Routine Pet Care Services

The first thing a new pet needs is vaccinations, spay or neuter service, a microchip implanted, and to meet the veterinarian who is to be their regular doctor. Pets need a checkup once per year just like people, and it's arguably more important for a pet because they can't always express specifically when they are feeling pain or discomfort in a way you can understand. A person understands when they need to see a doctor, a pet doesn't and therefore needs to be checked regularly for routine health problems specific to the breed or common illness that can occur.

Specific Conditions and Emergency Treatment

Specific conditions are different from routine care, yet also explain the need for regular veterinary visits. When a pet is injured, they are going to be upset and uncomfortable, which is not the best time to take them to a new place to meet new people. If your pet has already been to our veterinary hospital and met our staff, it will make it easier to bring in your pet when sick or injured. Although it's impossible to make a comprehensive and exhaustive list of potential conditions or injuries your pet could endure. An experienced veterinarian will know how to treat anything which goes wrong, whether the pet ingested a toxin, had a tussle with another dog or wild animal, or is experiencing certain conditions known to cause discomfort in that breed of pets as they age.
