How to Reduce Stress at the Vet

By |May 1st, 2018|

When it comes to taking your pet to the vet, there is a degree of stress that can be involved.  For most people, this is a once a year event and the thought of taking their cat or dog anywhere is stressful.  This is because their pets are not used to going anywhere other than outside to go to the bathroom.  Of course, that stress increases when the pet is sick or injured.

We want your visit to be as stress free as possible, if possible.  We see all different kinds of animals and all different personalities as well.  So, […]

Small Animal Food Allergies

By |May 1st, 2018|

One of the most common issues seen today in dogs and cats is allergies, which can be divided into 3 categories: flea allergies, seasonal/environmental allergies, and food allergies. Food allergies are the least common but often the most frustrating type of allergy to diagnose and control.

Food allergy or more appropriately named adverse food reaction is a hypersensitivity reaction to one or more components of the diet. This abnormal reaction is caused by an immune response to a food component the animal has previously been exposed to which then causes an allergic reaction throughout the body.  Food allergies can occur […]

The Scoop on Chiropractic

With only two more sessions of training until I’m certified in Animal Chiropractic, I’m excited to offer this service to our patients starting in June!  I’d like to take this opportunity to give you a few examples of things that can cause your animal to have problems with the spine.

June Bug is receiving a chiropractic sample session from Dr. Gray (her mom).

Each animal is put together differently. Sometimes they have longer backs, shorter necks or legs that aren’t quite even. These differences can often lead to compensation throughout the spine resulting in decreased overall comfort […]

Pet Emergency Medicine

By |April 1st, 2018|

While veterinary emergencies are stressful for pets and their owners, this guide may serve to help better prepare you and alleviate some of the worry should your pet experience a medical emergency. Please note that this is strictly a GUIDE, and is NOT intended to serve as specific veterinary medical advice or treatment for your individual pet.

As with any emergency situations, one of the most important things is to try to Remain Calm. 

Panic simply increases stress and can limit your ability to think clearly. One of the first things you need to do in an emergency is contact the veterinary hospital […]

Ghost Post #2 – Update on her progress

By |August 9th, 2014|

Day 11: Six Weeks Old
We’ve had Ghost for eleven days now and based on our guesstimated date of birth, we’re assuming she’s just about at the end of her sixth week. I figured I’d take a moment or two this morning to write an update on her progress – if I can get five minutes of peace where she’s not chewing on my toes under this chair as I write! Ow!

The good news is – teaching her to Heel won’t be a problem! In fact, getting her away from my side is harder than getting her to come to […]

Ghost – between worlds but firmly in our hearts.

By |August 6th, 2014|

How she came to us
Since we are the owners now we can choose to share this information so here is the story of how Ghost came to us.
Ghost is one of seven sisters, reported to be between 8 to 10 weeks old when my wife was called out for emergency treatment last Wednesday night. A kind and loving couple had somehow found out about this litter of puppies left outdoors in a dog pen. The owners had removed the mother from the area previously and then decided to apparently go away for a week, leaving the puppies outdoors with […]
