Brookwood Animal Hospital
September, October, and November 2018 Blue Williams
Blue is a special one. He and his brother were found in a dumpster years ago and taken into a loving home by Ms. Williams. Blue has numerous aliments that require long term care, but his recent encounter with Copperheads have taken his care to a whole new level. It has been over 4 months, multiple surgeries, different e-collars, more elasticon, gauze, and telfa pads then I have used in a long time, and endless patience. Ms. Williams had dedicated a very large amount of both time and money to help him get better. I am in awe of her dedication.
August 2018 Brewer Montgomery
Brewer is the newest member of the Montgomery family. He is a laid back pup who has been a pleasure to work with thus far. He loves to have his belly rubbed (which we are happy to do!). His big brother, who came from the same breeder, has been such a joy that a 17 hour drive to pick up Brewer from the same breeder did not deter the Montgomery's. Based on what we have seen so far, this guy was well worth the drive!
July 2018 Dashiell Whitlock
Dash has become a personal favorite of many members of the kennel staff after his first time boarding this summer. He is sweet, outgoing, and loves to give and receive attention.
June 2018 Chevy Nova James
Chevy Nova is a new addition. She came in a with a delightful, beautiful family who clearly love their new girl. She is a sweet dog with a great disposition. No doubt this girl is a lucky one to become a member of the James family!
May 2017 Lexi Hardee
So I know this is a repeat, but after losing Lexi this month after battling cancer, I felt compelled to give her another month slot. Lexi has been a long standing patient and is one of the sweetest dogs this clinic has ever met. She was always happy when she came in, even when her she was in pain. Hearing stories from her owners about life at home and her gentleness with the grandkids always made me smile. She is a dog that has touched so many of us here and will never be forgotten!
April 2018 Goldie Chesterman
Goldie is a rescue who has been 2007 when she was found wandering outside. She was taken in and given a loving home ever since. She most recently underwent surgery, which she recovered from and is doing great. When the owner came to get her, the love they have for each other was clearly evident in the exam room! What a lucky girl to wander into the Chesterman's yard year ago!
March 2018 Murphy Holt
Murphy is a little dog with a big heart. He has dealt with a host of conditions affecting his eyes and limbs. His owners are extremely dedicated to him, taking him to specialist and caring for his special needs. Even with his recent cancer diagnosis and surgery, Murphy bounds into the office like he doesn't have a care in the world. He is a truly a special dog with incredible owners.
January/February 2018 Fred BAH
Fred was a stray and fostered by one of our clients. He came to live at the clinic, filling our broken hearts with love and joy after losing our beloved Izzy. He is curious, playful, loved to investigate any cat (and some dogs) who come to see us. He can be found lounging in the sun, running through the halls playfully chasing a toy, welcoming our clients, or searching for trouble! We are so thankful for him.
December 2017 Watson Cushing
Watson was adopted over 3 years ago as a senior pet through a rescue. He has been though a host of health concerns, including heartworm disease and cataracts.

He will have the joy of living out his life in a home full of love with owners who care for him endlessly.
October/November 2017 Buster Campbell
Buster is a very well loved cat who has always been on the heavy side...until recently. Ms. Campbell has worked diligently over the past year to help him lose over 6.5lbs.

August and September 2017 Pickles Gunadeva
Pickles was a stray that lived outside. He slowly warmed up the Gunadevas, allowing them to pet him and eventually handle him. Shortly after coming to their house, he became very ill with kidney disease. He could not have picked a better house, though, as he is being treated for his kidney disease and loved beyond measure.
June and July 2017 Archie and Katie Phillips
Archie and Katie are both recent rescues by Ms. Phillips, a long time client of ours. Archie is a spunky little guy with half an ear on one side, which only lends to his cuteness! Katie was rescued from a puppy mill and despite heartworm disease, heart disease, and a very timid personality, has found a wonderful home with Ms. Phillips. It is so hearwarming to see the tenderness for which she cares for these animals.

February 2017 Lexi Hardee
Lexi has been a long standing patient and boarder with us. Despite being an older dog, she is full of energy every time we see her. She is always sweet and one of the favorites by the kennel staff. She was posing for pictures outside the last time she was here!
January 2017 Jack Horton
Jack was a rescue by Ms. Horton a few years ago. He was recently diagnosed with Addison's disease, which is when the body does not produce enough steroids to maintain normal organ function. Thankfully, Ms. Horton has pursued treatment, bringing him in monthly for injections and medicating him at home. He is now doing very well, even hiking with Ms. Horton on the weekends.
December 2016 Sugar Baby Flanders
Sugar Baby is a sweet kitty who is owned by an even sweeter lady. She was rescued from a shelter after "picking" Ms. Flanders as her forever owner. Sugar Baby escaped one day from her house and was found injured. Ms. Flanders did all she could to help her little friend, who despite a wired, broken jaw, is doing wonderfully. She and Ms. Flanders share a special bond that is evident when watching them interact.
November 2016 Giselle Umanzor

October 2016 Izzy Yeomans
Izzy was found at the lake years ago by Dr. Yeomans and his family. She was brought to the clinic, which became her home. She lived her life spending her time outside playing, meeting other cats, investigating cars in our parking lot, and greeting clients and pets that came in our door. She roamed inside, moving from room to room to see what we were doing and to find a lap to lay in. She was such a treasured member of our animal hospital, so even though she crossed the rainbow bridge this month, she will always have a special place in our hearts.
September 2016 Pikolo Hering
Pikolo is a new client to us who we met on an emergency basis after ingesting xylitol. Luckily, his owners rushed him to the clinic, then took him to St. Francis Veterinary Hospital for continued care. He is now back to his usual self, and we were so pleased to have him visit again once he was well. We are looking forward to seeing him in the future.
August 2016 Mia Manahan
Mia has been through so much in her lifetime--a long battle with demodectic mange as a puppy, vaccine reactions, multiple mast cell tumors, heart disease, and cancer, which she is currently battling. Through it all, Mia has been such a trooper though. Her owner should also get a special place as well. Everything Ms. Manahan does is for Mia. She has spent time, finances, and unending love to help Mia in any way she can. They truly have a special bond that is evident every time you see them.
July 2016 Elaine Armendroff
Elaine came to us months ago for management of chronic kidney disease. She is one spunky kitty. She tolerated her fluids well, receiving them twice a week right now. She has a dedicated owner who loves her dearly, which always warms my heart. Despite her advanced age, she is one of the fasted kitties I have ever seen go after a toy. She is such a delight and reminds me to be optimistic on a regular basis.
June 2016 Harley Kearney
Harley is a wonderful dog to begin with, but he earned this spot for his dramatic weight loss. He was at a very heavy 106 lbs at his annual visit last year. This year--76 lbs! He is lean and looking great! The weight loss will help improve his life! Props to the owners who have been diligent with his diet and helped to a new, healthy weight.
May 2016 Honey Kitty Cook
Honey is a sweet kitty who lived life outside for many years. The Cook's were concerned for his safety outside, but were cautious to bring him inside as they had 2 very large dogs at the time. None the less, Honey was welcomed and settled in nicely. He is a sweet, loving kitty who has won over the hearts of his owners, especially Mr. Cook
February, March, and April 2016 Chance, Cedar, and Stache Tuggle
Chance, Cedar, and Stache are from a litter of kittens born outside the Tuggle's house. Fearing for their safety and well being outside, the Tuggle's brought them in and are teaching them how great life inside can be. The kittens are adjusting well and finding their place with the other cats. The Tuggle's have worked hard to socialize them with people, having extreme patience as 2 of the kittens were very fearful when first taken in. They have made such strides so far, which I know will continue in such a loving household.

Beau is unfortunatly no longer with us but he definatly deserves a spot on pet of the month! Beau was adopted by one of our dear clients when he was about 5 years old.

He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
