Get the Expertise and Compassion Your Pet Deserves at LazyPaw Animal Hospital

By Elizabeth R. Elstien

From nose to tail and puppies to geriatrics, LazyPaw Animal Hospital treats your pets with a lifetime of good health in mind. Veterinarians and staff get to know each family to "create treatments that reflect our clients' expectations and their pets' needs," Veterinarian Brent Bilhartz explains.

It's these relationships that are a crucial factor in your pet's health as a valued family member. Bilhartz knows that "a high-performing general practitioner is important." Therefore, he continues, "We consider the relationship with people to be the most important ingredient in delivering high-quality medicine. We know our clients and tailor our treatment plans to fit each family and their needs, as we understand that not every dog or cat fits in the same box."

Wellness is important to keep your pet happy and active and assure purring or tail wagging for years to come. "A lot of our patients are here for prevention of disease," Bilhartz says, "and we consider wellness appointments a great way to catch problems before they become untreatable."

A full-service veterinary hospital, much of the basic medical and surgical problems can be handled onsite at LazyPaw. The clinic provides diagnostics with state-of-the art equipment ensuring early detection of health issues, as well as offering in-house laboratory testing. Vaccinations, bloodwork, screenings, dental cleanings and spays/neuters are all offered here. Aside from routine care, more complex issues are also addressed, such as injuries, cancer, dermatology, endocrinology and surgeries.

Listening is a key factor in their treatment. Bilhartz tells us, "We listen to our clients concerns and solve the problem without the upsell that has become more common in the veterinary marketplace." They use the longest-acting vaccines whenever possible and work hard not to over vaccinate. This saves you time and money, as you get the proper treatment needed for your pet right away.

LazyPaw has three established veterinarians: Dr. Bilhartz, his wife Dr. Julaine Hunter and Dr. Aimee Lentz. Each veterinarian has different specialties that together provide a complete service for your dog or cat. View Dr. Hunter's how-to videos, read and learn from their blog or request a vaccination certificate- all done online.

What are a few simple things any pet owner can do at home to improve the quality of life for their dog or cat? Bilhartz notes two ways you can help your pet stay active and healthy: "Feeding a high-quality diet and exercising regularly." Of course, don't forget to bring your pet in for a wellness check once a year.
