/ PR Agency: PRMG
VALLEY STREAM, NY — ImproMed, LLC has announced that Central Veterinary Associates has been named Outstanding Veterinary Contributor during its annual Customer of the Year Awards.

Central Veterinary Associates was cited for its work on the set of the film “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” where they took care of the penguins during the filming while under the strict supervision of a penguin specialist. They performed weaning on the penguins to get them acclimated to their new environment. Small amounts of saline were added to their diet which allowed them to fully develop their vestigial supraorbital glands, which allow the penguins to live in and drink salt water and remove the salt from the water.

Before the penguins were shipped to Hong Kong, the veterinarians at Central Veterinary Associates performed monthly checkups and blood work, tested them for West Nile virus and avian influenza and checked them for Aspergillosis (a group of illnesses caused by mold) and Bumblefoot (a bacterial infection mostly found on the feet of birds).

In addition, Impromed, LLC cited Central Veterinary Associates for their care of exotic animals that were either injured or abandoned. They cared for a three-and-a-half-foot long blue heron that suffered two broken bones and a compound fracture in its wing. Although the wing could not be saved, the heron was fully healed and rehabilitated after a few weeks.

On June 4, 2011, a couple spotted a two-and-a-half-foot alligator at Mill Pond in Valley Stream. They captured the reptile and brought it to Central Veterinary Associates. Upon examining the alligator, Dr. John Charos determined the alligator was in fine health and well-fed and approximately two-and-a-half years old. He also said the alligator may have been kept in someone’s residence — a violation of New York State Department of Health law — and, when it became too big to be taken care of, they dropped it off at the pond.

The veterinarians also took care of a 16-pound Columbian red-tailed boa constrictor that was found abandoned at Springfield Park in Rosedale, Queens. Police officers from the 105th Precinct found the snake and brought it to Central Veterinary Associates. The veterinarians nursed it back to health and, when the owner could not be tracked down, put it up for adoption.

CVA also sends e-blasts to its clients, alerting them of potentially contaminated pet food or canine flu or rabies outbreaks in the area. They have also appeared on local TV and radio stations, offering advice on keeping pets safe during the holidays and the winter and summer months. In addition, CVA keeps its hospital in Valley Stream open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, including all major holidays.

“We would like to thank ImproMed for giving us this prestigious award,” said Dr. Steven Fox, DVM, President/Chief Executive Officer, Central Veterinary Associates. “We have a dedicated staff who not only care about the animals at our state-of-the-art, 24/7/365 hospital and our neighboring clinics, but they have a great appreciation of the environment as well. We are proud to receive this honor.”
