Gus and Kola, along with their families participated in the most recent Dog Training Classes held at Animal Hospital of North Asheville on Saturdays in our Education Room. Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed worked with the families to help them become skilled at loose leash walking, along with helping their dogs focus during distractions and strengthen their mechanical and motivational skills so future walks will be more pleasurable. All the hard work and success the families achieved in 4 short weeks shows. Way to go!

Cats have a tendency to hide when they’re not feeling well, so it can be challenging to detect or see subtle changes in your cat. Their survival instinct gives them a unique ability to cover a painful condition, and, because cats are such masters at hiding pain, it’s a good idea to follow an established timeline for veterinary examinations.

There are several infectious organisms that cause dogs to cough, but Canine Influenza generally causes more than a cough.
Animal Hospital of North Asheville is delighted to welcome three caring and compassionate animal lovers to our team. We are already wondering how we ever got along without them. Please join with us and welcome, Anne, Mandy and Jean!
