ROOSEVELT VETERINARY CENTER
Roosevelt Veterinary Center offers total wellness care for cats and dogs in a caring and friendly environment. We will treat your pet like they were a member of our own family.
Wellness care involves checking your dog or cat for illnesses and diseases, and making sure that he or she is up to date on all their vaccinations. These examinations involve checking the nose, mouth teeth, ears, coat and skin as well as feeling for any lumps or malformations in your pet. Additionally, we can check for fleas, ticks and heart worms, and perform routine dental cleanings. These examinations should be scheduled at least once a year.
The most important vaccination your cat or dog will receive in its life is the rabies vaccine. Rabies is a deadly virus that affects your pet’s central nervous system. It can be transmitted from wild and domestic unvaccinated animals through direct fluid to fluid contact, and it can be transmitted to humans via those same means. While humans can receive a serious of shots after being bitten, the disease in unvaccinated dogs and cats is fatal. In addition to rabies vaccines, we also offer feline leukemia, distemper, parvo virus, kennel cough and herpes vaccines. Vaccinations can be started as soon as your pet is weaned or between six and 12 weeks of age.
Having multiple sick pets or pets that dislike car trouble can make taking them to our veterinarian in Brewster very difficult. That’s why we offer house calls. We can perform wellness examinations, vaccination and treatments to your pet in their most comfortable environment, their home. We can also bring medications and collect samples during our house calls.
Dogs and cats are susceptible to various parasitic infections, including fleas, ticks, intestinal works and heart worms. We have products available to prevent and treat fleas, ticks and heartworms, and we can test your pet’s stool to determine if he or she is suffering from a parasitic infection.
Excessive plague, tartar, gingivitis and periodontal disease can affect your pet just like it can affect you, and infections in the mouth can travel through your pet’s blood stream and become life-threatening. For this reason, we recommend that you bring your pet in for a yearly dental examination and cleaning. These examinations can start as soon as your cat or dog is weaned.
Pets sometime become critically injured and ill. For those reasons, we offer emergency veterinary services. We have a veterinarian and team of specialists that will work to save your pet’s life no matter the injury, and we can perform emergency surgeries.
