Microchip March - 1/2 Price Special
Every year thousands of pets go missing. A HomeAgain microchip is your pet's permanent ID. A pet microchip—the size of a grain of rice—goes beneath your pet's skin. This permanent ID can never be removed or become impossible to read. HomeAgain uses this ID to contact you and reunite you with your pet.

During the month of March we're offering microchipping at 1/2 price! Just call (205) 967-7383 to schedule your pet. 

For more information contact our office and we will be glad to help..
New Therapeutic (Cold) Laser 
Now Available at AVAC
Cold laser therapy is the latest, noninvasive treatment for a number of conditions, and it's now available at Altadena Valley Animal Clinic.

Unlike heat lasers, cold laser therapy uses non thermal light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation.

Hot laser treatments come with a greater risk of cutting and burning. Cold laser therapy provides a specific beam of light to treat a number of pet aliments and conditions such as:
  • Pain Management
  • Wound Healing
  • Post Surgical Healing
  • Rehabilitation
  • Nerve Regeneration
  • Inflammatory Diseases
  • Acute Musculoskeletal Trauma
  • and various Skin Conditions

Laser therapy is the painless application of healing light...it's fast and effective!

Therapy usually needs multiple administrations within the first one to two weeks of treatment. After the initial set, treatments are spread progressively further apart until the maintenance level needed by your pet is reached.

At AVAC we offer affordable rates on laser therapy treatments for your pet. Call us or come in and ask our staff about this noninvasive, cold laser therapy. It might be just the treatment option your pet needs.

Employee of the Month
Amy Sanford

In every organization there are key employees who are dedicated, loyal, and work hard for the good of the business and its customers. This month we recognize Amy Sanford as the Employee of the Month for those important qualities and so much more.

Amy has been with AVAC for 19 years. She was born in Birmingham, moved to south Florida in 1989, and then returned in 1996. From her starting job working in the kennels, to her current position as Office Manager, Amy has been a valuable employee every step of the way.

As Office Manager, Amy oversees payroll, billing, and accounts payable. One of her most gratifying responsibilities is her work and position as Secretary of the Birmingham Boston Terrier Rescue. Amy's immediate family included three Boston Terriers; Amelia, Bill, and Treble. She also has a cat named Cracker Jack.

On top of her many work and Boston rescue responsibilities, Amy has been taking Amelia and Bill to St. Martins in the Pines assisted living, cottages, and rehab facilities every week for over a year. Their visits bring joy and happiness to the residents.
