The Pet Experts of Naperville, IL
If you’ve ever seen your dog stare down a squirrel or watched your cat lie in wait for a sparrow to fly by, you know that pets can be fiercely focused when it comes to wildlife. Paired with natural curiosity and a somewhat misplaced sense of domination, this single mindedness can land them in hot water when it comes to the family Mephitidae, or skunks.
The Pet Experts have seen it all, and when an animal comes to us following an “incident” with a skunk, we know exactly what to do.Continue…
A small animal is a big responsibility. They depend on their owners to provide the right environment, appropriate diet, grooming, and enrichment, not to mention disease and parasite prevention.
Caring for an exotic or pocket pet can be incredibly rewarding when all of these components are aligned, but things can go really wrong – really fast. Knowing what to do when an emergency illness appears can make all the difference when your exotic or pocket is sick.Continue…
We all know how important water is to our daily functioning, and the same is true for our pets. Pet’s bodies are made up of an even higher percentage of water than human bodies, and even mild dehydration can have a serious effect on their overall health and functioning.
July is Pet Hydration Awareness Month, the perfect time to look for ways to improve your pet’s water consumption!Continue…
As we round the corner toward the dog days of summer, it’s essential to approach scorching temperatures with a hearty dose of scrutiny.
The heat risks pets face simply don’t let up, but there are many things owners can do to prevent season-related illness and injury. For starters, knowing when it’s too hot for your pet to walk outside (let alone run around!) is critical to avoiding an emergency. While pets need protection from heatstroke, summer paw safety is of equal importance.Continue…
Dogs and cats will probably always be the most popular pets, but exotic animals have been rising in popularity in recent years. Exotic animals are defined as those who haven’t been domesticated and are relatively uncommon as pets.
Many people assume that certain exotic pets are easier to care for than a dog or cat due to their smaller size, but this isn’t always the case. Exotic pet care can range from relatively simple to highly complicated, so it’s always best to do your research before making a decision.
Cats may not always follow their owners around dropping clear, audible hints about their preferences, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t communicating. In fact, cats tell us a great deal, but because it’s usually conveyed through subtle body language, messages can get lost.
Cat tails in particular act like barometers for feline emotions, so it’s important to observe and interpret the signals being sent. When we respond accordingly, the relationship between cats and people can become even more trusting and respectful.Continue…
The animals we share our lives with are family members, soul mates, and best friends.
They give so much to us, and we turn to them for comfort, entertainment, and companionship. In exchange, we do our best to ensure they have everything they need (and most things they want!). However, because it’s so terrifying to think of your pet in a life-threatening situation, most owners fall a little short in the pet emergency department.
That’s why The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center want to take a moment to review the basics of pet CPR.Continue…

Stress can take a serious toll on our mental and physical health, and studies show that we are more stressed out than ever. Thankfully, relaxation has proven benefits, such as lowering our blood pressure, boosting our immune system, combating depression, protection against cancer, and so much more. Even though most of us know we should make more time for relaxation, it can seem hard to fit it into busy schedules.
That’s where pets come in! Living with a pet means we have a built-in reason to play more, exercise more, and have more fun overall. The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center want to tell you more about the health benefits of relaxing with pets, and how to make sure you’re getting the most out of your time together.Continue…
