Primary Care Services for Pets

Preventative Care

A physical exam is recommended every 12 months for dogs and cats under 7 years, and every 6 months for older dogs and cats.

 

A physical exam is an assessment designed to discover and diagnose ailments, ideally before they have significantly advanced. Each animal is different and has different needs.  Together, we will decide what vaccine schedule is best for your pet.

 

Accupuncture

Dr. Levine is certified in veterinary medical acupuncture.  Using small needles, she can relieve pain, and help treat orthopedic and neurological disorders, like arthritis and paresis/paralysis.  

Sick Visits

Whether your pet is experiencing unexplained vomiting, limping, or just seems a little off, we'll will work with you and your pet to figure out what is wrong and how best to treat it. 

 

If further treatment is required, we can refer you to an urgent care hospital or a local clinic for more complicated diagnostic tests and treatments such as x-rays and surgery.

Vet for the Day

If you have a facility that has many pets, we can come for the day to see multiple patients.  This service has proved very useful for assisted living facilities or businesses where animals come to work.

Primary Care vs. Urgent Care vs. Emergency Care

Primary Care: 

Primary care for pets focuses on routine and preventive healthcare to maintain an animal’s overall health and prevent illnesses. This includes regular check-ups, vaccinations, parasite  prevention, nutrition counseling, and behavior

consultations. Primary care veterinarians develop  long-term relationships with pets and their owners, providing ongoing wellness care and  monitoring for any signs of health issues.

 

Urgent Care:

Urgent care for pets addresses immediate medical concerns that require prompt attention but  are not life-threatening emergencies. Common reasons for seeking urgent care include injuries,  sudden illnesses, allergic reactions, vomiting, diarrhea, and minor wounds. Urgent care clinics  typically offer extended hours and are equipped to handle urgent medical situations that cannot  wait for a regular appointment with a primary care veterinarian. They provide diagnostic  services, treatments, and medications to address the pet's immediate needs.

Emergency Care: 

Emergency veterinary clinics provide critical care services for pets experiencing life-threatening  emergencies outside of regular veterinary clinic hours. These facilities are equipped with  advanced medical equipment and staffed with veterinarians and veterinary technicians trained  to handle urgent and emergent situations. Emergency vet clinics offer a wide range of services  to stabilize and treat pets in crisis. This includes emergency surgery, wound care, diagnostic  imaging (such as X-rays and ultrasounds), fluid therapy, oxygen support, and pain  management. They also provide intensive care monitoring for pets requiring overnight  observation.
