October 20, 2010 Chestnut Rehabilitation & Adoption Center would like to announce participation in the Randalls / Tom Thumb Good Neighbor Program. We are asking that you please link our organization's account number to your Randalls Remarkable Card. You can do this by visiting the courtesy booth, at your local Randalls, and filling out a Good Neighbor Charity addition form. Our Randalls Good Neighbor organization number is 12474. 1% of our members' purchases will be donated to Chestnut Rehab, a non-profit charitable organization, whose purpose is to provide medical care for animals in need. We appreciate your support!
April 1, 2010 Dr. Nick DeWees will be rejoining our practice! He and his wife, Dr. Helen Hansen, will be returning to Texas in May and we are very excited that he has chosen to return to Chestnut to practice veterinary medicine.
January 28, 2010 February is National Pet Dental Health Month! An estimated 80% of dogs and cats 4 years of age and older show signs of oral disease, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. These pets are vulnerable to the pain, bad breath and tooth loss that can be associated with periodontal disease. Chronic infections can spread to the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys, where they can do more damage. A professional dental cleaning by a veterinarian removes plaque and tartar on the teeth and below the gum line. Ask your veterinarian today if your pet would benefit from a dental cleaning. During the month of February you will also receive a 20% discount on the anesthesia and dental cleaning.
September 15, 2009 We will be holding our first annual fall Dental Month this October. Periodontal disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats. An estimated 80% of dogs and cats 4 years of age and older show signs of oral disease, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. These pets are vulnerable to the pain, bad breath and tooth loss that can be associated with periodontal disease. Chronic infections can spread to the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys, where they can do more damage. Call to schedule a dental cleaning during October and receive a 20% discount on the anesthesia and cleaning.
October 24, 2008 It's finally happened! Now you can find out what your beloved pet is! The number one question we get asked when someone adopts a mixed breed dog is "What is it?" Well, now if you're interested we can find out for you. With a simple blood test that looks for DNA markers for about 140 different breeds, your pet will come back with a "pedigree" that reveals what the dominant breeds are in your dog's genetic makeup. Our clinic dog, Rita, whom we fondly declared to be a dachuhua terrier (that's dachshund, chihuahua, and terrier mix) was our first test subject. Her test results showed her to be a profound mix of many different breeds, but primarily she was toy fox terrier. (So where did she get that extra long back of hers?) We are so proud of her!
