Spaying or neutering your pet is important for several reasons. It promotes good health and prevents your pet from getting serious illnesses. For female pets, spaying prevents breast and uterine cancer as well as uterine infections. For males, neutering discourages spraying and marking as well as minimizes chances for testicular or prostate cancer. Also, spay/neutering pets does our part in reducing the ranks of homeless and unwanted pets.
Declawing your cat is not a decision to take lightly. Our veterinarian will be happy to help you determine if it’s the best thing for you and your cat. For you the advantage is that your furniture and other items cannot be ruined by scratching paws. For your cat it means being an indoor pet for the rest of his or her life. Whatever you decide, we will perform a safe surgery with minimal pain for your cat.
Ear draining is necessary when your pet develops an enlarged, lumpy earflap which are actually pools of blood within the ear. Caused by physical trauma and/or ear infections, they make the pet uncomfortable, causing head shaking and ear scratching. Besides discomfort, complications can arise if these are not surgically drained by our vet.
Broken bones and bone fractures in pets are potentially life-threatening emergencies that require immediate veterinary care. If your pet limps, whines, or otherwise shows distress, call us right away. Depending on the location and severity of the break, your pet may or may not need orthopedic surgery. Most bone fractures are caused by blunt force trauma, such as a car accident or rough handling.
Perhaps the most remarkable of our state-of-the-art healing tools and treatments is the laser. Laser surgery is much less invasive than traditional methods and results in less pain, less bleeding, and less risk of infection for your pet. We also offer laser therapy which is a method for providing quicker tissue repair and drug-free pain relief.
