Dental

Dental disease is one of the most common health conditions we see in pets over 3 years of age. It is typically painful, and can even shorten the lifespan of dogs and cats. It works by progressively eroding the supporting tissue in your pet’s mouth, and by spreading harmful bacteria throughout your pet’s bloodstream. But not to worry – dental disease is no match for our veterinary team! Through routine cleaning procedures and proper home care, your pet can be pain-free, and it could even extend their lifespan!

Wellness Exams

At Loving Family Animal Hospital, we believe that regular checkups and wellness exams are critical to your pet's well-being. These wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet while also giving us a baseline for their own unique bodies and tendencies.

Not only do these exams keep us up to date with your pet's health, they also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious ones. Your pet will be thoroughly examined by a veterinarian and this checkup gives us vital information to help keep your pet healthy.

Regular wellness exams also make your pet more familiar with our veterinary hospital, and makes future visits easier on them and you. Please contact us today if you have any questions or would like to learn more about how we care for your pet.

Laser Therapy

Microchipping

At Loving Family Animal Hospital, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It's a tragedy that happens all too often. But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet's safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet's fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure, and is completely safe.

This microchip is registered with your pet's vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.

Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.

Nutritional Counseling

Loving Family Animal Hospital offers nutritional counseling for pets owners of Aurora, CO. If you have any questions about your pet's diet or if you would like more information, please contact us today so we can set up a nutrition plan for your pet.

Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to overfeed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.

A pet's nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet's needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for them and their lifestyle. Please contact us if you have any questions, we would love to speak with you.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites can affect your pet in a variety of ways, ranging from simple irritation to causing life-threatening conditions if left untreated. And while parasites can affect your pet year round, they are especially vulnerable as the temperatures rise and we spend more time outdoors. Luckily, as your veterinarian we can help prevent, accurately diagnose, and safely treat parasites and other health problems that not only affect your dog or cat, but also the safety of you and your family. Responsible pet parasite control can reduce the risks associated with transmission of parasitic diseases from pets to people. By following a few simple guidelines, pet owners can better protect their pets and their family. Review this checklist provided by the Companion Animal Parasite Council.

  • Practice good personal hygiene.
  • Use a preventative flea and/or tick treatment year-round.
  • Only feed pets cooked or prepared food (not raw meat).
  • Minimize exposure to high-traffic pet areas.
  • Clean up pet feces regularly.
  • Visit your veterinarian for annual testing and physical examination.
  • De-worming medications as recommended by your veterinarian.
  • Ask your veterinarian about parasite infection risks and effective year-round preventative control measures de-worming medications monthly.
