Top 7 Pet Care Services Explained

Pet care is an essential aspect of responsible pet ownership. Our furry companions bring us joy and love, and it’s our duty to ensure they receive the best pet care services possible. Just like us, our pets need regular health check-ups and preventative measures to maintain their well-being.

By opting for professional pet care services like those offered at Spall & Harvey Veterinary Clinic, you can rest assured that your beloved four-legged friend will receive top-notch care from experienced veterinarians.


Animal Dentistry

Let’s face it; a pet’s smile is contagious! But to keep that smile beaming, dental care is crucial. Proper animal dentistry plays a significant role in your pet’s overall health. Studies show that 50% of all dogs and cats have some form of periodontal disease. Regular dental check-ups can help prevent dental issues like tartar buildup, gum disease, and tooth decay. Dental sticks also help to keep away plaque and cut back on tartar build up.

At Spall & Harvey in Kelowna we provide advanced dental care services to leave your pet with a sparkling smile!


Pet Diet & Nutrition

Just like with humans, a well-balanced diet is vital for pets’ health and longevity. Pet diet & nutrition is an essential component of their overall well-being. A balanced diet can help maintain a healthy weight, support the immune system, and keep fur shiny and smooth.

Our expert team will help you choose the right diet for your furry friend, ensuring a healthy and active life.

Pet Microchipping

We never want to think about our pets getting lost, but accidents can happen. That’s why pet microchipping is essential in the world of pet care. A tiny microchip containing a unique ID is implanted under your pet’s skin, and can be scanned by vets or animal shelters to identify your pet. The microchip procedure can be done at any age and lasts the whole life of the pet.

Spall & Harvey Veterinary Clinic is the place to go for microchipping in Kelowna!

Animal Vaccinations

Prevention is better than cure, and that’s why we have animal vaccinations. Regular vaccinations are essential to protect your pet from diseases. They help boost your pet’s immune system, ensuring they can fight off infections more effectively. Vaccinations are particularly important for puppies, kittens, and other young animals that have immature immune systems.

At Spall & Harvey, our experienced veterinarians create personalized vaccination schedules tailored to your pet’s needs.


Pet Wellness & Preventative Care

Your pet’s health should never be taken for granted. Just like humans, pets also need regular wellness check-ups to detect any potential health issues early on. Pet wellness & preventative care encompasses a range of services aimed at maintaining your pet’s health, from routine check-ups to blood work and other diagnostic tests. Annual wellness exams evaluate your pets overall health, detect problems before they become serious, and keep them on track to live a long, healthy life.

pet parasite control

Pet Parasite Control

Pesky parasites can wreak havoc on your pet’s health and happiness. Effective pet parasite control is crucial to keep fleas, ticks, and other parasites at bay. Not only can these critters cause discomfort for your pet, but they can also transmit dangerous diseases. If ingested while your pet is grooming themselves, fleas can transmit an intestinal parasite called tapeworm. Flea infestations can lead to anemia and fleas are also capable of transmitting serious diseases. Some tick bites only cause mild irritation or swelling at the site, but other tick bites can infect your pet with serious illnesses. If left untreated, these diseases, such as lyme, can lead to more severe health problems or even be fatal.

At Spall & Harvey, our veterinarians will remove ticks and recommend the best parasite control products to suit your pet’s needs, ensuring they can roam around happily without any unwanted hitchhikers!


Pet Surgical Services

In some cases, surgery may be necessary to treat certain health conditions or injuries in pets. Whether it’s a routine spay/neuter procedure or a more complex surgical intervention, having access to quality pet surgical services is vital. Our animal hospital performs elective surgeries such as spays and neuters. We also perform non-elective surgeries such as C-sections, mass removals, wound repairs, eye, ear, nose and throat surgeries. Prior to undergoing surgery, we perform a thorough physical exam. As not all problems can be detected on examination, we recommend our patients have pre-anesthetic blood testing prior to undergoing surgery.

Our state-of-the-art facilities and experienced surgical teams will provide the highest level of care for your pet during their surgical journey.
