Our goal is to teach you what you need to know to help your pet. As much as we wish we could include your pet in our free help sessions, they are for humans only, so please leave all those sweet and wonderful pets at home.

These Help Sessions are free to the public on a first come, first seated basis. Please be aware that Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be seeing patients while the Help Session is in progress, so some of our parking will be reserved for the families of patients needing care. Thank you for understanding.

The dog days of summer are here. The sun is shining and outdoor activities are in high swing. One thing most people don’t remember is that it’s time to make sure your pet is protected from the sun. That’s right - our furry friends, just like us, can suffer from the damaging effects from the sun’s powerful rays.

Excess sun exposure can be painful, can lead to sunburns, and increases the risk of certain types of skin cancer. The sun gives off different kinds of ultraviolet rays: UVB and UVA. UVB rays can cause sunburns and UVA can cause certain types of skin cancer.
