Last month Laramie was unfortunately hit by a car. She came walking into the clinic with just a few bumps and scrapes. We thought it best to keep her for observation through the afternoon, and good thing we did. About 2 hours later Laramie started to have seizures, which indicated she had been hit hard enough to cause brain swelling. We Immediately started her on IV fluids, steroids & sedation to keep her body under control. With a lot of patience and prayers Laramie was back to walking, eating and normal activity within 4 days. She is back home, acting like nothing ever happened and enjoys wrestling with her newest little puppy sister, Belle.

Todd came to us in February feeling sick with a very high fever! He spent several nights with us on IV (intravenous) fluids and antibiotics. After several days his fever finally broke and he started to act like his frisky self. Todd was feeling great until beginning of March when he started favoring his front leg. Luckily, after x-rays, we determined it was just a sprain. With a little pain medication he is back to new!

Winnie is a very special girl for us here at Willow Creek Vet! Her parents take excellent care of her doing yearly wellness exams, geriatric blood work and urinalysis. Due to Winnie's age, she has many benign fatty tumors, which we also keep a good eye on by doing yearly tumor mapping & measuring. One of Winnie's fatty tumors became a little larger in size than what we felt comfortable with, with a quick surgery we removed it & sent it into the lab for diagnostic testing. Luckily, the tumor came back as a benign lipoma (fatty tumor), causing no problems in her future health!
