Dermatology Consults

Does constant scratching or licking rule your pet’s life? Don’t write off these behaviors as minor annoyances, they could be signs of allergies or other skin disorders. Painful rashes or other sources of uncomfortable itching causes hair loss and/or sores. Skin conditions in animals can be treated easily or prevented entirely with a dermatology consultation with a veterinarian.

Signs your pet may need a dermatology consultation:

  • Scratching, licking, pawing, or biting at skin or fur
  • Rubbing against furniture or carpet
  • Red or irritated skin
  • Sores, blisters, or rashes
  • Dry or flaky skin

Seek a dermatology exam and consultation for your dog or cat to give your pet relief from the constant irritation brought on by skin rashes, parasites, allergies, and more.

Ophthalmology Consults & Referrals

Ocular diseases are common in our pets. It is important to detect and rapidly treat them. Our team is here for you and your pet and we offer eye health examinations to establish a diagnosis and propose the various treatments available or referral to a specialist.

Vaccination Programs

Vaccines are started during puppy/kitten-hood and are continued throughout their lifetime.

All dogs and cats should be vaccinated against diseases that are widespread, cause serious illness, and/or are highly contagious (termed “core” vaccines). Other vaccines may be recommended based on risk a particular disease poses to your pet, and your pet’s lifestyle. Your dog/cat should begin their vaccine protocol as puppies/kittens and continue to get boosters throughout their lifetime.

Vaccinations are administered by the Veterinarian or Registered Veterinary Technician during a wellness exam. They are the BEST way to protect your pet from potentially fatal diseases that can be prevented.

See our FAQ section for more information on core and non-core vaccines.

Wellness Exams

Healthy pets are happy pets.

Bringing your pet in for an annual wellness checkup can help reassure you that your dog or cat is healthy and help us detect hidden diseases/conditions early.

Early detection can improve the prognosis of many diseases, keep medical costs down, and help your pet live longer. Many dogs and cats are good at hiding signs that something is wrong, so subtle changes in their health or behavior might be easy to overlook. Furthermore, depending on the disease, some pets don’t show any symptoms.

Puppy/Kitten Health Care

Our puppy/kitten wellness program is designed to help get your puppy/kitten started on the right path to a long and healthy life.

The first few months are a critical period in your puppy’s/kitten’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog or cat, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behavior, and socialization.

Senior Health Care

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!

Diagnosing diseases and certain conditions early is important throughout a pet’s life, but it becomes even more critical when your dog or cat enters his or her senior years. The risks of arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hormone disorders, and kidney and liver problems all increase with age. In addition, dogs and cats may not show any signs of even serious diseases until they are advanced.
