Now Offering Digital X-Ray
Health & Wellness Animal Hospital now offers digital x-rays for pets!
Digital radiography does not use conventional film. This allows for the highest quality images, while using the lowest possible exposure of x-rays to your pet. This method is not only safer, but also more advanced as these digital images can be computer-enhanced to increase detail. We will also be able to store, print and email these digital files to share.
We are excited for this new addition and how it will improve our services for our clients!
Curing Canine Cancer with a New Veterinary Diet & Herbal Medicine
How Chinese Herbal Medicines and a New Pet Food Recipe Saved Hunter
|Hunter relaxes with his owner, Paul Gallant.|
When Paul Gallant's golden retriever, Hunter, was diagnosed with cancer four years ago, he wanted to do everything he could to save his dog. Veterinary oncologists suggested surgery, followed by chemotherapy and radiation, and told him that Hunter would only live six months unless he took immediate aggressive action.
Dr. Hannah Wells, our Chief of Staff at Health & Wellness Animal Hospital, offered a different suggestion — to pick up a wooden spoon and start cooking meals for his dog. Paul was up for the task and Hunter, who is now 7, has a clean bill of health and the cancer has disappeared!
We are thrilled to have been able to help keep Hunter living longer. And recently, Gallant started Paul's Custom Pet Food, a business that makes a variety of organic offerings for dogs and cats.
