Preventive Medicine/Wellness Care
We strive to prevent illness whenever possible. The time and effort invested in Wellness programs has rewards for both pets and owners. Our Wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm, flea and tick flea control; vaccination program; spay and neuter package; and specialized blood tests for all life stages.
We cover all areas of internal medicine, including: Cardiology; Ophthalmology; Neurology; Dermatology; Gastroenterology; Orthopedic surgery; Oncology; Endocrinology; among others.
We help you learn what you can do at home to prevent or reduce your pets risk of dental disease. In animals, just as for people, regular professional cleaning is also important to maintaining your pets teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic scaling to clean each tooth thoroughly above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
Behavior problems are a top cause of peoples frustration with their pets. From puppyhood or kittenhood up through our senior pets, behavior problems can develop. We can help with basic housetraining and manners, recommend trainers when needed, and help if you just have questions about your pets behavior. Our veterinarians can help determine the cause of such disorders as separation anxiety and obsessive behavior, and then develop a treatment regimen for you. Sometimes, behavior changes can be a sign of illness, as well. The earlier a behavior problem is addressed, the better (and usually quicker) the resolution. So let us know if your pet has any abnormal or problematic behavior!
For more complicated behavioral issues we offer behavioral consultation. These consults are extended visits in which we can try to identify the problems you are dealing with and try to find a resolution that is best for you and your pet. Prior to a behavioral consultation we would like you to fill out the Behavioral Consultation Form and return it to us before the visit so we can review the history and begin to formulate a plan.
