Meet Our Clinic Pets
Jetson was on "death row" at the humane society due to perceived aggression. He is quite fearful about being pushed or potentially hit. He is enjoying his fantastic new life and loves to go sheep herding!
Jake was surrendered to Animal Doctor when his guardians could no longer care for his medical conditions. He was also brought in for euthanasia. Jake has kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, cardiomyopathy, and is now in remission from intestinal cancer. Jake is on various supplements and chinese herbs to manage his condition. Jake passed away at almost 18 years of age.
Snoopy was presented for euthanasia due to serious allergies when he was 3 years old. He used to scratch his face raw and had worn an e-collar for 3 years. After switching to a species appropriate raw diet and starting whole food supplements he is doing great. He has been Dr. Jodie's special boy for over a decade.
Ferty was found in a dumpster at a gas station in Iowa. Thanks to Dr. Jodie's daughter, Lindsay, Ferty is now a permanent Animal Doctor resident. He is a lucky boy. The Animal Doctor staff all help to care for this needy little guy. He had a broken tail and fractured pelvis. The damage associated with this injury has made him unable to urinate or defecate regularly on his own. He has a lot of accidents. So, he lives in our rubber-floored "Cat Camp."
Jasmine is gorgeous and psychotic. She is a typical Bengal, not meant to live indoors, but we love her anyway. She is now a permanent resident at Animal Doctor.
Snoops has severe summer allergies and has had two expensive urinary tract obstructions which caused his former owner to relinquish ownership. This makes him fairly unadoptable. He is on a species appropriate raw diet and many supplements to maintain him in a healthy state. Snoops developed intestinal cancer and has been put in remission using various holistic modalities.
Artie has eosinophic dermatitis, a difficult to manage skin condition which caused his last owners to surrender him. He is a work in progress and is currently a permanent clinic cat at Animal Doctor.
Bubba was brought to his local veterinarian for euthanasia due to his guardians not being able to regulate his diabetes. When he was brought in he could no longer walk without assistance. With the help of iPAW Bubba received the species-appropriate diet and insulin he needed. He was able to walk on his own and his diabetes was regulated. Bubba passed away at the age of 10.
Molly has an adrenal disorder called Cushings disease. Molly was given up to the local humane society after her owner could no longer care for her needs. Molly found her way back to Animal Doctor and has been doing well. She is on a species appropriate raw diet, whole food supplements, and chinese herbs to manage her condition.
Jack was surrendered to Animal Doctor after a urinary obstruction. Jack has been managed on a species appropriate raw diet and supplements. He is now a permanent resident at Animal Doctor.
All of these clinic pets have been given a second chance at life by Animal Doctor. You can find them roaming around the clinic or in kitty camp.
Did you know that your purchases continue to help resident pets to exist?!
Hundreds of pets would have been euthanized if Dr. Jodie had not intervened. Some were strays and brought in to the clinic for help. Others were difficult cases with guardians who felt unable to deal any longer with the situation and relinquished ownership. Many were "fixed up" and placed in new homes. Some were adopted by compassionate employees. Dr. Jodie has kept a "few." Unfortunately, some have been unadoptable due to their chronic disorders, so they live with us permanently. Others are still hoping to go home to a real bed.
