As CARE’s first Emergency Critical Care Specialist, I wanted to write an article explaining what a “Criticalist” does. And, most specifically, how I will help your pets throughout their treatment. While there are many specialized areas of veterinary...
What? You’ve never fallen asleep with your head propped up on the wall and ice packs on your elbows before? This sweet boy Rocco had a lot of fun this morning playing and wrestling with our technician, Carrie, (ie getting his elbows iced) and really wore himself out! ... See MoreSee Less
I see that my cats are also affected by being put ‘on hold’ for device use... maybe dogs more so-but ignoring our pets in lieu of 📱 robs us & them of quality interaction😢 🐱 🐶
My dog, Tudhy, cries if I pick up my phone during play or cuddle time. She reminds me to be present in the moment. Just one other reason to LOVE dogs.
If you keep your cat active during the day, he or she will sleep better at night. If you're not free-feeding your cat, you can also help him or her get a good night's sleep by providing a substantial evening meal. #funfactfriday ... See MoreSee Less
My Tony Bear would not let me sleep unless his bowl was full at night 🤦♀️ at all times....
Good luck with that!! Gracie refuses to do anything but eat during the day 😂

Don't consider it. Just do it. I ran a shelter. The number of cats dying in shelters simply for lack of space and homes is horrific. The ONLY way to stop millions of animals from dying every year is for owners to be responsible. Shutting down puppy mills would be a huge help as well. As owners, the over population problem is OUR responsibility.
Grapes and raisins, as well as onions, garlic, and chives, are all extremely harmful foods for cats. Grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure -- although the reasoning behind that isn't clear. Meanwhile, onions, garlic, and chives wreak havoc on your cat's gastrointestinal system and can cause anemia. #funfactfriday ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks for this reminder, not that my cat craves any of this, but I have one who is always interested in what I am eating and yo never know what he might bite into.
An inspiration to us all. When Sherri Franklin was volunteering for the San Francisco Humane Society, she noticed that senior dogs weren't getting adopted. In response, she started a nonprofit that rescues senior dogs from shelters and finds them forever homes. ... See MoreSee Less
Genetic testing for dogs has surged in recent years. Many say it's a way for them to get to know their pet better. And, as in humans, DNA testing can also tell you about health risks, disposition and background. ... See MoreSee Less
We can't help but squeeze one more article about heart disease and its relationship to dog food in February. We love empowering people through information. #heartdiseaseawarenessmonth ... See MoreSee Less
I can't believe this article said, "do yourself a favor - stop reading the ingredients list. I would hope pet owners would read the ingredients and research where those ingredients are sourced from. I feed my babies The Honest Kitchen and I'll never go back to feeding them any of those so called "reputable" brands. And the information on grains in this article, do grains not feed cancer or have I been misinformed on that, too?🙄
Recent studies suggest that people who work in veterinary medicine are at a high risk for mental health disorders. Dr. Peggy Sayer, one of the founders of CARE, has written an article explaining how the practice works to keep mental health at the forefront.
She writes, "We of course value our staff members and want to take care of their well-being. We also believe that strong mental health empowers our team members to provide our patients the highest level of care. Each and every one of our employees has a deep passion for improving pets’ quality of life through veterinary medicine. As a leader, I understand the importance of protecting and enabling this passion, as it makes so many of us tick." ... See MoreSee Less
Your staff is so aware of how we, as pet parents, are impacted. The care and concern they feel is felt all the time. You have created a very supportive environment where the staff laugh and cry with their patients and their families. Well done! From a pet parent perspective, we appreciate this as much as the care and love you give to our pets! 💙❤️
We love Dr. Sayer, she always has others in the forefront of her mind - human or hound! 💕
Your practice’s efforts show-Bravo! The staff is very positive, compassionate & caring!
