Video Transcript:

Hi everybody. It's Dr. Michele Drake at The Drake Center here on this beautiful Saturday, Easter weekend. I hope everyone gets a chance to get outside and enjoy some of the sunshine because I know it may be a little cloudy tomorrow. I'm here today with one of our really cute patients named Bobby, and just want to talk to you about a few things. First of all, I want to remind everyone please don't forget your preventative care. So if you're running low on Sentinel or Bravecto or anything, let us know. We really want to make sure you keep up on those things. There are a lot of ticks out now with the wetness and fleas are here all year round, so we want to make sure you stay up on those things. Obviously rabies vaccine, super important. Always keep up on those too. And so just any questions you have about preventative care, how we can make sure that you get that during this time, we're going to make sure you have what you need.

Just want to mention a few other things. There's been a lot of press about, I'm going to go ahead and set him down, he's getting a little anxious, a lot of press about the tiger that tested positive and the possibility of zoonotic transmission. There has been zero cases of any human getting anything from their pet. So don't worry about that. There's so many other things to be concerned about and this is not one of them. Some cats are able to have some virus particles in them associated with picking it up from a human. But there's no transmission from pets to humans, and certainly nothing with dogs at all. So please don't let that be one of the things you have to worry about right now.

And then just wanted to mention, our staff has just been amazing through all of this and this week we're going to have a little extra staff appreciation for just the amazing women at The Drake Center. Just going to do some fun stuff every day, so feel free to give us a shout out on Facebook or Instagram. Just let them know you appreciate them because they're working really hard to be here always for the care of your dogs and cats.

So anyway, hope you guys have a great weekend. We're here every day of the week. Our doctors take calls till 10 o'clock at night for all of our clients, and we want to be here with you through this. We're all going to get through this together and it's going to be fine. Just keep doing what we're supposed to do, social distancing. Keep your social circle really small, but have a great weekend.
