We are happy to report that Ali has checked out ok and is now back at HRS recovering. Great job on rescuing her. ... See MoreSee Less

Meet Ali, a true fighter: "We received an intake request last night from a lady who found an injured domestic rabbit in her yard. A volunteer picked the bun up this morning and took her straight to Windward Animal Hospital to have her rear leg x-rayed. Ali was dragging it when she hopped. The good news is that it's just a pulled muscle/strain. She must have been out for quite some time as she had ticks, fleas, mites, she was dehydrated, has an infected wound on her nose in addition to nasal discharge, and a wolf worm imbedded in her neck. Her teeth are yellow and it looks like she has been using her incisors to forage. She is one of the sweetest buns that I have ever met. After I removed all of the 'hitch-hikers' from her, she LITERALLY kissed me. She periscoped up and put her mouth on mine. Like a little peck. ;)" --Jennifer, our Shelter Manager

We wanted to share a really cool article about one of our long term client's furry family member, Kyra. Kyra is retiring from the Department so she will be coming to our clinic for all of her future care & medical needs. Great Job Kyra! ... See MoreSee Less

K9 Kyra has retired after four years of loyal service for the City of Johns Creek. She has located illegal drugs by utilizing her nose under varying situations from traffic stops to search warrants. These have led to the seizure of cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine. The drugs were removed from the streets of Johns Creek because of Kyra's extensive training and Officer Roberts commitment to the citizens of JC. One of the most notable accomplishments by K9 Kyra was her assistance in taking a bank robber into custody. When the suspect ran towards Autrey Mill Middle School K9 Kyra was able to corner the suspect making him surrender without incident. K9 Kyra has been instrumental in building and maintaining relationships with the people we serve and she has performed countless public demonstrations. K9 Kyra unlike a lot of police dogs has been very tolerant which has allowed the citizens the opportunity to get up close and personal with her. One of the most memorable moments for Officer Roberts and K9 Kyra came from the hard work and dedication of a local child named Caden. Caden raised several thousand dollars to purchase Kyra a protective vest. Kyra touched a lot of peoples lives and will be missed running the halls of the police department.!!

Meet one of the girls brought in from Georgia House Rabbit Society for pre-adoption care. This rabbit needed her teeth trimmed.

When sick rabbits come into our clinic, the first thing we do is evaluate their teeth because many health issues are secondary to common dental problems. The single most common dental issue in rabbits are the "cheek (premolars and molars) teeth" followed by the incisors being allowed to grow too long as a secondary problem.

However, it is imperative to understand that trimming the incisors without addressing the cheek teeth often results in serious problems for rabbits.

Incisor and cheek tooth malocclusion are common in domestic pet rabbits. Malocclusions may cause coronal and root (reserve crown) elongation, reserve crown disease, enamel spurs, spikes or ramps. Oral trauma and periodontal disease can also occur secondary to malocclusion. The cheek teeth as well as the incisors must be evaluated and addressed in each case.

Rabbits have continuously growing (erupting) teeth. Dental growth can be influenced by age, health, gender (pregnancy) and nutrition. The balance between tooth eruption and tooth attrition (ware) from normal occlusion is thought to be heavily influenced by correct nutrition.

This creates unique problems for rabbits. Any rabbit that is not eating, is eating less than normal or is eating the wrong feeds, will develop over-grown teeth.
