SO Many Announcements!!!

HEAR YE! HEAR YE!

Dr Gray is BACK HOME!!!!

Welcome back Dr. Reynolds Gray.  After venturing out for the past two years learning and growing as a veterinarian and a person, she has decided to come back home to Bear Creek.  She started back with us March 7th and has merged right back in just as smoothly as you please.  Her compassionate nature and easy-going personality have been missed.  We are happy to announce that she is seeing appointment on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, and performing surgeries on Fridays.  She will be able to begin doing chiropractic again very soon as […]

#TFTVT Volume Thirteen: Men and Weak Stomachs

By |April 1st, 2022|

There have been many occasions where bad smells and gross happenings have caused my male clients to get green around the gills where I have stayed unphased.  My husband is no exception.  I can think of a very memorable instance where I was treating an outbreak of Salmonella at horse stables.  Multiple horses in the stables had come down with this infection and were experiencing severe cases of colic.  Unfortunately, this infection can be life-threatening, and we did loose several in this barn during this outbreak.  One of the most common symptoms of this infection is gastric reflux.  Horses […]

New Hours of Operation and Paperwork Procedures

By |January 1st, 2022|

Changes to be aware of:

As of December 1st, we changed our office hours to Monday through Friday 8-5pm.  We are currently not open on Saturdays. 

We structured our doctors’ daily schedules in a more compact arrangement to allow for more same day sick appointments.  These appointments are not allowed to be scheduled until the opening of that day.  These are still limited and fill up quickly.  The draw back to this appears to be that once all these same day sick appointments fill up, it is more difficult to impossible to add more to the schedule.  You may also find […]

COVID-19 Changes Within the Clinic

By |January 1st, 2022|

Covid updates: 

Stanly County has seen a great increase in the number of cases of Covid and Bear Creek has specifically felt this wave.  We have several employees that have tested positive and are out recovering.  One of our family members is seriously ill and, in the hospital, fighting this illness.  Due to this uptick, we are reinstituting some stricter control measures to keep our staff and clients as safe as possible.  Afterall, if we are out sick, we cannot help your pets.  These protocols will be effective immediately and apply to ALL regardless of vaccination status. 

We are reinstituting curbside […]

#TFTVT Volume Twelve: Scary Places

By |January 1st, 2022|

As a large animal veterinarian, on call emergencies are part of the gig.  Especially late at night.  I have often been called out at night to some very sketchy locations.   Honestly most of them turn out to be nothing serious, but you really do not know that until after the call is over.   Those accustomed to country life are no strangers to dirt or gravel roads, railroad crossings, creeks, rickety bridges, and dilapidated buildings.  Those per se do not bother me, but when you start getting combinations of these and throw in some serious warning signs, then I get […]

#TFTVT Volume Eleven: The Really Good Ones

By |November 1st, 2021|

In the past I have spoken about clients that were difficult.  Let me talk about the clients that make this job worth doing.  People talk about why they got into a specific field; and, in veterinary medicine, people always say that they really love animals.  I get it, so do I.  However, for me it was more than animals.  I got into veterinary medicine because of the people.  People that I want to help.  I have been blessed on many occasions with wonderful clients coming into my life.  They became more than clients.  They became friends and family to […]

Separation Anxiety in Dogs

By |November 1st, 2021|

My colleagues and I whole heartedly agree that it seems we are having the discussion about separation anxiety a lot more frequently that we used to.  Owners are requesting more and more assistance with their dogs because of this condition. 

It may go without saying but, it’s the dogs that are suffering from separation anxiety. The cats are just glad you are finally giving them some peace and quiet. 

It also seems that we are seeing more patients daily that are not the easiest to handle and do not feel comfortable out in public around people that are not […]

NEW COVID POLICIES (August 7, 2021)

By |August 7th, 2021|

A note from the Hospital Administrator:

Due to the sudden rise in COVID cases here in Stanly County, now classified as the Delta Variant which is 6x more contagious and cause more severe symptoms which often lead to hospitalization in the most common cases, Bear Creek Veterinary Hospital is in the process of enforcing new policies to ensure the safety of our staff and clients so that we can allow our doors to remain open and provide you with service during this time while also maintaining a healthy environment.  These processes may take effect as early as Monday morning, and […]

#TFTVT Volume Nine: Summer Calvings

By |July 1st, 2021|

Working as a large animal veterinarian in the summer has its challenges.  Much like other jobs that are outside, the weather plays a huge factor in how you do your job.  In this case, not only your comfort or ability comes into play, but the animals’ as well.  Heat stress and heat exhaustion can be deadly to livestock and horses.  Cattle are overly sensitive to this in most cases, and you often have to schedule appointments for them early in the morning to avoid causing undue stress or even death.  Most cattle producers in the south avoid breeding their […]
