We believe that we truly cannot be effective in veterinary care without you, our clients, being educated and involved in each step of the process. We’ll work with you to provide information, education, and options to you to fulfill your specific needs and expectations for your pet. We are part of your team to care for your pets. We cannot do it without you. Scroll down for information on the following for your pet:
Keeping your pets in good health means giving them a great quality of life and keeping a long-lasting connection with them. This starts with wellness care as puppies and kittens and extends into their care as senior pets. With every step in between, we will be there with you to make your time with them the most meaningful that it can be.
Sometimes, managing your pet’s health and wellness includes considering surgery. From elective spay and neuter surgeries, to skin mass removals and internal or orthopedic surgery you need to be an informed participant to make the best decisions. At Lakeland Veterinary Hospital we offer a wide variety of surgical procedures and have access to the area’s best and most experienced surgery specialists for the more complicated procedures. Often times, these specialty procedures can be performed at our clinic. We know that the road to recovery just begins when they leave the hospital so our team will be there to support you along the path to recovery for your pets.
Providing the best care for your pet when they are ill includes your necessary participation. From providing a detailed history of events leading up to the illness, to interpreting your pets response to therapy and nursing care you are an integral part of your pet’s healing. Sometimes, when our pets are sick they need to have laboratory tests or x-rays taken to determine the cause of the illness. At Lakeland Veterinary Hospital we have state of the art digital x-rays and cutting edge laboratory equipment to help us determine what the cause of illness is and how to best treat it.
Dental disease is by far the most common disease that affects our pets. Your pet's teeth are essentially the same as your own. Think about all the things that your dentist asks you to do to care for your teeth. Dental disease very often goes unnoticed because oral pain and infection are hard to detect. Dental disease and pain can dramatically decrease the quality of life in for your pets and have been linked to heart disease, kidney disease and other systemic illnesses (for both people and our pets). Caring for your pet’s oral health is an important part of wellness care and it's also one of Dr. Riemer’s areas of special interest so please ask us how we can help.
We believe that early detection and management of behaviors is critical to encouraging the behaviors that we want to see in pets. The well-behaved pet can travel many places and enjoy activities with their families. Ask us how you can help your cats and dogs be well mannered, well trained, and well behaved.
At Lakeland Veterinary Hospital we want to develop lasting relationships with our clients. To do this we feel that transparency and involvement are important. To honor that belief, we have listed many of our prices here on the website. However, it is important to remember that each care situation can vary greatly and have other costs associated in providing care to your pet. We will always strive to provide you with the most comprehensive estimate for any testing, treatments, or care. When possible, we will provide for you options for the treatment of your pet and support your decisions of what is best for your family and your pets.
