Wellness exams and vaccination programs are designed to prevent diseases and to prolong the lives of your companion animals. We recommend a complete physical exam with core vaccinations for your pets at least once a year. Disease prevention saves a significant amount of time and money rather than dealing with the treatment of a disease once your pet has developed it. Early diagnosis of a disease can lead your pet to a longer and healthier life.
Our staff and facility allow us to deal with a variety of medical conditions your pet may experience. In some cases, your pet may require hospitalization, X- rays, blood tests, ultrasonography studies, or to be referred to a veterinary specialist for further diagnostic tests and treatments.
We provide many types of surgical services at our clinic, including routine spay, neuter, soft tissue and dental surgeries. Occasionally, we refer our patients to specialists (i.e., board-certified veterinary surgeons) for complex operations to be performed by specialized surgical staff with proper medical equipment.
A microchip is implanted by injecting a chip, the size of a grain of rice, under the skin. The procedure is quick, painless, safe, and permanent. 1 in 3 pets are lost or stolen each year in Canada. Many lost pets are euthanized or adopted if the owner cannot be located. With the secure and confidential data base, valuable information is registered under each unique microchip number that will aid in identifying a stray or stolen pets. This procedure is most often done during spaying/neutering.
It is always hard and heartbreaking to say goodbye to your beloved pet because of an untreatable disease that’s causing too much suffering. We are available to help in such a difficult situation by ensuring that your pet receives the best care and compassion to the last minute. We also provide our clients with the time and space to spend with their pets during their last moments.
We offer a variety of therapeutic and preventative diets for dogs and cats. These diets provide nutrients with proven benefits in the management of medical conditions, as well as to help encourage optimal health and well-being in pets. We will gladly assist you in determining the best diet for your pet and develop a nutritional plan to help optimize the health of your pet.
We provide heartworm tests prior to the arrival of seasonal mosquitos by prescribing heartworm prevention drugs. It is recommended to have your pet tested for heartworms and have them on a prescribed heartworm prevention drug every year to keep your pets safe from a potentially life-threatening disease. The preventative drugs we offer also controls flea infestation, ear mites, sarcoptic mange mites, ticks, and round worms.
We provide clinical check-ups for your pets prior to your departure from Canada to another country. Some countries may ask if your pet has a microchip and sufficient rabies titer before entering their country. We provide microchip implant services, as well as collecting blood samples to transfer to internationally authorized laboratories to evaluate the rabies titer. It is highly recommended to check your trip schedule and also the regulations of the country you are going to. Rabies titer tests may take up to 4-6 weeks.
Similar to a human’s teeth, your pet’s teeth are also a very important part to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We recommend that your pet’s dental health is evaluated at least once a year because bacteria and food debris can accumulate. If their teeth are left untreated, it will lead to deterioration of the soft tissue and the bone surrounding the teeth. This decay results in irreversible periodontal disease and potentially tooth loss.
