Spay/Neuter

There are numerous advantages to spaying or neutering your pet. The surgery can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life by preventing them from reproducing.

You’re protecting your pet from potentially fatal infections, reproductive tract diseases, and various types of cancer by spaying or neutering him or her. Furthermore, spaying or neutering your pet will aid in the control of the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.

Grain Free Diets

We recommend diets with grains. There has been a link between pets on a grain-free diet and heart disease. Click here for more information.

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworms are transmitted to dogs by mosquitoes. Without the monthly administration of a heartworm preventative, your pet could be at risk for a potentially deadly illness of the heart and lungs. Sadly, many animals don’t show symptoms until the disease is advanced, if at all. At Doctors Office for Pets, we understand that year-round prevention is the only guarantee that your pet won’t suffer from this infestation.
