Farewell from Dr. Gillham
To my treasured clients & beloved patients,
My time at Associates Animal Hospital has come to an end. As of December 31, 2017, I will no longer be practicing here with my colleagues and friends.
I have been so happy to have had the privilege of being trusted with the care of your pets over the years. Being their veterinarian has been central to my life and has brought me great joy as well as sharing in times of sadness. Sharing in your lives and treating all the generations of your pets has allowed me a professional life that most would envy. I will miss you all and thank you for trusting the care of your pets to me.
I am leaving you in good hands. Dr. Rosiello, who has been with Associates Animal Hospital since 2003, is now leading the medical team. He is joined by Dr. Badner who started with our practice this year, and who many of you already know. They have great medical expertise and are completely dedicated to the care of your pets and meeting your needs. You are in the best of hands. Allison, Kaitlyn, Mac and the rest of the support team will also continue to ensure that you and my patients will always receive the very best of care.
Support the People and Pets of Texas
Hurricane Harvey's impact on Texas and the south has been extremely devestating. In times like these, it is important for us to support our fellow Americans, including our four-legged friends and other pets.
Please consider donating to the Texas Veterinary Medical Foundation as each gift provides vital support to TVMF's programs. As fellow pet-owners and animal lovers, it is only fitting that we partner with this cause so that we can ensure the safety of both pets and their parents.

Dr. Gillham Honored by Westborough Women's Club
Our very own Dr. Gillham was recently honored by the Westborough Women's Club for her dedication to making sure that every pet in the town gets vaccinated for rabies. For the past 23 years, Dr. Gillham has given up a Saturday morning in April to run a rabies vaccine clinic. This donation of time and effort has, year after year, helped to provide a safer community for our families and pets to live in.
In a recent Wicked Local article, Dr. Gillham was quoted as saying "I'm a veterinarian and part of our call is public service. Every veterinarian I know does something for the community" later going on to say that this was part of her responsibility. She was formally presented with her award on May 9, 2016.

Now Offering Senior Wellness Packages
Our senior patients are near and dear to us. That is why we are excited to share that Associates Animal Hospital now offers Senior Wellness Packages!
In addition to your pet receiving a complete physical exam, we will also do a free glaucoma or blood pressure screening, depending on your pet's needs.
Older pets can develop many of the same health issues that people may develop as they age, such as cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, hyperthyroid and diabetes. Because of the more rapid age changes in our furry family members, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recommends that pets over 7 years of age be examined twice a year by a veterinarian.
