Pet of the Month for January 2020

This is Roxy! She is a spunky 8 year old dachshund mix that had a Cystotomy performed here by Dr. Jacobs. Roxy had been dealing with bladder stones for a few months that kept causing her to have chronic Urinary Tract Infections. At first Dr Jacobs recommended a non invasive option that could possibly help dissolve the stones, a prescription diet. Roxy was given the prescription diet called “Royal Canin SO”. This veterinary-exclusive dry dog food was developed to nutritionally support an adult dog’s urinary tract and bladder health. It increases the amount of urine your dog produces to help dilute excess minerals that can cause crystals and stones. Unfortunately, the urinary tract infections started to become a lot more often so Dr. Jacobs recommended surgical removal of the stones. Roxy successfully went through and recovered from surgery and is now back to her spunky self!

Pet of the Month for November 2019

Meet Chester! Chester was not feeling well one day and his mom was concerned. Chester was not eating and just laying around. After an exam it turned out he had a high fever and wounds along his chest and abdomen area. The wounds resembled a possible snake bite. With some time, it became more evident that that must have been the case. Chester’s skin was injured from the bite and took some time to heal. He had to have a few surgeries and his mom had to spend a lot of time taking care of his wounds. We are glad to say he is healing nicely and is on the mend! Watch out for those snakes out there!

Hi there, my name is Billie! I am a 1 year old female Border Collie and I love to play! I recently came in for my check up and got vaccines and yearly tests done to keep me healthy and happy. Thankfully, Dr. Jacobs said that my exam went great and I passed with “flying colors,” whatever that means! I love playing with my toys, and I especially LOVE treats! I am full of energy and can eat and play for hours, but for some reason dad won’t let me. Oh, and I also love my naps. It’s a hard life being a puppy.
