Welcome Dr. Toma
We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Andrew Toma as our new full-time vet. Dr. Toma joined our team in May 2013. He has worked in both mixed animal and small animal practices and has a strong background in emergency medicine and surgery with a particular interest in orthopedics and rehabilitation.
He has two Great Danes, Pequeno (Spanish for “little”) and Sydney.
He would love to meet all our clients and you are welcome to drop in to say hello.
We are proud to have a local soccer celebrity in our hospital. Lynnwood’s Leanne Kadatz set a goal-scoring record at NAIT with 59 goals in 32 games. Leanne was presented the game ball by NAIT president, Dr. Glenn Felham. Yay Leanne! We’re proud of you.
March Pet of the Month
It’s the Tooth!
This March at Lynnwood Veterinary Hospital, Pandosy is our Pet of the Month. He is a 17 year old Shih Tzu cross who was brought to see Dr. Begg because he was acting lethargic and anti-social. He just wasn’t “acting like he normally does”. The owner also noticed that Pandosy was drooling more than usual and suffering from tremors. After a thorough examination, Dr. Begg recommended a dental cleaning with extractions. Like many owners with senior pets, Pandosy’s owner was hesitant to put him under anesthetic. However, after being assured that Pandosy would first have all the appropriate pre-anesthetic testing, the owner agreed to the surgery.
This story brings nothing but good news because, not only did Pandosy do great during and immediately after the surgery, his behavior since the procedure has reverted back to a puppy-like enjoyment of life. He bounces and plays like he did when he was young – like he’s had a second chance at life. These descriptions may seem like an exaggeration but we have seen, over and over, pets that are debilitated by periodontal disease and other dental issues. This is why, in the wake of dental month, we wanted to remind you that giving your pet the best care possible sometimes comes down to a little thing like a tooth.
