We ask for your patience as we strive to keep you, your pets and our staff safe and healthy.

Pet of the Month – Kiva

Kiva - Pet of the Month

Kiva foreign body 2This beautiful girl is Kiva. Kiva is a 6 year old lab that developed a chronic cough a while back. An x-ray was performed which showed an area of inflammation in one of her lung lobes. Oral antibiotics were prescribed and Kiva improved, but once she had finished the antibiotics she began to cough again. Lab work was ordered, however, the results were inconclusive as to the cause of Kiva’s cough. A CT scan revealed that part of her lung contained a localized mass or infiltrate. Surgery was performed and the affected part of her lung was removed. Upon inspection of the removed lung lesion, foreign plant material was found embedded in the tissue (see photo to right). Kiva recovered well and has not had any more issues with coughing. Congratulations Kiva on being this month’s Pet of the Month.

Update To Our COVID Protocols

We continue to monitor COVID-19 and the best way to keep everyone safe and healthy.  Due to the Omicron variant and increased number of cases our local community is experiencing, we will close our lobby and return to 100% curbside care effective immediately. Our industry is experiencing unprecedented staffing shortages and the need to preserve our staffing levels has influenced this decision. We will continue to monitor the progress of COVID and adjust our protocols accordingly. We are ready to care for your pet and ensure extra snuggles and TLC during their visit.

Please text us when you arrive for your appointment – the number is on our building and signs.
