Every critter has a story, and one of the things we enjoy most about our work here at the clinic is the diversity of those stories. Our feline friend Canarsie has had many twists and turns in her life road. Her companion Judy was gracious enough to relate her “tale:” “Canarsie’s first human family moved away and left her to fend for herself, near the apartment complex in Hayward where my co-worker Pat lived (in Hayward).

Recently Campus Veterinary Clinic lost one of it’s most beloved patients “Q” Harper. In his seven years of life, Q endeared himself not only to his owner Ken, but all of the doctors and staff here at the clinic.

Additionally, he was found to be FIV positive (learn about FIV here). The futureRead More →

Penelope arrived as a broken, homeless, little kitten of just 8 weeks of age brought to us by the City of Berkeley Animal Control. Not only was her pelvis fractured, her right leg was very badly broken. Our only guess is she was struck by a car. Even in her terrible condition she was sweet and loving. She immediately won the heart of the entire staff here at Campus Veterinary Clinic not only due to her sweetness, but her incredible desire to live. Penelope needed surgery on her broken leg and had no loving owner. This surgery was far beyond the abilities of the CityRead More →
