Vaccinations are essential for preventing the spread of disease to and from your pet. We provide vaccinations to prevent against distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, rabies, and Lyme’s disease.
Staying on top of your pets vets vaccinations are an important part of there overall well-being.
The health of the mouth affects every aspect of a pet’s life. Bad breath can limit the amount of interaction you have with your pet. Just as your dentist recommends regular brushing and teeth cleanings, pet dentists also recommend regular dental care. While important, this can be difficult. At Advanced Veterinary Care, we have resources that will make the process easier and make getting dental cleanings affordable.
Pets experience pain just like people do. Modern medicines, nutrition, nutritional supplements, surgery, stem cell therapy, acupuncture, and physical therapy are only a few of the resources that we use in helping to alleviate and control pain. It’s our goal to make sure your pet is as comfortable as possible. Like people, every animal is different. As part of the pain relief process, we explore various methods to help determine what kind of pain relief works best for each individual.
Emergencies happen. Nobody plans for them. They are trying times that add stress to your life. That’s why we understand and try to make ourselves available during those times when you need us most. During business hours, we are available and capable to provide immediate walk in care. Please call (do not email) and we can help at a moment’s notice.
In addition, if your pet has had a recent procedure, they will be assigned a special code that you can use when contacting our clinic. It will give you direct access to Dr. Elton at any time for three days after your pet’s procedure.
Pet obesity is one of the top conditions diagnosed in veterinary medicine. We understand that any form of treatment must be acceptable to both your family and your pet. If it is difficult or not realistic, it will not work. Therefore, we work closely with you to help create individualized plans to help achieve success. With proper guidance, pet obesity can be easily overcome.
Behavior counseling is all about understanding why your pet does a specific behavior and then formulating a plan to help correct it. Better behavior contributes to a better, happier, more satisfying relationship between you and your pet. We have resources for making this process easy for your pet and your family.
We provide home hospice services for companion animals. Our emphasis is on helping pets experience terminal illness with dignity surrounded by their family. Pain management, palliative medical care, nutrition counseling, adequate hydration, issues of mobility and cleanliness, assessment of caretaker requirements and quality of life assessments are all part of what we offer.
Our internal medicine services include diagnosing, monitoring and managing diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, seizures, kidney failure, and heart failure. With our in-house laboratory, we can diagnose most diseases on the same day that the patient is brought in. We can also monitor and begin treatment immediately.
Chronic Pain Management and Counseling
Diabetes, arthritis, seizures and allergies are but a few of the diseases we cannot currently cure. But we can help your pet live longer and more comfortably, even with a chronic condition. Together we can develop a successful plan that will maximize the quality of your pet’s life, as well as your family’s.
Old age affects pets just like it does people. Changes in skin and coat, joint troubles, and vision problems are just some of the issues older pets have to deal with. We can help guide you through these types of issues and help improve the long-term comfort and quality of life for you and your pet.
Putting a beloved pet to sleep is a very difficult thing. We know how you feel and we do everything we can to help. By offering sensitive support and education during this difficult time, we try to make the transition easier and more comfortable for your family. Providing euthanasia services in your own home makes it more comfortable for your pet as well as the whole family.
Most routine surgeries (spaying, neutering, etc.) are performed by Dr. Elton on-site. More complex or unique surgeries are performed on-site by one of the board certified veterinary surgeons with whom we partner. Every procedure includes a pre-surgical exam, an intravenous catheter, general blood work on the day of the procedure, human grade anesthesia (administered by a highly-trained nurse anesthetist), fluid therapy, and post procedure care which includes patient warming. Our operating theater is completely sterile and contains state-of-the-art equipment for extensive monitoring of the patient during the procedure.
