El Dorado Hills, CA Veterinarian

Taking your pet to the veterinarian for wellness care and other services helps ensure they live a long and happy life. Insight Veterinary Wellness Center offers comprehensive pet care for owners looking for a veterinarian in El Dorado Hills.

Our team gives every pet love and attention and looks to prevent minor issues from developing into significant health concerns.

Pet Emergency Care

Bring your pet in when you find yourself in need of emergency vet services. We offer a variety of pet urgent care services, including:

  • Imaging
  • Diagnostics
  • Radiology
  • Endoscopy

It’s a big help when owners call ahead and give us the status of their pet’s condition. That lets us prepare the right tools and equipment to treat your dog or cat’s health concern. It’s a good idea to seek out emergency vet services in cases of:

  • Pale gums
  • Dehydration
  • Ongoing lethargy
  • Passing out
  • Rapid temperature fluctuations
  • Bloody stools
  • Broken bones
  • Lameness in one or more limbs

Do what you can to keep your pet stable. Bringing your dog or cat in for care earlier improves the chances of a good outcome for your pet.

Pet Dental Care

Dental care is an essential part of keeping your pet healthy. An untreated infection could lead to other health complications. A lack of regular dog and cat teeth cleaning could lead to problems like receding gum tissue and periodontitis.

Insight Veterinary Wellness Center recommends you do the following at home to improve your pet’s oral health:

  • Brush teeth
  • Check for gum or teeth issues
  • Feed them treats that fight plaque build-up

Our facility keeps pets comfortable during all procedures. We offer anesthesia suited to your dog or cat’s breed and physical characteristics.

Pet Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering your pets is essential to keeping the population of unwanted dogs and cats under control. Otherwise, they end up roaming the streets and getting hurt or killed. Many end up in shelters where they must be put down.

Bringing your pet in for spay and neuter services offers the following benefits.

Male Dogs and Cats
  • Less aggression toward other males
  • Lowered risk of developing a prostate infection or prostate cancer
  • Reduces inclination to roam around outside and end up in a fight
Female Dogs and Cats
  • Not going into heat keeps them out of dangerous situations
  • Eliminates uncomfortable fluctuations in hormone levels
  • Keeps anxiety under control
  • Protects from uterine infections

Additional Services

Insight Veterinary Wellness Center also provides the following services at our El Dorado Hills facility:

  • Surgery — We use the latest cat and dog surgery techniques.
  • Grooming — Take advantage of our cat and dog grooming services to keep your pet looking its best.
  • Dermatology — Give your pet relief from irritating and troublesome skin issues by seeing our cat and dog dermatologist.

We have trusted Dr. P with our much-loved pets for over 20 years. When our dog, Havok, needed life-saving surgery, it was late on a Saturday. Our regular vet advised we just say our goodbyes. Then we called Dr. P. Even though it was after hours, he reopened the hospital and had us come in immediately. His pet first approach saved our dog and made him our forever vet.

Aaron E.

I highly recommend IVWC. The staff will always welcome you with a smile because they LOVE your pet! Their extensive experience provides thorough and honest care. As well as offering compassion and loving support during stressful times. Come in and let them get to know you and your pet.

Detra F.

It is comforting for us to know, when we take our dogs to Dr. Pawlowski, our pets are in the best possible hands. Dr. P’s knowledge, integrity and compassion have been a blessing for us. Kristi’s extensive experience as an RVT and manager enhances our visits and ensures us of a smooth-running operation.

Mark C.

Dr. P is the best vet I’ve ever had! Over the years he has provided gentle care that puts our pets and me at ease. I feel he goes above and beyond to serve the needs of our pets. I would never hesitate to recommend his practice.
