Our most important goal is to help our clients’ pets live long, healthy, happy lives.

From the moment you bring home your dog or cat, young or old, Margaret Pet Medical Center is here to serve their needs.
It may sound funny, but “dog breath” may be no laughing matter. Malodorous breath can be a sign of serious problems with your dog’s health. It’s important to take good care of your best friend’s teeth and gums to avoid these problems. We can help via in-clinic procedures and explaining how to protect your pet’s oral health at home.
When a new dog or cat enters your family, it’s important to ensure your new pet is up to date on its vaccinations. Thanks to the development of vaccines against deadly diseases, dogs and cats are living longer, healthier lives. One of our highly trained veterinarians will determine which vaccines your pet needs and develop an individualized vaccination plan.
Like their human companions, it’s important for pets to receive routine checkups. Visiting your vet at least once a year for a wellness exam (perhaps scheduled along with vaccine boosters) is a vital preventative measure and gives your vet an opportunity to better know your pet and possibly recognize subtle changes that could indicate a health concern.
Artificial Insemination & Pregnancy Packages
When breeding your purebred dog or handling your cat’s pregnancy, it’s important to ensure they receive quality care and treatment from insemination to birth. We offer surgical artificial insemination as well as progesterone tests, pregnancy X-rays, and C-sections to provide care throughout the stages of your pet’s pregnancy. Call for more details.
There are few things more heartbreaking than a lost pet. Even the most well-trained animal companions can find themselves separated from their families. A simple, effective way to make sure a lost pet returns to you is the pain-free implantation of a traceable microchip. A great idea for all pets, young or old.
Few pet owners can resist tossing their furry friends a treat now and then. But when humans express love for their pets through food, the results can harmful. Pets, like people, require healthy, balanced diets. We can help you find the best food for your pet’s breed, age, and exercise level.
Painless and entirely noninvasive, x-rays are an important tool used to diagnose a number of injuries or ailments that may be causing distress to your pet. The amount of radiation exposure needed to perform x-rays is very low, making it a safe form of testing for all pets, even those that are very young or who may be pregnant.

Our staff is trained to see the signs of pain and discomfort in cats and dogs, and the best ways to treat that pain. We will develop an individualized pain management plan to ensure your pet is as comfortable as possible.
Hospice and Euthanasia
Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is never easy and sometimes it’s difficult to know just when that time has come. If you’re having difficulty caring for a sick pet at home and aren’t ready to let go, we offer compassionate hospice care. If euthanasia becomes the only humane option, we will make sure you understand the process and make every effort to accommodate any final wishes you may have.
For our elderly and homebound clients, if you are unable to bring your pet to our clinic for services, we may be able to bring our services to you. If you live within a 10-15 mile radius of our Ceres, CA location, call us for more information.
