We’d like to introduce you to Bindi, a precious Maltese who has been through a lot in her 6 years of life. When you read her story, you might think that she would hate coming to the animal hospital, or that she would be depressed. But Bindi reminds us that the right attitude can bring gratitude.

Bindi first came to us as a 2-pound ball of adorable white fluff in November of 2012. Her puppyhood was normal except that she had some squinting and discharge in her right eye, and she had a few episodes of unexplainable pain. Over the first year of her life, it became more evident that...

With the holidays fast approaching, now is the time to think about looking for a pet sitter or a kennel if you will be leaving your pets over the holiday. Take time for meet and greet appointments to see how your cat or dog reacts to the person. Take your pet for a test run at the kennel for a few hours, half day or overnight to see how they do.

It could be the difference between life and death.

For all who attended the 15th Annual Taste of Compassion, it was a night of amazing local food and drink, fun music, and adorable animals looking for their forever homes. Local celebrities Joy the cat and Miss B (formerly known as Miss Buttersworth) the dog dressed in their best along with the partygoers. It was a great time, but most of all it was a night of compassion and generosity. Local businesses donated wonderful prizes, items, artworks, and adventures. Attendees bid during a live auction with all proceeds going to the Asheville Humane Society. $166,783 was raised!

Blah! Blah! It’s scary out there—all those pets dressed up as dinosaurs, lions, and spiders. And if you dress up your pet, you’re not alone, as more than 4.2 million dog-owning households and nearly two million cat caretakers will be treating their furry (and costumed) companions to ghoulish goodies and grisly toys this Halloween, according to the National Retail Federation.

Pet parents will spend...

October is known for fall, football and sweaters but did you know that it is also Pet Obesity Awareness Month? Each year Dr. Ernie Ward and the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP) collects basic weight data from across the United States and compiles the results to estimate how prevalent pet obesity is in the U.S. There is no personal data collected; instead the study is data collected in terms of weight comparison from pet families and veterinarians. They also look at what diseases are prevalent in under and overweight pets.
