“My favorite part of being a veterinarian is seeing how much the bond between us and our pets helps us in every aspect of our lives. People from completely different worlds can always find common ground in their love for animals. I cannot fathom that I would be able to bond with someone that does not like animals. I have never had to face that issue – and hope I never have to.”
Dr. Amy Mathews is a veterinarian and the medical director of our Buckhead hospital. She is pictured here with her dog Petunia, a rescue from Hurricane Katrina. Not only is Dr. Mathews an awesome vet, she is the nicest person, greatest friend – and we are thankful every single day that she is a part of TVV. Dr. Mathews’ clients – the most loyal you will ever meet – would follow her to the ends of the earth. But, thank goodness, that is not necessary because she is firmly planted in, and steadfastly committed to, the Buckhead community and their pets - and has been for the past 26 years.
A lot of us really like rainy days but string about 5-8 of those together and we can have a conglomerate of issues to deal with, and not just our human issues of depression caused by sunlight deprivation, mud tracked floors, or frizzy hair – but for our dogs, it can put a real damper (pun intended) on their favorite pastime. Puddles - those little rainwater gathering pools that draw in our unsuspecting water-lapping, paw-splashing canine companions. Those dreadful for us but enticing for dogs water sources have the potential to be more like cesspools, containing bacteria and parasitic organisms. Like people, not all puddles are bad :) but it is very important to know the potential health hazards puddles can pose to dogs… like, Giardia and Leptospirosis.
