What better way to wrap up Tech Week, than to showcase our fantastic ER Technicians and Assistants!? While we are all wrapping up our work day, and at home in our beds, they are working tirelessly through the night to give the best medical care to every patient in their charge. These are certainly not all of our ER techs on staff, because that would just be too much awesome in one photo 😉. CARE would be lost without them. Happy National Technician Week!!! ...

National Tech Week continues! Here are a few of our Techs and Assistants that make this place wonderful! Did you know that when CARE opened its doors in 2015, we started with about 14 Techs and Assistants? Today, we are up to a whopping 73! That’s 73 people providing never-ending love, compassion, attention to detail, and the best medical care and service to every patient that comes into their care. Help us let these ladies and gents know how special they are! We look forward to posting more of their wonderful faces throughout the week! ... See MoreSee Less

You guys are the best! Lane-Cress
Thank you all! 💞 from me and Lily too
Y’all saved our Otis, last year at this exact time he had to have surgery to remove an object from his tummy! He is doing amazing thank you for the love & compassion you have for Gods Precious Creatures 🙏🐶🙏
Clearly Jean Grey LOVES her Techs & Assistants so much, she concocted a reason she needs to come in and see them tomorrow.
Our Lucy, aka “Goose” thanks you! You are truly angels and she has had a good week!😇
These vet techs, and doctors, and office staff, are the best! Back in 2015 when Romeo lost his tail to cancer, he developed bladder stones at the same time. He went to CARE for bladder stone surgery and received the best possible care. They even let me leave his special blanket with him for comfort and when it got dirty, one of his vet techs washed it and mailed it back to me. These people care for your pet like their own. Hooray for CARE! Romeo is still doing great and no more,bladder stones!
Romeo says “ thank you CARE “ fore taking such good CARE of me! “
73! I remember the days of 14 😂. How time flies!!! Love all you 72!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
We cannot thank you all enough for taking such wonderful care of our Tyson! You are all AMAZING!💚🐶
Thanks for all you do!!!
My kitty is seeing Dr. Campbell right now. This place is awesome..❤
As the push for raw ingredients and organic growing grew in the human market, it similarly grew in the pet market. Grain-free diets in dogs are linked to DCM, which weakens the heart, preventing it from pumping enough blood and therefore enlarging it.
The condition is linked to a taurine deficiency. Taurine is an amino acid that most animals, including humans, can create their own. Dogs get a lot of it from their diet. Chicken and beef are high in taurine, while rabbit, lamb, legumes, pea-protein and other ingredients found in some grain-free foods have little or no taurine. #worldfoodday ... See MoreSee Less
Denise Meiran Taddeo this might've been what you were talking about with grain free.
One of our dogs is allergic to chicken and all three are allergic to beef, so we purchase a lamb dry food. Is taurine available as a supplement that can be added to their food?
This is why you should feed a balanced raw diet. You can you buy good commercially prepped raw dog food at almost any pet store.
Jill Marie Galati
This doesn't make sense because grains do not contain taurine. So how would adding that help the dog. The problem is bad breeding and many dog food companies having a bad meat vs veggie protien. Dogs get taurine from meat. So foods that are low in meat are the problem not grain free
Another blog post is live! In this article, Ophthalmologist Dr. Broadwater discusses ways that owners can maintain a good quality of life for pets who have lost their vision.
Much like in humans, when a dog or cat loses sight, other senses typically adapt and improve to surrounding sensory information. By playing up their newly heightened senses, we can help our pets adjust to their new normal.

On Friday of last week, Chris Mulcahy from WCNC, dropped by to interview Emergency Vet Dr. Culbert about the dangers of dogs ingesting a wild mushroom. With all the rain we've had recently, they seem to be sprouting up all over the place.
Her advice: avoid them. All of them. Because it's hard to tell the difference between those that are harmful and those that are not.
Chris Mulcahy Never had to hunt mushrooms when putting together a story before today! Big thanks to CARE for helping be with this story! ... See MoreSee Less

Can you recommend a dog food that's good for my dog with grains? My Boxer (who was a patient at CARE was on a grain-free diet and she passed in June :( )I have a toy poodle as well that's on the same food--Wellness Sweet Potato and Turkey in a can. Suggestions??
