One out of every three pets will become lost at some point in their lifetime. Make sure yours has the best chance of returning home and consider getting them microchipped. A microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice, and it causes no pain or discomfort for your pet. We recommend doing this when your pet is with us for a spay or neuter procedure.
Good nutrition and a healthy weight are an important part of your pet’s well-being. The right diet and exercise plan can help keep your loved one fit, ward off potential health problems, and even make chronic medical conditions easier to manage.
The problem is, with so many different food options to choose from, and so little available information surrounding the topic of companion animal weight control, handling these components of your pet’s healthcare can be challenging.
Based on an assessment of your pet’s current and past diet along with an in-depth medical history analysis, our doctors will make recommendations regarding commercial or home-cooked diets, treats, or supplements if necessary.
End of Life Services
Pets hold a very special place in everyone’s hearts. We never want to see them suffering or in pain. That said, saying goodbye to a long-time friend is never easy, even if it is in the pet’s best interest. At Coolridge Animal Hospital, our compassionate veterinarians and staff will be there for you and your pet. If you require counseling about your pet’s quality of life and potential next steps, our veterinarians will carefully review each of the options available.
Should hospice or pet end-of-life care services become necessary, we can assist you with those as well. We will work with you to ensure that your pet is comfortable and treated with dignity throughout this difficult process.
