Our Services

Putting your pet’s health first.
We fully understand that you maintain a busy schedule. To help accommodate you we are open 7 Days a week, and until 7:00 pm on Thursday evenings. Drop-offs can be arranged. Call us for an appointment time that is convenient for you. Park Centre Vets offers a wide range of veterinary services for pets in the following areas:
Wellness Care
Preventative care is an important part of your pet’s life. The team at Park Centre Animal Hospital wants to keep your pet on a healthy track throughout their entire life. This includes working with you to discuss their overall health, activity levels, diet, and make sure you’re equipped with the information necessary to take the absolute best care of your pet.

It’s common for health problems to go undetected for extended periods of time, so routine and preventative care is vital in catching potential health concerns early. We hope to see your pet at least once a year, with senior pets (over the age of 7) seen twice per year.

Parasite Control
Fleas and ticks are not only a source of irritation to your pet, but they can also harbor disease and adversely affect your pet’s health. Heartworm is a dangerous parasite that lives in the heart of dogs and cats, damages the heart muscle, and can be fatal. Luckily, these types of disease are easily prevented with proper care.

Parasites stress the animal’s entire system and can make it vulnerable to other ailments. Recent advances in parasite control allow us to minimize, or even eliminate, our pet’s risk of common internal and external parasite infections. We’ll make sure that your pet is on the right medication to protect them from these parasites and keep them feeling their absolute best.

Dietary Planning
According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 59% of cats and 54% of dogs in the United States are overweight or obese.

Every single day of your pet’s life, nutrition plays a critical role in their overall health and well-being. It’s easy to take your pet’s nutritional needs for granted, grabbing the simplest or most cost-effective food for them while at the store.

A sound diet is vital to the health of your pet at any age. Our staff can discuss the dietary requirements essential for proper weight maintenance, performance, growth, and as an aid in the treatment of some diseases at every stage of life.

Senior Care
Pets are considered seniors at the age of seven, and their needs will change as they age. The team at Park Centre Animal Hospital prefers to see senior pets at least twice a year, with blood work being checked once a year and regular teeth cleanings continuing.

Your aging pet may become more susceptible to cancer, kidney disease, heart problems, pancreatic disease, and hormonal imbalances such as thyroid conditions or diabetes. Dental disease may occur and predispose your pet to a host of other problems. Arthritic conditions cause pain and immobility and change the way your pet is able to interact with the family. Behavior changes and unexpected bad habits such as house soiling can suddenly make your beloved friend a difficult housemate.

We’ll be there to make sure that your pet’s golden years are some of their best!

Comprehensive Physical Exams
During every visit to Park Centre Animal Hospital, we’ll perform a nose-to-tail examination of your pet. Working to identify risk factors for illness and taking appropriate measures to address them is more effective than waiting until an illness develops to take action. No matter what your pet is seeing us for, we will make sure our examination looks for all indications of pain or something else that may be wrong.
Dental Care
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease.

As plaque and tartar form on teeth and under gums, bacteria collect and multiply. This creates a state of poor dental hygiene that causes foul mouth odor and is cause for concern. Eventually, gum disease will develop into more serious health problems, such as heart and kidney disease. Periodic dental prophylaxis (ultrasonic cleaning, polishing, and fluoride treatment) included in your pet’s regular health care program will help maintain good oral hygiene and prevent complications.

Part of your pet’s annual exam will include a comprehensive look at the overall health of their gums, mouth, and teeth.

Puppy and Kitten Care
Making the big decision to adopt a puppy or kitten deserves some research. What is a proper diet? What vaccinations are needed? How will you prevent illness? What training programs are indicated? Should you spay or neuter? The best all-around source of information for pets and their care is your veterinary team.

From the first visit on, we’ll make sure your new pet is on the right track. The moment your new pet comes home, be sure to schedule an appointment with us. We’ll get them on a vaccination scheduled, discuss and implement parasite prevention, and discuss a timeline for spay and neuter procedures.

Boarding
When you’re away, we’ll provide your pet with a safe, comfortable space. We provide veterinary-supervised boarding facilities for both cats and dogs. All boarders enjoy clean, bright comfortable surroundings. Like all pets under our care, our staff treats our boarders as they do their own pets. Click here to learn more.
