Meet Our Newest Patients!

The purpose of this page is to show off our newest patients. These are mostly cute puppies and kittens, with the occasional rabbit, small mammal, lizard, or turtle. Check back regularly to see who's new!  If your pet isn't on this page, we apologize--we occasionally have to remove some pictures that have been up for a while to make room for new ones.

If we took your pet's picture and you don't see it here but would like it here, just call the office (or email us at VHAH@Comcast.net) and let us know. We'll do our best to oblige.

"Lucy" is a 9-week-old mini Australian Shepherd and new member of the Echales family. After recently experiencing her first snowfall, she fell in love. Lucy loves the snow so much that she goes from being a sweet girl to a "Tasmanian devil". Mr. Echales digs tunnels in the snow for her and she will rip through them at top speed and then dive headfirst in to the ice-cold snow! So far Lucy has learned how to climb up the stairs, but hasn't quite mastered going down them just yet. In due time!
