April is Heartworm Disease Awareness Month. Heartworms are one of the many problems we didn’t have to worry about up here a few years ago, but that has changed. And, it’s not just dogs. Cats can get heartworms too and they need a different type of medicine to prevent it. Please, visit the American Heartworm Society website to learn more about heartworm basics and heartworm prevention....

Alright guys, this is a quick one. Fires are all over the state as I write this – with evacuations. And they move much faster than any of us. Wind clocked in with 107.9mph gust at the bowling alley today. Microchipping is just one of the things you need in your basic toolkit for protecting your pets in this situation.

You always see in the movies people who grew up with their dog they had the puppy as a baby. It’s very nostalgic, even car commercials imply that puppies growing up with kids is the best.

You never know where or how many areas will be hit. Fires move very fast. You can’t plan on having any advance notice if you have to get out, so you need to plan now.

Did you know that there is a vaccine that could save your dog or your horse if they are bitten by a rattlesnake? They will still need medical attention, but it will buy you time to get them to the vet as well as minimizing the damage and treatment they require.

It’s not too early to get your pets vaccinated. Rattlesnakes are most active when it’s between 50 and 80 degrees. As I sit here...

With the dry winter we are facing a very scary fire season. Now more than ever it's important to make sure your animals are micro-chipped and that your current chip is registered properly. If you are at the grocery store or work and a fire breaks out there may not be time to get back to your pets. More realistically the emergency evacuation team will not let you back in to save your an...

We have all read about it, and likely seen it. Now the Colorado Law protects the animals, children and at risk people in hot cars. Take some time to review this House Bill 17-1179.

WMAW will not be breaking windows, but if the animal needs to be surrendered we are able to assist with that.
