Failure as part of the process…

It is easy to write about the successes and sweet cuddly warm and fuzzies, but much more difficult to write about the harsh and unflattering scrutiny of our failures. At this practice we strive for perfection and quality customer service but we are made up of individuals that are human just like you.

Rat Poisoning (Rodenticide Toxicity)

Well, it has finally gotten cold around here and with that comes a large increase in the number of phone calls about dogs and cats eating rat poison. When it gets colder outside the mice and rats seek shelter inside for warmth and food. In response people are more likely to put out baits […]

New Chapters

When to fight and when to let go?

What would you do, if this were your animal?

That question can be so difficult to answer at times.  I have cases where the choice seems obvious and other times no so much.  We are supposed to be an unbiased, objectionable third party that can give you the medical answers needed to make this decision. […]

How Bear Creek has evolved

On the day I opened this practice, I wanted to create a practice that was community oriented. I wanted to get to know my clients and my patients. To be their doctor. Their trusted advisor. My goal was to have clients that I considered friends, family even. I was focused on those […]

It’s tough to be a vet
