Read this before you fly with your pet
Air travel can be stressful for even the most frequent fliers. Imagine how overwhelming it may be to your pet! First things first, consider if flying is the best option for your pet. He or she may feel more comfortable on the road in a familiar vehicle without the sensory overload and change accompanying the airport experience. Also, if friends or other family members aren’t available to watch your furry family member, ask us for recommendations on professional pet-sitters and boarding.

If you must fly:
  • Check in with us. Many airlines request documentation, including recent vaccinations. Review your airline’s specific requirements. We’ll talk through considerations such as hydration and address all concerns.
  • If your pet is traveling by carrier, make sure it’s airline-approved. Many airlines show images of approved containers and provide specifics on crates, much as they do carry-on luggage. The carrier should always be well-labeled, especially if your pet must travel as cargo.
Airport amenities can make all the difference for your pet. Check for airport relief stations, pee patches, or even grassy areas and playrooms. Sometimes security facilities take pet passengers into account by offering animal inspection rooms that provide some relief for frightened and stressed-out pets.
Nutritional Requirements Of Your Pets
Providing wholesome food is one of the most important ways to help your pet stay well and live a long time. Bloomfield Animal Hospital offers high-quality dry and canned foods, vitamins, and supplements to keep your pet healthy and active for many years. Our veterinarians also provide nutritional counseling such as the following tips.

The vital role of fresh water in pet diets is often overlooked. An animal should have about two and a half times as much water as food each day. It is best to be sure your pet has access to clean, cool water at all times.

Shawnee K (May 2017)

"I can't speak highly enough of the staff and experience we had earlier today at Bloomfield. We made the costly mistake of going elsewhere first and received subpar service and even less information regarding emergency liver issues our adored family cat is experiencing.

Hannah and Diva were not only compassionate and knowledgeable but they went above and beyond to make sure all of my questions were answered and I was completely comfortable administering several different medications.

They even stayed after hours to go over the different payment options available to me. From now on I will always recommend Bloomfield and will never take our pets anywhere else. This experience was a bright spot in an extremely gloomy time for our family.Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! "
