Wellness and Preventive Care
Wellness examinations are an essential part of preventive health care for pets in all life stages, from puppies and kittens to senior pets. They allow us to detect changes such as weight gain or loss, dental disease, and other subtle differences you may not notice at home. Many diseases become more dangerous and easier to contract as pets get older, so routine wellness exams and blood panels are particularly important for helping us detect diseases in senior pets before those diseases become serious problems.
No matter your pet’s life stage, we will start each physical by examining your pet from head to toe. We will ask you questions about their diet, activity level, or any concerns you may have. Based on that information, we will work with you to come up with a vaccine schedule, routine bloodwork recommendations, and nutritional choices that perfectly fit your pet’s age and your lifestyle.
Wellness programs will be offered in order to make preventive care affordable and accessible to owners.
Whether performing a routine surgery or an emergency procedure, you can have confidence that the veterinarians and staff at Fish Creek Animal Hospital will work hard to ensure each procedure is thorough, done with the utmost expertise, and is as stress-free as possible for both you and your pet. Please review the surgical procedures we provide below.
Spays/Neuters: We believe in the importance of neutering or spaying cats and dogs of any age. Ideally done early in life, this surgery can provide them with a long and healthy life by eliminating the potential for certain serious illnesses down the line. This procedure also helps with pet overpopulation and the euthanasia of unwanted strays.
Soft Tissue Surgery: We perform many different types of soft tissue surgeries. Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone. These surgeries can provide many benefits to pets. A few of our common soft tissue surgeries include mass removals and bladder stone removals (cystotomies).
Foreign Body Surgery: This is an emergency surgical procedure in which we quickly work to remove the object before it causes any damage. Foreign bodies are a potentially deadly issue that must be addressed urgently. If you suspect that your pet has ingested a foreign object, please contact us immediately.
Orthopedic Surgery: Orthopedic surgeries are those involving bone. We perform certain procedures on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us to discuss your pet’s specific needs.
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. This is an excellent reminder of how important your pet’s dental condition is for their overall health. Strong oral hygiene will also help prevent infections that can spread through the bloodstream to affect major organs, such as your pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart.
Signs that your pet may be experiencing dental problems include difficulty chewing or swallowing, red or bleeding gums, listlessness or disinterest in food, drooling, and failure to groom in cats. Fortunately, the disease progresses slowly, and there are actions we can take. If you should notice any of these symptoms in your pet, make an appointment for dental pet services at our animal hospital as soon as possible.
Once we examine your pet, we may determine that a dental cleaning is necessary. This includes putting your pet under general anesthesia so we can thoroughly clean their teeth. We will take dental X-rays to make sure the teeth are healthy beneath the gum line as well. If we notice any broken teeth or abscesses, we may recommend extraction of the entire tooth.
At Fish Creek Animal Hospital, we will work with you to determine the best dental care route for you and your pet. Please reach out to us to discuss your pet’s dental health!
At Fish Creek Animal Hospital, we understand that pets won’t always tell us what is wrong or where it hurts. For this reason, our hospital is fully equipped with an in-house laboratory, digital radiology, and ultrasound. Using this equipment, we are able to diagnose your pet quickly.
In-House Laboratory: Our in-house laboratory can provide results within minutes, which helps our veterinarians create an optimal real-time treatment plan for your pet. We can screen pets for abnormalities like pancreatitis, kidney disease, heartworm disease, urinary tract infections, and so much more! This may save valuable time in critically ill pets and guide our team to giving your pet the best outcome possible.
Radiography: A radiograph (X-ray) is a type of photograph that looks inside the body and reveals information that may not be discernible from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate your pet’s internal organs like the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as bones. When it comes to diagnosing your pet accurately, radiology can be an extremely valuable tool in our diagnostic arsenal.
Ultrasonography: Ultrasonography, or ultrasound, is a diagnostic imaging technique similar to radiography (X-rays) and is often used in conjunction with radiography and other diagnostics. It allows us to visualize certain organs very thoroughly, including the heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, spleen, and intestines.
