Feline Asthma

When I heard the diagnosis I was beside myself. Cats are naturally agile, independent, stealthy, ornery, daring ninjas of furry death. How would a disease like asthma effect the new kid? Stewart joined us on Halloween. He ran up to the kids and started playing with them while they were waiting for the bus. Then, […]

Chai’s surgery

She ended up with a spay. That mass that was so firm we didn’t know what we were in for, ended up being a very full cyst that ruptured during the procedure. They suctioned the contents away and her respiratory rate didn’t appear to change. She did have issues with her bowels. My vet had […]
