Anal Gland Expression
Anal sacs (also called anal glands) are two small glands just inside your pet’s anus. The material secreted into these sacs is thick, oily, stinky, and is commonly described as smelling fishy. Most wild animals can voluntarily empty these glands for scent marking or self-defense (like a skunk might do); however, domestic animals have largely lost their ability to empty these sacs voluntarily. Our veterinarians will help make your pet more comfortable by emptying their anal sacs.

Feline Leukemia & AIDS Tests
Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus are two highly contagious viruses found in our feline communities. FELV and FIV have a wide range of effects on the feline body and deplete the immune system. These two viruses are easily spread from cat to cat and are not curable once infected. Infection is mainly spread from contact with infected secretions such as saliva and can be transferred via blood, urine, feces, and breast milk. The FELV/FIV test is a straightforward test that requires a small blood sample.
Our veterinarians perform health examinations for dogs and cats and will be happy to assist you in preparing your pet’s health documents. Travel document requirements vary widely by country, so it is best to do some homework before making any arrangements.

Senior Pet Care
Regular wellness visits are important for every stage of your pet’s life, so don’t forget to keep your senior pet’s scheduled wellness appointments. Your senior pet’s wellness examination is also your chance to have us address any of your questions or concerns about your pet. We welcome your questions and encourage you to be involved in decisions regarding your pet’s health care.
Your pet’s dental care is not different than your own dental care; it requires constant maintenance and oversight. Sometimes, an anesthetic dental is necessary, which involves scraping and removing tartar build-up, polishing the teeth, and applying a protective fluoride coating. Full mouth dental radiographs (x-rays) are also taken to evaluate the health of the teeth under the gum line.
Spay & Neuter
We prefer to neuter and spay dogs between the ages of 5-1/2 and 9-1/2 months, earlier for the small dogs and later for the large and giant breeds. Pets that have been spayed or neutered are less likely to get into trouble because they are less likely to wander away. We know that spaying before the first heat will give the female dogs a 95% reduction in their chances of developing mammary tumors; they cannot then develop an infection of the uterus (a pyometra) uterine cancers. Neutered male dogs are at a much-reduced risk of prostate disease, perianal tumors, and testicular cancer.
Cats are usually spayed or neutered between 5-1/2 and 6-1/2 months. Cats in heat or pregnant can also be spayed.
