A complete physical examination is important for maintaining a happy and healthy pet. We recommend regular examinations and vaccinations to ensure optimal health for your pet in our veterinary hospital. Our experienced vets will conduct a full and thorough medical history, followed by a complete physical exam. Our examinations are customized for each pet based on age, breed, species and potential health concerns.
Our vaccination recommendations are tailored to each individual pet with careful attention to recognized risk factors and environmental factors. Regular heartworm and parasite prevention is recommended for all pets. Older pets, receive semi-annual exams and should be tested to screen for early signs of disease. With recent advances in veterinary medicine, many medical conditions, when detected early, can be properly diagnosed and effectively managed in a veterinary clinic. Because may pet vaccines have a limited lifespan, annual wellness checkups will ensure your pets are protected against preventable diseases.
Advanced stem cell therapy uses your pet’s own stem cells for treatment. This is called Autologous Therapy – when the stem cells come from your own body’s tissues. There are no ethical or moral concerns with the use of stem cells from one’s own body as these cells are adult and not embryonic. United Veterinary Center’s advancement in technology allows us to utilize the body’s own regenerative capabilities with our proprietary treatment.
