Every Pet Deserves TLC

Your Pikesville or Owings Mills, MD pet isn't just a friend or roommate -- if you're like most owners, he's a treasured member of the family. And just as you would make sure your other loved ones receive the very best medical care possible, you want to know that your pet is receiving tender loving care from his veterinary practitioner. At TLC, that's exactly what we provide!

We're Ready to Help

Dr. Mitchell Lucas and the rest of our experienced team always strive to make your pet feel relaxed and at ease even as we deliver a high level of care. Our Reisterstown clinic provides a wide range of services, including:

  • Puppy and kitten care - Baby animals need even more TLC than adults. We can provide the necessary vaccinations and other wellness procedures to give your puppy or kitten a healthy start on life.
  • Senior pet care - Older animals also need extra veterinary attention. Our clinic can monitor your aging pet's health and make recommendations to keep him happy and healthy.
  • Exotic animal medicine - Our brand of TLX extends to ferrets, rabbits, rodents and reptiles.
  • Surgery - We can perform a variety of internal or external surgical procedures to improve your pet's quality of life -- or possibly even save that life.
  • Dental care - Tooth and gum diseases are both more common and more serious than many owners realize. We can provide regular dental examinations, cleanings, and any necessary treatment.
  • Pain management - If your pet suffers from acute or chronic pain, leave it to our TLC staff to provide a safe, effective pain management so he can enjoy life again.
  • Behavioral medicine - Phobias, fears, and cognitive dysfunction can plague animals as well as humans. Our skilled team can recommend the appropriate training or therapy to help you and your pet live together in harmony.
  • Laser pain therapy - Low-level laser treatments not only relive pain, but they also reduce swelling and accelerate tissue healing.
  • Dermatology - Pets routinely suffer from allergic reactions, bites, and even cancer can afflict your pet's sensitive skin. We can detect and treat those skin problems while also putting your pet on a pest prevention program.
  • Ear treatment - Ear mites and infections can cause painful problems for your pet. Let us take care of those ear problems.
  • Internal medicine - From poison treatment to emergency surgery, our veterinarian is ready to treat any internal health issues.
  • Cancer - If your pet has cancer, he needs all the TLC he can get. We can offer the appropriate course of treatment, from medication to surgery.
  • Ophthalmology - Eye disorders can cause blindness if left untreated. We can check your pet's eyes and recommend treatment options.
  • Grooming and boarding - Veterinary grooming helps us keep your pet's skin and nails in beautiful shape. Our veterinary boarding service gives your pet a safe, healthy place to stay while you're traveling.

At TLC for Pets, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
