Congratulations to the dedicated participants who brought their canine companions to Dog-Ed's recent Saturday training classes taught by Jenny White, CPDT-KA. Families and their canine counterparts worked together to learn valuable life skills and basic manners. Jenny White makes each class fun while teaching techniques to set the families up for success. We, at the Animal Hospital of North Asheville, are very proud of these wonderful families who not only built skills in their companion but also enjoyed the time bonding with their dogs.
We are excited to have a new product available at Animal Hospital of North Asheville for those who need either more control or less pulling (or both) when walking their dog. We now offer the Freedom No-Pull Harness which is not a head halter but looks much like a traditional dog harness. While head halters work well for many dogs and the people walking them, some dogs fight wearing them. We are happy to have found the Freedom No-Pull Harness which dogs find comfortable, is difficult to slip out of, and best of all, it is easy to learn to put on.

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.
We so greatly appreciate your votes in the Mountain Xpress Best of WNC poll! Once again we have been voted the #1 Veterinarian in WNC! It means a great deal to all of us to be recognized for the work we do. Thank you!
