As one of the first veterinary practices in Canada to install an underwater treadmill and therapy pool, Aldergrove Animal Hospital gives pets care that rivals what their owners get. In tandem with The SPAW Canine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, therapists heal dogs with aquatic care that ranges from therapeutic ultrasounds to non-impact water exercise. Of course, Drs. Jeff Bowra and Sharon Moloney and their team of animal-care specialists would prefer that dogs never need physical therapy, which is why they provide preventative and emergency veterinary care tailored for puppies and kittens through senior animals. They also strive to take care of animals beyond the hospital's facilities, giving owners online care guides on topics such as parasite prevention and how to save for dog college.
When doctors told Joey and Darryl Simon that their son Jet’s premature birth could result in learning disabilities, the couple immersed him in the world of art as a means of helping him overcome any educational obstacles. Their tutelage and care paid off, resulting in an impressive array of paintings from their child at a very young age. Jet’s talent and creativity inspired his parents to establish 4Cats Arts Studio in hopes of unleashing the inner artists of other children as well as adults. The Simons accomplish this mission through hands-on sessions in mixed media, painting, and Artist Focus classes, which concentrate on the histories and styles of certain artists, such as Picasso’s cubism and Andy Warhol’s self-portraits of soup cans.
