Take a virtual tour of our clinic here.
Bella is a 1.5 year old French Bulldog. She was enjoying a day at the beach when she stepped on a stingray and got stung – with the barb going right into her paw. Ouch!
We used mild sedation to remove the barb and repair the laceration.
She was sent home with some pain medication, antibiotics, and instructions to rest. Bella made a full recovery and is back to enjoying running in the surf.
Sasha came in to see us with a rash on her back. Although she was feeling itchy, she made herself right at home in our Fear Free clinic.
The doctor prescribed some antibiotics, ointment, and a follow-up at her regular veterinarian.
It was great to meet you, Sasha!
