National Dogs in Politics Day (aka Checkers Day)

Today is celebrated in memory of a famous speech by then-vice presidential nominee Richard Nixon in which he mentioned receiving a black and white dog as a campaign gift, whom he named Checkers.  Take a moment to read about the various White House pets (and even pets who won local office) and appreciate how our furry friends help keep us sane in our politically-charged area!

Halloween

Happy Halloween! Submit photos of your cute, funny, or scary dressed-up pet using #CACPetoftheMonth to enter our monthly giveaway!

Remember to always be careful of costumes that may cause harm to your pet (i.e. choking around the neck, lacerations from being too tight, small items that can be accidentally removed and choked on). Keep Halloween treats far from where your pet can reach them. Monitor pets outside and keep cats indoors if possible to avoid any scary Halloween mischief. And watch the door when you open up for trick-or-treaters to ensure your pet doesn’t sneak out in the excitement!

National Pet Fire Safety Day

Founded in 2009 by the Kennel Club and ADT, today is a special day to make sure you and your family have a plan for your pet's safety when it comes to house fires.  Make sure everyone is aware of when and where to take a pet in case of an emergency.  We also encourage you to apply window clings or other signs outside your home to alert emergency authorities of any pets dwelling inside.

Independence Day - CLINIC CLOSED

We will be closed today in observance of Independence Day.  We will open as scheduled (7:30am) Thursday, July 5th.

If your pet is experiencing an emergency - please go to one of the local 24/7 emergency hospitals for immediate care. For non-emergent issues, our main email (info@clarendonanimalcare.com) will be checked periodically through the day.

Please remember to keep your pet indoors and in a safe & secure location this evening, as many pets are lost this evening due to fear and stress caused by fireworks.  If you are concerned about your pet's stress level during this time, talk to your veterinarian early on about other options to help keep your pet calm and safe.

National Puppy Day

We LOVE puppies at CAC!  While puppies are super cute and there are a ton in need of adopting from your local shelter, remember that they're a lot of work and a big responsibility before using today as a reason to adopt.  If you're thinking of adopting, schedule an appointment so we can go over proper puppy care with you!  And remember to tag #CACPetoftheMonth on social media to share your puppy pics!
