The Importance of Getting CBD Products from a Reputable Source

Dr. O'Brien

When choosing CBD products for your pet, it is important to consider a few important things. Products should contain no THC (will cause toxicity), be full spectrum, and third party testing on the product should be conducted.

Benefits of In-Home Pet Care

Dr. O'Brien

 

At Colorado On-Site Veterinary Services, your animal's comfort and well-being is paramount to us. We bring compassionate care to your animal with detailed medical knowledge and state of the art equipment. Veterinary care is brought right to your door to offer comfort for your animal and convenience for you.

There are quite a few reasons why in-home veterinary care might be right for your animal:

Heartworm Disease in Dogs and Cats

Keeping Your Pets Safe

Dr. O'Brien
Heartworm disease is a preventable, but potentially fatal disease caused by parasitic worms. Heartworm infections are most commonly associated with dogs, but they can infect cats, ferrets, and other wild animals. Heartworm disease is transmitted through mosquitos that deposit larvae. These grow inside the circulatory system of animal and reside in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels.

Equine Infectious Anemia Positive Horse Identified in Colorado

Dr. O'Brien

In May, a positive Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) horse was identified on a Coggins Test.  This is a disease spread through blood (insects, inappropriate needle usage, other contamination) and is not treatable.  It affects horses, donkeys and mules.  We recommend a Coggins Test once per year to screen for this disease and prior to purchasing of new animals.
