We want to be your partner in your pet’s care. Like any relationship, communication is important, and we hope you find value in your pet’s annual exams and check-ups. Bringing your pet to Tillema Veterinary Clinic for physical examinations is crucial to his or her health. We offer thorough physical examinations so that we can detect any potential problems before they become major problems. There are many pet health problems that can be avoided through regular physical exams, which is why we recommend that your pet has at least two examinations with our staff per year. While physical exams are critical to animal health, you can do your part too by being a vigilant pet owner. If you notice any irregularities with your pet, take detailed notes and bring him or her to our clinic for an examination.
There are several diseases that can afflict cats and dogs, but most pets can be protected from the worst of them if they are vaccinated properly. For dogs, these include parvovirus, distemper, and infectious hepatitis. For cats, these include panleukopaenia, feline herpesvirus, and feline calicivirus; for outdoor cats, protection can include feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukemia virus.
Before purchasing a horse, a pre-purchase exam is conducted to identify any preexisting problems that may hinder a horse’s future performance and reduce buyer risk.
Pregnancy Checks (Livestock)
Ultrasounds can be used to determine pregnancy and to monitor an ongoing pregnancy. Our doctors help ensure that your livestock will have a healthy pregnancy along the way.
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine includes the practice of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and diet. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin at strategic points along pathways called meridians. It is most commonly used to treat pain but is used for other ailments such as metabolic disorders, skin disease, and mental wellbeing. Acupuncture also affects myofascial tissue, a thin saran like wrapping that surrounds all muscles, muscle fibers, and nerves.
Tillema Veterinary Clinic can help manage your herd’s ongoing care to achieve optimum health. We’ll look at lifestyle, pasture quality, nutrition, and other health factors.
The combination of dehydration decreased forage, and inactivity all play a role in causing the dreaded ‘colic’. The accumulation of feed within your horse’s colon causes an impaction that manifests itself as abdominal pain. Early signs to watch for are decreased appetite and thirst and decreased manure production or hard manure. Other signs such as lying down or rolling, flank watching, and pawing are an indication that the colic is worsening. Call us immediately if you see your horse experiencing these symptoms.
Goat & Pig Hoof Trims
Are your goat or pig’s hooves growing too long? Call us today, and we will safely trim their hooves to a desirable length.
They may be called pets, but we all know they become much more. They become family, and deciding when it’s time to let go is one of the toughest moments any pet owner will face. When the quality-of-life becomes a concern, our clinic understands the importance of a pain-free and meaningful farewell. For many, at home euthanasia provides a familiar, comfortable environment for the pet and private space for the family to grieve.
We also offer care for your pet’s remains through our partnership with Only Cremations For Pets. Please call for additional information on remembrance options for your pet.
