We recommend a complete physical exam every 6-12 months depending on the age of the pet. Even healthy pets need regular visits to identify problems early which in turn helps increase the chances of recovery and could also reduce cost of treatment. Since our pets cannot speak for themselves a through history of your pet’s home life may give us clues of an existing or developing problem.
Unfortunately, some of our pets will need emergency care at some point in their lives. If your pet has an emergency or needs urgent care, please call us at 559.534.5470 to see if we can accommodate them in our schedule. Our doctor has extensive experience working in emergency medicine and this is one of his areas of interest. These include treating feline urethral obstruction, allergic reactions, foxtail searches, laceration repairs, vomiting, and diarrhea to mention a few.
Puppies and kittens need a series of vaccines to prevent common diseases. We offer packages that offer the needed vaccinations, and parasite treatment and include spay/neuter. The packages ensure you start your new family member on the right track.
Your pet’s oral health impacts their general health. Pets with cleaner mouths live longer happier lives. The bacteria that cause periodontal disease may get into the bloodstream and cause heart, kidney, or liver disease. We offer digital dental x-rays that will show the extent of the periodontal disease and if any extractions are needed. Regular dental cleaning will help your pet keep their teeth longer and live a happier life.
We offer common surgery procedures including Spay, neutering, dental extractions, and removal of skin masses/lumps. We also offer urgent care procedures including laceration repairs, abscess treatment, intestinal foreign body obstruction, and bladder stone removal. If we are not equipped to handle the procedure your patient needs, we will do our best to direct you to a hospital that can perform the procedure.
We have a well-equipped in-house laboratory and use an advanced referral lab to meet your pet’s needs. Our hospital is equipped with digital x-rays with radiologist reviews if needed to assist in evaluating our patients. We also have an ultrasound in the hospital that helps our doctor in patient evaluation.
We have a well-stocked pharmacy to meet our patient’s needs. Special items may be ordered for prompt delivery when needed. Written prescriptions are provided for medications we don’t carry or at the client’s request.
We encourage all our clients to consider microchipping their pets. Microchipping is the safest, most effective method for identifying your pet, to help him or her to be returned if lost.
We encourage our clients to consider getting insurance for their pets. This will help cover unexpected costs in case of an emergency and enable you to provide the best care without worrying about cost.
