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, […]

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 […]

Overweight Pets

By |March 1st, 2018|

Many times, we don’t notice that our pets have gradually put on some extra weight until they start slowing down.  More often than not, it is someone else who notices that weight gain such as the groomer, a friend, or the vet before we notice it ourselves. That extra weight your pet may be carrying around can cause lasting damage to their internal organs, bones, and joints…some that can never be corrected even with a change in their diet and exercise.

So, how do you check your own pet? Have them to stand, then feel around their midsection – their […]

Canine and Feline Dentistry

By |February 5th, 2018|

Does your dog or cat have bad breath? Are they not eating their regular food as well as they used to? Are they salivating more than usual? These can all be signs of dental disease in varying forms and a large percentage of patients with oral pain show no obvious signs at all! The mouth is a very important feature when it comes to the overall health of any animal, as it is in humans! Believe it or not, dogs and cats (and many other species) often need yearly dental cleanings and daily oral care to keep their mouths […]

Equine Endoscopy

By |January 7th, 2018|

Diagnostic imaging plays an essential role in the accurate diagnosis of a variety of conditions in our equine patients. With our state-of-the-art 3 meter endoscope, we are able to obtain images and samples that help us more accurately diagnose and treat many disorders. Endoscopy allows us to assess conditions affecting the equine upper airway, guttural pouches, lungs, stomach, and bladder. Many of these disorders affect both comfort and performance in our equine athletes.

You may be wondering, “how will I know my horse needs scoping”

Here are a few scenarios that may be indications for endoscopic examination:

Gastric Ulcers:
There are many ways […]
