The dream of being Veterinarian may start with the love of animals as a child, however the steps to becoming one is challenging and requires years of dedication. Once a Veterinarian begins practicing medicine, they never stop learning new methods of care through continuing education. Learning new techniques and procedures ensures that Grandview Animal Care Center is providing the best care possible. Dr. Lisa will be pursuing her certification in medical acupuncture to expand the wellness care offered to her patients. During this time the office will be required to reduce doctor hours, while still remaining open to allow for medication pick ups and technician visits. If we are unable to accommodate a patient that requires medical attention we need to recommend contacting Ellicott Small Animal Hospital at 852-8276, or one of the area emergency clinics for care. Dr. Lisa will not be available, Sunday October 14th through Friday the 19th. We apologize for the potential inconvenience this may cause, and thank you in advance for your understanding.
Summer may be winding down, but Flea and Tick season is just getting started!
Keep yourself and your furry family safe with these important facts!
FLEA FACTS: Flea season begins in the Summer, however it reaches it peak in late Summer and early Fall.
Many pet owners don’t realize that flea season doesn’t end when cooler temperatures arrive in autumn. Your pets are actually more likely to carry fleas in the fall than in the spring or summer, when most people are using flea and tick products regularly. The surge in flea populations the fall is caused by certain conditions that encourage fleas to reproduce, including there is more precipitation in the fall, and fleas are attracted to moisture. In addition to added moisture, your pet’s winter coat will start to come in during the fall, which makes it more difficult to pick off fleas. These pests also reproduce rapidly. Flea eggs can be laid on carpets, furniture, or on the pets themselves. Fleas can lay up to 50 eggs a day, which hatch within 10 days. Understanding how to break the life cycle of fleas will help you effectively control them.
TICK TRIVIA: Ticks become inactive in the cooler weather, so we are not a risk! – FALSE!
Fall tick season is in full swing and so are popular outdoors activities, whether hiking in the woods to enjoy the peak leaf season, raking, or taking the dog out for a walk through the park. While ticks are commonly found in heavily wooded areas, they also thrive in backyard grasses, gardens, unmanicured hedges and leaf litter. In fact, experts say that the majority of people who develop tick-borne diseases came in contact with the tick that made them sick right in their own backyards.
- Check your pet. Deer ticks can crawl onto your dog or cat and can attach to you after you touch your pet. Make sure to inspect pets after they’ve been outside. Like you, they’re also susceptible to Lyme.
- When walking through wooded or grassy areas, wear light-colored clothes so you can spot ticks more easily. Wear a long-sleeved shirt if possible and long pants, socks and boots or closed-toe shoes. Tuck your hair in a hat, your shirt into your pants and your pants into your socks.
Grandview Animal Care Center offers a variety of products developed to protect your pets from the potential dangers associated with fleas and ticks. The staff at GVACC are always willing to answer any questions for you to help find the best product option for your pet. Call today to get your pet protected, 716-608-6383.

Morgan Benaquist – “I can’t say enough about Dr Lisa and her staff. After having a negative experience at another vet office, I stumbled upon Grandview and made an appointment, and now I would never dream of going anywhere else in the future. My furbaby was very sick, but Dr Lisa and her team were always more than accommodating, going above and beyond in every way. I was a frequent visitor due to his condition, and everyone developed such a great bond with him, always excited to see him when I brought him in again. On days I didn’t have an appointment, they were calling to check on him and see if there was anything we needed. Just an amazing personal connection/care that you scarcely find anymore. And although my situation ended in having to say goodbye to my furbaby, I can’t imagine going through this anywhere else. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all that you do. Our community is so much better for it.“
Elizabeth Poole — “Excellent staff, beautiful clean facilities. They made my princess feel comfortable and safe. It was not easy picking a new vet after I moved, I am so glad I chose this one!”
Debbie Helmbrecht Cordone — “Such a nice atmosphere and great staff! Everyone is so friendly and caring. It’s great to have you in such a convenient location.”
