January 2015 Newsletter

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! 🙂
  • Hospital renovations to (hopefully) begin soon! We are still in the planning stages, but hope to add square footage onto our existing building.The new plans will offer additional office space, an upgraded facility, and indoor and outdoor playspace for doggy play-care! More details to come!
  • February is National Pet Dental Health Month! Details below on how having your pet’s dental cleaning done during the month of February will save you money! Also,  each dental in February will recieve a *free* Ora-Vet Sealant application to help protect your pet’s teeth going forward!
  • Our regular groomer, Sheila, will not be available from January 6th through (at least) January 26th. Good news is that our fabulous receptionist, Carla, has been grooming for years and will be able to take on some of Sheila’s grooming patients! Sheila is having shoulder surgery, and while we know all our wonderful clients will miss her, she needs time to recover and heal! Carla has been grooming for years and is happy to be trusted with your furry family members. Let us know if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment with either groomer!
  • Check out our new signage on the hospital and outside! We are still working with an electrician to get them lit, but the important thing is that they are up and sharing great info with you!
  • There have been several recent pet food and treat recalls in the market. In an effort to keep you up to date, we suggest you sign up for free email pet food recalls at http://www.petfoodrecall.org/notifications/ . This service will email you when a new recall is issued, keeping you as up to date as possible. We will, of course, always pass along information to you as we receive it.
  • Your pet has an online pet portal- did you know that? Sometimes you need access to your pet’s medical records when you least expect it. Never fear- accessing records online is simple, safe, and secure! Visit our website (www.ebenezervets.com) and click on the Patient Center tab, then down to My Pet’s Medical Records. As long as we have your email address in our system, you can register and log in! If we don’t have your email address, let us know so we can add it and you can get registered. Easy as that!
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!
