Helping Your Dog Survive the Holidays will be given by Tristan Rehner, Certified Professional Dog Trainer and Certified Behavior Consultant Canine (CBCC) of Pet Behavior Aid on December 17th at 7:00 PM in the AHNA Education Room. This free people-only session will give you information to help you understand your dog’s behavior and skills to help your pet negotiate the challenges presented by the hustle and bustle of the holidays.

Our Annual Holiday Food Drive is off to a great start, but due to the short period of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, we are extending our deadline for donations until New Year’s Eve! Thank you to all the generous clients who have donated so far! As you can see in the picture, food and treats have been coming in at a rapid pace.  We are thrilled because this food means there will be fewer hungry pets in Buncombe County.

Once again, the staff members of Animal Hospital of North Asheville have provided Christmas presents for several of Buncombe County's foster children. All of us here at Animal Hospital of North Asheville really enjoy being able to make the holidays brighter for these deserving children.

As we look back on 2013, we are grateful for our blessings even as we acknowledge our losses. Losing Dr. Riggle after 33 years due to illness and Dr. Earley after 15 years due to his need to care for family in West Virginia has saddened all of us, but we are thankful that a great team of experienced veterinarians remains.
