At Maywood Veterinary Clinic, we are streaming ahead into 2019. Do you hear that noise? It’s the collective sound of pens hitting paper as we all write down our new year’s resolutions…

Before we get to far into things, though, we like to take a good look back to the accomplishments and good times of 2018. For us, those included our amazing clients and patients in the South Bergen County area.

One thing we like to look back on most is our monthly pet care blog, and which of our posts resonated the most with you.

#1: Indoor Cats and Intestinal Parasites
Intestinal parasites seldom make the list of topics we like to discuss, and yet, parasites are certainly a big part of life – especially for our pets and other animals.
