Our staff at Gentle Care Veterinary Clinic is filled with passionate animal lovers who are here to help you and your pet! They are highly trained and dedicated to making sure that your pets receive the care and compassion every time that they walk in the door!
We offer the following services to keep your pets healthy:
Complete Physical Examinations
It is very important to make sure that your pet has routine complete physical examinations. Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible.
Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s’ weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen!
Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Internal Medicine is a field of study that is specific to an animal’s inner body systems. We look at the function of various areas of your pets’ inside parts through non-invasive means, giving our doctors a clearer picture of your pet’s’ health.
Please contact us today if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, we would be happy to speak with you!
Procedures done on dogs and cats are challenging for a variety of reasons, one being that they often don’t want to be still while doctors and staff are trying to help the animal. They also have a level of stress that comes from being in an unfamiliar environment. Because of this, the use of anesthesia is a beneficial way to give pets the care they need.
The use of anesthesia is safe, and we are expertly trained in administering it and caring for patients that are under. If you have any concerns about anesthesia for your pet, please call us today at (815) 254-4126. We would be happy to speak with you and assuage any fears you may have.

The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings here at Gentle Care Veterinary Clinic, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us at (815) 254-4126 today to learn more and schedule your pet’s’ dental cleaning.

Radiology is a technique and diagnostic tool we use to look inside the body in an entirely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create images of all the body’s organs. In other words, the use of radiology gives us a view of the internal organs in your pet’s’ body that we otherwise could not see. It’s a valuable diagnostic tool that helps veterinarians detect and prevent illnesses.
The images produced by digital radiography are of much better quality than film radiographs and can be manipulated digitally, giving us the best possible radiographic information to help us diagnose your pets.
The use of radiology is safe, and our entire staff is highly trained. It is our goal to provide your pets with the highest level of medical care possible, and this is just one of the many ways we achieve that.

Senior Pet Care
We provide care for your pet through all stages of life. Since pets age faster than we do, it is easy to forget that they can be considered seniors after just seven years. Moreover, as they get older, their health needs change in unique ways that require proper consideration.
We will work with you to develop a health plan that is right for the specific needs of your senior pet. Nutrition, exercise and the prevention of common problems through regular exams are all ways to help your senior pet stay healthy.
As a pet owner, you want to make sure your pet has the highest quality of life as they age. With proper care, they may even get more time to spend with you and your family, so educating pet owners on proper senior pet care is vital.
Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.
But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s’ safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pets’ fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.
This microchip is registered with your pets’ vital information and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.
Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.
Nutrition Counseling and Prescription Diets
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to overfeed a cute dog or cat that knows how to beg. Being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and stay within a healthy weight range.
Pets’ nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pets’ needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for his or her lifestyle. Please contact us if you have any questions. We would love to speak with you.
