But, you still need to leave low lights on at night or your cat can get seriously hurt going down stairs, or jumping on and off furniture. I know a friend who kept her house pitch black at night, her cat tried to jump up onto the bathroom counter and broke his neck. I keep small lights on all over the house for my cat at night.

Though some people are advocates of feeding their dogs raw meat, it can be detrimental to their health, and we'd recommend sticking to more a traditional dog food. Ask your vet for specific recommendations if you have any questions. ... See MoreSee Less

Storm, Finale: Storm went home with her Mom and Dad yesterday afternoon, and has been getting lots of rest and snacks. Storm had a whirlwind few days of scans and surgery (and a lot of pets and love in between!), but she is a tough girl and we are so proud of her! Thank you to her parents for letting us share her story! You go Storm! You show that mass who’s boss! ... See MoreSee Less

Hope she makes a speedy recovery! Dr. Dvorak is awesome!
Kasey said Storm hope you feel better
Scarlet (front left), Cooper (front right) & Macy (rear) all wish Storm a speedy recovery. Cooper is just about five weeks post surgery after having a bulging disc in his neck. The team at CARE Charlotte Animal Referral & Emergency took excellent care of him.
Storm, Part 2: Due to the quick progression of her mass, she was taken to surgery the next day by Dr. Dvorak. Ribs 8,9, and 10 were removed with the mass, as well as a portion of her diaphragm. Because the mass communicated between her abdomen and her chest, she had a chest tube and a Jackson Pratt drain placed to monitor any fluid production overnight. The next morning, Storm was in her kennel, standing to go potty, a healthy appetite (she had breakfast, AND second breakfast 😊), and was able to have her chest tube pulled. The Jackson Pratt drain will stay in for about another week and a half. ... See MoreSee Less

Storm, Part 1: Storm is a two year old Siberian Husky that was seen and evaluated by Dr Campbell and her team for a fast growing mass on her right side, just behind her right forelimb. The mass encompassed several ribs, a portion of her diaphragm, and protruded into her abdomen. The video below is a 3D reconstruction of her CT scan prior to surgery. ... See MoreSee Less
