Preventing a disease before it occurs is an easy way to ensure a long and healthy life for your pet. During routine wellness care checkups, your veterinarian will assess:
The steps you take to give your new puppy or kitten the care they need at a young age will have long-term health benefits as they become adults. Regular checkups, vaccinations, and parasite testing are all key to ensuring the health for your new family member. Our talented and trained staff can also advise new pet parents on the training, grooming, exercise, and nutritional needs of your new pet as well as the spaying and neutering process, pet health insurance options, and suggested preventative healthcare. New pets come with many questions… and we are here to help!
We recommend all pets over the age of 7 visit us at least twice a year. Senior pets have special health requirements and can significantly benefit from visiting the veterinarian more often. These regular visits will allow us to catch any age-associated conditions early and develop a treatment plan to maintain your pet’s quality of life. During your visit, we will check the health of your pet’s teeth and gums, heart, liver, kidney, endocrine system, and any other parts of the body at risk of age-related conditions. Your aging pet may also be experiencing changes in behavior related to their cognitive function, which can be addressed with adjustments to your pet’s diet and the introduction of supplement to improve your pet’s mental sharpness. Watching your pet get older is never easy but with regular visits to the vet and the right medical plan, we can work together to keep your senior pet healthier and happier than ever.
Dental disease is one of the most common and yet ignored health issues in pets. By three years old, most pets have some extent of periodontal disease. This is a result of plaque formation and resulting bacteria infecting the gum line. If plaque, which is a sticky substance containing millions of bacteria forms, is not removed often it can harden into tartar. If left unaddressed, tartar leads to the degradation of the gum tissue and potential tooth loss. Periodontal disease can also cause damage to vital organs like the heart, liver, lings, and kidneys. When it comes to dental health, most pet parents don’t realize the severity of the issue until the disease has advanced significantly. It is therefore very important to have annual oral health care assessments and speak to your veterinarian about an at-home dental healthcare routine.
Microchipping your pet is one of the best ways to ensure a 100% accurate identification in case you are ever separated. We offer microchipping during a normal office visit, which does NOT require anesthetic to be injected.
