Long time no see!  This last month has been a whirlwind.  Our Training & Wellness Center is complete, the Open House is next Saturday (10 – 2 – please join us!), we’re busy with new fencing, signage, phone lines, furniture, and my iPhone has officially turned into a Pachinko machine.  Bing-ba-bing-bing-bing!

We have visited some wonderful local vets this month, letting them know all about what we’re up to, and how we can all work together to improve pet care in our community.  First we met with Dr. Carolyn Love of Love Pet Hospital, who gave us lots of great info on how to find local acupuncture vets and chiropractors (and vets) who are trained in animal chiropractic care.  We also enjoyed meeting her Office Manager, Robin, who had some great stories to share.

Next was a great heart to heart with our own vet, Dr. Todd Riggan of White Rock Veterinary Hospital.  Dr. Todd was excited about all the training classes we’re teaching, and gave us the name of the chiropractor who treats his pet patients.  We are looking forward to learning more about him hopefully getting him out to treat pups at DogBoy’s as well.  We love White Rock Vet!

Soon after we were knocking on the door of Dr. Neans and his super friendly crew at Central Texas Animal Hospital.  It was great hearing stories of how much Dr. Neans has seen Pflugerville grow over the years, and brainstorming about how we can work together to help the community continue to understand the importance of spaying & neutering their pets.  Thanks to Dr. Sameer Modak & their Office Manager Michelle for meeting with us as well.

Dr. Gudipally over at Pflugerville Animal Hospital introduced us to his super friendly long haired chihuahua named Levi, and a sweet kitty who’s name escapes me.  His business is growing, and he’s now treating pets in two locations.  Way to go!

Today, with DogBoy out of town, I visited our last two (but no less important) vets.  Dr. Watson at Tech Ridge Pet Hospital has such a kind heart, and his staff was so welcoming to me.  They even let me sit behind the front desk like one of their own.  Dr. Watson was interested to learn more about diet and its affect on behavior, and we look forward to talking more about that!  See our Diet Sheet if you’re curious to know more.

Finally, I got the sheer pleasure to meet Dr. Sutton at Hometown Animal Care.  We laughed about the ups and downs of the boarding industry and he told me all about the up and coming Round Rock location of the Central Texas Veterinary Specialty Hospital.  This second location (original is off Ben White, near Hwy 290 & 71) will be a specialty hospital by day and a top notch ER by night.  We can’t wait for them to open!  A big thanks to Cindy for giving me the grand tour.

We are so grateful to all our local vets, and can’t wait to work more closely with them in the coming year.  What they all had in common was how open they were to our desire to bring alternative medicine to this area, and their sharing of the wonderful reputation we have built in this 15 years of business.  Did I mention that?  This is our 15th year!!!  Woo Hoo!  Get ready for a year of fun and lots of  new adventures!  Hope to see you at the Open House!
