All our exam rooms are outfitted with pheromone diffusers (Adaptil for dogs and Feliway for cats) - these diffuse pleasant pheromones that your pets can detect. These neuro-hormones help relieve stress and create a calming atmosphere for your pets. When you enter our office you will be greeted by relaxing classical music which studies have shown decreases stress and anxiety in both humans as well as dogs and cats.
Dr Merlo has years of experience treating both dogs and cats and has recently begun expanding her knowledge to include smaller pocket pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters. In addition, our office is integrative and we go beyond traditional medicine by incorporating all natural supplements, herbal remedies and nutrition counseling to be able to treat your pet as a whole.
If your pet is extremely frightened or anxious at the veterinary office please let us know - often times we can accomodate physical exams in our front yard, parking lot or consider doing a house call appointment. We want to make sure that your pet never fears a veterinarian and will work with you to make sure they consider us to be a friend.
