October Is Pet Diabetes Month  

Diabetes mellitus, also known as sugar diabetes, is a growing problem in the United States' human population. What many people don't realize is that diabetes is also a problem for dogs and cats. Animal Hospital of North Asheville has many diabetic patients, so we want to use October to raise awareness of the problem.

The most common signs of diabetes in pets are excessive thirst and increased urination. Many patients are hungrier than usual, and most lose weight despite having a good appetite.

When you hear the word "mites" you may shudder or think of little bugs crawling all over. Either way most people find them creepy. But the truth is that we often see mites on animals but good news- there is treatment! If your pet is itchy, losing hair, head shaking or digging at their ears be sure to make an appointment with your veterinarian.

Let's take a look at a couple different types of common mites that can affect your pet.

     Let Your Dog Sniff    
By Dr. Kasandra Garner

Many of us who love our dogs often wonder what they are thinking. Perhaps we would gain more insight into their minds if we wondered, "What are they smelling?"

Alexandra Horowitz, in her new book "Being a Dog," says that all dogs have the ability to create "a picture of the world through smell." This is partly because of the design of their snouts. Each nostril is controlled separately, allowing the dog not only to detect a particular smell, but also to locate it in space.

Keep Your Pet Safe During Halloween  

It's Halloween time again, and while you're celebrating this fun holiday, remember these tips to keep your pets safe:

Keep your pets indoors. Plan ahead and get cats inside early in the day, or even the day before, since it might be hard to find them later. During "Trick or Treating" hours, keep pets in a secure and quiet area of the house, not where the front door opens. Please remember that pets don't understand Halloween and can really suffer when they are scared, so protect them from the sights and sounds.
