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!

National Cheese Lovers Day

Celebrate one of your furry friend's favorite snacks today!  In moderation and with an understanding of your pet's dietary needs, cheese can be a fun snack.  We even use spray cheese as an extra-special treat for some of our patients as part of our Fear Free initiative!

Dress Up Your Pet Day

Celebrate the annual Dress Up Your Pet Day by tagging us in photos of your pet in the cutest, wackiest, most #cacawesome outfits! You can even double up by entering to win the CAC Pet of the Month contest by tagging your photo with #CACPetofthe Month!

Always remember to keep your fun safe for you and your pet: never place anything tight around your pet's neck, remove all loose tags from items, supervise your pet to ensure that s/he doesn't eat any pieces (like buttons or ribbons), and never force your pet into an outfit that they don't want to wear!
