With a new year, and still a declining economy, we have taken the next step!
We now offer Barter Services, on a limited basis. Ideally, we would like to
help 2 families per month, who need, but can not afford pet services.
All of our services are included. Barter services can be applied to extended stays or prepay offers, depending on the circumstances. We look forward to helping the community!
We are so very proud to announce, that we have partnered with Maudie Beez Cheese Cake and Confections to bring our community Blessings in a Backpack. This program provides children that receive free or reduced lunches the opportunity to bring food home for the weekends. No child should ever go hungry! For the Month of June, 20% of our paid services, will be donated to this program, providing food and full bellies to kids of Kitsap County. Also, a portion of funds raised will go to Maudie Beez to help them achieve a local bakery that will provide multiple jobs and increase awareness and profitability in this economy. This growth will allow us to continue to provide services, such as these, to those in need. Contributions are welcome! To be a sponsor, please visit
We are so very happy to be serving our local community, the people and of course the animals! We have the best rates in town! Not to mention our exclusive deep discounts for everything from Military and Senior, to Extended stays and Deployment rates. Our reputation has flourished, and we couldn't be happier...Thank you to everyone! <3
Pondering this evening, on those pets we say goodbye to every day. While working at a Veterinary clinic most days, we see euthanasia every day. For 13 years, I struggle each and every time we are forced to say goodbye to one of our beloved friends. SImply put, it breaks my heart. This task is never easy, as they are like family to all of us. No matter how we might try to prepare ourselves for that dreadful day....nothing ever makes the pain easier to handle. Once told by a client of ours, as loyal pet owners that we all are, "the one last loving thing we can do for our animals, is to let go as we say goodbye". This in itself is a tough road to follow. We often times find ourselves holding on. In such a way to preserve our dearest furry companions. Regardless of what they are going through, we as pet owners can be very selfish. I have been there, and faced with those circumstances. I am as guilty as everyone else. Sometimes we just have to let go, bear the pain and heart ache, all in order to seal a chapter. There is always new hope and a new day. Many memories cherished. We never have to say goodbye, because in the end, it is just a new beginning. When our animals are suffering or ill, they hurt, too. For us to hang on is not fair for them, no matter the circumstance. So friends, please remember, that nothing is forever in the physical sense. It is memories and reflections that we can rely on throughout our own personal journeys.
Interesting news, as referenced by Web MD. Some dogs can be trained to sniff out lung cancer, on humans breath. Now, we all know dogs have been used to smell out many thins, but this takes on a whole new level. By detecting the cancer on the breath of human counter parts, these trained dogs can save lives, yet again. CT scans and xrays can be used to diagnose cancer, however, early detection can mean the difference between a full chance of recovery and a life long battle.

Among other issues our economy faces, our dogs are becoming more and more prone to catching the highly contagious Parvo Virus. It has been recorded, that the increase in this horrible virus, has claimed nearly double lives, compared to recent years. It is important to keep your pets up - to - date on Vaccinations, that can help prevent the spread of Parvo. The common Distemper or DHPP, 5 in one or 7 in one vaccination helps deter this bad case of Parvo. Understanding the disease is relatively simple. If you are social with your dog by taking them to dog parks, groomers, pet stores, or kennels, your pet is at a greater risk. The Parvo Virus is highly contagious, and can be active in the soil or ground for many years. Meaning, your pet can pick it up, long after the exposure has occurred. The virus is spread through contact, and can live on objects for months, even years. If your pet has contacted Parvo, the common incubation period, before showing symptoms is 7 to 10 days. Symptoms such as vomitting, diarrhea, lethargy, blood
in stool or vomit, decreased thirst or appetite, can all be related to Parvo. The cost of treating parvo is expensive, ranging from $800 - $2000, depending on the severity of the case. The course of treatment can be horrifying and unbearable for some. Keep in mind, that Parvo can be deadly, if not treated. In the end, it is best to make sure your pet is well vaccinated.

Though, it is true, this dog is simply amazing. This is a story we felt compelled to share, as it shows the courage and strength of a dog, left with no hope of survival. Naki'o, a survinor, Left abandoned by his family in a forclosed home during harsh winter months. This poor pup managed to step into a cold puddle, all four of his paws freezing to ice. Bless his heart. He was rescued, barely alive, starving and having 4 frost bitten paws. Ultimately, his paws had to be amputated. His angel, a Veterinary Technician took him as her own, Carried him every where, to potty, to play, andnever once gave up hope. Naki'o was far from being a normal dog. He required attention that some owners could not or would not invest in. Over time, the Technicial who adopted Naki'o, found a company to develop custom orthodics just for him. Originally fit with only 2 new paws, the company donated the other 2, making a complete custom fit. Finally, Naki'o could enjoy his life, running, playing, jumping, just like a normal dog. Amazingly, he adjusted well to the fit, almost instantly. Watch his progress as he continues his journey!

You read it right! This poor pup, found wandering in Seattle, went days with a jar stuck on his head. With no way to see, hear or smell and unable to eat. Left blindly pacing about, until two bystanders spotted the critter while working in their yard, mid-day. It was clear the pup had gone days without food as you could see his ribs beneath the fur. Courageously, the two men were able to free the jar from the coyotes head! The pup quickly, and almost happily bolted into the nearby thicket!

Yes, It is true!!
A glowing beagle is definitely on the list of things we never expected to see.
But South Korean scientists seem to have made it a reality in hopes of finding cures for diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinsons. A glowing beagle is definitely on the list of things we never expected to see.
But South Korean scientists seem to have made it a reality in hopes of finding cures for diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, according to Reuters. While genetically engineering a puppy to glow is controversial to say the least, the project aims to help researchers identify possible side-effects of certain treatments that could occur in humans.
Tegon, as the pup is called, may hold the key to many human diseases, as the glow-in-the-dark property can be controlled with the addition of an antibiotic called doxycycline.
ByeongChun Lee, a co-author of the paper on Tegon that will appear in the journal Genesis, told Discovery News that the gene triggers a real glow under UV light. Without UV light, Lee told Discovery that you can still see a slightly yellow glow in the dog's skin.
The practical application of the ability to make the dog glow helps to identify possible complications from diseases, without harming the dog.
