Pet Owners– Dr. Mahaney must perform a physical exam on your pet to determine a diagnosis and prescribe treatment for your pet. To arrange for Dr. Mahaney to examine your pet, please see the Initial House Call Consultation (IHCC) section below.

The following are examples of the pet health concerns Dr. Mahaney addresses during his consultations:

  • My dog is having difficulty getting up, walking, and going up/down stairs. Could my dog have arthritis or another condition causing pain?
  • My pet has less energy, sleeps more, and exhibits little interest in playing or interacting. What illnesses could cause these conditions?
  • My dog gets anti-inflammatory medication to control pain associated with arthritis. Are there supplements or other medications that could benefit my pet’s condition?
  • My dog has chronic skin allergies and has been treated with steroids, antihistamines, or antibiotics. What else can I do to manage my dog’s skin condition?
  • My pet has less interest in eating its commercial dry food. What could be the cause of this and what can I do improve my pet’s appetite?
  • My pet has previously gotten sick post-vaccination and I am concerned about giving further vaccinations. Is another approach available to determine if a vaccination is needed?
  • How do I know if my pet is overweight and what can I do to safely promote weight loss?
