Norm and Rudy - owned by Certified Veterinary Technician Kelly Brown, RVT

How many cats are rescued, live in an animal hospital where they are spoiled rotten, and get to save lives in return? We only know of two, Norm and Rudy, and this is their story.

Fleas are amazingly resilient!  A female flea can lay 40 eggs daily (280 weekly), which fall off of the dog or cat as they are laid and end up in carpet or cracks in the floor. It is likely that even the most protected pet will get one (or more) fleas yearly. Of the flea life stages, egg, larva, pupa and adult, the pupa can remain dormant for months.

Laura and Spanky Miceli adopted Benson from the Asheville Humane Society. “The Humane Society tried to find him a home for 7 months before we adopted him. The shelter normally isn’t able to keep dogs for such a long time, but I’m so glad they did. We adopted Benson and took him home and since then he has been the best dog, and the naughtiest dog!”

Benson is highly intelligent and mischievous, as you will see if you CLICK HERE to watch his video.

What does it mean when our mission statement says that we strive to see our actions through the eyes of our patients and to “minimize separation from the people they love” The “separation from the people they love” part is pretty simple. It means that we know your pet wants to be with you and for that reason you are always welcome to accompany your pet anywhere in the hospital. Of course, there are a few times you cannot be in the same room due to safety concerns, such as when your pet is having an x-ray taken or when your pet is receiving some of our chemotherapy treatments.
