Wellness & Vaccinations

What’s the best way to ensure that your animal companion enjoys a long, healthy life? The answer is simple: by making a commitment to ongoing wellness care. It’s the greatest gift you could ever give your pet. By bringing your pet in to be examined at least once a year, we are able to take the appropriate measures to both prevent disease and to catch it in its earliest stages. Disease prevention and early detection can add years to your companion’s life and greatly improve the quality of those years. Carlsbad Animal Hospital offers comprehensive wellness care for pets of all ages, to help extend and improve their lives and keep them as happy and healthy as possible. Let us get your pet on the path to a lifetime of good health.

Pets can be afflicted with many of the same skin problems humans can, such as allergies and infections. If you’ve ever experienced a skin condition like this, you know how unpleasant it can be. When your pet has a dermatological problem, it can cause everything from itchiness to discomfort and pain, and it can significantly diminish their quality of life. Don’t let your furry friend suffer another moment. Bring them to Carlsbad Animal Hospital for an evaluation. We are skilled and experienced in identifying, diagnosing and treating a broad range of pet dermatology problems, including those affecting the ears and feet. We can help your pet live a more comfortable life.

Does your dog or cat have stinky breath? Have your companion’s teeth been looking a little more yellow than white lately? If so, it could be a sign that your pet is suffering from some type of dental problem. If you’re not bringing your pet in for regular dental care and brushing their teeth at least three times a week, chances are your companion may have developed anything from plaque and tartar buildup to dental disease, a more serious medical condition that can eventually spread infection throughout the entire body. At Carlsbad Animal Hospital, we want to help your pet beat the odds and enjoy a clean, healthy mouth for life. We offer complete, professional pet dentistry services to meet all of your pet’s dental health care needs.

Laser Therapy

Over the past several decades, great strides have been made in terms of the technologies and treatment options that are available in veterinary medicine. One such advanced treatment option is laser therapy. This technique uses a therapeutic laser to painlessly target certain areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered trauma, effectively reducing pain and increasing the speed and efficiency with which healing takes place following injury or surgery. Laser therapy can be used to treat a broad spectrum of conditions, including arthritis and other painful disorders, and can assist with rehabilitation efforts. Carlsbad Animal Hospital is proud to offer this advanced treatment option to better serve our clients and the animals that they love.

House Calls

There are many reasons why responsible pet owners cannot bring their pets in to be treated at a veterinary clinic. Whether it’s due to lack of transportation, mobility issues, a pet that is too ill to be transported or suffers from veterinary visit anxiety, or just a schedule that is too jam-packed to fit trips to the veterinarian in. At Carlsbad Animal Hospital, we believe that every pet deserves the best available care, regardless of whether it’s received in our office or delivered to their door, which is why we’re happy to offer convenient house call services. If you can’t bring your animal friend in to see us, we’ll bring that care right to you!
