Over the years pets have become more than just animals; they are members of our families. Proper care is essential for our dogs and cats to live a long and happy life. We recommend annual examinations to help detect medical conditions that may devastating effects on your companion if left alone. Most of the time pets are just fine, but when there is a problem the veterinarian is the person to see.
Booster Shots & Yearly Vaccinations
Puppies and kittens can be quite a handful! In addition to any training you give them, they need several sets of vaccinations to protect them from harmful diseases. Testing for intestinal parasites (a worm check) is necessary for your safety and that of your pet. We can treat most parasites that your new puppy or kitten may have very easily. You can look at our Puppy Visits and Kitten visits pages for a more detailed schedule of visits.
Annual visits, while sometimes difficult to plan, are very important for your pet. During this visit you can discuss any concerns you have with the veterinarian while your pet is given a physical exam. Yearly testing for intestinal parasites is must to keep your pet and family safe. Annual testing for heartworms makes sure our dog patients have not contracted these parasites. Our veterinarians will recommend vaccinations, heartworm prevention and flea/tick control according to your pets needs.
Surgical procedures such as spaying and neutering are important subjects and our doctors will happily discuss it with you. We recommend Getting your pet “fixed” between 4 & 6 months of age. At times, surgical procedures may be the best course of action for treatment of your pet. Our veterinarians are trained and we have the facilities to handle this in most situations. Our doctors regularly perform spays and neuters as well as more involved surgeries when the need arises. If the doctors feel the problem is beyond their capabilities, we will refer you to a qualified specialist.
It is possible for your pet to get sick even with excellent preventive care. Our staff is here to help when that happens. If your pet becomes ill, we have an in-house lab to help diagnose the problem so that the doctor can inform you of the best course of action for the situation. For your convince, the in-house pharmacy is stocked with most medications prescribed by our doctor. At times, radiographs (X-Rays) or an ultrasound may be necessary and we can do this as well. We can refer you to a specialist when the need arises.
