters and estimated costs for owning a pet.
Pet Insurance: We recommend pet insurance to all of our clients. We do not recommend any specific insurance company but can direct you to several reputable pet insurance carriers and their websites. Two examples are VPI or ASPCA.
Grief Counseling and Support: When you have lost a beloved pet and are feeling emotionally overwhelmed there are support services available. We refer our clients to www.tufts.edu/vet/petloss/links.html where you can find many helpful links.
Obedience Training: We always recommend obedience training for all of our new puppies. Sometimes we may incorporate obedience training into behavioral modification programs for our older patients. We recommend several options including Canine Mastery in Seekonk MA. We also recommend Bark Busters for in-home training.
Kenneling Your Pet: If you are planning to travel and need a boarding kennel recommendation, please call our office and we can advise you. If you are planning to travel with your pet we recommend bringfido.com as a resource for hotels that accommodate pets. The website is beneficial for all things travel related, when bringing along your pet.
