Ensure your new family member grows up to be as healthy and happy possible by helping them to build a strong immune system and Initiating heartworm, flea/tick prevention, and intestinal parasite prevention.

Help your adult pet maintain their health with a bi-annual visit to the veterinarian. This will help them maintain a strong immune system from regional disease exposures and continue an effective parasite prevention program. A regular visit to the vet will also help us catch, treat, and monitor any health conditions that arise as they grow older.
Pets above the age of 7 require special attention to ensure they maintain their health in their later stage of life. During this time, pets are especially vulnerable to age-related conditions and should see a veterinarian at least twice a year to receive a comprehensive check-up of their physical and cognitive health, as well as consultation on any changes in diet or routine required to optimize their quality and length of life.

Much like people, dogs and cats need their teeth checked yearly. On average a dog has 42 permanent teeth and a cat has 30. A thorough exam performed by a veterinarian will be able to assess plaque, tartar, gingivitis, and/or periodontal disease in your pet’s mouth. Periodontal disease occurs when there is bacteria present in the plaque. This bacteria can easily be transferred throughout your pet’s entire body. The transferring of bacteria can lead to kidney, liver, and even heart disease. Some breeds specific dogs require more frequent cleanings than others.
Dental cleanings are day procedures, but do require anesthesia. A chemistry panel is always recommended when a pet will be receiving anesthesia. While under anesthesia, heart rate monitoring is continuous. Our ultrasonic dental equipment will scale your pet’s teeth and gum line. Then a good polish follows. After the procedure is complete, some pets may receive antibiotics and pain medication.
