Many people take extra precautions in the summer to protect their family from heat stroke, sunburn, and dehydration, but animals can sometimes be overlooked.

Child and Dog National Dog Bite Prevention Week Utah Veterinarian We love our dogs and our pets are an important part of our family.  Dogs can be tremendous companions for children as many of us have wonderful memories of a beloved dog that kept us company during childhood.   However, dogs can bite when threatened, injured or when protecting their territory or their family.  To remind us of this, May 17th-23rd has been declared National Dog Bite Prevention Week.  Research shows that children are the most common victims of dog bites with dog bites ranking #11 among the most common nonfatal injury among children up to age four.   Here are some tips for preventing dog bites:
  1.  Make sure that you socialize your new puppy with other dogs and humans.
  2.  Train your dog and seek outside assistance if you need help.  Call Utah Redwood Veterinary at 801-966-3974 or email us at if you need one of veterinarians to give you a referral to dog trainers in the Salt Lake City area to help with a new pet or an overly aggressive dog.

Wanted: Dog Blood Donors

Hero DogsWe need help finding heroes! Have you ever wondered what would happen if your dog needed a blood transfusion? What if he or she gets into rat poison or gets hit by a car and needs blood?

Canine Blood Heroes is coming to Advanced Veterinary Care (AVC) in Salt Lake City. Canine Blood Heroes is a canine blood service that finds eligible dogs to act as blood donors. We are excited that Salt Lake City veterinarians will have a reliable source of canine blood for transfusions.

It can be a real challenge to find blood in an emergency situation - this program is designed to help with that challenge. AVC will serve as a central location for collection and storage, and local vets will be able to purchase units of blood when needed for their own clinics.
