General Medicine and Services

Examinations - At Town East Animal Hospital we offer comprehensive examinations that help evaluate the overall health of your pet. Regular physical examinations can detect problems in their early stages, before they become serious illnesses requiring prolonged treatment. Preventative medicine is the easiest, least expensive and most important way to keep your pet healthy. Early detection ensures prompt action that may solve the problem before serious consequences occur.

Vaccines - Immunizations are a medical procedure and a crucial part of your pet's health care. Some immunizations are recommended yearly while others are given every three years, usually administered during an annual exam. We work with you to develop an individual vaccine protocol that best suits your pet's needs.

Nutritional Counseling - Proper diet is an important part of your pet's health. Should your pet need a new diet due to health concerns or you are just looking for a healthy alternative to your current brand, we offer individual consultations and nutritional plans to help keep your pet healthy. You will never see pet food displays in our lobby. The idea is - How can we offer believable advice if we are selling pet food?

Behavior Counseling - Pets often show illness or anxiety through improper or changed behavior. Let our staff help you determine what is appropriate behavior and what you can do to change inappropriate behavior.

Dermatology - Hair loss and constant scratching can indicate fleas, food allergies or other more serious skin conditions. We provide specialized dermatological services to all of our patients including skin cultures and scrapings.

Dentistry - Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet's health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. Our veterinary staff regularly performs oral exams, cleanings and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive health care goals.

Some Signs of Dental Problems include:

  • Bad breath – one of the first signs of dental disease
  • A yellowish-brown crust of plaque on the teeth near the gum line
  • Red and swollen gums
  • Pain or bleeding when your pet eats or when the mouth or gums are touched
  • Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
  • Loose or missing teeth

Dental problems, if left untreated, can often lead to larger systemic problems in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart or liver.

Baths and Nail Trims - Hygiene is important. We offer a full line of shampoo's and skin care products and all of our staff is trained to do nail trims and give skin care advice.
