We're pleased to offer the following services in our Meridian Veterinary Clinic:
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
All pets should have an annual examination prior to receiving their vaccinations. These exams are important in allowing us to determine if your animal can safely receive vaccines and also help us find other health problems early on. The visit is also a good time to express any concerns you may have regarding your pet's health or behavior.
General exams are provided for any pet that is having medical, surgical, or behavior problems.
Twice yearly exams are encouraged because problems occur at an accelerated pace in seniors. We also recommend a blood profile and urinalysis to help us catch problems early in their course and start treatment.
Rabies vaccinations are required by state law for dogs and are good for 3 years in adult dogs. For new puppies the rabies shot needs updating at one year.
Other vaccinations are needed to provide your pet protection against common infections. The doctors and staff can explain which vaccinations are needed and also provide a schedule for new puppy and kitten vaccinations. Most boarding and grooming facilities require that animals be current on vaccines. We will be happy to provide you with the vaccine records for this purpose.
Pet Care Clinic performs spays, neuters, feline declawing, in addition to soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries. We have laser surgery available as an option for declaws.
Annual dental exams and teeth cleaning are recommended. They help ensure a healthier pet by decreasing the chance of bacterial infections, kidney problems and heart disease. Dental problems can cause chronic infections and pain that can affect your pet's quality of life. We have specialized dental x-ray available to help in the management of your pet's dental health.
Over the past three years, Pet Care Clinic has completely replaced the laboratory equipment with the latest technology available. We are able to run extensive blood work in-house, providing quicker diagnosis and subsequent treatment to help ensure a faster recovery. We can also perform radiology and ultrasonography.
Our pharmacy is stocked to provide your pet with the most medications they will need to help ensure their recovery and continued health. If you prefer to have a written prescription, we will be happy to provide it.
Pet Care Clinic operates an open hospital. This means that our team welcomes owners to be with their animals during any medical procedure, whether a simple vaccination or a complex surgery.
Pet Care Clinic accepts payment via cash, check, MasterCard, or Visa. So that we can continue to provide you high quality service utilizing the best medical technologies, we request that payment be made at the time services are rendered.
We provide estimates for all surgeries and hospitalizations. If you have not received an estimate, you are welcome to request one at any time for your expected charges.
