As CAVA quickly approaches our six month anniversary, we would like to thank our wonderful staff and clients. We would not be here without you all. Dr. Russell and Dr. Crosier appreciate all of the community support and look forward to meeting many more wonderful patients in the new year. We’ve been having some fun taking candid pet portraits with our holiday display. Have a joyous holiday.
In The Community
Dr. Crosier will be hosting a presentation at the Appoquinomink Library on Wednesday January 23rd at 6 PM. The topic for the presentation is basic pet care. Content will be relevant to both current pet owners as well as those considering the addition of a new pet to their home. Both children and adults alike will benefit from the program material. Be sure to join us for an informative session.
Holiday Pet Safety
As we continue into the holiday season, please keep in mind things that may not be safe for your pets. Holiday guests and gatherings can be stressful for some pets and may be a source of hazardous food items. Holiday decorations, tree trimmings, and festive plants can be problematic if ingested. Take necessary precautions in order to avoid an unplanned medical visit.

Is Your Pet Microchipped?
A microchip can be implanted for almost any pet, yes rabbits and ferrets included, and placement can be incorporated into any veterinary visit. The small chip can mean the difference between getting your beloved pet returned to you or not in the event that something unforeseen happens. Some pets come to their new homes with chips already in place while families acquiring young puppies and kittens need to incorporate the chip placement into the wellness plan. The procedure is quick, and often with the use of a yummy treat or snack the pet is distracted enough not to be bothered by the chip being inserted. Once the chip is in place it is effective for the life of your pet. All pets benefit from having a chip placed, but it is especially important for pets that travel away from the home with the owner, pets that are moving to a new home environment, and pets that have a tendency to escape from the confines of their home. Please talk with any of our doctors or staff if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment for microchip placement.

One of the best compliments that we can receive is the personal referral of your friends and family.
