Summertime and Noise Anxiety

Dear Friends and Clients,

It’s finally Summer! We hope that you and your pets are enjoying the warm weather and staying safe. Summertime also means the beginning of fireworks season. As anyone who lives in Logan Square knows, virtually any day of the week from May to September is an occasion for fireworks. Unfortunately, loud noises can cause severe anxiety for some dogs. We recently learned of a brand new medication called SILEO, the only FDA-approved treatment for noise phobia in dogs.

SILEO has been shown to be safe and effective, calming dogs without sedating them. It comes in an oral gel that is applied onto your dog’s gums. One syringe is $37 and is good for up to 12 doses depending on the size of your dog. If you are interested in trying this new therapy for your noise sensitive dog, call or email us!

Next, we want to thank everyone who came out to our 2016 Annual Open House last month. We had a great time with everyone and were able to raise over $1,000 for Bialy's Wellness Foundation! If you haven't seen your photobooth photos yet, check them out on Facebook! We especially want to thank the generous local businesses that donated to our raffle and those of you who purchased raffle tickets. BWF is an incredibly worthy cause and the money raised will be put to good use providing specialized medical care for their special needs dogs.

It’s also time for the annual Reader Best-Of list and we’re asking for your help for the write-in ballot. If you have a moment, please nominate Boulevard Vet for Best Veterinarian in the Goods and Services category (voting ends June 9 at 12:00pm).  We really rely on this type of grass-roots promotion over traditional marketing and appreciate your votes!

Have a wonderful start to your summer!

We will also be introducing our new full-time associate veterinarian, Dr. Julie Geisler! Dr. Geisler graduated from Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine and has been practicing in the Chicagoland area since. She and her husband have recently moved to Logan Square. We are so excited to welcome her to the Boulevard family and hope you will too!

It’s been a great 1st year here at Boulevard and we could not have done it without your support of local small business. Your patronage supports 10 new jobs in Logan Square as well as discounted medical care for our rescue partners at Bialy’s Wellness Foundation, One Tail at a Time and Alive Rescue.
 

We hope to see you on May 15th!
