We believe annual wellness care is imperative to keeping your pet happy and healthy! Your pet’s health is important and preventive care is necessary. We recommend wellness exams, keeping your pets on a vaccination schedule, and working with us on all facets of wellness care.
It is difficult to see your pet in pain or suffering and not know what’s wrong. Our team provides state-of-the-art in-house diagnostics to help us learn what’s wrong and provide an accurate diagnosis. A quicker diagnosis leads to quicker treatment! We do diagnostic testing both in-house and with an outside lab so we can provide results quickly and accurately.
You may not always be able to tell if your pet has parasites. Fleas can hide under your pet’s fur, and some ticks are very tiny (only the size of a pinhead), so they are very difficult to find. Intestinal parasites like roundworms can cause diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, and other problems, but some infected pets don’t show any signs at all.
Microchips are tiny electronic devices, about the size of a grain of rice, that use radio waves to transmit identification information. Pet microchips store unique identification numbers that show once the chip is scanned. This number can be reported to the appropriate microchip company where the owners’ contact information is stored. Microchips are made of a material that is compatible with body tissues, so rejection and infection at the site of microchip injection are rare.
Nutrition plays a critical role in the overall health and well-being of your pet. Your pet’s nutritional needs change with age and activity level. Specially formulated diets can assist in the management of various medical conditions like kidney disease, diabetes, heart disease. Work closely with your veterinarian to find the right food and the right intake amount for your pet.
We work closely with a local nutritionist here in Clayton. We can refer you and your pet to have a virtual nutrition consultation after an exam and initial workup with our hospital.
