Blue Valley Animal Hospital’s Top Blogs of 2020!
While 2020 has been… unpredictable, we have been able to reliably count on two things: the final page of the calendar will turn to 2021, and the boundless love of our fuzzy little weirdos will see us through whatever may come.
Indeed, our pets have been steadfast in their support this past year just as the team at Blue Valley Animal Hospital has been steadfast in our commitment to your pets’ health and well-being through all the ups and downs.
As you know, part of our ongoing commitment to you and your pets’ health and happiness is our blog. And, as we do every year, we are excited to celebrate the date change with our annual top blogs list! Hopefully you enjoy a look back at our most-read blogs of 2020!
Our Top Pet Blogs of 2020!
#5 MAKING YOUR SKIN CRAWL: COMMON PET SKIN PROBLEMS AND THEIR CAUSES
You might think that besides annual wellness visits, the next most common reason that pets visit us at Blue Valley Animal Hospital is to say hello to our wonderful team! While we wish that were the case, unfortunately we see pets for a lot of other reasons – dermatologic issues being one of the top motivations for a trip to the vet.
#4 DELICIOUS BUT SAFE? HOLIDAY FOOD SAFETY FOR PETS
The holidays are here, and for many of us, that means cozying up in the kitchen with our favorite recipes to share. Holiday tables and meals often mean family, and with 70% of pet owners considering pets a part of the family, sharing our favorite foods with them is the next logical step. But it this safe?
#3 WHAT EVERY CAT OWNER SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FIV AND FELV
When looking for the right cat to bring home, finding one with a clean bill of health can be a top priority. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Infection (FELV) are cat-only diseases that can thwart a possible connection and adoption. However, the more prospective cat owners know about FIV and FELV, adoptions of these deserving cats can become more common.
#2 5 THINGS YOUR CAT WISHES YOU KNEW
Ah cats. They alternate between affectionate and aloof, independent, and needy. It can take months or even years for a cat and owner relationship to develop understanding and mutual respect. Trying to guess what your cat friend is telling you is only one part of this puzzle.
#1 MY CAT LOVES CHEESE! GET THE FACTS ABOUT CATS AND CHEESE
The image of a furry feline lapping up a bowl of milk is a common and widely accepted one. Some of us may even have grown up with Garfield going wild over a pan of lasagna. But can cats eat cheese? More specifically, should you be feeding them cheese?
From all of us at Blue Valley Animal Hospital, Happy New Year!
