What does the comprehensive dental treatment plan include?

When should I consider dental cleanings for my pet?
If you suspect dental disease, schedule an oral exam and consultation. Based on our assessment results, we’ll recommend either a dental cleaning under anesthesia or a non-anesthetic option.
Why choose Healthy Pets Veterinary Care Boca North for pet boarding?
Our dedicated boarding service offers comprehensive care for your furry friend. From ensuring their physical well-being to providing social interactions, we strive to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable.
How can Healthy Pets Veterinary Care Boca North assist with my pet's itching and allergies?
Our dedicated team conducts comprehensive physical exams and advanced diagnostic tests to identify the underlying causes of your pet’s itching. If we suspect environmental allergies, we may suggest allergy testing to pinpoint allergens and tailor effective treatment plans for your pet’s well-being.
How do allergy shots work for pets?
Allergy shots, or hypo-sensitization, desensitize pets to allergens. While not an immediate cure, this targeted immunomodulation therapy can significantly reduce symptoms, minimize reliance on other medications, and address the root cause of allergies.
How does Healthy Pets Veterinary Care Boca North support the health of senior pets?
As pets age, we provide additional examinations and tests to ensure their ongoing well-being. Our tailored care approach involves regular physical exams and recommended diagnostics to keep your senior pet healthy and happy.
Pets age faster than humans, and health changes can occur rapidly. We suggest biannual exams for pets aged seven and older for better monitoring. Comprehensive physical exams help us detect conditions like heart disease, arthritis, cancer, and dental issues early.
What are the core vaccinations for dogs?
Core vaccinations for dogs include rabies, distemper/parvovirus combination, parainfluenza, and adenovirus. Non-core vaccines like Bordetella, leptospirosis, influenza, and Lyme may be recommended based on individual needs and risks.
How are cat vaccinations customized?
We follow American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) guidelines but tailor cat vaccinations to each cat’s needs and exposure risks. Core vaccinations cover panleukopenia, calicivirus, herpesvirus, and rabies. Feline leukemia virus (FELV) is also offered.
