Montgomery Animal Hospital's veterinarian, Dr. Jaffe, permanently links pets to their owners with a simple microchip-insertion procedure. Widely used by shelters and humane societies, the system swiftly locates runaway pets that have fled homes in search of buried bones or casting calls. During each application, Dr. Jaffe quickly and painlessly implants a grain-size microchip between the shoulder blades of a cat or a dog. The implant lasts a lifetime and, similar to a routine vaccination, requires no anesthetic.

The ultramodern equipment does come in handy, though, as the veterinarians deliver treatments to domestic and exotic pets. Together, they provide vaccinations, dental cleanings, x-rays, spaying and neutering, and surgeries to quell joint pain and bone problems.
The “You Wash” service gives you all the self-washing tools you need to cleanse a canine coat. It includes you choice of shampoo, creme rinse, combs, brushes, towels, use of warm-air dryer, and an all-natural finishing spritzer. The typical canine has excessive mouth slobber, toenail gunks, drain-clogging hair, and a waggy tail that knock all upright things disupright every time you wrestle it into the kiddy pool, Jacuzzi tub, or fine porcelain bathtub, making it hard to give a dog a bath. A dog, when left to his or her own devices, will work up an unconscionable stench, often by rolling in the unconscionable stench which he or she encounters in his or her daily stinkromp. Baths are vital for these cuddlesome critters, and with no purchase limit on today's deal, you can challenge your dog to dirtify itself as often as it likes.
