“I may not be able to hear or see you so well anymore, Doc, but my sniffer doesn’t ever miss a cookie!” 🍪🐾 . Indeed we did have plenty of cookies for our senior friend Potter! He loves our visits and is such a sweetie!! 💙

Hi furriends! We’re back from an Instagram hiatus and just have to share our handsome new patient, Honey! He was a bit nervous at first but luckily we were able to go at his pace (and provide plenty of treats!) to win him over. We love you, Honey!! 💖🐾

IVDD Survivor Alert!! This cutie pie Rusty was unable to walk for seven days. We performed acupuncture and cold laser therapy to help stimulate his nerves, and he started walking again the very next day! Go Rusty!! 💙🐾 . . IVDD (intervertebral disc disease) is a condition where the discs between the vertebrae become displaced and push up onto the spinal cord. This causes inflammation and pain, and in more severe cases (like Rusty’s) it can interfere with nerve conduction down to the hind legs, resulting in partial or complete paralysis. Short, long breeds like Dachshunds are very susceptible to this condition. . . Diagnosis is highly suspected based on clinical signs, but can be confirmed with advanced imaging like an MRI. Treatments range from medical management with pain and anti-inflammatory medications, to neurosurgery for removal of the disc material that is pressing on the spinal cord. Integrative treatments like acupuncture and rehabilitation can be extremely effective in helping pets heal from this condition! . . Please contact us or your veterinarian if you have any questions on how to prevent and treat IVDD!

Before & After: One of my foster babies, Chaco, is all grown up and having a blast with his new family!! We’re so lucky to see him every now and then for his checkups. Good boy, Chaco! ❤️🐶

It’s Veterinary Technician Week! 💜Most of our clients have met Martha, who is always ready with plenty of snuggles for your pets. She is the kindest person you could ever hope to meet, and we are so lucky to have her as the other half of our team!! . Did you know? Martha has two dogs (Cosmo & Peach) and a bird (Jackson). She’s a UT alum and loves watching movies at the Alamo Drafthouse! . Tell your pets! Martha is the one who makes sure that we always have plenty of treats for our appointments! 🤩
