Happy 2023 to everyone!
For the next several months (likely until April), we are asking all clients to wear a mask when inside the hospital. Even if you are fully vaccinated, we are asking you to mask because I am undergoing chemotherapy and need to avoid any infectious diseases while I am immunocompromised. I will continue to work my normal schedule of appointments and surgery, but I will be unavailable one day a week while I undergo my own treatments. Occasionally we will need to adjust appointments, so please be patient with my staff if you are asked to change appointment times. This is a difficult time for our staff, so please be kind to them. We are also currently not accepting new clients. We will definitely see new patients of our existing clients.
Thank-you for all the cards of support and well wishes from everyone. My treatments are going very well, it is just a long road yet to travel.. I truly appreciate all the support from so many people. It really made me see how many wonderful people there are in this world.
Please be aware we are seeing a significant increase in the number of heartworm disease cases in dogs in the past two years. If your dog is not currently taking a monthly heartworm prevention medication, we recommend you have them tested and then start a monthly dose. The added bonus is that the heartworm preventives also kill several gastrointestinal parasites so you are deworming your dog for those worms every month also.
