We’re proud to share that our very own Dr. David Schwarz and technicians Josh Robshaw and Miriam Applin are certified BART trainers!

BART logoBART (Basic Animal Rescue Training) is a Department of Homeland Security-approved course that provides emergency personnel with the training, knowledge, and equipment necessary to safely and effectively address the needs of animals in emergency situations. 

Dr. Schwarz, Josh, Miriam, and Dr. Ilene Segal of Parkway Veterinary Hospital in West Roxbury, a friend and colleague of Dr. Schwarz, donate their time teaching first responders the important skills needed for disaster preparation. This includes animal restraint, handling, evacuation, first aid, resuscitation and more.

Fat Cat on a ScaleThere are many reasons your pet may need a special diet including:

  • gastrointestinal conditions
  • kidney disease
  • diabetes
  • liver disease
  • urinary tract disease
  • obesity

Although some of these diets can be obtained at the pet store, a 'prescription diet' may be needed. Prescription diets are only sold by veterinarians, because they can recommend the best diet possible based on the symptoms seen, physical examination, and with the help of lab work and diagnostics.

Dogs and cats can be overweight and obese just like humans! This is assessed by weighing them on a scale, and also using a body condition scoring (BCS) system. After performing a physical examination, we can make recommendations about exercise and diet management based on the individual case.
