Cats, plants and flowers

Many houseplants we buy can be dangerous for our cats. That's why it is important to always check before adorning our house with a new pot plant.It's impractical to draw up a complete list of all plants that are poisonous for our cats, but it's important to know that some can evoke minor reactions when ingested, while others can cause severe reactions such as kidney and liver problems or may affect the heart or central nervous system. Here is a brief overview:
Lilies are extremely toxic for cats, and ingestion of even a small amount can cause severe kidney damage
Tulip bulbs can cause severe gastroenteritis and may also affect the heart tissue, inducing cardiac disorders
Epipremnum aureum (Devil's ivy) and Spathiphyllum (like Spath or the Peace Lily) can cause severe inflammation of the lips, mouth and airways, mouth ulcers, drooling and vomiting if ingested
Azaleas, rhododendrons, cyclamens and chrysanthemums if ingested can cause severe gastrointestinal disturbances including vomiting and diarrhoea.
Lily of the valley and the buttercup can cause low blood pressure and disorientation

What plants are safe for cats?
Mint, thyme, rosemary, basil, chamomile and many aromatic plants can be used to decorate and perfume our home and are completely safe for our cat to explore and smell.Some ornamental plants are also safe for our cats, such as lavender, African violet, begonia, cornflower and petunias.
What to do if you think your cat has been poisoned
If you think your cat has been poisoned, time is of the essence. Don't wait for your pet to get sick. It is important to contact your veterinarian as soon as possible after ingestion or contact with the plant, informing them of the poison or plant they have been exposed to. The vet (That's us! 801-942-3951. Also, call poison control first, or on your way to AVC. Their number is 855-886-7965) will then be able to advise you of the best course of action to ensure the safety of your pet.

Jess is one of our talented, kind,devoted ICU nurses we value so much.
Little story about her and her amazing dog Rocky.

Rocky was originally owned by my neighbor when I lived in Camp Verde Arizona. His original name was Chocolate Star, when he was 4 months old my neighbor moved. They abandoned him in my front yard severely malnourished and he had demodex mange, he was in rough shape. I renamed him Rocky because of his "Rocky" start, and nursed him back to health. That was 10 years ago to this month and we have never looked back, he has been the best companion anyone could have asked for. He was a very clumsy puppy growing up and a little awkward. Although he is still a little clumsy and a bit of a hard headed bulldozer at times, he has a heart of gold, the most loyal companion ever and he is the happiest boy there is.

With Easter coming up, those precious bunnies in the pet stores are about to start looking all the more appealing to consumers looking for an interesting gift for their children. No doubt some parents will fall victims to the craze of wanting to do something different for their child this year, and as a result, bunnies across the country will be miserable. Some will die and others will languish because of a poorly considered decision to purchase a rabbit as a gift for a child at Easter.

Here are some of the reasons you should not purchase a rabbit this Easter. These reasons are specific to bunnies because many new owners lack knowledge about this species of animal and their care requirements, and pet stores aren't in a hurry to fill you in.

1. Rabbit don't do well with young children.
2. Rabbits are social creatures and should be kept in
pairs. However rabbits will fight if they are not
compatable. Or they will mate and average 14
babies at a time. There is already an over
abundance of unwanted rabbits at the shelters.
3. Rabbits should never be left outdoors, they will die.
4. Rabbits need space.
5. Rabbits require specialized veterinary care.
6. Rabbits require a lot of work.
7. Rabbits live long lives.
8. Rabbits have to get neutered or spayed, like cats
and dogs. A specialist is required to do this surgery, and the cost is substancially higher than that of a dog or cat.

Valentine's Day is coming up, let's share the love! Post your cutest dog and cat pictures having to do with Valentine's Day or any day, because we all know they are adorable every single day. Can't wait to see all the cuteness!
I think we all need a little fun right about now! Post your pet(s) having fun, being cute, being funny. I'll start. :) Since Valentine's day is coming up, this is perfect. This is Clara, a 7 year old pitty. She gives kisses for a small donation. Well, she'd actually give kisses for nothing at all What is your pet doing?
I’m in shock....my New Year began with me sitting in my recliner holding my dog Boo for 2 hours while he passed away. What happened? Yesterday around noon, he began panting and breathing with difficulty. I called my vet and they couldn’t get me in because they were closing at 2 and already had pets waiting for 3-4 hours. So I called every emergency vet in the area, AVC (Advanced Veterinary Care), VCA (Veterinary Care of America) and Blue Pearl Emergency in Midvale. The story was the same, a wait of 4-5 hours minimum. Even after explaining what was happening, no one seemed to think it was serious. Because of COVID-19, every vet required clients and pets to wait in their car for the whole time, not even go into the clinic with the pet. I had no transportation, I had taken my car in for repairs the day before. I would have taken Uber if it wasn’t for Covid. So I decided to wait until my daughter got off work at midnight to take him in to the emergency hospital. But at 10:30 he collapsed and went unconscious. He had seemed better an hour before but it happened so fast. I held him until he passed, all the while seeing him struggle to breathe and cry out in pain occasionally. I felt so helpless because I knew there was nothing I could do. This was one of the most excruciating experiences in my life, and anyone who knows me knows there’ve been many in my life. I hate 2020! I have lost 2 dogs and a dear aunt since May and it is very difficult to have positive thoughts about the upcoming year. Please keep me in your thoughts.....
I need care
Extraordinary service and care! Everyone here is not only professional but also caring and compassionate. Shawntel took excellent care of my injured dog and showed such kindness and empathy. She explained things so well to me which made me feel so much better than when I first arrived. I truly can’t say enough good about the doctors and staff at this remarkable facility! Definitely need to come here for any pet emergencies you may have.
I posted this review on the main website today. It is unfortunate to say the least. Extremely upset & worried about our dog tonight.
This crazy girl is alive and well thanks to AVC! She needed an emergency c-section a couple years ago. We lost the litter, but my girl is alive and well (and spayed). Thank you AVC!
Thank You AVC Team for the wonderful and essential care you provide! - Brandyn Bodily & your friends @ Covetrus
I would ask people not to ever take their pets their, I took my dog for a leg laceration this people wanted to amputate my dog leg, she is only a year old, my dog has no broken bones, I took my dog to Hill Crest this Dr. not only give us hopes about my dog he also personally got out of his office and carried my dog himself, his words were I don’t see why we have to amputate the leg there is no broken bones we can save it. This people are careless. I will post pictures of my dog ones is heal.
On October 19, 2019 my former feral outdoor cat came home with a lower jaw deglovement. Meaning all the skin on her lower jaw was hanging. We thought she'd been attacked by a dog. Turns out she likely sustained a fall or likely tried to jump down from too high. AVC took her right in, evaluated her, and their amazing vet sewed her already partially healing lip up so good she's completely whole minus some teeth she broke due to said fall. She's happy, healthy, and now 100% learned to be indoor only. From feral to housecat. Thank you AVC!!! amazing!!
I just want to say thank you to the wonderful staff at AVC, especially Dr. Roberts. They are so excellent, caring and understanding. They saved my dogs life, I'm forever grateful. I just can't say that enough. ❣️
Earlier this year we had to bring Tori in, she was in really bad shape and near death with her kidney failure. Thanks to the consistent help from Dr. Bachman and many other wonderful doctors and veterinary techs at the hospital, today she is celebrating her 15th birthday with a special dog safe cake! (She did not eat the whole cake! She got only a small sliver along with her regular prescribed food) Thank you!!!
