How should I prepare for my pet's annual appointment?
An annual exam is a standard procedure that we conduct but it is up to you to keep watch and make notes about your pet’s health and behavior. Our comprehensive full body examination of your pet will help ensure optimal health. Please come to us with anything that you notice or any questions that you may have.
What is the process for having my pet spayed or neutered?
Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately five months of age. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine if they are healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.
How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?
Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed about 10 days following the surgery.
How often does my pet need to have their teeth cleaned? Is there anything I should be doing at home?
We will examine your pet's teeth during their annual exam to determine the best schedule for your pet. Just like people, individual pets develop tartar and oral disease at different rates. Many large dogs can go for one to three years without a cleaning at your animal clinic. However, most smaller breeds need a professional cleaning every six to twelve months. However, by brushing your pet’s teeth at home, and feeding Science Diet T/D you can minimize how often your pet will need its teeth professionally cleaned.
Can my pet catch a cold or flu?
Although your pet can catch strep throat, he can't catch a cold or the flu from you. That does not mean your pet can’t have an upper respiratory infection or intestinal disruptions. Coughing, sneezing, vomiting and or diarrhea can all be debilitating for your pet and we recommending setting up an appointment with our animal clinic if your pet is suffering from these symptoms.
