|Happy New Year! What’s going on at EAH?
Happy New Year! We hope 2015 brings health and happiness to each and every one of you!
Here’s what you need to know! 🙂
|Burr- It’s cold out there! Keep your pets safe!
|With the new year comes cold weather! Keeping your pets safe is on the top of your mind, we are sure, and it’s always on top of ours! Here are some great tips from the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
Winter wellness: Has your pet had his/her preventive care exam (wellness exam) yet? Cold weather may worsen some medical conditions such as arthritis. Your pet should be examined by a veterinarian at least once a year, and it’s as good a time as any to get him/her checked out to make sure (s)he is ready and as healthy as possible for cold weather.
Know the limits: Just like people, pets’ cold tolerance can vary from pet to pet based on their coat, body fat stores, activity level, and health. Be aware of your pet’s tolerance for cold weather, and adjust accordingly. You will probably need to shorten your dog’s walks in very cold weather to protect you both from weather-associated health risks. Arthritic and elderly pets may have more difficulty walking on snow and ice and may be more prone to slipping and falling. Long-haired or thick-coated dogs tend to be more cold-tolerant, but are still at risk in cold weather. Short-haired pets feel the cold faster because they have less protection, and short-legged pets may become cold faster because their bellies and bodies are more likely to come into contact with snow-covered ground. Pets with diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, or hormonal imbalances (such as Cushing’s disease) may have a harder time regulating their body temperature, and may be more susceptible to problems from temperature extremes. The same goes for very young and very old pets. If you need help determining your pet’s temperature limits, consult your veterinarian.

|EAH Highlighted Staff Member – Ben!
|We are certain most of you know and LOVE Ben, and are excited to highlight him as a member of the EAH team!
Ben joined Ebenezer AH initially from 1996-2000, then returned in 2005. He is a native of New Wilmington, Pennsylvania but has called Rock Hill home for the last 28 years. Ben is best known for his amazing curly hair and beard (when he sports one!) and his never-ending kindness towards our clients and patients.
Ben lives with his girlfriend, Tiffany (also an EAH teammember!) and his furry family members – dogs, Folly and Vick, and cats Loretta, Jude, and Murray (who reportedly loves to eat!).
In his spare time, Ben enjoys running, biking, cooking, spending time with Tiffany and her kids, being outdoors, going to Winthrop basketball games (both womens and mens!), and watching Carolina (Gamecock and Panther) football.
Next time you are in the hospital, please take a moment to say hi to Ben! We are so thankful for him!
