Health teeth and gums contribute to the overall health of your pet. We provide complete dental examinations, charting of periodontal pockets and disease, dental x-rays, scaling, polishing, as well as periodontal surgery procedures. We believe preventative care is the best approach for long term oral health. Periodontal disease is an infection that can cause pain, heart and kidney disease as well as loss of teeth. We welcome the opportunity to discuss things you can do at home to help keep your pet’s mouth healthy.
Pet Health Center Services
We are your pet’s family doctor. We take the time to know you and your pet and make the best recommendations for medical care.
Wellness Examinations and Immunizations
Often your pet’s health problems can go unnoticed because your pet cannot tell you that he doesn’t feel well. Cats are especially good at masking their illness until it is severe. By the time noticeable symptoms appear, the condition may be too difficult or costly to diagnose and treat. There are many conditions, which if diagnosed early, can be completely reversed or controlled for extended periods of time.
At least once and perhaps twice a year, once your pet has reached senior status, your pet needs a complete physical examination. Remember, your pet’s lifespan is shorter than ours. A lot can happen in 12 months.
Due to the many recent discoveries and innovations in veterinary medicine, your pet can be protected from most major diseases. Today, many immunizations and preventive treatments are available that did not exist just a few years ago. Vaccination protocols are individualized for your pet. We take into account the exposures and risks your pet faces in your community and where you travel and other lifestyle issues.
Complete Medical Services
In addition to routine medical care, we can provide diagnostic, surgical and dental services for your pet.
Our pet health care is well-equipped to perform most minor and major surgical procedures from spays and neuters to more complicated emergency, orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries.
Some of the more advanced orthopedic procedures done at our pet health care include fracture repair, ruptured (ligaments) crucibles, and patella (kneecap) luxuriation. For more complicated procedures, we may refer you and your pet to one of the many expert specialty centers in the area.
Prior to surgery, each patient receives a thorough physical examination to identify any existing medical conditions that might endanger your pet’s health. Because not all problems can be detected on examination, we also perform pre-anesthetic blood testing. These tests not only give us a more complete picture of your pet’s health but also allow us to tailor an anesthetic regime that is specific for your pet.
Pain management is a part of our pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative anesthetic and medical protocol. All surgical patients, including those undergoing routine procedures such as ovariohysterectomy (spay) or castrations (neuters), receive pain control medications. We urge you to discuss operative pain management options with our staff.
Dental procedures are perform under anesthesia and therefore pre-anesthetic testing is required.
Radiographs (x-rays) are extremely helpful for diagnosing medical and surgical problems. We perform diagnostic radiographs here at our clinic. We may refer you and your pet to a specialty clinic if ultrasound is needed.
Diagnostic Laboratory Testing
Our clinic laboratory provides fast and accurate information that is critical to the sick or injured pet. With our modern, in-house laboratory diagnostic equipment animals receive appropriate treatment immediately after arriving at the pet health care.
We are equipped to perform complete blood counts and chemistry profiles, urinalysis and parasitology screening on site. We also perform pre-anesthetic blood testing. This important procedure can greatly reduce the risks associated with anesthesia and surgery. We use a well know professional laboratory to perform additional testing when needed.
We carry a wide variety of veterinary medications and prescription diets for your convenience to allow most prescriptions to be dispensed before you leave the clinic. Refills and special orders of medication and prescription diets will be filled by Ventricle.
