Parvovirus Infection TreatmentCoronavirus is very similar to the intestinal form of parvovirus in its symptoms. It results in vomiting and diarrhea, mostly affecting puppies. The difference is that coronavirus, while still dangerous to your dog, is usually not fatal. For prevention keep your dog in clean conditions and be careful when around other dogs. Your dog can also be vaccinated for this disease, and it is usually good for their lifetime.
Feline Retro Virus TreatmentThis is another virus that is spread through direct contact with an infected cat. For this reason the vaccine is highly recommended for outdoor cats, or cats that are frequently in contact with other cats. Indoor, solitary cats should still be vaccinated to prevent against the potentially fatal virus, but are not at as high a risk to contract it. Like all vaccines, there are some potential side effects. A small percentage of cats developed cancerous sarcomas where they were injected with the vaccine. Have a conversation with your vet if you have any questions about the vaccine.
Bacterial and Viral Infection TreatmentThis disease is more commonly referred to as “parvo” and is one of the leading causes of viral infections in dogs. It is highly contagious and transmitted by direct or indirect contact with contaminated feces. There are cardiac and intestinal forms of the disease, both of which are fatal in most cases when left untreated. The vaccination is highly recommended and is given in a series of shots starting when the puppy is about 8 weeks old.
Veterinary OphthalmologyEyes: The eyes are checked for cataracts, retina disease, signs of glaucoma, and other abnormalities. These can all results in blindness, so it is important to check for them regularly.
Behavioral CounselingOften the problem we see with our pets has nothing to do with a physical ailment but rather a behavioral issue. Some behavioral problems can be so serious that they threaten the very life of the pet when their frustrated or fearful owner can no longer cope with the aggressive actions.
Nutritional CounselingThe more common name for this virus is “distemper”. It is a highly contagious disease which is why vaccination is recommended. Symptoms include fever, seizures, loss of appetite, and possibly death. Kittens are born with a natural immunity for the first few weeks of their lives. Vaccinations should start at around 8 weeks old and there are series of about 3-4 follow-ups about 2 weeks apart. Your cat should also receive a vaccination every 1-3 years going forward.
Comprehensive ExaminationPhysical exams are just as important for your pet as they are for you and me. They are probably even more important because your dog or cat can't tell you when they need to go to the doctor! There may be signs from your pet that they are sick, such as laziness, lack of appetite, change in demeanor, among others. If you notice these symptoms you should schedule an appointment with your vet. Even if your pet seems to be perfectly healthy, you should bring them in for a physical exam at least once a year, and more often if they are older. Your pet's exam will be very similar to a physical you would have, including checking...
Dental CareThe best way to properly care for your pet's oral hygiene is to brush their teeth daily. Just like us, our pets develop plaque on their teeth which, if not removed, can lead to oral health problems. There are bones and special treats that can help promote oral health, but the best way to clean your pet's teeth is by brushing them. It may take some time for your dog or cat to get used to the idea of having their teeth brushed, but they can be eased into it. You can start by letting them taste the toothpaste from your finger. There are special veterinary toothpastes made in flavors like chicken that appeal to animals. Once they get used to the toothpaste you can begin by brushing 1-2 teeth to introduce them to the sensation. After a few cleanings your pet will probably start to enjoy the brushing and will be happy to let you do it. Along with the special toothpaste a special toothbrush should be used with soft bristles and a long handle so you can reach the teeth in the back of your pet's mouth.
VaccinationWe love to have fun, but we do have a few rules. We require that your pet is up to date on their vaccinations for the safety of the other animals here. Call us if you have any questions about the required vaccinations. We also require that you drop off and pick up your pet during regular business hours.
Lab and X-Rays
Laboratory ServicesFor older pets, you may want to see the vet more than once a year. Every 6 months is recommended for cats and dogs over the age of 7. These visits help to detect and monitor diseases that are normally found in animals of this age, such as arthritis. Your veterinarian will also use additional tests appropriate for senior pets such as blood tests, stool exams, a biochemical profile and an analysis of their urine.
Chronic Condition Treatment
Heart Disease TreatmentThere are many different types of food available for your pet, and each has its own benefits. You should ask your vet which particular food is best for your pet. The food your pet eats depends on their age, size, breed as well as other factors. If your pet has a health condition such as kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, stomach ailments, or obesity there are prescription diets available to help them combat their ailment. Your vet has extensive knowledge on this subject and can prescribe the best food for your pet.
Kidney Disease TreatmentMy husband and I moved to Tallahassee from Louisiana, where we had spent our entire lives, in November 2012. We had three precious canine rescues from Baton Rouge, one of whom was nearing the end of her battle with kidney failure when we arrived in Florida. We had established a great relationship with our local vet in Louisiana, and had determined a treatment of care that would keep her comfortable and with us as long as possible, so one of our first tasks was finding a vet in our new city. After visiting a few other clinics in the area that weren't a good fit for us, we were so happy to find Capital Circle Veterinary Hospital. On our first visit, they helped me manage one of the other dog's allergies without costly tests and medications and - most importantly - put me at ease for the time we'd have to tell Lucy goodbye, which I knew wasn't far off. When the day came, we called and Jaimie told us to come right away. The day all pet owners dread had arrived and we were absolutely devastated, but I truly can't imagine a better group of people to help her, and us, through that very difficult morning. They were kind and compassionate, and even though more than a year has passed, I fondly remember the comfort they provided all three of us, and I will always be grateful.
Periodontal Disease TreatmentA high percentage of cats and dogs will experience periodontal disease during their lives, and the risk increases as they get older. Periodontal disease affects the gum and supporting structures of the teeth. Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and bone loss in the jaw. Periodontal disease is also related to other health issues, such as heart disease. It is important to have regularly scheduled teeth and gum cleanings for your pet.
