For Dr. Leslie Steele, co-owner of the Advanced Animal Care practice, pro-preventative wellness care such as physical exams, vaccinations and blood work are the keys to early detection of health issues because they unlock more options for treatment if needed.
These procedures also apply for indoor cats, who need regular check-ups as much as dogs do, in case they are experiencing issues such as upper respiratory viruses, thyroid disease or heart conditions. Older cats should definitely come in to have blood work taken for senior conditions like kidney disease or diabetes.
In addition to running her clinic, Dr. Steele realized that she could also assist animals that don’t have owners and that are in distress. Therefore, she founded East Cooper Pet Release, a non-profit that rescues animals that have been neglected or abused. They are then rehabilitated and rehomed through a process called TNR or Trap Neuter Release.
With her two ever-expanding businesses, Dr. Steele is also always looking to grow her team by hiring staff members as front desk attendants, assistants or technicians. So, whether you want to keep your pets feeling their best, are looking for a career working I with the wonderful world of animals or are passionate about contributing to rescues, reach out to Advanced Animal Care today.
