Thank you to our wonderful clients for being so understanding during the shortage of Sentinel and Interceptor. As you know, it is very important to have your pet on a preventative for heartworms, hookworms, roundworms and whipworms twelve months a year!  We have prescribed Sentinel for years to prevent heartworms, intestinal parasites including whipworms, and fleas.  Interceptor has been prescribed as a cheaper alternative to prevent heartworms and intestinal parasites including whipworms (but Interceptor does not prevent fleas).

At Animal Hospital of North Asheville, we strive to care for all of your pet's health needs, but we realize that there are some challenges, such as behavioral issues, that may require a team-based approach.  For many behavior problems, a treatment plan that includes medical evaluation, behavior modification, and drug therapy is needed.  In other cases, problem-specific training is needed along with general obedience training. In some cases of ongoing behavioral issues, you may benefit from calling on  Kim Brophey.

Halloween is so much fun, and it’s natural to want to try to involve your family pet in all the activity. It’s important to keep in mind, though, that not all Halloween activities are fun or safe for pets. A few simple precautions can keep your spooky celebrations enjoyable for everyone in the family, whether they are two footed or four footed.
