Routine care

Routine care

Better care begins by listening to our clients. We cannot stress how important you are in providing us with a history of how your pet is acting at home. With these clues and a thorough physical exam we can discuss prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. It is important for your pet's overall health to have a yearly physical exam.
The veterinarian will check your pet’s ears, eyes, teeth, skin and hair & coat, and listen to their heart and lungs. This information is recorded and can be compared to past exams to see how your pet's health is progressing with age.

Vaccinations

Our pets rely on us for healthy and content lives. Therefore, we are responsible for their well-being and the upkeep of their vaccinations. Many of the serious diseases of dogs can be prevented by vaccination. Vaccination is inexpensive protection against costly treatment or even premature death of your dog. After the initial vaccination course,

four injections 4 weeks apart, it is recommended that your pet is vaccinated every 12 months. The vaccination also includes a general health check.

Microchipping

The whole procedure takes just a few seconds. A small capsule, the size of a grain of rice, containing the animal's unique registration number is simply inserted under the skin at the back of the animal's neck. The microchip number can be read via a handheld scanner. Vets, the S.P.C.A. and pet rescue centers all have suitable microchip scanners. The name and address details relating to the microchip number are all stored on a national database. If your pet becomes lost it can easily be identified and its owner contacted.
