The winter holiday season has drawn to a close, and our thoughts have turned to the year ahead. Where will we focus our energy and time? What worked well for us in 2019, and what do we want to change moving forward in 2020? 

These and other important questions abound, such as, how will we help our pets to feel their best and remain safe and happy? This last question is one that Fairview Veterinary Hospital can assist with, in more ways than one.

True, we love seeing your pets regularly and believe exams are critical to their health and wellbeing. We also love to share relevant and helpful information in our pet care blog

Writing and publishing this blog is our pleasure, and we hope it gives pet owners some informative tips and even sometimes a dose of fun and silliness. At the end of the year, we are looking back to share with you our top blogs of 2019. Enjoy!
