Your pet’s lifelong wellness begins with his or her very first visit as a puppy or kitten. It is our goal to keep your pets happy and healthy for many years. Much like their human counterparts, the key to achieving lifelong wellness for pets is prevention, attention, and early detection. We hope to catch diseases or problems as early as possible and then devise a plan to address these issues before they become more serious. We recommend annual or semi-annual check-ups for your companions. These exams will allow us to catch the very earliest signs of problems and early detection is paramount to pet longevity.
Sometimes your pet may require surgery and we know how important it is for you to understand the procedure and feel safe leaving your friend in our care. At Rosemont Veterinary Hospital we perform many surgical procedures including spay/neuter surgeries, mass removals, laceration repairs, exploratory surgeries, biopsies, and amputations to name only a few. We pride ourselves on making every procedure as safe as possible, using our state of the art monitoring equipment and the combined years of experience of our doctors and technicians. Every surgical patient is admitted to our hospital and receives a complete physical exam by a veterinarian. All pets undergoing a procedure have a complete blood panel evaluated to ensure that they are safe candidates for anesthesia. Every patient has blood pressure, blood oxygen content, and body temperature measured by a designated veterinary technician throughout the entire surgical event. Surgical patients also receive intravenous fluids throughout the anesthetic event to maintain adequate hydration and blood pressure. This individualized one-on-one care is what we would want for our own pets so it’s what we want for yours too. Surgery for your pet can seem expensive, we totally get it and price shopping to find the best deal is understandable. Just make sure to ask what’s included in the price since like most things in life, you tend to get what you pay for.
Pets need dental care too!! 85% of all cats and dogs over the age of 3 has some degree of dental disease-and this means more than just a little bad breath This can predispose our pets to cardiac, liver and kidney disease. The dental decay and infection is also painful and can adversely affect your pet’s quality of life and limit their longevity. Dental disease is preventable with a few easy home routines and if caught early, some dental changes are reversible. Rosemont Veterinary Hospital provides dental treatments, including oral exams and dental prophylaxis. We have a state of the art dental X-ray machine and modern dental equipment. We perform oral exams as part of your pet’s annual wellness exams at which point we will make recommendations for optimizing your friend’s dental health. Call 818-957-2451 or stop by today to discuss what dental care regimen would be best for your faithful companions.
At Rosemont Veterinary Hospital we offer medicated bathing for your best friends. Whether your Labrador found a nice big mud puddle to swim in or your cat’s coat is matted and dirty, we can help get them back on track. We have medicated bathing products that can help with itchy, flaky skin and restore the shine to your pets coat. All cats and dogs are bathed using the Hydrosurge Bathing System. Not only does this system require less water and shampoo, it also massages the pet as the water penetrates even the thickest haircoats. The bathing system removes more dirt and debris than regular bathing alone, and leaves your pet feeling ready for a walk on the town! All of our bathing is supervised by one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians and we take every care to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your pet during bathing. If your pet is boarding with us, we can bathe them on their final day to ensure they look their best when you are reunited with them.
Did you know that 1 in 3 pets in the United States will go missing in their lifetime? A recent study showed that less than 20% of those missing pets without a microchip are ever reunited with their families. Rosemont Veterinary Hospital offers ResQ microchips for our patients. The chip is smaller than a grain of rice and is implanted between your pet’s shoulder blades, much like a vaccine. ResQ microchips require no registration fees, no annual membership fees, and also provide you with the added peace of mind that you can travel anywhere in the world and know that your pet’s chip can be read by a universal scanner. Call us today at 818-957-2451 to schedule an appointment to microchip your pals and make sure they don’t become another statistic!
We want to make sure our patients are as comfortable as possible. Every surgical patient has their pain level closely monitored before, during, and after procedures and they go home with pain management medications. The veterinary team at Rosemont Veterinary Hospital is trained to identify painful patients and to respond appropriately to alleviate pain quickly and effectively so your pet is feeling better as soon as possible.
Vaccinations are the only way to prepare your pet’s immune system to fight against potentially life-threatening infectious diseases they may encounter. All vaccines that we recommend for your pet are immunizations that we consider critical for their health. Rosemont Veterinary Hospital adheres to the most recent vaccine protocols from the AVMA and AAHA. We recognize that you may have some reservations about vaccinating your pets. We encourage you to schedule an appointment to discuss this with one of our doctors. Rosemont Veterinary Hospital believes in individualized care plans, and we would be happy to help you find the right protocol to keep your furry family members safe today!
Did you know that some internal and external parasites that your dog or cat has can be transmitted to you and your family?! The doctors and staff of Rosemont Veterinary Hospital make parasite prevention a priority. We strive to keep both your pet and the rest of your family healthy and parasite free. We recommend routine deworming for all puppies and kittens, and at least annual exams and parasite checks for all adult patients. Unfortunately, heartworm has arrived in Southern California. There have been many confirmed cases of heartworm infection in our area. We know this may be a disease you have not heard much about and we encourage you to call us to schedule an appointment to discuss your pet’s risk factors. Come in today for your pet’s heartworm test and to begin heartworm preventatives. Fleas, ticks, heartworm, and intestinal parasites are not only unpleasant to think about, they can be detrimental to your pet’s longevity and overall wellbeing. We recommend year-round flea and heartworm prevention for all patients, and annual heartworm examinations. Rosemont Veterinary Hospital adheres to the parasite treatment and prevention recommendations of the CAPC.
It is estimated that approximately 50% of companion animals are overweight and of those, about half are obese. Obesity is a serious condition that can predispose our four legged family members to osteoarthritis, hormonal imbalances, metabolic abnormalities, and more. In fact, obese pets live, on average, 2 years shorter than lean pets. In addition to the medical side effects, obesity damages the relationship you have with your pet, as these pets are often too sluggish to interact and play in the manner they once did. The veterinary team at Rosemont Veterinary Hospital would like to help. We are available for weight and diet consultations, exercise suggestions, healthy snacking advice and more. We would like to develop a customized plan for you and your pet. Call us today at 818-957-2451 and see how you might be able to add years to your pet’s life!
Pets age 5-7 times faster than we do. That means that health problems can pop up 5-7 times quicker than they might in us. As our pets age, they require some changes in medical care, their diets, and exercise routines. Some medical problems that are more common with age include diabetes, thyroid disease, kidney disease, heart disease, diseases of the adrenal glands, chronic vomiting or diarrhea, unexplained weight loss or obesity, arthritis and joint disease, and autoimmune disease. At Rosemont Veterinary Hospital we believe that our distinguished senior pets deserve VIP care!
We believe that a little bit of grey around the muzzle is nothing more than a sign of wisdom and we make it a priority to keep your senior friends happy and healthy for as long as possible. Our senior pets receive a senior care package including a complete physical exam including orthopedic, dental, and weight/nutritional assessments, a complete blood cell count, blood chemistry values, thryoid measurements, and a urinalysis. Blood pressure measurement and an EKG to evaluate cardiac health, and a test for glaucoma are also included for all pets over 7.
