Chinese Herbal Medicine
Did you know that according to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease? Don’t let your pets become part of this statistic!
Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team and we’ll be happy to help.
There have been many advancements in digital x-ray technology, and we can now manipulate the digital images that we take. This allows us to diagnose issues that may not be seen on a traditional x-ray.
Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Ultrasonography is a non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases. Ultrasounds also allow us to look at the architecture of internal organs and examine location, size, shape, texture and blood supply.
Hospice & End of Life Care
Dr. Malone has personally and professionally experienced the traumatic effects of having to walk back through a busy reception area after receiving bad news or making a difficult decision. To avoid this situation, The Highland Vet has a comfort room with a separate exit that can be used for this as well as regular appointments.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy helps with post-operative pain, speeds up wound healing, and complements acupuncture by speeding up the progress of results and helping relax the muscles prior to needle placement. It is also a great option for those pet owners who would prefer alternative therapy but whose furry friends who would prefer not to be needled.
We recommend bi-annual wellness exams to keep our patients feeling their best! Since dogs and cats age at a much faster pace than we do, this allows us to keep a close eye on any on-going or new conditions that may develop over time. During a wellness exam, we will discuss your pet’s medical history and all current concerns. Dr. Malone and her team will conduct a full-body, head-to-tail exam to get to know your pet and their needs. We will be able to answer all of your questions, address your concerns, and create a wellness plan tailored specifically to your dog or cat.
Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper vaccinations. Let our knowledgeable team guide you through setting up a vaccination schedule for your dog or cat to keep him or her protected. We can also provide vaccine titers for certain vaccines if you are interested.
Parasites, and the diseases they carry, can usually be prevented with proper medication and maintenance. Most importantly, heartworms are a dangerous parasite that lives in the heart & lungs of dogs and cats, damaging the heart and lungs and can be fatal. Unfortunately, Mississippi has the highest rate of heartworm disease in the United States so this makes it even more important to have your loved ones on prevention. Fleas and ticks are not only a source of irritation to your pet, but they can also harbor disease and adversely affect your pet’s health.
