Medical Topics

Novel Approach to the Treatment of Lower Urinary Disease in Cats: the use of Low Dose Substance P (sP) - Lower urinary tract disease (LUTD) in cats accounts for 1.5 - 2.5% of all visits to veterinary clinics in North America, costing the cat owners $24,000,000 each year. LUTD in the cat is a frustrating, often misdiagnosed entity.

Laryngeal Paralysis video

Laryngeal Paralysis - a common disease of the aging large breed dog (Labrador Retrievers, Great Danes, etc) that starts, initially, as only a change in your pet's voice character. As the disease progresses, there can be significant interference with your pet's ability to take in sufficient air into their lungs. Breathing becomes much more "noisy" and, in some instances, is quite loud.

Otic Polyps video

Otic (ear) Polyps - Polyps in the ear canals of dogs and cats can originate from a variety of sources and tissues. These polyps can grow quite large causing obstruction and trapping of the normal waxy secretions of the ear canals. Obstruction or interference with normal wax migration generally leads to secondary infections, both bacterial and yeast.

Lisa Goltz Retiring

After nearly twenty years at Flowertown Animal Hospital, Lisa Goltz is retiring. Lisa has been here since the first day of Flowertown, initially with the founder, Dr. Todd Heldreth, and most recently, with Dr. Dorsam.

We wish her well in retirement knowing that her three horses will keep her busy. Lisa’s mom recently sold her house in Florida and is moving up to the Cottageville “ranch.” We know that Lisa will feel much more at peace having her mother close by.
