Acadia Veterinary hospital would like to be your partner in providing your pet with a long
and happy life.
Puppy & Kitten wellness care
Congratulation on adding a new member to your family. Your first
visit will be a little longer than normal so we can get you started on
the right foot. What can you and your pet expect on your first visit?
Your pet will receive a thorough health exam to identify any
preexisting medical issues and check for parasites. The doctor will
recommend the appropriate vaccinations, nutrition and discuss all
the important information you will need to promote your pet’s
good health. Most importantly we always take the time to answer
any of your questions or concerns.
Things to bring to your pets first visit:
Any information you may have been provided from the breeder, shelter or rescue group.
A stool sample (for parasite screening).
A list of questions or concerns.
Adult Wellness care
As your puppy or kitten grows into a dog or cat their needs change and so do your concerns. Early disease detection, providing appropriate vaccinations, identifying and treating dental problems, as well as discussing the management of behavioral and other issues all help extend the life and happiness of your companion.
Senior wellness care
You may be surprised that most dogs are considered senior at the age 8 years and Cats are considered senior at the age of 12 years. As people age, our activity and nutritional needs change. We are at an increased risk of developing cancers, diabetes, kidney disease and a host of other illnesses. Our pets are no different. That’s why at Acadia Veterinary Hospital we recommend blood work and other diagnostic tests as part of a senior wellness check. Early detection and prompt treatment can help extend both the length and quality of your pet’s life.
Dogs and cats can suffer from a wide range of medical conditions from simple aches and pains to infectious diseases and cancer. Once the problem has been diagnosed, the doctors and staff at Acadia Veterinary Hospital will develop an effective treatment plan that keeps both you and your pet in mind.
At Acadia Veterinary Hospital, we provide many different types
of surgeries, from routine spays and neuters to more complex
procedures and emergency surgery. Dr. Fine is highly skilled in
the most modern veterinary surgical techniques and our
well trained veterinary assistants are always on hand to ensure
the safety and comfort of each patient.
We understand that surgery can be stressful for you and your pet.
Our compassionate and knowledgeable staff is more than happy
to answer any questions you may have.
Doggie breath can be more than just an unpleasant smell. Did you know that a build-up of oral bacteria can enter the blood stream and cause damage to your pet’s heart, liver and kidneys? That is why our doctors check to make sure your pets teeth are healthy and clean as part of their yearly wellness exam. We carry a full range of dental products at our office. We also offer routine dental cleaning, dental scaling and extractions if necessary.
