Have you watched any of Carol Erickson's 'Ask the Pet Vet'? Many of the episodes feature our
Dr. Michael Moyer and they are full of great information.
Did you know that Heartworms really are worms that live in the heart? They are quite different
to the intestinal worms that we find in your pet's stool. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitos
and we test for them by drawing a small amount of blood from your pet.
Here is some excellent information by the
American Heartworm Society
The following article by our very own Lisa, illustrates the importance of microchipping your pets:
It must have been fate that I left my apartment early to get to my job at Bridgewater Veterinary Hospital;
if I had not left at that time, I don’t think this story would have the happy ending that it does.
I was walking along a very busy street at about 7:55am when I thought I heard a cat meowing sadly.
I stopped walking and took off my ear buds to listen more intently. I heard such a plaintive cry...
It is with both excitement and sadness that I announce my retirement from Bridgewater Veterinary
Hospital at the end of April, 2016. It has been a pleasure getting to know all of our great
clients and I take pride in the fact that I had a hand in helping our wonderful patients.
I have always had the utmost respect for Dr. Moyer and it's been an honor and a privilege serving
as his Practice Manager. There have been ups and downs, as there is with any job, but I can
honestly say that I have loved working here!
I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Christine, our new Hospital Supervisor.
With over 23 years of experience in the veterinary industry, I know she will do a fantastic job.
I will miss everyone but I know that Christine and the rest of our great staff will continue to
provide the excellent service you've come to expect from Bridgewater Veterinary Hospital.
With warmest regards,

What does AAHA mean?
AAHA stands for "American Animal Hospital Association" and you know how human hospitals have
to be "accredited " to be open? Well in Veterinary Medicine, accreditation is voluntary.
order to become accredited, a practice has to adhere to a higher level of veterinary care and
is regularly tested on over 900 different standards.
At Bridgewater Veterinary Hospital, we have been AAHA Accredited for 26+ years and this puts us in
the top 15% of veterinary hospitals nationwide.

Remembering our Pets
In December 2014 Ann's dog, Teaka, turned 12 years old. Knowing that they were on borrowed time
with him, her husband put together a memories page
celebrating his life. Sadly, Teaka crossed the Rainbow Bridge a few months later but Ann often
visits his page and smiles as she remembers the wonderful times they shared.
If you have lost a well-loved pet and you'd like to share their picture on our
Rainbow Bridge page, just email the picture to us and we'll
add it for you.
