Light Rail Construction Update: Construction has completed and our original U-Turn is back open.  Traveling uphill, southbound, on N. Tryon St. you can also U-Turn at the left turn light at Institute Circle (in front of Chipotle).

Jerky Treat Kidney Damage: We have seen an increase in patients with kidney damage from being fed Jerky Treats.  Do not feed any Jerky Treats (Jerky or dried meat).  If your pet has eaten Jerky Treats contact us for blood and urine tests for kidney damage.  We have not seen kidney problems from rawhide alone but have seen kidney damage from rawhide twisted around jerky.  For a number of years, the FDA has been investigating cases of kidney damage, including death in some cases.  They cannot recall these products since they have not been able to prove a specific cause.  Dangerous products a being sold currently.
