Posted by wp_trurovetwe on September 11, 2017

Autumn, a 12 year old dog came to see us because she seemed to have problems with her hind end.

Posted by wp_trurovetwe on April 24, 2017

Meet Edith Anne and her very noble and tolerant big brother, Bishop. Edith Anne is  9 1/2 years old and has always played the pleasant but somewhat annoying loving little sister to Bishop (11 1/2 years).

Written By: Ashley Weatherbee, Vet Assistant In 2012 my partner and I added to our family. We drove to Springfield, Massachusetts and picked up our new 9 week old Bullmastiff puppy.  She was perfect and we fell in love immediately!  She has stolen the hearts of everyone she’s met, including all my co-workers here at… Read More

On April 10th, 2015 the staff of the Truro Vet Hospital had to say our goodbyes to our friend of almost 18 years.

Courtesy of: Joye On November 30, 2013 I headed off to Cancun, Mexico for the trip of a lifetime.  Over the next week, working with over 50 other volunteers organized by Cats and Dogs International, we spayed and neutered over 900 dogs and cats!  But I’m getting a bit ahead of myself… Cats and Dogs… 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

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

I Love Old Dogs!

Posted by trurovetblog on February 14, 2013

Courtesy of: Amanda I have 2 old dogs. They couldn’t be more opposite of each other, but I love them both the same. I love the grey around the muzzle, and the slowness of their gait. I love their patience. I love the fact that they think they can get away with the world. I… Read More
