Preventative Care From Parasite Control to Vaccinations

Exams & Preventative Care:

During preventative care exams, Dr. Seeske Versluys, focuses on your pet’s wellness and conducts a health evaluation. These appointments ordinarily include a thorough history review including information about a pet’s breed, age, behavior, and diet, following a comprehensive physical exam, and then finally conclude by measuring some basic parameters like weight, temperature, pulse, and respiration rates.

Assuming that your pet gets a clean bill of health, the rest of the wellness visit with Dr. Seeske Versluys deals almost exclusively with preventative care, which can be divided into several categories:

  1. Diagnostics (e.g. Heartworm testing, FELV/FIV testing, fecal examinations, etc.
  2. Parasite control (Heartworms, external parasites, and intestinal parasites)
  3. Vaccinations
  4. Identification (e.g. Microchips)
  5. Reproductive counseling (e.g. spay, neuter)
  6. A plan for follow-up and the next routinely scheduled visit.
exotic pet care

Exotic Pet Care:

Dr. Seeske Versluys excels in providing for the unique needs of exotic patients.

Please call ahead for an appointment for these special pets so we can make appropriate preparations.

Geriatric Care:

As your pets age, the more special medical attention they will require.  On the same note, your pets do not all have the same time frame that qualifies them to be in their geriatric years. Geriatric care is designed to provide health care and preventative medicine in the older years of a pet's life and is also aimed at preventing disabilities.

Professional Heartworm Prevention and Treatment in Hawaii

Heartworm Prevention:

Heartworm disease is difficult to treat in your pets and can be deadly. Heartworm finds its way into our dogs and cats through a mosquito bite. Once the infectious larval stage enters the bite wound, the disease moves throughout the dog or (cat's) system and will end up in the heart where they can grow up to 4 inches long.

Living in Hawaii, we cannot entirely escape the chances of our pets being exposed to mosquito, to put it mildly. It is essential to give your dog professional heartworm prevention medication instead of having to deal with heartworm treatments as these can have serious side effects. Trust in Dr. Seeske to determine the best heartworm preventives for your pets from oral pills, topical drops, or injectables. You have options.

In-house Pharmacy:

Our in-house pharmacy services are provided for your convenience. Take your pet for their medical appointment and treatment and purchase all your medication prescriptions at once place.

Register Your Pet With a Microchip For Missing Pet Recovery



All pet cats and dogs should be microchipped. Microchips are little devices that will be safely inserted into your pet and acts as a permanent ID for that pet. The procedure is safe and will not bring any more pain than a vaccination shot. It is important to note that microchips do not provide pet owners with location tracking capabilities; however, it does provide pet recovery centers with the pet's vital information and identification.

nutritional counseling

Nutritional Counseling:

We are what we eat! And the same goes for our pets. Nutrition is the best preventative treatment we can give our pets. With all the different cat and dog food on our store shelves, do you know what foods will provide the best diet for your pet? With over 30 years experience, Dr. Seeske Versluys can counsel you on a proper diet for your pet that will help give them a long, playful and healthy life. 

pain management

Pain Management:

For the most part, we know that animals feel pain and that they must be treated for the such. Strangely enough, it has been mythicized for a long time that dogs do not feel pain the way that humans. Recent studies have shown that dogs and cats do feel pain the same way humans do. Signs of suffering from pain will be evident in their behavior, most of which includes a more reserved, unwilling to move, and antisocial tendencies. We do not quickly dismiss the pain and will do our best to help alleviate the pain your pets are suffering from.

preventative blood work

Preventative Blood Work:

Performing preventative routine blood work can help reveal any underlying medical issues that your pet may have. This blood work may provide valuable insights into your pet's health and will give you the opportunity to nip potential health problems early in the bud.

Advantages of Getting Your Pet Spayed or Neutered

Spaying & Neutering:

There are many advantages of getting your pet spayed or neutered, including improving their health, minimizing their rowdy behavior, and preventing unwanted reproduction. Spaying is a surgical procedure done on female cats and dogs that involves removing of the pet's uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. Neutering, or castration, involves removing the testicles.


We offer the most advanced surgical techniques. Surgical services include a fully trained veterinarian, electric cauterizer, and a heated surgery table for greater comfort. Dr. Seeske Versluy's extensive experience can leave you feeling assured that your pet's health is in capable hands.
