Exams and Consultations
During your visit, our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, the veterinarian will do a complete physical examination on your pet. Laboratory diagnostics may be recommended if your pet is nearing or of an advanced age. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that he or she stays in a healthy condition. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major health issues. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to over-feed a pet that knows how to beg. Being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.
Pets’ nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for his or her lifestyle.
Every surgery comes with risks, but here at the Animal Care Clinic we strive to keep those to a minimum. Each pet’s anesthetic protocol is geared toward his or her particular needs and all precautions are taken to ensure the safest conditions possible. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands, and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible. We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures.
You will be asked at check in if you would like a pre-anesthetic blood work-up done. These tests allow us to have a better grasp on how healthy your pet is internally, and therefore how much risk there may be under anesthetic. While the tests are an option for any pet, we highly recommend them for any pet over the age of seven.

There are a variety of diseases which affect our pets and other animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to. It is important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on any legally required vaccinations for your pet.
Every year, thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping has become a standard procedure, during which a tiny chip is implanted under your pet’s skin, that can help reunite lost pets with their families. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure, and is completely safe. This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.
Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet’s health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems. We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
Our hospital provides a wide variety of in-house diagnostic testing testing with the most state…available including analyzers for blood samples, urine and fecal samples and digital radiography. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of care possible, and our diagnostic tools help us do that.
Our digital X-ray capabilities allow us to locate many injuries and abnormalities your animal may have, in a noninvasive and efficient manner. With over 20 years of experience, we know how to make your pets comfortable for this procedure, and deliver precise results.
There’s nothing more difficult for an animal lover than seeing a pet suffer. When something isn’t right with your dog or cat, you can usually tell right away, but because animals can’t talk to us, it can be difficult to determine exactly what is bothering them. Here at Animal Care Clinic, we have a full compliment of laboratory equipment for testing blood, urine and feces for abnormalities, so we can deliver quick and accurate diagnostic services. Whether it’s part of a checkup or to investigate a serious problem, we will take your and process your pet’s sample quickly and with care, and deliver the results in a professional, caring manner.
We offer a fully stocked pharmacy to fill your pet’s prescription needs. Having an on-site pharmacy provides you with a more convenient way to get your pet’s medication. We hope that this will save you time and ultimately enhance your experience with us.
