Maintaining your pet’s health (“wellness”) is an important aspect of today’s veterinary medicine. With this in mind, Derry Animal Hospital offers the following “wellness” patient services.
We follow the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) guidelines, standards and protocols to better meet the needs of our patients. The staff consistently works with outside specialists to make sure that we are up to date on the latest technology and cutting edge procedures.
We will help you set up a lifelong plan for your family member. Derry Animal Hospital has developed programs for every stage of your pet’s life that will better meet the health needs that your loved one deserves. We follow the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to reduce the risk of zoonotic (diseases transmitted from animals to humans) disease transmission.
Our kitten and puppy visits start off with a physical exam to make sure your new family member is in good health. A thorough examination of your puppy and kitten by your veterinarian within the first couple of weeks of ownership is very important. In addition to evaluating your new pet for any congenital or infectious diseases the veterinarian will discuss common medical problems to be aware of. The veterinarian will review your pet’s previous medical records, if any, and discuss recommendations for diagnostic testing, vaccinations, and parasite prevention. Remember to bring a fresh stool sample to your puppy/kitten visit.
Derry Animal Hospital recommends spaying and neutering puppies and kittens at about 6 months of age. Early spaying and neutering prevents unwanted pregnancies and can greatly reduce or eliminate future health problems, including uterine infections, mammary cancer, prostate disease and testicular cancer.
Our wellness exams are designed to meet the needs of your pet. We will discuss the vaccinations you should consider for your pet based on his/her individual lifestyle. We strongly believe that every pet is an individual and that their needs differ. Derry Animal Hospital does not have a one size fits all mentality when it comes to preventive health care protocols. We strongly recommend yearly exams for your pets to keep them healthy and happy.
Derry Animal Hospital has a special senior wellness program designed to meet the needs of our older patients. We will address our owners concerns about arthritis, dental care, proper diets and the use of blood screening tests for early disease detection. We strongly believe that age is not a disease and that we can meet the needs of every senior pet that we care for.

We offer a complete range of surgical services including routine spays and neuters, cat declaws (done with laser), urgent and emergency surgeries. We offer orthopedic surgical services and have a surgical specialist available.
Surgery is performed under similar aseptic conditions that exist in a human hospital. Modern anesthetic equipment and close patient monitoring ensure the safest and most comfortable anesthesia possible for our patients. Most types of surgery are performed on an outpatient basis. Your pet typically arrives at the hospital between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. on the day of surgery and will be available for pick up usually between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on the same day. If surgery requires hospital care overnight, that will be discussed at the time of admission.
Derry Animal Hospital offers laser surgery for our patients. Laser surgery is a revolutionary technique that minimizes swelling and bleeding during surgery and results in dramatically reduces pain and discomfort post surgery. It is ideal for soft tissue surgery and cat declaws. Cats that are declawed using laser experience significantly reduced pain and swelling over the older, previous method. Laser declaw will soon become the only standard and accepted technique offering a humane and painless alternative to this otherwise painful surgery. In some states it is now the only approved option.
Hopefully, you'll never lose your family member. Because we receive so many reports in our office of lost or stolen dogs and cats, we strongly suggest that you microchip and register your animal with us. A simple procedure is all it takes for your pet to receive this safe form of identification that enhances the chances of retrieving your pet, should he or she ever become lost. We recommend that the AKC microchip be implanted when your pet is being spayed or neutered, but it can be done at the time of your appointment and does not have an annual fee.
Dental care is important to your pet's health. Research has shown that dental disease can not only lead to tooth and gum deterioration, but also to problems in other parts of your pet's body, including the liver, lungs, heart, kidneys, and brain.
Routine home dental maintenance is important to your pets health. Twice weekly brushing cleans the teeth and provides stimulation to the gum tissue. Good nutrition is also important. There are several diets that are recommended for patients who are prone to dental disease.
We have the capability of performing the following dental procedures:
1. Routine care - We perform prophylactic dental procedures, that include cleaning and polishing the teeth and a complete oral exam. Extractions of the irreparable teeth can be performed.
2. Dental radiographs - Sometimes it is necessary to x-ray a tooth to evaluate the status of a broken tooth or a root. We have a digital dental x-ray machine to check teeth of all sizes!
How will I know when my pet needs to have their teeth cleaned?
"Dog breath" or "Cat breath" can be your first indication that something needs to be done. Swelling, Inflammation, bleeding of the gums, or a visible build up of tartar can indicate dental disease. During your pet's regular vaccination visit, we will check their teeth and gums for any plaque build up, or other problems.
Other dental issues:
Baby teeth: Sometimes the baby teeth do not come out when the adult teeth grow in, and this can cause problems with the pets "bite", or how their teeth line up. These teeth may need to be extracted. There are times when the teeth come in at odd angles, and can produce painful sores where teeth are hitting or scraping against the roof of the pet's mouth.
Broken Teeth: Left unattended, these teeth develop rotten roots and create a great deal of pain.
