January is Feline Awareness Month and while these furry pets can be low maintenance, they may have certain health requirements that need attention. If you have a feline friend at home or are thinking about adding one to your family, we recommend reading Cat Friendly’s article for tips on how to best care for your feline family member.
- Senior CareDid you know that pets age faster than people and can be considered “seniors” at around 7 years of age? Just as our health care needs change as we age, your pet’s health care needs also change. Nutritional needs, exercise habits, and many aspects of your pet’s daily routine can change as your pet ages.
- Dental CareDespite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria leads to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened gums, and other common signs of dental disease.
- Pet DermatologyDo your cats and dogs scratch incessantly, causing dry, exposed patches on their coats? Your dogs' itchy skin and cats' itchy skin may be more than just a reaction to dry air. They may be having an allergic reaction to food, fabric or something else in their environment. A visit to the veterinarian to identify

Our Clients Love Us!
The first time I went into this office I had to put down my 9 year old English budgie. The second time I went into this office, not even a week later, I was bringing in my sick 12 year old budgie because it looked like she was fading fast. As a new client, the folks here were very accommodating, kind, and especially warm So, first visit. Nicky, 9 years old. He had a tumor that he was really struggling with and Kayla was very nice, very kind, the type of caring person who belongs in this field. Big Nick was a really cool guy. I just wish this office had seen him in his prime. My other budgie, the 12 (yes, 12) year old Chloe, fell ill a day or two later. She was puffed up, closing her eyes, and had lost a lot of weight. Her average weight is about 39, but she was down to 31.5, which is alarming for a creature of her size. Felicia was very accommodating in getting Chloe in at the soonest possible time. Again, brand new client and I feel she went above and beyond to get Chloe in. Dr. Grey knows her stuff. We were expecting a tumor to be found but much to our surprise, there was nothing obvious there. The theory now is there was some grieving over the loss of Big Nick that coincided with an infection she picked up. Since there was no obvious physical issue we opted to give her some more R & R and just keep an eye on her for a few days. Ever since then she's been perking back up, showing improvement each and every day. She eats like a madman her weight is back up to 39 or so. We still think there may be something underlying going on inside of her given her age but then again...maybe it was an infection she got over and she was just sad over Nick's loss. I look forward to future visits and getting my dog, Jenny, in there. I like this office a lot. Great work all around. Also big kudos on the candy bowl, that's just terrific.Greg B.
Dr. Grey has been caring for my fur babies for the last 23 years. She is a very compassionate and caring person, which really shows in the care she has for not only my pets but for me and my family. She has seen my children grow along with our 3 pets over the years. I recently moved to Fallbrook and I still travel to CMR for the care of my dog. I wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Dr. Grey and her team are very professional, knowledgeable and the level of customer service is awesome. Whether you are looking for the regular care of your pet or an emergency this is the vet for you. Thank you Dr. Grey and to your team for the excellent care you have provided for our pets!Nancy C.
