What does a Primary Care (PC) Veterinarian Do?

The focus of a PC veterinarian is on keeping your pet well at all stages of life. We provide comprehensive care to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases in your pets. In addition, we are the best resource for the most accurate information about all aspects of your pets’ care.

  • Healthcare recommendations targeted for all life stages including puppy/kitten, adult, and senior
  • Preventative care, including wellness examinations, vaccination, parasite prevention, and screening for common parasites and diseases through fecal blood and urine testing
  • Examination, diagnostics, and treatment of sick or injured pets
  • Diagnosis and management of chronic disease (diabetes, thyroid, renal, allergies, arthritis ect)
  • Dental health examinations and anesthetic dental procedures such as cleaning and tooth extractions
  • Nutritional and weight management information
  • Behavioral consultation
  • End-of-life care (hospice) and euthanasia

A veterinary PC veterinarian may recommend that you seek care for your pet with another veterinary specialty team. We are making this recommendation because we want the best care possible for your pet. Examples that are frequently referred are for outpatient surgery (spay/neuter, mass removal, orthopedic), to a veterinary specialist (cardiologist, internal medicine, dermatology, orthopedics, and oncology), to an Urgent Care veterinary facility, or a dedicated emergency veterinary hospital.
