VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital National Pet Dental Quarter!!!

While February is National Pet Dental Month, at the VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital it is National Dental Quarter!!!

Dental health and hygiene affects the health and well-being of the whole body. Tartar, gingivitis and more severe periodontal disease causes pain, bad breath and can lead to other more severe diseases. We invite you to come in and allow our trained doctors and staff to provide an evaluation of your pet’s dental health. We will provide you with information about your pet’s dental condition, information about treatment options as well as help you formulate a plan to prevent disease.

From now until March 31st, schedule a dental for your four-legged friend and receive 20 % OFF routine dental services*.  Each dental service will include an Orastrip periodontal disease test, a thorough exam and cleaning of your pet’s teeth and a FREE CET home care dental product.

Schedule your pet's dental appointment today (954) 920-3556!!

*If your pet requires advanced dental services such as extractions, pre-anesthetic blood panels and dental x-rays, these services are available at an additional non-discounted cost.

Team Member of the Month- Adriana!!!

Adriana has been a VCA HAH team member for a relatively short time but her impact has been strong. After completing a day at her 'other' job, Adriana begins her night shift with our evening crew of experts. Her efficient, pleasant, and dependable qualities are put to the test has she handles the different pace of the HAH at night. She is a star!!!

Adriana is wonderful with our clients and their pets (both having made a point to let us know!) She is the person we count on to deliver the finest care to our clients even in the wee hours. She does not let us down.

We are very pleased to recognize her as our Team Member of the Month for January and "Thank" her for all her hard work.

New Gadget Let's You Play with Your Pet from Anywhere in the World

Motorola Scout 5000:

Motorola’s Scout 5000 attaches to your dog’s collar and features a camera, speaker, microphone, and GPS tracker.

Basically, it lets you see exactly what your dog sees; lets you talk to your dog when you’re not home — which is probably very weird for your dog — and even make sure your dog is safe when you’re away all from a companion smartphone app.

The Scout 5000 is fairly large for a pet-tracking device, so it will fit only medium to large dogs. This is not for your teacup designer dog. It goes on sale this summer for $200.

If these two gadgets are any indication, your pooch or kitty will soon be as connected as you are. And for pet lovers who can’t stand to be away from their little furry ones for even a minute, that’s pretty great.

January Patient of the Month- Gibby!!!

This month we recognize a HAH patient with a different sort of story for our monthly highlight.

Gibby, a 3 year old Cavalier Kings Charles, is a regular boarder with us. Because his dad travels often, he needs someone to watch Gibby and ensure he is taken special care of.

Over the last year, Dr.'s Patterson and Lukens have been his primary care giver and to say our staff has fallen in love with him -would be an understatement! Gibby even got in on the Santa pics this last year while he was boarding!

As it is so often true, our patients became like family to our staff and doctors. Gibby is a great example of that. While he is home with his family now we look forward to his Dad's next trip so we can spend time with our four legged friend.

Still Donations are coming in....Thank you Amatheon!!!

So many organizations heard about our BMOW Food Drive and reached out to us to see how they could help. One such organization, Amatheon Parmaceuticals is a wonderful example of this. As a product provider of the VCA HAH, they saw our efforts and wanted to help. By launching their own collection site within their company they delivered a tremendous donation of food to our doorstep just after the Christmas holiday. 
Founded in 2002, Amatheon is the leading Cross-Over Medication® provider in the nation. It is their chief goal to bring both the veterinarian and consumer a cost effect and FDA approved variety of medications to be used for animals. Cross-over Medications® (Human Drugs used in Animals) has created the largest short supply list of the FDA’s history. Amatheon and its affiliate, NextSource Biotechnology are working together to help the companion animals gain back those drugs in a secure FDA approved use for both humans and animals.  
One of their primary goals for this upcoming year is to involve their company with local veterinary practices to establish relationships and help our furry friends throughout the year. 
"We want to orientate ourselves to serving the public, thus demonstrating a commitment to the community by involving our company in services and volunteer activities.  We know this donation is just the beginning of Amatheon’s future involvement in our community. We can change the minds of many with these acts of kindness."
The VCA HAH is very proud to partner with Amatheon in community and in business.
