Preventative Health and Well-Being Care
We plan on being there for all stages of your pet’s life. Starting with puppy and kitten examinations, we’ll make sure your pet is always on the right track. This includes:
- Vaccinations that are personalized for your pet’s needs.
- Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention and education.
- Nutritional counseling
- Behavioral guidance
Included in our wellness care is a full nose-to-tail examination annually, and semi-annually for senior pets.
As our pets age, their needs change. We want to make sure that your senior pet’s care is being kept up with. Since dogs and cats age much faster than we do, we’d prefer to see them at least twice a year. This preventative care includes:
- Detecting early stage diseases
- Nutrition and weight management
- Pain management
Complete Laboratory Analysis

We’re committed to providing efficient and accurate results for the benefit of your pet thanks to our extensive laboratory capabilities.
Oral health is a very important part of your pet’s overall well-being. Not only is dental disease painful for your pet, but it is a chronic source of infection which your pet’s immune system has to work hard to control. If your pet has bad breath, chances are he has an infection in his mouth.
At Finan Animal Hospital we will evaluate your pet’s oral health and make recommendations for the best course of action. Often this will involve a full oral exam under general anesthesia. During this oral evaluation, we will take digital radiographs of every tooth. The radiographs will be evaluated for signs of infection, fractures, or bone loss. If infected or painful teeth are seen on x-rays, the tooth will be extracted at that time. The remaining teeth will be scaled and polished. The full oral cavity will be checked for growths or signs of oral cancer.

Digital Diagnostic Imaging
To better visualize your pet’s bony structures and two dimensional views of internal organs, we offer digital x-rays. Our technicians are specially trained to precisely position and acquire x-rays in a timely manner. This means faster results and less stress for your pet.
Ultrasonography is a diagnostic imaging technique similar to radiography (X-rays) and is usually used in conjunction with radiography. This technology offers our veterinary team visualization of the deep structures within the body.
Ultrasound allows for examination of the animal’s internal organs. It can also be used to determine pregnancy and to monitor an ongoing pregnancy. Ultrasound can detect fluid, cysts, tumors or abscesses within the abdominal cavity.
Pharmacy And Prescription Foods
