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! 🐈🐈🐈

Chillin' at the vets!

Angel was supposed to be getting a physical exam, but she somehow wrangled a belly rub from Dr. Rix. Purr, purr, purr. The belly rub continued for a quite a while.

Our 4th year vet student, Julie, fell in love with Molly. We hope that Molly is feeling better nowπŸ₯°

Midna has a blast with Callie's toys

This is what happens when a pipsqueak steals Callie's toys. WAAAYY more entertaining. Callie is too embarassed to play this hard now!

This is Midna. Aren't her ear tufts great! She didn't even care that she got vaccines. Toys made up for everything!

It is going to be a hot week! πŸΎβ˜€οΈ

With a slow return to "normalcy" keep your best pal in mind. A lot of us have spent more time with our canine companions in the last 5 months. A sudden change in their usual routine can create separation anxiety. Here are some great tips.

Vets anticipate rise in separation anxiety as dog owners return to work

Worth a read!

ctvnews.ca Dr. Ian Sandler, a Toronto-based veterinarian, expects separation anxiety among dogs -- and cats, to a lesser extent -- as people return to work after months at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It's Meeeeee! Some time has passed, but I am here to let you know I am keeping safe, nestled inside the clinic. Things are different now, but my humans here are still taking great care of me, and all the furry critters that come to visit the clinic. #yyc #tortiesofinstagram #cliniccat #callieourcliniccat #falconridgeanimalhospital

Happy Summer Everyone!
We are closed on Monday, August 3 for Heritage Day!

We want to say a big THANK YOU to all of our lovely clients for being kind and gentle with us during COVID-19.

It has been really HARD not seeing our people! WE MISS YOU! But we love seeing your pets inside the clinic.

THANK YOU for being so accommodating with our COVID protocols that help keep everyone safe. We appreciate the respect and thoughtfulness that you've shown us during this time!

- Jamie, Jackie, Megan, Dr. Rix, Zeanna, Nicole, Dr. Mortier, Mallory, Dr. Crittenden--

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 🐰

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!

Lainey meet Callie!! Callie meet Lainey!!
