!!!Announcing Doctor Sam McIlvanies Retirement!!! We are sad to say that the clinic founder, Dr. McIlvanie, is entering his retirement. It is bittersweet and we will miss him dearly when he leaves. He will be staying for a little while longer to finish out his appointments that still stand and will be continuing ultrasound referrals for a while longer. Here is a message from Doctor himself,

"As I work into retirement, I want to thank all our great clients over the years and their special animal friends for all their support and confidence in Companion Animal Clinic. I would like to congratulate Dr. Michelle Knerr on her purchase of Companion Animal Clinic and encourage you all to come in and meet her. I wish her the best of success as the new owner of Companion Animal Clinic of Yakima." -Dr. Sam McIlvanie

Losing a pet is never easy. It can take a lot of time to process the grief associated with such a huge loss. Sometimes we all need to talk to someone to help the process. Luckily we have a wonderful resource available to us. From their website:

"WSU Pet Loss Hotline volunteers are a group of Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine students who have received limited training in grief counseling by licensed therapists.
Our goals are to help those who contact us through the death or impending death of an animal. As volunteers, we offer compassion and understanding. In addition to our training, many volunteers have lost animals too, and experienced much of what most people feel at this difficult time. By helping others through their loss we also hope to become better, more compassionate veterinarians. Most of all, we want you to understand that it is perfectly natural to feel the way you are feeling.
Please call or email us if you want to talk—we are here to support you, and will respond as soon as possible."

Getting Help with an Unexpected Veterinary Bill has Never Been Easier
Pets are family. When they get sick or hurt, we’d do anything to make them better. But that anything usually comes with a cost.

Upon approval, your vet is paid and your pet gets the care they need. There are no hidden fees or retroactive interest charges – just simple, affordable options for pet owners in need.

This little puppy had a home remedy flea treatment that smelled like cloves and cinnamon and even gave some of the staff headaches! The fleas didn't like it but they were all still alive and kicking. This is a good illustration of how some home remedies don't work. If you have a flea problem, please call our clinic first before trying any remedy or store bought medication.
We offer many safe products including Frontline topical treatment or spray, flea shampoos, and Nexguard.

01/26/2017

Heartworm disease can be found in all 50 states. It is potentially life threatening and treatment costs can be more than 10 times that of prevention, not to mention the potential side effects of the treatment itself. While it is true that our Pacific Northwest climate puts our dogs at less risk, the number of cases in our area have been increasing over recent years and experts believe the number of cases will continue to rise. In addition, many of us travel with our dogs outside of this area, where the risk of infection is higher. For these reasons and more, it is important to become acquainted with heartworm disease.

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body. Heartworm disease affects dogs, cats and ferrets, but heartworms also live in other mammal species, including wolves, coyotes, foxes, sea lions and—in rare instances—humans.

Heartworm disease is a serious, progressive disease. The earlier it is detected, the better the chances the pet will recover. There are few, if any, early signs of disease when a dog or cat is infected with heartworms, so detecting their presence with a heartworm test administered by a veterinarian is important. The test requires just a small blood sample from your pet, and it works by detecting the presence of heartworm proteins.

We process heartworm tests right in our clinic. Results are obtained quickly. If your pet tests positive, further tests may be ordered.

We at Companion Animal Clinic are happy to answer any questions you may have about heartworm prevention.

Please spread the word and let's find a good foster home for this little girl. Wags to Riches is a wonderful organization.

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1155706874482971&id=129711460415856

**MEDICAL FOSTER NEEDED** Wags to Riches needs your help. This dog was found abandoned at a trailer and from the pictures you can tell she was there for a while. Wags to Riches has a temporary foster for her, but is looking for a medical foster. Someone who can help this Frenchy put on some weight and take care of her until she gets adopted. All food and supplies are paid for, she just needs a home where she can relax and rehabilitate for a month or two. Please email our foster coordinator, Mary, at [email protected] if you can help.

Holiday Safety Tips for your Pets:

Unplug the Christmas tree and block your pet's access to it when you are not able to supervise. Lights and ornaments may look like appealing toys to pets, many of which may be dangerous if ingested or chewed. Other decorative items that are potentially toxic or dangerous include mistletoe, poinsettia plants, lilies, tinsel, electrical cords, gift-wrap ribbons and lit candles. Do not let them drink water in the base of your live Christmas tree if you have added plant preservatives.

Ingestion of holiday foods can cause foreign body/toxic reaction / pancreatitis. Inappropriate bones (e.g. turkey bones), chocolate, high fat foods, onions, macadamia nuts, raisins, and grapes are some foods that are very dangerous. Provide your dog with a special enrichment toy (i.e. Kong, Twist-n-Treat) during large holiday dinners to discourage begging and to prevent your pets from eating human food items that may be high in fat. Your guests may not realize that certain foods are toxic for pets, so be sure to inform them before they may sneak your pet some treats.

If your pet does not do well with visitors, it may be best to board her if you are having a large gathering in your home during the holidays. If that is not possible, try to set up a safe, quiet room where stressors are minimized and visitors will not bother your pet. Enrichment toys, dog appeasing pheromone, soothing music, and a source of sound-blocking white noise may also encourage relaxation in this special room.

Some pets may not travel well and may feel more secure if left home with a pet-sitter, or boarded, rather than traveling with you over the holidays.

We at Companion Animal Clinic just love working with the pets in need from the shelter. They have so many treasures over there, like Joe!

This is Joe. He is a shelter cat. He had a broken tibia and femur. The injury probably occurred 3 or 4 weeks ago. The tibia is stable but we repaired the femur. There were a lot of adhesions on the femur that had to be dissected free to be able to repair the bones. He is a really nice cat and he has a foster home lined up for him. Get in touch with the Humane Society if you'd like to give Joe a forever home!

This boy is missing. If you see him come in please hold him for me. There is a reward for his return. His name is Ricochet and he is indeed microchipped. He is a broken coat Jack Russell Terrier and coming 16 weeks old. I have papers, vet records, pictures.

My number is 512.743.7280 I also have pics from his breeder and him and I together. I need him back beyond what words could say.

He went missing Aug 28th around 8am off Mapleway in Gleed area.

I lost my 12 year old Maltese named Daisy Mae the afternoon of May 28th, 2020. I live on South 20th Avenue. She got through our fence. She was not wearing a collar because it was giving her knots in her hair and is not micro chipped. She just recently went to the groomer. So, her hair is pretty short. Please contact me if you've seen her. 509-961-1932

Thank you.
Does your clinic perform OFA eye screening exams? Also I see you list reproductive services. Do you have ability to store Fresh Chilled semen delivered while female is in season ?
Got a new baby! Will see you soon for a chip and checkup. Meet Katie!
