    In-House vs. Reference Lab Testing (including benefits of both)

In-House vs. Reference Lab Testing (including benefits of both)

By |February 1st, 2019|

One of the major progressions in veterinary medicine is the
ability to perform more specific and accurate laboratory testing.  This is of utmost importance when your pet is
ill, but is also needed for routine wellness screenings, pre-anesthetic
evaluations, and monitoring response to therapy.

As you may know, we are able to perform many laboratory
tests ‘in-house.’ This means that we can obtain results the same day that your
pet is in the clinic. We do this by using microscopes, blood machines, and
urine analyzers located in the hospital laboratory area. Examples of different
in-house tests we perform include: complete blood count, full blood chemistry
and electrolyte analysis, […]

Interpreting Dr. Google

By |February 1st, 2019|

We live in an age where
information, good or bad, is readily available at our fingertips with the
emergence of tablets, smart phones, computers, etc. This seems to have further
perpetuated the number of home remedies people try, prior to bringing their pet
in for something alarming. Home remedies have always been around; but, with
Google and other search engines and blogs, it seems that sometimes pet owners
prolong treatment by a veterinarian because something at home may have helped
temporarily (or didn’t help), but trying it prolonged the time for the animal
to get proper care for an ailment. Whether we verbalize it to you or […]

Euthanasia

By |January 2nd, 2019|

This is not a happy topic to discuss.  It is an even unhappier thing to have to experience.  However, when it comes to our pets and even
livestock, this is sometimes a necessary and humane decision.  When an animal has a terminal disease and
their quality of life is poor with no real hope of improvement, often the
decision is made to end suffering.  In
other instances, the cost of treatment is too great, or the risk of bad outcome
is overwhelming and does not warrant putting the animal through the procedure
to try for good outcome.  In the case of
livestock, the procedure or treatment […]

Goat Nutrition

By |August 2nd, 2018|

Goat nutrition is nothing like the old cartoons of goats eating tin cans and napkins.

Goats can be low maintenance;

but, we often put them in a situation that is alien to them and is much like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. This article is not intended to be a detailed narration on how to balance a ration.  It is, however, a brief generalization on how goats fair best with one specific nutritional guideline…. goats are browsers, not grazers.  They can be very picky on occasion.   

In their natural habitat, goats roam over distances and climb to areas difficult to […]

Kidding season

By |March 23rd, 2014|

My favorite thing to do…

Well, let’s be honest, I have a few favorite things.  This is by far, at the top of that list. Delivering baby goats/lambs.  I will put lambs in that category as well because in this, there really isn’t a big difference between goats and sheep.  Most of those close to me know how I feel about sheep (sorry Hattie), but I love a baby goat!  What I love even more about baby goats, is delivering them.  When a client calls me about a doe in labor, I give a silent fist pump in my head.
