Thanksgiving is a great holiday! It gives us an opportunity to gather for a wonderful meal with our family and friends, but it also is a wonderful occasion to reflect on all of the blessings that we are grateful for. In addition to our individual gratitude, all of us at Animal Hospital of North Asheville are grateful for….

YOU – our wonderful clients! You love your pets as part of your family, and you entrust their care to us. Whether you’re a new member of our family or you’ve been coming here since we opened in 1977, we couldn’t do what we do without you....

At the Animal Hospital of North Asheville, we are always learning! Throughout the year, our veterinarians, management, client care and patient care team members spend countless hours learning via in-house, online and off-site continuing education opportunities and veterinary conferences. October was no exception as several of our veterinarians attended national veterinary conferences throughout the United States.

In early October, Doctors Paul Duncan and Susan Wootten attended the Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference in New Jersey. This week-long educational conference offered...

Whether you and your pets are new to AHNA, or if you’ve been seeing us for years, you have probably noticed we do things a little differently here. Treats are offered generously, pets are examined on soft, cozy blankets instead of cold metal tables, and you’re welcome to accompany your pet nearly everywhere they go in the hospital. These are examples of our efforts to reduce any discomfort, fear, anxiety and stress that your pet may experience during their visit. Although AHNA has been thinking along these lines for many years, there’s now a world-wide initiative that offers ...

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 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.
