Wednesday, March 21 2018 Southern California weather can promote the life cycle of many biting insects regardless of the time of year. Insects such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are not just a nuisance. They can cause harmful diseases such as heartworm, Lyme disease, Erlichiosis, Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, anemia, Cat Scratch fever, and tapeworm infection. Parasites can also transfer some of these diseases to people. We recommend year-round parasite protection for all pets including ones who live mostly or exclusively indoors since vectors can find their way or be tracked into the home.

Thursday, November 19 2015 Get into the spirit of giving with Casey's Toy Drive and our Kong Program. Casey's Toy Drive benefits Mattel Children's hospital at UCLA and was founded in 2009. This year, we are a drop-off location for this wonderful drive. Casey is from Moorpark who suffers from a very rare and incurable intestinal disease. He is dependent on IV nutrition that is administered every night through a permanent IV in his chest. Casey has been a patient at Mattel Children's Hospital since he was a year old and he has developed a very special bond with the nurses, doctors, and staff. Casey's mission is to bring toys to the kids at Mattel Children's Hospital to make their holidays and hard times a little brighter. The toys that Casey collects from friends, family, and the community are used year round for patients that stay in the hospital, that have outpatient surgeries, and that have scary procedures or infusions in the clinic setting. Casey will be accepting donations now through December 20th. Toys must be new and unwrapped due to strict infection control guidelines. Gift cards are also accepted. You can find out more information including a want list on Casey's Facebook page, Casey's Crew. Casey will deliver the donations to the hospital during the week of December 21, 2015.
