To Our Valued Clients,

The safety and well-being of our clients, patients, and staff are our highest priority. As such, we are closely monitoring the most recent reports from the CDC as well as state and local government agencies relating to COVID-19.

In response to updated reports and information that continues to be presented, we are taking all precautions necessary to protect everyone’s well-being and have made the decision to institute a “no visitor” policy starting March 20, 2020, until further notice. This means that only hospital personnel will be allowed in the building. In order for us to adhere to this and still continue to provide our clients and their pets with the care needed, we are taking the following measures:

  1. All patient examinations will be either concierge “curbside” or drop-off appointments. When you arrive at the hospital for your appointment time, please call the office from your car to let staff know that you are here. A staff member will come out to your car to bring your pet inside for its exam. Once examined, the doctor will call you to go over any findings and recommendations. After the examination and/or diagnostics are done, your pet will be brought back out to you. A staff member will then be out to collect payment (credit card payments can be made over the phone) for the visit as well as bring you any prescribed medications.
  2. Our hours have changed:
    Mon – Thurs: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM, Fri: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Sat: 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM, and closed on Sundays until this crisis passes.
  3. All medication pick-ups will also be curbside. Please call us when you arrive, and we will deliver the ordered items to your car. Now is also an ideal time to utilize our online pharmacy for home delivery of medications and prescription diets. Please visit our online pharmacy here.
  4. We ask that if you or your family members are sick, please reschedule your appointment or ask that someone else bring your pet in.

If anyone has any questions, please call or email us. We will continue to stay in touch and keep you up to date on any changes going forward and appreciate your understanding.

Examinations

Why are annual physical exams so important?

The veterinarian is able to assess your pet’s overall physical health as well as their lifestyle at home. Your dog or cat may seem normal or fine at home but remember they are aging seven times faster each year. Pets mask when they are sick or feel bad — they can hide suffering and pain very well, so you may not know that they’re suffering. Yearly exams are important to help keep a lookout for a wide range of potential issues that can occur to your pet over time, including general sickness, congenital or chronic disease, bacterial or viral infection, severe tooth decay or gum disease, inflammation-causing health issues, or a possible stress-related illness.

Benefits of Annual Physical Exams

Annual physical exams give you peace of mind knowing the state of your pet’s health. Annual exams give you a baseline for what is normal for your pet’s health so you can readily see any changes from the previous year. Yearly checkups can lengthen your pet’s life expectancy by addressing health issues early on before they become more serious, advanced, and/or difficult to treat. Your veterinarian will be able to detect any new health problems or chronic conditions that might have otherwise been missed or delayed if you waited another year. From there, the proper treatment can be started in a timely manner, which can make all the difference for those issues that, if left untreated, can lead to serious complications and additional health problems.

What to Expect at Your Pet's Annual Exam

Annual wellness visits are considered nose-to-tail physical exams where your veterinarian will check the following on your pet:

  • Mouth, teeth, and gums for disease and tooth decay
  • Eyes and ears for infections, inflammation, and any drainage
  • Skin — the largest organ on the body, for overall health, grooming, looseness, masses
  • Nose for congestion or drainage, hyperkeratosis
  • Heart for heart murmurs or abnormal sounds and rhythms
  • Lungs for respiratory congestion or abnormalities
  • Kidneys are manually checked for pain, sensitivity, and size
  • Fur is checked for flea dirt and fleas, and condition of the coat
  • Leg joints for range of movement
  • Internal organs will be palpated for any signs of abnormalities or problems
    • For an internal organ assessment on organ function, we recommend annual bloodwork to catch diseases early.

Screenings

Firstly, our pets can’t speak. They cannot tell us if they feel off color or unwell. They do not have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them every six months as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease before it is clinically apparent.

Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.

Use the following age chart to find your pet’s age in “people” years, and the test recommended for each stage of his or her life.

We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pets live longer, healthier lives.

Please Note: These are approximations and may vary by gender, species, and breed.

Blue/Lilac

Every 12 months: Baseline Blood Profile (a small blood test checking internal organ health)

Every 6 months: Urine Specific Gravity (a urine test to check how well the kidneys concentrate urine – there is no charge for this test)

Green

Every 12 months: Annual Health Profile (a blood test checking red and white blood cell counts and a more comprehensive internal organ screen)

Every 6 months: Urine Specific Gravity

Yellow

Every 12 months: Senior Health Profile (comprehensive internal organ screen including thyroid testing, electrolytes, and red and white cell counts and urine specific gravity)

Every 6 months: Urine Specific Gravity +/- Urine Dipstick

Red

Every 6 months: Golden Years Health Profile (comprehensive internal organ screen including thyroid testing, electrolytes, and red and white cell counts)

Vaccines

No one likes vaccines, but they exist to help keep your pet safe from some deadly diseases. Here at Sully Animal Hospital, we talk with each owner and assess your pet’s risk. This helps us create a vaccine protocol we feel is best for their specific needs.

The oral version of the Bordetella vaccine is easy to give and comes with no side effects.

Rabies: We have regular dog rabies 1-year and 3-year vaccines. We also have the Purevax rabies vaccine for cats only. This is highly recommended for cats because it is safer.

*Rabies vaccines are required by law*

Flea & Tick Control

We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard, and on your pet.

There are many pet products out there, but please consult your veterinarian on the best products. Just because you can buy them over the counter does not mean they are safe for your pet.

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure, and damage to other organs in the body. Heartworm disease affects dogs, cats, and ferrets, but heartworms also live in other mammal species, including wolves, coyotes, foxes, sea lions, and — in rare instances — humans. Because wild species such as foxes and coyotes live in proximity to many urban areas, they are considered important carriers of the disease.

Preventative Measures We Recommend

Proheart: A one-time injection that lasts for six months.
Simparica Trio: Heartworm protection with tick and flea protection.

Dietary Counseling

As a pet owner, it must be overwhelming to decide on what to feed your pet. When making your decision, remember to ask your veterinarian. They are your main source of information about food and what you should feed your pet. Also, please visit petfoodology.com for further insight into this important part of your pet’s daily life.

We will be there to provide guidance regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, and performance.

Laboratory Services

Our in-house modern blood machines provide serum chemistry and can return results quickly, allowing for a smoother experience for you and your pet. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
