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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
