A thorough history is included in the physical exam. This involves assessing personality, environment, diet, behavior, and any other aspect of your pet’s life that affects health.
Your pet will have all systems evaluated; including weight, temperature, heart rate, and respiratory rate taken at each visit to determine what is “normal” for your pet. Then the doctor examines eyes, ears, oral cavity, heart, lungs, musculo-skeletal, lymph nodes, abdomen, skin, and neurologic status and we will discuss findings with you. We will also assess pain in each patient.
Because we practice integrated medicine, your pet will receive the benefit of Chinese pulse and tongue diagnosis. Treatment recommendations may include acupuncture, diet change, herbs, or massage based on combined eastern and western diagnosis.

Every animal deserves safe anesthesia and pain control when undergoing surgery. To promote these results, our packages include items like IV catheter, pain injection, IV fluids, and comprehensive anesthetic monitoring. Every patient receives a pre-surgical exam to determine their ability to handle the physical stress of anesthesia and surgery.
Anesthesia is a potent physical stress on the body. Whole Pet requires that all anesthetic patients have an IV catheter and IV fluids for procedures longer than 10 minutes. The IV catheter allows the doctor on-going and immediate ability to administer medications and deliver fluids to maintain safe blood pressure and ensure adequate hydration. Proper blood pressure protects the kidneys from damage.
Whole Pet knows that being away from home can be stressful and the pre-surgical sedative calms your pet so they feel more relaxed. Some sedatives also give pain relief. Anesthesia is maintained with human-grade anesthetic gas.
Pre-surgical blood work and e-collar are usually optional, but may be required by doctor based on breed, age or health status of pet.

This service is for pets with generally good oral health and is a great way to maintain it. Because your dog or cat can't tell us that he or she has a toothache, they must first be anesthetized for proper assessment of their mouth.
Benefits of this service: Full mouth exam and tooth count is performed, followed by assessment of each tooth for pain, cracks and infection. We clean with a state-of-the-art magnetorestrictive scaler. Polishing is also included, which smoothens the tooth surface in an effort to prevent immediate plaque build- up.
The assessment indicates if more advanced dental care is needed. Tooth x-rays are important to know the full extent of disease, so important that they are now included in the general dental package. Most dental disease is found UNDER the gums. Sometimes tooth extraction or root canal therapy are required to return the pet to good oral health (not included in Routine Dental). Please see 'Advanced Dental' (hyperlink) to learn more about these treatments.
Only once the doctor can examine the mouth under anesthesia will we know the extent of treatment required. Before the procedure, Whole Pet medical staff will review a detailed estimate with you so if Advanced Dental(hyperlink) care is needed, you'll have the knowledge up front to make the best medical decisions.
Routine Dental Includes:
Pre-surgical blood work and other tests may be optional depending on age and health status of your pet. Additional expenses may include tooth extractions, and anesthesia.
Sometimes just cleaning, polishing and sealing teeth is not enough to restore them to health. Treatments such as extraction or roots canals may be required.
If these treatments are necessary, care is taken to numb the area and provide injectable and oral pain medication. In addition, the site is surgically closed (instead of being left open) and this often includes grafting tissue. Closure in this way promotes faster healing and prevents food from contaminating the extraction site.
Cost can vary from $20/tooth (single root incisor) to $120 (large multi-root molar or pre-molar). Additional anesthesia time will be needed. You will receive a detailed explanation and estimate by the medical staff before any oral procedure starts. There is no way to fully evaluate the status of your pet's mouth until we anesthetize them and look carefully, so this estimate will give you the knowledge to make the best medical decisions once the procedure begins.
While most procedures are performed by our in-house medical staff, We have a board certified veterinary dentist come to the clinic for exceptional dental procedures like root canals and special cases.
One of the best ways to increase dental care quality and reduce the risk and expense of additional anesthesia is the use of Digital Dental X-Ray imaging.
Whole Pet's imaging system allows the doctor to render an image in less than 4 seconds and be able to make accurate diagnoses and rapid treatment decisions. These images can catch disease early when it's easier to fix, reducing future veterinary dental treatments.
Using digital instead of chemical imaging (aside from the reduced environmental impact) keeps the patient under anesthesia for less time, which reduces expense and risk from side affects from the anesthetic gases.
Oral care at home is a way to minimize veterinary oral cleaning and your pet's need to be anesthetized. Whole Pet medical staff will help you create an at-home dental care plan; it can be as simple as periodically feeding special dental chew treats!
It is best to brush your pet's teeth daily. Our technicians can teach you how to do this. Brushing can be combined with dental treats or antiseptic water additive to prevent plaque. We even have dental chews for cats.
Generally we recommend you pick 2 methods of oral care and try to consistently apply these to maintain oral health.
Pre-surgical blood work and other tests may be optional depending on age and health status of your pet. Tooth extractions, x-rays, and anesthesia longer than ½ hour cost additional.
Safe Vaccinnation Protocols based on “Risk Assessment” WPVC’s vaccine protocols are based on balancing the risk versus benefit of each vaccine for each animal, called “risk assessment”. This means we look at each pet’s lifestyle, age, and health status to determine the best vaccination schedule for that pet. In general all puppies and kittens should receive a full set of the “core” vaccines with boosters at one year of age. We use updated guidelines from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP), as well as following on-going scientific studies to determine protocols.
