A full service Veterinary in Oahu should be able to meet all the surgical, medical, and dental needs of your pet. Surgical services include spaying and/or neutering your pet. Vets recommend that a pet should be spayed at age 6 months or before the first heat cycle. Female pets that are not spayed may be stressed out by high hormone levels. Plus the risk of health conditions such as uterine infections, breast tumors, and ovarian cysts is increased. Spaying means fewer health issues and a longer life. Your male cat or dog ought to be neutered around age 6 months. Neutered animals exhibit a more relaxed behavior as well as fewer hormones. Neutering lowers the risk of tumors, hernias, and prostate issues. For cats, urinary spraying is usually avoided after neutering. The risk of testicular cancer and prostate problems are also greatly reduced.
Heartworm in Hawaii is a main concern for your pet since mosquitoes are widespread on the islands. Your dog ought to have a heartworm screening at least yearly, and the pet should be on a heartworm prevention program. If you have a pet that is already infected with heartworm, there are treatments available. The type of treatment used depends on the animal’s weight, age, and lifestyle. Other services include dental cleaning, x-rays, and dental surgery. Electrocardiogram services are also offered, and if needed, referrals to cardiologists. You can also count on emergency services and much more.
