Our Clinic Cat
Flower, Clinic Cat Flower is our personality filled clinic cat. She is an expert at finding treats, playing with toys, and laying on important papers. Flower likes to "help" at the reception desk by walking across the computer keyboards and taking over the chairs of our reception team. But we appreciate her loving purrs and comforting presence the most. Flower has become a "star" on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Being somewhat of a "diva," she loves posing for pictures. Be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages to keep up with her!
In Memory of Olson April 3, 2011 - October 24, 2021 Olson was our dearly loved clinic dog. He loved everyone and made our days at Newton Animal Hospital special. These are a few of the things we will remember about Olson: watching him run freely in the dog yard, walking him to the Chisholm Trail Country Store next door so he could carefully choose the perfect treat, watching him gently meet the children who came to visit him, his willingness to wear funny hats and costumes for the holidays, and the gentle carefulness with which he took treats from our hands being careful to never bite our hands. Most importantly, we will miss the joy with which he met us every day. With his ears perked up and his tail wagging, Olson brought love and joy to both staff and clients every day. Olson was the best clinic dog and friend anyone could ever ask for. Thank you for making us all feel special every day. We love you, Olson.
