SERVICES

Generally Speaking

Here at PAZ, we do our very best to offer a vast variety of solutions for all your needs. We are a full-service veterinary practice that incorporates all styles and modes of medicine, and we research and implement whatever it takes to get your pet healthy, happy, and hanging out with you again.

While we offer a great variety of services, what is more important is the style and grace in which we practice. Does your pet always need every diagnostic and every treatment? Do you have to do it all right now? At PAZ, we spend time and work hard to understand you and your loved one. This way, we can recommend the best course of action for you and your pet. The difference? You’ll never feel pressured, intimidated, confused, or guilty. We’re on your team, and you’ll feel it.

Vaccines & Preventative Care

Vaccines are a hot button topic in many medical circles. You can find a handful of doctors from either camp: vaccinate for everything or don’t vaccinate at all. As with most things in life, there is a happy medium between these two camps, and with proper risk assessment we can find exactly what fits your pet’s needs best.

All of our Rabies vaccines are Thimeserol free, which means they are free of any hard metals added to the vaccine. The core vaccines we choose for dogs are for Distemper and Parvo, without additional flu types that are typically not effective. We do this to target the issues that most dogs face and leave the antigens out that are not necessary in all cases. If your furry friend needs additional protection, we have separate vaccines which can supplement the core vaccines.

Our feline vaccines are of the “PureVax” brand. These are longer lasting, safer, and cause fewer reactions. What to vaccinate for is a more complicated conversation than you might have thought, but by thoroughly explaining and educating you, we empower you to make easy, educated and safe decisions for your pet’s health.

In order to prevent illness or catch it early on, we recommend annual wellness visits for dogs and cats of all ages and breeds. There are numerous diagnostics and preventatives that we’ll discuss at your annual exams, and we’ll make sure they make sense for you and your pet. We want to ensure your beloved pets live the healthiest and longest lives possible!

Internal medicine

PAZ approaches each pet as an individual as opposed to a sub-category mentioned in a scientific paper. Two pets with the identical disease come with different health histories, genetics, and environments. No two pets heal the same way, and we acknowledge this.

Comprehensive exams and evaluations are priority and they are complemented with the best diagnostic tests and procedures. Whether it’s an endocrine disease (like diabetes, thyroid imbalance, Cushing’s, or Addison’s) or a mysterious infectious disease, it is our mission to help you find the answers and work to provide you and your pet with the appropriate treatment.

Herbals & Acupuncture

Herbals

Have you ever wondered where drugs come from in the first place? Most pharmaceuticals are developed based on natural treatments already in place (and around for thousands of years). If there is a particular case where a natural approach will work and save risk of side-effects – why not pursue this methodology? We’re here to help you make that choice.

Acupuncture

Dr. Adam Lassin is trained in Eastern and Western medicine, and can perform acupuncture for your canine friends if Western medicine isn’t cutting it. There are many benefits of acupuncture, and we can help you decide if it’s right for your pet.

Acupuncture stimulates the body’s own pain relieving and anti-inflammatory response. It relaxes muscles, helping to relieve both local and generalized pain. It also improves blood flow and oxygenation, and even helps remove metabolic toxins. Unlike medications, acupuncture doesn’t put your pet’s internal organs at risk of adverse side effects. If your pet needs medications or supplements, feel at ease knowing acupuncture won’t interact with them or create any adverse effects.

Animal Well-being and Psychology

Most clients have never had an opportunity to be educated on animal wellness and how maintaining good mental happiness translates to a happy and more fit pet. Whether it’s an indoor Maine Coon or an Aussie Sheppard that has no Cattle to corral, understanding your pet’s needs is vital in helping your pet thrive and be happy in your home.

Dermatology

Austin is the bomb, but we are known for more than one allergen in these parts. Whether its flea allergies, pemphigus foliaceus, or a nasty skin infection picked up from the greenbelt, we will be here to spot it, treat it, and have your baby ready to head back out to Zilker without the embarrassing itch.

Radiology and Ultrasound

We have the latest technology in digital X-ray, making the procedure faster, more accurate, and easy to share for consultation with other radiologists world-wide. We also offer dental radiology so we can provide the most thorough dental care. All our doctors are also trained on body scanning and tumor detection with ultrasonography. This is an added benefit to our senior pet screens in an effort to detect anything irregular, both inside and out!

Dentals & Surgery

All our doctors are skilled and confident surgeons, capable of performing all common procedures in general practice. We can help with tumor removal, laceration repair, spay and neuter, as well as dental cleanings and extractions. For very complicated surgical cases, rest assured that Dr. Tim Julien, our very own Chief Medical Officer, or our partnered mobile surgeons, will take great care of your pet.

Mobile Services

Do you have a cat that just flat out hates the ride around the block, or perhaps an older dog that would prefer to hang out in the front yard for their annual? While our clinics are awesome, there’s no place like home.

Call us out! We started as a mobile service in 2011 and Dr. Vaughan gets the most pleasure out of visiting you and your loved one in the home setting. Home visits usually mean less anxiety and a lot more fun. Mobile offerings include basic vaccines, behavioral consults, minor diagnostics and home-euthanasia. Give us a call and let one of our lovely friends at the front desk know that you are seeking a mobile visit. Mobile appointments fill up quickly, so try to call a week or two in advance!

Other Services

We offer additional in-house diagnostics. Whether it’s a blood test, urinalysis, cytology (looking at cells through a microscope), eye evaluations, neurologic testing, or behavioral awareness, we have the technology and know-how to uncover and resolve some of the most unusual cases.

We proudly use Antech diagnostic labs, allowing us to test for a broad range of diseases. Antech specializes in diagnostics and invests heavily in cutting edge innovative equipment that gives us more options, complete answers, and a second or third opinion when it comes to solving mysterious disease. We don’t keep you waiting, either – in-house test results take no longer than 30 minutes, and outbound test results typically arrive within 24 hours.
