At the Animal Hospital of Palo Alto, we believe in trying to prevent a medical condition before it becomes a problem. Preventive medicine can save your companion from sickness, unwanted behavior, surgery and euthanasia. We offer education and services for all stages of your pet's life. Whether it is vaccinations, behavior, or medical issues, our goal is to offer education and preventive diagnostics to help your pet live a long and happy life.
Here at AHOPA we provide full diagnostic and treatment services for your pet including diagnosis and treatment of diabetes, glaucoma, thyroid disease, kidney disorders, liver disease, splenic tumors, urinary tract infection, eye problems, dermatological conditions and allergies, just to name a few. Our doctors regularly attend continuing education conferences and make sure they are up to date on all the most current recommendations and treatment options for your pet.
Vaccines create antibodies which protect your pet from disease. Up-to-date vaccinations play a large part in keeping your pet healthy and free from disease. However, not every pet requires the same series or frequency of vaccines. Our veterinarians tailor a vaccine protocol that is specific to your pet based on his or her lifestyle and immune status. Blood tests are also available to check your pets “titer” or blood antibody level, in cases where owners would like to further customize their pets vaccine protocol. These tests can be discussed more in-depth with the doctor at the time of your pets exam.
