Laser therapy: A promising trend in veterinary medicine

Jen Reeder

Denver resident, Sue Kohut, was alarmed when her Great Dane puppy, Beauxmont, became lethargic and developed swollen legs that were hot to the touch. At just five months old, the pup was diagnosed with hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD), a painful bone disease that can occur in fast-growing large and giant breeds. Read more

Kindness Animal Clinic Coronavirus Plan

We continue to be open our revised hours and  to follow social distancing protocol by utilizing Pet Only Appointments. We are having clients pulling up curbside and letting us know when you arrive.(360-794-8813). 

 

In the midst of recent developments with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are implementing a plan to help protect our clients and our team. So far, there has been no evidence pets are able to transmit the virus back and forth with humans. Our concern is human to human transmission. The greatest risk for transmission is through airborne particles and surface contamination. Our hospital policy already dictates we routinely disinfect surfaces with a medical grade disinfectant, and wash our hands frequently. We are adjusting our practice to focus on limiting our exposure between humans.

 

 

We will happily shake paws...but NOT hands!

 

 

 

 Our plan:

 

Internal Cleaning

  • In addition to our regular exam room cleaning, we will be cleaning all door handles between appointments.
  • We will be disinfecting our phones, desks, keyboards and mouse surfaces frequently.
  • Our credit card machine is on the front desk for you to operate yourself and we will be disinfecting it after each use.

Appointments

  • We don’t want our pet patients to go without veterinary care. We have set up a Pet Only Appointment:
    We will meet you in your car (call us when you arrive 360- 794-8813) or just outside our front door, and take your pet inside for an exam. You can remain in your car during the appointment and Dr. Garver will speak with you on the phone about your pet. We will check you out over the phone, and meet you at the front door or car with your pet and any needed medications.
  • For surgical drop offs, we can email you the estimate to complete prior to your arrival. You can either scan it and email it back, or hand it to us when you arrive with your pet. Post surgical pet pick up will be the same as for a pet only appointment. We continue to follow American Veterinary Medical Association’s  guidelines and will be restricting elective surgeries and dentistries in order to conserve medical resources for our human medical care workers and patients.
  • We will also happily do car side delivery for prescriptions and pet diets...just let us know when you call to request them.

Hours

In addition, we will be revising our hours.  Starting immediately...and for as long as needed...we will now be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9AM to 5PM with our usual closure 12:30-1:30 for lunch. We will be closed on Wednesday and the weekend. These new hours are to allow us to deep clean our hospital and to minimize our staff exposure. We will keep you updated through our Facebook page, website, and email. Our goal is for Kindness Animal Clinic to remain a safe place for you, your pets, and our staff.

If you have any questions about our Covid 19 policies, please give us a call at 360-794-8813.

Great for Fireworks: Sileo

Is your dog afraid of the sound of thunder or fireworks? They may have noise aversion - characterized by trembling, pacing, panting, hiding, or abnormal clinging to you. Or worse. Destroying property, running away and self-trauma also occur with dogs who fear noises. This is a real medical condition that if left untreated WILL progress. We now have prescription medication available for this! Sileo is the only FDA-approved treatment for noise aversion and it works by blocking norepinephrine receptors in the brain to reduce levels of anxiety and fear.  It's easy to use,  works quickly and reliably and it safely calms your dog withOUT sedating them. 

Sileo is a gel formulation of dexmedetomidine that is placed between the cheek and gums and is absorbed through the mucous membranes - NOT swallowed. It comes in an easy to dose syringe. We like it because it works fast--within 30-60 minutes and the effect typically lasts 2-3 hours. Doses can be repeated up to five times if needed. It can either be given to the dog 30 to 60 minutes before the noise (fireworks) is to occur, or immediately after the dog first shows signs of anxiety related to noise. While on the medicine, the dog remains calm, fully functional, and is able to interact normally with the family. No more concerns about your dog falling and hurting themselves while medicated. It is a very economical choice for small dogs...larger dogs naturally require larger doses. If your dog needs some assistance to get through the 4th or thunderstorms, we can help! For more information on Sileo, go to this website.
