Introducing the newest member of our Reception Team - Jalyn Ferguson! Check out her Employee Spotlight below.
Heartworm is a disease that can be potentially deadly, leave lasting heart damage, and is much easier, safer, and less costly to prevent that it is to cure.
In today's modern world, smartphones and apps play a huge role in daily life. Schmitt's Animal Hospital is excited to introduce our very own app to make caring for your pets infinitely easier!
Independence Day is quickly approaching. If your dog or cat reacts fearfully to fireworks and loud noises it is best to start preparing for the celebrations ahead of time. Having a plan of action can greatly decrease the stress associated with the 4th of July for both you and your pet.
We are excited to welcome Caitie as the newest member of our front desk staff! Here is her Employee Spotlight so that everyone can get to know her better!
Where would we be without our amazing front desk staff? In big trouble! In honor of Administrative Professionals' Day, Schmitt's Animal Hospital would like to take a moment to recognize and honor these hard working ladies that keep us running smoothly on a day-to-day basis. They are the link between our clients and patients to the medical care we are so grateful to be able to provide to the pets of the Grand Rapids area. They play such a tremendous role in keeping our patients healthy and helping us provide the best client experience that we strive for. While we appreciate them every day of the year, today is an extra opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to each of them for their hard work and dedication!
Any member of our staff will tell you that helping bring new babies into the world makes for a good day on the job. Here are some pictures from a caesarean section we did last fall on an American Bully named Manga.
We get asked constantly why we recommend different aspects of preventative care for your pets. This month we will focus on why it is important to check annual fecal samples.
The turkey is in the oven, the halls are decked and the gifts are wrapped, but do you know where the cat is? With all the excitement of the holidays, sometimes we can lose track of our four-legged family members, only to find the cats chewing on the décor or the dog eating through the kitchen garbage after a family feast. Follow the holiday pet safety tips from our Veterinarians below all season long.
Bones can cause quite a predicament for pet owners. On one hand, they can provide entertainment and fun. But they can also crack or break teeth, damage the enamel on teeth, splinter and break causing mouth injury and/or GI irritation, become a choking hazard, and as Rylee found out the hard way - even get stuck around a dog's mouth.
