Each year your pet can age as much as a human does in seven years! This means that if your pet has not been to the veterinarian in the past year, it is the equivalent of a human not having a check up in seven years. It is very important to schedule yearly exams for your pet, especially after they reach the age of five.
Typically, your new puppy or kitten may be spayed or neutered at six months of age. Also, your pet can still have the procedure performed after reaching adulthood. Call Algiers Animal Clinic today to schedule your pet’s spay or neuter procedure!
Similar to human food intake, a diet that is low in fat and high in protein is essential to the life of your pet. Algiers Animal Clinic offers the newest and most efficient food for you pet available today. We can custom fit a diet to your specific pet's needs.
Each individual procedure will vary from pet to pet and condition to condition. Typically a physical examination, review of the patients' medical history and blood work are recommended for each pet that may have to be subjected to sedation or anesthesia. As with humans, the older the individual the more precautions need to be taken.
Parasite preventatives have advanced greatly over the past ten years. Algiers Animal Clinic keeps pace with these changes by researching and determining the products that are best for your pets. Our pharmacy is fully stocked and ready to eliminate possible pests today!
