April is Heart Health Month
Like people, dogs can get congestive heart failure. Causes can be congenital (born with it) or may come on with old age. Symptoms can range from coughing, difficulty breathing, and becoming tired easily. Later symptoms of the disease can be weight loss (they can lose the ability to store fat), fainting (blocked blood flow to […]
Canine Influenza – Yes, your dog can get the flu
Our area has recently had an outbreak of canine influenza and there have been fatalities from it. The flu is a highly contagious disease which can severely compromise your dog’s respiratory system. There are currently 2 strains of the virus (H3N8 and H3N2) which are capable of quickly mutating and possibly infect other species. (Source […]
Dogs left in Vehicles
This topic is always brought up each year when the temperatures are high, but low temperatures have risks too. An enclosed car can reach over 110 degrees with an outside temperature of 80 degrees. A dog can suffer brain damage and even die when exposed to excessive heat for even a short period of time. […]
I can’t say enough about how wonderful and compassionate Dr. Judy and Henry are. I first called them a few weeks ago to confirm a diagnosis of kidney disease. They came to my home and took a look at my baby, then arranged to have Ingrid come back that evening to help take a blood sample rather than having to wait until the end of the week. Sadly, the diagnosis came back the same and they too… Read more
Dr. Judy and Henry are amazingly kind people. They made the process of euthanizing our 13 yo German Shorthair Pointer a lot easier than taking him to the vet’s office. If you have a choice as to how you see your pet out of this life, please call them and let them help you through the difficult process. This at home service is truly a blessing.
Dr Judy Byarlay and Henry are exceptional people. They helped us through a very difficult period with our dog Chelsea and made it easier to absorb the tremendous loss we felt. When they first came to make a house call to see Chelsea, it made us feel at ease as they observed and examined her. I am sure Chelsea was less stressed being at home instead of on a cold table at a doctor’s office. She was … Read more
Dr. Byarlay, Henry and Ingrid are all wonderful, compassionate and patient! We asked them to do wellness exams for 2 of our extremely anxious cats and they were timely, professional and knowledgeable, making the whole process very smooth. We are sure to be long-term clients!
Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I feel for the caring folks here. I don’t think they knew quite was in store for them today when I asked them to put my 16 and a half year old pup down, but they accommodated my wishes in every way possible. They helped load and carry her on a stretcher up the very first trail trail we ever hiked together overlooking Mt. Rose. Henry and Dr. Judy are th… Read more
We had to put our baby down. They were just so kind and nice. Henry is just about the nicest guy in the world!
Death and dying are some of the hardest things to process. We called on a Sunday night and were informed that they could come tomorrow. We made arrangements for three o’clock. Our dear beloved Savanna (a 12 + year old toy Australian Shepherd) took a turn for the worst during the night. We believe she had a stroke or two. She was not able to walk straight. We knew she had congenital heart failur… Read more
Dr. Judy and Henry are very special. We are so happy to have found such a wonderful mobile pet veterinary. We had them do our puppy’s shot and also had to do a very difficult thing of putting our other dog to sleep. They were so caring, compassionate and gentle both to us and especially to our animals. Will be using them for all of our animal needs in the future. Thank you Dr. Judy and Henry… Read more
Today we put down our beloved dog Nicky. I called Homeward Bound last night to make an appointment anticipating the inevitable. I left a message filled with many emotional pauses caused by my grieving. Henry called back almost immediately. I found him to be patient, compassionate and informative. We set an appointment for today at 9:00 am. Henry and the veterinarian Dr. Byarlay showed up on tim… Read more
Homeward bound is really a dream come true. We have a 170 pound American mastiff who is very old and much less mobile than he once was. We called after our big guy had a fall in our kitchen. They came on a Saturday morning to do an exam and prescribe some meds to get Chester up and running. They were extremely punctual and spent ample amount of time making sure all bases were covered. Thank you ho… Read more
