More than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have dental disease by the age of 3 according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. Dental disease can be very uncomfortable for pets and the longer it is ignored, the more complicated and costly it becomes to treat. Common signs of dental disease that pet owners should be aware of include:
At Animal Health Center, during each wellness visit we conduct a thorough oral exam to ensure that we identify causes for concern early and treat them before they lead to lead to issues with your pet’s heart, liver or kidneys. We highly recommend you have a veterinarian evaluate your pet’s dental health at least once a year even if your pet is not demonstrating symptoms. Schedule an oral exam to prevent irreversible periodontal disease, tooth loss, and possibly expensive oral surgery.
When your pet becomes suddenly ill or in event of an emergency, timely diagnostic test results are extremely important to help your veterinarian determine the best treatment plan. We have state-of-the-art in-hospital laboratory equipment capable of yielding lab results quickly.
Animal Health Center offers a fully stocked pharmacy to fill your pet’s prescription needs quickly and conveniently.
Microchipping is the most effective means of identification for your pet. Like vaccinations, microchipping is safe, quick and causes little pain. An ID tag should always be attached to your pet’s collar, but the microchip will help you rest easy knowing that if an accident does occur, your pet can still be identified. Most veterinary hospitals and shelters are equipped with microchip scanners that can be used to check for a chip. If the pet has one, it will transmit its ID number to the scanner and from there, they can retrieve the pet owner’s contact information from the manufacturer.
Puppies and kittens require special care for proper growth and healthy development. Animal Health Center’s comprehensive approach addresses your pet care needs from disease prevention to proper pet behavior. Puppy and Kitten care includes:
Regular check-ups are extremely important at all phases of life, but particularly when your pet is in their senior phase of life. During these senior check-ups the early warning signs of common age-related diseases can be identified and prevented. These age-related diseases include:
At Animal Health Center, our skilled veterinarians utilize the safest methods possible and both general and local anesthesia to control pain during procedures. We are equipped to perform various types of surgery, including spay/neuter, caesareans, tumor and lump removals, wound stitches, intestinal obstructions, extensive orthopedics and more. Using our state-of-the-art equipment, we will not only ensure your pet’s medical needs are addressed but will also make sure they feel calm and cared for throughout the entirety of the prep, procedure, and recovery process.
Vaccinations are an essential part of your pet’s health care plan starting from the time they are very young. Pets should be vaccinated between 6 and 12 weeks of age and require boosters throughout their life.
Additionally, animals are susceptible to a variety of parasites that can be easily avoided with regular parasite preventative. Many pet parasites can infect people in addition to animals, which means parasite prevention is important for the health of your pet and your family.
Vaccinations and preventative care give your pets the best chance to avoid sickness and disease. At Animal Health Center, we create a personalized plan to meet the exact needs of your pet.
