2010 Newsletter 
Dear  and family,

Thank you to each and every one of our beloved Best of WNC Logoclients who voted for us in the Mountain Xpress Best of WNC Poll. Your votes truly made a difference as we were voted the #1 Veterinarian in WNC!

Some people automatically assume that the best will cost more, but we want to assure you that, in our case, that is not true. Yes, we have the equipment and capability, but each service that we offer is reasonably priced and, as you will find, probably similar to other area hospitals. Since we know everyone wants to keep the cost of pet health care as low as possible, - to read about all the ways we save you money CLICK HERE.

Halloween Pet Safety

Halloween can be a frightening time for pet kitten halloweenowners across the country. It can be scary for our furry friends too. The American Animal Hospital Association encourages pet owners to protect their four-legged family members this October by being mindful of their F.E.A.R. - food, environment, attire, and recovery.

Halloween means candy and tasty treats are plentiful and easily accessible to young children and pets. Candy, especially chocolate, is toxic to animals and can cause vomiting, restlessness, heart disturbances, and even death. Although grapes and raisins are a healthy alternative snack for humans, they can be potentially deadly - CLICK HERE to read more.

Pet Spotlight -
Kittens Saved on Highway
By Carla Horstmann, Veterinary Technician Supervisor at AHNA

Recently on my way to work at AHNA, I was Juniperhorrified to see a cat hit by a car along I-26. I immediately stopped to see if I could help, and unfortunately the poor kitty was already dead. I then saw two little kittens, one calico and one black, in the overgrown area about 50 feet from the interstate. I assumed the cat that was hit by the car was their mother. When I approached them, they fled deep into the thicket. I began to stop twice a day and put out food and water for them even though I often did not see them. With time, they started looking for me, but I was never able to get closer than 8-10 feet from them.

Over the next week, the AHNA staff and I devised a plan to set up a Have-A-Heart trap in order to safely capture them.  The kittens were very small, about 5-6 weeks old, and we were worried... To read more CLICK HERE.
By embracing new knowledge and state-of-the-art technology, our mission at AHNA is to provide the highest level of medical, dental and surgical care possible; to deliver it with integrity and compassion for our clients, but most importantly, to constantly see ourselves through the eyes of our voiceless patients who understand only that we are gentle and kind; to have as our first priority, relief of their pain and discomfort and to strive to minimize separation from the people they love.
