Wellness & Preventive Care

Annual wellness examinations assess your dog’s well-being, identify problems before they become severe, and ensure that they enjoy a happy and healthy life.


We’re a great believer in annual physical exams. They are usually done in conjunction with provision of appropriate vaccinations.
Perhaps surprisingly, Dr. Snyder and the entire ‘Small Creatures’ staff believe that, if done properly, the patients’ history, exam and ‘plan’ between owner and staff become even more important than the vaccines themselves!

We observe your dog through all stages of his/her life. We want to prevent and diagnose problems before they occur. We provide individualized and preventive treatment with routine health exams. As pet owners ourselves, we know how important your dog is to you.

All appointments at Small Creatures, including the annual wellness exam, are booked for 30 minutes, and may extend beyond. We ALWAYS do a FULL physical exam on the pet. We then discuss significant findings, and come up with ‘the plan’. All of us at ‘Small Creatures’ firmly believe that the best results/outcomes are achieved when both client and staff agree on ‘the plan’ and then work together to provide such. Clients seem to really appreciate this ‘inclusive’ approach.

Parasite Control

We understand the importance of protecting your pets from unwanted parasites, which is why we’re proud to offer a comprehensive range of medications. Our selection includes (but not limited to):


Some common canine internal parasites include hookworms, tapeworms and roundworms. Common external parasites are fleas and ticks. To live a healthy life, your pet should be free from both internal and external parasites. The options of parasiticide medications available through your veterinarian today offer a clean slate of safety, effectiveness and ease of delivery.

Microchipping and Tattoos


Microchips and tattoos are a dependable method of reuniting pets with their owners, and ensuring pet safety. They are risk-free, simple, low cost and provide owners with invaluable peace of mind.

33% of all pets become lost at least once in their lifetime.

Spay & Neuter

Spaying and neutering dogs can extend their life term, mitigate behaviour issues, and reduce the number of unwanted dogs on the streets.


These surgeries are a routinely accepted practice in North America. Further discussion is probably best held with an attending staff member, one on one.



Small Creatures provides routine dental cleaning services, under the direct veterinary supervision of Dr. Snyder. The routine cleaning procedure parallels that in humans, with the obvious exception that pets require a general anesthetic. The ‘routine prophy’ (scale, polish and fluoride), usually takes about 30 – 45 minutes.


Vaccines are an essential part of protecting animals from fatal, contagious disease.

Diseases that dogs can be vaccinated for include:

If we don’t immediately know the answer to a client’s questions, we are all committed to ‘following up’. At Small Creatures Pet Clinic, there’s no such answer as ‘I don’t know’.

For Your Information

A Note on Sedation

Veterinary sedation is a valuable method for easing anxiety in pets during stressful veterinary visits and medical procedures. It ensures a calmer, ‘fear-free’ experience for both pets and their owners. At Small Creatures Pet Clinic, we emphasize minimal stress for optimal treatment outcomes. Sedation is always carefully overseen by a veterinarian. This approach helps anxious or aggressive pets arrive relaxed, benefiting both the animal and their owner. We understand the emotional strain veterinary clinic visits can place on you and your pet. Our team is committed to supporting you through challenging situations, working together to manage your pet’s fear and ensure a positive experience. We’re good at it!

Most of these meds can also be used for pet phobias such as: travel, wind, firecrackers, thunder, lightning, intruders (including people and animals).

Pre-euthanasia sedation may also aid in creation of a ‘fear-free’ environment. (See notes on humane euthanasia and cremation).
