A Furry Christmas Wish at All Creatures

The Furry Christmas Wish

We are bringing back a fun holiday activity from a few years ago - the Furry Christmas Wish.  Don't you think if your pet could grasp the idea of Christmas gifts, they would be completely on board and have lots of wishes.
We do.   So take a good look at your pet, think about their personality -- or petsonality and imagine what would be on their gift list - then tell us.

If you pet could have 1 wish this Christmas what would it be?  Would they wish for a backyard full of bones?  All the treats they can eat? To not have other pet friends in the house?  We want to know!  Write down your pet’s name and wish on one of our special ornaments and hang it on our tree. 

On December 24th, we will pick 1 dog wish and 1 cat wish to win a special Christmas gift from all of us at All Creatures.

Thanksgiving Food Exchange

 All Creatures Veterinary Center Offers to Double Your Food Drive Donation.

The Thanksgiving Food Exchange is a food drive with a twist we hold each November at All Creatures Veterinary Center (  We collect human or pet food from our wonderful clients and friends.  The cans of corn, jars of peanut butter and boxes of cereal are weighed on the pet scale in our lobby and we keep a chart showing the weight of all the donations.   
We give all the donated food to Metrocrest Social Services in Carrollton ( And All Creatures matches the weight of our clients donations with Hill’s® Pet Diets and Royal Canin Pet Food and sends that to Metrocrest too.  
Last year our clients donated 400 lbs. of food and All Creatures, along with our pet food partners - Hill’s® and Royal Canin® donated 400 lbs of pet food.  Metrocrest Social Services has a pet food bank because many of the families they serve have pets.  And those pets need a good nutritious meal, too.

We are going to continue the Food Exchange this year and our goal is to collect and donate 1000 lbs. of food.  So even if you aren’t one of our clients, feel free to bring your human food donations by our office at 2525 E Hebron Pkwy. at Marsh Ridge Rd. 
A list of commonly needed items from Metrocrest’s web site: Peanut butter, Canned fruit, Mac & Cheese, Flavored rice & pasta “helpers” & “ronis”, Breakfast Cereal.

2) Client Appreciation Month: 10% off Pet Dental Cleaning Procedures

Although cavities are less common in pets than in people, pets can have many of the same dental problems that people can develop:
  • broken teeth and roots
  • periodontal disease
  • abscesses or infected teeth
  • cysts or tumors in the mouth
  • malocclusion, or misalignment of the teeth and bite
Periodontal disease is the most common dental condition in dogs and cats – by the time your pet is 3 years old, he or she will very likely have some early evidence of periodontal disease, which will worsen as your pet grows older if effective preventive measures aren’t taken. Early detection and treatment are critical, so if you do not know the condition of your pet’s teeth, we are happy to exam them for you at no charge.   If your pet does need to have its teeth cleaned, we will take 10% Off those procedures booked during October.
You can see more about our dental procedures watching this video:   (go to minute 1:50 to see the actual cleaning of a pets teeth).
Call us at 972-307-7400 or email us here to make an appointment or ask a question.

Time to Spay or Neuter Your Present Pet

Is it Time to Spay or Neuter Your Present Pet?
Limited Time Offer - Free Microchip with Spay or Neuter Procedure
Did you or a family member receive a pet as a present about seven months ago?  Or perhaps you have just put off the decision to spay or neuter your pet!  Whatever the case, now is the time to make this important decision for your pet.
At All Creatures, we treat every surgery seriously, even "routine" spay and neuter procedures.  We follow a 9 step protocol for every spay or neuter procedure and the fee is $289. See the details here:
Plus now, through August 31st, we will include a free microchip for your pet.  Some local cities are starting to require microchips as part of their pet registration regulations.
If your family pet does not have microchip identification, consider this sad story.  Just last week, a lady brought in a beautiful, sweet Siamese mix cat she had found that had no collar or tag on. We scanned this very nice cat but there was no microchip. Sadly, it is very likely someone has lost their beloved pet for lack of any ID.
But there are happy reunion stories.  Rocco, a beagle from Queens, New York went missing in 2003. Five years later, Rocco was reunited with his family after animal control officials in Georgia identified him by his microchip!
Brooke Burke, Season 7 champion of "Dancing with the Stars", had her chocolate lab, Jake, returned to her after he was lost for nine months. When the man who found and kept Jake took him in for a check-up, the veterinarian scanned for a microchip and began the reunion process.
At All Creatures, we offer Microfindr microchips that use a smaller chip and smaller needle than other brands. 
Smaller Chip = Smaller Needle
Spay and Neuter Benefits
Spaying and neutering is safe and the only permanent, 100% effective birth control for dogs and cats. In addition to helping control pet over-population, spaying or neutering your pet has been shown to  reduce the chance of developing uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers. It also can reduce the risk of other health problems and can prolong the life of your beloved pet. Hormone-driven diseases as well as behavioral issues can be eliminated after the surgical sterilization procedure.
If your pet is intact, schedule a spay or neuter appointment with us today.
Call us at 972-307-7400 or email us here.

Does Your Pet Need Dental Insurance?

Does Your Pet Need Dental Insurance?

Every pet parent worries about the “big stuff” that can affect our pets, like a major health problem or knee injuries, but did you know that dental disease is far more common.  Pet insurance covers those accidents and illnesses, but many plans now include pet dental services.

And here’s the truth about the tooth: 85% of all pets have signs of periodontal disease by the time they’re 3 years old – and that’s not the only thing that can wreak havoc on your pet’s pearly whites! Injuries like tooth fractures are common, too (particularly if your dog is fond of chewing). Removing teeth cracked or loose teeth can be costly, which is why having pet insurance that can help pay for unexpected, non-routine dental treatments is a great idea.
