Animal Hospital in Fort Worth Dedicates Weekly Blogs to Pet Safety During Holiday and Winter Months

FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boat Club Road Animal Hospital in Fort Worth is demonstrating its ongoing commitment to keeping pets happy and healthy by focusing on pet safety during the upcoming holidays and winter months. The full-service animal hospital will devote one educational blog per week to addressing safety issues that will help pet owners prevent sickness or injury in their pets. Topics might include holiday pet dangers, traveling with pets, household toxins and poisons, or avoiding pet stress through the winter. Pet owners are also invited to suggest topics about which they would like to receive more information.

Fort Worth veterinarian Dr. John Dedwylder and his staff look forward to the opportunity to educate pet owners and keep pets safe. "Our team of veterinarians has decades of experience in pet health but many pet owners do not realize all the dangers that exist for their pets," he said. "Our pet hospital sees too many pets during this time that are sick or injured due to reasons that could easily have been avoided. That's why we are providing this knowledge in advance so pet owners can think about what they need to do to keep their pets safe."

Dr. Dedwylder is an experienced veterinarian who was honored by Texas Monthly Magazine in 2006 as one of the Top 10 Veterinarians in Texas. He and his fellow veterinarians are committed to fulfilling the vet hospital's mission statement of helping to preserve pet owners' relationships with their pets through complete modern veterinary care and client service. In addition to the educational blogs, the clinic has a web page that provides information on traveling with pets and sponsors Project Pet Slimdown to help pets maintain a healthy weight. Pet owners are invited to communicate with the hospital through social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter to ask about any pet concerns during the coming months.

"Many people get so involved in family activities and holiday celebrations during this time of year that they sometimes forget about looking after their pet's safety," concluded the veterinarian. "Pets can easily become sick or injured, or may even suffer anxiety when their routines are upset. For some, the best solution is a pet boarding facility where they can relax under the care of professionals."

Boat Club Road Animal Hospital is a full-service pet care facility that offers wellness care, animal dental care, pet surgeries in a dedicated surgical suite, an in-house laboratory, and pet boarding at their Resort for Pets at Eagle Mountain Lake located next door.

The veterinary care center is located at 9635 Boat Club Road and serves pets from Ft. Worth, Saginaw, Lake Worth, Haslet, Rhome and the surrounding communities.
