Contact your family veterinarian prior to an emergency and determine if your veterinarian sees after-hours emergencies. In the event that your family veterinarian does not see emergencies at night or on the weekends, they can likely make a recommendation as to where you can take pets during an unforeseen situation.
A few signs your pet may be in pain can include: More time spent sleeping, inappropriate urination or defication, less interest in playing, jumping, climbing etc, reduced appetite, limping or lameness, self-mutilation, vocalization and change in attitude. If you notice any of these symptoms or conditions in your pet give us a call so we can let you know which treatment options are available.
Yes! If your pet has bad breath, visible tartar or loose/missing teeth, they probably need a dental cleaning. Because dental health varies widely depending on your pets breed, size, and age, we recommend that you bring your pet in for a consultation.
Many of the same health issues that strike humans also afflict our pets. For instance, your dog or cat may display vision problems, cognitive dysfunction, kidney issues, and cancer. We offer senior pet wellness exams at a discounted price.
Wellness programs allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions early when they are easier to treat and manage. We recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit us once a year. Puppies, kittens, service pets, and pets with health issues or illness need more frequent checkups. Call us today to schedule your pet's wellness exam.
A pet that is spayed or neutered is less likely to exhibit aggressive behaviors and is more likely to live longer than those pets that remain intact. Studies have shown that pets that are spayed or neutered are less likely to die from trauma or infectious diseases.
