SALIDA VETERINARY HOSPITAL
April 9, 2010 ISSUE 10, Vol. 36 2009-2010 Editor: Donna Murphy donnamurphy @sbcglobal.net Salida Veterinary Hospital – Dr. Paul Sessa ~ by John Freeland Next to your closest relatives, your pets are often most dear to you. The Salida Veterinary Hospital (SVH) specializes in small animal care, particularly dogs and cats. In addition to emergency care, SVH offers well- ness care, spay and neuter service, dentistry, boarding, bathing and grooming, along with dietary recommendations and food supplements. Other services include surgeries, reproductive services, and microchip identification. Salida Veterinary Hospital was opened in 1997 by Dr. Paul Sessa. Located at 4566 Salida Boulevard, SVH also provides house calls by appointment. (545-9590.) Dr. Sessa says that mentoring young people interested in veterinary medicine is one of his passions. He has worked with Cameron Hinke, one of Salida Rotary’s scholarship recipients in 2008. Dr. Sessa is a proponent of spay and neutering. As he explained, one female cat and her offspring, with no restrictions on available mates and whose offspring are similarly situated, has the capacity to give birth to 13,000 kittens over ten years. Dr. Sessa says that Stanislaus County has a significant problem with such a high level of stray animals, which results in thousands of animals being euthanized each year. This month Dr. Sessa and other veterinarians from our county are involved in Project X, which has a goal of spay and neutering 1,000 cats. For quality, caring veterinary services, contact Dr. Sessa at Salida Veterinary Hospital.
