In other words, the use of radiology gives us a view of the internal organs in your pets’ body that we otherwise could not see. It is a valuable diagnostic tool that helps veterinarians detect and prevent illness.

Allergy Testing  Firestone, CO

Allergy Testing

Dogs and cats can be allergic to almost anything, similar to allergies in people. Pets can be allergic to allergens in their household environment, outside environment, or even their food. Symptoms can range from itchiness and ear or eye infections to constant licking, and even vomiting or diarrhea. Many pets suffer from allergies which can directly affect their quality of life, as well as their owner’s.

Geriatric Care  Firestone, CO

Geriatric Care

Preventative medicine is important when our pets are young, but as our pets age, and become prone to certain disease processes, annual exams and blood work becomes even more critical.

Annual exams and blood work to check liver and kidney values, along with thyroid function have the potential to alert us to early changes that may give us valuable information about your pet’s health. We understand the changes your pet will have as they become older, and we also know the importance of keeping your pet healthy as they enter their golden years.

Please call us today at (303) 652-5222 to learn more about caring for your senior pet.

Health Certificates  Firestone, CO

Health Certificates

If you want to travel internationally with your pet, you need to plan ahead. Since each country is different, you will have to contact the embassy or consulate where you are going to find out what you need to do.

Though every country has different requirements, most require a health certificate that is done by a USDA-accredited veterinarian. Luckily, we have a USDA-accredited veterinarian. If you are not a client, you need to make sure you bring your pets’ records in with you to the examination.

At the time of your pets’ examination, we will go over the forms that you need. There are times when we will have to run some tests to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for travel. We may also have to treat your pet prior to traveling.

You will always need a health certificate and proof of vaccination. You may also need a microchip and blood tests. Many countries require that your pet get treated for parasites prior to travel. You may also need certificates for the airplane ride.

Since each country is different and we can’t stay up to date will all of the changes in each one, it is important that you call ahead and know what you need. Then, we will make sure that your pet is all ready to go!

Parasite Prevention  Firestone, CO

Parasite Prevention

The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.

At Pawz Veterinary Clinic, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. Pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.

Pain Management

Unfortunately, our pets can’t tell us when they’re in pain. While veterinarians are trained to detect pain and illness, the first person to recognize if your pet is hurting will be you. Often dogs and cats instinctively mask injury and illness as a protective mechanism, so it can be challenging to detect when they’re in pain. It is important to recognize when your pet is in pain and quickly seek treatment to help alleviate your pet’s suffering. Even subtle changes in your pet’s behavior can be an indication that your furry friend is experiencing pain.

Pain-Management-SteroidsGeneral signs of pain can include a change in normal behavior, such as decreased appetite, lethargy (or decrease in activity), decreased desire to be touched or pet, and for cats, decreased grooming. Abnormal behavior such as vocalization, altered posture, aggression or decreased interaction with other pets or family members in the household, hiding, or inappropriate urination/defecation can also be indications of pain.

Sometimes these symptoms can be easily overlooked, particularly in cats. For example, arthritis in an older kitty may be attributed to “old age” rather than pain or a cat that urinates inappropriately may have a painful lower urinary tract disease rather than a behavior issue.

There are steps you can take to prevent painful conditions and unnecessary problems in your pet’s future. Providing regular dental care reduces the incidence of mouth pain, and preventing obesity reduces the risk and severity of arthritic pain. Treating your pet’s pain will depend on the source and severity. Pain management may include lifestyle changes, pain medications, holistic treatments such as acupuncture and laser therapy, or nutritional supplements.

Good nutrition and exercise along with regular wellness checks with your Pawz Veterinarian will help prevent and manage your pet’s pain and ensure they enjoy a long, healthy life.

Preventative Care

We believe the best way to promote overall health is through preventative care. Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pets’ health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems.

We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often health problems that go undetected can become more severe issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.

Shock Wave Therapy

Shock wave therapy is a safe sedation-free treatment using high-energy sound waves to promote healing. A shock wave, by definition, is a very strong pressure or sound wave in things mediums such as air, water, or a solid, that create sudden, huge changes in pressure. The energy produced by the shock wave system is transferred into the tissue of the body. Since tissue is primarily made up of water, the shock wave passes through, allowing the energy to reach the targeted treatment area and the maximum amount of energy is released at the targeted treatment site. The cells in the targeted area are exposed to significant pressure and stress. These cells react to this sudden change in their environment by releasing distress signals, which triggers specific healing and regenerative responses.

The PulseVet shock wave system can treat a broad range of musculoskeletal and soft tissue injuries and diseases in canine and feline patients such as broken bones, tendonitis, torn ligaments, arthritis, chronic pain and wounds.

This therapy can be used with any other treatment options and can potentially have the ability to reduce daily pain medication usage in patients with chronic pain.

Please contact us for further questions and to see if Shock wave therapy is right for your dog or cat.

It can be used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, tendon and ligament injuries, back pain, lick granulomas, and much more.

Vaccinations  Firestone, CO


At Pawz Veterinary Clinic in Firestone, CO , we believe that one of the most important aspects of caring for your pet’s health is vaccinating him or her against possible diseases.

Wellness Exams  Firestone, CO

Wellness Exams

Thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, our pets are living longer, healthier lives. However, with this longer lifespan comes the increased risk for conditions that can affect our older pets. A few of the ailments that can be problematic to our older friends can include arthritic issues; kidney, heart, and liver disease; cancer; thyroid imbalances; diabetes; among others.

The life span of your pet will typically depend on their breed. Generally, smaller breeds live longer than larger breeds, and cats live longer than dogs. Remember that giant breeds can be classified as seniors as young as the age of five, but smaller breeds may be considered senior at the age 10-13 years. Every year for your dog or cat is equivalent to 5-7 human years. Your Pawz veterinarian is the best source for more information to determine what life stage your pet is in.

As our pets get older, owners may notice them “slowing down.” This can include the apparent gradual loss of hearing or sight, cognitive or memory issues, slower getting up, and difficulties going up and down stairs. Other possible signs that your furry friend may be having some health issues include, weight gain or loss, inappropriate urination/defecation, sudden weight loss or gain, increase or decrease in appetite, hair loss, lameness or weakness just to name a few.

Regular veterinary examinations are one of the most important steps to detect problems early and potentially delay the onset or progression of diseases. We recommend that healthy senior dogs and cats should be seen by their Pawz veterinarian every 6 months to a year. A senior health exam will include a thorough physical exam, possible blood work, and a series of questions for you as the owner to answer about your pets changes in activity or behavior. It is vital for pet owners to work closely with their Pawz veterinarian to create the best plan for the health of their senior pet as they age.
