Frequently Asked Questions
Is it really necessary to bring my dog and/or cat in for a yearly comprehensive exam?
Comprehensive examinations are recommended every year at minimum to check for health issues that may not be apparent to you. During a comprehensive examination the veterinarian will examine your pet’s eyes, ears, skin and hair coat, listen to their heart, check their weight, and discuss any nutritional and other concerns you may have.
Does Heartworm prevention and flea prevention need to be given year round?
Yes! Mosquitos and fleas are both present year round across the United States. In our warmer Southern climates, our pets are even more vulnerable, in fact South Carolina ranks in the top ten for heartworm infection. So please, for the sake of your pet, discuss affordable options with us to protect your pet.
Why should my pet be spayed or neutered?
Primarily, we want to prevent the deaths of thousands of unwanted pets. But did you know that paying or neutering your pets can greatly reduce their risk of developing many types of cancer later in life? Spaying your animals will also reduce/eliminate the chances of your pets developing a uterine infection called a pyometra which can be a life threatening condition. It may also decrease or even eliminate unwanted behaviors such as aggression or running off. Spaying or neutering your pets is also the only way to do away with unwanted litters of puppies or kittens without placing an extra burden on animal shelters.
Why does my pet need dental cleaning?
In short, to extend the quality of life for your pet. Bad breath, inflamed gums, plaque and tartar buildup, and loose teeth are all of great concern when it comes to the health of your animal’s mouth. Regular checkups and cleanings can help eliminate bad breath and pain when eating. We can also discuss what treats, toys and dental products you can use to help keep your pet’s dental health in check.
