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.
WLOS recently came to Animal Hospital of North Asheville unsolicited and filmed a segment on Canine Influenza. Before you watch the segment, we would like to clarify that dogs not previously vaccinated with bivalent vaccine for H3N2 and H3N8 Canine Influenza require a series of two vaccinations two to four weeks apart at a total cost of $79.

We’ve reached the time of year when thunderstorms are frequent, and July 4th fireworks are happening soon. For many pets, loud noises and storms are not a big deal, but for others, it is a time filled with fear, stress, and even destructive behavior. We’ve learned that there is no one perfect way to manage every case of noise phobia, even in our own pets. Here are some of our stories:
Dr. Jim Earley is using different combinations of prescription medication for his three dogs affected by storm phobia:
“Storms can be a real nightmare for pets who are...

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 weather is warming up, even in the high country. You and your dog are tired of the same route around the neighborhood, even if the turkeys and rabbits do make it more interesting now that it’s Spring. Time to head to the trails!
In April, the staff at Animal Hospital of North Asheville was treated to lunch and a talk about the "Importance of Nutrition" by Dr. Michelle Turner.
Springtime means warm weather, long days, and more opportunities to get out in the woods or in our yards. Unfortunately, spring also means more opportunities for humans and their pets to encounter snakes. The most common poisonous snake in Western North Carolina is the copperhead, although rattlesnakes, water moccasins and coral snakes are also seen in the area.
Copperheads spend most of their time in cover, including wood piles, rock piles, tall grass, piles of leaves, or thickets. According to the Ohio Public Library...
Sunshine, warmer weather, and fresh air are things we love about spring. We can finally open the windows, air out the house, and clean off the dust from winter. It is time to refresh and renew. Spring cleaning is a perfect time to clean pet collars, leashes, toys, and beds. It is also the perfect time to clean out the car!
If you have a dog, you know the dreaded deed of removing pet hair from fabric. No matter how hard you try, those pesky hairs have made their home and are entwined in your upholstery....
