General Medicine and Services
Examinations - At Village Animal Clinic, we offer comprehensive examinations that help evaluate the overall health of your pet. Regular physical examinations can detect problems in their early stages, before they become serious illnesses requiring prolonged treatment. Preventative medicine is the easiest, least expensive and most important way to keep your pet healthy. Early detection ensures prompt action that may solve the problem before serious consequences occur.
Vaccines - Immunizations are a crucial part of your pet's health care. Some immunizations are recommended yearly while others are given every three years. Usually administered during an annual exam, we work with you to develop an individual vaccine protocol that best suits your pet's needs.
Senior Total Body Work-Up - Our pets age at a much faster rate than us. Therefore early testing and diagnosis of possible health problems is crucial for a long, healthy and happy life. The Senior Total Body Work-Up consists of comprehensive tests that will alert us to potential problems and allow us to diagnose them early to help your pet. Includes Comprehensive Blood Profile, Thyroid Testing, Complete Blood Count, Full Body Radiographs (to help screen for cancer and diseases of the lungs, heart, intestines, liver and bladder), Complete Eye Exam including glaucoma testing, Blood Pressure Measurements, Fecal Exam, and Urinalysis.
Microchip Identification - This unique form of identification is an easy, yet permanent way to bring your pet home quickly should he / she become lost. The microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades, and stays there for his / her entire life. This procedure is as easy and as painless as a vaccination. Each microchip has a unique number. This number, along with information about the owner and pet, are added to a national pet registry. Most veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have electronic scanners for detecting and reading these implanted microchips. If a lost pet is found and a microchip is scanned it is easy for you to be contacted.
Nutritional Counseling -Proper diet is an important part of your pet's health. Should your pet need a new diet due to health concerns or you are just looking for a healthy alternative to your current brand, we offer individual consultations and nutritional plans to help keep your pet healthy.
Behavior Counseling -Pets often show illness or anxiety through improper or changed behavior. Let our staff help you determine what is appropriate behavior and what you can do to change inappropriate behavior.
Dermatology -Hair loss and constant scratching can indicate fleas, food allergies or other more serious skin conditions. We provide specialized dermatological services to all of our patients including allergy testing and desensitization treatments.
Dentistry -Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet's health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. Our veterinary staff regularly performs oral exams, cleanings and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive health care goals.
Some Signs of Dental Problems include:
- Bad breath – one of the first signs of dental disease
- A yellowish-brown crust of plaque on the teeth near the gum line
- Red and swollen gums
- Pain or bleeding when your pet eats or when the mouth or gums are touched
- Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
- Loose or missing teeth
Dental problems, if left untreated, can often lead to larger systemic problems in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver.
We also offer:
- Soft tissue Surgery
- Pain Management
- Diagnostic Blood and Urine Profiles
- Prescription Diets
- Parasite prevention
