Plus, it keeps the animal population down and avoids pet homelessness. Turn to Edmonton South Animal Hospital for spay and neuter services.
Just like humans, pets should have a wellness exam once a year. It’s also a great time to update your pet with both core and non-core vaccinations. During a wellness exam, our vets perform a thorough examination from toe to tail. The check the abdomen, eyes, ears, lungs and skin. The sooner we identify any problems, the sooner we can recommend treatment. Keep your pet healthy with a regular pet wellness exam.
Our pet dental exams and treatment will keep your pet healthier. It’s not uncommon for pets to have periodontal disease from built-up plaque and tartar. Periodontal disease in animals can cause problems with the kidneys and liver. Our veterinarians remove this bacteria and polish any rough spots during a pet dental cleaning. They also perform extractions when needed.
If your pet needs emergency surgery or elective surgery, we monitor your companion carefully. We monitor pulse, heart rate, respiration rate and body temperature with state-of-the-art equipment. We also provide pet owners with detailed instructions for after care. Pet owners are always welcomed to call us if a problem should arise.
