Shop Small, Today and Every Day!

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Malta Animal Hospital is proud to support Small Business Saturday, a day designated to support locally run, small busShop Smallinesses in our community and score some great local deals.  Shop’til you drop at the box stores on Black Friday (or save yourself a big headache and DON’T), but make sure you support community on Saturday!

When is it?  The Saturday after Thanksgiving (the day AFTER Black Friday) each year.

Why should people Shop Small?  Money spent at small businesses in Malta, Ballston Spa, Saratoga, and Clifton Park stays in the area, supports the local community, and gives back to the people and organizations close to home instead of going to large corporations and their CEO’s and shareholders (usually spread out globally).  When you Shop Small, it MATTERS!  As more and more of our spending goes to giant companies such as Amazon, CVS, and Wal-mart that don’t tend to invest in their local employees or in our community, less goes to smaller merchants like us.  We’re happy American Express has partnered with small merchants to help them share their message: great products with better service and a commitment to the community!

Where is the event?  Visit your favorite locally owned and operated small businesses such as Malta Animal Hospital, Double M Western Store, Curtis Lumber, Allerdice Hardware, Malta Wine and Liquor, The Ripe Tomato, and the others such as Rock Fit. (Did you know…MANY of the seemingly small veterinary practices in our area are no longer locally owned- they’ve been gobbled up by large corporations?)  American Express has created a map… click here to see it and enter your address for very local results.

How do I participate?  Simply go out and grab some great deals from your favorite local store or other small business during the holiday shopping season, and every day!  Think of it as voting with your wallet, and support your home team!

Hope to see you Saturday!

MAH 10th Anniversary

We are so excited about our upcoming Open House Saturday June 14th from 11am-3pm!  We are planning on fun for the whole family including our 4 legged furry family members.  In addition to tours of the animal hospital, we will have a Teddy Bear Repair Clinic hosted by Dr. Michelle Bombard.  Children will be able to bring in any stuffed animal with a boo boo and get it stitched, bandaged and will be good to go!  The kids will be able to dress up like a veterinary surgeon as their favorite stuffed animal is being repaired.  We will also have extra stuffed animals on hand for any children that didn’t bring their own.  We will have a wonderful raffle with awesome pet and human related goodies!  All proceeds will go to local animal charities.

We are hoping for great weather, but just in case we will have large tents outside.  We will fire up the grill for hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers too!  There will also be cotton candy and sno cones for a sweet treat.  Children will be able to enjoy the bouncy house, face painting and other kid friendly activities.

In our fenced in yard, we will have dog agility demonstrations.  You can watch a professional train her dogs in an agility course, then try your own dog out on the equipment.

We will be having our absolute best sale of the year on Frontline and Vectra.  It will be worthwhile to stock up for your pets!

In support of Malta’s own dog park Eastline Romp and Play, we will be giving out vouchers for a FREE year of dog park membership!

In celebration of Malta Animal Hospital’s 10th year we hope you can join us for our Open House!
