An office visit starts with an examination by the doctor, including a consultation with you about any concerns you may have about your pet regarding vaccines, diet, or any other issues your pet may be having.
If there are recommended tests, vaccines, diets, procedures, etc., we would ask your permission to proceed with the necessary steps to keep your pet in optimal health. Since pets cannot tell us when something is wrong, appropriate diagnostics can be helpful in detecting diseases at n early stage. Based on our findings we can then make recommendations to ensure proper treatment in the future.
Our hospital is up-to-date with diagnostic equipment, including a laboratory, ultrasound technology and digital radiology. Our complete pharmacy allows us to begin treatment immediately in most cases.
Our doctors are also available on a limited basis in the treating of large animals at our clinic or through mobile service.
Vaccines and Microchips:
We are pleased to provide annual vaccines. While rabies and distemper vaccines are most commonly known, we offer other vaccines based on environments and conditions to which your pet is exposed. Our staff will talk with you on your visit in order to provide the best vaccine protocol for your pet.
Microchips are a safe and popular way to permanently identify your pet, and you as the owner, in the case your pet ever becomes lost. This involves placing a small electronic chip, roughly the size and shape of a grain of rice, just under the skin on the back of the pet's neck. If your pet becomes lost and is taken somewhere that is capable of scanning the pet for a microchip, you can be easily notified that your pet has been found. This chip can be given at any time during a regular office visit.
Our two surgery suites are fully equipped with the high tech tools needed to provide safe surgical care for your pets. We have patient warming devices, monitors, and a veterinary technician monitoring the patient at all times.
We perform routine surgeries including spays and neuters, lump and cyst removals, dental cleanings and extractions. At times, more involved surgeries are necessary such as exploratories and orthopedic procedures, which can be done in-clinic, although surgical specialist are located in a 90 mile radius and in certain cases, pets may be referred to them.
Our ICU allows our patients to recover from surgery comfortably and safely. Here they are monitored throughout their recovery. During this time they are kept warm and are given appropriate pain relief to begin their healing process.
Our computerized appointment book allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come in immediately.
