Halloween can be a frightening time for pet owners across the country. It can be scary for our furry friends too. The AmericanAnimal Hospital Association encourages pet owners to protect their four-legged family members this October by being mindful of their F.E.A.R. – food, environment, attire, and recovery.

Food

Halloween means candy and tasty treats are plentiful and easily accessible to young children and pets. Candy, especially chocolate, is toxic to animals and can cause vomiting, restlessness,...

Recently on my way to work at AHNA, I was horrified to see a cat hit by a car along I-26. I immediately stopped to see if I could help, and unfortunately the poor kitty was already dead.

We hoped that the recommended infusions, aerating of the soil, feedings, and...

Project Connect is an annual one day event that is held in conjunction with the VA Stand Down. The aim of Project Connect is to provide onsite barrier-free services to the homeless population of Asheville-Buncombe while facilitating community awareness and participation. Although Project connect had tried to help the...
