While we stress the importance of preventative medicine, we are a full service veterinary facility. Vaccinations are an integral part of this but tailored to your pet’s life style. We care for all stages of pets from your puppy or kitten to your geriatric pet. We offer full in house laboratory services.
Vaccines and Preventive Medicine:
We provide both core and non core vaccines for dogs and cats. Here at Wedgwood Animal Hospital we recommend that all dogs receive canine distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza, and rabies vaccinations. Core vaccines for cats include feline distemper, feline calicivirus, feline herpes, and a feline specific rabies. Puppies and kittens should receive their first set of vaccines between six and eight weeks of age. We also offer non core vaccines that include lyme, leptospirosis, bordatella and canine influenza vaccine for dogs and the leukemia vaccine for cats.
We recommend annual wellness exams for adult dogs and cats between one and seven years old. Puppies, kittens, and senior pets should have more frequent examinations. At each check-up, we record your pet's weight and temperature, ask about eating habits and exercise, and discuss parasite control. Our veterinarians also check for specific health issues, such as diabetes and signs of cancer. You also have the chance to get help with any behavioral concerns.
This deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that originate in specific body systems. These include the endocrine, gastrointestinal, immune, lymphatic, renal, respiratory, and urogenital systems. One of the specific tests we may perform on your pet is bloodwork and a urinalysis. If an ultrasound is needed we have a board certified internal medicine specialist/ultrasonographer available for an in house appointment. If further advanced diagnostics such as bronchoscopy, CT and/or MRI scan, or endoscopy are required then you would be referred to a local board certified veterinary specialist.
Commonly used to diagnose a multitude of conditions, the veterinary X-Ray is a primary component of our diagnostic arsenal. Our doctors may see conditions such an obstruction due to a foreign body, diagnose heart disease, or examine a fracture with an X-ray machine.
X-rays can be stressful for any pet, but our staff is trained to take extra time in making your pet comfortable while performing these necessary diagnostics. In rare occasions, a light sedation may be needed with your companion animal to obtain the proper position for the radiograph.
Your pet's oral health is a good indicator of his or her overall well-being. We check the teeth and gums at every wellness exam to look for signs of infection or other dental problems. Additionally, you can schedule an appointment for a dental cleaning under general anesthesia. Our staff works with clients to teach them proper tooth brushing techniques for an at-home routine along with other dental preventative products.
Although the age at which dogs and cats are considered a senior can vary by breed, we like to start seeing pets for bi-annual exams around age seven. Like people, older pets have an increased risk of kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, senility, and general weakness. Staying on top of these issues helps improve the quality of life for your pet in the senior years. Mobility challenges and behavior changes are also more common with older pets.
Some of the most common surgeries we perform include tooth extraction, removal of skin masses, bladder stones, and surgery for various types of cancer. Regardless of the type of surgery your pet needs, your companion animal’s veterinarian will let you know exactly what you can expect. This includes the surgical procedure itself as well as the recovery at home.
Spay and Neuters:
Spaying your female pet and neutering your male pet helps to control pet overpopulation. Unfortunately, millions of pets are euthanized every year because there are not enough homes for all of them. Additional benefits of sterilization include a longer lifespan, reduced risk of mammary gland and testicular cancer, no heat cycles or roaming behavior, and less aggressive behavior by both males and females.
