Customized Care and Treatment Plans For Your Pets!

How often does my pet need a check up?

Yearly exams are important but building a good relationship with your veterinarian is very beneficial. We are only a phone call away

and would be happy to answer any questions. Puppies/Kittens and seniors usually require more than a yearly examination. Remember that this is

necessary because they age a lot faster than people do.

What is the most common disease in dogs/cats and how can I prevent my pet from getting it?

Periodontal/Gingival Disease are by far the most common illnesses found in our pets. Although this disease can be inherited, it can also be prevented by

daily teeth brushing, CET Aquadent mouth wash, dental chews, and diets.

What is the best type of food for my pet?

There is no correct answer here, it is important that you do the research and read the labels of foods that go in to your pets. Of course if your pet has any

preexisting illnesses such as diabetes or kidney disease please consult your veterinarian for a prescription diet that is best suited for your furry friend.

How can I treat obesity?

Obesity is a very common disease with our pets. Treating it is no easy manner, it entails a lot of work for the owner. All Treatments should consist of

consulting your veterinarian first. Things such as cutting caloric intake and increasing the amount of daily activity for your pet are most commonly done.

However, sometimes blood work may be necessary to diagnose hormonal imbalances such as hypothyroidism and Cushing’s Disease. Once treatment

occurs for these underlying diseases weight loss will occur. Prescription diets/medications may also be used to help in weight loss

What foods are toxic to my pet?

Foods such as chocolate, onions, grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts, moldy foods, tobacco products, rising bread dough, etc. Other foods can cause also

cause upset stomachs, many plants can also be very dangerous. Please consult your veterinarian if anything besides pet food/treat is ingested.
