We are advising pet owners to keep their animals out of Lady Bird Lake until further notice out of an abundance caution. This is due to the potential presence of a specific algae that could be harmful to animals. Water testing is underway, but will take a few days to complete. When testing is complete, more information will be made available. This is not impacting the City's drinking water.

The city is advising us to stay out of the lake due to toxic algae! With these limitations on swimming and another week of 100+ degree days in the forecast, please be extra cautious when exercising your dogs. I would avoid runs for all dogs, minimize walks for brachycephalics (smush-faced dogs), and be sure to provide plenty of fresh water. Really, best to stay in the AC with some extra snacks and Netflix! 🐢🍿🐾

"Caught my dog on the house camera being a total drama queen..." πŸ˜†πŸΆ

I’m sure none of OUR pets are this spoiled... πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

What could be cuter than these 5-week old Husky babies?! These pups & their mama were rescued from a neglectful living situation and will all be looking for new homes in a few weeks! πŸ’™

The FDA has released an update in their investigation regarding the development of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs being fed boutique, exotic, and grain free diets. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a serious, life-threatening condition that causes an enlarged heart. It has previously been most recognized as a genetic condition developing in middle-aged to older large and giant breed dogs such as Dobermans and Great Danes. More recently, there have been increased reports of DCM occurring in younger dogs and various breeds; all have been fed one of these diets. At this time, I am recommending that all dogs be switched to a high quality, grain-inclusive diet made by a reputable company such as Purina, Royal Canin, Iams, Hills, and Eukanuba. These diets are formulated by board-certified veterinary nutritionists, and undergo extensive testing and food trials to ensure their safety. If you prefer a homemade diet, please consult with a veterinary nutritionist to ensure a safe, balanced recipe for your pet. I would be happy to send you resources for reliable nutritionists. Raw diets have not been shown in any studies to be healthier than conventional diets, yet multiple studies have shown significant risk of food-borne illness to your pet and your family, therefore I do not recommend feeding a raw diet at any time. Research is ongoing to identify the exact link between diet and DCM. I hope that this will allow a safe reformulation of these diets in the future, but until then it is just not worth the risk. If you’re interested in what I feed my own pets, Teddy the Australian Shepherd eats Purina ProPlan Focus chicken & rice, and Sammy the tabby cat eats the Royal Canin SO Urinary prescription diet. Please contact me (or your veterinarian) with any questions or for diet recommendations most appropriate for your pets.
