Wellness Wednesdays

Welcome (once again, and again and again) to our Wellness Wednesdays, a weekly296985_134195980014073_1887529537_n introduction to local Veterinary Clinics in this beautiful province of BC.

Today is pretty local to us, Bakerview Pet Hospital, who would like to share a little about Aiko. (“little loved one”-in Japanese) Aiko is a long-time resident at Bakerview Pet Hospital, and some of you may know her as Bakerview’s mascot. Aiko was brought to us in 2002 after being attacked by a dog, and the incident left her with a broken back. Ever since that accident, she has been paralyzed from the waist down. As you may have noticed, that does not hinder her from getting around! We have even gotten a cart for her, but she does not like to use it…she gets around great on her own! Aiko has her own little hideaway in the hospital that she shares with Squeak, however she enjoys venturing into reception for a visit with clients, and loves getting a few treats as well! On a sunny day you may find her catching some rays through the windows and door! More facts about her: She is a domestic short hair brown tabby, staff manually express her bladder twice a day and evacuate her colon 3 times a week.
