17 Jul Flashback Friday – Lynn Valley Seniors Association Visit
Flashback Friday to when COVID-19 was a thing of the future! Staff pet, Sasha, accompanied by her friend and Manager at Mountainside Animal Hospital to be a guest speaker at Lynn Valley Seniors Association.
Marla interpreted for Sasha and provided some education to the group of Seniors about the wide range of diagnostics and treatments available for pets these days and what Mountainside has to offer.
She reviewed some common ailments of cats and dogs; discussed some signs to watch out for; the value of pet insurance; common toxicities around the house; and stressed the importance of prevention with regular check-ups and vaccines.
A bus tour of Mountainside was scheduled as a follow-up and the Lynn Valley Seniors Association made a very generous donation to a charity of our choice.
We decided to put that donation towards a brilliant organization that we support and help provide veterinary care for called ElderDog Canada.
This group matches older dogs who have lost their homes for a variety of reasons with elderly people looking for an older companion.
A win-win situation for all!
