 To ensure a proper diagnosis, we often 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 perform blood  and/or urine tests 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), endoscopy (internal  scoping), ultrasound, or biopsy.

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.

 As dogs and cats get older, they need more attention and special care.  Our senior wellness program can help your pet remain fit and healthy as  he or she ages and help us catch any potential problems earlier, when  they’re easier to treat or manage. Regular veterinary exams can actually  help your pet live longer, too!

We can treat many symptoms that are commonly attributed to age,  including those associated with cognitive dysfunction syndrome (similar  to Alzheimer’s in humans). We can also improve your pet’s quality of  life in many ways: by identifying and preventing or reducing pain,  recommending an appropriate nutrition and exercise plan, and suggesting  environmental modifications to keep your pet comfortable.

 Schedule your puppy for his or her first exam as soon as possible.  Until your puppy has received a series of vaccines, he or she is  susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure  your new dog is protected against rabies, distemper, and parvovirus,  among other diseases. Your puppy will also need to be tested and treated  for parasites, which are extremely common in young dogs.

Most puppies have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can  cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although  dogs can have worms without showing any symptoms). It is important for  puppies to be treated for roundworms, not only to rid them of the  infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from  becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite, which means they  can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your puppy is  properly treated, you can keep your entire family safe from these and  other parasites.

Schedule your kitten for his or her first exam as soon as possible.  Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, he or she is  susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure  your new pet is protected against rabies and panleukopenia (distemper).  Depending on your cat’s risk, we may also advise vaccinating him or her  against other diseases, such as feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline  immunodeficiency virus (FIV). In addition, your kitten will need to be  tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young cats.

Most kittens have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can  cause coughing, weight loss, and a potbellied appearance in cats  (although they may not cause any symptoms). It is important for kittens  to be treated for roundworms, not only to help rid them of the infection  but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming  infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite, which means they can be  transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your kitten is  properly treated, you can keep your entire family safe.
