Laser therapy: A promising trend in veterinary medicine

Jen Reeder

Denver resident, Sue Kohut, was alarmed when her Great Dane puppy, Beauxmont, became lethargic and developed swollen legs that were hot to the touch. At just five months old, the pup was diagnosed with hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD), a painful bone disease that can occur in fast-growing large and giant breeds. Read more

Holiday season safety for pets

Dr. Garver and the staff at Kindness Animal Clinic want this holiday season to be a fun and safe time for you and your pet and not something that turns into an emergency visit to the veterinarian. Some of the decorations we use, the holiday plants we buy, and the food we make can be hazardous to our pets. Below is a list of the most common holiday hazards. If your pet comes into contact with any of these, let us know immediately.

From dvm360

Poisonous Plants









Chocolate, especially dark chocolate

Uncooked meat and bones

Uncooked yeast dough

Grapes and raisins

Macadamia nuts

Xylitol (artificial sweetener)



Other hazards

Electrical cords

Glass ornaments


Gift ribbon/string


Batteries for toys

Needles from the Christmas tree


STRING CAN KILL! Especially with cats - if eaten, string, thread, ribbon, tinsel, yarn, etc can cause life-threatening intestinal issues.

  • Never have string where your cat can get it.
  • Never leave your cat alone with toys that have string or yarn. If you suspect your cat has swallowed string, call us immediately.
  • Never pull a string dangling from your cat's mouth or anus.
  • If you see this, call us immediately.

If you are expecting a lot of visitors or are having a holiday party, your pet may become very stressed or nervous. Make sure they have access to a quiet room away from the noise and people where they can go to be alone or you may think about boarding them for a short time.  If you have a new puppy,try and teach them some basic obedience before people come over – commands like sit, stay, off, and leave it will be very helpful. 

Lastly, make sure your pet has some sort of identification in case they get loose. It is best to have both a collar with your information on it as well as something permanent, like a microchip. As always, make sure you have updated your contact information with your pet's chip.

From the staff at Kindness Animal Clinic - have a safe and happy holiday with your pets!
