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!

L O V E    is in the air!

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!

Meet Hank! Hank is an adventurous boy who always finds his way into trouble! The first time he came to us his parents were concerned he had ingested rat poison. In a more recent escapade he came in with a snake bite! After a short stay in the hospital with treatment he is now doing great and hopefully keeping his nose clean! This sweet boy is always happy and wagging his tail no matter what the circumstance! Stay outta trouble, Hank!

Meet Mister Fuzzle! He came to us feeling a little under the weather. After an exam we realized he was unable to urinate! Male cats can have issues that cause them to become blocked and unable to urinate on their own. This can become very serious and an emergency very quickly.  After medical treatment and a few days in the hospital he was back to his happy self and purring away! Now Mister Fuzzle is back home and able to urinate on his own!
