Wellness and Vaccination services

Wellness Exam

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. 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 with our doctors.

Medical Services

Medical Assessment Exam

If your pet needs medical assistance, you can feel confident turning to us. Our staff and facilities are equipped to handle a wide variety of medical conditions. To ensure a proper diagnosis, we need to examine your pet. We begin a medical assessment by looking at your pet's eyes, ears, and skin and checking his or her cardiovascular, neurological, gastrointestinal, and skeletal systems for any abnormalities. We will draw blood and/or urine for testing as necessary, to check your pet's kidneys, liver, pancreas, and endocrine system, including the thyroid and adrenal glands. Based on your pet's condition, we may recommend further diagnostic tests, such as radiography (x-rays), or ultrasound. If you're concerned that something may be wrong with your pet, please call us to schedule a medical assessment. Depending on the symptoms, we may ask you to bring in your pet right away.

Cardiology (Heart)

Although heart problems are found more often in older pets, these conditions can affect pets at any age. Heart disease is usually a life-threatening condition, but early diagnosis and appropriate therapy can extend your pet's life. Call us if your pet starts breathing rapidly or coughing, loses his or her appetite, tires easily, seems weak, or has trouble exercising. We can discover many heart problems during a physical exam.

Endocrinology (Hormones)

Identifying endocrine problems as early as possible is important in dogs and cats. These serious, potentially life-threatening conditions are much more manageable when caught early, allowing us to begin proper treatment.There are several common endocrine disorders found in dogs and cats: Diabetes mellitus, Hypoyroidism, which is often diagnosed in dogs,Hyperthyroidism, which frequently affects cats, Addison's disease (hypoadrenocorticism) and Cushing's disease (hyperadrenocorticism) can affect both species. Contact us if your pet begins panting excessively, develops any skin issues (such as hair loss or dull coat), or shows any changes in behaviour, energy levels, appetite, weight, water consumption, or urination.

Dermatology (Skin)

Skin problems are common in dogs and cats and can be caused by hormonal disorders, allergies, infections, or parasites such as fleas and mites. We can often diagnose a skin problem by simply examining your pet. Depending on your pet's symptoms and the results of our physical exam, we may draw blood and or urine for analysis, do skin scrapings, or biopsies. Contact us if you notice your dog or cat scratching excessively or if he or she develops any bare patches, scabs, scaling, redness, inflammation, lumps, or bumps.

Surgical Services

Our experienced veterinarians provide many surgical services at the clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.

Spaying

Spaying your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents female animals from becoming pregnant and reproducing, can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. By spaying your female pet, you're protecting her against potentially deadly diseases, including bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer.

Neutering

Neutering your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents male animals from reproducing, can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. By neutering your pet, you're reducing or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer.

Soft Tissue Surgeries

We perform many types of soft tissue surgeries at the clinic including tumour removals and biopsies, gastrotomy, enterotomy, foreign body removal, cystotomy/urinary bladder surgery, stone removal, gall bladder surgeries, splenectomy, mastectomy (mammary tumor removal) and intra-abdominal tumor removal as well as oral surgery.
