Our veterinary services in Sneads Ferry, NC include:
- Behavior Counseling. Pet behavior counseling is an important element of pet care that helps owners understand their pets and create a more harmonious partnership. Our skilled veterinarian can evaluate your pet's behaviors, identify underlying issues, and recommend strategies for successful modification. Counseling provides education on how to positively reinforce desired behaviors as well as how to respond to unwanted behaviors to prevent them from being repeated. Doing so can strengthen the bond between you and your pet, making for a happier and healthier home environment.
- Dentistry. Maintaining your pet’s oral hygiene is a key part of preventative care. In addition to professional cleanings, you should brush your pet’s teeth regularly and/or utilize oral care alternatives like oral rinses, water additives, and oral chews. Dental cleanings at home and a veterinary office can help prevent gum disease, bad breath, and tooth abscesses, which not only cause discomfort for your pet but can also lead to systemic infections and other health problems if left untreated.
- Dermatology. Pet dermatology is the field of veterinary medicine focused on treating skin, fur, and ear conditions in animals. Issues we commonly address include allergies, parasites, infection, and inflammation. Our veterinarian will use visual examination as well as specialized testing to diagnose the cause of your pet’s skin condition before prescribing the appropriate treatment.
- Examinations. Committing your pet to regular checkups can help catch health problems early on before they become more serious, life-threatening conditions. During these examinations, our veterinarian will assess your pet's overall health and look for any signs of disease or illness. We will typically check their temperature, pulse, and respiration rate, look in the ears and eyes, listen to the heart and lungs, feel for lumps or other abnormalities, and check joint movement and flexibility. We may also administer any necessary vaccinations.
- Microchipping. Microchipping is a form of permanent identification for animals. It involves inserting a tiny chip, about the size of a grain of rice, underneath your pet's skin between their shoulder blades. The chip stores an identifying number which can be read by scanners used by veterinary clinics and animal shelters. Microchipping provides peace of mind knowing that if your pet ever gets lost or separated from you, they can easily be identified and returned home safely.
- Nail Trims. Regularly trimming a pet's nails helps keep them healthy and prevents discomfort that can arise from their nails being too long. During a trim, the nails are carefully cut down with either clippers or a Dremel tool. It is important to be careful if you attempt to cut your pet's nails yourself, as it can be easy to accidentally cut into the quick, which is the nerve-filled area of the nail that contains blood vessels leading to the toes. If this happens, there will be some bleeding and pain, but it usually resolves without any lasting effects. Our veterinary staff is prepared to trim your pet’s nails if you are not able to do so.
- Nutritional Counseling. Pets have unique nutritional needs depending on breed, age, health conditions, and activity level. Nutritional counseling can help owners make sure their pets are receiving the food they need to ensure their long-term well-being. Our veterinarian can evaluate your pet’s circumstances and needs to develop a custom, optimal dietary plan.
- Spaying and Neutering. Spaying and neutering your dog or cat is an important part of responsible pet ownership. This simple procedure can help reduce the risk of certain diseases as well as unwanted pregnancies. Spaying and neutering can also bring added behavioral benefits to your dog or cat, such as decreased aggression and roaming tendencies. We routinely conduct these surgeries and will make every effort to make the procedure as straightforward and comfortable for your pet.
- Vaccinations. Getting your pet vaccinated protects them from numerous common and potentially fatal diseases, including rabies. Some vaccines are mandated by North Carolina law, while others are strongly recommended to keep your pet safe from avoidable illnesses. Other vaccinations may be optional, but keeping vaccinations current is important. We can evaluate the lifestyle and risk factors specific to your pet and recommend a tailored vaccination plan.
