We provide the highest quality pet care
HCAW is a full-service animal hospital and wellness center. We provide a full range of diagnostic services and vaccinations.
Our hospitals consists of various important sections designed for pet safety, health and comfort - each one open and airy, with easy access to each other, reception, grooming, boarding, X-ray room, treatment and surgery room.
We give emphasis to preventative care whenever possible to ensure a happy healthy and long life for your pet. We offer physical examination, vaccinations, de-worming, dentistry and nutritional counseling services.
Vaccines are an essential part of your pet's protection against severe infectious diseases. Some diseases are common and fatal to your puppy, making those vaccines urgent for all dogs (e.g., Parvo).
We provide the following vaccinations to your dog:
1. Rabies vaccination
2. Vanguard vaccination
Vaccines are an essential part of your pet’s protection against serious infectious diseases. Some diseases are common or easily spread, making vaccines imperative for all cats (e.g.: distemper, leukemia). Other diseases require direct contact so cats that may go outdoors need these vaccines.
We provide the following vaccinations to your cat:
1. Rabies vaccination
2. Felocel vaccination
1. Rabies: Rabies is mainly transmitted through the bite wounds of infected mammals. Although rare in rodents such as mice and voles, there can be large populations of infected bats and skunks and other animals depending on the geographic location. Although cats are relatively resistant to rabies, they can be potential source of infection for humans and there is no treatment available.
• Highly recommended in all cats and dogs.
• Required by law in some countries
Spay and Neuter: Each year, millions of dogs and cats are put to death in animal shelters. Spaying and neutering eases the overpopulation problem and prolongs the life of your dog or cat.
Spay/Neuter for your Female Dog or Cat
The spaying of a female pet is the surgical removal of the uterus and the ovaries. Unlike the discomfort uterine surgery produces in humans, pets seem to experience much less pain after spaying.
Why should you spay your pet?
There are many health benefits spaying provide .while un-spayed ones may suffer of problems that can develop include:
o Mammary cancer
o Ovarian tumors
o Vaginal infections
o Uterine infections
o Ovarian cysts
o Endocrine diseases
o Uterine abscesses
o Bone marrow suppression
o Behavior problems
o Uterine cancer
o Vaginal polyps
o Increase escapes & injuries
In addition to the risk of unwanted puppies or kittens.
By spaying before the first heat, you will reduce the chance of mammary (breast) cancer in your pet by as much as 97% over their lifetime. Even after the first heat, spaying will be beneficial, so whatever your pet's age, it is important to spay to prevent unplanned litters and health problems.
Neutering (Castrating) your Dog or Cat
Neutering (castration) is the surgical removal of the testicles. Unlike the pain testicular surgery produces in humans, pets seem to experience little or no pain after neutering.
Why should you castrate your pet?
There are many health benefits castration provide .while un-castrated ones may suffer of health/behavior problems that can develop include:
o Prostate enlargement
o Shortened life span
o Increased escapes & injuries
o Prostate tumors
o Testicle tumors
o More fight wounds
o Prostate infections
o Endocrine diseases
o Anal tumors
o Stud tail infections
What is the procedure the day of surgery?
Our vets at HCAW will advise you the night before the surgery to withhold food after about 7:00 pm and water after 9:00 pm.
Your pet is to be brought to the Center in the morning before 9:00 am. Routine tests are being done to make sure your pet has no health disorders that could complicate the surgery. Your pet is put under anesthesia and the surgery is performed by the surgical staff. Your pet is given medication to reduce any pain right after surgery and allowed to recover in a quiet recovery room. Most patients will go home the same day.
What is the procedure after the surgery?
You are advised not to feed or give water to the pet after the surgery to avoid unnecessary vomit. Activity should be restricted for the week after the surgery. Walks on leash are fine, but running and jumping should be avoided. Some pets will lick at the incision; this must be discouraged as licking can infect or open the incision. An Elizabethan collar may be used to prevent licking.
