We recommend a complete physical examination for your pet at least once a year, though more frequent exams may be essential as your pet gets older. During this important visit, our doctors will spend focused time with you and your pet, doing a thorough physical exam, talking with you about your pet’s health and behavior, and addressing your questions. Routine examinations give your veterinarian an opportunity to develop a picture of your pet's overall health. Examinations are also essential in spotting problems before they become serious health issues.
Vaccines are one of the most important aspects of preventive health care. They are a safe and effective way to protect your pet from potentially life-threatening infectious diseases. At your pet’s wellness exam, our staff can assist you in deciding which preventative measures are best for your pet.
Canine Vaccines are useful in preventing: distemper, parvovirus, kennel cough, rabies, Lyme disease and other diseases in your dog.
Feline Vaccines are useful in preventing: leukemia, calicivirus, rhinovirus, rabies and panleukopenia in cats.
Internal medicine involves conditions affecting the internal organs such as liver, kidneys, spleen, digestive, urinary tracts, nervous system and the glandular tissue like pancreas, thyroid and adrenal glands. Our practice provides variety of diagnostic and therapeutic services to treat such medical problems as well as conditions affecting the ears, eyes, and skin.
Each year, millions of pets go missing and many never make it back to their homes. It is heartbreaking and sad to lose a pet. Implanting a microchip in your pet is a simple, painless way to avoid this tragedy. Microchips are a safe, permanent means of identification. Each microchip has a unique number. If a lost pet is found and a microchip is scanned at a hospital or a shelter, the registry is called and the owner can be contacted.
We recommend testing for heartworm infection before beginning preventive medication and at regular intervals after your dog is on medication. Many dogs infected with heartworm may not show any evidence of infection in the early stages of the disease. Giving heartworm preventive medication unknowingly to a heartworm dog may result in serious or even fatal complications. The heartworm test only takes a couple drops of blood. If the test returns with a negative result your pet will go on a monthly preventive treatment. In case of positive result, treatment options are available to discuss with the veterinarian.
