Patient Record Reminder System
Our computerized patient record-keeping system allows us to track your
pet's health needs: vaccinations, heartworm exams, fecal exams, dental
exams, and medications.
Preventative health care
We feel strongly that every pet should be examined at least once a
year. The time and effort invested in your pets' health has rewards for
both pets and owners. Our recommendations are designed specifically for
your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; a dental checkup to
be sure your pet's teeth and gums stay healthy; internal parasite
testing; heartworm and flea control; micro-chipping; spay and neuter;
and specialized blood tests for all life stages.
Our practice follows the guidelines of the American Animal Hospital
Association, and considers each patient individually. For many
diseases, we are now recommending revaccination every three years,
instead of the idea that everything was given every year. We rotate
vaccines, one each year with an annual wellness exam which lessens your
pets chances of vaccine reaction. We will be happy to discuss these new
ideas and recommendations with you at your annual visit.
Available on request, we feature a variety of veterinary diets to meet
your pet's specific nutritional needs.
We carry Hill's Prescription Diets, treats for your pet, and
preventative dental care products.
Placing a microchip into your pet gives it a form of permanent
identification that cannot be altered. All animal shelters and most
veterinary clinics have equipment that will scan for a chip and give
you a much better chance of being reunited with you pet should he/she
become lost. The procedure is not very different than giving a routine
vaccine. We find that micro chipping at the time of spay or neuter is
the easiest and most convenient, but it can be done at any time.
Managing your pet's pain is something we take very seriously. Pets feel
pain and discomfort for the same reasons and under the same
circumstances as people do. The effects of pain can actually delay the
healing process. That is why we use a variety of methods and
medications to control your pet's pain. These include a combination of
oral and injectable medications for all routine surgeries, and nerve
blocks for declaws and tooth extractions.
