Coyote Sightings on the Rise
The rise of coyote sightings and encounters is becoming a concern for pet owners throughout Ohio. Our Dr. Gretchen Zarle recently spoke with Fox 8 Cleveland, investigative reporter, Suzanne Stratford, about coyotes, other wildlife, and the risks they may pose to your pets.
Did You See Dr. Zarle on Fox 8?
Dr. Zarle was recently featured on Fox 8 to talk about the importance of end of life care for pets. As it becomes more affordable and accessible in the area, it’s a great option for people who want to make the last day of their pet’s lives happy and comfortable. View the clip of Dr. Zarle’s Fox 8 interview here.
Dr. Zarle was also featured in another Fox 8 clip about fear-free veterinary visits. Check that out here!
Rescued Cairn Terrier Becomes Local Therapy Dog
Have you heard about Willet the Therapy Dog?
Willet was rescued in 2008 from a puppy mill in Georgia by the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network (CPCRN). He was adopted by long-time Bartels Pet Hospital client Belinda Adornetto, who flew all the way to New Mexico to bring him back East.
Today, Willet is a member of Therapy Dogs International, delivering smiles and joy to many people in senior living communities, rehab centers, and even dentist offices in the Brecksville area.
And, if it weren't for our very own Dr. Gretchen Zarle, he may never have stepped paw in Ohio. Dr. Zarle recommended the CPCRN website to search for the perfect pet for their family – "a calm adult dog that could be taken anywhere." Willet was the perfect fit for the Adornetto's!
Bartels Pet Hospital works with CPCRN and Valley Save-a-Pet to give rescued animals low cost spays, neuters, vaccines and more. We are proud to support such great organizations and help these special animals find their forever homes.
