Furry Counselors at the Boston Bombings

The recent tragedy at the Boston Marathon can not be overstated. Our support and prayers go out to all the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.  As most of us know, animals are a great support to people when we are in emotional (and physical) need.  Charities are deploying comfort dogs to the victims of the Boston Bombing. The Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort dogs are becoming known as “furry counselors” and are providing emotional support to the victims and their families.

Boston Bombing dogs

Tim Hetzner, president of Lutheran Church Charities, said, “It’s a chance to help bring some relief to people that are shaken up because of the bombings.”

These same dogs helped the Newton victims on December 17th, during Hurricane Sandy and the Joplin, MO tornado.

These wonderful Golden Retrievers are making the rounds to the local hospitals, spending times with the victims to help them through this tragedy.

Heartworm …Heartwon’t

Vet-Co heartworm Its spring time and your dog or cat is more susceptible to heartworms! Why? Because as April showers are bringing May flowers, there is more standing water.  Whether it is because of rain, sprinklers, watering the garden or filling the water features in your yard, standing water means mosquitos and mosquitos are carriers of heartworm.

Did you know that your pet may have heartworm and not show any symptoms? They can be a carrier and you will never know until they are very sick. This is, even more, reason to make sure your pet gets regular heartworm tests.

In getting ready for spring make sure to add Fido and FiFi to the Honey-Do list and bring them into Vet-Co Menaul or Vet-Co Los Lunas for their heartworm test. In fact, we think it is so important that we are offering a great discount!

Print out this coupon and bring it to to get $7 off heartworm tests. We can also help you get Heartgard Heartworm preventative treatment.

Is Your Pet A Tax Write-Off?

pet tax write offIt is tax day…probably everyones least favorite day of the year. But some interesting things you may not know that might help you get a few extra tax write-offs.

There are some ways you can use your pet as a tax write off. Do you own your own business? If you have a cat that takes care of the mice around your office then your cat, the food and vet bill can all be considered a tax write off.

Do you have a dog guarding your business property? Then he is preforming a job and can be written off! Of course if you are claiming that your dog is a guard dog the IRS will want to know what the breed is. So that little playful Chihuahua won’t count. It will need to be a big breed such as a German Shepherd or Doberman.

If you have a dog for medical reasons, ie. seeing eye dog. You can write off their expenses and this includes, vaccinations, kennel fees and pet supplies. The only part you can’t write off is buying the dog itself, go figure.

Do you like to foster animals? Being a foster pet owner is also a tax deduction. There are so many animals that need homes and helping out non-profits by fostering animals can give you an extra help on your taxes this year!

So if you have a pet that you think you might be able to use as a write-off go ask a tax professional.
