Spaying is the surgical removal of internal reproductive organs (both ovaries and uterus).
Neuter is the surgical removal of male reproductive organs (testicles).
The best way to prevent unnecessary breeding is spaying or neutering which will help fight pet overpopulation.
Early spaying prevents female dogs and cats from ovarian, uterine, and mammary diseases. Neutering prevents male dogs or cats from developing prostatic problems, or neoplasia.
Spaying or neutering reduces the incidence of some behavioral problems like marking the house with urine, roaming around, and fighting.
Dental disease is a common problem for dogs and cats especially as they are getting older. Bad breath (halitosis) is one of the most common clinical presentations of dental disease. If your pet
has a painful mouth is can lead to loss of appetite, becoming less active, or depressed. read more
Heartworm testing, prevention and treatment
We recommend getting your pet tested for Heartworm infection every year. If the test comes back negative, your animal can be started on heartworm prevention medications. If the test comes back
positive, we recommend starting the treatment of your dog. read more
Pain prevention and control
Pets suffer from pain just like humans do. Sometimes it is hard for them to show us how much pain they are in or where it hurts. We do not want your pet to be in any pain and we try to do all we
can to prevent and control it. read more
We strongly recommend checking your pet’s fecal samples annually for indoor pets, and every six months for outdoor pets.
A fecal flotation is a test performed in-house at ARAH as a way of diagnosing internal parasitism in your pet. The microscope slide is examined thoroughly for the presence of different parasitic
organisms (eggs, oocysts and worm larvae).
Our veterinary technician will collect a stool sample from your dog or cat during the consult, using a fecal collection loop. Alternatively, you, as the owner, can assist to get a diagnosis by
bringing your pet's fresh stool sample into the hospital for fecal flotation.
Being infected with internal parasites your pet can suffer from vomiting and/or diarrhea, weight loss, poor hair coat. Some of the parasites can be transmitted from your pet to the owner so it is
strongly recommended to get your pet regularly checked for internal parasites, and treated as needed. we recommend..
We offer medical boarding for dogs and cats. Medical boarding prices vary by the size of the pet and is charged by how many nights the pet stays with us. All boarding animals need to be up to
date on vaccines and a current fecal sample. It is preferable that you bring your own food so your pet’s diet does not get changed. Any blankets or toys are allowed as long as your pet does not have
a history of ingesting toys, etc. We do go by appointment which we prefer to be made a few days to a week in advance if not sooner. The pet must be picked up on the day written down upon drop off
unless notice is given.
Flea control and prevention.
Flea infestation can cause a lot of problems for your pet and actually to owners as well. Adult fleas bite pets and humans causing itching and in some pets severe allergic dermatitis. Your pet
will scratch and bite itself which can cause development of bacterial skin infection. read more
