No matter what type of pet you have, you probably consider them to be a member of your family. So if your beloved pet needs surgery, it’s important to find an experienced professional who can provide the care your pet deserves and the compassionate attitude that puts you at ease. At Veterinary Associates of Acadiana, we know how important your pet’s health is too. Our pet surgery services are designed to address the health issues so they can recover as quickly as possible.
Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health. Dental disease is associated with other serious health conditions, such as heart disease and kidney disease. We offer services to clean, treat, and extract teeth, and can provide options and instructions for at-home dental care.
Interested in pet preventive care? We strive to make sure your pets are as happy and healthy as possible. This means preventing illness and disease whenever possible. For most people, they think of vaccines and heartworm prevention when it comes to preventive care for their pets. However, there are many areas where we can help keep pets healthy including, but not limited to: nutrition, behavioral counseling, dental care and early detection labwork for those pets who may be at risk.
Heartworm disease has been diagnosed in all 50 states, but is especially prevalent in Lafayette and the surrounding areas. Heartworms can be found in both dogs and cats. It begins when your pet is bitten by a mosquito carrying heartworms. Indoor pets, not on a heartworm preventative, are frequently diagnosed with heartworms, as mosquitos often get in our homes through open doors and windows. Setup an appointment for a heartworm test with us and we will select a medication that is best suited for your pet.
Drs. Greg and Ashley have cared for our family’s pets for over a decade and always with patience and understanding. My husband and I have taken our furry friends in for wellness checkups, many broken nails, tooth extractions, tumor removals and when we’ve had to say that final goodbye. Each time they’ve taken the time to educate us, explain our options and just get to know us as people; not just their customers. We trust and choose Veterinary Associates of Acadiana!
