What started out as a routine recheck for a quiet heart murmur found at her annual visit in May turned into a life-threatening emergency visit for sweet Mia, an 11-year-old Greyhound. I found a grade 2/6 heart murmur during an annual comprehensive wellness visit in May. Because this was a new finding, I recommended that we have the heart murmur rechecked within 3-4 months.

On a chilly evening in February, Animal Hospital of North Asheville got a call that a critically ill two-month-old puppy was being transferred to our care. This was the second puppy that had come to us for burn treatments in a span of just one year.

“More than anything else, for the rest of my life I will miss his daily reminder that it is possible to live this way all day, every day, under every circumstance life can throw at anyone privileged enough to have a beating heart.” ~ Chris Derienzo, MD

In the past several years there has been an increase in severe weather. Recently hurricanes like Irma, Ivan, Harvey and Katrina have devastated areas. Wildfires like the Party Rock wildfire and the Gatlinburg wildfires forced families to leave their homes. Severe weather is not limited to wildfires and hurricanes; tornadoes, earthquakes, house fires, flooding and severe winter weather can force families to flee for safety. Many times families may not have a chance to prepare. They just need to grab and go. That is why it is important to have an escape plan for people and pets.

When my husband and I moved back to Asheville almost two years ago, we were excited to see so many black bears in our neighborhood. I would run outside with my phone and snap pictures and video to post on social media whenever one ambled through the yard or down the road. It felt like nature was adapting to the increasing presence of people in the western North Carolina mountains. The bears were learning to coexist peaceably with the suburbs.  
 
Fast forward to this past summer, and the bears no longer seem to be coexisting quite so...

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.
