Preventive Care & Vaccines

Did you know that many of the diseases and illnesses that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper pet vaccinations? There are a number of diseases that can afflict cats and dogs, but most pets can be protected from the worst of them if they are vaccinated properly. 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.

Spay and Neuter

Our hospital recommends that most cats and dogs be spayed (female pets) or neutered (male pets), unless there are plans to breed them as part of a responsible breeding program. We also support delayed spaying and neutering for some pets based on the pet’s breed and lifestyle. Our veterinarians make customized recommendations on timing of spaying and neutering for each patient and are ready to answer your questions. We’re here to help!

Our team’s number one priority is patient safety and pain management, so we use advanced anesthetic monitoring techniques to make surgery and anesthesia as safe as possible. We hospital veterinarians are able to offer many common surgeries, and we also partner with a mobile surgery specialist to offer specialty surgery in the comfort of your home veterinary hospital. 

Feline Medicine

Our veterinary staff is skilled in diagnosing and treating feline internal medicine cases. In the event your cat becomes ill, your pet will receive a thorough examination, and we will discuss all of your treatment options to determine the proper protocol for your pet.

Pediatric Care

Our vets recommend that you set up your pet’s first visit with us as soon as possible. It’s important to get your new pet set up with a good parasite and vaccination program as well as a thorough examination to assure your puppy or kitten is healthy and prepared to stay that way.

Hospice Care and Euthanasia

Our pets fill our lives with joy and love, and managing their end-of-life care is always a heartbreaking challenge. We strive to give our pets the best life possible, and that includes giving them a peaceful and respectful death.

Hospice Care – As your pet nears the end of their life, our goal is often to prioritize comfort and freedom from suffering in their final weeks or months. Often there are interventions which can improve your pet’s quality of life, such as medication for pain relief, appetite stimulants, or techniques to improve their mobility. An individualized hospice care plan starts with a thorough discussion of your pet’s lifestyle and a physical examination. Although it is often impossible to know when it’s the “right time” to say your final goodbye, we are here to help you make that decision when the time comes.

Euthanasia – Your pet will first receive a dose of medication which will sedate them and relieve any pain they may be feeling. After this medication has taken effect, we will proceed with gentle euthanasia. You have the option of receiving a clay pawprint keepsake, made onsite. As a courtesy, we will also notify any other veterinarians involved in your pet’s care that your pet has passed.

Communal Cremation – If you do not wish to bury your pet at home or you are unable to do so, you may elect to have your pet cremated. Communal cremation is an option for families who do not wish to have their pet’s ashes returned to them. All cremations are done through Agape Pet Services, and the ashes are respectfully spread on a local family homestead.

Private Cremation – This is an option for families who wish to have their pet’s ashes returned to them. With this option, your pet is the only pet in the cremation chamber during the cremation process. Agape Pet Services offers a variety of memorial products to help you remember your beloved pet. After the cremation process is complete, your pet’s ashes are hand-delivered to your home.

Dental Care

Oral health is vital to your pet’s overall well-being. As a pet owner, you should be examining your pet’s teeth on a regular basis to check for signs of dental disease. The symptoms of dental disease include:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Red, inflamed gums
  • Discolorations on the teeth and gums
  • Discomfort while eating
  • Reluctance to eat
  • Sores in the mouth
  • Loose, chipped, cracked, or missing teeth
  • Very bad breath

If your pet displays any of the above symptoms, this could be a clear sign that your pet needs to have his or her teeth examined and cleaned.

Fear Free Environment

Our Fear Free environment will help make your pet’s visit better every time. Our team is dedicated to caring for your pet’s emotional well-being as well as his or her physical well-being during their visit.

Geriatric Care

We help address your pet’s changing needs and balancing treatments for disease symptoms and progression.

Reproductive Health

We believe that lifetime health starts before a pet is even born! Dr. Kristian Belton and Dr. Courtney Shaw are passionate about reproductive medicine (called theriogenology). Dr. Belton served on the Board of Directors for the Society for Theriogenology from 2017 – 2023 and creates content for responsible breeders at Dr. Shaw breeds and shows Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and served on the Board of Directors for the Central Carolina Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club from 2021 – 2023. 

We are able to offer comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including breeding soundness examinations, health testing, breeding management, semen collection, insemination, pregnancy management, c-sections, whelping assistance, and neonatal care.

House Calls

Life can get busy, and we understand that visiting the veterinary clinic isn’t always the easiest option for you and your pets. With our house call service, you and your furry companions can avoid the stress and discomfort of traveling, making the entire experience much more relaxed and enjoyable.
