Smokey was in last week for a routine procedure and just after waking up she began talking to us. Her quiet mewing gradually became louder until we realized she was hungry. Smokey devoured three small bowls of canned food before napping peacefully until her pickup time. I guess she was putting our five star service to the test. She reminded us of the saying, “As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.” – Ellen Perry Berkeley
Teddy Bear looks like his cuddly namesake, but he requires much more care than a stuffed animal. Two years ago, Dr. Westfall rescued the homeless dog and diagnosed severe heart disease. Nevertheless, his adoptive mom, Irene, shown here holding Teddy after his Mother’s Day haircut by our groomer Tina, made a lifetime commitment to doing whatever is necessary to keep him healthy. Luckily, she is related to Desiree, one of our veterinary nurses, who helps with his care. So he’s often here at Bernville Vet, and his care is “all in the family.”
Kittens are always fun to have come into the hospital, it is a joy to watch them grow. We met little Diego when he came in for a pre-op exam. As it turned out Diego had a heart murmer so we had to have extra monitoring on surgery day. On one of our many trips back to his kennel we noticed that he had made himself a little cave out of the towels. It was too cute for words so we quick snapped his picture.
Raisin is a new member of the Norman family. After the loss of their beloved Maggie, Raisin’s bright eyes and wiggly tail is just what the family needed. Raisin enjoys her visits to the clinic even though car rides are not her favorite.This photo was taken on one of her first visits to us. Being a Golden Doodle we doubt that she will be this small the next time we see her, she has very big paws to grow into.
Murphy is the newest member of the Narmi family. Since we first saw this handsome man in December he has gained a whopping eighteen pounds and he still has a lot of growing left to do. During his last visit we had the opportunity to spend some quality time lounging around and we were able to take a photo of this handsome fellow.
