We put your pet’s health first.
We know that each pet has different needs, and that’s why we make sure to give each and every animal individualized care. We’ll be with you through all stages of your pet’s life to ensure that they are happy, healthy, and on the right path to staying that way. Scroll down to learn more about the services we’re able to offer your pet.
We don’t just see cats and dogs! We also see exotic pets — pocket pets, rabbits, birds, and chickens! If you have specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
We provide a wide range of care.
We provide care for cats, dogs, birds, exotics, and pocket pets!
We’ll be there for all stages of your pet’s life. From their first visit—when we set up a proper vaccine schedule, diet, and plan for their ongoing care with you—to their later years, we’ll be there. These visits are so important to us because they help us create a baseline for your pet’s health. This way, we’ll always know when something isn’t right with their health.
During our wellness exams, we’ll do a full nose-to-tail examination to make sure everything is looking good. This includes checks on the eye, mouth, ears, and overall health.
It’s important to ensure that your pet is on a proper vaccination schedule, and this will be addressed during wellness visits to ensure that your pet is protected from harmful diseases and parasites.
This is also a good time to make sure your pet is taking proper parasite prevention, which is essential. Ridding a pet and home of fleas can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars and can be nearly impossible to get rid of as flea eggs can survive for a very long time. So, preventing flea infestations is both the best and most cost-effective measure. Similarly, ticks can carry a number of different diseases that affect dogs and cats, can be very damaging to a pet’s health, and can be very costly to treat. We’ll make sure your pet is protected!
Low-Cost Spay & Neuter
Our low-cost program was created by passionate individuals wishing to address the needs of pet owners looking to spay and neuter their pets at affordable prices while maintaining the highest quality of pet health care.
Male and female cats and dogs can all benefit in the long term from being spayed or neutered. Some of the health and behavioral issues eliminated by this procedure include:
- Eliminates the heat cycle and spotting in females
- Reduces the risk of mammary tumors in females
- Prevents uterine infections and cancers in females
- Reduces roaming tendencies in males and females
- Reduces aggressive behavior in males
- Eliminates or reduces mounting and marking/spray behaviors in males
- Prevents testicular tumors in males
- Reduces the risk of prostate problems in males
Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgery includes surgeries not associated with bone. Examples of soft tissue surgeries and their benefits are listed below.
Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed at our clinic is the removal of masses or lumps on animals. Most of these masses or lumps, once removed and tested, are benign (non-harmful); however, occasionally, they are more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump are necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous. Lacerations are also common in pets and suturing will reduce the chance of infection, improve healing time, and reduce scarring.
Many breeds of dogs are susceptible to ear infections. Surgical treatment on ears improves airflow into the ear canal and can reduce the occurrence of ear infections. Tearing in your pet’s eyes can mean an infection is present or it may be a sign the cornea (outer layer of the eye itself) has been damaged. A damaged cornea may require soft tissue surgery to allow the cornea to heal faster with less scarring. Less scarring will improve the ability of your pet to see. In some animals, the cornea (outer layer of the eye) may be damaged by the eyelid hairs surrounding the eye. Surgical intervention involving the eyelid improves the comfort of these animals. It also reduces the chances of corneal scarring and enhances the animal’s vision in the long term.
Exotic Pet Care
We happily provide wellness care for pocket pets, rabbits, birds, and chickens in addition to cats and dogs. Contact us for more information!
Finding the right treatment plan doesn’t mean choosing either alternative or traditional types of therapy. Using both, we can tailor a treatment plan that’s specific to your pet’s needs.
Alternative therapies for pets can provide the following benefits:
- Can work synergistically with traditional treatments to get even better results
- Gives us another avenue to use when other options have been exhausted
- Can improve quality of life for ill or aging pets
- Allows options when traditional treatments or surgeries are off the table
- Provides a viable option to therapies with undesirable side effects
- May be used to strengthen the immune system
- Can decrease stress in our patients during times of hospitalization or illness
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have oral disease by the age of three. It is the most frequently diagnosed health problem in pets. Common signs of oral disease include tartar buildup, red and swollen gums, bad breath, changes in eating or chewing habits, pawing at the face, and generalized depression.
A veterinarian should evaluate your pet’s dental health at least once a year. We recommend this because bacteria and food debris accumulates around a pet’s teeth and, if left unchecked, will lead to deterioration of the soft tissue and bone surrounding the teeth. This decay results in irreversible periodontal disease and even tooth loss.
There are other reasons why you should pay close attention to your pet’s dental health. Dental disease can affect other organs in the body: bacteria in the mouth can get into the bloodstream and may cause serious kidney infections, liver disease, lung disease, and heart valve disease. Oral disease can also indicate that another disease process is occurring elsewhere in a pet’s body. A thorough physical exam combined with appropriate laboratory work can determine if this is the case.
We can recommend and demonstrate preventative measures you can begin at home. Our wellness program emphasizes and explains how you can avoid costly dental procedures with your pet in the future.
