We take animal health care very seriously and want your animal to be a part of our Village Vet community.
We believe in good preventative health care. Annual physical examinations allow us an opportunity to find and deal with small problems before they become large problems. Solid deworming and vaccination programs not only protect your pet, but can also play a role in protecting your family and the community. We tailor these programs to each individual animal and their changing life circumstances.
We love to help those in pain and have a number of tools at our disposal including our powerful Class IV laser that is proven to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and improve healing times for many conditions. Maximizing comfort on minimum medications is our goal.
Is your pet drinking more than usual? Stiff on rising? Shaking their head? Have their behaviours changed? Are there new and unusual smells emanating from your loved one? These are all indications that something might be medically wrong. Many of these conditions can be diagnosed and treated in your pets’ own comfortable surroundings.
End of Life Care
If you are wondering whether euthanasia is the right answer or are not sure if this is the right time to do it, an end-of-life/euthanasia consultation with Dr. Maks may help make this heart-wrenching decision easier. She will discuss several ways to determine your pets’ quality of life. Your pet trusts and relies on you decide what is best for them. So together, you and Dr. Maks will evaluate their current condition along with your own needs and concerns. The way you may want your pet to pass will be discussed and your desires for marking or memorializing your pet exactly the way you want will be planned. Although these are very difficult and emotionally charged discussions, owners will often cope better with the loss of their pet if they have prepared for it through these discussions. An in-home euthanasia is a much more intimate, controlled and personal experience that may benefit all of those involved.
