WELLNESS CHECKS AND IMMUNIZATIONS
A Healthy Pet is a Happy Pet. East West encourages annual wellness exams for the early detection and prevention of health issues with your pet. Annual examinations are thorough and include routine blood-work to detect problems early. Essential immunizations are administered at the time of the exam to insure your pet’s health safety and in compliance with state and local regulations. Annual, or if needed, Semi Annual wellness checks are individualized for your pet based on age, breed, weight, lifestyle and genetic predisposition to disease. Screening for heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and kidney disease are just a few issues that can be identified and treated early with regular check-ups.

We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery. The procedure is safe and quick. The chip is small, about the size and shape of a grain of rice, and is easily inserted under your pet’s skin. Once the microchip is in place, the owner must register the microchip with the national data base. When a pet is scanned with a microchip scanner an identification number will appear. This number is linked to a national data base that has all of the owner’s contact information. East-West includes updating your microchip information as a part of your pets annual wellness exam.

ACUPUNCTURE AND HERBAL MEDICINE
Dr. Register specializes in Acupuncture and herbal medicines and is a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist. The American Veterinary Medical Association considers veterinary acupuncture a valid treatment option within the practice of veterinary medicine and surgery. Acupuncture can be useful for treating functional problems that involve pain, non-infectious inflammation (such as arthritis and allergies) and neurological dysfunctions (such as paralysis) as well as a variety of other conditions and disorders. Acupuncture is the insertion of small, sterile, stainless steel needles into a patient at precise locations and depths on the body. Acupuncture has been utilized in veterinary practice for thousands of years and can be utilized in addition to standard medical/surgical treatments of disease, or as a preventative measure. Dr. Register is also available to recommend herbal medicine alternatives to you for your pet.
