Exams and Consultations
Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Dental disease is very important, though many owners have absolutely no idea just how important it is really is. Most people think of bad breath and discolored teeth. However, it is worse than that! It can cause liver problems, along with heart and kidney disease. Dental disease affects a lot more animals than most people realize, especially as they age. Eighty percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three have some sort of dental problems. Here at The Pet Doctors of Sherman Oaks, dental problems are one of the most common health problems that we see here in City, State Even though we see so many dental problems, owners still don’t understand how important it is for them to take care of their pets’ teeth. It is really important for them to regularly brush their pets’ teeth and give them dental chews. We also recommend regular visits with us to assess their overall dental health. There may be times when your pet may require a professional cleaning under anesthesia because we can reach areas where you are unable to reach at home with a toothbrush!
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to over-feed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.
Pets’ nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for his or her lifestyle.
