Pet loss support groups create an understanding and non-judgmental environment where members can share their feelings surrounding the loss of their companion. You are not alone in your grief and our support group allows pet owners to meet other members who understand what it’s like to lose a cherished pet. The group is run by our social worker, Christina Stephens-Malloy, LCSW who is committed to helping pet owners before and after the loss.
The Pet Loss Support Group at Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital is open to anyone who has experienced or anticipates the loss of a pet or service animal. If you are interested in attending our group or would like more information, please contact Christina at 781-528-6802 or cmalloy@ethosvet.com.

Recks and Jordan are new best friends! Recks is a 6-month old Pitbull who presented to our ER for vomiting. We performed an ultrasound which didn’t show anything significant. Our biggest concern for a 6 month old puppy is foreign material since puppies get into so much mischief. Luckily, we found that wasn’t the case for Recks! We gave him a dose of an anti-nausea medication and sent him home with more medication and instructions to feed a bland diet, which should help settle his stomach. Jordan, one of our Veterinary Assistants, took a strong liking to Recks and really, who could blame him; he’s adorable!

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month! Like many human diseases, pets can get glaucoma too. But just what is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye disease which is characterized by an increased pressure within the eye. There are multiple causes, but primary glaucoma is usually caused by an inherited abnormality of the drainage angle and is breed-related. Most common breeds for it to be found in are Cocker Spaniels, Basset Hounds, Beagles, Shar Peis, Chow Chows, and Jack Russell Terriers. Acute Glaucoma is a medical emergency and must be treated immediately. It is painful and can lead to permanent vision loss. Signs can include redness of the eye, cloudy eye, tearing, enlarged eyeball, lethargy and loss of appetite. In this picture, the patient presented with acute glaucoma signs of red (episcleral congestion) and cloudy (corneal edema) eyes and third eyelid elevation.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, allows us to quickly diagnose the cause of a variety of illnesses in animals. One of our neurologists, Dr. Troxel, answers some of the most common questions from pet owners: why does my pet need an MRI? Is it safe for pets? How long it take? http://ow.ly/QGMX30nsbL4

Today is National #SeeingEyeDogDay, where we recognize the incredible work that guide dogs do for the visually impaired. These seeing eye dogs are not only trained to lead around obstacles and be a companion, but even to disobey their owners when they see a potential danger!
A friendly reminder to never pet or interrupt a guide dog while they're working unless you ask their owner first!
