Dogs and cats should be given all the necessary vaccinations as soon as possible and must follow their initial vaccination. Our clinic will make sure to provide affordable immunizations and other preventive services.
If your pet is at risk due to the environment in which he or she spends the majority of his or her time such as a backyard dog that loves to spend part of the day outside, hence heartworm testing is also recommended.
EXERCISE AND DIET

Nowadays disease such as diabetes is becoming quite common in pets. The disorder is most common among obese cats, male cats over eight years old, and pets on a diet high in carbohydrates. Diabetes mellitus is a disorder that results when cells develop a resistance to insulin, a hormone that aids the entry of glucose into cells. This cause a build-up of glucose levels in the bloodstream.
Another disease is asthma which is very similar to asthma in humans, which is a chronic inflammation of the airways in the lungs. It is assumed that asthma attacks in pets can be brought on as part of an allergic reaction. When the pet breathes in allergens, this triggers an immune response causing inflammation and results in the irritation, swelling, production, and constriction of mucus or fluid within the airways. This severe reaction, known as an asthma attack, can be suffocating making it difficult for pets to breathe. That’s why proper exercise and diet check is a must.
