La Mesa Veterinarians Launch New Website for Pet Owners

LA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - University Pet Hospital in La Mesa, California has announced the launch of the practice's new website, The practice designed the new website to better educate pet owners about the basics of pet care, including wellness care, routine vaccinations, and pet dental care. The practice also provides veterinary dermatology to help pets with allergies and has a dog groomer on staff. The new website has information on the practice's services and staff, along with "New Patient Center" to help pet owners learn more about what to expect during a visit to the pet hospital.

Dr. Jagpal Deo, a veterinarian with University Pet Hospital in La Mesa, announced that the practice has launched a new website, The website is designed to improve communication between pet owners and veterinarians, and expand pet owners' access to educational resources.

"Wellness care is fundamental to our practice," said Dr. Deo. "Whether it's a rabies vaccination or cleaning dogs' teeth, preventive care is essential to helping pets live a long and healthy life. The new website with its educational pet care resources is a natural complement to our practice's mission. We are committed to helping pet owners understand the importance of quality, preventive care."

Pet owners can learn more about the basics of pet wellness care through the "Veterinary Topics" library on the website. This library includes information on how to choose the right pet for your family, what to expect when you first bring your pet home, and how to keep your pet healthy by recognizing the signs of illness. The library also includes tips on at-home grooming and dental care, obedience training, and dietary considerations.

"Pet owners want to provide the best care possible for their pet, but if they aren't familiar with the best way to do so, an activity like brushing their pet's teeth can be a huge challenge," said Dr. Deo. "The video newsroom makes it easy for pet owners to learn everything from how to brush their dog's teeth to the best ways to keep their pets cool in the summer heat."

The website also includes information on the services available at the animal vet clinic. In addition to wellness care and vaccinations, these services include pet dental care, spay and neuter surgeries, grooming, and veterinary dermatology.

Pet owners who wish to learn more about the basics of pet care can sign up for the free bi-weekly e-newsletter. Each newsletter is tailored to pet-specific needs for a variety of animals, including cats, dogs, birds, pocket pets, and exotic pets.

The new website also features a veterinary blog by Dr. Deo where pet owners can post questions or problems for the veterinarian to answer.

First-time visitors to the animal vet clinic can learn more about what to expect through the "New Patient Center" on the website. This feature includes information on payment options, a virtual office tour, and online forms that can be filled out in advance of a visit.
