iStock_000009884821_SmallSome pets like to live a little dangerously. No matter what you do, it seems that these daredevils are not happy to be confined to your property. While a little adventure can be good from time to time, it can also be a dangerous indulgence for pets who are not supervised.

If you have a pet that regularly escapes your yard, it is important to take steps to prevent and discourage that behavior. Your pet is safest at home, or at least under your direct supervision. Here are a few tips on how to control pet escape

Billings Animal Family Hospital Open House

SoCuteThis Saturday, June 7, Billings Animal Family Hospital will be holding its annual open house from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.! We hope you will come say hi, meet our amazing staff of veterinarians, technicians, and service staff, and take a tour of our beautiful facility.

As you may know, we’ve gotten quite a bit of new equipment and done some remodeling over the past year, making Billings Animal Family Hospital one of the most tech savvy veterinary practices in the Billings area.

We’d love for you to come see what we can offer you and your pet, and how our new equipment can benefit your pet’s health and wellness care.

In addition to exploring all we have to offer in our newly updated practice, we’ll also have local vendors on-site, including Marty Golden from Big Sky Dog Training, Tony Barone from Bark Busters Dog Training, and the Invisible Fence Company.

Likewise, we’ll be running special promotions on Senior Wellness blood testing and Wellness Packages for your furry family, as part of the fun.

We will also be providing snacks and beverages for those in attendance; and everyone who comes will get a goodie bag to take home, too (Yay! SWAG!). If you download our new app, and like our Facebook page, you’ll also be entered eligible to win a secret prize, in addition to your goodie bag!

Please note, however; that while we usually welcome our furry friends, this event is just for people. So please: leave your pets at home… It’s too hot to have them in the car, anyway!

We hope to see you on Saturday!
