Canine and feline behavior problems can be a real challenge to correct, but with a little forethought and the right information, owners can easily prevent most common problems. Many owners begin their relationship with the new pet armed with misinformation and an idealistic view of the pet-owner relationship. Our behavior counseling begins with the first puppy or kitten examination and continues throughout the life of the pet.

Impact of dental care:
What is the difference between your teeth and your pet’s teeth? The answer is, very little! Fractured teeth, tooth abscesses, infection and inflamed gums are painful in your mouth and theirs. The statistics are staggering!! A 2001 research study showed 80% of dogs and 70% of cats will have significant dental disease by the time they are 3 years old.

We have discovered over the past decade that our pets demonstrate their pain in much more subtle ways than we realized, and that they have been suffering in silence for years. This sobering realization has caused an explosion in research into the understanding of pain and effective ways to recognize and treat pain in out patients. The staff of Village Animal Hospital practice comprehensive pain management for the comfort and well-being of the patients.
A broad range of standard and specialized radiology technique are possible for diagnostic imaging and cases management. Evaluation by a Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist is utilized when appropriate.
Hardly a day goes by that we are not prompted through public service announcements (PSA) in the media to play a more active role in our personal healthcare. PSAs educate us about the benefits of routine screening for diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. We have been taught the ABCs of skin cancer and risks of obesity and smoking and need for a colonoscopy. Early detection of health risks and disease gives wisdom to the saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". This wisdom should be applied to our family pets as well.
