April 2015 Newsletter

By | The EAH Newsletter
What you need to know!
  • April brings The Month of the Cat to EAH! This means 10% off on all preventative care services for your kitties! This includes vaccines, bloodwork, healthy exams, spay/neuter, and more. If you’ve been putting off bringing your cat in to see us, April is a great month to do it!
    Another great thing about the month of the cat… come by ourhospital to get a free FeliWay wipe for your kitty’s carrier – rubbing this pheromone inside the carrier before your trip to the hospital will help ease your kitty’s mood and make the trip less stressful overall! *While supplies last.
  • Please welcome Lutz Paulick to the EAH team! Lutz is a veterinary student visiting from Germany and will be spending time at EAH until early May. He will be spending time with our doctors in exam rooms, assisting in surgery, and generally working with the doctors during daily activities. We are excited to have Lutz with us – so please help us welcome him to Rock Hill and the USA!
  • Proheart is an amazing choice for heartworm prevention, especially for dogs over 100 pounds! The big guys generally need two sizes of heartworm prevention dispensed, which is more expensive.  A single Proheart injection is calculated based on their body weight and lasts for 6 months.  Much easier for large and giant breeds of dogs.  Of course it is always available for smaller dogs too!
  • Is your cat difficult to handle or hates coming to the vet? Call us first!  As long as we have seen your cat in the last year to year and a half, we are generally comfortable dispensing a oral sedative to relax your cat and make the visit much easier on your cat AND you!  We also have Feliway wipes which have pheromones present.  These help calm cats down and relax them as well!
  • NEW!  Select Sunday hours!  We will be open a SELECT amount of Sunday hours in May and June!  Dr. Hreiz will be available during the following Sundays for regular appointments, sick exams, emergencies, and any other services requested. Unfortunately we cannot schedule routine surgeries during these times (much like Saturday) since he will be the only doctor available.  As always, boarding drop offs and pick ups are still available during these hours.   Call our hospital to make an appointment!
    • Sunday, May 3rd:  Open 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
    • Sunday, May 24th:  Open 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
    • Sunday, June 21st: Open 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Urinary Issues in Cats – They are common. Here’s what you need to know!
They are the easily stressed, finicky, sensitive creatures we know and love. Now what do you do when your kitty is having urinary issues? Here’s what you need to know:

  • Male cats can easily develop obstruction of the urethra which is the tube draining urine from the bladder out of the penis.  This blockage can be a life threatening condition if not treated immediately. If you notice your male cat is straining to urinate, vocalizing, or otherwise not well, seek medical attention immediately. To make sure you are prepared when this emergency happens, read up on this condition onwww.VeterinaryPartner.com
  • If your kitty is urinating outside of the litterbox, there are a few things to consider:
    • Your feline friend may have a urinary tract infection.Having a urinary tract infection is uncomfortable and irritating to the bladder. Have our veterinarians evaluate your kitty to make sure there is not an infection brewing. These are typically easily treated and your friend will feel better in no time!
    • Do you have a multi-cat household? If so, these are likely things you are asking – How many litterboxes do I really need? Where is the best place to put litterboxes in my house? Is a covered box ok? How often to scoop? These are all great questions, and here are some quick answers:
      • You need the same number of litterboxes as you have cats- plus one! Have 3 cats? 4 boxes is best.
      • Litterboxes should be away from his food and water, in a place he can get to easily and feel safe in. Consider a location from a cat’s point of view: Choose a quiet spot where he can see what’s coming at him. A cat doesn’t want any surprises while he’s in the box. If you have multi-cats, the litterboxes should be in various areas of the house and not all grouped together.
      • Covered boxes may be appealing to you, but can be scary for cats. 1st, the smell is contained to a small area. How would you feel if your bathroom was always stinky and you couldn’t see out of it?
      • “Cleanliness is next to catliness”. Keep your kitty happy by scooping/cleaning the box twice a day. Once a week the box should be thoroughly scrubbed, cleaned with water, and air dried.
    • Only one cat in your house? Kitties can be sensitive creatures, and change can be hard. Did you get a new couch, curtains, or rug? That can be enough to stress a kitty. During potentially stressful times, make sure you keep the litterbox especially tidy. To minimize stress,Feliway Feline Pheromones can be a great addition to your home! They are available as plug-ins that only your kitty can smell, and ease their state of mind with synthetic feline pheromones. They are available at our hospital, and more information is available at http://www.feliway.com/us/ Feliway is also great for multi-cat homes!

Many cats can develop a condition known as iFLUTD- Idiopathic (meaning not knowing why it originated) Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease. Symptoms can include straining to urinate, blood in the urine, frequent urinations, and more. Having your kitty checked by our veterinarians can help to determine if your cat is suffering from iFLUTD. An exam and urinalysis is usually the first step. Learn more about this condition athttps://ebenezervets.com/pet-health-info/pet-health/articles/?rid=101

As always, call us if you have questions or are concerned about your kitty!

It’s easy to login- just enter the email address we have in our system (the one where you recieved this email) and you are nearly there!
  • Our Whole Health Plans continue to be a great plan for our clients who like to plan ahead for their pet’s health care! Did you know that in addition to paying monthly for these great plans, you can also pay in full for our WHPs and get $25 off the year? Ask our staff about this option if you are interested!
  • Does your furry family member stay at Camp Ebenezer while you are away? Between the excitement of being away from home and sometimes a change in food, some of our campers get upset belly from time to time. We are now offering administration of probiotics (think doggy and kitty yogurt) to help with “excitement belly” during their stay! As our Client Care Associates next time you visit!
Ideas to exercise your pet! Check out this video – Exercising Your Pet
Developing an exercise program for your dog and cat is important to their overall well being. Regular exercise builds strength and endurance while maintaining a healthy body weight. Additional benefits of exercise include fewer behavior and medical problems associated with inactivity.

Puppies and Dogs

Safety. Starting as early as possible, introduce your dog to a collar and leash. Some dogs will do better with a harness instead of a neck collar. Ask your veterinarian or trainer for the best choice for your dog. This early restraint training will ensure that your dog is safe and will be a joy to walk.

Walking/Running with your pet. Once your dog can be safely handled on a leash, begin with slow and steady walks two to three times a day. Gradually increase the walking distance until endurance is built. The distance will vary based on your dog’s age, health status and breed. Your veterinarian will help you establish guidelines for your dog.

Other Activities. Most dogs enjoy retrieving balls, ropes and Frisbees. Swimming and playing with other canine companions are also excellent forms of exercise.

Kittens and Cats

For our feline friends, choose activities that stimulate their natural predator-prey instincts. Try different forms of play with your cat to find out what she/he likes best. Aim for 10-15 minutes of activity, three to four times daily.

Fishing Pole toys are popular choices for many cats, as they readily promote play and jumping behaviors.

Look around the house. Often, the best toys for cats are those that are not found in the store: cardboard boxes, paper bags, and paper crumpled into a ball that can be batted around.

Strolls outside. If your cat enjoys walking outside, be sure they are fitted with a harness and leash for safety.

Let us help you develop a regular exercise program tailored to your pet’s needs. A consultation with a veterinarian prior to starting any exercise program is essential to ensure your pet doesn’t have any health conditions (e.g., arthritis) that need to be addressed first. The goal is to make the exercise program fun for everyone while ensuring your pet’s safety.

 

 

Upcoming EAH Community Projects and Events!
April, 2015 – Date TBD (rescheduled from March 14th)

EAH Staff to participate in the Committee for Responsible Pet Ownership fence build!

The Committee for Responsible Pet Ownership is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on how to care for and better understand animals. One of their many missions is to “Unchain York County” – organizing fence builds for dogs currently living on chains and for their families who can not afford to install fences themselves. Unchaining dogs greatly improves their safety and quality of life.

Some of the EbenezerAnimal Hospital staff will be helping with one such fence build in April. We are excited about this volunteer opportunity, and will be helping to unchain three dogs from a Rock Hill family.

Fencing requires funding, so if you would like to help support the cause, please visit
www.980dogs.com/
Unchain-York-County.html or drop by our hospital to make a donation.

EAH Highlighted Staff Member – Dr. Jay Hreiz!
Dr. Hreiz is one of the co-owners of Ebenezer Animal Hospital and hasbeen a member of the EAH team since 2008!  He attended Penn State University for his college education and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008.

Ever wonder why Dr. Hreiz has VMD after his name instead of the more “typical” DVM?  VMD stands for “Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris.” This is the exact same degree as DVM, or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, except the degree is in Latin instead of English.  If you ever see a veterinarian with VMD after his or her name, you can be sure that the individual is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine!

In his spare time Dr. Hreiz is an avid runner and has completed a handful of half marathons and five full marathons (so far!).  He is full of wanderlust and has traveled to many locations including Thailand, France, Portugal, England, Germany, Austria, Iceland, Mexico, Costa Rica, and many of the US National Parks. He also loves spending time with his rescued greyhound, Ella, and his kitty Dax!

Next time you are at EAH, make sure to say hi to Dr. Hreiz!

    *Please know Yelp only displays reviews of individuals who have at least 1 other review (2 or more total), so use this opportunity to give kudos to another local business!*
    As always, if you have concerns, we would love for you to call and discuss those with us directly!
  • Comfortis (oral flea medication) and Parastar (flea and tick topical) are buy one get one free! Take advantage of this great deal while supplies last!
  • Our Whole Health Plans continue to be a great investment for clients who find it easier to pay monthly for preventative care! For more information visit http://ebenezervets.com/services/whole-health-plans/
  • Due to increased demand, we are extending our February Dental Month Promotions through mid-March! Call now to schedule your pet’s dental cleaning through March 13th and get great deals (as outlined below)!
  • Don’t forget- continued heartworm preventative is so important! We live in the south, and the American Heartworm Society recommends year-round preventative due to the high instance of mosquitos in our area. If you are like many others and have a hard time remembering monthly preventative, your dog may be eligable for the Proheart 6 Injection! Proheart is a safe injection that lasts 6 months, allowing for ease of use and continued protection. A quick trip to our hospital for our staff to administer the injection, and you and your pup are on their way. Ask about Proheart 6 if you think it may make your life easier!
Dogs and cats are NOT small humans when it comes to medication!
This may not be a suprise to some of you, but many people think that human medications are always safe for their pets. This is NOT the case! In fact, you should NEVER give medications to your pets without first checking with our veterinarians to ensure it is safe. Here are a few medications which should NEVER be given to pets:

  • Ibuprofen – Ibuprofen (Advil®, Motrin®) is the most common human medication ingested by pets. Many brands have a sweet outer coating that makes it appealing to pets (think “M&M,” but a potentially deadly one). Ibuprofen can cause stomach ulcers and kidney failure.
  • Adderall® – Adderall® is a combination of four different amphetamines and is used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children. This medication doesn’t have the same effect in pets as it does in people; it acts as a stimulant in our pets and causes elevated heart rate and body temperature, along with hyperactivity, tremors and seizures.
  • Zolpidem – Zolpidem (Ambien®) is a sleep-aid for people. Pets commonly eat pills left on the bedside table. Zolpidem may make cats wobbly and sleepy, but most pets become very agitated and develop elevated heart rates.
  • Clonazepam – Clonazepam (Klonopin®) is used as an anticonvulsant and anti-anxiety medication. It is sometimes also prescribed as a sleep-aid. When animals ingest clonazepam they can become sleepy and wobbly. Too much clonazepam can lower the blood pressure, leading to weakness or collapse.
  • Acetaminophen – Acetaminophen (Tylenol®) is a very common pain killer found in most households. Cats are extremely sensitive to acetaminophen, but dogs can be affected too. Acetaminophen can cause liver damage. It can also cause damage to your pet’s red blood cells so that the cells are unable to carry oxygen – like your body, your pet’s body needs oxygen to survive.
  • Naproxen – Naproxen (Aleve®, Naprosyn®) is an over-the-counter pain reliever. Dogs and cats are very sensitive to naproxen and even small amounts can cause stomach ulcers and kidney failure.
  • Duloxetine – Duloxetine (Cymbalta®) is prescribed as an antidepressant and anti-anxiety agent. When ingested by pets it can cause agitation, vocalization, tremors and seizures.
  • Venlafaxine – Venlafaxine (Effexor®) is an antidepressant. For some unknown reason, cats love to eat the capsules. Ingestion can cause agitation, vocalization, tremors and seizures.

Happy New Year! What’s going on at EAH?
Happy New Year! We hope 2015 brings health and happiness to each and every one of you!
Here’s what you need to know! 🙂
  • Hospital renovations to (hopefully) begin soon! We are still in the planning stages, but hope to add square footage onto our existing building.The new plans will offer additional office space, an upgraded boarding facility, and indoor and outdoor playspace for doggy play-care! More details to come!
  • February is National Pet Dental Health Month! Details below on how having your pet’s dental cleaning done during the month of February will save you money! Also,  each dental in February will recieve a *free* Ora-Vet Sealant application to help protect your pet’s teeth going forward!
  • Our regular groomer, Sheila, will not be available from January 6th through (at least) January 26th. Good news is that our fabulous receptionist, Carla, has been grooming for years and will be able to take on some of Sheila’s grooming patients! Sheila is having shoulder surgery, and while we know all our wonderful clients will miss her, she needs time to recover and heal! Carla has been grooming for years and is happy to be trusted with your furry family members. Let us know if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment with either groomer!
  • Check out our new signage on the hospital and outside! We are still working with an electrician to get them lit, but the important thing is that they are up and sharing great info with you!
  • There have been several recent pet food and treat recalls in the market. In an effort to keep you up to date, we suggest you sign up for free email pet food recalls at http://www.petfoodrecall.org/notifications/ . This service will email you when a new recall is issued, keeping you as up to date as possible. We will, of course, always pass along information to you as we receive it.
  • Your pet has an online pet portal- did you know that? Sometimes you need access to your pet’s medical records when you least expect it. Never fear- accessing records online is simple, safe, and secure! Visit our website (www.ebenezervets.com) and click on the Patient Center tab, then down to My Pet’s Medical Records. As long as we have your email address in our system, you can register and log in! If we don’t have your email address, let us know so we can add it and you can get registered. Easy as that!
Burr- It’s cold out there! Keep your pets safe!
With the new year comes cold weather! Keeping your pets safe is on the top of your mind, we are sure, and it’s always on top of ours! Here are some great tips from the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

Winter wellness: Has your pet had his/her preventive care exam (wellness exam) yet?  Cold weather may worsen some medical conditions such as arthritis. Your pet should be examined by a veterinarian at least once a year, and it’s as good a time as any to get him/her checked out to make sure (s)he is ready and as healthy as possible for cold weather.
Know the limits:  Just like people, pets’ cold tolerance can vary from pet to pet based on their coat, body fat stores, activity level, and health. Be aware of your pet’s tolerance for cold weather, and adjust accordingly. You will probably need to shorten your dog’s walks in very cold weather to protect you both from weather-associated health risks. Arthritic and elderly pets may have more difficulty walking on snow and ice and may be more prone to slipping and falling. Long-haired or thick-coated dogs tend to be more cold-tolerant, but are still at risk in cold weather. Short-haired pets feel the cold faster because they have less protection, and short-legged pets may become cold faster because their bellies and bodies are more likely to come into contact with snow-covered ground. Pets with diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, or hormonal imbalances (such as Cushing’s disease) may have a harder time regulating their body temperature, and may be more susceptible to problems from temperature extremes. The same goes for very young and very old pets. If you need help determining your pet’s temperature limits, consult your veterinarian.

We will also help organize weekly walks for anyone wishing to participate. More details to come!

EAH Highlighted Staff Member – April!
Many of you know of April Splawn, but rarely get to see her in “real life”! April is one of our owners and is the Hospital Administrator of EAH, and is thereby responsible for most of the behind the scenes workings of the hospital!

April came to EAH in 2002 while enrolled in the School of Law at the University of South Carolina. She needed a part time job on the weekends, and that combined with her love of animals made Ebenezer the perfect fit! After graduating from Law School in 2004, and realizing that she had no real interest in practicing law, April joined EAH full time as the Hospital Administrator. The rest is history!

In her free time, April enjoys kayaking, hiking with her dogs, working puzzles, and traveling. She has a house full of her own rescued pets (5 pit bulls, 5 cats, and a rabbit!), in addition to the rotating door of foster pets that inevitably come through her home.

Next time you are in the hospital, ask to say hello to April! She always needs an excuse to get out of her office. 😉

 

November 2014 Newsletter

By | The EAH Newsletter
What’s new at EAH?
  • Our Whole Health Plans are well underway! Do you often wish that you could pay monthly for your pet’s preventative care? Well now you can! Give us a call, check out our website, or come by for more details on these discounted plans! This allows you to divide those expenses into manageable, monthly payments, so you can provide the care your pet needs.
  • Our Howl-o-ween costume contest was a huge success! Thank you to all of our wonderful clients who brought their pet’s by EAH the week of Halloween in costume to trick or treat! We posted their photos to Facebook, and the pet with the most “likes” won 6 months of flea prevention! Congrats to our little ladybug, “Pickle”, for winning the contest
  • Our new floors in the “behind the scenes” areas of the hospital have been installed! We still have to install the baseboards, but the EAH crew is so happy to have the floors themselves done and the mess subsiding! Thank you to all of our clients for your understanding during this process!
  • We are in the process of putting together a 2015 “Rescued patients of EAH” calendar! Proceeds will benefit Project Safe Pet, a rescue group in the area that we work closely with. Thank you to all who submitted photos for the calendar! These should be available by early December, so keep an eye out!

 

 Thanksgiving Treat Recipe!
Want your pets to enjoy the Thanksgiving meal, but don’t want to deal with the upset belly that will likely ensue? Here is a healthy, pet-safe holiday treat that they are sure to love:

Pumpkin Pie Cookies (for cats and dogs!) 2 cups rice flour 1/2 cup oatmeal 1 cup canned pumpkin 1 cup grated carrots 1/2 cup unsweetened plain applesauce 1/4 flour for rolling

• In a food processor blend carrots, applesauce and pumpkin until smooth. • Mix rice flour and oatmeal in a bowl. • Add wet ingredients to the dry and mix gently until dough forms. • On a floured breadboard place dough and roll out to about 1/4 inch in thickness. • Use cookie cutter to cut out little cookies. • Place cookies on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for seven minutes. • Flip treats over and cook for five more minutes. Remove from oven and cool thoroughly.

 

You know our doctors see dogs and cats… but what about your other family pets?
We know many of you have been there… your child really wants a hamster; you adopt a rabbit from the shelter; your roommate acquires a cockatiel; your boyfriend brought home an inguana. Now what?

The animals listed above, plus many more, fall into the “exotics” category of pets! Many people find themselves with an exotic pet at one point or another through their life, and it’s not always clear how to properly care for that animal. Sure, the people at the pet store pointed you to the food isle, but did they tell you that the bird food you picked out isn’t complete nutrition for your new feathered pet? Or that your rabbit needs large quantities of hay in addition to pellets and small supplies of fresh veggies.

If you didn’t get this information, you aren’t alone. All too often we see exotic patients whose owners aren’t sure of appropriate husbandry or feeding guidlines. And the tricky part is that these delicate pets often have been sick quite some time before people realize there is a problem.

Our doctors would love to discuss care and nutrition with you for ANY of your pets. In the meantime, check out the Exotics Husbandry information on our website for tips on some of your especially delicate pets.
