One of the best things you can do for your pet is to keep him or her healthy. And one of the easiest and least expensive ways to do that is by bringing in your pet for regular exams and vaccinations. Dogs and cats (and other pets) age far faster than people, so significant changes in your pet’s health can happen in a short time. Wellness programs allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions early, when they’re easier to treat or manage. Often, we can help prevent diseases entirely, just by ensuring that your pet has received appropriate vaccinations and preventives. We recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit us once a year. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with health issues or illnesses need more frequent checkups. We’ll work with you to create an individualized wellness program, including a vaccination and prevention protocol customized specifically to your pet. Call us today to schedule your pet’s wellness exam.

Pain Management and ControlThere are strong reasons to support the belief that cats and dogs feel pain similarly to people. Animals, however, tend to be less demonstrative about pain than people. Please talk to one of our veterinarians about how to recognize the signs of pain.
In addressing disease processes, the least invasive and most overlooked therapeutic modality is the impact of proper nutrition. Nutritional adjustments are used in treating heart disease, kidney, bowel, and urinary tract issues.
