Many pet owners are terrified by the thought of their pet undergoing anesthesia. In some cases, this fear and uncertainty can prevent pets from receiving the medical care they need and deserve. Rest assured that your pet will receive safe, comprehensive, advanced anesthesia care from our staff of caring professionals. From major and minor surgeries to diagnostic procedures, we can meet your pet’s anesthetic needs.
There is nothing more important to us than your pet’s safety, so we perform a variety of pre-anesthetic tests to carefully screen patients and tailor our anesthetic protocol specifically for your pet. Our trained staff and doctors monitor your pet before, during, and after anesthesia to help ensure the best possible outcome. We also take time to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have about the medications, monitoring, and care your pet will receive. When you trust our dedicated health care professionals to manage your pet’s anesthetic care, you can rest assured that safety, efficacy, and comfort are always foremost in our minds.
All vaccines must be up to date for boarding.
Our kennels provide plenty of room for each animal to move about inside their separate run or cage. We feed all of our boarders Hill's Science Diet food. Each boarder is given Capstar upon check-in, which is a pill that eliminates any flea problem they may have and lasts for up to 48 hours. This prevents fleas from spreading to other animals while being boarded. Every guest is given the opportunity to accept a bath.
We walk dogs a minimum of twice daily and feed twice daily unless otherwise instructed by the owner. We encourage owners to let us know if special care or treatment must be observed while their pet is boarding with us. Owners are encouraged to bring the pet's food, toys, and blankets from home.
Cats are fed twice daily also, and have clean water available at all times. We clean the litter boxes throughout the day to be sure they remain fresh. And again, items can be brought from home to keep our boarders more comfortable and feeling more at home.
We make provision to board birds and small exotics as well. In these cases, the owners will need to provide all food.
Does your best friend have bad breath? Despite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria lead to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened gums, and other common signs of dental disease. As dental disease progresses, other signs can include drooling, discomfort while chewing, and loose or missing teeth. Even if you’re using treats and chews to help control tartar, these are frequently not enough to keep dental disease in check. Ask us about the best ways to control plaque and help protect your pet from dental disease.
Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet's health, because dental disease can be associated with other serious health problems such as heart disease and kidney disease. But how do you know if your pet has a healthy mouth? Let us examine your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine if there are any dental issues you should know about. After a brief visual examination, we may recommend a more detailed examination (which requires sedation), a dental cleaning, or options for at-home dental care. We use a state-of-the-art machine which produces high quality images of your pets’ teeth. These allow us to better evaluate the condition of your pets’ oral health.
Even if you think your pet’s teeth and gums are fine, we can offer expert advice to help you keep them that way! Dental health shouldn’t be taken for granted. Fortunately, many dental problems can be managed through at-home care and by bringing your pet to us for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings.
We want your pet to live a long, healthy life, and we understand that maintaining a healthy mouth is part of that. Your pet’s health is important to us, so let us help you with this commitment. Call today to discuss your pet’s dental care needs and how we can help!
