Many of the same health problems that affect us, including hearing loss, also affect our pets. Fortunately, most pets adapt very well to the disability with a little help from their owners.View Article

Terra Losa Animal Clinic is passionate about pets and provides a complete range of services to keep them healthy for the long haul. Our Edmonton veterinarian has the superior expertise to handle everything from routine preventative services to emergency care. Read on to learn more.
The routine wellness examination is the key for your pet’s long, happy and healthy life. This annual examination gives our Edmonton veterinarian the chance to prevent or catch any diseases before they become serious. Our additional routine services include vaccinations, microchipping, dental, parasite protection and more, depending on your pet’s specific health needs.
Vaccinations give your pet life-long protection from many virulent diseases. Necessary, or core vaccines, protect pets from such dangerous, and even life-threatening diseases as rabies, distemper, parvovirus, and feline herpes virus. Our Edmonton veterinarian will recommend non-core vaccines based on your pet’s risk factors.
Nothing is worse than when your pet is injured or becomes desperately ill. Rest assured that with our Edmonton veterinarian and staff on duty 6 days per week, we are equipped to handle blunt-force trauma, poisoning, seizures and other emergencies.
The health benefits from spaying and neutering pets are significant, including less risk of breast cancer and uterine infections for spayed females and elimination of testicular cancer in males. In addition, the tendency for males to roam, spray and mark is significantly curbed, making them a more enjoyable pet. Best yet – spaying and neutering pets contributes to reducing the number of abandoned and homeless pets crowding shelters and ultimately being euthanized.
Your pet’s mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body, and if his or her teeth don’t have regular cleanings, not only does the risk of periodontal disease increase, but further complications, such as heart disease, can develop. We use anesthesia to make your pet safe and comfortable while our veterinarian performs the cleaning.
Pets are precious family members, and should they become lost, it is devastating. Sadly, according to the ASPCA, one third of pets become lost at some time and if they are not microchipped, finding them is unlikely. A microchip matches your pet to your contact information making a happy reunion much more likely. Our microchipping services are as easy as giving your pet a vaccination.
Our Edmonton animal clinic is fully equipped with the latest technology and protocols, including an in-house lab and digital radiology which let us perform fast and accurate diagnoses. We also have a fully equipped surgical suite to handle everything from cancer to orthopedic surgeries. If the need arises, we are networked with veterinary specialists who can help with more complex cases.
Our list of services is long, but the message is clear: we can handle anything you and your pet bring to us, and we do so with competence and compassion. Call us at 780-484-1178 to learn more!.
