Out in the Community
Dr. Crosier, Heather, and daughter Alexa attended the Paws for People Wag N Walk at Glasgow Park on October 20th. This was a dog friendly event incorporating a 5K run, dog walk, and dog costume contest, all to benefit the programming supported by Paws for People. For those not familiar with Paws for People, be sure to check out their website http://www.pawsforpeople.org/
Dr. Crosier hosted Boy Scout Pack 125 at the practice in late October. We highlighted a variety of parasites and how they can affect our pets. The boys picked up some fun facts and will be ready to identify some ticks on their next outdoor adventure.
In the Hospital
The Middletown Chamber of Commerce helped us to celebrate our grand opening by performing our ribbon cutting ceremony on October 23rd. We enjoyed the support of our family, clients and many MOT community members. The CAVA team is eager to engage and support the MOT community.
We are lucky to have such a great team working with us. All of our support staff is cross trained to excel in a variety of roles including client services, patient care, and numerous technical services. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have a question or concerns; they are always happy to provide assistance. For those of you with nervous or anxious dogs that are a bit reserved about coming to see us, we encourage you to stop by anytime for a friendly treat filled visit.
Congratulations to Candy Barone for winning our Candy Corn guessing game contest last month. She secured a $25 CAVA gift certificate with her guess of 460 candy corn. For those of you that entered the contest and are wondering how close you were, there were 463 candy corn in the jar.
Holiday Gatherings and Travel
With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, please don’t forget to consider the safety and comfort of your pets. Household guests and holiday travel can provide a source of stress for our canine and feline companions. When traveling with your pet always make sure that they are well secured within the vehicle and plan to stop for frequent bathroom breaks. If your pet suffers from anxiety or nausea in the car, there are a variety of medications that we can recommend to help reduce those symptoms. Always remember to carry proper vaccine documentation, pet photos, as well as extra supplies and medications with you. If traveling by air, check with the airline for specific guidelines and don’t forget to obtain a health certificate for your pet.

The Best Way to Show Thanks this
Season is with an Annual Checkup…
Call Us and Schedule an Appointment Today!
All pets come with special care instructions. Feed daily, love forever and yearly checkups. We know you have the first two covered, but what about the last one? Yearly checkups are equally as important! They are essential to your furry friend’s happiness and well-being. They are the best way to keep your pet healthier, longer!
During our veterinarian’s physical exam, your pet gets checked from tongue to teeth to toes to tail. (Plus all the parts in between!) Our in-depth, medical checkup not only assesses your pet’s current health status, but also helps to prevent future problems, such as obesity, periodontal disease and diabetes. At this time, it also provides us with the opportunity to discuss all the ways to keep your pal in good shape and to answer your questions. We can cover any topic you want in the comfort of our exam room.
Yes, all pets do come with special care instructions:
Feed daily (but not from the Thanksgiving dinner table)
Love forever (you do that the best!)
Yearly checkups (we’re here to ensure your pet stays healthy!)
We’re grateful for your trust in us to recommend what’s best for your pet. Call us to make an appointment for your pet’s yearly checkup. Your pet will be thankful too.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us!
