Tech Tips

    Obtaining Towels
    Our boarding and grooming services require many bath and hand towels, so we posted a sign asking clients to donate old towels. Our clients are happy to do this, allowing us to recycle towels instead of buying new ones. If we have extra towels, we donate them to the local animal shelter.

    Storing Radiation Badges
    We clip our radiation badges to a strip of 3-inch bandaging tape that is folded in half and pinned to the wall right outside our x-ray room. This simple setup keeps the badges visible, organized, and easily accessible.

    Saving for Health Care
    We advise our new puppy/kitten owners to open a health care savings account for their new pets. In a tough economy, emergency funds can help patients, clients, and veterinary hospitals. The money from one or two fewer lattes per week can become a lifesaver in an emergency!
