Services for Your Pet


Thorough physical examinations are provided to evaluate your pet's overall health. Eyes, ears, heart and lung sounds, teeth and gums, skin and weight are assessed.

As with humans, routine visits are vital to a pet's health. Our pets age more rapidly than we do, and as they grow older, they need more frequent examinations to assess their changing health.

 

Surgical Services


Our surgical suite is designed and equipped with the same life monitoring technology that you would expect at a human hospital. Pain assessment and management is of the utmost importance to the pet’s surgical care. Separate feline and canine surgical recovery wards offer a peaceful hygienic place for your pet to safely rouse after surgery and it is monitored by our attentive surgical technicians. Our Surgical Suite is equipped with life monitoring instruments for both elective and emergency surgery.

Fecal Testing

 

Analysis of your pet’s stool can identify internal parasites (worms) and infectious diseases (Giardia). Some pets aquire them in utero while others can acquire them through the environment. Often, worms are too small to be visible without the aid of a microscope and lab analysis.

We recommend bi-annual fecal testing to ensure your pet’s health and recommend a monthly preventative such as Interceptor.

Dentistry

 

More than 85% of dogs and cats that are at least 4 years of age have a condition in which bacteria attacks gum tissue. This condition is called periodontal disease.

Although this condition is treatable when caught early, if left untreated can cause serious damage to organs which may result in death. Periodontal disease is preventable; the key to your pet’s oral health is professional veterinary dental care along with a good home dental routine.

Pets can live a longer and healthier life if oral health can be managed and maintained throughout their lives.

As with humans, dental hygiene is a critical part of your pet’s overall health. Dental decay and gum infections are often hard for owner’s to detect. As part of your pet’s annual exam, our doctors will recommend the best treatment plan for your pet.

Along with home oral care, your pet’s teeth may need a professional scaling, polishing and thorough oral exam under sedation to evaluate for any further periodontal therapy.

We offer digital dental x-rays for immediate dental images. This state-of-the-art system allows the dental team to identify cavities, hidden dental structures and bone loss under the gumline that can not be detected during a visual exam.

Our Ultima 500 II SF Dental Unit allows the team to perform a thorough professional scaling and polishing along with certain exodontics and periodontal surgery and therapy.

How to Brush Your Pet's Teeth

 

Puppy & Kitten Care

 

Your newest family member needs special pediatric veterinary attention. In addition to our pediatric vaccine protocol, our team will give you guidance regarding deworming, heartworm testing and preventative, flea/tick prevention, behavioral training and nutritional recommendations.

 

Spay and Neuter

 

Spaying and neutering are safe routine surgical procedures that provide many advantages to your pet’s health and help to prevent certain types of diseases. Additionally, spaying and neutering at a young age may alter your pet’s behavior, making them less aggressive which reduces the chances of your pet straying, getting lost, getting hit by a car or getting into a fight.

 

Inoculations

 

Vaccinations help prevent the spread of fatal and debilitating diseases. Prevention can assure quality of life for your pet at a lower cost than treating the disease.

 

Our Recommended Vaccinations

 

Vaccine Schedules/Titer Testing

 

Schedules are determined by your pet’s age and the risk of exposure. Our doctors will discuss your risk/exposure factor and set a personalized schedule for your pet. Additionally, we offer Vaccine Titer Testing to clients who wish to ensure that their pet has the proper level of protection with the least amount of vaccine.

 

Dermatology

 

We will perform skin and ear cytology or skin scrapings to help in diagnosing your pets skin condition for appropriate treatments. Skin and ear bacterial or fungal culture and skin biopsy may also be indicated. Most common skin diseases are caused by infections, (parasites/bacteria/fungus) allergy, or endocrinopthy.

 

Senior Wellness Care

 

Our pets age more rapidly than we do, and as they grow older, they need more frequent physical examinations. When the disease process is caught early, the treatment is often more effective, less expensive and can increase your pet’s life expectancy. Our program is designed not only to extend the longevity but also the quality of your pet’s life.

Micro-Chipping

 

Home Again LogoA Microchip may be the most important gift you ever give your pet.
Micro-chipping provides the peace of mind that you've given your pet the permanent, lifetime ID it needs for the best chance to come home.

Here's what you should know about microchips. They:

 

  • Do not hurt your pet -- no more discomfort than a vaccination.
  • Do not require surgery -- a simple, one-time insertion with a syringe.
  • Do not move out of place -- design keeps the microchip from moving.

 

Losing a pet may be easier than you realize.

 

  • Your pet digs under a fence or bolts through an invisible fence and escapes.
  • Thunderstorms of fireworks cause your pet to panic and flee.
  • While traveling, your pet wanders away into unfamiliar territory.
  • An emergency occurs and your pet gets lost in the turmoil.
  • A handyman accidentally lets your pet out.
  • Someone steals your pet while unattended.

 

A microchip is more reliable than a collar and a tag because there is no chance it will fall off. The microchip is a permanent ID that links your pet to you.

Here is how it works:

 

  • After the microchip is inserted, you simply enroll your pets ID code along with your contact information. Enrolling is what makes it possible for your pet to be positively identified.
  • If your pet is taken to an animal shelter or clinic, the staff will scan the microchip to read its unique ID code.
  • The staff will then call the appropriate registry with your pets identified ID code.
  • As soon as your contact information is retrieved, you will be contacted and arrangements will be made to reunite you with your pet.
