Here Kitty, Kitty... Bring in Your Fabulous Feline for 20% off a Visit to the Vet!

by +Thomas Gus | 07/15/2014 - 4:00pm

Offer expires 8/31/2014

That's right, University Animal Hospital in Tempe is offering 20% off when you make an appointment for one of our veterinarians to see your feline family member. Cats often hide problems and seem to be just fine, so they

don't always come in for regular check ups. We want all cats to come in for regular check ups and that means once a year for those 6 and under and twice a year for those 7 and older. During a physical exam, problems

may be detected that would otherwise go unnoticed and having blood work done will help detect any other problems such as kidney disease or diabetes which are very common in our feline friends.

So don't wait, call us today at 480-968-9275 to make an appointment and get 20% off!

University Animal Hospital announces that once again we have achieved the prestigious American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accreditation!

Currently only 3000 animal hospitals across the United States are accredited hospitals. University Animal Hospital is very proud to have been accredited since 1965 and we will continue to aggressively uphold the standards and regulations put forth by the American Animal Hospital Association. 

Please visit the web site for AAHA by following this link and find out why it is so important that your veterinarian is AAHA accredited

Tempe Veterinarian Warns about Poison in Your Pool!

by +Thomas Gus | 07/15/2014 - 3:48pm

University Animal Hospital recently had a medical case we want to share with you and feel it is important for all pet owners to be aware of the possible dangers to their pets in backyard pools.

Poison in your pool?

This is the story of our patient BeBe, an adorable 5 month old Chesapeake Bay Retriever.  True to her breed, BeBe loves to swim and her dedicated owner takes her to the pool each day to play ball.  Her favorite toy is a rubber ball that she retrieves while diving into the water. Last week after having fun in the pool,  BeBe started acting strange.  She vomited several times, and then looked glazed and unresponsive.  Within minutes she had collapsed and her gums were a pale color. 
 Luckily her owner rushed her in and Dr Flegenheimer immediately treated her with IV fluids.  After running some tests, the doctors determined that Bebe was suffering from water intoxication.   This occurs when large amounts of water are ingested.  This dilutes out the electrolytes in the body (sodium and potassium).  One serious effect of this dilution is brain swelling.  Seizures, coma or even death can occur.  Fortunately Bebe made a full and rapid recovery due to timely recognition and treatment.  Her owner now restricts her pool time and has modified play to prevent diving.  
Water intoxication is fortunately a  rare condition, but worth knowing about, as rapid action is the key to successful treatment and may save your pets life.
 We are so happy that this story had a happy ending and that we will get to see sweet Bebe for many years to come!
