Happy New Year one and all!  The beginning of a new year is a natural time to reflect on our blessings and plan the upcoming year. First of all, we are so thankful to have such wonderful, caring and kind clients!  We were treated like royalty during the holidays with so many goodies coming in for our staff.  Thank you so much!

Whether at home, or during hospitalization for a medical or surgical disorder, life-threatening medical emergencies can develop at any time in our animal companions.   At AHNA, we recognize the need to be prepared for such events and take pride in being ready to intervene in a prompt and professional matter should such a need arise.

As ward nurses at Animal Hospital of North Asheville, we think we have the most rewarding job of all! We get to be with our dear patients all day long. Yes, there are  a lot of very important, even life-saving tasks that we are responsible for, but we get to form a relationship with each patient and be the caregiver while they are very sick and need more care than the family can perform at home.   We are there for them for whatever they need and they come to trust us and know that we really, really care about them.

Last summer, Alisha Suer and her family spent a day fishing in the Louisiana bayou. Pleased with their catch, everyone piled into the family vehicle, a Lincoln Navigator, and Alisha’s stepfather started the engine.

“There was a terrible sound, very loud,” said Alisha. “My stepdad immediately stopped the car and got out to see what was the matter. He slid underneath the car, began fiddling around with things, and much to our surprise, and horror, a kitten fell down from the engine. My stepdad immediately scooped him up and we rushed the kitten to the nearest veterinarian.”
