Incessant Dog Barking: MAKE IT STOP!!!

Dr. Julaine Hunter

      Do you or your neighbor have a dog who incessantly barks for no reason or for no reason you can perceive?  Nuisance barking is a big problem in some pets.  In some parts of the country hefty fines and even incarceration of the perpetrator is performed.  My main rule of training is as follows: Behaviors that are rewarded INCREASE so reward your dog with attention, affection or treats only when she is calm and IGNORE bad behaviors and REDIRECT them and praise for the positive behaviors she displays. …Read More

Easter Lilies are Toxic to Cats

Easter Lilies are Toxic to Cats 
Julaine Hunter, DVM

Spring is a time of new growth and rebirth, celebrated by many with symbolic plants. One of the most commonly given and received is the Easter lily. Unfortunately, this plant, along with some of its beautiful cousins, is highly toxic when consumed by cats. Ingestion results in kidney damage which, if left untreated, is often fatal within three to seven days.

Members of the species of the genus Lilium (Easter lily, Tiger lily, Rubrum lily, Japanese show lily and Asiatic hybrid lily), some species of Hemerocallis (day lilies) and possibly …Read More

Answering the Question: Is she Spayed?

Revolutionary test determines female reproductive status in both dogs and cats… without surgery!!!

J. Hunter, DVM 

Veterinarians and veterinary staff members, rescue groups and animal shelter

employees have long struggled to answer the following question when evaluating a female stray: “Is she spayed?”


Most of us can tell an intact male dog or cat from a neutered one as they typically will proudly display and broadcast their reproductive status far and wide.   With the females of these species it is very different.

Why? No definitively accurate blood test for determining spayed or unspayed status has been available.

Julaine Hunter, DVM
LazyPaw Animal Hospitals

Warmer summer months are a great time to chill with your four legged friend outside. But when warm weather turns hot, you should take extra precautions to keep your pup cool. 

Dogs pant instead of sweat, but when weather is hot and humid, sometimes panting isn’t enough. It’s important to know when your pup is too hot and take measures to keep them as cool as possible when the temperature cranks up.

Know the signs of heat stroke.

If your dog drools excessively, has …Read More

Diplomate ABVP (Equine Practice)

LazyPaw Animal Hospitals

Hyperthermia is the scientific name for elevated body temperature.  In dogs, elevations of rectal temperatures above 103°F are considered to be abnormal and hyperthermic.  In the absence of illness, body temperatures in excess for 106°F are commonly attributable to exposure to excessive external environmental temperatures.  Multiple organ failure and often death occur when the body temperatures reach 109°F.  

Unlike us, dogs lack the ability to sweat efficiently, relying instead upon panting to exchange heat.  Vigorous exercise during hot days or over-exertion in relatively low humidity and temperature situations can result in …Read More

Kennel Cough Vaccines Are Annual

Bordetella bronchiseptica is a ubiquitous bacterial organism which causes respiratory disease and is most commonly seen in canine patients; however, strains do affect other mammalian species. Spread or transmission is typically through direct contact to respiratory secretions thus the greatest risk of exposure occurs in situations where dogs are in close proximity to one another: boarding facilities, grooming salons, play cares, dog parks and competitive events.

So how do dogs contract the causative agent in the first place?

Well there’s always a source. The problem is that the infected individual may not be recognizable as it takes a …Read More

Many clients have expressed concern with regards to recent, local reports of raccoon distemper cases. Closely related to the human measles virus, the viral agent, CDV or canine distemper virus.  CDV is typically contracted by animals in an immune susceptible state. In dogs, this means that puppies aged 3 to 6 months are at greatest risk for infection AND have the highest rate of mortality. Unvaccinated adult dogs are also at great risk to contracting this disease. History has shown us that the disease can spread like wildfire, especially under …Read More
