Thank you to everyone who responded to my question about whether or not you talk to your pets. I love your responses. I certainly talk to all of my pets. They are great listener, great therapists and great advisors. In fact, what I love most about pets is that they always tell the truth and you always know where you stand with them. Plus, they are never too busy to listen and they are always interested in what I have to say. I just look to my pets to see how I’m doing in all things. If they’re calm and happy I know that I’m doing a pretty good job. If they’re excited or worried I know that I need to de-stress, and, of course, the best way to do that is to spend some quality time with my pets. All in all, my world is just better because I have pets in it.

Dave’s and my Treeing Walker Coonhound, Giuseppe, is special for many reasons. He was adopted for Dave’s birthday (best gift ever) a few years ago from the Puppies 4 Parole Program. Giuseppe is super sweet, very loving, amazingly handsome, and, incredibly enough, he was born with a large Coonhound spot on his side in the shape of a Valentine heart which always makes me smile.

So, from everyone here at All Paws Medical and Behavioral Center, especially our special boy Giuseppe, we wish you a Valentine’s Day filled with joy.

Here’s a few of our doggies waiting politely for a treat from Mom. From left to right you’ll see our Coonhounds Giuseppe and Penne Pasta, our Labrador mix, Dooey and our Westie, Duckie. Needless to say everyone deserved a treat. Great job, kids!

The announcement just made it onto the Fear Free website today: I am now totally certified as the first “Fear Free” veterinarian in mid- Missouri which is a pretty big deal.

So, you might be asking, what does it mean to practice “Fear Free” veterinary medicine. To me, this entire concept means that at All Paws we always want to have the best interests of our patients in mind; medically and emotionally. Whether a dog or cat comes to see us for an exam, for surgery, or for behavioral work, I always want to provide the very best care possible and I want to do it in the kindest and most compassionate way. As the “Fear Free” folks say, being “Fear Free” takes the pet out of petrified!” I believe this with all of my heart. It’s important for our patient’s sake to keep veterinary care stress-free. A calm, content pet is a healthier one and a happier one, too.

Please contact All Paws with any questions.

February is Dental Health Care Month for pets. This is an important reminder for a really important problem facing many pets not just in February, but one to consider every day of every month in the year. Just like people, it matters greatly if a pets’ teeth and gums are healthy. This affects their ability to eat, to live with or without chronic mouth pain, and teeth and gum disease can impact your pets’ very life. Bacteria in the mouth can spread into the bloodstream damaging the function of their heart and kidneys.

Prevention is important when it comes to your pets’ dental health, and don’t count on your pets to keep their own teeth healthy. Instead they’re counting on you and that’s where we can help. My staff and I can help you with preventative care ideas and ideas to help if infection or tarter has already begun. Together we can really make a difference for your pet’s sake.

Today we saw a sweet 8 year old Australian Cattle dog mix with an inspirational weight loss story for all of us.

Last February we saw Claire at All Paws because she was suffering from a swollen and painful knee joint. She had injured herself, in part, because she was carrying 20 pounds of extra weight. Sadly, if things didn’t change, I was concerned that Claire’s issue would worsen and even surgery wouldn’t be enough. Today I saw Claire and I couldn’t believe it. She came running into our exam room wagging her cute, little tail. She looked great, and is now 15.8 pounds thinner than she was one year ago!

Her Dad is adding carrots and green beans to her diet and feeding less calories in each meal. He also tells me that Claire was inspired when she saw Marie Osmond weight loss commercials. I think Claire should now host a weight loss commercial of her own.

I’m proud of Claire and her Dad!

To me, one of the most important things you can so as a veterinarian is to treat pets with kindness, caring and respect. This is essential in preventing fear and anxiety. This goes hand and hand with practicing quality medicine and surgery. In my mind, a calm and happy pet is a heathier pet, too.

Two weeks ago, I attended a veterinarian conference and learned that there is a growing movement in our profession to honor veterinarians who specialize in these “Fear Free” techniques. There is even a certification program available to help pet owners recognize these clinics.

I am very proud to say that I am close to becoming certified and recognized as a “Fear Free” veterinarian. This is a pretty big deal to me because our patients and their care means the world to me. As our motto says “Medicine is a science, Caring is an art.” I believe this with all my heart. Every pet we see deserves to be treated with caring.

Carol GordonI knew from our first visit almost 30 years ago that you were going to be the person I could trust with the care of my pet family. You have seen us through good times and bad and all of it was easier because of the kindness and caring of you and your staff. Your love for animals shows in everything you do. We were blessed the day we found you. Congratulations.2 weeks ago   ·  1

Yesterday I saw an anxious/ becoming aggressive (out of fear) Heeler for a behavioral consultation. The lessons I learned from working with my own very fear/ aggressive Australian Shepherd, Asie, who passed away from cancer this summer, helped me to help this dog who really needed it. As I walked the Heeler outside at All Paws yesterday I felt that Asie was with us. The patient who never got walked by his own family because “he pulled too much”, walked calmly at my side looking up to me for guidance as we bonded together. Later, he walked happily at his owners’ sides, too, as they watched in amazement.

Asie taught me the importance of gaining an anxious animal’s trust first, going slowly when you make changes, never, ever forcing things forward and always leading the way with calmness and confidence so you can serve as a role model for the dog. Thank you, Asie, for helping your Mom once again. You were one of my greatest challenges, one of my best teachers and one of the important loves of my life.

As I mentioned in another post about our dog Mani, he was a super special buddy for Dave. To commemorate their important bond, I had two Mani portraits made for Dave over the years by our favorite animal artist, Matt Rinard of the Gallery Rinard in New Orleans. I ‘d like to share them with you because they really capture Mani’s unique spirit and personality.

One was a commission that reflects Dave’s interest in Charles Lindbergh (his dad knew Lindbergh from his own flying days at Lambert Field) and one with Mani riding “shotgun” in Dave’s car.

Tomorrow is “Change a Pet’s Life Day”. As I look around at our seven doggies and seven kitties I realize how much every single one of them has changed Dave’s and my life with their incredible love.

We always hope to change their lives for the better when we adopt and yet we are always surprised and grateful for the many blessings they bring to us instead.

If you don’t already have a pet in your life, consider adopting a pet who needs you. I know it will be life-changing for you both.
