You'd never know this little guy was neutered yesterday! Happily lounging and munching hay! Thanks for the wonderful care Dr. Rix and team! ☺️🐹
So yesterday Karma and I said our final goodbyes to Murphy - the best little puggy a dog mom could ask for. A HUGE thank you to Falconridge Animal Hospital, especially vet tech Megan and Dr. Vandervalk for such a compassionate and caring experience. Megan has been one of Murphy's best friends since he came to me as a puppy, and for the last 6 years, every time we have an appointment, Megan comes out to say hello and give Murphy some lovin'. They have a lovely and comfortable room for these appointments. Both Megan and Dr. Vandervalk asked me about his medical issues because he's such a young pug and it is unusual for this type of request on such a young dog. I assured him that this corneal ulcer was just the last in a long list of medical problems. His breathing is very hard, even though he had soft palate surgery 3 years ago. He has arthritis in his back legs, and I push him in a stroller at the park and practically carry him everywhere in the house (he has difficulty with stairs). He will be on pain medication for the rest of his life for arthritis. He has a permanent infection in his nose fold. And ... he quit eating. He started refusing the home made liver treats I have been making, and on Monday, he even refused some french fries. If Murphy is refusing french fries... he's definitely telling me he;s ready to go. :( I got to hold Murphy during the injection, and hold him as long as I wanted after he passed. Such an incredibly warm and compassionate experience during such a difficult time. Murphy and Karma's page is Karma the Rescue, and loving memories of Murphy the Pug ... the whole story is told there. He had an eye ulcer that advanced so quickly.....
Still missing Was last seen in the parking lot of the apartment building 2 min away from the red Harrison school by Stoney trail pathway PLEASE BRING HER BACK
No kidding, eh? We have 3 cats, all on special diets, all with special eating habits/routines! Refereeing "breakfast time" takes some serious planning! With several different foods to disperse, we practically need to print MENUS! HaHa! But when all is said and done - we love 'em all! 🐈🐈🐈

Check out our patients, Delilah and Oliver! Their family moved to Ecuador! Their move got delayed due to COVID-19, but last week, they finally got to go!!
Hope you love Ecuador, Delilah and Oliver!

Ollie and Tahli came in for their first vaccines this week! They played with toys, they got snuggled, Ollie tried to steal Callie's food and made her jump! Kitten time is so much fun!

Happy Canada Day, eh!
We are closed today, but will open again on Thursday, July 2 at 9am!

Here is another lap dog! Nugget didn't want to sit on the floor alone during her check-up, so our 4th year vet student, Kaylie quickly provided a lap!

Some of you may have heard a new voice on the phone recently. This is our final year veterinary student who's been spending the past six weeks at the clinic! She has a special interest in exotic pets and has thoroughly enjoyed learning all about their care! Here she is with Nugget, who was in for a neuter and was a spectacular patient 🐰

The Public Health Agency of Canada has issued a RECALL of some Carnivora brand frozen, raw pet foods. These foods have been linked with E.coli 0157 type illness in people.

This is a reminder to be very careful if you choose to feed your pet raw pet food.

These social distancing vet visits are hard, but not for Riley.

Riley usually hates the vet, but because her Mom had to wait in the car, Riley quickly found a new friend in Dr. Rix.

Who knew that Riley is a lap dog after all!

Callie has a new friend!

Lainey meet Callie!! Callie meet Lainey!!

Have a safe and happy weekend! 😁

This is Codee Bear. Codee Bear grew a lump near his ear that needed to be removed. Codee Bear had to wear an ear bandage to keep his ear hair out of his incision. Codee Bear is not happy about it, but he's just so darned cute.

So, I've been in self-isolation for a while.... I haven't even put away the Easter decorations yet! But, I have been doing a LOT of cuddling with my stuffy friends because I can't see any of my favourite clients!

Practicing physical distancing! For our safety and yours!

Good Morning All!

We've updated our website with some notes about how we've modified our clinic to accommodate patients during this pandemic.

Due to staff shortages, we've also had to reduce our open hours to Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, starting Monday, March 23.

Vets, techs, and clinic support staff across Calgary are sticking together and working HARD to keep pets healthy and fed during this difficult time!

Wash your hands and stay healthy everyone!!

COVID-19 & Your Pet - What You Need to Know! - CriticalCareDVM

A great article to on the COVID-19 and your pets.

criticalcaredvm.com The novel coronavirus called COVID-19 is not thought to cause clinical disease in companion animals, including cats and dogs.

March is National Tick Awareness Month! Ticks can be found anywhere.

Dogs and cats have long ear canals that are warm, dark and moist, the perfect environment for yeast and bacteria to grow into a painful ear infection.

Here are some signs to look for:

1. Thick, brown or yellow discharge
(Black discharge could mean ear mites!)

2. Foul odor

3. Redness or swelling in the canal

4. Crusty scabs or sores

5. Frequent head shaking
or scratching at the ear

Alberta Veterinary Medical Association

If you have questions or would like to know more about Ticks and other external or internal parasites, please give us a call.

Ticks can be active in temperatures as low as 4 degrees celsius and can carry the bacteria that causes lyme disease in humans and pets. Therefore it's important to think of every season as tick season. To learn more about the risks associated with ticks, how to prevent bites, remove a tick and submit it for testing, reference the article below.

Contact your veterinarian if you have any questions relating to ticks or lyme disease, or if you require assistance in removal.
