Our pets are our family, and we want to protect and enhance their health and happiness throughout every stage of their lives. From spay and neuter procedures and recovery support to excellence in geriatric care, Central Veterinary Hospital is your family’s trusted healthcare advocate for your furry best friend.
Flea and Parasite Control
In California, year-round flea and parasite control is a necessity due to our generally warm climate. Parasite and tick control medicine can prevent infestation and subsequent illness, some of which can be serious and life-threatening. It is important to us to help protect our Fremont pet owners and their families. Our staff at Central Veterinary Hospital can help to stop an infestation and help to prevent future ones.
If your pet is coughing, vomiting, short of breath, has diarrhea, is licking under its tail or losing weight, these symptoms may indicate infestation. Some parasites live in the intestines, therefore it is vital for your pet to be seen as soon as possible to prevent further spreading. Please call us immediately if your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms.
Heartworms can live in the lungs, heart, or blood vessels, and can therefore be deadly if they find their way into your pet’s bloodstream. A monthly prescription can prevent heartworms. Bloodwork and other tests can help us understand the infestation more clearly if your pet has heartworms, as well as how to best treat your pet’s individual case.
If you have recently adopted a new pet, please call us at (510) 797-7387 to schedule their parasite prevention appointment.
Diagnostics and Lab Work
If your pet is suffering from a past injury or is exhibiting symptoms that are hard to describe or diagnose, Central Veterinary Hospital employs a variety of comprehensive veterinary diagnostics to accurately identify the issue and start your pet on the road to recovery.
Our veterinary clinic routinely uses radiographs to detect tumors and bone fractures, examine damage caused by heartworms, and check for a variety of other conditions, such as arthritis and spinal cord disease. Our techniques are both painless and safe, making them accessible to both pregnant females and very young pets without fear of harm. An X-ray can make for a more accurate diagnosis, enabling our veterinarians to offer the most effective care and treatment.
As your pet begins to show signs of aging, Central Veterinary Hospital can offer unique and individualized care to support them in their later years. We offer preventative screening for elderly pets to either identify or rule our common diseases that may arise as your pet ages. Physical exams, serum profiles, and other tests can offer further insight into your aging pet’s health. Geriatric pet care is a pillar of our compassionate care, and can help create a better quality of life for your pet.
