Routine Care

Getting ready for your first visit? We look forward to meeting you and the newest member of your family! Please bring your cat in a carrier or your dog on a leash. If you know your pet is aggressive, please notify our staff prior to your appointment and special arrangements will be made. There is no need to be anxious about the visit. If you remain calm so will your pet. Remember that animals “pick up on your emotions” and will change their behavior. Your pet is in great hands with our well-trained staff. They will make your pet feel at home and provide them with compassionate veterinary care. If you’ve adopted a pet from the Maui Humane Society, please bring in your adoption papers to receive a FREE EXAM! You must bring in your pet a week from adoption to receive this offer.

Here’s what to expect. During the visit, we will go over the medical history of your pet and discuss any concerns you might have. Once we have established a health profile we will examine your pet, test for parasites, and vaccinate him or her. We will also explain how to properly care for your kitten or puppy. We’ll address topics like: grooming, socialization, litter box or crate training, troubleshooting bad behavior, pet safety, spaying/neutering and prevention of parasites.

Vaccines to prevent infectious diseases, heart-worm medication, and flea and tick control can help keep your pet from getting life-threatening diseases. Confining and controlling your pet’s environment can also greatly reduce the chances of trauma or toxin exposure.

Early treatment of disease is likely to be not only more effective but also less expensive. Very young, very old, debilitated pets, or pets with pre-existing health problems may be more likely to get very ill quickly. Multiple problems or indications of severe disease, (coma, weakness, seizures) may indicate that your pet needs to be seen on an emergency basis.

When something is wrong with your pet, you want to know as quickly as possible what it is and how to fix it… And so do we! That is why we know it so important to keep our clinics up-to-date. Our digital X-ray station is no exception to making sure we provide quality services using leading technology.

Dental care is a very important part of pet health care. Besides the obvious bad breath and tooth loss, research has shown untreated dental problems result in heart, liver, and kidney disease. To combat this problem, our doctors offer many levels of treatment. Prescription diets, tooth brushing, and enzymatic chews for dogs are just the beginning.

A thorough dental care program encourages routine tartar removal, cleaning, and polishing of the teeth under general anesthesia. Trained technicians complete these procedures under the veterinarian’s supervision. While under anesthesia, your pet’s teeth, gums, and mouth can be examined without stress or danger.
