Ask us about our Class IV Laser!!!

In December 2011 we added a Class IV Therapy Laser to our arsenal of tools to treat:

          -Pain Relief

          - Wound Healing

          - Arthritis

          - Cystitis

          - Otitis

          - Intervertebral Disc Disease

          - Skin Infections/Hot spots

          - Degenerative Joint Disease

          - Lick Granulomas

          - Periodontal Disease/Gingivitis

The therapy laser can help ease the pain of arthritis without the use of medication or surgery.  It also speeds healing following surgery or an injury.  This FDA-approved laser uses deep-penetrating light waves to stimulate both the release of endorphines to ease pain and increase circulation to reduce inflammation and expedite healing.  We can finally improve your pet's quality of life without the use of oral medications and the unwanted side effects that those bring.  We use it with nearly every surgery patient that comes thru our door to ensure that they remain as comfortable as possible during their recovery.  If you are interested in learning more about this cutting-edge tool, please call to speak with one of our staff members. 


Introducing Sentinel, Parastar Plus

The warm weather is back and with that comes the reminder of heartworm, fleas and ticks!!! There have been a few changes this year in our recommendations. In years past we have recommended Heartgard Plus as your heartworm and intestinal parasite prevention and Frontline Plus for fleas and ticks. This year we would like to introduce you to Sentinel for your heartworm and intestinal parasite prevention. Heartgard has been very reliable in preventing heartworm disease and treating both roundworms and hookworms which are 2 intestinal parasites very common to this area. However, as we have seen a rise in the prevalence of whipworms, a very hearty intestinal parasite, we are now recommending Sentinel.  Sentinel is still as reliable in preventing heartworm disease and treating roundworm and hookworms, but they also have an additional de-worming medication to take care of any whipworms as well. Whipworms can be tricky to diagnose because they carry with them a low worm burden and only intermittently shed eggs, but they can cause hemorrhagic diarrhea if left untreated. 

For all your flea and tick concerns, we would also like to introduce you to Parastar Plus and  Nexgard. Both products have quicker kill time for both fleas and ticks (it only protects against fleas in cats) which means a much lower risk of any disease transmission for diseases such as Lymes, Anaplasma, Erlichia and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Vectra 3D works within 4-6 hours to kill fleas and ticks.  Parastar Plus has the quickest kill time of any veterinary recommended and FDA approved topical product.  It works within 1 hour to kill any fleas and ticks that may have found their way onto your pet.  Both products protect against multiple species of ticks that are prevelant in our region. Nexgard and Parastar Plus are perfect for dogs that spend a lot of time outdoor because it is more stable in the presence of sunlight and both are very safe to use. If you do have a household with cats and dogs, the manufacture does recommend keeping the cat away from the dog until the product has had time to dry.  The great thing about Nexgard is that is convenient in an chewable, tasty, oral form!! 

So next time you are in ask one of our staff memebers if Sentinel coupled with Parastar Plus or Nexgard is right for your pet!!!
