Pet Care for Pets of All Ages and Types
All Pets Vet Hospital provides comprehensive services for pets of all ages, from puppies and kittens to senior dogs and cats. General pet wellness is comprised of vaccination regimens, parasite prevention/management, spaying/neutering, and—in the case of some cats—declawing.
Puppies and Kittens
Each pet is an individual. When your pet begins his or her wellness program at All Pets Vet Hospital, we’ll discuss with you what are core vaccinations and what are non-core. We’ll also help you determine whether spaying, neutering, and declawing are appropriate for your pet.
In nearly all cases, pets should be placed on some level of parasite prevention to manage flea and tick infestations as well as prevent heartworms. Doing so not only brings more comfort to your pet, it potentially can save his or her life. While fleas cause itching and pain, ticks can cause Lyme disease and heartworms can be deadly.
Your puppy’s and kitten’s nutritional needs are as important as his or her medical needs. That’s why we stock our in-house pharmacy with more than just medicine; we offer prescription and diet foods, too. Our staff can consult with you regarding what nutritional products are most appropriate for your pet.
Exotic pets cover a wide range of species, from small mammals and birds to amphibians and reptiles. Just like dogs and cats, exotic pets can be examined and monitored to prevent or mitigate diseases and conditions.
Our staff is experienced in exotic pet care and our facility has all the advanced equipment to provide your exotic with the best care possible.
For senior pets, we recommend twice yearly physical exams so we can catch any aging-related issues sooner than later. Remember, your pets age roughly 7 years to every 1 actual year. When your pet hits about 7 or 8 years of age, you should consider him or her a senior pet.
Common issues in older pets include:
- Hip problems in taller dogs
- Knee problems in smaller dogs
- Lumps and bumps
- Hearing and vision loss
In addition to a general physical exam, we recommend the following procedures to be done twice a year for your senior pet:
- Blood work
- Urine analysis
- Blood pressure monitoring
- Chest X-rays
Our goal is to get your pet on a path to living his or her highest quality of life possible at all stages of life, and to build a relationship with you that is based on trust.
