|Ideas to exercise your pet! Check out this video – Exercising Your Pet|
|Developing an exercise program for your dog and cat is important to their overall well being. Regular exercise builds strength and endurance while maintaining a healthy body weight. Additional benefits of exercise include fewer behavior and medical problems associated with inactivity.|

EAH Staff to participate in the Committee for Responsible Pet Ownership fence build!
The Committee for Responsible Pet Ownership is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on how to care for and better understand animals. One of their many missions is to “Unchain York County” – organizing fence builds for dogs currently living on chains and for their families who can not afford to install fences themselves. Unchaining dogs greatly improves their safety and quality of life.
Some of the EbenezerAnimal Hospital staff will be helping with one such fence build in April. We are excited about this volunteer opportunity, and will be helping to unchain three dogs from a Rock Hill family.

Help us raise much needed supplies for the Humane Society of York County!
May 3rd – 9th is National “Be Kind to Animals” Week. To celebrate this, (something that should be done year round!) we are collecting donations for the York County Humane Society throughout the month of May.
A full list of supplies needed can be foundhere, and range from litter pans and blankets to toys and bowls. YCHS helped hundreds of animals find loving homes last year – the least we can do is help them in that purpose!
|EAH Highlighted Staff Member – Dr. Jay Hreiz!|
|Dr. Hreiz is one of the co-owners of Ebenezer Animal Hospital and hasbeen a member of the EAH team since 2008! He attended Penn State University for his college education and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008.|
Ever wonder why Dr. Hreiz has VMD after his name instead of the more “typical” DVM? VMD stands for “Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris.” This is the exact same degree as DVM, or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, except the degree is in Latin instead of English. If you ever see a veterinarian with VMD after his or her name, you can be sure that the individual is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine!
In his spare time Dr. Hreiz is an avid runner and has completed a handful of half marathons and five full marathons (so far!). He is full of wanderlust and has traveled to many locations including Thailand, France, Portugal, England, Germany, Austria, Iceland, Mexico, Costa Rica, and many of the US National Parks. He also loves spending time with his rescued greyhound, Ella, and his kitty Dax!
Next time you are at EAH, make sure to say hi to Dr. Hreiz!
