Thanksgiving Hours


We want everyone to have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

We will be closed on Thanksgiving and on Black Friday. Normal hours will resume on Saturday the 26th.

We encourage you to read our blog about pet safety during the Thanksgiving holiday, so hopefully you have no reason to visit a vet over the holiday. Stay safe and have a great holiday weekend.

Pet Safety for Thanksgiving

Albuquerque Pet Thanksgiving

Albuquerque Pet ThanksgivingThis is something we talk about every year, but it is worth revisiting. Thanksgiving is filled with yummy food, good friends and family and great times! It is even pretty fun for our pets. They get to play with kids, get attention from family and get leftovers. It is the leftovers that cause a problem. There are a lot of foods that are bad for pets and can make them very sick. When giving your pets some Thanksgiving treats, make sure to keep them away from the ones that might be troublesome.

Keep your pets away from:

  • Turkey bones – they can choke on them
  • Raw Turkey – raw or undercooked turkey meat can have salmonella
  • Onions, Garlic, Chives – may cause gastrointestinal upset.
  • Chocolate – this can cause vomiting and diarrhea
  • Xylitol – this artificial sweetener can be deadly to pets
  • Raw and/or yeast dough – it can cause bloating and gas, and can be hard to pass.  Also dough can contain raw eggs which can contain salmonella.
  • Raisins – sometimes this is in the stuffing. They have been known to cause kidney failure.

If your pet becomes excessively thirsty, has difficulty peeing, is vomiting, has diarrhea, is lethargic, or is displaying any other behaviors that are out of the ordinary we suggest calling your vet immediately.

A great idea for your pets for Thanksgiving is to prepare them a special meal that is safe for them to eat but still filled with Thanksgiving yumminess!
