Vaccinations for Your Dog or Cat

Care for Your Senior Pet

As your pet enters their senior years, it's important that they receive the best available care to continue leading a happy and healthy life. Changes to their bodies occur rapidly and they become more susceptible to diseases such as cancer, arthritis, dental disease, diabetes and heart disease.

We recommend a geriatric exam tailored to your pet’s age and condition. The senior wellness program at Hearthstone Animal Clinic includes diagnostic tests designed to catch problems associated with aging before they become difficult and expensive to treat. The program also covers a number of tests such as ear and eye exams, basic neurologic and cardiovascular evaluations, weight/nutritional assessment, blood chemistry tests, urinalysis and more.

Behavior Counseling Services

Even with proper training and lots of attention and love, your dog or cat can develop bad habits or unwanted behaviors. Please don’t make the mistake of believing that you and your family must live with these problems, or worse, consider giving up your pet.

We offer behavior counseling for many of your pet's problems, including:

  • Inappropriate urination or defecation
  • Urine marking
  • Aggression
  • Nipping/biting
  • Separation anxiety
  • Inappropriate chewing
  • Barking
  • Digging
  • Introduction of new pets into the household

If your pet’s behavioral issue is significantly complicated or beyond the hospital team’s area of expertise, we work with board certified animal behaviorist Lore I. Haug of Texas Veterinary Behavior Services. She has been practicing since 1994 and is the leading animal behaviorist in the Houston area.
