A familiar face around Greenwood Lake Animal Hospital growing up, Ryan Louer completed his Harvard residency in anesthesiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital with distinction!
Though Ryan worked for many years shoulder to shoulder with his father as a veterinary technician, he will treat all people, great and small, as a human doctor.
Dr. Ryan Louer, his wife Ann Elise, their daughter Annie and French Bulldog Charlie will soon relocate from Boston, Massachusetts, and settle into their next phase of life in North Carolina.
Congratulations Ryan, on a job well done!
Fireworks, barbecues and other Fourth of July traditions can be great fun for people, but all the festivities can be frightening for pets.
The noise of celebrations and fireworks can startle animals and cause them to run, while holiday foods can cause vomiting, diarrhea and/or GI obstructions. The summer heat and travel can also be dangerous and debris from parties can end up lying where pets can eat or play with it.
Follow these safety tips for a pet-safe Independence Day:
If you're looking to escape from the heat of the summer into the cool of the woods, remember that you and your dog aren't the only ones out and about; the ticks are just waiting for their next meal to walk by.
Don't forget to check your pet thoroughly for ticks after coming in from a hike, especially in between their paw pads, and remember to pick up (and give!) their flea and tick preventatives this summer!
While spending time outdoors, be sure to provide your pet with plenty of cool water and shade to prevent overheating, and bring them inside to air-conditioned rooms if they seem to be struggling in the heat.
This summer, keep cool and stay flea- and tick-free while enjoying the great outdoors!
P.S. Ask us about the rebates we offer on parasite preventatives purchased at GWLAH! Also important to note is that products purchased through the hospital come with a manufacturer's guarantee!
Happy birthday America!
As we celebrate our nation's 247th birthday, let us remember the great personal sacrifice that her founders endured.
In a letter to his wife, Abigail, John Adams charged future Americans with the responsibility of preserving the freedom that his generation had paid for with "our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."
“Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.”
Happy Independence Day!
