At Legacy Veterinary Clinic, we want to create happy healthy lives for your pets. Our goal is to prevent illnesses. We realize that your pets cannot share with you how they are feeling, and many times they mask their illnesses. We offer variety of services with the goal of helping you to provide a healthy happy life to your pets. Our Preventive Care services include:
We offer complete head to tail exam to detect any minor changes in your pet’s health status. Prevention is key to limiting the spread of disease.
Individualized Vaccination and Parasite Control
Every pet is unique. Based on your pets age, genetics inheritance, geographic location, life style and current health, they require individualized vaccinations and parasite prevention protocols. We will offer your pets individualized vaccination and parasitic control based on the lifestyle, illnesses, and the risk factors for you and your family.
Nutrition and Weight Management
As Hippocrates once said, “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. By keeping your pet’s individual needs and lifestyle in mind, we give you options to prevent and treat imbalances in your pet’s body.
Dental disease is the most common ailment of small animals and is treatable. Unfortunately, our pets cannot point to their dental pain with their paws, and in fact they hide their pain and discomfort well with dental disease. We can help you treat and prevent dental disease and enhance your pet’s overall well being.
Our pets age much faster than humans, and often our pets do not show symptoms until a disease is in the advanced stages. We want to discover any potential illnesses as early as possible to help your senior pets age as comfortably as possible. Let’s work together to make this stage of your pets life enjoyable.
We strive to enhance the bond between you and your pets. We realize that behavioral problems of your pet can be very stressful for you. We help you identify the source of the behavioral issue and design a treatment plan to improve your pet’s quality of life.
Veterinary Dermatology and Allergy Testing
Proper skin care is an essential part of your pet’s health and happiness. When your pet experiences a dermatological problem, he or she can become extremely uncomfortable. Although the cause of pet’s skin problems can be tough to determine without the help of a veterinary expert, the clinical signs are easy to identify. Look for excessive redness, scratching or biting at skin, sores, dandruff, hair loss, and shaking of the head. If you noted any skin problems in your pet, we can help you understand the source of the problem and administer the proper treatment.
Micro-chipping and Identification
Unfortunately, any pets, even your indoor cat, can go missing. A microchip is a reliable form of identifying your pet. The procedure is relatively painless and is very fast and is done without any sedation. Animal shelters and veterinary clinics are equipped with scanners and can read microchips and identify the animal’s owner, address and phone number. This information will reunite you with your pet if it is ever lost.
Pet Insurance Advice
Pets are part of our families and we want to keep them as healthy as possible. Pet insurance can reduce the financial stress if your pet becomes ill and needs extended veterinary care. Having pet insurance can allow you to never be in a situation where you cannot allow your veterinarian to give your pet the best chance they have at a long healthy life. There are many options for pet insurance. We can help you decide which option is best for you.
Pet Travel Advice
We understand that travelling with your pets is a significant event. There are so many different policies and many diseases that you should familiarize yourself with. We can help make your pets travel as easy as possible.
