Dr Sierra will complete a comprehensive head-to-tail inspection of your pets’ general condition and state of health. She will ask you questions about your pet’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and regular activities at home. Sometimes, information obtained during a wellness examination can help detect early signs of illness and address health issues before they progress.
If your pet appears to be healthy enough for routine preventive care, Dr Sierra will discuss which vaccinations are advised, as well as parasite prevention including heartworm disease, intestinal parasites, and ectoparasites (fleas, ticks, etc.) as well as options for having your pet microchipped.
Dr Sierra has the knowledge and experience needed to diagnose and treat your pet’s illness or injury. An on-site x-ray and diagnostic laboratory will help to diagnose the cause of the illness or injury and decide the best treatment options. Treatments may include a combination of at home care, in hospital treatment, off-site diagnostic testing or referral to a specialist treatment center.
Dr Sierra performs a wide variety of surgeries, including spay and neuter, pyometra, bladder stones, and C-sections. During surgery, Dr Sierra and the technicians closely monitor vital signs including heartbeat, oxygen level, and blood pressure. Afterwards, pets awaken in our recovery area where technicians are present during the entire recovery process to ensure patient safety.
Dr Sierra is able to provide teeth cleaning, tooth extractions, and gum disease treatment. Dental health not only helps animals to get proper nutrition, it also prevents certain types of bacteria from traveling into other organs and causing disease.
