Each pet is as individual as each owner. Therefore, their individual needs may vary. Our doctors will recommend methods of maintaining a healthy pet through preventive therapies. We believe in being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to your pet’s health.
A comprehensive yearly exam monitors the health of your pet, particularly as he/she ages. These exams play a large part in early detection of conditions where early treatment provides the best options for your pet. We think of this annual exam as a preventive "physical." Items assessed include vaccines, fecal testing, heartworm/tick disease testing, feline leukemia/FIV testing and strategic deworming. Teeth and gums are checked with recommendations for scheduling dental cleanings if needed. Skin, ears, eyes, and orthopedic issues are addressed as well. These annual exams ensure the best opportunity for a long and healthy life.
Annual vaccinations are given by our veterinarians. There is no exam fee when we give vaccinations as long as your pet has had a full exam within the last 12 months. Our doctors will discuss recommended vaccines with each client. For new pets/clients, we recommend bringing your pet’s most current vaccine information to the appointment. Vaccine reminders are mailed 1 month prior to due date to allow the owners time to fit an appointment into their busy schedules.
Digital x-rays are used to diagnose diseases, breaks, fractures, and obstructions. All of our veterinarians and technicians are trained in radiology to ensure x-rays are available at any time of day. Furthermore, we offer ultrasonography through a mobile imaging company.
We provide a variety of routine dental services for your pet, including cleaning, polishing, and oravet treatments. We can also help with those non-routine services involving extractions. The dental health of each pet will be graded by our doctors at each exam to determine his/her dental needs. Our team tries to educate every pet owner in proper preventive dental care by discussing the many dental hygiene products that are available and finding the best option for you and your pet.
Your pet may need medications as part of his/her continued care. We have protocols in place to monitor the extended use of certain medications, efficacy, possible side effects, and possible drug interactions. Our staff monitors these medications so that you can be informed and comfortable with the drugs prescribed for your pet. We will keep you informed of drug monitoring blood work for the safety of your pet using medications long-term.
Companion Animal Clinic recommends that your pet receives dewormings for intestinal parasites at regular intervals throughout the first year, then regular strategic dewormings as an adult pet. Dewormers will be recommended based on those results. You can be assured of the efficacy and safety of these medications when prescribed by your doctor specifically for your pet. Monthly heartworm prevention is also recommended year-round for pets traveling out of the area. Most of these preventatives include intestinal parasite protection. Our technicians and doctors can help in choosing the best options for your family and pet.
Some of the most common parasites are:
