No procedure is 100% safe - infections or reactions and other complications can arise from even seemingly minor procedures - but the staff at Gully Animal Hospital will take every precaution necessary for the safety and wellbeing of your pet. You are encouraged to discuss any procedure recommended by your Gully Animal Hospital veterinarian regarding benefits and risks.
It is recommended that your pet come in for a yearly check-up and blood work. Your Gully Animal Hospital veterinarian will best be able to determine if more or less frequent testing is necessary for your pet's breed, age, or any special needs or medical conditions.
Like humans, your pet's oral health plays an important role when it comes to overall health. If your Gully Animal Hospital veterinarian recommends a dental procedure, it may be to treat any number of conditions, like an infection or to correct an abnormal bite that could affect jaw movement, causing pain and a decrease in appetite.
A healthy diet is important for any pet. Lethargy, behavior issues, illness, digestive problems, and skin conditions can be linked to a poor diet. Even with a normal, healthy diet, sometimes pets can have specific dietary needs that need to be addressed, like vitamin deficiencies. Your Gully Animal Hospital veterinarian will be able to address your dietary concerns.
Changes in behavior can be a warning sign that something is wrong with your pet. If you notice a significant change, contact your Gully Animal Hospital veterinarian. Depending on the symptoms they might suggest an appointment for further evaluation.
If you notice parasites on your pet or in your pet's stool, contact the Gully Animal Hospital. Your veterinarian may want to see your pet to determine what kind of infection your pet may have and what treatments may be needed. You might also be asked to gather a stool sample. Other pets may also have to be treated, whether or not they are exhibiting symptoms.

Depending on the breed most cats and dogs can be neutered as early as eight weeks, but it should be done before they reach six months. Your Gully Animal Hospital veterinarian will be able to determine when would be the right time for your particular pet.
Heartworms are a parasite that can be potentially fatal to dogs. Heartworms can permanently damage the heart and other organs. There are many preventative treatments available - talk to your Gully Animal Hospital veterinarian about treatment options.
Whether your pet is suffering from illness or injury, pain management plays an integral role in the healing process.
