Fun x-rays!

Radiographs are such an important tool for the veterinarian, but they can be fun too!  Everybody loves the "what did the dog swallow" x-ray, so that is where we will start.  Can you see what Brittany (below) swallowed?

A Beagle in the City

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! For most people, it’s a joyful night of feigned fright and sugary treats.  What about our pets?  Some dogs honestly seem to dig the costumes, and prance about, basking in the attention.  Others, and especially cats: not so much!

"FIV" stands for "Feline Immunodeficiency Virus."  FIV is a retrovirus just like HIV in people; fortunately FIV can not be transmitted to people.  About 1-5% of seemingly healthy cats carry the FIV virus.  There is no [...]

Tiki: One Lucky Cat

Most cats don’t survive an interaction with a coyote.  They just “go missing,” and they disappear in the night.  Tiki is the exception.  Tiki not only survived one coyote, he survived three. Late one evening, Tiki’s Dad heard a sound outdoors.  Much to his surprise, he found three coyotes in his backyard, and one of [...]
