Meet Jett! When Jett presented to us 2 weeks ago, he was unable to walk on his hind limbs due to muscle weakness. Jett had a followup appointment with Dr. Clarke today and we got this video of him. Look at him go! He is still experiencing weakness after walking for several minutes which is expected. We are so glad that Jett has responded to treatment and hope he continues to do well! www.vrccvet.com

Dr. Aman recently performed a partial mandibulectomy on Abbe to remove an oral mass that grew back after being removed at her primary veterinarian. Most of the time, simply removing the tissue around the mass will ensure it is gone for good. But, in Abbe's case, part of the bone had to be removed as well. Stories like Abbe's show us how important it is to have annual check ups. Abbe's owners along with her primary veterinarian were able to detect the growth in her mouth in the early stages and do something about it before complications developed. We are happy to report that the mass was benign and that Abbe is doing well at home!

Bodie is one of Dr. Stephanie Wan's long-term patients who was diagnosed with Leptospirosis back in 2013. After a month in the hospital with us, he pulled through and is doing well today! This is his story.

This sweet little girl is Olive, Dr. Sharon Clare's own dog. Dr. Clare noticed a small lump growing on her shoulder and thought her microchip had migrated and was causing irritation. One of our surgeons, Dr. Schneider did a physical exam, took some x-rays and found that the microchip was not the cause of the problem and that the lump was completely separate from it. After aspirating the lump, it was discovered to be a Grade II mast cell tumor. The tumor has since been removed and we are happy to report that Olive is doing great! 

This shows how important it is to schedule annual physical exams in order to detect and prevent serious diseases.
