Pet of the Month
February - Duke
This beautiful boy is Duke, and he has a pretty cool story! Duke was brought into Carolina Beach Animal Hospital as a new patient in January. His owners decided to sign him up for our Gold Wellness Plan, which includes all of his recommended vaccinations, comprehensive bloodwork, and wellness radiographs (x-rays). When we performed the radiographs, Dr. Scarzella found a very large mass in Duke's spleen, larger than a grapefruit! If this mass had remained undetected and untreated, it would have eventually ruptured and Duke may not have survived. Since the mass was detected before that happened, Dr. Scarzella was able to remove Duke's spleen and save his life! The mass was sent to the lab for testing to due to the concern that it could be cancer, but it turns out it was benign!! This is truly a happy ending and a great example of why preventative medicine is so important! We are so grateful that Duke and his family allowed us to take such good care of him resulting in the best possible outcome!
January - Sinatra aka Frank
Sinatra became a part of our lives at College Road Animal Hospital in January of 2018. He instantly melted all our hearts with his beautiful blue eyes, and sweet serenades. While we'll never quite understand why anyone would leave him behind, we feel incredibly thankful that his path crossed ours. Sinatra quickly settled into his new surroundings, with the hopes of finding the purrfect furrever family to replace the memories of those many cold nights alone.
