Meet Harley! Harley came to us in March for favoring her rear leg. After an exam, we found out that she had to have a major surgery on her knee to repair a torn ACL. Her knee healed up great! Unfortunately, she came back to visit us recently, only to find that her opposite knee had torn, as well!  She recently had the other knee operated on so she can be healthy and run around like a Lab should!  This procedure is called a TPLO. She is healing well and will visit us soon for a check-up! Harley stays happy and keeps her tail wagging through it all!

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!
