Preventative Health Care
We feel strongly that every pet should be examined at least once a year. Every exam includes a dental checkup to be sure your pet's teeth and gums stay healthy. The time and effort invested in your pets' health has rewards for both pets and owners. Our recommendations are designed specifically for your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; a dental checkup to be sure your pet's teeth and gums stay healthy; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; micro-chipping; spay and neuter; and specialized blood tests for all life stages.
Patient Record Reminder System
Our computerized patient record-keeping system allows us to track your pet's health needs: vaccinations, heartworm exams, fecal exams, dental exams, and medications.
We carry Hill's and Royal Canin's products. We also carry a variety of animal care and nutritional products. We sell Gentle Leaders and will gladly teach our clients how to use them.
Placing a microchip into your pet gives it a form of permanent identification that cannot be altered. All animal shelters and most veterinary clinics have equipment that will scan for a chip and give you a much better chance of being reunited with you pet should he/she become lost. The procedure is not very different than giving a routine vaccine. We find that micro chipping at the time of spay or neuter is the easiest and most convenient, but it can be done at any time.
Pain ManagementManaging your pet's pain is something we take very seriously. Pets feel pain and discomfort for the same reasons and under the same circumstances as people do. The effects of pain can actually delay the healing process. That is why we use a variety of methods and medications to control your pet's pain. These include a combination of oral and injectable medications for all routine surgeries, and nerve blocks for declaws and tooth extractions.
Prescriptions are filled during your office visit from our fully stocked pharmacy. Our staff also understands the proper use of everything we sell. If you want to know the best and safest products for keeping your pets flea and tick-free, we have sound advice from trained staff, that you can't get at the grocery or discount store or online.
Our practice follows the guidelines of the American Animal Hospital Association, and considers each patient individually. For many diseases, we are now recommending revaccination every three years, instead of the idea that everything was given every year. We will be happy to discuss these new ideas and recommendations with you at your annual visit.
We are equipped for various types of fracture repair, cruciate ligament injuries, canine hip dysplasia screening, juvenile pubic symphysiodesis (JPS surgery), femoral head ostectomy, and luxating patella surgeries.
