What’s the Deal With Pet Wellness Exams?

July 25th, 2017

pet welllnessIt may seem like an oxymoron to bring your pet to your veterinarian when he or she is healthy, but without preventive care, the bedrock of overall wellness is at risk. Certainly, when there aren’t any pervasive signs of illness of injury, routine pet wellness exams get the backburner. However, they’re essential to give us the opportunity to address developing problems before they get out of hand.

Why Pet Wellness Matters

Cats and dogs should be seen at least once a year until they reach about 7 years of age. At that point, they’re considered seniors, and due to common age-related illnesses, two visits per year are strongly recommended.

When Things Go Awry: Recognizing a Pet Emergency

June 25th, 2017

pet emergencyWe are proud to offer a full menu of veterinary services, but when minutes matter in the life of a suffering animal, emergency care becomes very important. It can definitely be argued that routine wellness checks, dental exams, and disease prevention greatly reduce health risks, but a pet emergency can seemingly erupt out of the blue.

Whatever the case may be, pet owners want to be in the know.

An Interesting Place to Find a Cat.

March 2nd, 2012

“Lola” was found as a stray in the garden department of a local Lowes Hardware. (Get it? Lola/Lowes?) She wouldn’t let any of the staff get close to her, and she hid among the lumber and fencing. Our client first saw her way way up on top of a stack of lumber. She convinced Lowes to let her come each night and set a humane trap. On the second night, Lola couldn’t resist the Fancy Feast inside the trap. The plan was to tame her, foster her and find a home for her. “Lola”, however, decided that she had found her home. Dr. McNeal got to do “Lola’s” first exam and vaccinations this afternoon.

Ray Ray

February 13th, 2012

There were only two puppies, but after a successful delivery of the first (named Ray Ray), the second pup hadn’t come in the next 5 hours. Ultimately we did a C-Section, but the second pup didn’t survive. Keep your veterinarian in the loop. If there is an hour between puppies call your vet. The quicker we see the mom that is having trouble, the better the chance that the puppies will survive and mom will be OK. Ray Ray is thriving and a joy to his owner.
