Barking dogs can be bad for the neighborhood.

With the winter holidays just about over, our thoughts turn to the coming year. Where will we focus our energy and time? What can we improve upon from last year? What are our long term goals for ourselves and our families? These and other important questions abound, such as, how will we help our pets to feel their best?

The Many Reasons Our Compassionate Veterinary Staff is Grateful

Our compassionate veterinary staff is grateful for you

The story collection Winnie-the-Pooh was published 92 years ago by the British author A.A. Milne. Pooh (and his highly relatable group of friends in the Hundred-Acre Wood) not only soothed kids still shaken by the effects of war, but with his beautifully simple, yet philosophical, musings Pooh spoke to people of all ages. The characters still endure to this day, in part because we have a treasure trove of insightful quotes that remind us of what really matters in life.

As we prepare to close out the year, we can’t help but reflect on the things we’re grateful for. To quote Eeyore, “ A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference”. Our compassionate veterinary staff couldn’t agree more!

We Love Our Vet Techs!

Copy of iStock_000018801259_Medium (1)When you bring your pet to the vet, be it for a wellness exam or the urgent treatment of an immediate condition, you know that Fluffy or Fido will be in good hands. Most often (we hope), this is because of the care and devotion that our staff displays every day. Each member of our veterinary staff plays an important part in serving our pets’ needs, and our veterinary technicians are no exception.

Even though we acknowledge the dedication that vet techs display on a daily basis as they care for and treat our pets, National Veterinary Technician Week provides us with the opportunity to honor our vet techs’ ongoing commitment to animal welfare.
