Wellness Care


Wellness Care is the cornerstone of care at Western Hills Pet Hospital. A healthy pet is a happy pet and the best way to keep your pet happy and healthy is through regular preventive care. Your pet ages more quickly than people do and they often hide symptoms of disease and pain, so twice-yearly exams are very important to make sure we catch any problems early. Vaccines and regular parasite control keep your pet from suffering from many preventable diseases. Our wellness plans include the preventive care your pet needs at a fraction of the cost.

Dental Care


Yearly dental cleanings are necessary for most pets over the age of 3 in order to keep their teeth and gums healthy. Dental disease is not only painful, it allows bacteria into the blood stream which then settles in the kidneys, liver, and valves of the heart causing premature disease. By keeping your pet’s teeth healthy, not only are we keeping your pet from painful gum disease, we are also helping them live a longer and healthier life. All of our dental cleanings are done under general anesthesia, allowing us to do a full oral exam, complete ultrasonic scaling of the teeth, polishing and fluoride treatment.

Laboratory


Our clinic offers a full in-house laboratory so that we can offer same day (often in 15 minutes or less) results on internal organ function tests including liver, kidney, pancreas, blood sugar, electrolytes, and red and white blood cells. Our in-house lab also includes urinalysis, fecal parasite checks, ear cytology looking for ear mites, yeast or bacteria, heart worm checks, parvo test, etc. Any tests that we are not able to perform in-house, we send to Idexx and usually will have results within 1-2 days.

Digital X-rays


X-rays allow us to take a look inside your pet to help diagnose internal problems. Our high definition digital x-rays give us answers within minutes while you wait. We also have the ability to email the x-rays to you for your records or to an outside specialist for confirmation of any problems.

Surgery


All of our surgeries are performed in a sterile surgical suite. We have the ability to do most any surgery your pet may need including many orthopedic surgeries. Before any anesthesia we check your pet’s blood work to make sure liver, kidneys, red and white blood cells are all functioning properly. While under anesthesia we give your pet IV fluids to keep them hydrated and their blood pressure at a safe level. We also monitor blood pressure, oxygen saturation, ECG and we use Sevoflurane gas anesthesia which is the safest on the veterinary market.

Routine Exams

Routine physical exams are important every 6 months to make sure your pet is healthy. Pets age quicker than humans, and they tend to hide symptoms of disease. An exam every 6 months allows us to diagnose problems sooner and start treatment before they become bigger problems.

Intestinal Parasite Fecal Exam

Pets should be checked for intestinal parasites such as Roundworms, Hookworms, Whipworms, Tapeworms, and Coccidia. Several of these parasites are zoonotic which means that they can also infect people. We check fecal samples twice a year for the health of your pet, and to make sure that you and your human family will not become infected with these intestinal parasites.

Bloodwork

Routine bloodwork helps make sure your pet is healthy on the inside. Pets cannot tell us when something is wrong and they often hide symptoms of disease. This yearly test helps us to find problems early and hopefully, keep your pet healthy.

Fleas And Ticks

Fleas And Ticks

Fleas and ticks are not only irritating to pets, they can cause many different types of disease. Fleas are easy to prevent but can be very difficult to get rid of once they move into your home.

This product kills fleas within 60 minutes, paralyzes ticks before they have a chance to feed, and repels mosquitoes.

Diet

Diet

There is nothing more important for your pet than what you feed them. At Western Hills Pet Hospital we strongly recommend Hills Science Diet or Royal Canin diets. Both of these companies perform lots of research and have great quality control processes in place to make sure that the ingredients they place in your pet’s food is the best and safest it can be. Below are some websites that will give you more information about petfood.

Heartworms

Heartworms

Heartworms are worms that live in the chambers of the heart and are transmitted by mosquitoes. Heartworm disease is easy to prevent with a monthly preventative tablet or an injection of Proheart every 6 months. Year round heartworm prevention is very important because it is very difficult and expensive to treat your pet if they become infected with heartworms. Even though cats are not natural hosts for heartworms, they can also become infected. Here are a few links to give you more information about heartworms, how they are transmitted, and how to keep them from infecting your pet.
