Pain is a terrible thing. At St. Francis Animal Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, we want to alleviate as much pain and discomfort in our patients as possible. In an effort to bring you the highest quality care, we are dedicated to providing top-notch pain management.
When our pets are in pain, so are we. It's an awful feeling to know that your special friend is hurting, especially when there isn't anything you can do to help them. It is our goal to eliminate as much pain as we can, and to give these pets a better quality of life.
We also anticipate and plan for procedures with the potential for future pain. In addition, we work with pet owners to educate them on how to recognize signs of pain in your pet.
The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it's also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.
At St. Francis Animal Hospital, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. But pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.
The cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive and stressful on your pet. Parasites like heartworm can even be fatal, so preventing parasites is of the utmost importance.
We believe the best way to promote overall health is through preventative care. Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet's health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems.
We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
Give us a call today to learn more about preventative medicine and how we can care for your pet.
