Special Pet: Lucy

Lucy came to us after a source of unknown trauma fractured her jaw while she was outside one day. Dr. Pettigrew used a special jaw repair technique for her treatment. First, he placed three to four orthopedic pins through her jaw. He then attached plastic tubing on the outside surface of the pins. Finally, he filled the tubing with a special acrylic material, Acrylx, which solidifies and holds everything securely in place. We are happy to report that Lucy is doing well at her recheck appointments!
Special Pet: Friend's of Feline's Rescue Center kitty


This kitty came to us from the Friend's of Felines Rescue Center in Defiance, OH. He has found his forever home but needed some dental work first. While we were getting him ready for his big dental day, we noticed a few extra toes!
Special Pet: Edgar

Edgar is our manager Callie's cat. He came to Callie a few years ago as a stray and she took him in. Since then, he has been through a few of his "nine lives". He has the tip of his ear missing, had a fractured hip, and had to have his eye removed due to the disease, Toxoplasmosis, invading it. He sure is lucky to have stumbled upon the house of a veterinary professional! Callie finds it very fulfilling to rescue pets rather than purchase from a breeder or pet store. Edgar is pictured here in an owl hat that he is less than impressed with.

Oops! Accidents happen to everyone, including veterinary professionals!
This picture shows our technician, Bre, with her dog Addie. This is the mess after she had to administer activated charcoal by stomach tube. The reason we had to do this is because Addie was a bad girl and ate a bunch of chocolate and this was the treatment of choice!
