Through routine check-ups, we can identify medical issues that affect your pet's quality of life, test and treat for parasites, detect early signs of hidden illness, and recommend vaccinations that may be due. Regular wellness visits are important for every stage of your pet's life - schedule yours today and let's work together to protect and care for your fur babies.
Each year, thousands of pets go missing. This simple form of identification can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely. Microchipping takes only a few minutes and is very safe. Young puppies and kittens can receive microchips, but even if your pet is already an adult, you should consider microchipping.
Caroline Vet Clinic offers the latest in laboratory technology for convenient, in-house testing to screen for parasites and other underlying issues, and evaluate your pet's health on a more comprehensive level. We offer blood, fecal, urine, and skin tests to help us treat a multitude of health problems.
Laser therapy provides pain relief by using a deep-penetrating light that releases endorphins and stimulates injured cells to heal faster. This can allow your pet to heal faster after surgery or injury, ease pain and improve mobility for geriatric patients, and help cure disorders such as lick granulomas, chronic ear infections, and moist dermatitis. Other common disorders that benefit from laser therapy include: arthritic conditions, intervertebral disc disease, pyotraumatic dermatitis, degenerative joint disease, degloving injuries, dermatological conditions, periodontal disease, gingivitis, otitis, and more.
Pets today can live longer, healthier lives thanks to vaccines that help protect them from deadly infectious diseases. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines and should be administered to all pets, while others may be recommended based on your pet's risk for exposure to disease or other factors. Protecting your pet is Dr. Arion's primary goal, so you can trust us to develop an appropriate vaccine schedule and ongoing booster routine that accounts for your pet's lifestyle, overall health, risk for exposure to infectious disease and more.
If your companion is terminally ill and it's time to say goodbye, our team can arrange to perform the euthanasia procedure in the comfort of your home. Our goal is to make your pet's passing as peaceful and stress-free as possible.
