My dad told me not to eat weird things around the house...
As I got older I wondered " why ?" I never listened and never had a problem before. Then I ate a sock and had the worst stomach pain, had to go to North River Animal Hospital and woke up with one less sock in my stomach. I Feel much better now!
Squeaks was named by my son Jake. He chose her name because when we picked her out at the pet store she was very noisy. She has been with our family for 2 years. She gets her teeth trimmed every few months or they get too long and I have to chop up her food into tiny pieces. Her favorite foods are green peppers and celery. We love that North River Animal Hospital is able to give her great care.

August Pet of the Month
Rudy likes snuggling with his people, riding in the car, and kissing his cat, Newt (which she hates). He is not a fan of strangers, going out in the rain, and June bugs who hide in the grass and touch his feet. Rudy used to hate going to the vet. With patient and gentle care, Saturday visits, and tons of cookies, Rudy is now a model patient. He loves to go see his friends at North River Animal Hospital. And sometimes if he is good, he gets to try to kiss Angel the clinic cat (which she hates). Rudy has decided for the next month, he would prefer to be called Mr. August. Way to live large Rudy!
