Did you know that February is national pet dental health month? At Bishop Ranch, we are celebrating dental month with $50 off dental cleanings.

As Valentine's Day approaches it's important that pet owners are aware of the danger that those adorable heart-shaped chocolate boxes and candies pose for our pets. Dogs are infamous for their less than discriminating taste in foods; with chocolate in particular they appear as powerless to resist as we are. And while most cats won't eat it on their own, they can be coaxed to eat it by owners or others who think they're giving the cat a treat. So it's important to keep chocolate and treats out of reach for our furry friends this Valentine's Day (and every day!). Read More
