2Preventative Care
Our veterinarians recommend regular wellness exams for the same reason your physician and dentist recommend them – if you can detect a problem in its early stages, it's more likely to be treated and resolved with less expense, less difficulty and better success.
As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Vaccinations, heartworm prevention and routine deworming are important components of wellness care and can prevent diseases that are not only life-threatening, but very expensive to treat.

3Dentistry
Regularly brushing your pet’s teeth and providing a healthy diet and plenty of chew toys can go long way toward keeping him or her healthy. However, even with the best of home care, many dogs and cats show signs of gum disease by the time they’re four years old. We believe that the key to management of gum disease is prevention.

During a typical dental procedure our veterinarian and veterinary technicians perform the following procedures:
  • Elimination of plaque and tartar from under the gum
  • Removal of visible plaque and tartar from the teeth
  • Probing of dental sockets to assess dental disease
  • Polishing to smooth enamel scratches that may attract bacteria
  • Charting gingival pockets and recession on each tooth
  • Removal or repair of fractured or infected teeth
  • Dental charting so progression of dental disease can be monitored over time
  • Inspection of the lips, tongue, and entire mouth for growths, wounds, or other problems

4Screenings
Firstly, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off color or unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every 6 months as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.
Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.

5Geriatric Pet Care
When does a pet become "old"?
It varies, but cats and small dogs are generally considered geriatric at the age of 7.
Larger breed dogs tend to have shorter life spans and are considered geriatric when they are approximately 6 years of age.
Owners tend to want to think of their pet's age in human terms. While it is not as simple as "1 human year = X cat/dog years", there are calculations that can help put a pet's age in human terms.
