What To Expect
What To Expect
Once a year, you should take your pet in for an annual wellness exam. Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. We recommend that you keep a journal of your pet’s health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts, so you can monitor any changes. If you have a pet journal of something like it, please bring it to your pet’s annual wellness exam. If not, please be prepared to give us a verbal account of your pet’s history and health.
In some circumstances, the doctor will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
To help pet owners prepare themselves and their pets for surgery, we provide pre-operative exams and clear instructions on how you must ready your pets for scheduled procedures. We administer anesthetic with extreme care, customized to suit each individual animal’s health, size and age. Post-operative medications and instructions for nursing your pet through recovery are provided and may include activity restrictions and wound dressing changes. Your pet may also receive follow-up evaluations to confirm that the surgery was successful and that surgical wounds are healing.
Like people, animals can have dental problems that can affect their overall health. We provide a full-range of dental services for pets and other animals.
Pet Physical Rehab
When pets have been injured or required surgery for an injury, physical rehabilitation is needed to restore full functionality. The Brunswick Veterinary Clinic is the only facility that provides this service in Mid-Coast Maine.
Our diagnostic tests may include blood draws, fine needle aspirates of growths/masses, ear swabs for cytology, urine collection for urinalysis, skin scrapes/cultures, x-rays or ultrasound, and more.
Our veterinary staff and Drs. Parthum, Hayhurst, Cowan, and Stasolla are available to improve your pet’s health and well-being.
