Dr. Kristin Fausset is also a Purdue graduate and holds a special interest in dermatology. She joined our staff in February 2012 and is now a full-time associate. AMC welcomes our newest associate, Dr. Jeremiah Bieszczak, who joined us part-time in August 2013. He is a University of Illinois graduate and has experience in emergency and general practice medicine for small animals.
February is National Pet Dental Care month
If your pet has been seen by a veterinarian and a dental cleaning was recommended, now is the time to schedule it! During the month of February, dental cleaning package prices will be discounted by 15% (discount is limited to basic dental package and does not include extractions, medications, bloodwork, etc.). Keeping your pet's teeth free from tartar build-up is more important to your pet's general health than you might think! Excessive bacteria on the teeth affects vital organs such as the heart, lungs and kidneys. Mouth / tooth infections can make your pet sick and be very painful. We recommend having your pet's teeth checked by one of our veterinarians every year.

Beware of Chemical Hazards
Wintertime presents chemical hazards to pets that you should be aware of!
- Even a teaspoon of this sweet-tasting bright-colored liquid can cause an animal's kidneys to shutdown. Make sure your pet has no access to spills of leakage of this potentially deadly chemical.
- Winshield Wiper Fluid
- Wiper fluid contains Methanol and Ethylene Glycol which are toxic to animals. Ingestion can lead to vomiting, lethargy and seizures.
- Ice-Melting Salts
- These types of salt stick to paws and can cause painful tissue damage. If your pet is exposed, make sure to wash his feet to prevent harmful effects.
- Rat Poison
- Rodenticides can contain different harmful, toxic ingredients that can be life threatening.
If your pet has ingested such a substance, it is best to contact your veterinarian immediately and obtain the product packaging to identify the product's ingredients.
