At Sheehy Animal Hospital in Livonia, MI, we provide extensive professional veterinary services ranging from basic disease prevention to emergency medical care. While we believe good pet health begins at an early age, we know that is not always possible. It is never too late to begin your pet’s wellness journey. Whether you have a new puppy or you’ve rescued one with a few problems, our veterinary professionals are ready to assist you.
Wellness Care Services
Wellness care is the most comprehensive care you can give your pet. This means regular checkups. It’s important to set a baseline. Since your pet cannot tell you when it is ill, regular examinations are our veterinarian’s best means of detection. Any changes in the baseline could be an indication of a problem. Vaccines are given as well as prescriptions for preventable diseases such as heartworm.
We are trained to identify certain diseases or disorders that are common in specific breeds. We can often differentiate between a fatty lump (lipoma) and something less benign. Dental health is also a part of our comprehensive exams. Poor dental health can lead to more serious problems with your pet as the bacteria in the mouth travels into the body. We can clean teeth and extract or repair damaged teeth if necessary.
Spaying and Neutering
Veterinary studies indicate that spayed and neutered dogs and cats live longer than those who are not. Spayed and neutered pets appear to live healthier lives, with fewer infections, cancers, and other maladies. Spaying and neutering are also thought to prevent undesirable behaviors such as urine-marking in dogs and “spraying” in cats. It’s also believed that neutering male dogs can decrease aggressive behavior and may curb excessive barking and roaming.
Animals We Treat
The most common pets we treat are dogs and cats. We also treat rabbits, reptiles, hamsters, and birds.
