If you’ve ever been to the pet section of your local store, then you know that there are many different kinds of food bowls available for your pet. Some are stylish, while others are plain, but a bowl is a bowl, right? Wrong!

During the holidays Animal Hospital of North Asheville sees an increase in cats and dogs suffering from a very severe and painful disease called Pancreatitis. Quite often it is a result of a pet eating fatty foods or another human food they are not used to. Let's take a closer look at Pancreatitis.

The weather is turning crisp, pumpkin spice is everywhere, and the ghoulish decorations are popping up around the neighborhood. That’s right… it is Halloween time again. Help take the “Spook” out of Spooktacular! Help your pet have a fear free Halloween.

On a chilly evening in February, Animal Hospital of North Asheville got a call that a critically ill two-month-old puppy was being transferred to our care. This was the second puppy that had come to us for burn treatments in a span of just one year.

We are excited to have a new product available at Animal Hospital of North Asheville for those who need either more control or less pulling (or both) when walking their dog. We now offer the Freedom No-Pull Harness which is not a head halter but looks much like a traditional dog harness. While head halters work well for many dogs and the people walking them, some dogs fight wearing them. We are happy to have found the Freedom No-Pull Harness which dogs find comfortable, is difficult to slip out of, and best of all, it is easy to learn to put on.

We so greatly appreciate your votes in the Mountain Xpress Best of WNC poll! Once again we have been voted the #1 Veterinarian in WNC! It means a great deal to all of us to be recognized for the work we do. Thank you!

Although we have won this award many times, we do not take your vote for granted. We are constantly trying our best to improve the quality of care that we provide.Over the past few years, we have been proud leaders in the fear-free veterinary care movement that is taking place, and we are excited to learn even more about how to reduce fear in our patients. During the past year, twenty-one of our staff members have become certified in Fear Free Veterinary Care and many more have studied the materials. Being totally fear-free is a lofty goal and not attainable for every single pet, but we have learned more and more about how to reduce stress in our patients. Our hospital design, the use of positive reinforcement with treats or toy rewards, gentle handling techniques, knowledge of canine and feline body language, the use of drugs when needed, and the use of calming adjuncts such as music, Thunder Shirts and special pheromones are all ways that we try to make visits to our hospital as pleasant as possible. Best of all for the pets is our policy allowing you to accompany your pet in the hospital.

Have you ever watched your cat breathe? What a silly question! But the fact is, most of us don’t really watch how our cats breathe on a regular basis. Normally, cats breathe about 20 times per minute, and their breathing is smooth, silent, and almost imperceptible unless they’re purring. When there is something wrong in the lungs, there are some changes that you can watch out for: http://bit.ly/2xJYJm8
