What to Expect with Our Vet
The relationship between your pet and your veterinarian should last a lifetime, so it's important to choose one who is caring and experienced in all aspects of veterinary care. At Hartland Park Animal Hospital our entire veterinary team is committed to giving you the finest in patient care as well as the best in convenient client services. Our equipment is all state of the art, and it allows us to give our furry patients the kind of care they need to ensure long and happy lives.
Pet Wellness Care
We believe that preventative care is the very best way to make sure your pet stays healthy, so regular pet wellness examinations are the cornerstone of our practice. This exam is a nose-to-tail checkup that includes:
- Weighing and measuring to make sure your pet isn't in danger of becoming obese
- A thorough dental examination including teeth, tongue, gums, and mouth. We'll check for infection, tartar, and any other oral hygiene issues
- Checking for parasites, both inside and out
- Looking at your pet's ears to rule out ear mites or infection
- A view of your pet's skin and fur to look for nutritional or allergy problems
More Preventative Medical Procedures
The annual wellness checkup is just the beginning of our preventative veterinary medicine. Every pet that comes into our office will receive a number of vaccines. We'll begin with core vaccines, which every animal receives, then move on to non-core ones which are only administered to those animals that need them according to their environment or lifestyle.
Parasites are a problem for almost every pet, and we administer medications such as topical drops for flea and tick prevention as well as monthly heartworm medication for your pet's internal health.
We feel very strongly that one of the most important veterinary procedures we can do with pets is to spay or neuter them as early as possible. Not only does neutering and spaying prevent unwanted litters, but they eliminate the chance of your pet contracting certain types of deadly cancers. Simply put, animals that are spayed or neutered live longer and healthier lives, which is the goal of everyone on our team.
The Right Team for Your Pet
It's important that you choose a veterinarian you can have a good working relationship with. Our veterinarian, Dr. Lee Cundiff, is calm and caring, with the perfect personality for dealing with pets of any temperament. He's always willing to spend extra time to explain the procedures your pet will experience. If a specialized emergency happens, our vet will be happy to refer you to a specialist to care for your pet and will offer post-operative care to help your dog or cat to recover as quickly as possible.
