Your Dog Hates The Vet? This One’s For You!

Posted by Gwen Mowbray-Cashen on November 15, 2013

Courtesy of: Kaila and Dr. Gwen Let’s face it…every dog is different!  For some of our patients, a trip to the vet is their favourite event in the day (not counting breakfast, lunch and supper, of course).  These dogs tear through our doors ready to greet everyone and have a fantastic time!  Then there are… Read More

A Story That Could Take Your Breath Away!

Posted by Gwen Mowbray-Cashen on November 1, 2013

Courtesy of: Dr. Gwen Veterinarians practice veterinary medicine.  I always thought that it was an odd thing to say.  A hockey player practices slap shots or a student of music might practice the piano, but this type of practice allows for mistakes.  After all, how can one learn without making mistakes?  In veterinary medicine, however,… Read More

Truro Vet Gives Back – In Mexico!

Posted by Gwen Mowbray-Cashen on October 25, 2013

Courtesy of: Joye Who doesn’t love a winter trip down south?  Many people in our area travel once a year (or more) to visit sunny climates during the depths of our stormy season.  There’s nothing quite like the feeling of checking into an all-inclusive resort for a week of soaking up the sun.  Not a care in… Read More

I Am A Veterinary Technician

Posted by Gwen Mowbray-Cashen on October 18, 2013

Courtesy of: Charity A wagging tail or a soft purr has the ability to melt my heart in an instant.  I am a sucker for a cute, furry face and because of this, every day I wear a smile from ear to ear (and of course a layer of fur on my scrubs). I can… Read More

Getting A (Stress-Free) Handle On Your Pets!

Posted by Gwen Mowbray-Cashen on September 12, 2013

Courtesy of: Ashley One of the wonderful things about working at Truro Veterinary Hospital is the encouragement and opportunity all staff members are given to continuously learn.  Recently six of us attended a two day seminar with amazing Animal Behaviourist, Dr. Sophia Yin. Dr. Yin became a veterinarian in 1993.  Soon after, she realized that… Read More

Nothing Brightens A Day Quite Like A Kitten!

Posted by Gwen Mowbray-Cashen on August 26, 2013

Courtesy of: Joye Before you ask, no, we don’t take strays!  That sounds like a rather tough rule, but as a Veterinary Hospital we handle requests from overwhelmed folks almost daily, asking us to take in a stray cat (often pregnant or a new mom with many kittens) or rehome a kitty who just isn’t… Read More

A Tired Dog Is A Happy Dog!

Posted by trurovetblog on August 2, 2013

Courtesy of: Brea Many dog owners are surprised with the amount of energy their dog seems to have.  When dogs have too much built-up energy, they can display it in a number of unhealthy ways such as chewing, barking, and destroying anything they can get their mouths on!  My motto is “A tired dog is… Read More

Myth Busting: TVH Style!

Posted by trurovetblog on June 28, 2013

Courtesy of: Kaila I would like to clear up a few myths about dog training in this blog, as I see these myths in practice far too often. Even though positive dog training techniques have become widespread, “negative” or discipline-based training using physical force has become more common.  This is likely due to the increasing popularity of… Read More

Heartworm – Should You Be Worried?

Posted by trurovetblog on June 21, 2013

Courtesy of:  Dr. Melissa Most of us visiting a veterinary clinic regularly are familiar with monthly parasite prevention for fleas, ticks and intestinal worms. These are bugs we often see on our pets, and it makes sense to prevent them!  There are parasites that are more difficult to see however…and one of those is heartworm. … Read More

Courtesy of: Kaitlyn – Veterinary Administrative Assistant Student Volunteer Volunteering at Truro Vet was a very good experience.  All the people I met were amazing and helpful, and all the animals I met I fell in love with.  I will never forget them.  I wish I could stay with their team forever but I need… Read More
