What a touching story for the holidays! Not even a year old and Charlie Murphy needed a liver transplant. A virtual stranger steps up to be his donor after being inspired by a loved one who was a donor herself. After the transplant at Nebraska Medicine, Charlie and his parents and brother will be having the merriest of Christmases!

We wanted to share a piece on our favorite organ donor and recipient!
Abbie & Charlie are both doing great!
It’s official…we made the move!!
We closed down November 1 & 2, packed up years and years worth of things in our old location, and moved into our new and improved facility. If we said it was a smooth transition, we would be lying! Lots of construction, and crew trying to finish up things while we were trying to get everything in its new place.
We wanted to share a few pictures with you and give a small virtual tour of just some of the highlights of the new building.
Here is the view when you walk in the front doors. Our gorgeous new front desk to check in you and your furry friends. We also now have all of our food and retail out front. We have divided these up into cat and dog rooms(note the Meow and Woof)
Here is Exam Room 2, Our new grievance room, and our x-ray room.
Here are some of our new boarding areas! The first with the glass door, is one of our new suites. They are spacious areas that more than one dog from the same household can stay in. They will also have small flat screen TV’s hopefully by the end of the week! Next is a view of a few of our dog runs. These can house large dogs or also a few small dogs from the same household. Last is our cat room, here is a view of some of the areas where your feline friend can stay with us.
Here are a few behind the scene shots! Our pharmacy area where we will be filling all of your pet’s prescriptions. Next is our large animal back room area. Lots of space to see your farm animal friends! Last shot of the day is our surgery room where Dr. Jeff & Dr. Danielle will be preforming all of our routine and emergency surgeries.
Hope you enjoyed this little sneak peak! Look forward to seeing you all in our new location!
In the Veterinary world, there is no such thing as a “normal” day. Every day is constantly different, and you never know when an emergency might happen. Last week, we had to perform an emergency C-section right as afternoon appointments were about to begin. Dr. Jeff went to surgery, and Dr. Danielle took over both schedules for regular appointments.
So if you are ever here, and you hear us say “we had an emergency come in, sorry we are running a little behind.” We really aren’t lying to you! So, we wanted to share with you who our emergency was last week!
This is Cookie Krause. Cookie is a Buttercream Ranch mama, and is a Great Dane. She needed help delivering her last few puppies. Welcome to the world pretty pups! Mom & pups are doing great.
Have you been noticing your pet itching and scratching more and more? Is their skin getting red and bumpy? You and your pet are not alone!
Unfortunately there is no quick answer to this, but things that could be factors are allergies or fleas. Call us and we can get you set up with an exam with either of the Doctors to find out exactly what is going on with your pet. First thing to eliminate, is if your pet has fleas or is having a reaction to flea bites. Check your pet over from head to toe for small blackish/brown bugs (that are very fast moving and hard to catch!) If you don’t see fleas but see areas with black dirt..you are seeing what is called flea dirt and unfortunately your pet has fleas. The most common areas they hang out is the base of the tail, up around ears, and the neck.
Don’t panic! We can get you through the process of getting rid of them. We will get your pet started on flea medication, either a topical or an oral. There is an option for an injection for cats as well. Activyl, Bravecto, and Effipro are just a few of the great options. We will also walk you through how to get the household rid of fleas and their eggs. We have a spray for the house, as well as some bombs. We know it is all pretty overwhelming, so let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Now lets get into the allergy portion. If your pet is struggling with allergy issues, here are some of the signs you may be seeing:
If you are wondering what it is that your pet could be allergic to, here are some of the top reasons we see pets with allergies:
We have plenty of options to help solve your pets allergy issues. Antibiotics & medications, as well as prescription food for any food allergies.
The newest development for allergies, is a new injection called Cytopoint. We have had really good luck with patients who have had chronic allergy issues. Here is a link to their website to learn more. http://www.cytopoint4dogs.com
Hope everyone has a great week!
