Dr. Breite performs many types of surgical procedures on dogs and cats; most commonly castration (neuter), ovariohysterectomy (spay), lump removal and wound/laceration repair. He is also adept at performing many non-elective abdominal surgeries and some thoracic (chest) surgeries. Should your pet require basic fracture repair, Dr. Breite is comfortable performing those surgical corrections as well. If, however, Dr. Breite determines that the care and well being of your pet requires the expertise of a specialist, he will not hesitate to refer you to a board certified surgeon.
If you have detected a lump on your pet, call to schedule an appointment.
Following this part of the exam, Dr. Breite moves on to evaluate all other parts of the visual system (lids, lenses, etc.) to determine the state of your pet's ocular health and recommend any needed tests or treatment for this finely tuned system.
In all cases, Dr. Breite will start by examining your pet's mouth and then he will discuss the need for a dental procedure, and the best timing to do so. Lastly, should any oral masses be found, we will arrange to obtain a biopsy so that treatment and prognosis can be discussed and arranged.
General Health Care and Preventive Medicine
Vaccination is an important part of your pet's wellness care and are routinely administered to prevent serious, sometimes fatal diseases. Some of these include: Rabies, Distemper, Parvovirus and Lyme Disease in dogs and Rabies, Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia and Feline Leukemia in cats. Nevertheless, Dr. Breite subscribes to the movement in veterinary medicine toward minimizing vaccines as much as possible and will only administer those which are necessary and recommended on an individual basis. He will discuss your pet's risk and determine the best vaccination schedule for you and your pet. Should their needs and or exposure change, their vaccine schedules will change accordingly.
Finally, regarding parasites - including fleas, ticks, intestinal worms and heartworms - our staff will discuss which products are available for both the prevention and treatment of your pet. There are many choices available in this field and we will go over them in depth so that you can make an educated decision on what is best for you and your pet.
