Throughout the year, we offer in-hospital continuing education for our staff and veterinarians. This past month, Dr. Michelle Foote presented our Annual CPR and Emergency Care training.
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!
Have you ever watched your cat breathe? What a silly question! But the fact is, most of us don’t really watch how our cats breathe on a regular basis. Normally, cats breathe about 20 times per minute, and their breathing is smooth, silent, and almost imperceptible unless they’re purring. When there is something wrong in the lungs, there are some changes that you can watch out for:

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.
Asheville Humane Society’s Paw It Forward Campaign raised over $31,800 to help needy pets in our community! Your generosity helped TEAM Animal Hospital of North Asheville raise over $4,100 for Paw It Forward. Thank you!
Always keep an ID tag on your pet! This is one of the quickest ways to help your pet find his or her way back home.
Be safe! No single ID is fail-safe. Use more than one method of identification.
Chip your pet! Microchip your pet and keep your contact information current.
We will be closed on Tuesday, July 4th in observance of Independence Day so our AHNA staff can spend time with loved ones. We will maintain normal hours before and after the 4th.
By the age of four, half of cats have a painful condition called Tooth Resorption in one or more teeth. As cats age beyond four years old, it is estimated that 75% or more suffer from this painful condition.
