Pictures of things going on at Hope Animal Hospital
A cat patient relaxes in a kennel designed to keep them comfortable.
Stacey Roland at the front desk.
Rennie Bodien holds a bunny post-op. Rabbits must be kept warm and be held tightly until they become conscious after anesthesia to prevent them from thrashing and breaking their backs.
In the picture below Cricket may appear to be nursing one of our patients after surgery but she is actually enjoying the heat of a post surgery warming disc. Our patient just got in the way.
Here Cricket is actually looking for food in Lilly’s cage. Lettuce is defiantly not her style. There is no doubt that Cricket is bunny safe. Never would she soil her paws injuring another animal. She would defiantly hire a hit man for any dirty work.
Kittens are fun.
Above is a mother cat from Open Door Animal Sanctuary that we were caring for.
So are baby bunnies
Above is a baby bunny born at Hope Animal Hospital. Missouri House Rabbit Society did a large rescue in Bellville Illinois and this Mom had her babies here. We fostered them until they were ready for adoption. What a joy to watch them grow.

Dr. B with a Borzoi puppy named Amber. Amber had a broken leg. Now she is an AKC Champion and also lure courses.
Nap time is serious business at Hope Animal Hospital.
Dr. B’s dog Gaze napping with Monkey. Monkey is actually a stuffed gorilla that Gaze likes to carry around.
Maybe Cricket won’t notice me and I can get some time alone.
Why do I try? It never works.
Now that’s a cute bunny face!
George was sleeping in the box minding his own business when Cricket comes along and lies on top of him. Now her weight is pushing George out of the box. Of course Cricket the Prima Donna is very unconcerned.
Cricket is pregnant and here are the kittens to prove it. Actually, Cricket loved this litter of kittens from Senior Dog Project rescue and enjoyed mothering them.
Why do the hospitalized cats get all the good food?
This is Rennie’s cat Spike. He would rather we didn’t exist.
George hanging with the boys Philly and Pierre
We could not resist the reference when we found this baby covered in Kale juice.
Cricket does not stand by her man she stands on her man.
Another exhausting day ends greeting pets and their people at Hope Animal Hospital
Cricket is laying among the raffle baskets. Can you find her?
How could you not love that face?
