intimidating for both pet owners and their pets. We want you to know that we value your pets and want to make your first and every subsequent visit you have with us a comfortable one.

, Dr. Drake, has decades of experience providing veterinary care for animals, and he and his caring staff are committed to providing a nurturing experience every time you visit. Our goal is to provide comprehensive pet wellness care, while empowering pet owners to provide good preventive care from the comfort of home.
We see dogs and cats of all ages and we also welcome reptiles and pocket pets. Our animal hospital provides standard pet wellness care
services, including pet vaccinations, routine annual exams, pet dental care, diagnostic services and a variety of non-invasive and surgical treatment options. We also offer in-house ultrasound and radiology to ensure your pet receives a quick and thorough diagnosis.
The Importance of Preventive Care for Dogs and Cats
Preventive pet care
is one of the most important aspects of caring for dogs and cats. Research has shown that dogs and cats that have been given proper preventive care at home in an animal hospital or clinic are less susceptible to disease and are more likely to live longer, healthier lives.
Too often pet owners wait until their dogs and cats develop health complications or symptoms before bringing them to visit our Las Vegas veterinarian. Often, diseases are far more advanced at this point, making them more difficult to treat and making it more difficult for pets to make a full recovery. Although our office can treat a number of illnesses and diseases, the easiest way to treat them is by preventing them from ever occurring in the first place.
A great number of the diseases we see are completely preventable. For example, oral health problems, such as periodontal disease, are benefit from routine pet dental care which includes regular teeth brushing and professional veterinary teeth cleanings. Other diseases, such as parvo and the canine flu, are preventable with the proper pet vaccinations, which we also offer in our office.
If you are a first-time pet owner or are unsure of how to provide proper pet wellness care for your animals, our knowledgeable staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have. When you are looking for a Las Vegas veterinarian
that provides comprehensive preventive and curative care, make an appointment with us today and contact us at 702-675-8366
