Lucy, was an adorable Min Pin that was suffering from horrible and chronic allergies. She had food allergies as well as severe pollen allergies.
She had been to different veterinarians that just kept treating her with antibiotics and steroids. Clearly she needed a different treatment. We concentrated on improving her overall health, clearing up her chronic ear infections and bad skin with topical ear medications and medicated mousse applications on her entire body.
We also started her on a very strict hydrolyzed diet with essential fatty acids – which are lacking in most dogs that suffer from allergies. We treated her daily with antibiotics, antihistamines and other topical and systemic (oral) treatments.
About 12 to 14 weeks later she actually looked like a Min Pin! What an amazing transformation! And Lucy is forever grateful for her new lease on life.
This little guy arrived in misery. He could not stop chewing and biting to the point that he was gnawing at his skin and causing open, raw, bleeding sores. He was diagnosed with Sarcoptic Mange. This mange causes excessive itching and severe, self-inflicted trauma. Dogs will not stop eating at their skin! This condition is almost always associated with secondary staph infection – which adds to the severity of the disease.
Little Henry was quickly started on systemic (oral) and topical treatments, which included anti-itch medications, antibiotics, daily medicated baths and oral supplements.
He was also full of intestinal parasites which further suppressed his immune system. A proper deworming schedule was started… and three months later, he was a happy, bouncy, healthy little guy with amazing skin and a beautiful coat!
We weren’t quite sure what breed Donna was when she was first brought in to us by a rescue. She had a terrible case of generalized dermatitis, that turned out to be a chronic demodectic mange with a secondary infection. The mites had completely destroyed her hair follicles and her skin was thickened, dry and full of yeast and bacteria.
Soon after the skin scrape that demonstrated numerous live and breeding mites, we initiated systemic treatment (internal medication) as well as topical creams and supplements. Eight weeks later, she was a new dog! She grew back a gorgeous coat and she was happy, playful and full of life.
The best part was that she was adopted to a forever home where she will be loved and cared for…for the rest of her life!
Donna truly got a new chance at a good life! We’re so happy we were able to help her thrive.

- Dental CareDespite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria leads to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened gums, and other common signs of dental disease.

I just love the friendly staff at Eastlake. Very caring. Dr. Bischel is the best.Vicky Wade
I have been very happy bringing my dog, Guido and my cat, Cleo to Dr. Bischel for the past few years. No matter how busy they are, they always have found a way to get me in. My first experience was several years ago when I just moved to the area. Guido tore his nail was limping and constantly licking his paw. I Googled nearby veterinarians and called a couple, but it must have been very crazy dog day as they had nothing available unless it was an emergency situation. Ah.. sadly, I really did not want to cover the extra charges. I then called Eastlake Village Veterinary Clinic. They were booked as well but gave me the "Drop Off Exam" option. I could drop off Guido and the vet would examine him as soon as possible. I was a little hesitant, but the person on staff was so assuring on the phone. I went in.Long story short, they took care of my Guido and removed the remaining piece of nail from his paw. I have been going back ever since.Gavin P.
