Earlier this week my dog got hit by a car he went to Friendship Hospital for Animals and got a cast placed on his rear foot. He is currently at FHA for his bandage changes over the weekend and missing snow time with his little human sister. He loves the snow and will not be able to roll and run around in it this year; however I know you all are taking good care of him during the storm!
Plz friendship with me
Herschel is very patriotic this July 4th thanks to Dr. Glassman and his team (David and Jennifer) at Friendship Surgical Specialists and Friendship Hospital for Animals No ACL surgery will hold us back! Thank you for the special care and love you always give to Herschel and me! We love you guys!
The Outstanding Growth award is awarded to the team member that has shown the most growth since the previous year. This year, David Little has moved from the Radiology Tech position into the Friendship Surgical Specialists technician role and has excelled. David allowed for a smooth transition with virtually no hiccups to the service due to the change. Congratulations, David!
All i want for Christmas is my dog and he is still missing this holiday season. He is a small 15lb male neutered, microchipped 4 year old Alaskan Klee Kai (looks like a mini-husky) who belongs with me! My dog went missing in July from the DC area but could be anywhere by now. Please call 202-681-1231 with any information. Substantial reward offered for safe return. PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR VETS AND ANIMAL PROFESSIONALS TO SCAN ALL NEW PATIENTS FOR MICROCHIPS!!
