Behavior Consultations

Shifts in your pet’s behavior may be an indication of underlying medical issues. At City Vets we review our patient’s behavior and assess them for medical concerns that may be causing the issue. From there, we develop a plan to address your pet’s behavior.

If we find your pet’s behavior is not a result of a medical condition, we will discuss other measures that can be taken to correct certain behaviors.

Dental Care

Oral health is a very important part of your pet’s overall wellbeing. At City Vets we recommend clients have their pet’s teeth examined at least once a year to detect early warning signs of periodontal disease. Common warning signs of deteriorating oral health include:

  • Bad breath
  • Broken or loose teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
  • Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
  • Reduced appetite or refusal to eat
  • Pain in or around the mouth
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Swelling in the areas surrounding the mouth

Often times, dental disease occurs below the gum line and is difficult to see but can be very painful to your pet. Additionally, periodontal disease can cause other health problems including kidney, liver, and heart muscle changes. During your pet’s dental exam, we will conduct a thorough assessment and if a cause for concern is identified, we will recommend an action plan to address the issue.

Senior Pet Care

If your pet is 7 years of age or older, they require specialized senior care. Pets are living longer than ever thanks to modern medicine, but proper exercise, nutrition and bi-annual wellness exams are extremely important to ensure your pet has the longest life possible. More frequent visits will help us catch and address the early warning signs of common age-related diseases, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Gum disease
  • Diabetes
  • Blindness
  • Kidney disease
  • Cancer
  • Dementia

Surgery

At City Vets we utilize safe, modern methods to ensure your pets receive the best surgical experience possible. Every pet that undergoes a surgical procedure will receive general anesthesia and a post-operation pain management plan. We offer several common procedures including spay, neuter, mass removals, orthopedic procedures, and more. Whether your pet is undergoing emergency surgery or a planned procedure, safety remains our number one priority. Our staff is here to answer any questions you may have throughout the process and will keep you involved from start to finish.

Vaccines and Parasite Prevention

Vaccinations and parasite prevention are essential parts of your pet’s health care plan. At City Vets, we create a personalized plan to meet the exact needs of your dog or cat.

Vaccinations are effective in preventing future disease and the costly treatments for these diseases. Additionally, animals are susceptible to a variety of parasites that can be easily avoided with parasite preventative. Many pet parasites can infect people in addition to pets, which means parasite prevention is important for the health of your pet and the health of your family.

Wellness Exams

Routine wellness exams are a vital component of preventive medicine. At City Vets, we encourage annual wellness exams to find and treat diseases before they become serious or painful. Early detection is key to avoiding costly treatments and addressing the matter quickly.

During your pet’s wellness exam, our staff will perform a thorough evaluation of your pet’s physical and internal health. During your appointment we will assess:

  • Overall Body Condition
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Nose
  • Mouth
  • Throat
  • Heart and Lungs
  • Abdominal Organs
  • Musculoskeletal System
  • Neurologic System
  • Urogenital System
  • Lymph Nodes
  • Skin/Coat

If any areas of concern are identified during your pet’s exam, we will develop a treatment plan together. Routine bloodwork and fecal testing are highly recommended for us to detect internal parasites or underlying issues that we cannot detect during a physical exam.
