TLC for Pets

All pets deserve TLC from their vet. Gentle and compassionate veterinary care will make vet visits a pleasant experience for your pet. At TLC for Pets, we share your love and concern for your feline, canine, or exotic pet. We make every effort to provide exemplary medical care to help your pet enjoy a long, healthy life. Whether you’re a new pet parent or have owned a pet for years, you’ll appreciate working with our experienced staff in caring for the health and welfare of your pet.

Meet Our Team

TLC for Pets is led by Dr. Mitchell Lucas, our full service Reisterstown and Owings Mills vet. Dr. Lucas and our veterinary team maintain a high veterinary standard designed to improve your pet's health. Our team has experience caring for all kinds of pets, traditional and exotic, and our animal hospital has the resources to treat all kinds of conditions. Our one stop facility makes it easy for you to keep up with your pet’s healthcare needs.

Services We Provide  

If you're in Reisterstown or Owings Mills, bring your pet to our TLC clinic and you can benefit from the following services and more:

  • Wellness Exams – We offer annual wellness exams to evaluate the state of your pet's health. During a wellness exam, our veterinarian will check your pet's eyes, nose, ears, mouth, and teeth for signs of health or dental problems. We’ll inspect his skin and fur for dermatology issues and test his joints for arthritis. We’ll also listen to his heart and lungs for irregularities. By detecting health issues early on, we can prevent them from escalating into major problems that require extensive medical care later down the line.
  • Puppy/Kitten Care - Baby animals require TLC as their immune systems are still developing, making them vulnerable to sickness and disease. We’ll make sure your baby pets get a complete wellness exam, vaccinations, parasite control, and other services they need to start a healthy life.
  • Senior Pet Care – Senior pets also need extra care to keep them in good health. We’ll monitor your pets’ health, exercise regimen and diet carefully as they age, and recommend treatments as needed to maintain their health.
  • Surgery – Our animal hospital offers general and orthopedic surgeries to treat medical conditions, set broken bones, and correct joint problems that hinder mobility. Pet surgery can enhance the quality of your pets’ lives, or prolong it, depending on your pets’ condition. We also perform laser treatments to manage pain and accelerate your pet’s healing.
