Pet of the Month for May 2020

Meet Jasper! Jasper was rushed into our New Braunfels location recently because his owners found him non-responsive. Dr. Lauren Casares was there for the emergency and started treatment immediately. It is still undetermined what could have caused his condition but luckily with proper treatment Jasper came back around pretty quickly. He had a few days of strict rest and watch. The owners and Dr. Casares are keeping a close eye on Jasper and so far he is back to his hyper playful self!

Meet sweet Charlotte! She and her K9 siblings recently boarded with us and she got to stay in the Feline Condo! She loved the new cat tree we got and spent most of her day lazing on it and chirping at clients through the windows.  She is a great example of how we try to promote a low stress environment for our feline patients while they are away from home!

Pets of the Month for January 2020

Meet Lily and Finn! These two are ready to take on the new year after having to be hospitalized for eating several boxes of raisins over the holidays! Raisins are very toxic to pets as they can cause severe kidney failure! If they could make a New Years resolution, it would be to not give in to the temptations of toxic food!. Let’s hope that they can keep it!

Pet of the Month for December 2019

Dexter came to see us after having several days of not feeling well from a stomach ache. After a few diagnostics were performed, it was determined that he had eaten something causing an obstruction in his intestines. He was rushed into surgery to remove the foreign object. The object turned out to be a corncob that he had found in the yard! Today, Dexter is doing very well and has had no complications after his surgery! No corn for him, though!

Pet of the Month for November 2019

Gunnar is a young handsome Australian Shepherd that came to see us because he was hit by a car. He is loved and adored by all. So much even that we have never had so many visitors for one patient! We can understand because he is so sweet! He had some trouble breathing and we discovered he had Pneumothorax (air that leaks into the space between the lungs and the chest wall secondary to trauma).  We sent him to the Specialist to release the air pressure. Since then he is back to his normal self feeling great!  He now gets around on a splint but there is no stopping him! We are so grateful he is feeling better!

Pet of the Month for September 2019

Zippity – Do – Dah! Aka Zipper 🙂 Zipper is a 5 year old adorable Brown & White Spotted Dachshund.  In our opinion, the best little small breed there is 😉  Zipper came to us for having vomiting and diarrhea for a month (Insert poor baby).  We did multiple medications and diagnostics.  He even had to be Hospitalized for a couple days.  He was not wanting to eat any food, NOT EVEN CHICKEN!  I know, shocker!  We had to do a special test called a Barium Test, which meant getting him to take a chalky substance orally  and doing multiple Radiographs.  Just right before he was going to be sent to the Specialist for further testing…he got better…yeah!!! Throughout the entire treatment he had the best attitude.  He would always love attention and belly rubs.  As soon as you would open the cage door he immediately rolls on his back for a nice tummy rub.  We are so glad he is back to his old self!

Pet of the Month for August 2019

Hi my name is Trinket! I recently came to the clinic for an exam and some routine lab work. My mom takes great care of me! Dr. Casares called my mom back the next day with some results from my bloodwork and urinalysis. My lab work showed that I may be diabetic! I came back in for a few more tests just to be sure. Turns out, within just a short amount of time my body decided that it was not going to make enough insulin. My mom and I have been working closely with Dr. Casares to ensure that my blood sugar is more regulated. I have been feeling better and am thankful that my mom brought me in to see the doctor!

OUR BUBBA BOY! Bubba is an almost 4 year old full bred German Shepherd. Weighing in at a whopping 96.0 lbs.! He comes to visit us alongside his little Corgi sister, Jamie. Lately, Bubba has been feeling very itchy. Allergies are very common around these Hill Country parts. To try and give him some relief, we are actually doing Allergy Testing that we send to the lab. They test his blood for all types of different allergens (food, environment, etc.) to see exactly what he is reacting to so that we can make him feel better. His lab results are pending and soon we will have a better solution to help his allergies longterm!
