Please let us know what office you would like to bring your pet.
A veterinarian is like your family doctor, dentist, and ophthalmologist rolled into one person. Our Cleveland veterinary hospital concentrates on caring for dogs, cats, and pocket and has equipment similar to what you would see at Southwest Health Care Center or Fairview Hospital only on a slightly smaller scale. While we can take care of most veterinary medical problems, we also work closely with local veterinary specialists.
Allergy – Many pets have allergies which translate into multiple problems. While allergies can be caused by many things, like spring and fall seasonal allergies in Cleveland, OH, even food can your pet is eating may be causing your pet to itch and scratch themselves incessantly.
Behavior – The number one reason pets are given up for adoption is they have a behavior problem. Whether your pet is afraid of thunderstorms or fireworks, barks every time someone goes by the house, or something else, we can help. We will first make sure there is no underlying medical problem. Then we will give you basic behavior advice. For serious problems with dogs, we work with Christy Paxton at Hand in Paw Dog Training. We refer very serious behavior problems (any species) to The Behavior Clinic.
Dentistry – We identify more pet dental problems than any other single one. Click here to learn more about our Veterinary Dental Services

Geriatrics – senior citizens, especially in the last 1/3 of their life. Just because your pet is getting older doesn’t necessarily mean that they have pain that can’t be treated.
Gastroenterology (stomach and intestines) Vomiting and Diarrhea are two problems associated with the stomach and intestines
Nephrology (kidneys) – it may be as simple as a urinary infection or as serious as Kidney failure

Pediatrics (puppies and kittens) – just like children, puppies and kittens are more vulnerable to health problems
Nutrition – many of your pet’s health problems could be solved by feeding your pet the right amount of the right diet. Allergies and Obesity are two problem areas associated with a poor diet.
