OUR SERVICES

Out pets can’t always tell us what’s wrong or what hurts. We have several diagnostic tools at our disposal to help us find the answers.

Your pet is an important part of your family, and when he or she is ill, you want the best medical care available.

The veterinarians and staff at our clinic are ready to provide your pet with cutting edge veterinary medical care. From wellness exams and vaccines to advanced diagnostics and complex surgical procedures, your dog, cat or ferret will receive high quality care at our hospital.

DENTAL

Dental Care For Your Pet is Very Important

Brushing your dog or cat’s teeth is often not a every easy task. Tartar/plaque builds up and traps bacteria in the gum line. The gingivitis that ensues can cause issues with the liver and kidneys, plus deteriorating health of the individual teeth. But what we really notice is the bad breath that accompanies it when we get those puppy kisses.

 

A dental exam is performed with the yearly physical. At that time we can decide what is needed in your pet’s case to promote the best dental health. In some cases at home care is all that is needed ( routine brushing/rinses, dental chews, water additives ). In other cases general anesthesia is required for a full periodontal exam and treatment.

VACCINATIONS

Vaccinations Are Important For Your Pet to Prevent Disease.

Many of these disease are deadly, fortunately many are rarely seen due to our access to these life-saving vaccines. But if pet owners decline to vaccinate their pets, we will see a resurgence of these deadly diseases that will affect our pet populations, especially as we see more and more pet socialization (boarding, grooming, dog parks and doggie day care) and travel. Our vaccine recommendations are given on a case to case basis depending on your lifestyle and your pets chance of exposure.

Most of these conditions in their early stages will not have signs that a pet owner may see at home, but may be identified by a veterinary professional.
