Dear Friends,
I hope that you have had a fantastic summer!  Judging by the numbers of dogs and cats that have been joining us for boarding and Puppy Play Group, many of you have had some time to get away and hopefully unwind.

In fact, our Puppy Play Group and boarding have been so busy, we have again added more staff to keep up with the demand and make sure that everyone is taken care of to the highest standards.

We'll be updating our website in the next few days, so you'll be able to see pictures of our new team members.

We have a few more updates for you, so be sure to read the short articles below!

With warm regards, Sabine Ellis


Immiticide Heartworm Treatment is now unavailable!
As some of you may have heard, there has been a shortage on Immiticide, the drug used to treat heartworms in dogs, for a while now.  There has been a production issue and eventually stock of Immiticide would be used up and the drug would become unavailable.
We have now been informed by Merial, the only maker of Immiticide, their stock has been completely depleted.  It is unclear when Immiticide will be available again, but it will likely take several months if not longer.

To be clear, there is no other approved treatment on the market that is as safe and effective as Immiticide.  We are being advised to treat Heartworm positive dogs on a case by case basis by supporting them and minimizing damage to their bodies while we wait until Immiticide becomes available again.

In light of this information, it is more important than ever to give heartworm prevention medication every single month!  If you have trouble remembering, go to  to sign up for a free email reminder.

2)Manufacturer's Guarantee

You can call and pre-pay on the phone and we will make your product available for after-hours pick up. We will even mail your preventatives to you at no extra charge with no minimum order amount.

4)Support your local economy

With your purchase at Crescent City Veterinary Hospital you support a local small business and the local economy.


You will save money. We work hard with our manufacturers to offer the highest quality products at very competitive prices. Below see a price comparison done on August 31, 2011.
