Basic Veterinary Care for Dogs
Grooming: Your dog should be on a regular grooming schedule so that we can prevent or treat matting, excessive shedding, paw disorders, and skin problems. Our dog grooming services include a bath, blow dry, nail clipping, ear cleaning, and a clip.
Dental Care: Your dog’s mouth is a good indication of his or her overall health. Our services Include teething cleaning, polishing, tooth extractions, dental x-rays, and oral surgery.
Spay and Neuter. We spay female dogs and neuter male dogs under anesthesia. If you’d like information on the best time to sterilize your dog, call us.
Tests. Our tests include blood chemistry, electrocardiogram, hematology, stool sample checks, and urinalysis. We also test for allergies, arthritis and heartworm for your dog.
Vaccines. We vaccinate for distemper, canine parvovirus, canine hepatitis, and rabies, plus other vaccines that will be determined by Dr. Leffler according to your dog’s potential risk.
Senior Care. We have a senior care program that ensures high-quality care for your dog as he or she ages, plus helps to detect diseases earlier. Every six months, we perform blood testing and check kidney and liver enzyme levels.
Advanced Veterinary Care for Dogs
- Advanced Anesthetic Patient Monitoring. General anesthesia is required for many surgeries. When your dog is in surgery, we monitor his or her vital signs, including respiratory rate, heart rate, and blood pressure.
- Laser Surgery. Laser surgery is used to treat diseases in your dog’s upper and lower GI tract, such as ulcers and benign polyps, and is also used in other surgeries. Laser surgery carries many benefits. It prevents infection, reduces bleeding and swelling, and allows for a faster recovery than traditional scalpel surgery.
- Laser Therapy. We use laser therapy to treat pain, swelling, and to help heal small cuts or lacerations by increasing your dog’s natural healing process. It carries fewer risks and side effects, and doesn’t require anesthesia.
- Ultrasound. Our diagnostic ultrasound is used to diagnose and treat your dog’s conditions. It is completely safe, and just a bit of hair will have to be clipped from your pet in order to properly conduct the exam.
