September is Happy Cat Month! Get your cat a FREE dose of Revolution with an exam – a $27 value!!!
To celebrate Happy Cat Month, during the month of September we are offering a FREE dose of REVOLUTION for all cats that are seen by one of our doctors for an examination! Statistically, cats are the most common household pet. However, they are much less likely to be seen reguraly by a veterinarian, as there are misconceptions that they do not need regular veterinary care like some other pets. This is not the case! In fact, cats are masters of deception, and often do not tell us there is a problem until it is too late. Routine exams are vital to making sure your cat stays healthy!As such, we are offering a FREE dose of Revolution for all cats seen for an exam during September – this is a $27 value at no charge to you! Revolution is a topical that is applied directly to the skin of your kitty once a month and serves to prevent heartworms (yes- cats get heartworms too!), and also protects your cat against fleas, ear mites, hookworms and roundworms – all things you definitely don’t want your cat to get!!

It’s vital to have your kitty seen by the vet at least once a year, so we are happy to help keep your kitty healthy!

EAH Highlighted Staff Member – Dhani!

Say hello to Dhani! Dhani returned to the  EAH Team in June of 2013, after working with us from 1998-2000. We are glad to have him as one of our Veterinarian Technician/Assistants! Dhani is a Rock Hill native and always seems to know everyone in town!

Dhani has two beautiful kids who keep him very, very busy! His daughter, Skye, is 14 and she just started high school at SouthPointe (her main concern with high school so far is how long the hallways are! :)) His son, Jadarian, is 4 and just started his 4k program. Dhani is also kept busy by his five dogs – Sage, Cindy, Bobo, Ranger, and Buck!

When he’s not working, playing with his dogs, or keeping up with his children, Dhani is a sports fanatic! He loves playing basketball and football, and cheering for Michigan State (basketball) and The University of South Carolina (football)! He also enjoys deep sea fishing and reading – mystery and suspense novels (his favorite author is James Patterson). 

Next time you are in the hospital, please make sure to say Hi to Dhani!
