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.

"Leroy" Oaks is a new patient to us. He's a 1-year-old mutt who likely has some herding dog in him due to his herding instincts. Last week he learned how to play dead when his owner pointed at him and said "Bang," but he got so good at it that for the next few days he played dead for every command: sit, stay, come. He likes all toys but no longer gets stuffed ones because he disembowels them.

"Wylie" is an 8-week-old Australian Shepherd Mix and new member of the Grigsby family. He came from a rescue and he's named after Wyatt Earp, not the cartoon coyote. Wylie loves to cuddle with his squeaky pheasant toy that's as big as he is. When he came home for the first time, he spotted Flap Jack, a beagle mix in the family, and ran right in and jumped on him like they were lifelong friends.
