Doctors and staff enjoyed a night of fun, (hospital) family and food at West Milford Thai recently, as they gathered to celebrate each other and everything that makes GWLAH great!
Parties are enjoyable, but between conversation, watching the big game and having a few drinks, it's easy to lose track of your pet's whereabouts. As you make your plans for game night, it's important to consider your pet's safety and well-being.
Don't tempt fate: The temptation of party foods may be too great for some pets. Look into alternative arrangements before agreeing to host or consider leaving your pet at home if attending.
Minimize fumbles: Pets may decide to run smart, aggressive plays if begging doesn't work, so encourage guests to use snack trays or sit at a table to minimize dropped food.
Go for the extra point: Keep treats on hand for pets with snack-starved eyes.
Oversee like a referee: Never leave plates and cups unattended, as they are tempting to pets, and be sure to clean up promptly, as sufficiently-motivated pets will find a way even if blocked at the line of scrimmage.
Call a time out: Noisy crowds can make pets nervous so provide them with a quiet space, away from the party, where they can decompress if needed.
Dr. Jyothi Surendran, of the Animal Dermatology Clinic in Wayne, will be discussing the most common pet dermatological issues and how to solve them during the second installment of our pet parent lecture series at the West Milford Township Library!
Allergies are one of the few diseases pets can't easily hide because symptoms drive both the pet and the pet parent crazy! Come join us and give yourself the gift of knowledge and your pet the gift of being comfortable in their own skin!
Born and raised in India, Dr. Surendran has always loved animals. She received advanced clinical training at Louisiana State University's School of Veterinary Medicine, after earning her veterinary degree with distinguished honors from College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences in Kerala, India.
As always, this event is free but space is limited so please RSVP to reserve your seat!
