Effective Chronic Disease Management Plan

Disease Management

Chronic veterinary diseases can be caused by a number of medical and environmental factors and often are not easily cured. As a result, they may require long-term professional treatment that is tailored to the needs of your pet. Shaffer Veterinary Services is experienced in treating chronic veterinary diseases. Crowley veterinarian Dr. Dehna Shaffer works closely with her clients to develop an individualized, effective chronic disease management plan. If needed, she will work with your pet’s primary oncology, internal medicine, or other specialist to develop a plan of care.

Developing Your Pet’s Disease Management Plan with Shaffer Veterinary Services

When developing a management plan for any chronic disease, Shaffer Veterinary Services conducts a thorough physical examination, performs diagnostic testing, then meets with you for a one-on-one consultation to learn more about your pet’s condition and day-to-day activities. Your pet’s breed, species, age, weight, health status, environment, diet, and activity level is also considered. Dr. Dehna Shaffer will develop a plan that is effective, long lasting, and designed to be adjusted as the needs of your pet change.

Our pets face many of the chronic diseases that humans face and require continued measurement and management. These diseases may include:

  • diabetes
  • heart disease
  • pulmonary disease
  • Addisons
  • Cushings
  • arthritis

The key to good management is monitoring these diseases and working closely with your veterinarian to devise plans for continued care.

  • Cardiology
  • Ophthalmology
  • Neurology
  • Dermatology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Pulmonology
