April Pets of the Month 2017

Happy Heartworm Awareness Month!

 

Are you protecting your pets? Dogs and Cats can get heartworms from just one bite from an infected mosquito! We all know we have a mild winter here in Texas, so mosquitos are around all year long. Luckily, we have great and easy preventatives to use to protect your pet! We just had a sad case this week of a dog that was heartworm positive. Without treatment it can cause life harming changes to the body. Call us today to see what products we have!

Hi, my name is Chex! I am a 120 pound Doberman. I am 4 years old and I love everyone! I love coming to Canyon Animal Clinic! The staff always gives me lots of love and treats! The hugs are good but the treats are better! I recently had to spend the night and have a TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy), because I tore my Cranial Cruciate Ligament. Bummer! Since the surgery, I have been doing my physical therapy with my mom and I am feeling much better! My family is very happy that I am doing better because I have an important job, of Ring Bearer, in their wedding this month! Thank you CanyonVet for helping me with my leg!

Meet Mac! Mac is a 7 year old Rottweiler Mix. He came to see us early March for not eating and lethargy. Dr. Buntain performed radiographs and determined he had Splenomegaly; enlargement of the spleen. Dr. Buntain administered IV fluids and a blood transfusion before performing surgery to remove the spleen (Splenectomy). What is unique about Mac is that his spleen turned out to be a hematoma, which is a benign collection of blood, not cancer! (which is more common) The surgery went well and now Mac is back to his playful, bashful self!

My name is Alfredo! I am a 5 year old Maremma Sheepdog. I am a regular visitor to see my favorite groomer, Amber! More recently, my visits are to care for an anal gland issue.  The anal glands or anal sacs are small glands found near the anus in many mammals, including dogs and cats.  After careful consideration from my doctor and family they decided it was best to remove the anal gland (anal sacculectomy) to clear up any infection once and for all! Permanent relief of chronic anal gland conditions such as impaction, infection, and abscessation can be achieved with surgery.  I have healed from surgery and I am feeling great!

Hi, my name is Sadie! I am an 8 year old Pit Bull who was rescued by a local family that is trying to help me find my forever home! I get along great with other dogs and I love little kids! Nothing makes me feel better than people rubbing my belly and telling me how sweet I am! A growth on my paw caused me to have my leg amputated, but I am not going to let it slow me down! If you or someone you know would like to adopt me, please call my favorite doctors office so they can get you in touch with my foster family!

Meet Maija! Maija is an 8 year old ShihTzu who came to use us for not eating or acting like herself. After doing an exam and running some bloodwork, Dr. Leakey saw her electrolytes were extremely low and decided to keep her here in the hospital for I.V. Fluids and observation. After medication and keeping her hydrated, Dr. Leakey saw her bloodwork results had improved and she was able to go home. But, only to return a few days later with the same symptoms. Further diagnostic testing showed that she had Addison’s disease. After adjusting her medication accordingly and monitoring her closely she seems to be feeling much better!

Chucho is a 6 month old Bull Terrier. He came to us very sick! We quickly did a full exam and with some diagnostics we were able to conclude that he was suffering from Parvovirus! Parvovirus attacks the intestinal tract and can cause symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea and lethargy. Therefore, causing dehydration that can become life threatening if not treated! After a few days in the hospital with I.V. Fluids and medication, oh, and lots of love, he has made a full recovery! He now visits us for “healthy visits” for his vaccines so he can stay healthy!

I’m Lefty! I am a three and a half year old Scottish Terrier. I have “little” sisters that are English Mastiff’s that I supervise during the day. I had some uncomfortable skin allergies until I saw Dr. Hossalla and the staff at Canyon Animal Clinic.  Now I visit them every 4-6 weeks for an injection called Cytopoint! The injection keeps me itch free!   The staff at Canyon Animal Clinic must really love me, because when I go in for a visit they give me so much love and lots and lots of treats!!

Meet Angel! She came to see us last month for a hurt leg. After performing radiographs, Dr. Buntain found a distal femoral fracture in the left rear leg. Due to the breakdown of the bone, repair of the fracture was not likely. Angel’s dad and Dr. Buntain decided to amputate for the best outcome. The surgery went well and so did Angel’s recovery! Now she is back to herself and able to run and play again!
