Ozzy came to us unconscious and severely traumatized after being pulled under a fence and attacked by 2 larger dogs. He was in critical condition.
Maya got an upset tummy and decided to eat a whole bunch of chest grass and a small staple. Luckily we were able to remove it with our video endoscope. It took over 2 hours to pull it all out, chunk by chunk, but we were able to avoid surgery. She will soon be feeling much better! We love sweet Maya and her super nice owners.
Lilly was first diagnosed with kidney and bladder stones a few years ago. She had surgery to remove her bladder stones. Unfortunately, surgery to remove kidney stones can be very dangerous and usually is only done if the stones are going to obstruct the kidney. Sadly, this was the case a couple years later for poor Lilly, and she had to have a stent placed in her ureter at the specialty center. All was well again until recently, when she came in lethargic and in pain.
Rusty came to us due to a several day history of poor appetite and lethargy. He had a very enlarged lymph node under his jaw, and his blood work showed very high calcium levels. First on our list of likely diseases was, unfortunately, a type of cancer called lymphoma. We prepared his owner for some likely bad news, but we did the tests to confirm the potential diagnosis- a sample of the enlarged node looking for cancer cells.
Zoe had had quite the journey with us! Zoe was flown to us from Halo Animal Rescue in Arizona. She had a broken jaw and was in desperate need of a dental procedure. Dr. Kevin Knighton donated his time and expertise to repair little Zoe. While Dr. Zann and the All Valley Animal Care Center team cleaned up her mouth and helped rehabilitate her.
