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 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.
All air-driven instruments and dental x-rays have expanded our capabilities to perform high quality dental procedures for your pet.
Automated film processing and a 300 MA x-ray machine.
Special Diagnostic Services
Preventative health care
We feel strongly that every pet should be examined at least once a
year. The time and effort invested in your pet's health has rewards for
both pets and owners. Our recommendations are designed specifically for
your pet and include: An annual physical exam including a dental exam, internal parasite
testing; heartworm and flea control; microchipping; spay or neuter;
and specialized blood tests for all life stages.
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.
We carry Hill's and Royal Canin's prescription diets and treats. We also carry preventative dental products; Adaptil and Feliway pheromone 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 your 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.
Prescriptions are filled during your office visit from our clinic pharmacy. If you want to know the best and safest products for keeping your pets flea and tick free, we have sound advice from trained staff. We also have our clinic online store available.
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, one each year with your pet's annual visit. 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.
