Pet Stories

Daisy the Guinea Pig

Daisy, my three year old guinea pig recently had surgery at the Animal Medical Center to remove an infected toe on her front foot.  Dr. Quesenberry tried to save it with antibiotics, cream and bandages before having to perform surgery.

A Shih Tzu Named Shai

We adopted Shai through a foster family to discover she was mostly blind from abuse. Only months later, her retina detached and she became fully blind. This brave and small Shih Tzu still acclimated well, until she suffered a stroke. We came home to a normally snuggly pup who that day could not get up off of her side. 

Kugel's Story

Kugel found us or we found Kugel only a few years ago - not sure how the story starts. But, since we first got Kugel she was very sick. The fabulous Dr. Kim Alexander helped us determine it was gastric lymphoma.
