Portland Pet Surgery, Pet Dental Care and Vaccinations
Pet Wellness Care
Our veterinarian Dr. Kenneth DeRemer recommends biannual wellness exams for all dogs, cats, pocket pets and small mammals. During this visit, Dr. DeRemer will perform a full physical, screen for parasites, and may conduct diagnostic blood work. These tests provide an important baseline measurement of your pet’s health. They also help our vet team identify potential health conditions before your pet shows obvious physical symptoms. Just like with humans, early intervention helps us better manage potential health problems.
The best way to keep your pet healthy is to ensure that he or she is up-to-date on all required vaccinations. In addition to Rabies vaccination, we may recommend the DHPP canine series (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus), and Leptospirosis. Dogs that frequent boarding and grooming salons should also be vaccinated against Bordetella (kennel cough). For cats, we offer the FVRCP series (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia) and feline leukemia vaccination (FELV). Our small animal clinic also provides the full puppy/kitten shot series starting at 8-10 weeks once an animal is weaned.
Pet Dental Care
Did you know that the majority of cats and dogs three years or older suffer from periodontal disease? Plaque build-up along a pet’s gum line can lead to serious oral health problems. Plaque can also push away the gum line, creating pockets for bacterial infection and gum disease. An annual pet dental cleaning is the best way to protect your pet from oral health problems. During this cleaning, our Portland veterinarian will scrape away plaque and polish your pet’s teeth. During a pet dental, we use advanced digital dental radiology equipment to look beneath the gums to detect otherwise invisible problems that can affect your pets health. Our friendly staff can also show pet owners the best way to properly brush a pets’ teeth at home.
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite is fully equipped for spay and neuter operations, orthopedic pet surgery, and pet dental surgery. We use radiography for precise diagnosis. Our veterinary hospital follows strict pain management protocols. Prior to administering anesthesia, we conduct diagnostic blood work. Following pet surgery, we will send your pet home with clear instructions for post-surgical care. We recognize that even routine operations like spay and neuter can be stressful for both pets and their owners. Our compassionate care and responsive customer service will help your pet’s surgery go as smoothly as possible.
