One evening we received a phone call about a kitten who accidentally had his back toes caught by a rolling office chair, and now his back toes were bleeding. Just barely 5 weeks old and weighing only one pound, Squirt was a little ball of orange fluff with a big personality. Squirt quickly proved he was a brave little kitten.

Dr. Frye quickly assessed that Squirt had a degloving injury to one of his rear toes. A degloving injury is also called an avulsion which is a type of severe injury that happens when the top layers of the skin and tissue are ripped from the underlying muscle,...

Many of us have been lucky enough to share a special bond with one or more pets. Each one has something special and unique about them. So we asked - "Why do you love your pet?" in our first ever "Why Do You Love Your Pet" original artwork contest.

We were very impressed with all the talented artists who submitted artwork and what makes their pet special.  We wanted to share our finalists and their inspirations.

With the legalization of cannabis in parts of the United States, we have seen an increase in marijuana poisoning in our patients. Recreational and medical cannabis is available in a wide range of products such as smokables, oils, and edibles, which can increase the chance of pet exposure. Many people may not realize that prescription medical cannabis products contain not only the CBD (cannabidiol) but a high level of THC which is harmful to pets.

Dogs are attracted to these products and tend to be able to sniff them out and consume them. Dogs are more sensitive to the psychotropic...

If you were to go by all the talk about “dog people” versus “cat people,” you’d think that everyone had to choose one and stick to it. They don’t, of course; plenty of us have both cats and dogs and despite their differences, it seems to work out. If you want to ensure a good relationship, though, science says to focus on the cat’s needs.

A recent study surveyed owners mostly in the United Kingdom and the United States, asking detailed questions about how their cats and dogs got along. The majority of the 748 owners thought their pets had pretty good relationships. On a scale of 1...

Bonnie is a happy-go-lucky girl who loves playing with tennis balls. Bonnie has rarely ever been spotted without a ball... or two... or three in her mouth. She lives to play fetch and tug and find it. When no one is available to play, she takes her balls to bed with her for a nap. She even enjoys wearing Elizabethan collars when necessary so she can still keep her balls close, even when she drops them! One day her family noticed her jaws chattering when she picked up one of her balls. This can be a sign of dental pain, so we scheduled Bonnie for a dental cleaning.
