Uncertain if an iguana is the right kind of pet for your family? Maybe your parrot is shedding feathers and very agitated. Is this normal? Wondering why your cat has suddenly started howling at night? Perhaps your dog has just been diagnosed with cancer—now what?
Consultation services from Gentle Care Animal Hospital encompass a range of issues from pet choice to a second opinion for veterinary treatment. Our veterinarians will assist you in exploring every option available and help you decide which course of action would best suit your needs.
Behavioral issues are common in pets, and we offer a variety of options such as resources for training techniques and programs. Often behavioral changes occur as a symptom of a hidden illness, and we are able to provide diagnostic support such as lab work or an ultrasound. Counseling for the behavioral and physical changes in a senior pet assist pet owners in adapting to the aging process, both in lifestyle changes and structural aids or appliances.
Long-term medical concerns, such as cancer, arthritis, or kidney disease, require a game plan to address symptoms, pain, and lifestyle. Our veterinarians offer alternative treatment combination appropriate to the type and stage of your pet’s illness or condition.
The choice of a pet affects every member of the family, and our veterinarians are able to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each pet choice in relation to your needs and lifestyle. Gentle Care Animal Hospital is familiar with a wide range of animal companions, including dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, amphibians, exotics, and pocket pets.
