By the age of three, the majority of dogs and cats exhibit signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is (silently) painful, causes deterioration to the supporting structures of the tooth, and even worse – can spread harmful bacteria throughout your pet’s blood stream, potentially harming vital organs.
Dermatology primarily treats issues with your pet’s skin, nails or hair. Dogs and cats commonly suffer from allergies, rashes, parasites, and other issues. It’s important to not let these health issues go unnoticed, as they can be very uncomfortable for your pet.
Internal medicine deals with the complicated systems at work within your dog or cat’s body. It is commonly useful with diseases affecting entire systems, such as endocrine, respiratory, gastrointestinal, immune, and more.
Our veterinary facility maintains state-of-the-art equipment and an exceptionally talented surgery team. We perform routine surgeries (such as spay or neuter), soft tissue surgery, as well as more complicated or advanced procedures.
Radiographic Imaging tools are a powerful way for us to investigate the root of the problem that your pet is facing. Our state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine saves time and increases safety to quickly and accurately diagnose an issue.
We recommend regular preventative screening of your pet’s blood work, urine, or other samples in order to detect disease before it becomes a serious concern. Other times, when an animal is already sick, we need more immediate results.
Occasionally your pet needs to get more diagnostics beyond the typical X-Ray image. Here at Williamsburg Veterinary Clinic we have two board certified traveling Veterinarians who can perform in-depth ultrasound and cardiology exams!
