Comprehensive Physical Exams
Your pet can benefit greatly from regular examinations or checkups. Whether your pet is a youngster, a “senior citizen,” or any age in between, comprehensive physical examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information will help us identify medical problems and any other issues that can affect your pet’s health and quality of life.
Spencer Creek Animal Hospital knows that untreated parasites can cause serious illness and even death in pets. For example, ticks can transmit infections like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and fleas can transmit tapeworms and Bartonella – the bacteria that causes “cat-scratch fever” in humans. Another type of parasite, called a heartworm, is transmitted by mosquitoes. Heartworms live in your pet’s lungs and heart, causing damage to these organs, and sometimes even death. Intestinal parasites, like roundworms and hookworms, also threaten pets and are even transmissible to humans.
In our continuing efforts to offer the highest quality veterinary medicine, we provide a wide range of surgical services for our patients. From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we have the state of the art equipment and experience to care for your pet’s surgical needs.
Vaccines help protect your pet from deadly infectious diseases. Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases that were once common.
Puppy and Kitten Care
Do you have a new puppy or kitten? Congratulations on this addition to your family! One of the first things you should do when you bring your new pet home is to introduce him or her to us – your veterinary care team. Puppy and kitten visits offer a unique opportunity to get you and your new pet off on the right foot!
Does your best friend have bad breath? Despite what many pet owners may believe, “dog or kitty breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath or halitosis is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria lead to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened and bleeding gums, and other common signs of dental disease. As dental disease progresses, other signs can include drooling, discomfort while chewing, oral pain, and loose or missing teeth. Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health, because dental disease can be associated with internal infections leading to serious health problems such as heart disease and kidney disease.
Laboratory testing is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As we continually strive to offer the highest-quality medicine, we are proud to include in-house diagnostic laboratory services as a means of providing excellent care to our patients.
