Please Note: Feline declaw surgery is not performed.
We LOVE cats at Green Valley Veterinary Care.
Declawing a cat is the removal of the first knuckle of every finger to remove the bone and nail associated with it.
Dr. Mathews has always had a strong stance against declawing cats. Her belief is surgery should be learned and performed with the mission to improve an animal’s quality of life and not for cosmetics or behavior modification.
Please take a minute to read the American Association of Feline Practitioners stance on declawing. They are the leaders of feline health and veterinary care.
The below article published in 2018 is a study that was performed assessing cats behavior and health after declawing. It concluded that declawed cats are more likely to suffer from back pain, urinate and defecate outside the box and demonstrate more aggressive behavior
Green Valley Veterinary Care can offer recommendations and advice on how to train your cat to use their nails in a polite manner. We offer soft paw nail covers application or we can teach you how to apply them at home.
Spaying and Neutering:
We believe in the importance of neutering or spaying cats and dogs of any age. Ideally done early in life, this safe surgery can provide them with a long and healthy life.
Spaying your female cat or dog will reduce problems, illnesses, pet overpopulation, and massive euthanasia of unwanted strays.
Neutering your male cat or dog will reduce problems such
Spayed and neutered pets live a healthier and longer life!
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease.
If you’ve noticed yellowing of your pet’s teeth, bad breath, bleeding, or broken teeth, something just isn’t right. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. If you are noticing issues, it could be as simple as tartar buildup. However, it could also be as serious as periodontal disease, a medical condition that can spread infection throughout your pet’s entire body.
Dental Care with Dental Radiographs
Dogs and cats cannot tell us when their teeth are diseased. X-rays are the only way for us to know your dog or cat has a serious dental problem that can be treated. Cleaning a pet’s teeth without X-rays often results in missed opportunities to improve the quality of life and health of your animal. At Green Valley Veterinary Care we will do what is best for your pet and their oral health care. Call and schedule a dental consult today.
We will teach you at-home care for your pet’s teeth, as well as providing all dental services at Green Valley Veterinary Care to keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy.
An ultrasound examination, also known as ultrasonography, is a non-invasive imaging technique that allows internal body structures to be seen by recording echoes or reflections of ultrasonic waves. These waves are converted to a picture. These pictures can be used to make a diagnosis of your pets illness. We can even use it to diagnose pregnancy, or check on fetal health.
Ultrasound is available to our clients and patients at Green Valley Veterinary Care. We will also provide this service to non-clients/owners if your primary veterinarian has recommended you seek an abdominal ultrasound with another doctor. Just call to schedule the procedure and we will be happy to help you. We will work with your veterinarian to get them information they need from a scan.
It is a scary situation when a pet becomes separated from his or her owner. Owners worry about their pet’s safety, who will find their pet, and how they will be reunited. Pets have been known to slip their collars and I.D. tags can fall off or become unreadable.
Microchipping can offer assurance that animal shelters and veterinarians can identify your pet. Green Valley Veterinary Care is pleased to offer pet microchipping as a means of protecting your pet.
HOW IT WORKS
A tiny microchip is placed under the skin between the shoulder blades of the dog or cat (other animals such as ferrets and most mammals can be microchipped too). The microchip has an identification number on it, which can be read by a scanner. A veterinarian’s office or animal shelter can scan the chip to find out who owns the animal.
Senior Pet Care
The needs of dogs and cats change as they grow older. Green Valley Veterinary Care understands these changes and will tailor your dog or cat’s health plan to meet his or her needs.
With the increased risk of different health issues, our vets recommend that senior pets have physical exams every six months. Blood work should continue to be checked once a year and regular teeth cleanings should continue.
Quicker diagnosis leads to quicker treatment. This is why it’s important to bring your pet to a veterinary center with the latest technology.
We’ll start with a thorough physical exam, and then move on to more advanced technology as needed. Our hospital is outfitted with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment making it easy to achieve fast and accurate results.
Radiographs or x rays may be needed if your pet is ill or painful. At Green Valley Veterinary Care we have everything needed to take great images of your furry friend. We can also send them to a radiologist quickly if needed for a consultation.
We treat your pets as valued family members.
