Animal Hospital at Brier Creek Mascots



Typhoon was born with a litter of kittens outside.  Dr. Goetz adopted him from a previous clinic she worked at.  He was only 6 weeks old and just a ball of fluff.  He was a playful kitten.  As he grew up, he would hide at Dr. Goetz’s home and only come out for meals.  Pet sitters could stay at the home for a week and never see him.  He became very scared and shy.  Surprisingly, Typhoon loves Animal Hospital at Brier Creek.  Here he is playful and full of life.  Mr. Personality loves to greet pet parents, and dogs and cats.  He plays with rubber bands and tries to chew house plants.  He is now 17 years young.  He has arthritis which is much improved on his Gabapentin pain medication compounded in tuna fish oil.  He went from lying around and not jumping to being frisky again once he was on his pain medication.  He is living the good life at AHBC. 



Rosie came to Animal Hospital at Brier Creek through Hart 2 Heart Rescue.  She was found with another dog abandoned at an apartment complex. When Rosie came to Dr. Goetz she could not breathe.  Her nasal openings were so small (called stenotic nares) that she could not get air.  In addition, the tissue on the roof of her mouth was so long it covered the opening to her windpipe so she could not get air (called elongated soft palate).  Dr. Goetz performed surgery on her to help her breathe and spayed Rosie as soon as possible after she came to AHBC.  Rosie had a rough two week recovery before she was able to breathe with ease.  When Rosie came to AHBC she was not able to run or play.  Now she can run and play.  She has become our professional greeter at AHBC and is Dr. Goetz’s fur baby.  Rosie also loves to run around and play with squeaky toys and home and play with her Pekinese sister, Daisy.
