I wanted to give a shout out to one important April holiday that I forgot to mention on time.

Yesterday was National Superhero Day. As a devoted follower since childhood of all things Superman- related, I absolutely have to mention this special day. So to all of my personal Superheroes; Superman, Flash, The Hulk, Spiderman, Aquaman, Batman, Ironman, and on and on, and to your favorites as well, you all rock!

With the allergy season upon us, I am seeing itching and scratching pets every single day at All Paws and, just when we really need it, a new, innovative injectable medication called Cytopoint, has arrived to help. Cytopoint is a biological therapy now available for doggy allergy sufferers that helps to neutralize one of the main proteins that send “itch signals” to your dog’s brain (sorry, but it’s not available yet for cats). It is not a drug and does not need the assistance of your dog’s liver and kidneys in order to function. The treatment is very safe and can be used in dogs of any age. One injection will work for 4-8 weeks to relieve your dog’s itching, scratching, licking and biting at its skin and help to prevent skin infections from developing. As a veterinarian who loves her patients and wants to provide them with the best and safest treatments always, Cytopoint sounds really exciting. Please call All Paws for more information about Cytopoint or call if your dog is suffering from allergies already; we can help.

P.S. We can help kitty allergy sufferers, too, just not with Cytopoint

Today is National Administrative Professional’s Day or, as I like to think of it, “Clinic Services Supervisor’s Day” (which is the closest thing All Paws has to an Administrative Professional) after my own favorite veterinary professional, Priscilla. As most of you already know from calling and visiting All Paws, Priscilla is wonderful. She assists me in all things veterinary and makes my life so much better. So, I thought I would take this opportunity to thank Priscilla for all that she does on a daily basis to help me, our great clients and our sweet patients. We love you , Priscilla –Our Pets

This week I’ve been spending some time each day at Jefferson City Animal Shelter with Lucy, the 1-2 year old, sweet Coonhound soon to be up for adoption. Lucy and I have been taking calming walks together on the great paths around JCAS. We’ve passed by people, people riding bicycles, people walking dogs and people with their children. Lucy has heard crazy noises, passed by cars, and even crossed busy streets alongside me. Her anxieties have caused her issues at times, but she is getting better everyday and I’m really proud of her.

So, think about Lucy if you’re able to open your home and your heart to a darling girl who needs some attention. If you’re interested in Lucy contact JCAS. Then I’d be happy to meet with you at JCAS and give you tips to help make Lucy’s introduction into your family a great one.

Here are photos of sweet Lucy who is looking for a forever home and family. Lucy is currently at the Jefferson City Animal Shelter. I am working with her to calm her anxious behaviors and help prepare her for adoption. Lucy looks like a combination of my female Coonhound, Pastrami (adopted by me and Dave from JCAS) and our boy Coonhound, Giuseppe, who was adopted through the Puppies 4 Parole organization.

As the Mom of three Coonhounds I can tell you that these are special dogs. They are sweet, sensitive, amazing, and the loves of Dave’s and my life.

Please contact Jefferson City Animal Shelter if you’d like to learn more about Lucy.

Today, I began doing some behavioral work at the Jefferson City Animal Shelter with a sweet Coonhound named Lucy who suffers from anxieties. Lucy should be ready for a forever home soon, but, for things to go well, she needs a special home with a family who understands her issues. I want to help with all of this. I’ll be working with Lucy several more times and then I want to offer my services to help make Lucy’s transition a successful one into her new home. As someone who lives, and loves and helps many anxious pets I can tell you how rewarding it is to help them make changes not to mention that Coonhounds are awesome.

Lucy deserves a great family. Contact All Paws or Jefferson City Animal Shelter if you’re interested in Lucy. I hope to show you a photo of her soon.

We have two great holidays to celebrate today: National Pet Day and Dog Therapy Appreciation Day. As someone who has spent her entire life loving and appreciating pets, and who has also been blessed to spend years taking therapy dogs to visit local assisted living facilities, and who has a cousin in Dallas who now owns three beautiful and amazing therapy dogs, I think these are wonderful holidays indeed. So, celebrate with your pets today. As one of my favorite new plaques says, “When in doubt, hug your pet”!

Have a happy day.

Today, April 10, 2017, is All Paws Medical & Behavioral Center’s 37th anniversary! How about that? Coincidentally, it also happens to be National Hug You Dog Day which is very fitting because at All Paws we love to give dogs and cats kisses and hugs.

I will tell that, after 37 years at All Paws, all I would wish for is that I could have 37 more. I love what I do. I love being your veterinarian. I love caring for your pets. And I love that mine is a profession where you can try to make a difference.

I thank all of you for believing in me and All Paws. I am surrounded by the best staff, the best clients, the very best furry patients, the best friends and family and the most amazing husband to share this journey with me.

Here’s to the next 37 together. I can’t wait

Yesterday was very bittersweet for me. It was my birthday. Dave took the day off and we were blessed with a visit from my brothers (one is my brother by blood and one is my brother by choice). I got many sweet phone calls from family and friends and messages of Happy Birthdays on Facebook. These things made my day wonderful. However, I also had to say goodbye to our little Westie boy, Duckie Doodle, yesterday. Duckie had cancer that affected his ability to breath. He had been ill for almost 2 years. Yet, he lived every day filled with sweetness and fun. He still followed me everywhere, played a favorite toy game with Dave and kept up with his brothers and sisters. He was a tough guy when he needed to be and a lover and a great kisser all the rest of the time. Duckie loved life and he made the most of every single day. He taught me and Dave what it means to be brave.

Duckie’s health started to worsen and he slowed down badly this weekend. I tried some treatments that had worked in the past, but nothing helped this time. I selfishly prayed that we could have a few more days together, but it wasn’t meant to be. So, yesterday morning he and I made a last trip to the clinic together. He was ready which made our decision clear, but Dave and I were not ready at all.

Duckie was a huge part of our life. To say he will be missed is the biggest understatement ever. Dave and I are broken-hearted.

Today is the first day I have lived without a Westhighland Terrier in my life since I was 15 years old when I chose the first Westie (Mac) in a long line of Westies I have loved. Dave and I are blessed to be surrounded by 6 other amazing dogs and 7 cats, but life seems very strange and empty without the joy of a fun-loving Westie.

Ok, so it isn’t the best weather out there and it is pretty soggy walking, but today is officially “Take a Walk in the Park Day”. How can you ignore a holiday like that? I certainly can’t, and, for me, the only fun way to walk in the park is with your furry best friend. So, of course, my doggies and I walked this morning (although it was pretty muddy out there) while our kitties chose wisely to stay indoors. And later at All Paws I had a great time teaching a “Walk Your Dog Class” to a sweet, but anxious black and tan Coonhound and his family which was lots of fun, too.

In my opinion every day is a great day to take a walk with your pet in the park or any place else. I highly recommend it. Let me know if you also braved the weather and walked your pets today.
