It is the time of year that we stop to count our blessings. Among other things, here at Animal Hospital of North Asheville, we are so thankful that our patients are living longer, healthier, and more comfortable lives due to amazing advances in preventive care.  Our hospital opened in November of 1977, so reflecting back to those early days points out how much the health of our patients has improved. The blessings of preventive care are almost too numerous to count, but there are three big ones --- to read more and to learn how much longer pets live nowadays, CLICK HERE.

Cats do NOT drink this way!
Cats Drink

A recent article in the New York Times highlighted a study done by four engineers on how cats drink. Cats cannot pucker their 'lips' to create suction like humans can, and they do not create a 'cup' with their tongue like dogs do. Cats have come up with an elegant, truly feline, solution.

Cats lap water so fast that the human eye cannot follow what is happening, which is why the trick had apparently escaped attention until now. With the use of high-speed photography - to read more and to view pictures and video on how cats drink, please CLICK HERE
Pet Spotlight & Memorial - 

Becky, beloved pet of Karen Youncke, was a faithful Beckyand devoted friend.

"She was my precious little girl. She was always there for me," says Karen. "I adopted her when she was 3-years-old from a Daschund rescue group. She was so patient and devoted to me. We did everything together. She especially loved to go walking on the Biltmore Estate. In fact, I couldn't say the word 'Biltmore' around her because she would get so excited. All the staff knew her there and she could walk and chase ducks, which was one of her favorite things to do. Even when she had to have a back operation and couldn't walk for a while, that didn't stop us from taking our walks together. I simply put her in a baby buggy and off we went. She loved that buggy."

Now that Becky is gone, Karen is fostering dogs in her home in Becky's memory - to read more of Becky and Karen's touching story, 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.
