Vaccines are a crucial component of your pet’s overall health. Vaccines offer pets protection from dangerous diseases they may encounter in everyday life. Each pet should receive appropriate vaccines based on their particular needs and lifestyle. We strive to customize your pet’s care to ensure that they are receiving the appropriate preventive care and treatment they need.
Same day procedures include dentals, lump removals, and feline neuters. You may generally pick up your pets after 3pm. Any pet that is spayed is typically kept overnight. In some circumstances, we may keep your pet for a longer period depending on the type of procedure and the severity of the animal’s condition.
Spaying or neutering your pets greatly reduces their risk of developing many types of cancer later in life. Spaying your animals will also reduce the chance of developing a uterine infection called a pyometra which can be a life threatening condition. It may also decrease unwanted behaviors such as spraying, aggression, or running off. Spaying and neutering your pets is also the only way to eliminate unwanted litters of puppies or kittens and placing an extra burden on animal shelters.
We generally recommend waiting until your animal is 6 months of age. We also try to spay animals prior to their first heat cycle because doing so greatly reduces their risk of developing mammary cancer.
Dentistry is important for pets because it has been shown that a healthy mouth is a precursor for a healthy body. Keeping your pet’s oral health in check can help with their overall health as well. We will examine your pet’s mouth during their annual physical exams and will recommend dental cleanings if necessary.
