Wednesday, November 01 2017 Our 4th annual Kong drive for shelter pets has officially begun! When you purchase any size Kong toy for your pet at our hospital, we will donate another Kong toy to a shelter pet. With your support, we have been able to donate hundreds of Kong toys to Ventura County Animal Services' Kong Enrichment Program. This program is designed to enhance the daily lives of dogs in our county's Simi Valley and Camarillo shelters by allowing them to enjoy Kong toys stuffed with treats. Our annual Kong drive lasts from now until early December. Click here for more information about Ventura county's no-kill animal shelters.

Tuesday, August 22 2017 Cats are natural predators who instinctively hide signs of pain or vulnerability. This can make discomfort and underlying disease difficult or even impossible for cat owner's to detect. Despite their inability to show pain, cats do feel pain. They have nervous systems similar to humans and it is safe to assume that what is painful for us is painful for them.
