As 2017 draws to a close, we reflect on another successful year of serving our clients and their pets. Our wonderful clients make our hospital great, and our doctors and staff give thanks to our members and clients for entrusting us with their pet’s health. From all of us here at Avery Creek Pet Hospital, we wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday season.
Tis the season for spending time with family and friends, which often means trying to figure out the best way to travel with your pets. In this article, we will discuss several tips for how to make sure you and your pets are comfortable, regardless of your method of travel.
It's that time of year again! Each year we take donations to help a local organization. This year we've chosen to collect donations to Boxer Butts & Other Mutts. BBOM is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit rescue group located in Western North Carolina.
They are committed to rescuing dogs that are in dire need of help and often pull dogs from shelters who are on the brink of euthanasia. Many of those dogs need immediate medical care and are brought to us for medical attention. You can stop by our clinic and make a monetary donation, or if you are a wellness rewards member, you can donate your rewards money. You can also view a list of items the rescue needs, and you can drop off your donation at our clinic during normal business hours.

Halloween is a fun time for us and our family, but can be a scary time for our pets. Imagine being in your dog's shoes where suddenly everyone in your world is dressed up as monsters and your once private, quiet home is being bombarded with strangers! Even the most well-mannered dogs can suffer from anxiety during Halloween. It's important to remember that what may be fun for us, isn't necessarily fun for our pets, and it's our job as their guardians to advocate the best we can for them.
