Wellness exams and Vaccinations
Our experienced vets in Edmonton recommend bringing your dog or cat in for a check-up every 6 to 12 months. Just like in humans, early detection of any disease is vital and frequent check-ups can help identify minor concerns before they become major problems. Regular check-ups are also a great way to stay on track with booster shots to keep your dog or cat healthy all throughout his or her life.

When you bring your pet in, we can also check for parasites such as ear mites. Ear mites cause a great deal of discomfort and are extremely contagious. If we do find them on your pet, we will suggest our one-time-only ear mite treatment for your pet, and we also suggest you bring any other pets you may own in for a check-up and treatment to ensure that the parasite has not spread.
Vaccinations
To keep your dog or cat happy and healthy at every stage of his life, schedule a regular check-up! During your pet’s check-up, our staff will also administer all the vaccines your pet needs. Younger pets need to be brought in more frequently, usually at 6, 10 and 14 weeks of age, to begin their vaccinations. After these initial vaccinations, your pet will receive booster shots at future check-ups.
Vaccination is an essential part of maintaining your pet’s wellbeing. Keep your dog or cat’s immune system strong and protect them from certain diseases with convenient vaccination programs from West Edmonton Spay & Neuter/ Animal Hospital.
Illness and Disease Pet Care
If your pet suddenly becomes ill or contracts a disease, we can provide them with the proper treatment. Just like humans, pets can be susceptible to a number of different illnesses, but with the right medicine and anti-biotics they can start to feel better right away. If your pet is suffering from a chronic condition, we can provide you with the information and treatment options you need to keep them comfortable and manage their condition.
Spaying and Neutering
Spaying or neutering your pet is one of the most effective ways to extend his or her life expectancy. Not only does spaying and neutering prevent you from having to find homes for an unexpected litter of puppies or kittens, it can also lower levels of animal aggression and decrease the likelihood of contracting certain canine and feline diseases.
Hind Dewclaw Removal
Some dogs are born with an extra digit inside their paws, known as dewclaws. Many dogs find front dewclaws to be useful, but back dewclaws are looser and sometimes not properly attached. This can result in accidental detachments, an extremely painful event which could lead to infection. Our team strongly recommends getting your dog’s dewclaw removed, especially for dogs that like to dig or are very active indoors and outdoors. Removing dewclaws early is the best practice, our team finds.
Conveniently, our team can remove dewclaws during scheduled spaying or neutering procedures for a small additional fee. Older dogs are given anesthesia and younger dogs can undergo the surgery with local painkillers. Save time and save money by choosing West Edmonton Spay & Neuter/ Animal Hospital.
Canine and Feline Dentistry and Dental Care
During your pet’s regular check-up, our vets make sure to examine his or her mouth and teeth. If we find anything that needs attention, we’ll work with you to make a convenient dental cleaning appointment. From regular cleanings to extractions, we can do it all! Best of all, we’ll give you advice on how to keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy long after they leave our clinic.
Emergency Appointments
We know that health problems with your pets don’t happen on a schedule, which is why we are happy to provide emergency services and appointments. If your pet is suddenly sick or becomes hurt, call us right away and our team will be standing by to provide the proper emergency medical treatment.
Digital Radiology
Digital radiology is a faster and more efficient form of x-ray imaging. It can be hard enough to get your pet to relax and lie still even under the best circumstances, and it becomes more difficult when they are hurt and injured. Digital radiology means we can check your pet’s injury a quickly as possible and give them the treatment that they need.
Laboratory Blood Work and Blood Panels
Our team recommends bringing in your pet to have a blood panel done before surgery if they are 5 years old or younger. We’ll draw a small amount of blood from your pet and screen it to check for any elevated chemical levels. High levels of certain chemicals can indicate health problems in your pets. Blood panels are also an effective way of checking kidney and liver function and prevent complications related to anesthesia.
If your pet is older than 5, we require that you bring them in for a blood panel because older animals have a higher risk of suffering from kidney, liver or bone marrow disorders. A pet’s kidney or liver issues could cause complications if not found before administering anesthesia.
Parasite Prevention and Control
Getting outside and enjoying some fresh air and exercise is great for pets, but it also puts them at risk for parasites. Ticks, mites, fleas and nasty critters can jump from a branch to the fur of your pet and stick around for weeks. They can cause anything from itchiness and mild discomfort to chronic infection and other conditions. We can treat and remove all types of parasites carefully and properly in order to ensure that they are completely gone.
Pet Identification (Microchip, Tattoo)
If your pet becomes lost and winds up at the pound, the first thing officials there will look for is a pet microchip or tattoo. With professional microchipping or tattooing, a lost pet can find his way home quickly. Microchips and tattoos are superior to collars and tags, which can easily be removed or lost.
In order to implant a pet microchip, your dog or cat must be put under with anesthesia. Our team then inserts the chip between your pet’s shoulder blades. If he’s ever lost and brought to a shelter, the microchip can be scanned. After finding your pet’s individual ID number, he can be back at home, safe and sound, within hours.
Tattooing is another option. It lets shelters and pounds know that an animal is not a stray. At our clinic, tattoos are done within your pet’s left ear. Shelter and pound workers are trained to immediately search for a microchip or tattoo after receiving a new animal.

Nutrition Counselling and Weight Management
Proper nutrition is key to ensuring that your pet lives a long and healthy life. There is not one nutrition plan that will work for all types of pets, which is why we will work with you one-on-one to design a customized plan. Whether you have a large Rottweiler or a small cat, we have the right information you need to keep them full and healthy. If your pet is having a little trouble shedding those winter pounds, we can also help with weight loss management.
End of Life Care
Our pets are one of the happiest parts of our lives, but as they age and their health issues increase it is important to prepare for the right end of life care. We recognize that this is never an easy decision and we will do everything we can to make sure your pet is comfortable and happy for as long as possible. When the time comes, we can ensure that is respectful, gentle and pain-free.
