Providing Oral Comfort

Nobody is sure how Maggie broke one of her upper canine teeth, but it looked pretty painful to her family at home and to me when she presented for examination. She needed help. In our last post we highlighted digital dental radiography and how it helps us provide optimal care for our patients. In this [...]

Advancements in Medical Technology – Digital Dental Radiography

The diagnostic and therapeutic advances in veterinary medicine over the last 10 to 20 years have been amazing. For example, Dr. Gates never dreamed when he started the Cuyahoga Falls Veterinary Clinic in 1981 that he’d be able to pull a foreign body out of a dog’s stomach with an endoscope. Dental radiography, specifically digital [...]

Summer to Fall of 2014

Summer has passed us by, and at the risk of being a wet blanket, cold weather and snow will be here before we know it.

Summer Thunderstorms and Fireworks

It’s summer time in Northeast Ohio, and a seeming fixture on the daily weather forecast is “scattered thunderstorms.” And we know this at the Cuyahoga Falls Veterinary Clinic because we get more calls from our dog owners about dealing with and treating thunderstorm anxiety and phobias. The phone calls reach a climax just before Independence [...]

Ticks are Here in Northeast Ohio

The ticks are back in 2014, and it’s a no-doubter. You’d think that ticks would have taken a beating during the winter of 2013-14, but that has simply not been the case. Ticks have an incredible ability to dive and dig below the frost line when it’s cold, and then emerge even during the most [...]

Chemotherapy at CFVC

A 6 year old female-spayed Collie presented to me in September of 2013 with a growth in the mouth, right out in front of the left incisors.
