Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we do ask that all wellness visits be scheduled ahead of time. We typically book out about 1-2 weeks in advance for regular visits. If you have a sick pet, please call us first thing and we will do our best to fit you in for a same day appointment.
Every dog and cat should receive preventative treatments for heartworms, fleas and ticks. These products help to protect your pet from life threatening illnesses that are easily prevented. There are many options from monthly to every 12 month treatments to help keep your loved one safe. Even if your animals live inside, they can still be exposed.
Yes, our doctors perform surgery 4 days a week on-site. We offer spaying, neutering, dental procedures, soft tissue surgeries and some orthopedic procedures. Because we do get booked up sometimes months ahead of time, we do suggest scheduling as soon as possible.
Your pet can be spayed or neutered starting at 6 months of age. We tend to book out several months in advance, so we suggest making your spay or neuter appointment as soon as possible. Spaying or neutering your pets can greatly reduce their risk of developing health or behavior problems later on in life. It also benefits local shelters by helping with population control.
No food after midnight, so please take up all food the night before but they can have water.
Some of the early signs of parvovirus include lethargy, loss of appetite, vomiting; and severe, often bloody, diarrhea. If you suspect your puppy might have parvo, please call us and let us know before you come in as parvo is extremely contagious and can contaminate the hospital’s environment. Parvo is a potentially fatal disease. The survival rate of dogs treated by a veterinarian is 68 to 92 percent.
We suggest having a “baseline” bloodwork done around 2-3 years of age to have a good idea of your pet’s normal levels. Once your pet reaches the age of 7 years we suggest a yearly bloodwork to monitor the major organs’ functions and blood health. We will also strongly suggest bloodwork to be done before any major surgery after a certain age, or if your animal has preexisting conditions.
There could be several issues causing your pet to rub their rear on the ground. Please call us to make an appointment, and it would be helpful if you brought a fecal sample along for us to test for intestinal parasites.
We do not treat exotic pets, we do treat dogs and cats.
We do not adopt animals. We do work with Laurens County Animal Control and Laurens County Humane Society as well as a number of rescue organizations who do. Any of these organizations are great resources if you are looking to adopt.
