Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Canine and Feline Wellness Programs:
Including all of your pet's annual vaccinations. We recommend annual wellness exams, blood testing and vaccinations to keep your dog or cat healthy and to diagnose and treat problems before they become serious. We also recommend annual and semi-annual testing for various parasites, along with year round parasite prevention.
When your pet reaches 7 years of age they are considered a senior. Pets are living longer thanks to advances in veterinary care, diagnostics, and earlier intervention. But the key to enjoying our "senior" pets lies not only in extending their life span, but in helping them enjoy their later years to the fullest.
Like people, dogs and cats are prone to debilitating ailments as they age. Kidney failure, heart disease, arthritis, dental disease, cancer, and cognitive dysfunction can occur during the normal aging process. In the past, because many diseases weren't diagnosed until advanced stages, veterinarians could do little more than make a pet's golden years a little more comfortable by treating the symptoms of age-related illness. If the pet was lucky, the problems would progress slowly. Most pet owners just accepted the fact that their four-legged friends were going to live a relatively short life, get old, and pass on.
Thanks to technical advancements in modern veterinary medicine, surgery, diagnostics and nutrition, not only do pets live longer but their quality of life has increased dramatically as well.
Spay and Neutering
Spaying or neutering your pet is one of the ways to keep your pet healthy. It is also the responsible way to keep the pet population down and reduce the number of unwanted pets in shelters.
We feel strongly that these services are necessary and we are doing our part to help make them affordable.
Our experienced veterinarian provides many surgical services at our clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome, we occasionally refer them to specialists (board-certified veterinary surgeons) to perform complex operations when advanced equipment or training will be beneficial. Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam and preanesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
We make every effort to make anesthesia as safe as possible, especially for our older or higher risk patients. We offer pre-anesthetic bloodwork profiles that can be done in house the same day as the surgical procedure. During anesthesia we monitor multiple vital signs including but not limited to heart rate, respiratory rate, SpO2, CO2, and blood pressure. While your pet is asleep a technician is assigned to monitoring visible vital signs as well the readings on the electronic monitor to make sure you pet is not only safe, but also as pain free as possible during all procedures.
While it may be the hardest decision you have to make, the quality of your pet's life should be the most important issue. We offer quality of life and pain assessment exams to help in making a euthanasia decision.
We offer on site state of the art digital radiographs (x-rays). Digital radiographs allow us to take sharper images that can be enlarged as well as lighten and darken to best visualize different body parts on a single image. This allows us to get diagnostic images with fewer shots reducing your pet's exposure to radiation as well as saving you money. We also have digital dental radiography to improve our ability to diagnose and treat dental disease. Images created in a digital format also make it much easier to make copies of your pet's x-rays for referral or travel if needed.
We offer a wide range of dental services starting with demonstrations and tips for at home care. Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery.
Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
Permanent Identification and Pet ID Cards
We offer microchip identification. And now through our friends at VetScene, we're offering Pet Health ID Cards with your annual vaccinations.
We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
Individualized Flea Control Programs
We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.
We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.
We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression.
