Goodbye and Good Luck to Arleigh!
Here at Seasons, we have a very tight-knit, wonderful team of people who
put their heart and soul into their work. One of these people has been
Arleigh – and for any of you who’ve visited Seasons, there is a good chance
she has been the friendly voice answering your calls and checking you in
and out at the front desk. Arleigh has been an integral part of Seasons, and
so it is with excitement for Arleigh that we announce she has headed off on
a new and very exciting adventure to the Okanagan. Below is a message
Arleigh asked us to pass along to all our wonderful clients:
“Hi everyone, I’m Arleigh! As you may or may not know I’m one of the admin
assistants here at the clinic and I’ve been a part of the Seasons team since
back in October 2019. I wanted to say a bittersweet goodbye because unfortunately I won’t be
around at the clinic anymore, as I’ve decided to pack up, move to Kelowna
and embark on a new adventure for myself and my pup, Daisy!
It has really been so wonderful getting to know all of the clients and their
pets at the clinic and I will genuinely miss every one of our amazing
patients. I think I can speak for everyone when I say the clients at Seasons
really make our job that much more enjoyable and rewarding!
Take care everyone and give your pets a big squeeze from me! ”

As summer turns to fall and we start to prepare for the cooler
weather, we often run into cases of rodenticide toxicity or
‘mouse poison’ ingestion. Mouse poison is designed to be tasty
to small mammals like rats and mice, but unfortunately, our
cats and dogs are attracted to it as well. Once ingested, the
poison inhibits the animal’s ability to clot blood normally, and
so fatal hemorrhage is the cause of illness and possible death.
So as you prepare to winterize your homes and properties,
watch out for where rodenticide poison is located, and if there
is any possibility that your pet has ingested some (even a tiny
quantity), reach out to a vet clinic right away, and we will
initiate treatment to prevent serious or fatal side effects.
