Meet Murphy! He’s a 10 week old mini Aussie that Dr Johnston diagnosed with a life threatening disease called PRAA. He cannot eat because he has a band of tissue around his esophagus preventing food from entering his stomach. To save his life he is going to have a very difficult, expensive, open chest surgery with a surgical specialist. Dr Johnston has graciously offered to take care of him and take on the financial burden of his $5,000 surgery. We will be keeping you posted on how he does in our stories! DM us (on Instagram) if you have any questions or want to know how you can help.
Kelsie is one of our newest members of the team, clocking in at just over one year at BVC. She has grown by leaps and bounds since her first day and continues to improve her skills every week. It’s never too hot in the BVC kitchen for Kelsie! When things get crazy busy in the hospital, she knows how to step it up and get things done! Thank you Kelsie for being a vital part of the BVC team!! #techweek#cvt#animallover#evenfish#thankacvt#vettech#bendveterinaryclinic
A couple of days ago was the start of vet tech week. Today we start our CVT highlights by honoring Kristy our most seasoned vet tech on staff. There are too many things we love about Kristy to mention here but a few examples include her strong work ethic, dedication to patient care and comfort, and efficiency, especially on Dr Maas surgery days. Thank you Kristy for being a VITAL part of the team at BVC!! ❤️❤️❤️

This picture may just seem like just another cute puppy picture; however, it’s so much more to us. Not too long ago we lost her human parents’ first baby to osteosarcoma after a long and hard fought battle. It was a loss that hit us hard. We too become attached to not only our patients, but also our clients, and we strive to fight with them to heal their best friends. Some battles we can’t win. But when Brook showed up today, it was a reminder that our broken hearts can heal and can love again. Every animal we own grows our hearts so much that even though they take a little piece of it with them when they go, our hearts are left larger and more able to love than before we had met. Ms Brooke, you have some big shoes to fill but I bet you’re gonna do just fine. ❤️
