We take what we do seriously, so our Columbus veterinarians and staff are constantly updating their skills by attending seminars and continuing education meetings. By limiting our practice to dog and cat care, we stay on top of the latest techniques and developments. No matter what your pet’s need, our veterinarians have the veterinary skills, combined with true compassion for all animals to resolve the problem.
The core of a complete pet wellness program is pet vaccines. Our veterinarians firmly believe that all cats and dogs need vaccinations on a regular basis. The reason is clear – pets without proper vaccines are defenseless against dangerous and deadly diseases. Pets older than 1 year of age need to be vaccinated yearly, while puppies and kittens need a series of vaccinations to build up their immune systems gradually. A complete vaccination protocol consists of the core vaccines and any non-core vaccines that may provide additional protection depending on your pet’s life style.
The core vaccines for dogs are:
Core vaccines for cats are:
During your pet's wellness exam, one of our veterinarians will advise you on the non-core vaccines that your pet may need for additional protection.
All pet owners are wary when their pet needs surgery, especially about the prospect of anesthesia. The anesthesia products our veterinarians use are proven to be pet-safe. Plus, your pet is closely monitored throughout the entire surgical procedure. Most surgeries are done in our fully equipped operating room. Our veterinarians and veterinary assistants wear surgical caps and masks, sterile gowns and gloves for all major surgeries. The surgeries we perform include:
Finding a lost pet is like looking for a needle in the proverbial haystack, but for microchipped pets, the chances of being found improve dramatically. The procedure is simple: one of the veterinarians inserts a grain or rice-sized microchip under the skin between the pet's shoulders. The chip's data code is matched with your contact information and stored in a database so should your pet become lost, the scanned data off the chip will match up with yours. A relatively inexpensive procedure, we encourage all pet owners to avoid the potential heartbreak of losing their beloved companions.
The bottom line: spay and neuter surgeries for pets not only provide enormous health and behavioral benefits, they also serve the greater good by reducing the number of unwanted pets. For females, an ovariohysterectomy or spaying prevents uterine and ovarian cancer as well as a reduced chance of mammary tumors and mammary cancer. Neutered males can never develop testicular cancer and undesirable behaviors such as roaming, spraying, marking and aggression are significantly reduced.
Pets' mouths are the entry point to the rest of the body. Poor dental care can result in serious and even life-threatening conditions such as heart disease. Our dental care program involves routine, yearly cleanings as well as advanced care for peridontal disease, infections, and gingivitis.
Our services don't end there. Our Columbus veterinary team also provides pet owners with:
