Frequently Asked Questions

How often should my pet have a check-up?

We recommend that dogs and cats come in for a visit every 6 months.  Dogs and Cats live a much faster life than we do, and are very good at hiding illnesses.  By evaluating your pet every 6 months we can attempt to catch diseases in the early stages.

Why has my dog who is house trained started having accidents?

This could be a sign of a common infection of the urinary track (UTI). We recommend that you collect a sample of urine and bring it in to our office for testing. Based on these results, you may need to bring your pet to our office for a prescription.

Why does my pet shake their head often and scratch at their ears?

This can be a sign of an ear infection. The best way to determine the condition is to schedule an office visit.

How often should I brush my pet?

Depending on the type of hair, you should try to brush your pet’s hair at least twice a week to ensure that loose hair is captured, tangles and knots are removed, and to reduce the need to scratch. This is something special that you can do for your pet since they do so much for you.
