This adorable little dog is Chloe. She came to see us at UrgentVet Pet Clinic in Ballantyne because she ate a button off of her dad’s baseball cap.
Chloe’s treatment plan included x-rays to try to find the button and also some medications for her upset tummy. She’s doing much better and her dad is hanging his hat up high from now on.
Maverick the cat visited the clinic with a persistent cough. Our doctor ordered radiographs (aka X-rays) to show what was causing the cough.
The doctor sent Maverick home with some medications to help suppress the cough and allow him time to recover. We also requested that his pet parents check-in with his regular vet for continued care and monitoring.
At Your Service
Mike Wazowski is the clinic cat at our beautiful Ballantyne, North Carolina location. Although he’s still technically a kitten, he’s already adept at helping pets who visit UrgentVet feel welcome and at ease. Mike lost an eye at an early age, but he keeps the remaining one on the happenings at the clinic at all times.
Dr. Estefania Calle grew up in Cuenca-Ecuador. At the age of 4, she quickly realized she felt a purpose to make a difference in animals’ lives. The veterinary world was no stranger to Estefania, as her Aunt was her inspiration to become a veterinarian. From there, her path became clear when she received her Bachelor of Science in Animal Health and Behavior with a focus on Wildlife Ecology from Unity College in Maine. From there, she went on to achieve her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnician degree from the Universidad de Cuenca, Ecuador.
Known for her passion for conversation, animal health, and rehabilitation, Estefania has over 9 years of experience in the veterinary field including 4 years of wildlife rehabilitation experience in South America serving some of the world’s most endangered species. During her tenure, she has taken over 200 hours of coursework specifically around Avian Medicine to help with the rehabilitation of raptors in Ecuador where she worked at Amaru Biopark. Estefania has dedicated her professional career to raptor medicine, wildlife conservation, and continued lifelong learning.
When she is not at UrgentVet-Ballantyne, Estefania can be found in her home here in Charlotte, NC with her husband and rescue kitty. Estefania is currently working to certify her Veterinary Medicine Degree with the AVMA so she can continue to learn and grow her practice in the US.
