GENERAL CARE SERVICES


Congratulations on your new puppy or kitten! Raising them can be both rewarding and challenging.

Yearly physical exams are important check-in points in your pet’s life with you. These appointments allow Dr. Tina to determine the overall health based on physical exam findings, but she may have suggestions for improving the quality of your beloved pet’s life and preventing your pet from contracting detrimental disease. It is our primary goal to keep your pet healthy and provide the best care possible. Your pet is carefully evaluated at every wellness exam, from nose to tail and from coat to internal organs. Your pet’s need for vaccinations that will protect against disease, as well as the necessity for flea, tick, and heartworm prevention, will be assessed. Dental hygiene and weight management will also be discussed. Dental disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets. An astounding 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS). Weight management also becomes important in ensuring your pets do not develop diabetes, arthritis, respiratory difficulty, among other diseases. Taking into consideration your individual pet’s condition, age, and breed type, Dr. Tina will then determine what vaccines, treatments, and tests are appropriate for him/her.

Medical advancements have enabled early detection of diseases and when managed well, can add years to your pet’s quality of life. Most common diseases afflicting our senior pets include arthritis, diabetes, urinary tract infections, kidney disease, liver disease, thyroidal disease and cancer. Scheduling regular veterinary examinations is one of the most important steps pet owners can take to keep their pets happy and healthy. When dogs and cats enter their senior years, these health examinations are more important than ever as they allow for early detection and delay the onset or progress of disease such as organ failure and osteoarthritis. Healthy senior dogs and cats are recommended to have a veterinarian visit every 6 months for a complete physical assessment and laboratory testing—a key component of a senior exam. The importance of dental hygiene, nutrition and exercise catered to our senior pets will also be discussed.

“Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.” -John Galsworthy

Dr. Tina’s professionalism and bedside manner gives you a sense of peace in making the tough decision to part with your beloved friend. Saying good-bye is never easy, but it makes it easier on the pet and yourself when you are able to share tender final moments together with supporting family members and even other pets present all in the comfort of your own home. Our furry companions offer us endless joy, unconditional love and remain child-like to us all their lives – which is why it is so incredibly heartbreaking when the time comes that we have to part. If you are not sure it is the “right time” to say your final good-byes, an end-of-life/euthanasia consultation with Dr. Tina may help to make the decision easier. She will talk about your pets quality of life, the euthanasia process itself and plan for memorializing your pet the way family members would like. Although it may be difficult to discuss this process, family members cope better with the loss of their beloved pet if they have prepared for it through this consult.

SPAYING

What it is: Spaying is the surgical removal of the uterus and the ovaries.

Why Spay my female cat/dog? Spaying offers several advantages. In cats and dogs, the female’s heat periods last for 2-3 weeks. Female dog heats result in 2-3 weeks of vaginal bleeding around the household. Female cats do not have vaginal bleeding, but become extremely vocal and exhibit overly affectionate behaviours over 2-3 weeks that recurs several times a year. Spaying also prevents unplanned litters of kittens or puppies. It has been proven that as the female cat/dog gets older, there is a significant incidence of breast cancer and uterine infections if she has not been spayed. Spaying before she has any heat periods will eliminate the chance of either as both life-threatening conditions. If you do not plan to breed your cat or dog, it is strongly recommended she is spayed before her first heat period, typically at 6 months of age.

NEUTERING

What it is: Neutering is the surgical removal of the testes.

Why Neuter my male cat/dog? Unneutered male cats and dogs are more aggressive and more likely to fight, especially with other male cats/dogs. Neutering a male cat prevents malodourous urine marking/spraying around the household. As dogs age, the prostate gland frequently enlarges and causes difficulty urinating and defecating. Neutering also prevents and treats prostatic infections or cyst formation—both of which can be life-threatening conditions.

Each year thousands of lost animals are taken in by shelters across North America. Some of these animals never make it home because they cannot be identified. Microchipping offers a permanent method of identifying your pet and linking your pet back to you. A microchip is a small device inserted just under the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. Collar tags can break or become unreadable. In case your pet was to go missing, microchipping lasts a lifetime, is a quick, painless procedure and best option for getting your pets home fast and safe.

Tartar buildup on the teeth causes irritation of the gums around the base of the teeth, resulting in exposure of the roots, infection and tooth loss. Infection within the mouth will be picked up by the bloodstream and carried to other parts o the body. Kidney and heart infections frequently begin in the mouth. Dental disease is very painful and usually when pets are too painful to eat their food, especially in cats, life-threatening liver and/or other disease develops secondary to this inappetance.

Proper cleaning of the teeth requires complete cooperation of the patient so plaque and tartar can be removed properly. Anesthesia is required to thoroughly clean the teeth. Although aesthesia always carries a degree of risk, the modern aesthetics in use in the clinics minimize this risk, even for older pets. Depending on your pet’s age and general health status, blood may be analyzed prior to anesthesia to evaluate organ function and safety for anesthesia.

Dr. Tina can get a lot of information about what might be wrong with your dog or cat from talking to you and examining your pet. If an abnormality is found from the history and/or physical examination, an X-ray and/or ultrasound will allow visualization of organs and bones inside your pet’s body without having to perform an operation. An X-ray is essentially a picture whereas an ultrasound is a real time (movie) image of what is going on inside your pet’s body. Both procedures are noninvasive and do not hurt. They reveal very valuable information so that Dr. Tina can decide a treatment plan that best targets your pet’s therapy.

Intravenous fluid therapy involves placement of an intravenous catheter (an indwelling needle) in the leg so that a continuous drip of fluids and electrolytes can be given directly into the bloodstream. The procedure is not painful or stressful; after the catheter is placed, the patient simply relaxes in a hospital compartment, periodically receiving additional injectable medications through this intravenous catheter. Oftentimes patients requiring surgery, are dehydrated from an illness (vomiting/diarrhea, kidney disease, other organ disease, infection), and/or ingested a toxin, require fluid therapy to enable frequent injections of medications (eg. pain medication, antibiotics), re-establish electrolyte balance, hydration and/or flush their body free of toxins and infection.
