This is our hero Bailey who saved his mom’s life when he barked constantly which was out of character for him while riding in the car. This caused mom to slow down paying attention to him. Suddenly, a large tree came falling down across the road! Mom was able to stop and all where safe, including the car behind them!

Mia, the first kitty at Jermantown Animal Hospital to benefit from Feliway and its calming effects. Feliway is a pheromone that cats release from their cheeks. When cats are happy and calm they rub this pheromone from glands on their cheeks, onto objects and people. It has a calming effect on kitties, making them happy and less stressed at their vet visit. All kitties at Jermantown Animal Hospital will get a towel infused with this pheromone!

For those following Zane’s (Anne and Jerry’s grandson) progress, he was able to get outside the other day for a wagon ride at the hospital. He was discharged today and is back home with dad and mom in Richmond. His follow up check is next week. They stopped by on their way home so we could see him. Our visit was short but boy were we glad to see him!!

For those of you who have been following our grandson Zane’s medical progress I thought I’d update on here. On Monday October 25, 2021 he went to Children’s Hospital in DC and had his MRI and heart cath. Everything went well and he will have his pre-op tests on Monday November 1. Then he will be admitted early Tuesday morning for his Fontan surgery, which we hope that this will be the last open heart surgery he will have to go through!! This one will be tougher on him then his first 2 the Glen and Norwood procedures as he was much younger for those. If you would like to send him a get well soon card ( he loves getting cards and “reading” them) you can always send them here to the animal hospital c/o Anne Ricketts and I’ll be sure to get them to him!! Thank you so much to everyone that checks on him whenever you are here or call it means a lot to me!!

It’s with a heavy heart that I’m posting this letter of Dr. Metzger’s retirement. After working along side him for 27 years I’m going to miss him dearly! He has plenty of plans for what he will be doing with his time. Doc and Mrs. Doc will be enjoying lots of family time. Spending time with their granddaughter and their new grandchild that is due to join the family in January will take up a lot of his time. I’m sad for our chapter of working together is coming to an end. On the other hand I’m extremely excited for my new chapter with Dr. Elizabeth Johnson to begin! Doc carefully choose the new doctor to takeover the legacy of his practice. He couldn’t have chosen anyone better then Dr. Johnson!! She will be starting on November 1st!!
