Cost-Effective Veterinary Services for Dogs

Your dog’s health and well-being are important to the doctors and staff of Pet Care Veterinary Hospital. Our goal is to catch problems early, which will give your companion the best chance at a more robust and longer life span, while at the same time giving you peace of mind when it comes to their health. We believe in developing a client-doctor partnership in order to provide your canine companion with the best medical care and advice available.

We offer many educational materials here on our website, because our goal is to maximize our client’s awareness of important canine health issues. Our veterinarians have written many easy-to-read articles for our Dog Library.

The Behavior Corner

Appropriate behavior largely depends on whose behavior you are referring to. To a dog, digging, chewing, excessively barking, chasing cars and jumping on people is normal. To a cat, clawing furniture, inappropriate bathroom behavior, and and play aggression may be normal. To you, it is a nuisance. Each year, many dogs are given to shelters due to the fact that they exhibit behavior problems. Pet Care Veterinary Hospital stresses early training of dogs as it is easier to have the dog understand, from an young age, what to do and not do, rather than to try and fix a behavioral problem later.

Dr. Jill D. Partlow is Pet Care’s resident behavioralist. Her insightful advice and compassionate approach to both canine and feline behavior issues will be an invaluable resource. If you are a pet owner that is experiencing difficulty when it comes to the behavior of your dog or cat, rest assured that you are not the only individual experiencing this. However, you can successfully overcome it with a little time and dedication to the endeavor at hand. Dr. Partlow will help you see that it is never “too late” to start communicating with your dog or cat!
