Sometimes, our beloved pets need just a little extra care to help them be comfortable and happy in their day to day lives. When pet parents have furry family members with behavioral concerns that haven’t been resolved through training or solutions like over the counter supplements, they reach out to our Sploot team to see if additional treatment, such as anxiety medication, may make sense. We always recommend exploring options like training first, but are there for pet parents throughout the journey. Not sure what path makes the most sense? Feel free to give us a call to discuss.
Pet skin health (pet dermatology) is an important part of overall health for cats and dogs, just like it is for humans. Dryness, flakiness, irritation - all of these can create discomfort for your pets, and can be signs of concerns like fleas, mites, or skin infection. If you have any cat or dog dermatology concerns, contact us today! At Sploot, we perform baseline dermatological testing, such as skin scrapes and cultures, to assess for conditions like infections. If your pet is suffering from a more severe dermatological condition, we can recommend a veterinary dermatologist.
Dog & Cat ALLERGIES
Just like humans, dogs and cats can have allergies - sometimes severe ones! Work with our Sploot veterinary team to identify whether or not your pet has any allergies, and develop an effective plan to manage the symptoms and improve your pet's environment. Got questions about allergies? Schedule a visit with our team, or give us a call to talk through the options!
Parasite Prevention & Treatment
Dogs and cats are susceptible to various internal and external parasites. Internal parasites include parasitic protozoa, intestinal worms, heartworms, and other types of parasites that inhabit a pet’s internal organs. External parasites include fleas and ticks which are not only uncomfortable, but are also potential carriers of disease.
Prevention is crucial, especially since some parasites, especially internal ones, can cause long-term organ damage, may be difficult to cure, or can cause fatality. Early treatment of parasites can also make a big difference. Our experienced veterinarians will give the best parasite prevention strategies or parasite treatment options to keep your pet as healthy as can be.
With so many food options available to pet parents, we’re not surprised that many pet parents are overwhelmed - it’s not easy to navigate all the factors that go into selecting the pet food that will help your pet live its healthiest, happiest life. Our veterinary experts are happy to work with you to identify the best food options for your pet based on a number of considerations (including age, breed, lifestyle) that will help keep your pet satisfied and healthy!
End of life care, including euthanasia, is often one of the toughest times in a pet parent’s life. If your dog or cat is suffering, or if it feels like it could be the appropriate time to consider pet euthanasia, the Sploot team can support you through the entire process, from talking through care options (including palliative) to performing euthanasia procedures and pet parent follow ups - all with thoughtfulness and deep compassion.
