Preventative care – preventing disease and preventing small problems from becoming big problems through well-pet physicals, vaccination, nutrition, training and parasite control

The Annual Physical-or why do I have to schlep my dog and cat to the vet every year? Every pet needs a thorough annual physical because they cannot tell us about little problems we may not notice until they become serious. Dr Mollie very commonly finds dental disease, skin lumps, sore joints, heart murmurs and other things that a pet’s caregivers have not noted. Senior pets or those from breeds at risk of certain diseases may benefit from routine laboratory evaluation, as well. If it is hard to get the pet to the clinic, consider a house call where the clinic comes to you

If you think your pet is sick or in pain, arrange for the pet to be seen right away. Call Dr Mollie at 0542662406.

When your pet is sick or in pain, you need a veterinarian with experience to thoroughly examine the pet, listen to a complete medical history, choose efficiently and collect laboratory samples when needed, diagnose and treat based on current medical knowledge. Dr Mollie has 25 years of clinical experience but never stops learning. Together we will create a diagnostic and treatment plan that gives your pet the healing it needs while being sensitive to your budget.

Sick pets may be treated as outpatients, even in your own home, or hospitalized or referred as needed. Surgery, if required, is always performed with sterile instruments, pain control, and with enough highly trained staff to assure a safe and successful experience for your pet.

Dr.Mollie will follow through to make sure your pet is feeling better. If you have any questions about medications or whether everything is ok, get in touch with Dr.Mollie by calling or sending a text to 0542662406, or sending an email to info@drmollie.co.il.

When the physical exam does not give enough information to make a diagnosis, Dr Mollie will request to do some tests. For example, skin diseases often require a skin scraping or fungal culture for proper diagnosis. Ear infections may need a microscopic analysis of the discharge and urinary troubles a sample for microscopic exam and a culture. Blood analysis can be helpful to identify which body systems are ill when the symptoms are nonspecific. Some tests can be performed on the spot; some samples go to an outside laboratory and may take a day or more for results. X-rays and ultrasounds are arranged within Jerusalem, while advanced imaging like CT is referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Bet Dagan. Certain complex eye or neurological problems may be referred to specialists for proper diagnosis, as well.

You can call Dr.Mollie( 054-266-2406 ) from 8 AM to 10 PM Sunday through Thursday and Friday until Shabbat and arrange a house call for urgent matters. On Shabbat and late at night true emergencies can be taken to the Jerusalem SPCA in Talpiot ( 02-678-0222 / 054-770-0233 ) or to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Bet Dagan ( 03-968-8573 / 03-968-8533 )

When a beloved pet is nearing the end of its life, it is a tough time for the pet and the owners. You need a veterinarian with extra compassion for pets and people. Dr.Mollie will help you choose a program of treatment or support that is right for you and your pet together. This could involve pain control, fluid treatments at home, appetite stimulants or other supportive care. Dr.Mollie can help you decide whether and when to perform euthanasia.

When and if to euthanize can be a sensitive topic. It can be ok for a pet to die at home. Dr.Mollie can help you decide whether to keep treating or if the time has come to stop. Sometimes, the pet is suffering and the only fair thing to do is actively relieve the suffering through humane euthanasia. DrMollie can come to your home to arrange a quiet, stress-free ending if desired, and can help arrange aftercare.

Sometimes a pet is healthy but its behavior is a serious problem. A cat that urinates on the furniture or a dog that bites or destroys doors can be hard to live with. Dr Mollie can examine the pet to be sure no medical problem is involved, and can diagnose and treat behavioral problems as well. Very often behavior problems can be solved with correct diagnosis and treatment, including medications and training.

Can you imagine if you never brushed your teeth for five years what your breath would be like? Now you know why that dog’s mouth smells so bad! Pets can’t take care of their own teeth, so we must do it for them to prevent infection, smell, pain, and even sickness in other parts of the body from rotting teeth. If you have a puppy or kitten, train them to accept daily toothbrushing with a special paste made for pets. Dr Mollie can show you how, or watch videos on the internet . Concentrate on the back teeth hidden under the lips. Your pet will still need professional care once in a while, but much less often. Feeding crunchy food and chew treats can help teeth clean, too, but do not replace brushing. Mild tartar may even disappear if the pet eats one of the prescription dental diets exclusively. If you are like most of us, brushing as a pup or kitten just didn’t happen and now your pet has plaque, tartar, maybe mild gingivitis, and smelly breath. Bad teeth will not fix themselves! The situation will only get worse, progressing to severe gum disease, bone infection, gum recession and teeth so rotten they fall out after a lot of toothache pain. Proper dental treatment requires general anesthesia, and anyone who tells you otherwise is not practicing the standard of care. Under a safe and careful general anesthetic, the teeth and oral cavity will be examined, and the teeth cleaned above and below the gumline. Teeth that are painful, unstable, or too diseased to save will be surgically extracted. This can be a lengthy, and yes, expensive operation-so start saving now if you need to. Generally, preanesthetic blood testing is done a few days before the procedure, which takes a few hours and the pet goes home the same day with medications, including pain control, as appropriate. Talk to Dr. Mollie about what needs to be done, and get an estimate if needed. Be aware, however, that many oral problems are not visible until the tartar has been cleaned off to reveal the true state of the teeth themselves

Sometimes, surgery is the right treatment for a problem. Whether it is a growth that needs to be removed, painful teeth that need to be extracted, or a cut that needs to be closed, Dr. Mollie will make sure that the procedure is as safe and pain-free as possible. For that reason, Dr.Mollie will discuss with you all surgical options and plan the best possible procedure for your pet. Minor procedures may be performed at home, but general anesthesia will be performed in cooperation with additional professional staff in a full surgical suite for maximum safety. Yes, Dr Mollie has isoflourane inhalant anesthesia, oxygen support, breathing tubes and sterile instruments. Complex procedures and orthopedics will be referred to specialists when that will provide the best possible outcome for your beloved pet.

The most common routine surgery for pets is surgical sterilization, known as spaying for females and neutering for males. This surgery is usually done just prior to puberty, at around 5-6 months for cats and small dogs, and 6-7 months for larger dogs. When and whether to spay/neuter large dogs is a complicated issue-and not just for those sensitive to halacha. Nonsurgical birth control exists for pets and may be appropriate solution, too. Arrange a discussion with Dr Mollie to make informed choices for your pet based on current medical knowledge as well as your particular situation. Dr Mollie will refer you to a respected colleague to have your pets reproductive organs removed.

Declawing: Removing cats’ claws surgically is commonly done in many countries, but is considered inhumane and is illegal in Israel. Alternatives to declawing include nail trimming, training the cat to acceptable scratching materials, and SoftPaws™. Ear Cropping/Tail Docking: Surgically changing a dog’s ear shape and docking tails for cosmetic reasons are likewise considered inhumane and are illegal in Israel. 

When your pet is slowing down, it can be hard to know if it is just getting old or is it a problem that can be helped. Dr.Mollie can examine the pet and help you decide what can and should be done. When the prognosis is poor, we assess quality of life, and whether there is suffering or pain. Based on these factors the owner can choose hospice care or euthanasia

By law, every dog in Israel and every cat in Jerusalem must be vaccinated for Rabies, which is a scary fatal disease that pets can give to people by biting. Every dog must have a microchip and a yearly license. Did you know that every private veterinarian may microchip and vaccinate for Rabies and provide licenses as well as the veterinarians at the City Veterinary Services? The legally required vaccinations and microchipping can be done in your home, as well. But with Dr Mollie, your pet will also receive a thorough physical exam, a review of its medical history and a discussion of complete health care and other treatments and procedures as appropriate in one visit. Yearly vaccination for other diseases has become controversial, and people worry about “overvaccinating” their pets and potentially causing immune system problems. For this reason, Dr Mollie will discuss with you your pet’s lifestyle and risk of infectious diseases and will tailor a vaccination protocol that is right for you and your pet. Puppies and kittens need a series of life-saving vaccinations against common serious diseases, tailored to match their expected lifestyles. Unfortunately, every year puppies and kittens, and sometimes adult animals, die from preventable diseases. The vaccination series starts at two months old and usually continues monthly until four months old. Puppies must receive their first Rabies vaccination and microchip between three and six months. They also have a lower licensing fee if vaccinated by six months
Fleas, ticks, and worms are not just gross, they can cause discomfort and diseases and some can even jump to infest people! Fortunately modern parasite control is easier than ever and may involve routine deworming medication, spot-on flea and tick control, and injections against spirocerca (tolaat ha park). Dr Mollie will help you choose products that will work and are right for your pet and your family.
