Myth:  A cold, wet nose is good, and a warm, dry nose is bad.  Fact:  An animal's nose changes temperature and moistness all the time throughout the day. The nose being warm and dry is not an indicator of illness or fever, nor does a cold, wet nose definitively mean your pet is healthy. The only way to tell for sure if your pet has a fever is to take their temperature with a thermometer (generally rectally), and have a veterinarian evaluate your pet. #mythbusters #factvsfiction…

We all know that a dog’s sense of smell is better than our own, but do you know just how much better? A recent TED-Ed Lesson gave an excellent explanation of just how a dog’s nose works.

Our dentist Dr. Miles couldn't help but cuddle with Albert Rocky II! This sweet guy is practically a celebrity in our dental department - his snuggle-ability, cute face, and big name endeared him to our staff from the start.

Summer. Is. Here.  Remember that a dog's paws are just as sensitive as our feet to the hot pavement and asphalt that is absolutely everywhere here in Houston. If it's too hot for your feet, it's too hot for their feet! ‪#‎safetyfirst‬ ‪#‎sohot‬ ‪#‎GCVS‬
