Our other team members are animal lovers, graduates of accredited programs, and committed to our Terra Losa Animal Clinic.
We are passionate believers in spaying and neutering pets and we prefer it be done before your pet reaches 6 months of age. Spaying and neutering provides significant health benefits for pets including reducing and eliminating the risks of certain cancers. For females, uterine infections are eliminated and the risk of mammary tumors greatly reduced. For males, there is no risk of developing testicular cancer. In addition, many obnoxious pet behaviors, such as spraying, marking, roaming, and messy heats, are either modified or completed eradicated. Then there is the animal rights issue. We do not believe in adding to the mushrooming numbers of unwanted, abandoned and abused pets in the Edmonton area.
Another of our veterinary best practices is the annual wellness exam. Just as you have a yearly physical, we ask all pet owners to make appointments for their pet's yearly exam. This gives us the chance to follow a pet's every health need over the years. It is also the time when we administer pet's vaccinations which are the key to keeping them healthy and protected from dangerous and contagious diseases.
Dental exams and cleaning are also instrumental in keeping pets healthy. The annual exam gives the veterinarian a chance to visually inspect the teeth and from there, schedule the once-a-year cleaning. Keeping the pet's teeth free of plaque and tarter reduces chances for gingivitis and periodontal disease as well as other serious issues such as heart disease!
If your pet needs surgery, there is no safer and more caring place to have it done than our animal clinic. Our impeccable surgery suite is equipped with the tops in available technology which we use to monitor your pet throughout the procedure. You'll also get complete instructions for your pet's after-care.
