Physical Exam, Vaccines, and Preventive Care
A complete physical examination is the key ingredient in preventing disease or illnesses. It is the first and most essential step you as an owner will take to ensure your pet’s well-being and long-term health. Dogs and cats age much faster than people, so important changes in your pet’s health could happen very quickly. A complete physical examination allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions very early, while they’re much easier to treat or manage. Often, we can help prevent diseases entirely, simply by making certain your furry friend has received appropriate vaccinations and preventives. We recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit us at least once a year. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with medical issues or illnesses require more frequent examinations. Each physical examination includes one-on-one time with your pet’s doctor to review your pet’s health. Call us today to schedule your pet’s complete physical examination.

Does your best friend have smelly breath? Regardless of what many pet owners may believe, smelly breath isn’t just an annoyance – it’s actually an indication of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. With time, bacteria lead to plaque and tartar accumulation on your pet’s teeth. The outcome is foul breath, reddened gum tissue, and other common indications of dental disease. As dental disease progresses, other indicators may include drooling, discomfort while chewing, and loose or missing teeth. Regardless of if you’re using treats and chews to assist in controlling tartar, these are often not enough to keep dental disease in check. Ask us regarding the ideal ways to control plaque and safeguard your four-legged friend from dental disease. Dental hygiene is an essential part of your pet’s health, mainly because dental disease is often connected with various other serious health conditions which include heart disease and kidney disease. But exactly how do you know if your pet has a healthy mouth? Allow us to examine your pet’s gums and teeth to help you decide if there are any dental issues you should be aware of.
Radiography is a useful diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As we constantly strive to provide the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are very happy to offer radiology solutions as a way of delivering proper care to our patients.
A radiograph (oftentimes referred to as an x-ray) is a type of photograph that can look within the body and uncover information that may not be recognizable from the outside. Radiography enables us to evaluate nearly any organ in the body, such as the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, along with the bones. Radiography is pain-free, safe, and absolutely non-invasive, and it utilizes only very low amounts of radiation. Since the degree of radiation exposure necessary to perform radiography is quite low, even pregnant females and really young pets can undergo radiography. Tumors, based on their size and placement, may also occasionally be detected utilizing radiography. Radiography could also be used to identify bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, specific spinal cord diseases, along with a number of other issues.
