Just like young children need to see their doctors more often, young pets need more frequent checks to assure that they are growing and developing as they should. During basic wellness checks, we check vital such as breathing and heart rate and monitor their expected growth rate for their size and breed. If anything is concerning to you or us, such as your pet's weight or energy levels, or if there are behavioral issues we can discuss with you the best way to approach them in order to achieve a better balance with your family.
Wellness visits remain necessary for adult pets as well. Some are prone to allergies, or may have digestive issues, ear infections, or may require care after obtaining a wound. At our Houston Clinic near Cypress Station, we work with you and your pet to figure out the best way to approach each of these conditions and restore your pet to be as healthy as they can be.
They say, "the best defense is a good offense" and that's true whether you're on the playing field or taking care of your pets. Several vaccinations are required or strongly recommended in order to provide your pet immunity against conditions such as rabies, parvo, or feline leukemia. By seeing the vet regularly, your pet also stands a better chance at warding off heartworm and other parasites and can help with the maintenance of their dental health as well.
There are many benefits to your pet and your community that come from having your pet spayed or neutered. The most obvious is that it prevents unwanted breeding of your dog or cat. The practice can also reduce the risk of some cancers in both cats and dogs and limit many behavioral issues such as wandering, howling, and some aggression. At our Houston veterinary clinic, our experienced vets can discuss when the best time to take on this operation may be and how to best manage your pet's recovery from surgery.
From the time your pet joins your family until their last day they need to count on you to be their champion, which means providing them with whatever type of care they require. While standard services such as spay/neuter surgery and keeping up with vaccinations are important for any pet, some pets need something a little extra. At Veteran's Memorial Drive Animal Hospital we provide a variety of holistic and alternative therapy options that many other area vets don't offer. Some of these include
