Wellness And Preventative Care

Wellness and Preventive Care

The core of our practice lies in ensuring your pets live long, healthy, and happy lives. Our wellness and preventive care services provide the proactive approach your pet needs to maintain their well-being. We believe in establishing a solid foundation of health and addressing potential concerns before they become serious issues. From the first meow or bark to their seasoned years, we are here to offer personalized, compassionate care every step of the way.


Vaccinations are a vital part of your pet’s health plan. They protect against various diseases affecting their health and quality of life. Our vaccination protocol is tailored to your pet’s unique lifestyle and exposure risk. We’ll work with you to understand your pet’s needs and lifestyle, ensuring they receive only the most appropriate and necessary vaccinations.


We love our pets like family, and losing a furry friend can be heart-wrenching. Microchipping provides an added layer of protection to help you reunite with your pet should they ever get lost. This simple, quick, and safe procedure implants a tiny chip about the size of a grain of rice under your pet’s skin. Each chip carries a unique ID number that can be read with a scanner, making it easy to locate you as the owner if your pet is found.

Spay + Neuter

Spaying or neutering your pet can significantly benefit their health and well-being. These procedures can prevent certain types of cancers and unwanted behaviors and help control the pet population. Our team ensures that your pet receives the highest standard of care before, during, and after surgery. We’re here to answer any questions and guide you through the process to make it as stress-free as possible for you and your pet.

Puppy + Kitten Care

There’s nothing quite like the joy of bringing a new puppy or kitten into your home. Those first few months are a critical time for their development and health. Our puppy and kitten care services ensure your new friend gets the best possible start in life. We offer comprehensive wellness exams, vaccinations, parasite control, nutrition advice, and love. We’re here to help guide you through this exciting (and sometimes challenging!) stage of your pet’s life.

Exotic Pets

We know that pets like rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds have unique care needs that are different from cats and dogs. That’s why our team is specially trained to provide the best possible medical care for your exotic companion.

At Valley Oak Veterinary Clinic, we offer:

  • Wellness exams to keep your rabbit, guinea pig, or bird healthy
  • Diagnosis and treatment of illnesses common to these species
  • Nutrition advice tailored to your pet’s dietary requirements  
  • Guidance on proper housing and care for your exotic pet’s needs
  • Surgery and anesthesia administered by vets experienced with smaller pets 
  • Emergency services for urgent exotic pet health issues

We understand that your bird, rabbit, or guinea pig is a beloved family member, and we are dedicated to providing them with the highest quality veterinary medicine. Contact Valley Oak Veterinary Clinic in Scotts Valley today to schedule an appointment or ask any questions about caring for your exotic pet!

Senior Care

As pets age, their healthcare needs evolve. Regular geriatric care is crucial to catching age-related diseases early and maintaining your pet’s quality of life in their golden years. Our senior pet care services are designed for the unique needs of older pets, offering comprehensive physical exams, bloodwork, pain management, and more. We approach aging pet care with empathy, patience, and a deep understanding of senior pet needs. Your pet has brought joy into your life over the years; it’s our privilege to ensure their later years are comfortable and fulfilling.
