Annual Wellness Exams

Regular examinations keep your pet healthy. We recommend that all pets undergo a complete wellness exam at least once a year. Frequent routine exams help us identify and treat dog and cat diseases.

Puppy Care

Not only are we eager to meet your newest family member but we recommend a physical exam on any new puppy to ensure health issues are addressed as early as possible. We can help you avoid common house training mistakes, behavioral challenges, breed specific health problems and address food related questions. Please bring all pertinent medical paperwork and a fresh (within 8 hours) stool sample with you to your first appointment.

Kitten Care

Not only are we eager to meet your newest family member but we recommend a physical exam on any new kitten to ensure health issues are addressed as early as possible. We can help you avoid common house training mistakes, behavioral challenges, breed specific health problems and address food related questions. Please bring all pertinent medical paperwork and a fresh(within 8 hours) stool sample with you to your first appointment.

Vaccinations

At My Best Friend Veterinary Center, we provide quality care such as vaccinations to dogs and cats, giving them the same care we would give our own animals. We offer you reassurance and peace of mind as we educate you on vaccines and the diseases they prevent so your pet can stay happy and healthy for life.

Diagnostic Services

While regular wellness check-ups are vital, so are specialized tests for preventative screening or when you sense something is not right with your best friend. We utilize a wide range of diagnostic equipment including in-house digital radiology and a state-of-the-art laboratory.

Surgical Procedures

Surgical procedures often are a necessary component of your pet’s general health care plan. My Best Friend Veterinary Center provides the highest quality surgical care, recovery and pain management for your pet. Our clinic contains state-of-the-art surgical and anesthetic equipment to perform a variety of surgical procedures.

Dog & Cat Dentistry

Dental care is very important for cats and dogs. Plaque and tartar that build-up on your pet’s teeth can lead to gingivitis. Reddened, bleeding gums, difficulty chewing and bad breath are all signs of gingivitis. Untreated gingivitis can progress to a more advanced form of periodontal disease, including bacterial infections that, if left untreated, can cause the loss of teeth.

Digital Radiology

Radiology, or x-ray, is an effective diagnostic tool used to diagnose a variety of conditions in your dog or cat including orthopedic abnormalities, intestinal obstructions, organ enlargement, heart disease stages, and many other vital uses. At My Best Friend, we have invested in state-of-the-art digital radiography, which produces fast and extremely detailed x-ray pictures.

Pet Behavioral Counseling

Dogs and cats can suffer from a multitude of ailments ranging from severe phobias to aggressions. The first step in controlling these issues is to discuss them with your veterinarian to rule out any possible medical component. We strive to help our clients learn the real reasons for their pet’s behavior and then find realistic options for a treatment plan.

Pet Nutritional Counseling

Nutrition is one of the most important factors in maintaining your pet’s good health. Proper nutrients are necessary for every organ system in the body to function properly. Maintaining your pet’s ideal body weight can improve his or her life expectancy. Many gastrointestinal ailments can be linked to inappropriate diets, and many skin problems have a nutritional component to them.

Grooming

At My Best Friend Veterinary Center, we believe bathing & grooming to be essential to a healthy pet. Since your groomer usually sees your dog more often than your vet, having your dog groomed at our clinic can be a first line of defense for spotting lumps, infections or other abnormalities that you may not notice. Our veterinarians can even address these issues while your pet is here that day.

Senior Pet Care

Did you know that pets are considered “seniors” by age seven? As your pet ages, his or her medical needs change. Wellness examinations, blood work, and dietary counseling all are important steps you can take toward keeping your senior pet healthy and happy. My Best Friend’s senior wellness exams are specially designed for your older pet’s good health.
