Small Animal Services:
Examinations: Our doctors require an examination once a year for administration of immunizations and other preventions. We recommend a physical examination twice a year on all normal pets. Because pets age seven years for every one of humans, having a physical examination every six months for a pet is like a human having an exam every 3 years. Pets cannot talk to communicate how they feel so they are on a faster path toward illness than humans.
Blood Screen: We recommend a Wellness Blood Screen for your pet. This test will help us assess internal organ functions that cannot be determined based on physical examination alone. Indications of the internal organ functions such as the liver and kidney functions as well as the presence of infection or anemia can be determined.
Heartworm Test: This test will determine if adult, female heartworms are present in your pet’s heart, which will help us determine if your pet has heartworm prior to the administration of heartworm prevention.
Dental Cleaning: A dental cleaning is an important part of general healthcare maintenance for your pet. The teeth are a potential source for life threatening infectious to the heart, liver, and kidney if periodontal disease develops. Pet’s teeth are very similar to human’s teeth and dental disease is very common in pets. Routine dental care is recommended because maintaining good oral health will greatly improve the health and breath of your pet. Teeth cleaning procedures completed at our hospital, followed by recommended home care treatments, are the best way to ensure the long life of your pet’s teeth.
Spay: A spay is the procedure performed on a female pet to prevent reproduction. In this procedure the uterus and ovaries are removed and it is therefore termed an ovariohysterectomy. Recommend 4 to 6 months of age.
Neuter: Neutering the male pet is the surgical procedure that prevents your pet from reproducing. This procedure removes both testicles, which produce sperm as well as testosterone. By reducing the amount of testosterone, your pet will be less likely to fight, less likely to stray, and less frustrated by pheromones. On average your pet will have a longer life with reduced disease. Recommend 4 to 6 months of age.
