WELCOME TO BLAKE HOME VET
Providing Excellent Service & Exceptional Care
At Blake Home Vet, we love animals, and we want to make sure every pet feels at ease. To do this, before a check up begins we spend time getting your pet comfortable so that they can feel relaxed enough for an exam. With more relaxation your pet is less stressed while we complete their examination…
all in the comfort of your own home!
We recommend annual wellness exams for adult dogs and cats between one and seven years old. Puppies, kittens, and senior pets should have more frequent examinations. At each check-up, we record your pet’s weight and temperature, ask about eating habits and exercise, and discuss parasite control. Our veterinarians also check for specific health issues, such as diabetes and signs of cancer. You also have the chance to get help with any behavioral concerns.
Some of the most common surgeries we perform include tooth extraction, removal of skin masses, bladder stones, and surgery for various types of cancer. Regardless of the type of surgery your pet needs, his or her veterinarian will let you know exactly what you can expect. This includes the surgical procedure itself as well as the recovery at home.
Although the age at which dogs and cats are considered a senior can vary by breed, we like to start seeing pets for bi-annual exams around age seven. Like people, older pets have an increased risk of kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, senility, and general weakness. Staying on top of these issues helps improve the quality of life for your pet in the senior years. Mobility challenges and behavior changes are also more common with older pets.
Vaccinations play a vital role in extending your pet’s life and preventing disease, illness, and fatality. We can help you understand and navigate the complexity of your pet’s immunizations whether you’re adopting a puppy, kitty, cat, dog, or another pet.
Parasites can have a serious effect on your pet’s health through infection and disease. We can diagnose and safely treat external, intestinal, and other internal parasites to protect your pet. We can also prescribe preventative medicine to continue to keep your pet and family safe from a parasite infestation.
Exotic companion animals are a quickly growing trend in many households, and they need veterinary care just like other animal. If your small friend gets sick or injured we will be there for them every step of the way.
