Our Veterinary Services in Harrisburg, NC

Almost every veterinarian in Harrisburg, NC boards pets before and after surgery. They usually have X-ray equipment and a lab. Veterinarians may or may not have their own pharmacy. That’s where we come into the picture. In addition to surgeries, we have laser therapy, radiology, and our own pharmacy.

Did you know that brushing your pet’s teeth is just as important as brushing your own? They get dental problems, too, which bad breath is a symptom of. Keep in mind that our pets are descended from wild animals, and they instinctively try to hide any pain they might be feeling. We’ll check your pet’s teeth and gums to make sure nothing will cause pain or other problems.

Another area of your pet’s health you should be aware of are the pads of your pet’s paws. Yeast infections, red toenails and some discharge are indicative of an allergy. Licking the pads and toenails excessively will tell you your pet needs to see the doctor. First, we’ll treat the exterior. If the anti-fungal medications and shampoos don’t do the trick, then we’ll deal with the problem from the inside. We’ll try antihistamines and anti-itch medicines in addition to eliminating any food allergies to which the pet may be exposed.
