Hill’s Pet Nutrition recently put out a voluntary recall on their canned food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Although animals benefit from vitamin D, ingesting too much of it can lead to potential health issues. Luckily, in most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of the canned food.

Hill’s is working in coordination with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to get the affected products recalled. As of right now, the recall only extends to canned food and does not apply to dry food, cat food, or other treats.

Dog and cat with toothbrushFebruary is National Pet Dental Health Month which is why we want to educate our clients about the importance of their pet's dental health.

Middlebranch Veterinary would like to extend a huge thank you to all the local artists who displayed and donated their beautiful art work for our first Paws for Art event!

Three kittens and seven puppies/dogs were adopted as a result of the event. Additionally, we also raised over $300 for each organization! We are so happy with the outcome and thankful for your support. A special thank you to the Putnam Humane Society and Happy Life animal Rescue for participating! And last but not least, a huge thank you to Amy Barry for organizing this awesome event.

Please stay tuned for another Paws for Art event in the future!

Thank you for supporting our holiday donation drive!

Protect your petTo better protect your dog against Lyme disease, we are now carrying the newest, most comprehensive vaccine called Vanguard crLyme.

This vaccine is unlike any other on the market, which is why any dog that has been vaccinated against Lyme disease previously will require an initial series of two vaccinations, followed by a yearly booster vaccine.

Please call us today at (845) 278-8000 to schedule your dog's vaccination and ensure your pet gets the best protection available.
