New Products in our Online Store!

Grantsburg Animal Hospital is committed to providing your pet with the latest care--and sometimes that even includes pet toys, treats and technology! We have just added a variety of new products to our online store including the Soft Quick Lift, the Halti Harness, many different Kong Toys and Royal Canin food.

   The Soft Quick Lift is a great product for your pet if they are undergoing any type of physical therapy. The harness allows you to aid your pet in standing, so they are not putting their full weight on any injured area. They will then be able to fully recover from any injury.

   If you’re still working on training your dog, this next item is for you! The Halti Harness straps around your dog and keeps him or her from pulling by controlling the dog from their chest and shoulders. The Halti Harness is available in a variety of sizes, making it possible to use for training any dog!

   We have five new great Kong toys available in our online store now as well. Check out the Wubba, the Puppy Wubba, the Kickeroo, the Incline Scratcher and the Grappler Teaser. All of these toys are great for stuffing with treats. Your pet will be kept busy and happy playing with the toy and coming up with different strategies to get to the treats.

     We now offer Royal Canin Vegetarian canned and dry food and Satiety Support canned and dry food for your pet. Royal Canin believes in feeding your pet healthy food that will keep them feeling their best. The Satiety Support food we now offer can help aid your pet in avoiding and managing pet obesity.

No matter what your pet needs in health and in play, we’re here to ensure your pet is always feeling their best!

   Check out all of the new additions in our store today.

Choosing the right dog food can seem like a pretty big task when you look down the pet food aisle. The options seem endless, and how do you know what is right for your pooch? There are a few things you can do to narrow the options. 
 
Choose by age. A growing dog will have different nutritional needs than a small or senior dog.  
 
Activity level. The more your dog exercises, the more food she will need to consume to stay healthy. 
 
Health considerations. A sick dog has different nutritional needs than a healthy one. 
 
Consult with us. Finding the right food for your dog's age and health is just the beginning. We can also help you figure out the right portions to feed your dog. Together, we can keep your pup healthy and trim!

Myths and Facts about Spaying and Neutering

When it comes to spaying and neutering your pet, there's many myths out there. That's not to say that everything you've heard isn't true. Let us break it down for you and explain the top 5 myths of spaying and neutering your pet.

Myth 1: It's expensive. There are many low-cost options for spaying/neutering. In fact, we offer very low-cost spaying/neutering options.

Myth 2: You'll find homes for all of your newborn puppies/kitties. Sure, maybe you will find a place for each of them to live. However, you can't control what happens once they are in those new homes. What if they aren't a good fit? What if there are unknown allergies? What if they can't afford to properly care for the new pet? You are only able to control what happens to your own pet in your own home. 

Myth 3: It's healthier for my female to have her first litter before I spay her. This is false. Evidence stated by HumaneSociety.org states that it's actually easier on her body and overall health if she is spayed before her first heat.

Myth 4: Spaying/neutering will change my pet's behavior. If there are any changes, they'll be positive! Your pet will be less aggressive, less distracted and less frustrated. It will no longer be fighting it's natural urge to mate.

Myth 5: My pet will become fat. Spaying/neutering plays no role in the weight of your pet. Fitness/diet does. Just continue to feed your pet proper proportions and keep them active and you will not have to worry about them becoming overweight.
