May 20,2015 -- Tick experiment
Dr. Martorana wanted to share this interesting article showing just how, in a short amount of time, you and your pets can become unwitting carriers of hungry ticks looking for their next meal. This article is eye opening and a bit scary when you think about it. Please check it out.
March 25, 2015 -- Spring time
We know it's hard to think about spring when there is still snow on the ground and it's still this cold, but don't forget your pet's flea and tick prevention. You should start now so you are prepared when the weather does turn around.
March 17, 2015 -- Rabies in Madison County
An important note to clients of the Hamilton Animal Hospital. March 2015 has unfortunately brought us some positive cases of rabies in our local Hamilton area. There have so far been 2 reported cases, one involving a cat and the other a cow. Both animals were from the Hamilton-Lebanon area and tested positive for the disease. Rabies has no cure and can be transmitted to people through the saliva or bite from an infected animal. Vaccination is the only way to prevent rabies. Please be sure your pet's rabies vaccination is up to date. Any questions about rabies please give us a call.
We have rabies vaccination clinics every Saturday from 9 - noon, no appointment needed. Please bring any prior rabies vaccination paperwork you have.

March 13, 2015 -- Frontline for dogs
With the addition of so many new products for flea and tick prevention for dogs, and also with certain products becoming available over-the-counter, the decision was made not to stock canine Frontline in-hospital. We will still carry Frontline for cats. Dog sizes of Frontline will be available for purchase from our online pharmacy with convenient home delivery. Please let us know if you have any questions or need assistance with an online purchase from our pharmacy.
