Yes! We treat pocket pets such as rodents, ferrets and rabbits. For these pint-sized pets, we can perform full examinations, laboratory tests, x-rays, general surgeries and dental work such as trimming overgrown teeth. If your pocket pet, ferret, or bunny has an issue beyond our scope of knowledge, we are happy to refer you to another veterinarian who focuses on these special animals.
We offer all vaccinations for the diseases your pet is likely to encounter in our region. We realize, however, that not every pet requires every vaccination. We tailor a unique vaccination schedule for your pet based on his or her needs and lifestyle.
Because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, we emphasize regular proactive laboratory testing to help us identify early stages of disease that may not be evident with physical examination alone. We also advocate aggressive parasite (including heartworm, intestinal, flea and tick) screening and prevention to avoid the health issues they cause in our pets and to prevent spreading to people.
After evaluating your pet’s lifestyle, age and general health, we will help you to decide what kind of care we should provide to give them best quality of life possible. Services we offer include:
At Family Veterinary Hospital, we tailor our protocols to your pet based on his or her individual risk factors. All pets are different, and puppies and kittens require treatment that differs from that of a mature pet.
Like us, our pets feel pain and discomfort. Recognizing and alleviating pain in your pet is the essence of good patient care. Family Veterinary Hospital uses advanced pain management protocols to keep your pet comfortable and pain free before, during and after surgery – or whenever your pet is in pain. At Family Vet we have want to offer as many treatment options as possible and have chosen to provide our patients the multiple benefits of LASER therapy, Acupuncture and Stem Cell therapy.
Pet Dental Care
Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health and can often be the cause of serious illness. 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.
Whether your pet is in for a routine spay or neuter procedure or requires a more complicated surgical procedure, he or she will be treated with the utmost care at Family Veterinary Hospital. Our doctors have experience performing a wide range of surgical procedures.
Home Visits & Day Patient
There are times when an old-fashioned home visit, or a house call, becomes necessary. If you are unable to bring your pet in to our office for any reason, we will be happy to arrange a trip to your home.
If you need to drop off your pet for an exam or treatment on your way to work or on the way to run errands and pick up later in the day, we can make things work for your schedule.
As your pet’s guardian and protector, the thought of letting them go can be a very challenging to face. It is a deeply personal decision that can be filled with much emotion and uncertainty, questions, and certain grief.
