What Vets in McKinney Say About an Older Puppy Trying to Nurse

Bringing home a new puppy is a great joy for your family and the puppy. As time goes on, you might notice that your puppy still tries to nurse. They may find the nearest blanket, knead it with their paws and suck on the blanket. Some will even fall asleep while firmly biting on the blanket. Some dogs will do this as they get older as well. It is not uncommon to see a dog that is a few years old still trying to nurse. This usually happens because the puppy was removed from the mother too soon, or the mother weaned the dog too soon. If this behavior worries Read more

Compounding Medications at Stonebridge

A wise professor once told me that medications don’t do any good when they’re still in the bottle. Many veterinary patients (especially kitties) resist taking tablets or capsules by mouth. In an effort to make life easier for pet owners and assure that patients receive the medications they need, Dr. Mapes is able to compound those drugs into liquid form. Dosing is usually much easier this way and has proven to be helpful for a lot of our patients at our animal hospital McKinney. Compounding medication is not difficult – mainly an exercise in mathematics. We calculate the milligrams of Read more

By Dr. Ed Mapes Stonebridge Animal Hospital McKinney, TX Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) disorders are very commonly seen in our canine patients; less so in felines. The ACL combines with the Posterior Cruciate Ligament to hold the femur in proper alignment with the tibia bone within the knee joint. Many factors are involved in damage to this important structure, and all of these must be taken into account when assessing an animal and the most appropriate treatment at your animal hospital McKinney. Partial or complete tears of the ACL can happen to any dog if acute trauma occurs. This usually involves Read more

It’s What Lies Below that Counts:
Unseen Sources of Pain

By Dr. Ed Mapes Stonebridge Animal Hospital McKinney, TX There’s a very good reason that dentists obtain X-rays before starting any treatments in your mouth: most dental trouble lies secreted beneath the gum line, hidden from view. Oral disease is sneaky; teeth above the surface can look perfectly healthy while there’s actually painful trouble down below. Veterinarians use the same motivation when we do oral X-rays on our patients. We have to look deeper to find the a patient’s real oral problems. I never had access to dental X-rays before opening our animal hospital in McKinney, and I was a Read more

The New Role of Stem Cells in Treating Cruciate Ligament Injuries

By Dr. Ed Mapes Stonebridge Animal Hospital McKinney, Tx Regenerative stem cells have a long and successful history in the treatment of ligament damage in horses.

Cruciate ligament injuries fall into several categories: 1)   Long-standing, chronically affected knees in which surgery have never been performed. The body attempts to stabilize the joint with scar tissue and thickening Read more
