Fall Is Fungus Time!
In some regions of the country, fall is just as wet as spring. That means that more mushrooms dot backyards and forest floors. While most mushrooms are perfectly safe, there’s a small percentage that are highly toxic to our furry friends (and to us!). Check out http://www.vetstreet.com/our-pet-experts/5-common-mushrooms-that-can-poison-your-pet to see photos of mushrooms toxic to your pet and to stay informed about toxic mushrooms. If you think your pet has gobbled up a toxic mushroom, please call us right away or contact the ASCPA Animal Poison Control Center immediately!
Our Resolution is to always do our best to provide excellence in wellness, illness and surgical care for patients; to build close, positive relationships with clients, and to provide education and empowerment to clients and staff in a calm, comfortable, healing environment.

Dr. Susan Murphy and her staff of animal lovers are the best in this county. I have been taking my cats and dogs to her since I was blessed to find her 14 years ago. She is smart, honest , humble and has many years experience. Dr. Murphy even sheds a tear her self when she has to send one off to rainbow bridge.
