When you own a diabetic animal, you have a dedicated routine to follow and it is important to make sure your pet is eating well, to monitor their thirst, and any fluctuation in their weight. If your pet is on Insulin, their blood sugar levels should be regularly monitored to ensure you are giving the appropriate dose. We can work with your Veterinarian and report our observations to them. We can do blood glucose curves in the home allowing the animal to be tested in a more comfortable environment. We can also come to the home to administer Insulin Injections. This means you can feel safe knowing that your diabetic pet is cared for properly while you go away!

Cats with Kidney Insufficiency
If you own a cat that is showing signs of renal failure, your Veterinarian at a point may ask you to give your cat Subcutaneous Fluid Therapy at home. This is something YOU CAN DO if your cat will tolerate it. We can come to your home and teach you how to set up the supplies, administer the fluids, prepare the fluids for the next administration, and give you tips on how to handle and restrain your cat for subcutaneous fluid administration. We can come a couple times until you get the hang of it. Or we can continue to come as many as times as you need to feel comfortable doing it.
Clipping and/or Rounding the Nails is important to your pet’s health. Neglected nails can contribute to poor posture, slipping, falling, breaking or tearing of the nails, and arthritic pain. It is difficult to say how often your pet’s nails will need to be addressed. In general, if you can hear the nails “clicking” across a hard surface as they walk – they are due for a nail trim. Some pets have long quicks (nerve inside of the nail) and they may need more regular nail trimming. We are happy to set up a routine nail trimming visit or your can call us as needed.
Every dog will need its ears cleaned periodically. Which is something any pet owner can do at home once taught how to do it properly. Some dogs & cats have chronic ear problems from a build up of excess waxy debris in their ear canal. These pets will need frequent thorough ear cleanings to maintain the health of their ears. We use Veterinary recommended ear cleansing solution and soft gauze pads to clean your pet’s ears, we also use medical grade cotton swabs to scoop the wax out of the “nooks and crannies.”
We come prepared with a tarp, vacuum, and all of our tools -
Removal of the hair over the paw pads, the wispy hairs over the toes, the hair covering the genital area and the hind end. We will also trim any feathering on the back of the legs if requested.
Anal Gland Expression
Dogs have glands just inside of their anus called Anal Glands. These glands secrete odorous material over their bowel movements for identification purposes back in the days of the pack. They can secrete this material when nervous, frightened, or excited. Because we have bred dogs to be so different in size and shape -
