Make Life a Rainbow


Dr. Grote is now focusing on care for geriatric and terminally ill patients. 

Hospice and Pain Management: This involves monitoring and providing medications and care that will help to maintain a pain-free and comfortable life for those elderly extremely ill pets. As pets live longer, they often experience the same aches and pains from arthritis as we do. There are many new medications, techniques and supplements that can make your pet more comfortable. Please ask us. 

Anesthesia and Surgery: Surgery, sedation or anesthesia in a home environment is unrealistic. However, we can refer you to one of the hospitals we recommend for that service. 

Radiology: As with surgery and anesthetic procedures, we will be happy to refer you to a separate hospital.    

Dental Care : Dental health involves periodic prophylactic scaling of the teeth as well as home care. We can discuss this as needed. 

A Compassionate Transition (In Home): Although an uncomfortable subject, compassionate euthanasia can be a necessity to end suffering and pain. We understand the difficulty of dealing with this situation and offer a gentle and pain free approach in the comfort of your pet’s home environment. Click Here For Information.

Weight Control: A significant number of our pets are weight challenged. We can help you understand the benefits of weight loss and will set up a workable plan to help you manage this important problem. 

Nutritional Counseling: Nutrition is an important part of your pet's lifestyle. A low calorie diet along with weight loss can prolong your pet's lifespan by 20%. We can help you understand this subject. 

Second Opinions: Occasionally, it is worthwhile to get a second opinion on a problem that does not seem to be responding. I am happy to discuss what is going on with your pet. However, I will never be critical of another veterinarian’s viewpoint and am only here for support.
