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.

My daughter and I are extremely happy with Dr. Bischel and her loving caring staff.Susana Collins
I have three cats, my fur babies, and I am very satisfied with the treatment they receive from Dr. B. Last month, my cat Malcolm became very sick late at night, (diarrhea, lethargy, no eating/drinking) and I called Dr. B's office first thing the next morning. They fit us in within two hours. My cat was already severely dehydrated so Dr B. recommended iv fluids and antibiotics. I was supposed to come back to pick up Malcolm that afternoon but could not because my husband needed our sole car. I asked if Malcolm could stay the night. Dr. B said it was no prob and did not charge a boarding fee. When I picked him up the following day he was already perkier and was back to normal within a few days. Every year we go out of town for XMAS and board our cats here. They don't mind that I call almost everyday to see how my babies are doing. This past week our water heater leaked in our apartment and the contractors said they had to come into our unit for repairs. I had nowhere to put the cats to keep them safe so I called Dr B. at 630pm and the receptionist said I could board all three cats the next morning, when the construction work was to begin, and keep them there as long as needed. Having strange men in my apartment freaks me out. My sanity stayed intact because I did not have to worry about my cats eating the drywall scraps or escaping through the front door that the contractors continually forgot to close. I love this vet and her staff because they put the health and safety of my cats first and they are always there when I need them. They don't kiss my butt, and I don't want them to. That is what my husband is for. 🙂Hessy W.
