Small Animal Veterinary Hospital
Here are our hours for the holidays! Keep in mind, we transition to our new software over New Years. We are open January 2nd, but will not be seeing routine appointments in order to have our staff begin adjusting to the new software. We ask all pickups and drop offs for boarding to be after 10:30am. Thank you in advance for your patience as we transition!
We need YOUR help!
December 26 and 27 Companion Animal Alliance will be without power due to a scheduled electrical outage on the LSU campus. The shelter will not have power for 36 hours over these three days. We need to get as many animals out of the shelter as possible during this time. To do so, we are asking members of the Baton Rouge community to temporarily emergency-foster these animals for the duration of this outage.
Emergency fosters can take an animal into their care as early as Tuesday, December 19 or as late as Saturday, December 23. CAA will be closed on Christmas Day and the 2 days following (Dec. 26-27) due to the scheduled power outage. Emergency fosters must keep the animal in their care December 25-28 and schedule an appointment on our website to return the animal once the power is restored. There are no requirements to be completed prior to choosing an emergency-foster animal. Emergency fosters must be over 18 and provide valid proof of identification.
Any questions regarding emergency-fostering can be directed to our Foster Program Manager [email protected] or our Programs Director [email protected].
Any questions regarding media coverage can be directed to our Communications Manager [email protected].
We have gotten several phone calls lately about the "mystery respiratory illness" going around in dogs. Truth is, the media seems to be making this worse than it is....
With increases in traveling, holiday get togethers, and dog boarding facilities reaching their max capacities, we are seeing periodic outbreaks of Canine Infections Respiratory Disease Complex (CIRDC), commonly termed "kennel cough". This can be caused by a plethora of infectious agents both viral and bacterial.
It is highly suggested that:
- You keep your pet up to date on vaccines such as: Bordetella (every 6 months), yearly influenza and parainfluenza BEFORE your pet has contact with other animals while grooming, boarding, in daycare, or even at social events.
- Keep your dog at home if you believe they may be ill or if you will be around a large number of unknown dogs.
- Avoid communal water bowls at parks/social outings.
-Ask your vet on what your dog should be vaccinated for depending on lifestyle.
- If your pet is sick, consider having a PCR test to help determine the causative agent if possible.
Signs that your pet needs to see the vet for CIRDCs:
-nasal and/or eye discharge
-feeling of elevated temperature
If your pet is ill, it is recommended they stay home up to 14 days after symptoms resolve. They can still be contagious. Vaccinated animals usually have milder cases that resolve quicker.
Please call or text us if you have any questions:

Maggie’s results are IN! We sure did have some surprises, but we all know Maggie is %100 perfect ! 🐾
Maggie’s DNA also revealed she is clear for over 200 genetic disorders. She is also a carrier for 2 genetic disorders, which means she carries the gene for them, but will not express the disease. This could be a problem if Maggie were to be bred only.
DNA testing is both fun and informative. Ask us about testing your dog and dive deep into your pet’s genetic makeup ! Plus, it makes a great Christmas gift 🎁
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our clients and their pets! We are thankful for your support everyday, but especially today!
WAIVED ADOPTION FEES FOR BLACK FRIDAY! 🖤
After you've recovered from Thanksgiving dinner, come by the shelter for our Black Friday special! Adoption fees will be waived for all available spayed/neutered pets.🐱🐶❤
Keep this in mind when giving your pet some of your Thanksgiving feast!
WOAH is SO EXCITED to share that Dr. Wendy Day is back! Dr. Day is available for appointments Tuesdays and surgeries and appointments on Fridays starting after Thanksgiving. She can’t wait to see everyone again and meet some new pet parents!
Fun fact: Dr. Day worked here from the very beginning before WOAH was WOAH! She worked as a kennel assistant for Downing Animal Hospital and has always considered this place home💜
Call or text us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Day!💚💜💚💜
WE HAVE EXCITING NEWS!! WOAH is upgrading our software to a cloud-based system which will make your experience with our team even better than before, and it will also provide a much-needed patient portal for you to access anytime, from anywhere.
We’re expected to go live with this new software January 2, 2024! At the start of the new year, we fully expect to have some hiccups with our new system and/or a little extra time spent by our staff in figuring out the new setup, but we are 100% confident it will all be worth it and running smoothly in no time!
In the meantime, you may notice some of our team wearing headphones (for training purposes).
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our Practice Manager, Meagan LeBlanc.
Thank you in advance for your patience during this time.

Sweet Maggie was the winner of our Embark Vet DNA test raffle at Cap City Beer Fest! She stopped by to meet us and get her sample collected (a simple cheek swab)! We can’t wait to see her results, although we have our suspicions on what breeds she may be! What breeds do you think she could have in her results?
Maggie is a rescue from Companion Animal Alliance, about 4y old, and weighs around 63 pounds🐾🐾
Her results will be revealed in about 4-6 weeks!
