Radiographs, or x-rays, are a very common diagnostic tool that we have at our disposal. It can give us a lot of different information! We use x-rays to give us information about all areas of the body, and can help us diagnose things like pneumonia, fractures, bladder stones, intestinal blockages, amongst (many many) other things!

Today Rosie had some x-rays done, and she was more than happy to allow us to snap some pictures! She was the perfect patient ❤️

We are heading into the Canada Day long weekend! We hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday!

If you do find yourself needing emergency care for your pet, know that we are here 24/7.

What can you do to help avoid an ER visit?
- Be mindful of the heat. Keep pets indoors or cooler areas, and ensure they have plenty of fresh water.
- Ensure you have enough long term medications to get through the weekend.
- Careful in group dog settings - we see a lot of dog bite wounds on weekends like this.
- Do not allow your pet to indulge in all the Canada Day BBQ goodies - they can become quite sick!
- If there is any question whether or not your pet needs to be seen, call us at 825-480-4881.

Things to remember:
- We work on a triage system. Your pet will be evaluated by a Registered Veterinary Technologist. If stable, they will wait in line to see the Veterinarian. The most critical and unstable pets are seen first, regardless of what order they arrived in.
- It is often quite busy in the ER on a long weekend, and this may translate to extended wait times. Our staff are here to care for your pets, instead of enjoying the long weekend with family and friends. Be kind to everyone, at all times.

We are located at 11212 178St NW.

Meet Lilly! Lilly came in feeling pretty sorry for herself. She was vomiting and having diarrhea, and getting dehydrated. She had some diagnostics done, and was admitted to the hospital for IV fluids and medications. Her symptoms subsided, she started eating, and we were able to send her home to her mom!

Needless to say, we loved cuddling this little squishy face ❤️

Oscar and Thomas came to see us a few weeks ago after unfortunately being involved in a house fire. They were both admitted. Oscar rallied quite quickly, but Thomas had a more lengthy recovery. They were eventually both discharged back to their family ❤️

National Pet Month may be over, but we have more pets for you to meet! Today we have Dr. Abbott’s gang!

“Tom (pictured left) is our 3 year old golden retriever, the big brother! He absolutely loves his family - dog, cats and humans included. But his favourite thing in the world is either the ball or the frisbee (depends on the day). He is one of the goofiest guys!

Edie (pictured right) is our 2 year old golden, and a very typical annoying little sister. She is all puppy. When she isn’t tormenting her brother, however, her sweet side comes out and she just loves to snuggle with her humans. Her favourite thing? Food.

Bonnie is our 8 year old rescue cat, and she has been in the family since she was a kitten. She is playful, cuddly, and a mouse hunter extraordinaire! She loves her dogs, and can often be found playing with Tom or Edie.

Wilson is also 8 years old, and was a rescue who came to the family two years ago now. He had a broken jaw, but he doesn’t let that stop him from being astoundingly handsome. For Wilson, food is life. He enjoys his cat food, but also second breakfast with the dogs each morning.”

We have another group of staff pets to introduce you to today, from tech Jamie!

“Sadie is my 10.5 year old black lab mix. She has such a sweet, gentle personality and loves being a mama to kittens I have bottle fed over the years.  She loves going for walks with her best friends, Sammi and Stitch.  She also loves bird & rabbit watching on her adventures and swimming!

Sammi is a 6 year old shih tzu mix who was rescued at 2 years age, and it was an instant "love at first site" when he met Sadie. He also loves going on adventures scoping out the bunnies and doing puzzle games for enrichment!  Together, their favorite treats are watermelon, blueberries, celery, peppers, cucumber, lettuce, and cheese!

Furby is a 16 year old shih tzu mix who is living out her retired life.  She loves cuddles, going for short walks, and relaxing in the sun!

Reilly is a 4 year old ragdoll siamese mix.  When she is not being your shadow, she loves cuddles, soaking up the sun, playing with catnip toys and posing for photos!

Bug is 12 years old and her personality is starting to shine after living in her new home for a year.  Her favorite treats are temptations and loves snuggles from her cat dad!”

It is still National Pet Month, and we still have some ADORABLE staff pets to introduce you to! Today is Wanda and Boo who belong to tech Jessica!

“Wanda and Boo are litter mates that my fiancé and I adopted from a friends farm when they were 12 weeks old!

Wanda is our little black and white girl who we call our little Moo cow. She’s scared of most things in the world, except when her food bowl is full. Her favourite pastimes are napping on her dads legs and waking mom up for ….. more food.

Boo is our tabby girl who thoroughly enjoys being outside and will not hesitate to tell us when she thinks she should be allowed outside. Her favourite pastimes are napping on the fuzziest blanket she can find and wrestling with her sister any chance she gets.

They are both little angels and we love them so much!”

Carla from our client care team would like you to meet her two cute cats today! ❤️

“Introducing Leo (left) and Lea (right). They are my “Irish twins” born two months apart. Each were rescues who instantly stole my heart. Mr. Leo is calm, caring, snuggly and patient. He enjoys grooming himself and Lea, watching birds and catching bugs in his catio. He gives the best snuggles. Miss Lea is super saucy. She loves car rides, eating (more than she should), stealing Leo’s food, playing with toys, bugging Leo, but most of all she loves being her moms side kick. She gives the best snuggles when she wants to and likes to play in her catio.”

Brace yourselves for tech assistant Kennedy’s dog Linus! He will steal your heart instantly!

“Linus (aka. Handsome) is a 3 year old mini dachshund! A true firecracker, Linus lives up to the chaotic dachshund demeanour, and his mom wouldn’t want it any other way! His silly personality, bigger than life, keeps his family entertained at all times. His favourite things to do are to go adventuring in the mountains, kayaking, and going for runs. He also enjoys a good nap!”

Two new fur kids for you all today, from Jessie in client care!

“These are my 2 little girls who I have known since Luna was born and Georgie was a week old. Luna (tabby) chose me when I was going through a tough time. Now in her terrible 2s. She is the sweetest mamas girl ever. She is not a fan of other people. She is glued to me when I'm home and follows me everywhere. She loves her cat nip and is a food gremlin. She loves her llama knit toy filled with cat nip. She loves watching the geese, the minute she hears them she runs to the window. She is a very weird little girl but fits right in with her mom.

Georgie( grey) aka chonkasauras rex, is well in her own world all the time. When she was taken in, we thought she wouldn't make it. She'd now 2 and a happy girl. She is not like any other cat I've experience. She will walk into a room and forget why she's there, every time. She loves belly rubs and always looks mad. She's not it's just her face. On a very rare occasion she will play with her plastic springs, and her lazer toy I have set up for them that goes off every few hours. She is not light on her feet and has 0 personal space. She is a very special girl and knows it.”

We have some more cuties for you, for National Pet Month! Meet the fur kids of tech Jessi!

“This trio belong to Jessi who is currently on Mat Leave. Lylah is the first child and is 9 years old and was aquired after her other cat passed away. She is a total snuggle bug and will cuddle anyone for hours on end. She seeks out peanut butter, salt and vinegar chips and marshmallows when left out.

Ecko is the middle child, she is 7 years old and came from the Edmonton Humane Society after her 1st year of tech school. Her cute mustache could not be passed up. She used to be terrified and hid all the time but over the past 3 years has come a long way. She doesn't like human food but likes to lick odd objects like walls, toilets, plastic bags etc.

Jager is is 6 years old and is the baby of the family he was adopted from Out of the Woods near Peace River at the end of her 2nd year of tech school. He looked like the cutest husky pup at the time but his looks and colors changed a lot. He is a very lazy boy and doesn't enjoy things most dogs do. He spends most of his days sleeping on the couch in weird positions and making weird faces (see pictured).

They also have a 4 year old crested gecko named Swarley who is named after a reference from How I Met Your Mother.”

We have some adorable pets for you for National Pet Month today, coming to you from our own TA Juliane!

“Zoey
She is sweet and loving. Will give you all of the kisses if you let her. Swimming is her favourite. We leave her in charge when leaving the house.

Miley
She came in like a wrecking ball. She is a crazy pants, our 3 legged rescue. Loud, boisterous and hilarious.

Atlas
He thinks he's a dog. He's always asking for food. A big snuggle bug and loves Zoey.

Meadow
She's the shy one. Would prefer to watch life from her perch. Always curious and follows us from room to room.”

We are absolutely LOVING getting to know more about our staff pets this month for National Pet Month - we hope you all are too! 🥰

Now it’s time to meet tech Jessica’s furry family!

“Johnny B is turning 6 this summer. He was an excellent ring bearer for his mom and dad’s wedding last summer. Fun fact: JB is a retired show dog and was a puppy champion!

Hamish is a 12 year old handsome man (dark red tabby). He loves his dad more than he loves his mom and lives for honeysuckle toys.

Tucker is 2 years old and is a tiny guy (brown tabby). He loves any toy that makes noise and that he can carry in his mouth to play fetch with!

Mina is a 2 year old professional bad girl (medium hair ginger). Her favourite activities are eating, counter surfing and giving kisses to everyone else in the house.

Bartholo-Mew is 1 year old (grey). He was bottle fed by Jess along with his 4 siblings. He was very behind on his development and has some special birth defects so he stayed with his tech mama. Bart loves to go out and about in his stroller!”

Let’s meet Red and Mickey, who belong to our very own Dr. Robyn Geers!

“I was lucky to be given Red by my first boss who had a litter of 9 puppies and couldn’t keep all 9! He is calm - so calm we entered him into the hospital therapy dog program but he also loves an outdoor adventure. Likes: Scratches and finding water to swim in. Dislikes: Nothing, he is a Golden! Although he does just tolerate baths. He can be followed on instagram. Everybody thinks their pet is the best, and guess what, everybody is right :)

Mickey is a Ragdoll kitty that was gifted to me. He has shown me that I am actually a cat person after all. Is incredibly good a being very cute and putting up with our Golden Retriever trying to play with him and incredibly bad at not shedding. We are lucky to have him in our family.”

National Pet Month post time, and we have some cute kitties for you today, belonging to tech Veronica!

Pictured first: Bub!
“The golden child. He is 10 years old and is the most perfect boy. He loves to sunbathe and spend his afternoons playing in the backyard. He definitely prefers his Dad to his Mom even though his mom raised him from when he was 2 years old (rude). He was adopted from EHS and has lived a very spoiled life. His only negative trait is that he humps blankets when his parents leave him alone in the house lol.”

Pictured second: Felix!
“A literal demon on this earth. Truly hates everything and everyone. Will bite your face and draw blood. His redeeming qualities are that he is extremely adorable and truly hilarious, he zooms faster than any cat I’ve seen and he loves to beat up on his stuffed goat named Goaty. Occasionally will snuggle with his parents depending on how he is feeling that day. He is 11 months old and was adopted from WHARF.”

“Nelly (4 years) and Kimber (1 year) are my beloved German Wirehaired Pointers. Their goofy personalities provide us with endless entertainment. Nelly is quite accident prone and one of her favorite pastimes is using her pet insurance 🙃 They are both very social and enjoy being around their people, playing ball, participating in Barn Hunt, and playing in their pools in the summer months.”

Today we have the pleasure of meeting tech Kristen’s dogs!

“Hudson is a 11 year old golden retriever. This sweet old man is no joke in the snuggle department and if you ask him there is no such thing as personal space. His favourite things are hiking, camping, swimming and most of all canoe rides. He doesn’t let his age slow him down one bit!

Waylon is a 4 year old Bernese mountain dog mix. This handsome boy is a homebody and enjoys the finer things in life. He does not believe in physical activity but might be persuaded if you can provide good snacks and weather permitting. He is not afraid to let his opinions be heard in fact he insist on it.”
