Canine Health Services

 

Wellness Program.  This program emphasizes care that prevents illnesses rather than waiting for an illness to strike. In general, as pet care improves, the quality of life of the pet and its owner also improves.

  3. Routine intestinal parasite checks done twice annually
  4. Heartworm testing annually or on a schedule recommended by Dr. Butler

Canine Behavior.  Nothing stresses an owner/pet relationship like behavior problems. If unchecked, these problems can lead to medical problems.

1.      Counseling and treatment for problems such as housebreaking, barking, anxiety, aggressiveness, and depression.

2.      Housebreaking tips

3.      Referrals to obedience schools and trainers

 

Anesthesia.  Never totally without risk, anesthesia is utilized on a case by case basis. Age, species, breed, and physical condition dictate the anesthetic of choice. We utilize a variety of anesthetics, including Sevoflurane which is used in many human hospitals for pediatric, high risk, patients. We offer pre-anesthetic blood testing to further increase the safety of our anesthesia. We also use heart, respiratory, and blood pressures monitors while our patients are under anesthesia.

Pharmacy. We maintain an inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick medications, and heartworm preventives to meet you pet's individual needs.
