Disco was referred to GVS for surgery for a brain tumor -- a procedure his owner was naturally nervous about. Fortunately for Disco, his "mom" put her trust in Dr.Jennifer Parkes, DVM,DACVIM (neurology) who performed the neurosurgery. Disco recently celebrated his 2-year "post op" anniversary by posing for his portrait.
Baxley was diagnosed with Stage 3 B-cell Lymphoma. Given no treatment he would have only an estimated 6 to 8 weeks to live. However, his owner opted for chemotherapy. Here's what she had to say..."I am so elated to announce my baby Baxley is still here (2 years later) and all his blood work looks completely normal! It would seem he is one of the 25% that is still in remission. Thank you Dr. Hamilton and staff for giving Baxley another chance at a long, happy and healthy puppy life."
To see Gato here, wandering under the watchful eyes of his owners Tammy Welch and Debbie Ellis, you would never know the months of tedious recovery that he endured after an unfortunate attack outside. He nearly lost his leg, but his owners and his medical team at BluePearl Georgia Veterinary Specialists worked tirelessly through several surgeries and weeks of follow up care. Oh, he still wants to go outside and enjoy nature, but now he’s either on a leash or within arm’s length of adult supervision!
Little 2-pound Peanut was abandoned in front of an auto parts store. With two broken legs, the four-month-old chihuahua/miniature pinscher puppy was terrified and in pain. Lucky for Peanut, a kind soul rescued him. Lifeline Animal Project, an Avondale Estates animal rescue and welfare organization stepped in, raising money for Peanut’s vital medical care, which included orthopedic surgery at GVS. Surgeon Alan Cross, DVM, ACVS, expects Peanut to make a full recovery.
