New Enhancements Make Pets' Visits More Comfortable

Everybody knows that it's scary for dogs and cats to come to the vet, right? Wrong! Here at Animal Hospital of North Asheville, we're always looking for ways to increase comfort and reduce fear in our patients. We love hearing about dogs who get excited to come see us, or cats who love our snuggling and treats. We have recently added some new features to make your pet's visit even more comfortable and low stress.

Facial Swelling -
A Common Problem
Has your dog ever had swelling in front of an eye to the left or right of the bridge of the nose? What could that be? As it turns out, it is seen fairly commonly. Do you have any idea what the cause could be?


There are many possibilities such as being physically struck in that area, having a puncture that became infected, a spider bite, a benign or cancerous growth and more. The most common cause is a tooth infection.
