New Pet Hospital in Las Vegas
A new pet hospital in Las Vegas is changing the face of veterinary care. Pet Health and Lifetime Care Center on Desert Inn is the brainchild of Las Vegas veterinarian Dr Mark Beerenstrauch, who started his state-of-the-art practice to provide the highest quality care for pets while evolving the current mainstream approach toward pet health care.
Most pet owners only visit a veterinarian when their pet is ill, has an injury, or needs vaccinations. Recognizing that this is not the best path to overall pet health, Dr Beerenstrauch, or “Dr B” as he is known in the local pet community, has created Feline Health and Canine Health Lifetime Veterinary Care Programs designed to follow patients through every stage of life. A puppy or kitten’s needs can be very different from those of an elderly pet. One major factor these programs take into consideration is the breed of the pet. Breed can give a veterinarian great insight into what diseases or conditions that pet may be prone to, which allows them to screen and observe accordingly. For example, Scottish Terriers are more likely than any other breed to develop bladder cancer, while Boxers are more prone to develop cardiac problems. Early detection and treatment of diseases lead to increased life expectancy in pets, making breed-specific preventative wellness an important part of Pet Health Hospital’s Lifetime Care Programs.
You can expect your pet’s first visit with a Pet Health veterinarian to take longer than a routine exam, so a full evaluation of your pet’s current state of health can be assessed. An individualized wellness program will be created using that information and any known history of health problems your pet may have. In addition to considering breed-specific risks, your Pet Health veterinarian will also address any dental, weight management, behavioral, or other risk factors that may affect the health and lifespan of your pet. This appointment is also an opportunity for your vet to begin educating you on how to provide a higher quality of life for your pet.
The philosophy at Pet Health Hospital is to advocate for your pet throughout his or her life. Dr B has spent the entirety of his career building his wellness programs, which he uses to determine the specific times in that pet’s life when veterinary maintenance is necessary to maintain optimal health. Routine and low-cost procedures are performed as needed to avoid larger and more costly complications that may later compromise the pet patient’s life. Routine vaccinations, wellness checks, and health direction play a significant role in helping pets live a longer and healthier life.
