Assessing Health from Head to Tail

We prioritize the health and well-being of every pet that enters our Spay and Neuter Clinic. That's why every patient receives a thorough Comprehensive Exam before undergoing any procedure. Not only do we want to ensure their fitness for surgery, but we are also deeply committed to educating our clients. During the exam, our dedicated team conducts a meticulous head-to-tail inspection of your pet. We examine their ears, eyes, nose, gums, teeth, and lymph nodes, check their temperature, listen to their heart and lungs, and carefully examine their body for any abnormalities or skin lesions. We also palpate their abdomen and provide an immediate impression of their overall health and well-being.


Safety Assessment and Informed Discussion

We take the time to have comprehensive discussions with you about your pet's history and any existing health issues. Our unwavering commitment to safety means that we thoroughly evaluate our patients to ensure anesthesia and surgery risks are minimized. If we identify any concerns that could pose a danger to your beloved pet, we will postpone the procedure temporarily. Rest assured, we will guide you through the reasons and provide you with the information and resources needed to address the issue, such as recommending blood tests, weight management, or specialized care. Our goal is to ensure your pet's safety and well-being at all times.


Procedure Explanation & What to Expect

Once we determine that your pet is healthy and ready for the procedure, we take the time to explain our protocols, the anesthesia risks, the surgical process, and what you can expect during the recovery period. We believe in open communication and want you to feel confident and informed every step of the way.


Pet Care & Long-Term Support

But our commitment doesn't end there! Our caring veterinary technicians and doctors will also discuss the importance of vaccinations, boosters, and regular pet care. We can help provide specific guidance for your pet and discuss potential future health issues they may face. We recognize that our patients are not mere numbers on a chart; they are unique individuals who deserve care tailored to their specific needs. We also approach every client as if it's their first and last visit to a veterinarian, striving to make sure every pet parent has the tools to keep their pet healthy and happy for years to come.

We firmly believe that every pet parent who walks through our doors wants the best for their furry companions, just like we do. We are here to help support you and your pet's journey toward a long, joyful, and healthy life together.
