CAUSE FOR PAWS GREETING CARDS
**Local favorite Lori Faye Bock Art Greeting Cards are now available at both VESC locations!
New Mexico artist, Lori Faye Bock Art Greeting Cards are available for purchase at both the Santa Fe and Albuquerque locations. These adorable cards appeal to dog and cat lovers and feature three distinct themes: dogs only, cats only, and dogs and cats together. These sought-after, artistic cards are sold in gift portfolios of 10 distinct portraits that feature the usual whimsical and fun reproductions of her original paintings that locals have come to love about Lori Faye Bock.
Best of all, proceeds from each sale go toward funding Cause for Paws, a local non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of pets whose families cannot afford veterinary critical care. So, pick up a unique gift for someone special in your life and help save a pet's life at the same time!
Lori Faye Bock's work can be seen in galleries across the country. She shares her Abiquiu, NM home with a farm full of furry friends that inspire her work each day. Visit Lori Faye Bock at lorifayebock.com.
**Cause for Paws is here to help!
Cause for Paws is a new non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives and fighting economically-based euthanasia by funding critical veterinary care for sick and injured New Mexico pets whose owners cannot afford such care. Cause for Paws is in need of much-needed donations to help end the devestating choice between euthanasia or life. All too often pet owners are forced to euthanize their pet simply because they do not have the funds to pay for critical care that would normally save their pet's life. Won't you please help?!! Visit Cause for Paws by clicking here or by calling Lynda Stevens at 505-884-3433. All donations are fully tax-deductible. Thank you! www.causeforpawsnm.org

MRI is here!
Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Centers offers the only veterinary Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in New Mexico dedicated to small animals. Located at our Santa Fe facility, veterinarians in New Mexico and surrounding states can refer patients to us for this vital diagnostic study. An MRI uses a very strong magnetic field to align the natural spinning of water molecules within body tissues. MR images are formed by tiny radio frequency signals generated as the nuclei spin. The molecular alignment that occurs on the sub microscopic level cannot be felt and has no known harmful effects. The radio signals are collected by small antennae, called receiving coils, placed outside the patient near the area we are interested in evaluating. An advantage of the MRI is its ability to produce images that are simple cross-sections as well as from any other angle with equal resolution. MRI scans give the best soft tissue contrast of all the imaging modalities. VESC also offers computed axial tomography (CT) scans in our Albuquerque facility. To schedule or learn more about our MRI and our CT, please contact us at (505) 216-3351 or (505) 883-8387. You may also use our printable referral form.
