Lakewood Veterinarian Provides Pet Info on Updated Website

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2012) - The veterinary team of Dr. Eric L. Eisen, Dr. Carla A. Anema, and Dr. Erika Olson at Wadsworth Animal Hospital in Lakewood has introduced a website which they hope will help pet owners and pet lovers increase the levels of pet wellness care that they can provide at home. The practice is an advocate of progressive pain management, which teaches pet owners to be aware of early signs of discomfort in their pets so symptoms can be treated earlier and more efficiently. The website contains a wealth of information on various pet health topics and a "vetopedia," which is a glossary of terms veterinarians use in treating animals under their care.

Other information available from the Bel Mar area vet on the website includes a pet selector, along with articles on bringing your pet home and living with your pet. A video newsroom covers health topics, technology and science, and other interests. Their link to PetTV has cute videos of pets in action such as "talking pets." Because the doctors believe it is also important to teach children about how to care for pets, there is a special Pets4Kids section containing games, quizzes, puzzles and a coloring book. Visitors can become website members and receive benefits including additional tips and information, and a free subscription to the Pet Living & Wellness newsletter.

The veterinary team at the Bel Mar area vet clinic has been providing pet wellness care, senior pet care and progressive pain management since 1975. Commenting on the new website, Dr. Eric Eisen said, "As a Lakewood veterinarian, I know that pets are a tremendously important part of our lives. That's why we call ourselves 'your other family doctor.' Pet wellness care begins when you bring a pet home with proper puppy and kitten care. Many pet owners don't understand the importance of progressive pain management to their pet's ability to live a long and healthy life. We want to provide the information and tools they need to understand the cues their pets are providing and take the actions that are necessary to minimize their pets' pain and restore their health."

In addition to routine pet wellness check-ups, pet vaccinations, pet spay and neuter surgeries, pet dental services and illness care, the vet clinic also offers award-winning grooming services. Getting involved in the surrounding community and supporting local organizations is also important to this Lakewood veterinarian as evidenced by their recent sponsorship of a "Photos with Santa Day" to benefit Colorado St. Bernard Rescue.

Wadsworth Animal Hospital is located at 105 South Wadsworth Blvd, serving Lakewood and the surrounding communities of Englewood, Wheatridge, Arvada, Littleton, and Denver. Further information on this Bel Mar area vet may be obtained by visiting the website at www.wadsworthanimalhospital.com. Visitors to the website are also encouraged to sign up for the newsletter which contains a variety of information of pet health care and pet wellness topics.
