By spaying your female pet, you’re protecting her against potentially deadly diseases including bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer.
By neutering your male pet, you’re reducing the risk or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. Neutering will also reduce or eliminate undesirable and embarrassing behavior including roaming, fighting, humping, and spraying. In addition, neutering your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.
The most common soft tissue surgery performed on pets is the removal of masses or lumps. Most of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (nonharmful); however, occasionally they are more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump are necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous.
We perform many types of eye surgeries in our clinic because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome. These surgeries include eyelid surgeries (entropion and ectropion), cherry eye repair, and corneal ulcer repair (conjunctival flap surgeries). Give us a call today for more information on these procedures.
Fleas can cause problems for pets ranging from minor to life-threatening. Not only can these parasites cause severe itching, irritation, and allergies, but they can also transmit tapeworms and diseases. Make an appointment today and have your pet checked and/or treated for fleas.
There’s an easy way to keep your dog or cat safe, by administering monthly heartworm preventatives. Most heartworm medications also protect your pet against other parasites, such as roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, ear mites, fleas, and ticks. We can recommend the best regimen of prevention for your pet upon visiting.
Don’t panic if you find a tick on your dog or cat, even if your pet is on a preventative. Some preventatives kill ticks after they’ve come in contact with your pet. Do not hesitate to ask us any questions you might have.
