Ten New Year’s Resolutions to make for your pet by Stefanie Wong, DVM

‘Tis the time of year to make New Year’s Resolutions. In ringing in the new year, we vow to start the year fresh, energized and ready to enact change within our lives. Make 2014 a healthier, happier year for you and your pet by following this list.

You Ate What?! by Erin Selby with Kristi Peterson, DVM

Pets, especially dogs, will eat the strangest things. The consequences of their bizarre appetites range from minor reactions such as an upset stomach and short-term diarrhea to the more serious such as inappetance, lethargy, vomiting, hospitalization and even surgery. Foreign body surgeries are on one of our more common procedures – it seems like every week we are removing something that has caused an intestinal obstruction in a dog or cat. Often these foreign body removals consist of common household objects. Last month alone we performed surgery on two dogs from different families who had eaten small bottles of Gorilla Glue. That’s right Gorilla Glue – and this is a pretty common thing!

Thank You

As the year 2013 comes to a close we have been reflecting on what we are grateful for - and the answer is YOU!

Holiday Safety Tips

It's the most wonderful time of the year - and we aim to help keep it that way by sharing our pet holiday safety tips with you!

Pet Insurance: Special Limited Time Offer!

Here at Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center & Urgent Care we believe passionately in the value of pet insurance for all pet owners. Pet insurance is the gift of protection and peace of mind. In case of an unexpected illness or accident, it is the safety net that allows you to confidently pursue life-saving treatments. Just like lots of love, exercise, a balanced diet, and annual visits to the vet, pet insurance is truly an investment in your pet's health.

Ask the Vet: Arthritis by Stefanie Wong, DVM

Does your pet limp after chasing the ball in the park or going for a long hike? Does he or she have trouble getting up, especially in the mornings or after lying down for a long time? Do you now notice that he/she has difficulty doing things that previously were easy, such as jumping or going up and down stairs? If you said yes to any of the above, this article is for you.

Adrenal Gland Disorders: Cushing's & Addison's Disease by Trevor Miller, DVM

Does your veterinarian seem preoccupied with your pet's bathroom habits? How often have you been asked, “Any change in Bella’s thirst or urination?” during an appointment? Picking up poop and cleaning the litter box may not be your favorite aspect of pet ownership, but changes in an animal's elimination habits can give us a lot of information regarding potential internal medicine disorders.
