Kato is a wonderful big white kitty cat and is a patient of Salt Lake City

Kato found his way to our porch as a small kitten 10 years ago, yelling his head off for help. He has since grown to a large 18 pound momma's boy who is still very demanding, and fortunately extremely loving, so he is catered to like a king.

Chloe is a soft grey cat and is a patient of Salt Lake City

Chloe was irresistibly dancing and showing off in her pen at the Humane Society of Utah 14 years ago. She was eight months old, soft as a bunny and sweet as candy. She has remained a loving companion and set herself up as queen of the household.

Griz is a fluffy black and brown cat with a great personality and is a patient of Salt Lake City

He's a fluffy baby bear to us - that's why we called him Griz. He was a great big fluff ball as a kitten - we just love Griz - he has quite the personality.

Q is a Siamese cat mix and is a patient of Salt Lake City

Q is short for Curiosity. He is named after the Mars Rover launched in 2011. His favorite toy is a cat fishing pole. We got him when he was about 6 weeks old.

Child and Dog National Dog Bite Prevention Week Utah Veterinarian We love our dogs and our pets are an important part of our family.  Dogs can be tremendous companions for children as many of us have wonderful memories of a beloved dog that kept us company during childhood.   However, dogs can bite when threatened, injured or when protecting their territory or their family.  To remind us of this, May 17th-23rd has been declared National Dog Bite Prevention Week.  Research shows that children are the most common victims of dog bites with dog bites ranking #11 among the most common nonfatal injury among children up to age four.   Here are some tips for preventing dog bites:
  1.  Make sure that you socialize your new puppy with other dogs and humans.
  2.  Train your dog and seek outside assistance if you need help.  Call Utah Redwood Veterinary at 801-966-3974 or email us at if you need one of veterinarians to give you a referral to dog trainers in the Salt Lake City area to help with a new pet or an overly aggressive dog.

Does Your Pet Have a Microchip?

We have partnered with HomeAgain, Merck Pharmaceutical's revolutionary program that has helped to return over one million pets to their rightful owners.    Pet's undergo a safe, minor procedure performed by our veterinarians to insert a microchip under their skin.  If the pet is lost and ends up in a shelter or a veterinarian's office, the pet is scanned for the microchip.  The data in the chip contains references that will lead to your contact information and the safe return of your pet.  Over 10 million pets are lost each year - this system can help to recover your pet in the event this would ever happen to your family.

Wanted: Dog Blood Donors

Hero DogsWe need help finding heroes! Have you ever wondered what would happen if your dog needed a blood transfusion? What if he or she gets into rat poison or gets hit by a car and needs blood?

Canine Blood Heroes is coming to Advanced Veterinary Care (AVC) in Salt Lake City. Canine Blood Heroes is a canine blood service that finds eligible dogs to act as blood donors. We are excited that Salt Lake City veterinarians will have a reliable source of canine blood for transfusions. There are so many reasons a dog may need blood: rat bait ingestion, surgery, cancer, trauma, the list goes on. It can be a real challenge to find blood in an emergency situation - this program is designed to help with that challenge. AVC will serve as a central location for collection and storage, and local vets will be able to purchase units of blood when needed for their own clinics.
