Services

We're pleased to offer the following services at Animal Advocates Veterinary Hospital:

Appointments

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.

Drop Off Services for Our Established Patients

At Animal Advocates Veterinary Hospital, we understand that our Clients have busy schedules, that's why we want to make it as easy as possible for your pets to be seen. We offer Drop Off Services, where you can schedule a day and time to drop off your pet and pick them up at your convenience. Due to the nature of the service we are only able to offer a limited number of drop off appointments a day in order to provide the best care and service for you and your pet.

Wellness Care

We believe prevention is important in protecting the quality of your pet's life, so we are always happy to discuss the benefits of proper nutrition, weight control, and the importance of regular exams.

We've created special wellness packages that cater to your pet's stage of life, from puppies and kittens to seniors. We have included routine vaccinations to heartworm, flea, and other parasite control to ensure that your pet is protected from disease and chronic conditions and to help our pet owner save on veterinary fees.

Our wellness packages offer discounts on veterinary exams, vaccinations, fecal exams, and deworming. We also offer special rates for products and services on heart worm prevention medication, microchip, and spay/neuter surgery.

Specialty Care

Pet Dental Care

Proper dental health is one of the most important, and often overlooked part of your pet's wellbeing. Proper and routine dental cleanings and regular dental care at home is essential in keeping your pet free of dental disease that could lead to complex, life-threatening health issues such as heart, liver and kidney disease.

Our veterinarians and staff are trained at dental surgical procedures to ensure that your pets are safely put through the process with careful use of pre-anesthetic lab tests, IV fluid support, and blood pressure monitoring, as well as pulse and blood oxygen monitoring. General anesthesia is used during the cleaning and extractions of broken, loose, diseased or painful teeth, so that the procedure can be safe and thorough. In order to minimize discomfort after the dental cleaning, we send pet's home with medication to manage any pain.

Ultrasound

We have the most up-to-date ultrasound equipment to adequately help diagnose your pet. Our trained veterinarians have the ability to use ultrasound to look inside the abdomen of your pet to often quickly and non-invasively diagnose a host of different health conditions. This means it can help us pinpoint the cause of common pet health issues such as vomiting, diarrhea, unexplained weight loss, elevated kidney or liver values on a blood test, abnormal urination, and much more.

We hold our veterinarians to the upmost standards in the adequate use of ultrasound equipment and the diagnosis of those results.

Surgery

We offer highly trained veterinarians that are able to perform general surgeries such as spay/neuter, soft tissue and minor orthopedic procedures with the latest surgical equipment.

For specialty surgeries, we have specialists in the area come to our hospital to perform complex surgeries on-site, but we never hesitate to refer our patients to an outside specialist for specific surgical needs.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
