I received my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Oklahoma State University in 2013 (the other OSU). I’ve been working at a mixed animal practice in Moab, Utah for nearly 2 years and look forward to leaving the desert for a place where it actually rains! I love mixed animal veterinary medicine because it allows me to work on all species rather than being confined to just large or small animals. In my free time I enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, horseback riding…basically anything that involved the outdoors. Together my boyfriend and I have a yellow lab, boxer and a schipperke mix along with a very doglike cat. I’m very excited to move to Oregon and look forward to working with you and your pets. Dr. Holly Chelsea VanderKley, Prac. Mgr.

Whether companion, comedian, confidant or protector, our pets are always there for us and don't ask much in return. National Pet Week® celebrates this bond and encourages pet owners to be certain they provide their best friend with all they need for a happy, healthy life every week of the year. Stop by and say Hi.

The participants have cared for their lambs by feeding, doctoring, exercising and grooming. All the hard work and records done by the young members are evaluated by judges. Don’t miss out on all the activity….there is a cooking and wool contest as well as the BBQ and then the auction where the students reap the rewards of their hard work. See you there!

Page 4 2nd Quarter 2015 Do Not Give Human Medication To Your Pets! You’ve read articles, gotten advice from a friend, or accessed the worldwide web to get information on what types of human medications are ok to give to your pets. But is this information reliable? And have you considered the risk you might be taking with the life of your furry companion? There are important differences between animals and humans. Sometimes the metabolic enzymes in the body that activate or break down drugs can differ between animals and humans and in some cases alter the actual absorption of the drug which can increase the toxicity of the drug and may even be fatal. Always contact your veterinarian for proper dosing information before giving any medication to your pet. Your veterinarian knows your pet, is familiar with your pet’s history, and also knows which medications they are currently taking that might interact with other medications. Marijuana, Is It OK For Pets? ...NO Marijuana intoxication may occur in pets that have access to marijuana plants, dried portions of the plants, or foodstuffs containing marijuana. Intoxication with marijuana appears clinically similar to other, more serious forms of poisoning. Symptoms o Anxiety, panting, and agitation commonly occur following exposure to marijuana. o In some pets, marijuana toxicity results in profound lethargy that can border on unconsciousness. o Pets suffering from marijuana intoxication often show impaired balance. They may stagger, stumble, and fall when attempting to walk. o Drooling, vomiting, and diarrhea may occur. o After exposure to marijuana, pets may lose bowel and bladder control. This results in house soiling (cats, dogs). o Extreme responses to noises, movements, and other forms of sensory stimulation may occur in pets that are exposed to marijuana. These responses can manifest as trembling or jerking of the head or extremities. In severe cases, the responses may appear similar to seizures.
