Unfortunately this week we admitted a patient who was intentionally poisoned with antifreeze. This lovely and sweet dog is struggling to recover at the clinic at this moment. Antifreeze poisoning is a horrible way to die and to intentionally poison animals is a crime. Please be aware of this and NEVER leave something like that out where an animal can ingest it.
On a lighter note, as promised we are ready to announce the addition to our team of doctors. This month Dr. Bob Perry has joined Desert Veterinary Clinic's team of doctors on a full-time basis. We are pleased to have his experience and dry wit to add to our team. Dr. Perry has been in Yuma for many years and makes his home here permanently. We are excited and honored to have him with us.
This week please think of our new graduate doctors: Dr. Munoz and Dr. Stillmaker will be heading to Phoenix to sit for their board exams. They have been diligently working under the supervision of our established doctors and we pray they will make the next transition in their careers.
