My pet is having trouble breathing – What do I do?

          Dana Dietrich, DVM Emergency Veterinarian   Difficulty breathing is a common emergency encountered by veterinarians in small animal medicine.

Thanks NRA!

Thanks NRA!

Thanks NRA! Gun Nut Kills Two Brothers He Mistakenly Believed Were On His Property A “responsible gun owning” West Virginia man with a large stockpile of weapons in his house apparently decided that it was time to use some of them. So when two men showed up at an outbuilding near his house in the town of Barboursville, he decided to blast them away, with no warning whatsoever. No “Hey, you are trespassing, get off my property!” No calling the police to let them handle it, no nothing. ... Full Story

Your New Puppy and Parvo

Your New Puppy and Parvo

  Danielle Huval, DVM Emergency Clinician Supervisor   Having a new puppy is such a fun time for a family. Showing them off to friends and family, teaching them to walk on a leash, and socializing with other dogs are important steps to forming a great lifelong relationship. First visits to the veterinarian are packed full of information, which can be overwhelming. At an early age, puppies are vaccinated against many viruses, with Parvovirus, more commonly referred to as Parvo, being one ... Full Story

Gun Fail XLVII

  'I can do anything I want on my property!' he screamed, and fired three more rounds. GunFAIL XLVIII   One of the lightest weeks in child shootings in recent memory. Congratulations, America!

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way of just shutting the flow off completely, but it's nice to finally see less than a half dozen or so. Also coming in on the low side were home invasion shootings, GunFAIL ... Full Story

Puppies as Presents

Puppies as Presents

    Crystal Connor, DVM Emergency Veterinarian As the holidays are fast approaching, there are many who will consider adopting or purchasing a puppy as a present. While I believe being a pet owner can result in many rewards, bringing a dog into the family is a decision that should be made with careful consideration. After all, this is not an object to be unwrapped, admired for a short time, and then tossed to the side as another gift may be. It is a living being that has medical ... Full Story
