Vaccines - To stay healthy, pets need a variety of vaccines throughout their lifetime. Vaccines are used to prevent many small pets from contracting illnesses like rabies, hepatitis, influenza, distemper and more. Some vaccines are administered only once, while other vaccines may be administered on a regular basis. Our experienced veterinarians will set up a vaccination schedule to meet your pet's needs.
Dental services - Animals with poor oral hygiene can develop painful conditions that reduce reduce quality of life. Our dental services can prevent these conditions, or treat conditions that your pet develops over time.
Laser therapy - This process is used to shorten healing times and manage pet pain after surgery. Laser therapy can also be used for a wide variety of medical conditions such as arthritis, wound healing and skin infections. Pets who receive laser therapy require fewer pharmacological interventions as they recover from surgery.
Surgery - Sometimes surgery is the only way to heal an animal who experiences an injury or debilitating illness. Our veterinary team conducts surgeries for pets in need, to return them to good health.
Nutritional counseling - Good nutrition prevents illness and helps to keep your pet at a healthy weight. Proper nutrition can also prevent your pet from experiencing some types of dental problems. Our nutrition counseling services will give you the guidance to feed your pet healthy foods.
Preventative services - Best Friends preventative services protects animals against heart worms, fleas, ticks and other parasites.
Pain management - Some pets require pain management for chronic conditions. Other pets require pain management while they recover from an injury or surgery. Best Friends Animal Hospital offers pain management services to fit your pet's needs during the healing process.
