Imagine that long before you actually needed help, there was someone waiting to lend a hand. Or, in the case of service dogs, a paw. Anticipating the needs of the owners/handlers, these highly-trained animals are not only amazing at their jobs, they’re downright necessary for people with disabilities or significant health issues. You’ve probably seen one of these life-saving dogs in public before, but it may surprise you to learn that there are many different types, all with their own skills, legal protections, and privileges.
Americans With Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects handlers and their service dogs from discrimination. In fact, they are allowed entry into all buildings, facilities, and businesses (even those with “no pets” policies) without restriction. If they are stopped, asked to leave or to furnish documentation, the handler can file civil charges against them. Continue…
Whether natural or manmade, a disaster is something that nobody wants to think about. While residents of the Chicagoland area have experienced few disasters in recent years, tornados, fire, and damage from ice and severe snow are always looming threats. Being prepared for an emergency is critical to protecting your loved ones, and that includes emergency preparedness for pets.
Gather Your Supplies
Storing a pet-friendly supply kit in an easily accessible location is vital to emergency preparedness for pets. Your pet’s kit should include: Continue…
Many pets have spent the summer basking in the glow of endless attention and admiration from younger members of the family. Now that minds and bodies are beginning to prepare for the start of a new school year, your pet may wind up with a lot more time on their paws.
Separation anxiety in pets is common when routines change and family members are suddenly gone more often. Having a pet who’s out-of-sorts is no fun, but with a little patience and consistency (and help from your friends at Springbrook Animal Care Center), you can have your pet’s tail wagging again in no time.

Your cat may be a neighborhood explorer. They go over fences, cross streets, and see what life has in store on the other side of the tracks. Until one day, they just don’t return home. If they’re not microchipped, you might elect to staple flyers on telephone pole, place ads online, and encourage others to share posts on social media to help reunite you with your best buddy.
Similarly, some dogs bolt out of their front doors, dig beneath gates, or pull on their leashes until they’re free. Sometimes, they come back when called. But all too often, they become separated from their owners.
The good news is that pet microchips aid in the swift homecoming of lost, missing, and even stolen pets. In spite of their widespread popularity, some owners wait or decide not to microchip. With the following FAQs, the Pet Experts hope to dispel any misconceptions. Continue…
If you’ve ever adopted a pet (and we highly recommend it!), you probably know how exciting and wonderful it can be to bring a deserving animal into your home. Now, imagine being able to offer the same chance to several more pets in need over the course of your life. No, we’re not suggesting that you adopt more animals. Instead, we recommend fostering a pet.
What Does Fostering Entail?
Fostering a pet may seem straightforward, but it actually involves many different things to consider. Fostering a pet encompasses all of the following and more: Continue…
There aren’t many exercises you and your pet can do together. Sure, you can walk, run, swim, or hike with your dog, but could other physical activities – like fetch or laser chaser – also be mutually beneficial? You might get a kick out of it, and it could help you blow off some steam, but aside from the fun factor, your pet is probably the only one getting exercise.
Pet yoga, on the other hand, benefits both owners and animals – and The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center know first hand how relaxing it is!
Unroll That Mat
The essence of yoga is rhythmic breathing paired with various stretches and poses. Designed for the alignment of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, yoga originated in India and is now practiced all over the world. Continue…
If you’re a runner, and you have a dog, combining the two may seem like a no-brainer. You and your dog both get the benefits of a good workout, and the time spent together can strengthen your relationship. Because running with your dog carries certain risks, and not all dogs are good candidates for that type of exercise, it’s important to make sure you cover your bases as far as safety precautions, and The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center are here to help!
But First, Come See Us
Just like humans, pets should have a wellness exam prior to beginning any new exercise program. Your veterinarian will make sure your pet is healthy enough for strenuous exercise and up-to-date on their vaccines and parasite protection. Continue…
So, you have a new member of your household. Congratulations! There are few things as heartwarming and joyful as adding a new puppy to your life. As you may know, puppies not only bring fun, smiles, and cuddles, but also add a whole new level of work and many questions, too.
Fear not! The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center have some great information to get you and your puppy started off on the right foot.
First Things First
To start, be aware that your puppy has been learning since birth! Good breeders start handling puppies and socializing them right away. And, your puppy will be learning just as soon as you bring them home. Early socialization and positive reinforcement help to make sure your puppy becomes a wonderful companion. Continue…
Most people shudder at the idea of ticks, but that doesn’t stop us from hiking, camping, picnicking, or working in the yard. Even though these 8-legged pests are sneaky, insidious, and hungry for blood, we still enjoy the great outdoors – and so do our dogs. After all, who hasn’t seen a dog rolling around the grass with utter abandon? Frolicking and exploring are a canine’s birthright, but Lyme disease in dogs remains a serious concern. As such, The Pet Experts of Springbrook Animal Care Center offer the top 5 clinical signs of Lyme disease so you can seek help immediately.
