"In 2001 a very special little kitten came to stay at our house named Emma. She weighed in at a whopping 2 ½ pounds. When she was about 9 months old she began vomiting and wouldn’t eat. The doctors at Piney Creek Square Veterinary Clinic took x-rays, but nothing showed up on them. She was losing weight, and she was thin by nature anyway, so everyone was worried about her. Dr. Behrns came to the rescue and performed emergency surgery on our little girl. She found an almond trying to pass into Emma’s stomach. Of course, it would not have shown up on an x-ray. Thank you, Dr. Behrns, for saving Emma’s life."

Seasonal Tips for Spring

Not all pets can deal with the heat. Dogs like the Boston Terrier, Bulldog, Lhasa Apso, Pekingnese and Pug (brachycephalic/short-nosed breeds), to name a few, are ineffectual panters and have more difficulty when it comes to panting to keep cool. Overweight and elderly dogs, especially those with laryngeal paralysis, are more prone to overheat as well.
