Celebrate National Beer Day Safely


Happy National Beer Day!  Will you be celebrating with your favorite drink at happy hour?  While you may love to relax with a cold drink, make sure that you keep your alcoholic beverage away from your pet! 

Keeping alcohol away from pets is important.  Here are a few of the health effects that consuming a beer can have on your pet.

Signs of Alcohol Poisoning:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Decreased Coordination
  • Central Nervous System Depression
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Tremors
  • Abnormal Blood Acidity
  • Coma
  • Death
The effects of alcohol are heavily dependent on body weight.  Since your pet weighs a lot less than you do, even a  small amount of alcohol can make them dangerously sick.  Read more about the effects that alcohol can have on your pet if you accidentally give them a beer here.

If you do experience any problems with your pet’s health – whether they have accidentally reached your alcohol or otherwise.  Our experienced veterinarians can help make sure that your furry friend is happy and healthy.
