Exams

Preventative exams provide for early diagnosis and prompt action that may solve problems before they become serious.

Common sections of your pet's annual health exam include:

History: 

We'll ask you questions about your pet's health history to include in its medical record along with its current temperature, pulse, respiration rate, and body weight.

Nose:

We'll check your pet's nose for abnormal discharges as well as changes in color, texture, moisture, or shape.

Ears:

We'll check your pet's ear canals to look for inflammation or other signs of problems.

Eyes:

We'll examine the eyes looking for symptoms suggesting anemia, infections, glaucoma, and eye ulcers.

Teeth and Mouth:

We'll check your pet's gums, teeth, tongue, and palate for abnormalities.

Heart and Lungs:

We'll use a stethoscope to listen to your pet's heart and lungs. Early heart disease is often recognized during an annual health exam.

Reproduction:

We'll discuss spaying and neutering with you to help avoid unwanted pet pregnancies to help control pet overpopulation.

Skin and Coat:

We'll examine the coat and skin condition to detect other health problems. We'll also check for fleas, ticks, and other external parasites, tumors, and wounds.

Touch:

We'll use our hands and fingers to feel the abdomen to assess the condition of internal organs and to look for any irregularities.  We'll also note the condition of the joints, muscles, skin, lymph nodes, and hair.

Lab Work

We have the ability to run routine lab tests in-house and utilize the services of an area laboratory for more demanding tests.

Surgery

All patients undergoing anesthesia are continually monitored using sophisticated equipment as well as "hands-on."

Spaying/Neutering

There are many solid health reasons for spaying and neutering our pets. Early spaying prevents mammary cancer and uterine disease. Both of these conditions can be fatal. Neutering males reduces the incidence of prostate and testicular disease.

Preventing unwanted litters is another common reason veterinarians recommend spaying both cats and dogs at six to 12 months of age, preferably before the first heat.

Radiology

Radiology is a diagnostic tool to identify many possible health conditions.  We are equipped with all the equipment necessary to take x-rays.

Dentistry

Periodontal disease is the number one dental problem in dogs and cats. Abscessed teeth or periodontal disease can affect other parts of the body. In dogs and cats, they can cause heart and kidney disease. A regular dental checkup can help prevent serious problems and keep your pet healthy. Pet teeth cleaning includes use of a short-lasting anesthetic that allows for gum line probes, removal of tartar and tooth polishing.

Vaccinations

Immunizing your pet against disease is one of the best tools of preventive medicine. "One size does not fit all." Your pets lifestyle determines what vaccines are necessary. Please make an individual pet appointment and we will tailor a vaccine protocol specific to your pet's needs and lifestyle. Is your pet an "outdoor enthusiast", or an "indoor pampered family member", or something in between? Your pet deserves to be treated like the individual that he or she is.

Just because a vaccine is available does not mean it is appropriate for your pet. Let us help you with these very important decisions impacting your pet's health, protection, immunity, and well-being. It is also very important to take into consideration the changing needs as your pet ages and their health status changes. We always recommend annual exams to assess these needs and develop an individual plan specific for your pet.

Hospitalization

We provide constant monitoring, fluids, and medications as appropriate to each pet depending on their individual needs.

Micro-Chipping

The micro-chip implant procedure is simple and doesn't require any anesthesia. Your pet simply gets an injection just under the loose skin between the shoulder blades; it's a lot like getting vaccinated. Most animals don't react at all. The chip is made out of an inert, biocompatible substance, which means it won't cause an allergic reaction in your pet.
