Partridge Animal Hospital is treating the 9 Chihuahuas that were found abandoned in a locked crate in St. Petersburg.

The dogs had been stuffed in a 2-foot by 3- foot crate and left in the alley near 1020 15th Street N. A woman found the crate and contacted police, who brought the dogs to Pawlicious Poochie Pet Rescue.

After initial examinations, vets reported that the dogs were covered in feces and fleas, suffering from bad skin conditions. One dog doesn’t have an eye, and some of the female dogs might be pregnant. The Saint Petersburg Police Department is investigating the case as animal cruelty.

Jaime McKnight, the founder of Pawlicious Poochie Pet Rescue, is raising money to help these dogs.  The cost of treating each one could be around $1,000.

Partridge Animal Hospital is proud to treat these dogs and help them have a safer future.

Are you and your pets prepared?

During the months of May and June Microchipping will be $32.  Thats a $10 savings!

*All appointments can be scheduled with a technician*

Things to do before hurricane season arrives:

  1.  Make sure ALL pets in your household are microchipped.  If there is ever an evacuation and you get separated from your four legged kids, we want to make sure they get home!
    FACT:

    • 1 in 3 family pets will get lost at some point in their lifetime.
    • Without ID/Microchip, 90% of lost pets will never return home
    • A Microchip is a permanent ID for your pet that will remain with him or her for life.
  2.  Obtain current vaccine records on all your pets.
  3. Call local evacuation shelters and hotels to see which ones accept pets and make sure you know your evacuation route!
    Here is a link to the offical Hurricane Guide in St. Petersburg for pet care: http://www.stpete.org/emergency/hurricane_center/pet_care.php
  4. Make sure you have a way to transport all your pets safely.  All pets should have either a kennel, carrier, collar, leash and or harness.

Stolen Puppy at Partridge Animal Hospital

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Yes, the puppy that was stolen from All About Puppies is here. She was purchased by a family who had no idea that she was stollen. They brought her in because she was very sick. She has an upper respiratory infection and intestinal parasites. The intestinal parasites have caused intestinal bleeding and anemia. She is currently on IV fluids and is being treated with antibiotics, anti-parasitics and other medications. She is still coughing, but her chest already sounds much better and is much perkier today!

St. Petersburg P. D. “Feline Unit”

S.P.P.D “Feline Unit”

The spring and summer months tend to be what the veterinary world refers to as “kitten season.” Keeping the feline population under control is extremely difficult with the large number of animals that go by without being spayed or neutered. As a result, many unwanted litters flood shelters and rescue organizations. Sadly, not every kitten finds its happy ending.

Here at PAH we have a great relationship with the Saint Petersburg Police Department. We are so proud of our city’s police officers and the amazing job that they do. Every day they risk their lives to protect our community and our families. They work long hours under heavy amounts of stress. Very rarely do they get to end their shift with a huge grin on their faces, let alone with a bundle of kittens in their arms! However, on May 1st, 2014 Officer Brett McKean did just that. Read More
