Kittens Looking for a New Loving Home: Meet Hiro and Hitch

Looking for a new furry, feline family member?
   Be sure to come by Animal Medical Hospital and check out our kittens available for adoption in the lobby.  AMH has formed a partnership with the Humane Society of Charlotte, and as a result, we are able to provide a loving, caring environment for adoptable kittens until they are able to go to their “furr-ever” home.

We have two available for adoption, Hiro and Hitch, who are from the same litter. They each have unique and loveable personalities. Hiro is easy going, and would be wonderful in a home with children. Hitch is an explorer and is equally as cute.

The number of kittens AMH has available varies dependent upon how many the Humane Society of Charlotte has available for adoption. We are constantly  receiving new kittens, so please be sure to check out our available adoptions by stopping by or giving us a call!

If you are interested in applying for adoption, come by the front desk and ask one of our Client Service Associates for an application. Once submitted, your application will be processed within 48 hours, and then you will be notified whether or not if you are approved for adoption. Interested applicants are encouraged to stop by for a visit with our kittens during our regular business hours that way we can ensure that one of our adorable felines is the “purr-fect” match for your family.

After you have been approved for adoption, we will assist you in setting up a time to pick up your new kitten. At this appointment, you will meet with one of our doctors who will go over kitten care with you, as well as answer any kitten questions you may have. Your kitten will be fully vaccinated (boosters may be needed for our younger kittens) and will be spayed or neutered. Before you take your furry family member home, we will also provide you with proof of vaccinations and two gift cards redeemable at Animal Medical Hospital. One gift card will cover the cost of your pet’s first physical exam at AMH, and one is worth $200 worth of services. We hope that these gift cards will help you provide the very best care for your new kitten.

We hope to see you soon!

A Day in the Life of an AMH Veterinary Assistant. Meet Katie.

As a veterinary assistant, most days follow a similar routine of seeing appointments.  When the appointment arrives I get to have the first contact with the patient and his/her owner.  I place them into room and obtain a history on the patient.  After exiting the room, I brief the doctor on the patient and if necessary pull up vaccines for the visit.  Depending on the demeanor of the patient, I may or may not go into the room with the doctor to help restrain the patient for his/her exam.  Throughout the appointment I help make sure medications are filled, blood and fecal samples are obtained and that any necessary lab work is run.

During down time between appointments I work on services that boarders or bathers have requested.  These services include items such as nail trims, anal gland expressions, ear cleaning, microchip implantation or vaccine updates.  I love this opportunity to visit with our regulars in boarding and the bath house and to meet the new arrivals.

Occasionally our day brings us emergencies and special tasks. When emergencies arrive we have an “all hands” on approach and do anything necessary to help save the patient.  Helping to bottle-feed a newborn litter of puppies and making sure to keep the puppies warm is one of the most rewarding things I have done as a veterinary assistant.  I also design and create paint paw prints of our recently deceased patients.
These paw prints allow us to send the owner a special memento of their beloved pet.

Regardless of the doctor I work with, the types of appointments that we have scheduled, or the number of emergencies that present themselves in a day, I always know that I will spend my day doing what I love.

Katie, AMH Veterinary Assistant
