Diagnostics and Treatment
We utilize x-rays in an effort to provide an accurate and efficient diagnosis before coming up with an individualized treatment plan for your pet. The faster we’re able to diagnose your pet’s illness, the faster we’re able to help them feel better.
The most common reasons that we perform surgery on puppies and kittens is because they need to be spayed or neutered. These are routine procedures and they are important because they help to maintain the health and longevity of your pet. Spaying and neutering in both cats and dogs contribute greatly to the prevention of infections, tumors, cancer, and other health-threatening conditions. Having your pet spayed or neutered helps to curb behavioral issues and to control the pet homelessness epidemic in the U.S.
In addition to the Spay and Neuter services, we also have a range of other surgeries that we provide for pets, depending on their specific diagnosis.
Treatment Options For Diagnoses
The type of treatment and/or surgery we recommend is always going to depend on your pet’s particular circumstances. Our assessment of what’s necessary begins with a thorough exam followed by a consideration of your pet’s breed, age, physical condition and a review of their medical history. We use these factors to determine a diagnosis that, consequently, informs our suggestions for the course of treatment. The surgical treatment options that we currently offer include:
- Laser Therapy
- Ophthalmic Surgery
- Oral Surgery
- Orthopedic Surgery
- General Surgery
Periodontal disease affects the majority of dogs and cats by age three. If not addressed, this can lead to a host of other oral and systemic health problems. The proliferation of bacteria, plaque and tartar can also result in organ damage and strain on the immune system.
