Animal owners can make an appointment at the Vancouver animal hospital to have their pet’s yearly checkup and grooming session done on the same day. Many Vancouver pet boarding locations offer these services side by side. The animals really enjoy their grooming session after their examination. The grooming salon session makes most animals look forward to their Vancouver animal hospital visit. The pets that are going home will be sent to the grooming salon for a quick bath and haircut. Animals that are just out of surgery will not be given a normal bath. The grooming professional will use a dry shampoo product to clean the fur and make the animal smell nice.
The pet should be brought into their yearly checkup at least ten minutes early. The staff will help the animal owner carefully weigh their pet. The pet’s weight will be inputted into the chart during each visit. Animals that lose or gain a lot of weight in a short period of time may be experiencing a health problem. If the health problem is treated early enough, it will not turn into a serious problem. The pet owner may need to pay for additional diagnostic tests that will determine the true condition affecting the animal.
If the pet appears to be seriously ill, it may need to stay overnight in the Vancouver animal hospital. The vet will hook the animal up to an IV that provides fluids and nutrients to the pet’s body. Sick pets become dehydrated extremely quickly if they are not hooked up to an IV. If the pet will not leave their IV alone, it may need to be medicated to help the pet relax. Most pets will leave the equipment alone once they are relaxed. The vet office usually allows one or two staff members to stay overnight with the pets. The staff members carefully watch over the animals to make sure they do not hurt themselves during the night. If any of the pets develop any complications during the night, the vet will be called in right away. The vet will assess and treat the pet before returning to their home for the night. Pets that do not need twenty four hour care may be sent home with their owners after a brief IV treatment. The pet owners will need to return to the clinic in the morning to hook the pet back up to the IV.
Pets that are given an IV treatment and the proper treatment for their condition will usually recover fairly quickly. If the current treatment is not working as expected, the pet owner and vet may need to have a discussion about different options. The pet owners will continue trying treatment options until one works. The pet owners can also take their pet into an acupuncturist or alternative therapy centre for pets in conjunction with their normal vet visits. The dual treatment plan usually helps pets find relief from their symptoms much faster. The pet owner can help their pet through the treatments by providing calm, soothing presence. If the pet owner exudes calmness, their pet will as well. Pet owners that are panicked or upset will send these vibes to their pet. The pet may act out or further injure itself during this ordeal. Pet owners should just try to stay calm and talk to their pet in a soft tone. As a result, the pet will quickly change their behavior to mimic their owner’s demeanor. Whenever you pet is sick or needs grooming take it to a Vancouver pet boarding facility.
