Home we went with pain meds, cortisone injection and prednisone with 2 weeks of rest. He was his wonderful little self the next day and almost done with meds.

On August 30, 2023 was one of the hardest days of my life, having to put my fur baby down. I can’t say enough about Carson’s Veterinary Hospital! From the front desk to the staff in the back to the doctors and the helpers, these individuals are hands down number one in my books. They did everything possible to help make this transition a peaceful one. You people will always hold a special place in my heart, thank you a million times!!!

Our beloved dog, Advan, of 14years recently was diagnosed with prostate cancer and passed on 06/24/2023. Advan (Addie, Addicans, old man - they all fit) was our special boy and our hearts are broken. Carson Clinic, specifically Dr. Frady (but the ENTIRE staff) was there with us as our boy passed. Dr. Frady even sat and cried with us as we held him for the final time. This staff will never know how much it meant to me and my wife Kimberly the love, compassion and kindness afforded to us. Its easy to take care of happy, h... read more
