Our Veterinary Services
Wellness and Preventive Medicine
We recommend annual wellness exams for adult dogs and cats between one and seven years old. Puppies, kittens, and senior pets should have more frequent examinations. At each check-up, we record your pet’s weight and temperature, ask about eating habits and exercise, and discuss parasite control. Our veterinarians also check for specific health issues.
Diagnostics, Internal Medicine and Therapeutic Services
We use a variety of technological tools within our clinic to efficiently find the source of disease in pets, which allows us to begin treatment more quickly.
Whether you have an older pet with age-relating inflammation and pain, or a younger pet with an acute injury or sprain, laser therapy may be an option.
Does your dog growl, bark excessively or snarl? Is your cat suddenly urinating outside of the litterbox? We can help get to the bottom of what is causing these behaviors and help alleviate them.
Whether your pet is suffering from allergies, recurrent ear infections, or irritation of the skin, our team can diagnose and treat these issues and help address their underlying cause.
Have you heard the saying, “You are what you eat!” This applies for our animal companions, too! We provide counseling on the best diet to keep your pet at a healthy weight, maximize the nutrition they are receiving, and help keep them feeling their best!
Radiosurgery is a less traumatic form of doing surgery with less bleeding, tissue trauma, and subsequent pain.
Senior Pet Wellness
Although the age at which dogs and cats are considered a senior can vary by breed, we like to start seeing pets for bi-annual exams around age seven. Like people, older pets have an increased risk of kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, senility, and general weakness. Staying on top of these issues helps improve the quality of life for your pet in the senior years. Mobility challenges and behavior changes are also more common with older pets.
End of Life Care
All of us at Toluca Dog and Cat Hospital understand how important your pets are to you and your family – they’re furry family to us, too. If your pet has experienced a recent trauma or is suffering a long term illness, we are here to help you sort through the various medical options best suited for your family and your pet, or if the most compassionate decision is to provide your companion with a peaceful and dignified end of life.
We offer palliative care, pet hospice, and when the time comes to say goodbye to your pet, we offer euthanasia.
