Pet of the Month Archives

kole“Kole” (Domestic Short Hair) Kole came to our family quite unexpected.  We brought our hamster, Pumpkin, in to board and my son asked to see the room Pumpkin would be boarding in.  Tucked back in the corner of a cage were two baby kittens.  The male came to the edge of the cage and my son and I instantly fell in love with him.  We had never previously considered adoption, but it was clear to us we could not bear the thought of not having this little guy as a part of our family. Kole is a precious addition to our home. This was meant to be! The men and women at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital have been so wonderful to us.  They are always so happy to see Kole and Pumpkin when they arrive.  If you have the time and love to give, we highly encourage adoption of a pet of your choice. It has been a blessing to our family. “Kole” has been voted “Pets of the Month” for November by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital. Congratulations “Kole”

Rosebud“Rosebud” (Shih Tzu) From the beginning Rosebud has been the sweetest puppy in the litter. Rosebud came into our lives on July 13, 2013, a very lucky day for our family. When she joined our home she brought nothing but joy and love. Rosebud is extremely high energy and loves to run and play with our daughter. Along with giving an abundance of kisses, she loves to jump and nip, with love of course.  We chose Lone Mountain hospital after going to a big box pet shop where an employee suggested Lone Mountain as a caring place for pets. After our first services we agreed and we’ve been coming every since for pet services and boarding. Lone Mountain is a home away from home for Rosebud.  “Rosebud” has been voted “Pet of the Month” for August by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital. Congratulations “Rosebud”

Mango“Mango” (Green Wing Macaw)Mango’s human parents write:  Mango is a beautiful Green Wing Macaw that her parents rescued about 2 years ago. Her unique personality provides her parents comic relief on a daily basis.  There are so many endearing qualities about Mango, but one of our favorite things is the way she will climb up in our laps, put her head down for a pet and say “Hi”.  When she is ready for a bath she walks into the bathroom raps on the shower door and then waits until the water is just right to go in!  Bedtime is a breeze as when you tell her it is bedtime she walks right to her cage and gets in.    Mango found Lone Mountain Animal Hospital when a fellow bird lover recommended Dr. Starks.  Dr. Starks has taken the time to get to know Mango and the other bird family members and has taken the time to answer any questions we may have.  Mango and all our birds love Dr. Starks and the team at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital . “Mango” has been voted “Pets of the Month” for July by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital. Congratulations “Mango”

Tigger” (Domestic Short Hair)tigger pet of the monthMy name is Tigger.  I am 10 years old this month.  I was found by my adoptive parents in a field in Utah.  I was brought to Dr. White as a kitten.  Dr. White gave me fluids as I was extremely  dehydrated.  My parents bottle fed me until I was strong enough to eat solid food.  I have travelled over 32,000 miles and enjoy being brushed, love to be around clean laundry fresh out of the dryer and sunning myself in the backyard.  I have a double jointed paw which allows me to run and jump to turn around and go in the other direction.  The staff at Lone Mountain love when I stay for a visit, just like I love to go there.   My human parents have owned over two dozen pets over the years and love that Lone Mountain Animal Hospital is always there for us when we need them.“Tigger” has been voted “Pets of the Month” for May by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital. Congratulations “Tigger”

Destiny and Spike” (Desert Tortoise)destiny and spikeDestiny and Spikes mom  says:  Spike and Destiny are Mojave Desert tortoises born in Blue Diamond, Nevada in the Spring of 2010. They came to live with us in June of that year. Nearly four years later, we still refer to them as “the babies.” We love them! We ask one another, “Did you check on the babies? How are the babies? Has anyone fed the babies?” We recently hosted a dinner party featuring  entertainment provided by our pet rat, Ignat. Unbeknownst to us, the rat was not properly returned to her cage. The next morning, much to our horror, we discovered Destiny and Spike had suffered greatly at the hands (teeth) of Ignat. Fortunately, with the incredible care provided by Dr. Lee and our wonderful friends at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital, our sweet babies survived the “Great Rat Mauling of 2014” and are currently thriving, albeit with three legs instead of four.  “Spike and Destiny” has been voted “Pets of the Month” for April by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital.  Congratulations “Destiny and Spike”

February 2014 “Jackson” (Fila Brasileirojackson pet of th emont)
My Family discovered Lone Mountain Animal Hospital sometime in the late 90’s. Since then they have been a constant source of care and comfort to all of our 4 legged friends. I could go on endlessly with stories of praise & gratitude, but have decided to just share “our” most recent triumph. Last month, my 2 year old Fila Brasileiro, Jackson, became very ill. Both before & after surgery he required round the clock care. Leaving him behind was absolute torture! You see, Jax, true to his breed, does NOT make friends easily (if @ all)… I imagined him alone and suffering, feeling abandoned and depressed. Well, thankfully, the dedicated and compassionate Doctors and staff were determined to win him over. Through kindness, patience, and endless treats, they were able to achieve a level of mutual trust & affection I hadn’t dreamed possible outside the family. Thankfully, their tireless efforts and compassion did not end there. I was kept constantly reassured and informed for the week and a half that my best friend was in their care. Followed by, endless support and concern until he was fully recovered. We will be forever grateful to you all! Much love, the Curtis family. “Jackson” has been voted “Pet of the Month” for February by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital. Congratulations “Jackson”

January 2014 “Sheldon” (Desert Tortoise)
Sheldon Basket Jan 2014Sheldon’s human parents write: In October 2010, a friend of ours found a baby desert tortoise on a shelf at the pet store where she worked. She knew the school we worked at housed desert tortoises, so she asked us to take him to school. That was the plan, but once we got him home, we fell in love and decided to make him a member of our family.
We were referred to Dr. Lee at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital because of her experience with desert tortoises. We loved Dr. Lee and the welcoming atmosphere the staff created. A few months ago, Sheldon got very sick. He was not responding to his medicine and he wouldn’t eat. Dr. Lee helped us make the decision to put in a feeding tube. We have had the privilege of working with most of the doctors and staff during our many check-up visits. We have been so impressed with the service and care provided to Sheldon, and to us. Everyone knows Sheldon and his picnic basket, and asks about his progress whenever we come in. He is always loved, given plenty of attention, and never leaves without a fully decorated bandage. We can’t think of a better place, or better people, to care for our little guy.“Sheldon” has been voted “Pet of the Month” for January by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital.

Congratulations “Sheldon”

Mugsy and Moose {from left to right in photo} – formerly from Manhattan and now live in Las Vegas. These pug brothers are called “The Babies” by everyone who knows them personally. They are from the same litter and have never been separated from each other in their lives. This photo is from their parents’ wedding this past September. They couldn’t make the long flight back east, but Grandma had them secretly photographed by a professional photographer while she was babysitting one weekend and then had the picture transferred to a large canvas. This photo was waiting on an easel at the end of the aisle as the two daddies made their way out of their ceremony! They love to cuddle and do tricks for treats. They also like to yell when they don’t get their way! These two boys bring constant love and snuggly affection to their daddies, newlyweds Jeff Knaggs and Thom Culcasi.

Mugsy and Moose visit Lone Mountain Animal Hospital for routine care, vaccines and senior wellness testing and any other little medical issues that may pop up. The staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital LOVE to see the boys walk in the door and give extra special hugs in the treatment area from all the staff.

“Gigi Marie” (Papitese)
Gigi MarieLas Vegas, bright “eyed and bushy tailed. She is extremely independent and defiant. We call her the little terrorist as far as Capri the cat is concerned. Gigi loves to play fetch and runs right past you with the ball, Frisbee, branch or shoe, but then returns it for more play. She loves to dance, I think it is some sort of ballroom twirl that is her favorite. She is very well on her way to becoming a puppy gardner” even in the hard Las Vegas dirt she can dig down a good foot. Not sure if she is trying to escape! Those ears of hers draw quite a lot of attention no matter where we are.

“Gigi Marie” has been voted “Pet of the Month” by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital.

Congratulations “Gigi Marie”

July 2013 – My name is Lacey
jul13Lacey is a six year old Lhasa Apso who loves to roll over and beg to have her belly rubbed. She is also very playful with a tennis ball and dares her siblings to get the ball from her. Lacey has had many health issues the past year, thinking she has recovered 100%, the doctors would find some other issue that would need special attention. However, it looks like we finally got a handle on her health after she just went through major cystotomy surgery to have bladder stones and treat a urinary tract infection. Because of her past health issues, the doctors were concerned if Lacey would fully recover after surgery but Lacey bounced back 110% and is now back to ball chasing, harassing her siblings and pleading to have that belly rubbed. When taking Lacey to visit the doctor for her checkups, she wags her tail when we check in because she knows she will get that loving treatment from the front desk . The whole staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital treat Lacey like family and she knows it. Lacey says: “More belly rubs please?”. Congratulations “Lacey”

June 2013 – My name is Ducky
jun13Say hello to “Ducky” our June pet of the month, Ducky is a 3 year old Meyers Parrot. Recently Ducky had to spend a few days at our hospital due to a leg wound. He is a spunky bird and liked to try and take his bandage off to see what it looked like! Ducky’s mom and dad were very diligent about making sure he came in for bandage changes and making sure the leg was healing well. Their love and care certainly paid off and Ducky is doing so much better. Congratulations “Ducky”

apr13Say hello to April’s pet of the month, Gsxr , a sweet 9 year old English Bulldog.

Gsxr hung out in treatment and watched the staff to make sure they were keeping in line. Gsxr was great when it was time to give care to his toe, he would roll over and make sure we would rub his belly. The staff especially loved his nap time when he would snore a beautiful melody for everyone! Congratulations “Gsxr”

February 2013 – My name is Juno
feb13My mom says: “Meet Juno, we found him at the Animal Foundation after we lost our dog of 17 years. I wasnâ’t sure I would know who to pick until I saw this sad little dog. He was filthy, emaciated and had frost bite to both his ears, but had these big brown eyes that looked like someone outlined them with eyeliner. I noticed on the kennel card that he was being evaluated for euthanasia and knew at that moment he was coming home with me. He could not come home with me that night, but when he came home the next day his dad saw him for the first time and asked “What are we going to do with him?” I replied “Love him” and that is what we have done every day. Juno is that dog who loves every other animal, loves people and they love him, makes sure he protects people and animals that need protection and is known in the neighborhood for his wardrobe and jewelry. He even knows how to do things the first time we ask without ever being taught by us, it amazes us and leaves us puzzled! It breaks our heart on the days he does not feel good and has to go to Lone Mountain Animal Hospital, but we know he is getting the best possible care.

January 2013 – My name is Winnie Arf!

I love them and they love me. They love to pet my long, soft fur, I can sometimes calm anxious residents and you will even hear them say “This is the best thing that has happened to me today”. Most love kisses on their cheeks, sometimes, I surprise them with a kiss on the end of their nose – this really makes them laugh!! The residents say my breath smells clean, thanks to my yearly dental cleaning at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital, which we have been going to for many, many years.At home, I like to curl up in bed with my Dad. My big Husky sister, Sasha, and I look out for each other. I taught Sasha how to give one bark to get in and out!!!

dec12This is Austin, he’s a 14 year old Poodle and an important member of our family. We adopted him when he was 3. He’s smart and playful and although he is losing his hearing he still manages to know when we’re in the kitchen making kid’s school lunches or cooking dinner so he has the chance to ask for a snack. Austin has a poodle brother named Tucker who doesn’t see very well so Austin does the seeing and his brother Tucker does the hearing. Austin recently had a dental at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital and feels “Oh so much better now”. This picture is of Austin after his surgery recently, he felt great and had a super recovery! “Austin” has been voted “Pet of the Month” for December by the doctors and staff at Lone Mountain Animal Hospital.

He moved to Las Vegas eight years ago, enjoying the car ride in the back window and getting honks from other cars. With good veterinary care, in the last year he has overcome cavities, a chest infection, and a bout with diabetes.
