Wellness & Vaccinations
At Dutchess County Animal Hospital, we believe that the core of a healthy life is prevention. That’s why we place such a strong emphasis on wellness care. We want your loved one to not only survive, but to thrive, enjoying as many happy, healthy years by your side as possible. When we are able to examine your four-legged friend on a regular basis, we are able to take appropriate measures to both prevent illness and to detect it in its earliest stages so that it can be addressed right away, before it becomes a problem. This can add years to your pet’s life and improve the quality of those years tremendously. Ready to get started? It’s as easy as scheduling an annual appointment. Let’s work together to help your loved one achieve a lifetime of good health.
Allergies & Dermatology
Allergies, infections and other conditions that affect the skin aren’t just things that humans have to worry about. Our pets can be susceptible to many of these same conditions, along with many of the same unpleasant symptoms, such as itching, discomfort and even pain. The good news is there are things that you can do to help manage and treat these external ailments, beginning with a professional dermatological evaluation with the team at Dutchess County Animal Hospital. Our doctors are experienced in identifying, diagnosing and treating a wide variety of dermatological issues. We’ll get your loved one back to feeling as healthy on the outside as he or she is on the inside in no time!
Nutrition & Weight Management
What do you feed your pet? Are you certain it’s meeting his or her nutritional needs? What about weight? Are you confident that your four-legged friend isn’t tipping the scales a bit too much (or too little)? Diet and exercise play a critical role in the ongoing good health of your pet, but it’s not always an easy topic to understand – especially with so many food products to choose from. Dutchess County Animal Hospital offers professional nutritional counseling and weight management services that are designed to help bring out the very best in your animal companion. Let us design a customized diet and weight control plan that is tailored to keep your pet happy, healthy and fit for many years to come!
Not every ailment or injury that can affect your pet can be easily detected on the surface of the skin. What’s more, since animals can’t speak to explain their symptoms and tell us what’s bothering them, recognizing and addressing a potential medical problem can be quite the challenge. That’s why veterinary diagnostics are so important. These tools – such as blood work, urinalysis and x-ray imaging – allow our doctors to learn what’s happening inside your pet’s body so that we can diagnose and treat the problem in the most effective and efficient manner possible. Dutchess County Animal Hospital offers access to a broad spectrum of routine and advanced veterinary diagnostic tools to help manage the health of our patients.
Does your pet suffer from bad breath? Have you noticed some yellow or broken teeth, or some that are missing altogether? What about red, swollen gums? All of these things are signs that your loved one may be suffering from a dental problem, up to and including periodontal disease. Without proper care, dental problems can lead to further medical issues throughout the entire body, some of which can be life-threatening. At Dutchess County Animal Hospital, we want to help your pet beat the odds and enjoy a healthy mouth for life. We offer a wide array of professional pet dentistry services, both routine and advanced, and will also work with you to show you ways to help your pet maintain good oral health year-round. Together we’ll get that little guy or girl smiling pretty in no time!
As a loving pet parent, learning that your furbaby needs surgery can be a frightening time. Even if the procedure is routine, like a spay or neuter, you want to be sure that your loved one will be in caring, capable hands and kept as safe and pain-free as possible. Nobody understands these concerns better than the team at Dutchess County Animal Hospital. Why? Because each one of us has been in your shoes. That’s why we work so hard to ensure that each surgery performed in our hospital is as stress-free and positive an experience as possible. We are ready, willing and able to handle all of your pet’s surgical care needs and will do everything within our power to make sure your loved one’s procedure is a complete success!
For decades now, the therapeutic laser has been used to treat ailments in humans with incredible results. Now, this same innovative technology can be applied to the care of our companion animals with the same outcome. Laser therapy is painless, drug-free and completely non-invasive and has been proven to be highly effective in reducing pain, improving mobility and speeding the healing process following surgery or injury. If your pet suffers from a chronic condition, such as arthritis, recently underwent surgery or became injured, or just seems to be experiencing difficulty getting around like he or she used to, laser therapy may be just the solution. We can help your loved one live a happier, more comfortable life.
Many pet owners choose not to have their male dogs neutered because they don’t want their four-legged friend to miss out on the health benefits that testosterone can have. Now, there’s an alternative that will allow the best of both worlds. Zinc neutering, also known as “zeutering” is a non-surgical method of sterilization that allows the animal to retain up to 50% of testosterone. Because this procedure is all natural and does not involve surgery, it can be completed much more quickly than traditional castration with fewer risks and side effects and a much faster recovery period. If you’d like more information about zeutering and whether your dog would be a good candidate for this innovative procedure, give us a call or click the link above.
Grooming & Boarding
Keeping your pet healthy and happy on the outside is equally as important as managing his or her internal wellbeing. That’s why Dutchess County Animal Hospital also offers professional grooming services and medical supervised boarding as part of our extensive list of pet care services. We want to handle all of your needs so you’ll never have to go anywhere else. Our experienced groomers will have your pet looking, smelling and feeling his or her very best while our limited boarding services provide the perfect solution for your short-term pet care needs.
