  • To identify potential problems & diseases in early stages.
  • To provide the quality of life you wish to give your pet.

Comprehensive exams

The comprehensive physical exam is one of the best tools available for keeping your pet healthy.   It is an opportunity for the veterinarian to examine your pet from nose to tail and to point out anything that can or needs to be done to maintain your pet's health.  It is also an opportunity for your veterinarian to inform you of the most recent recommendations in pet health care.  During the exam, we discuss your pet’s vaccination needs and ask questions about your pet’s behavior, eating habits and other information. It is also an opportunity to discuss with the veterinary staff which diagnostic tests are recommended.  The veterinarians at Animal Medical Clinic believe that working closely with clients is a vital part of keeping pets healthy.

Vaccinations

Every pet is unique - especially when it comes to vaccinations. We feel that each patient has individual needs based on their history, background, exposure potential, environment, age, and household risks. We believe each patient should undergo 6-month evaluations and examinations to evaluate the above risk factors. Together, we will determine which vaccination protocol is best for that patient.

Diagnostic testing

Diagnostic testing can provide the veterinarian with information, such as if your pet does (or does not) have heartworm disease, feline leukemia or feline immunodeficiency virus, intestinal parasites, or a urinary tract infection. 

Routine spay & neuter surgery

Pet-population control is important, and altering your pet to prevent unwanted litters of puppies and kittens is strongly advised.  However, there are other reasons to spay and neuter your pet.  Spaying females helps to prevent mammary and uterine infections and cancers.  Neutering males helps to prevent prostate and testicular cancers.   Altering your pet at a young age may control some of the hormonal urges that lead to undesirable behaviors.

Microchip Identification

Pet identification is a must, but sometimes an ID tag and a collar is not enough. Each year, millions of pets go missing. The AVID Microchip Pet Identification System is offered and recommended by Animal Medical Clinic.  This is a means of permanent identification for your pet.  This method of identification is an excellent way to increase your chances of being reunited with your pet in the event that you are separated. A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted under your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades in a procedure similar to a vaccination. Each microchip is encoded with information that corresponds to a national pet database. Most veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have special scanners capable of reading the information on each microchip. Your pet's microchip can be scanned to confirm that it is in place and functioning properly.
