Taste of Compassion Nov. 7th  Presenting Sponsor Animal Hospital of North Asheville
Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be the presenting sponsor again this year for Asheville Humane Society's Taste of Compassion.

We celebrate this event and support it in appreciation for Asheville Humane Society because they never turn an animal away. They provide medical care, foster care, and adoption opportunities for thousands of animals each year. Last year Asheville Humane saved the lives of 6,111 animals! Please come out on November 7, have fun and go home knowing that you have helped to provide for the hungry and injured animals of our community. This grand event and silent auction is always a great time and this year promises to be better than ever before! There are new twists to the fun this year and a new location at 227 Cumberland Avenue in Historic Montford.

Influenza Update
Our veterinarians at Animal Hospital of North Asheville are continuing to see an occasional coughing dog, but the frequency is
about the same as before the Canine Influenza outbreak, and these dogs do not appear to be coughing due to Canine Influenza. There are several infectious organisms that cause dogs to cough, but Canine Influenza generally causes more than a cough. Influenza tends to be much more serious than other infectious coughs and often results in fever, lethargy, a decreased appetite - Click Here for more information 
Is Your Cat In Pain?
Cats have a tendency to hide when they're not feeling well, so it can be challenging to detect or see subtle changes in your cat. Their survival instinct gives them a unique ability to cover a painful condition, and, because cats are such masters at hiding pain, it's a good idea to follow an established timeline for veterinary examinations.

Research has shown that many more cats are suffering from osteoarthritis than we are aware of, especially cats - Click Here to learn more.

Detecting Cancer Early
We need your help to beat cancer! Early detection, diagnosis and treatment are critical to obtaining a positive result. Over 60% of cancers are curable. We want to get that percentage even higher. Every lump and bump is suspect until proven that it is not cancer. The time to diagnose cancer is before it has taken over and spread or before it has progressed from curable to non-curable. We must all be proactive to defeat cancer.

Follow Me - Enjoy Walks With Your Dog Again
Gus and Kola, along with their families participated in the most recent Dog Training Classes held at Animal Hospital of North Asheville on Saturdays in our Education Room. Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed worked with the families to help them become skilled at loose leash walking, along with helping  their dogs focus during distractions and strengthen their mechanical and motivational skills so future walks will be more pleasurable. All the hard work and success the families achieved in 4 short weeks shows. Way to go!
