Do you know the number one disease affecting cats and dogs today? If you guessed dental disease, you're right! According to the American Veterinary Dental College, most dogs and cats have some evidence of periodontal (dental) disease by the age of three, and it often goes untreated.

Periodontal disease isn’t just about bad breath, although that is one of the first signs that your pet’s mouth isn’t healthy. It can cause discomfort, tooth loss, gum inflammation and eating problems for your pet. And do you see your dog panting when she gets hot or excited? All that air is passing over teeth and gums full of plaque, tartar, and bacteria, which can get into your pet’s lungs and cause chronic respiratory issues.

At later stages, that bacteria can enter your dog or cat’s bloodstream and cause serious problems for the heart and other vital organs.

At College Park Veterinary Clinic we understand that dental disease is a preventable issue and strive to provide you with the at home tools and in-clinic treatment to maintain good oral health and prevent dental problems. In addition to regular dental exams, we offer full pet dental care, including:

  • Anesthetic cleaning and polishing
  • Digital dental X-rays to see below the gumline where most dental disease is present
  • Extractions when necessary
  • Oral surgery

Call us today for a free dental consult with one of our trained veterinary staff!

At College Park Road Veterinary Clinic, our approach to veterinary care is to try and prevent illness. We want to catch issues before your pet is seriously ill with a major health problem, and when they’re easier to treat and have better outcomes. To do that, we recommend regular wellness and preventive care which includes:

Annual Exams: At a wellness exam, our veterinarian will assess your pet’s physical health from nose to tail and perform a diagnostic work-up, which can also include blood, fecal, and urine screenings.

We offer wellness packages for puppies and kittens that include all the routine services your pet needs to maintain excellent health at a reasonable price. We also have fixed-price wellness packages for adult pets that are designed with lifestyle and age taken into consideration. Ask your veterinarian for details and he or she can help you determine which package is the right fit for you and your pet.

Routine Dental Care: Dental disease is the number one diagnosed health problem in dogs and cats across America. We will closely monitor your pet’s oral health, give you the information and tools to provide preventative care at home, and if needed we can provide regular dental cleanings. These cleanings also include a thorough evaluation of your pet’s mouth and teeth as well as digital dental X-rays for an accurate assessment.

Parasite Prevention: Parasites can cause significant disease in your pet, and potentially death. It’s a common misconception that you will see all parasites in your pet’s stool, or that primarily indoor pets aren’t at risk of getting parasites. All pets are at risk for fleas, ticks, heartworm, and intestinal parasites, and many can only be found through microscopic exam or specific testing.

What’s also not widely understood is that many of these parasites and the diseases they can carry are zoonotic—meaning they can be transmitted to your human family as well, especially children. Regular screening is a must, and we offer many options for parasite prevention. Your veterinarian can help you determine which one is best for your pet and your budget, so you can keep your entire family safe and well.

To schedule an appointment for your pet, call us at 843-797-1493.

Laser therapy has been used on pets for many years to promote healing and relieve pain and inflammation—and the best part? It’s drug-free, non-invasive, and has no side effects!

By focusing red and infrared light on tissue at and below the surface of the skin, we can promote and speed healing as well as stimulate the body to produce pain-relieving hormones. Laser therapy treatments for pets usually only take 5-10 minutes, requires no sedation, and has been effective in treating:

  • Arthritis
  • Joint injuries
  • Hot spots
  • Ear infection
  • Wounds
  • Anal gland problems
  • Chronic nasal congestion
  • Gingivitis/Stomatitis
  • Chronic abdominal inflammation

We’d love to show you how laser therapy can help your pet have improved quality of life—give us a call at 843-797-1493 and find out if this innovative treatment is right for your pet.

READ ABOUT PORKCHOP—A LASER THERAPY SUCCESS STORY!

Porkchop came to see us when she was 13 years old and suffering from severe arthritis pain in her hips, knees, and joints. Her family told us that she rarely moved around much, even requiring hand feeding because it was too painful for her to get up and stand at her food bowl. She was also hiding from grandchildren, refusing walks, and only with great difficulty was she able to get outside to go potty.

We suggested laser therapy, and after Porkchop’s first appointment, her family reported she seemed to feel better and was limping less when she did walk. Three months and several laser therapy sessions later, Porkchop is back to playing with the grandkids when they visit, going for regular strolls around the block, and has lost seven pounds (quite a bit for a 48-lb dog!).

Porkchop’s life was significantly improved by laser therapy in just a few short months, and her family couldn’t be happier!

It can be a very nerve-racking time when a family member must have a surgical procedure done. At College Park Road Veterinary Clinic, we take every procedure seriously – providing the most advanced pain control, monitoring and surgical techniques possible. We have licensed veterinary technicians that have further certifications in anesthesia and pain management assisting our doctors while your pet is in our care.

Our surgical services include regular communication with you while your pet is with us for surgery. Prior to your pet’s procedure, a staff member will discuss the operation, answer any questions you might have, and go over a detailed estimate so you have a full understanding of everything.

Our doctors have done extensive training to become proficient in many different areas of surgery so that we can keep all your veterinary care in the same clinic. This means we can offer more surgical procedures than the average veterinary practice, including:

  • Spay and neuter
  • Mass/growth removal/biopsies
  • Orthopedic (musculoskeletal procedures): TTA, lateral suture repair of torn ACL, FHO (femoral head osteotomy), Luxating patella repair, some fracture repairs, limb, toe, or tail amputations
  • Emergency surgeries: Foreign body/intestinal obstruction surgery, splenectomy, cystotomy, wound/laceration repairs, internal mass removal/biopsy, gall bladder surgery

We’ll make sure to stay in communication with you throughout the day, and once complete, our doctor will call to discuss the details of your pet's surgery. During the discharge appointment, we will provide you with a detailed aftercare plan, and our staff will discuss this and answer any questions you may have, so you leave feeling secure in how to care for your pet while he or she recovers.

You can also expect us to check in with you in the days following surgery. We do complimentary recheck exams in the weeks following any procedure to make sure everything is healing correctly and that all concerns have been addressed. or any concerns can be addressed.

If you are considering veterinary surgery for your pet, please contact us at 843-797-1493 to schedule a consultation with your College Park Road Veterinary Clinic veterinarian.

Unfortunately, our pets can’t tell us when they don’t feel good, where they hurt, or why they are suffering—and by the time we see the symptoms, problems can be far advanced.

Luckily, the doctors and staff at College Park Road Veterinary Clinic are well-trained diagnostic detectives! Every day we investigate a variety of cases using years of experience and the latest diagnostic tools to uncover health problems and get our patients feeling better quickly.

These tools include:

  • In-House Laboratory
  • Digital Radiography: Accurate and detailed X-rays of your pet taken with the click of a button. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time image of an animal’s body. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools like X-rays, ultrasounds can help identify disease, blockages, skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage and other internal injuries. We have a certified ultrasonographer on staff who can instantly give us a more in-depth view of what is going on internally.

X-rays and ultrasounds often require the patient to remain still, so sedation may be necessary. If so, the duration of sedation is usually short and patient recovery is swift.

Have questions about our diagnostics or need to make an appointment for your pet? Call us at (843) 797-1493!

 

When your pet doesn’t feel well, one of the first things a veterinarian may want to do is lab testing of blood and/or other bodily excretions. At College Park Road Veterinary Clinic, we have an in-house lab so many of these screenings can be done on site, saving time and money.

In most cases, we can get results within 30 minutes for routine testing such as:

  • Full blood work: chemistry, CBC, heartworm test, feline Leukemia, FIV tests, specific pancreatic and kidney testing, and glucose monitoring for diabetes
  • Fecal screening: for parvo virus, intestinal parasites, and extreme bacterial infections
  • Urine testing
  • Cytology – microscopic examination of samples collected from skin or ear infections, growths or tumors, or fluid collected

Have questions about lab testing or need to schedule your pet for an appointment? Just give us a call at 843-797-1493.

It's never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet, and we want to help make that difficult time more manageable by providing compassionate hospice and euthanasia services for your pet.

At CPRVC, we provide a quiet "comfort room" at the hospital where you can be with your animal companion through the process and when they pass, and we will give you the space and time you need to say goodbye. We also offer check-out upon arrival to ensure that there is no need to speak to anyone when you are ready to go home. 

Whenever you're ready to make that decision, our veterinarians will be with you every step of the way. Our staff can help with recommendations for aftercare, such as cremation. We know it won't be an easy call to make, but please don't hesitate to reach out to us if we can assist you with end-of-life care for your pet.

Having a new pet is an exciting time. Just like a new baby, they grow and change so quickly! We know you want to start your puppy or kitten’s life off on the right paw, but it can be confusing to know exactly what your new pet needs. Well, that’s why we’re here!

College Park Road Veterinary Clinic has developed an all-inclusive plan that provides you and your puppy or kitten with everything needed to ensure a healthy, happy start.

  • Examinations: Your puppy or kitten will need three to four monthly examinations during his or her first year. We’ll monitor your pet’s growth and make sure everything is developing properly. Puppies and kittens grow so fast, if there are any developmental issues, we want to catch them right away so they can be corrected or can minimize their effect on the rest of your pet’s life.
  • Vaccinations: Very young animals do not have full immunity from disease, which makes it extremely important that they get their vaccinations on schedule. In this area, parvovirus is a well-known disease that is highly contagious and can kill a young dog in as little as 24-48 hours. It can live in soil for up to a year and so it is vitally important to vaccinate our puppies from this horrible disease as well as others.
  • Parasite Testing, Treatment and Prevention: One of the most common problems in young kittens and puppies is parasites—everything from intestinal worms to fleas, ticks, and ear mites. You may become aware that your puppy has worms (most do) by seeing them in the stool, but many parasites can’t be seen without a microscope or specific testing. Before you spend money on a less expensive dewormer at a feed store, you should be aware that over the counter products like these don’t always work for every kind of parasite. You might also be treating your pet for something he or she doesn’t have, which isn’t good either. When you bring your pet in to see us for an exam and testing, we will identify everything your pet needs and then give him or her the appropriate treatment. We won’t miss anything, and your pet will get only the medicine needed.
  • Training and Behavioral Consultation: Whether this is your very first pet or you are a veteran pet parent, the new puppy or kitten you have just adopted is a fresh start. We can provide advice, tips, and even trainer recommendations to enable you to raise a well-mannered pet that can join your pack and enhance your family’s life.
  • Spay and Neuter: Dogs and cats mature very quickly, and can become parents themselves well before they’re even a year old. Spaying and neutering not only prevents unwanted litters of pets, but also has significant health benefits. Our veterinarians will help you determine the right time for your pet to have this procedure done, and when it is time, we’ll perform the surgery in our hospital providing the safest and highest level of care and monitoring.

If you have a new furry family member and want to get them started off right, give us a call at (843) 797-1493 or request an appointment online.

Enjoy this testimonial from one of our happy guests:

“So off we went in the car, and I was so excited to see what adventure was in store! We pulled into a parking lot, and mom took me inside a building where there was a nice lady who gave me treats. I like this place already!

After my mom talked to the nice lady for a few minutes she gave me a kiss and allowed the lady to take me on to explore. I hardly noticed my Mom did not come with us, I was so excited by all the new sights and smells!

First the nice lady took me to a big area outside where the grass was different than at home, but soft and nice to run on. Then around the corner came another fluffy little dog wanting to play. We said hello, sniffed each other and started to play chase. ”Roxy” and I had so much fun! Slowly, one by one, new friends joined us, and we ran and chased each other and there were other humans there that threw balls for us and made sure everyone was getting along.

Pretty soon we were all zonked, and the nice humans took us inside where there was air-conditioning and fans, and we all took a nap. I even had my own bed, water bowl, and cozy place to sleep.

After my nap, I got to go back outside to play with my friends again, but it started to get hot so one of the humans walked me over to an area I could only describe as Utopia. There were pools of refreshing cool water, and I laid down in one right NOW! Also, there was a dancing robot throwing water through the air and a big fan blowing cool air across my fur. I never wanted to leave!

Later on, I was walked over to meet a very sweet lady who pampered me from nose to tail! First, she gave me a refreshing bath in a giant bathtub that had giant stairs so no one had to try and pick me up (I’m a pretty big fella from what my mom says!) Then she gave me a pedicure, cleaned my ears, and I’m not sure if I got a massage or just a good brushing, but man, it felt great! Finally, she got me looking spiffy by tying a bandana around my neck. I could not wait to show my Mom.

I waited for a few minutes in a fun room where I could play some more until my mom walked in to pick me up. Just when I didn’t think things could get any better, I was given ice cream! WHAT?! Who’s a good boy?? Me!

I was so excited to see her and tell her all about my amazing day! I jumped up and down, wagged my tail, and gave my best excited howl all to let her know how happy I was. I really hope she brings me back again tomorrow! I told her I even hear they let dogs and cats stay overnight!”
