It's National #BlackCatAppreciationDay! Black cats are no less sweet and lovable than any other cats. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ–คBut because of superstitious beliefs in some cultures, black cats are sometimes associated with bad luck and, sadly, are overlooked and unlikely to be adopted at shelters. ๐Ÿ˜ฟ

If youโ€™ve been looking for a rescue cat yourself, why not consider a black cat from #SNPLA? We have the most adorable and lovable group of black kittens. Not only are the superstitions about them bringing bad luck completely untrue, but you might find a black cat to be a fantastic feline companion for you! ๐Ÿ˜ธ

Help spread awareness by taking photos with your black cats and tag us! ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ@snpla. We'd love to see them all!

BLAND DIET and TEMPTING YOUR PET TO EAT by Dr. Katie Marrie, DVM

Some of our patients may experience a mild upset stomach after their spay & neuter surgeries. This occurs for a variety of reasons including stress, anesthesia, or a reaction to their pain medicine. ย When your pet is experiencing an upset stomach he/she may not feel like eating, but it is extremely important to encourage him/her to eat. ย You should never let your pet go more than 24 hours without eating. ย If your pet is refusing to eat or experiencing an upset stomach and vomiting, cease pain medication and follow these simple instructions to tempt them to eat a bland diet to get them back on track. ย If your pet is not eating and it has been 24 hours, please call us at (310)574-5555 or (562)225-6864 after-hours and/or bring your pet in to see our veterinarian.

Why should I spay or neuter my pet?

There are numerous reasons to spay or neuter your pet. Many include health reasons and your pet being a better companion animal. The earlier you spay/neuter your pet, the better. Younger animals heal quicker and have fewer complications (plus, the surgery is WAY easier on the surgeon too!). The following will break down the benefits for each species and gender. A good thing to remember if you live in Los Angeles: YOU MUST spay and neuter your dog or cat if it is over four months of age – it is the law! Violations are subject to high fines and after the third fine violation, non-compliance is a misdemeanor charge.
