Pets need preventative care in order to avoid serious illnesses and diseases. We recommend that all pet owners bring their pets in to the veterinarian at least once annually for their pet exams. This preventative visit helps Dr. Cundiff determine the status of your pet’s health. Wellness exams helps catch chronic conditions and diseases in their early stages, so your pet can get the treatment he or she needs in order to stay healthy. In addition, our preventative services include spay and neuter services, dental care, pet vaccinations and dietary counseling.
Pet dentistry stops the spread of gum disease and can stop the spread of infection throughout your pet’s body. Our pet dentistry services include tooth extractions, dental examinations, dental cleanings and more.
Sometimes pets need emergency care. If your pet is involved in an accident, ingests a toxic substance or gets into a fight with another animal, you may need to bring your pet to the vet for stitches, medicine and more. We provide emergency care services to pets in Lexington KY.
Microchipping for Cats and Dogs
Unfortunately, our pets sometimes find their ways out of our homes and into unfamiliar territory. The best odds for you getting them back come from your pet being microchipped. If your pet is microchipped and they get taken to a vet or humane society, it will be easy for someone there to look up the chip ID and help get your pets back to you. We can help with both chip implants and registration, so you won’t have to worry about losing your furry friends.
Shots & Vaccinations
Just like humans, pets need vaccinations to prevent harmful diseases that are very expensive or difficult to treat. Your pets need a variety of vaccines to protect against dangerous conditions like rabies, parvovirus, distemper, and hepatitis. The age of your pet will determine what shots are needed and how often they need to be administered. Rabies vaccines are the most common, and most states require by law that your dog is vaccinated for rabies. We can help make sure your pets are protected from these harmful diseases by creating a vaccine schedule for your loved ones.
When your pet is suffering from an injury or a disease like cancer, surgical procedures may be necessary to help your pet make a recovery. We provide anesthesia to pets before surgery to help keep them calm and safe throughout the surgery. When your pet’s procedure is finished, we’ll ensure you know how to care for your pet at home through the recovery.
Spaying and Neutering
Along with preventing unwanted puppies and kittens, spaying and neutering your pets offers lots of health and behavioral benefits. Spaying can help prevent breast tumors and uterine infections in female animals. For male pets, neutering can help prevent some prostate problems and testicular cancer. Neutered pets are less likely to miss behave or roam away from home as well. Come to Hartland Park to have your pets spayed and neutered to prevent future costly problems.
Heartworm Prevention & Treatment
Preventative heartworm medication needs to be given every month if you’re using a pill or topical method or every six months for an injection. Heartworms are very dangerous to your pets and can often be asymptomatic, so it’s important to regularly administer their preventative medicine and get them tested. Heartworm treatment is much more expensive and agonizing for your pet, so it’s important to prevent it if you can. We can help you choose the right method of prevention for your pet.
