Euthanasia is something no pet parent wants to think about, let alone ever be ready for. The final journey in your pet's life has been known to typically happen in a Veterinary hospital, but more and more pet parents are learning that the euthanasia process can take place in the comfort of their own home. Please give us a call and let us know if you'd like more information. We have multiple resources for pet hospice and home euthanasia care.

De-skunking your dog

We share our neighborhoods with skunks which oftentimes come into contact with dogs. Check out this helpful article about what to do if your dog gets sprayed by a skunk! Please also remember that skunks are a vital part of our environment and they deserve to be in our gardens and yards!

https://www.humanesociety.org/resources/de-skunking-your-dog

Skunks are everywhere--in the country and in the city--and if your dog gets sprayed, there are ways you can rid him of the scent without using your entire ketchup (or tomato juice) supply to do it.

Got a cat who is hard to keep indoors? Try using a bird safe cat collar! The bright colors on your kitty are very visible to wild birds and it helps them notice your kitty a lot easier. Also place bells on your kitty collar that even jingle when your kitty thinks they're being sneaky! Outdoor kitties are a huge problem to wildlife, especially birds. #birdcollar #wildlife #petsafety #songbirds

Lost Cat :: Buster -- orange tabby

Hello! We really could use your help in finding a very sweet kitty named Buster. He is a neutered 9 year old orange tabby. Buster was lost this morning around 9:00AM around the hospital at the intersection of MacArthur Blvd and Boston Ave. He was last seen on the west side of Boston Ave between Palmetto St and MacArthur Blvd. He was jumping over a fence between backyards. Buster is a strictly indoor kitty so will be very anxious being outside. He may be hiding under a bush, under a porch or another area where he can feel safe. We appreciate any help you can offer.. Thank you! (510) 530-1373

"Like us, our animal family experiences physical and behavioral changes throughout life. Inflammation, coldness, over-excitement, depression, anxiety, weakness or injury happens. Whether acute or chronic situations, the ancient Chinese Medicine system of the Five Forces of Nature tracks and offers re-balancing solutions to restore healthy well-being. It is a preventative and restorative health system. Each of the Five Forces represent different parts – Wood (Liver), Fire (Heart), Earth (Stomach), Metal (Lung) and Water (Kidney). Each of these plays out in everyday life."

Pets show signs of allergies in several different ways. Here are some possible signs your animal friend may have allergies:

Most common itching in one area or all over the body. This itching can lead to:
Β· Hair loss
Β· Red, inflamed or infected skin (this includes β€œhot spots”)
Β· Head shaking or scratching at the ears
Β· Rubbing face against furniture or carpet
Β· Scratching, licking or chewing paws or other areas of the body

Less common symptoms can include: coughing, sneezing or wheezing (sometimes accompanied by runny eyes or nose)

Seasonal allergies are a nuisance for sure; however, they can be more than that. They can lead to serious and painful secondary health problems like skin or ear infections. If you see your any of these signs, please give us a call.

We are here and ready to partner with you in your animal family’s wellness!

With fireworks and loud noises already in the air, here's a great article with some great tips on how to support your pet during this stressful time!

To a dog, fireworks are terrifying. Their survival instinct makes them naturally afraid of loud noises not to mention bright, erratic, explosions in the sky. So we recommend trying some of the following tips to make firework season less stressful for your dog.

06/16/2021

Proper grooming and care of pets with longer fur is very important, especially if they're enjoying the great outdoors! Long unkempt fur can become severely matted and house things like foxtails and other sharp plant material. In addition, matted fur pulls on the pet's skin, causing much discomfort. Have long fur pets groomed regularly, especially around the face, ears, feet, belly and tail. They'll sure thank you for it! πŸ’™πŸΎπŸΆβ˜―οΈπŸ’ˆ

I'm looking forward to bringing my standard poodle Vani to see Dr. Luna tomorrow. I've heard a lot of great things about Creature Comforts for many years. With our vet of 20 years retiring, now is the time to switch.
Hey lovely Creature Comfort folks, congratulations on making it to the finals in several categories for Bay Woof's "Beast of the Bay" Awards! I just voted for you for Best Veterinarian, Best Veterinary Clinic, and Best Alternative Medicine Provider. Keep up the great work! And if you're feeling it, please vote for Doggy Lama Pet Care for Best Dog Walker, East Bay.
Please keep an eye out for my dog Luna.
Happy Holidays to the Creature Comfort crew and thanks to Dr. McCaughan and RVTs for all your sweet bedside manner with Billie the Kid recently. She survived the dreaded cone!
Thank you to all the wonderful ladies at Creature Comfort Holistic Veterinary. Dr. Ashley is awesome and I feel confident that my boy Leo will be with me for a little longer in the best of health. We both felt very much at home and taken care of. He was sad to leave all of you. 😍
