Veterinarians in the San Francisco Bay Area warn pet parents about these four common fall problems that could end in your pet's hospitalization.

"As pet parents, we want our pets to be around as long as possible, and that means being aware of the hazards they may face outside the home," said Dr. Richard E. Boesiger, president of the North Bay Veterinary Specialists, who also serves as veterinary director of Pet Emergency Care of the North Bay and of the Contra Costa Veterinary Referral Center in Danville. "Many of these can be prevented with proper pet care, so it is important that pet parents teach their children how to care for their animals."

In addition to being an important part of your child's care, animals also provide the children with much needed unconditional love. The benefits of learning about animal care are obvious — and for children, fun — according to the American Humane Association.

"By helping animals, kids learn compassion, responsibility, respect and responsibility, all traits that we need for a lifetime of good citizenship," said Dr. Marcia Kilpatrick, a veterinarian at Animal Medical Center in Hayward, Calif.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 10 million people suffer from a pet-related injury each year, and pets are responsible for more than $7 billion in emergency care and nearly 2 million hospitalizations.

"Dogs, cats, birds and other pets are important members of families and deserve a safe, loving home. Teaching your child to properly care for a pet can ensure a lifetime of love, loyalty, and friendship," said Dr. Steve Dale, veterinary director of Pet Emergency Care of the North Bay and the Contra Costa Veterinary Referral Center.

"Having a veterinarian as a role model is especially important for children," added Dr. Kilpatrick. "Kids who see their veterinarian treat animals daily are more likely to take proper care of their own pets, which can prevent potentially fatal emergencies."

If your child has an interest in veterinary medicine, Animal Medical Center recommends that parents encourage their children to get a head start by visiting an animal clinic as soon as they are old enough.

"We can provide a variety of opportunities for children to interact with animals," said Dr. Dale. "These visits can instill a lifelong interest in the veterinary field."

Animal Medical Center is a comprehensive veterinary facility and has an extensive education department for children of all ages. The facility offers a summer camp and a summer camp scholarship for children of low-income families.

Animal Medical Center's Education Department provides programs and classes on animal care, grooming and veterinary skills. Children can earn up to 15 hours of college credit through the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges accredited program.

In addition to its educational program, Animal Medical Center provides care for animals of all ages and is a full-service hospital and veterinary clinic with a wide range of services and advanced medical equipment.

Animal Medical Center is located at 4120 West Bernardo Avenue in Hayward. It is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. More information can be found at www.animalmedicalcenter.com.
