As we pack away our snow shovels and bring out our gardening tools, it is important to pick wisely, as some of our favorite plants can be toxic to our dogs. Plants that are poisonous to our dogs can be found in bouquets, in our yards, and in the wild, and consumption can cause a wide range of reactions varying from a mild rash to death.
To avoid a wondering nose, keep household plants out of a dog’s reach. Outdoors, keep dogs away from gardens and highly landscaped areas. If your dog ingests any plant it is important to stay calm and call your nearest Bucktown Vet, Village West Veterinary.

Dear Pet Parents,
We thank you for your continued support while we've been navigating this new season of life in the COVID-19 world. We know that you're eager to get back into the hospital to accompany your pets during their visits. Unfortunately, in order to protect all our pet parents and our staff, we are unable to open the hospital to visitors at this time. We are going to continue practicing social distancing as long as necessary to insure we can stay open for your pets when they need us most. We ask that you please be patient with our team, and remember that everything we do is with the best of intentions for you, your pets and our employees. We love serving the Village West Veterinary community, and hope to do so for a very long time to come.
Our appointments continue to fill up fast, so we suggest scheduling your appointments at least 2 to 4 weeks in advance, whenever possible. If your pet is sick and needs to been seen right away, please let us know as early in the day as possible. We appreciate your support.
