Nutrition-what does that mean really?

How many of you have gone into a store and stood in the pet food aisle and just starred at the countless options on the shelves?  It can very difficult to choose the right food.  You want to make a good choice but what is a good choice?  Pet food companies have many tricks […]

Drug reactions

So often I am scrolling through my Facebook “home” page and I see a post about someone’s dog that took a medication and it died and how that owner is warning everyone to stay away from that medication cause “it kills dogs”.  Of course their post has been shared hundreds if not thousands of […]

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

From the Beginning…
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

Every body thinks my job is so glamorous. I talk to people and they always tell me how they always wanted to be a vet, but something happened and they never went to college or they didn’t apply. People call or stop me and ask if I need an assistant. It seems like every […]

I was on a call this morning with one of my regular cattle clients, doing my usual multitasking balancing act.  The phone rang as I was climbing over the fence to get to the calf (my patient) while  trying to avoid an unhappy mom that was harassing the gate in an attempt to keep […]

Feast or famine

Like most things in life, being a large animal vet typically runs all or nothing. There are times of the year that are naturally busier due to weather and life cycles. Spring time is always busy and we usually have our hands full with spring vaccinations, coggins tests, foalings, calvings, kiddings, […]

When my phone rings

My phone rings all the time. Sometimes it rings because there is an emergency, or because someone thinks it is an emergency but turns out not to be, or someone wants to schedule an appointment, or it is just the wrong number.

For anyone out there that does not know how our phone system at […]

Quiet time in the pool

As most of you know ,I am a very busy person at work and at home. It has always been a struggle to balance taking care of everyone else (and their animals) and myself. I’ve never really made time for myself. My physical health and mental well-being are always taking the proverbial back seat. […]

Are you prepared for a disaster? Part I

WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO?

What if your barn caught fire? Or there was a hurricane or flood in our area?
What about a disease outbreak that affected your animals? (Foot and Mouth disease-cattle, pigs, goats, etc ; or Vesicular Stomatitis-horses, cattle, goats, pigs, etc.)
Most people try hard not to think about these things happening […]
