A Dog, A Dermatologist, and a New Home!

Screen Shot 2018-06-26 at 1.51.23 PM.png

We recently had the pleasure of working with Paula Krenkel, President of Pet Rescue, on a very special pet's skin conditions- Lilliana. Paula took incredible care of Lilliana before ultimately finding her a new home where her new owner was aware and ready to treat her skin conditions. We are so excited for both pet and owner and know they will bring each other so much joy! 

"Pet Rescue's mission is to aid homeless, abandoned and neglected cats and dogs, to nurture them in the foster care of volunteers, to provide veterinary care and socialization, and to place them in permanent loving and responsible homes. Pet Rescue also works to decrease the population of homeless dogs and cats through its spay/neuter programs."

Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. Budgin Lecture at the West Milford Township Library


Dr.Rosenberg and Dr. Budgin had a great turnout Wednesday May 23rd at their lecture at the West Milford Township library!   Thank you to Greenwood Lake Animal Hospital for hosting and organizing this great event! Here are some notes and photos from the evening. 

Dr. Budgin and Dr. Rosenberg busted 8 top veterinary myths. Here is a quick summary:
1) Raw and grain free diets are NOT good for your pets.
2) Coconut oil does NOT heal pet dermatological issues.
3) You CANNOT blood test for food or other allergies.
4) Flea and tick preventatives MUST be used year-round.
5) Bathing IS good for your itchy pet once a week with the right shampoo.
6) Online pharmacies are UNRELIABLE sources for purchasing medication. Manufacturers do not sell directly to online pharmacies.
7) Licking paws IS a sign of allergies. (Pets lick their paws because they cannot scratch paws).
8) Steroids used short term are GOOD when appropriately administered by your Veterinarian.

The Fear Free initiative promotes considerate approach and gentle control techniques used in calming environments. Utilization of Fear Free methods and protocols leads to reduction of fear, stress and anxiety triggers creating an experience that is more comforting and rewarding for all involved including pets, their caretakers and veterinary health care teams.
