What to Expect

puppy1.pngIn your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer our world class service and a state of the art veterinary facility.

Your pet's annual veterinary check-up will include a total physical exam, with a thorough investigation of your pet's head, body and tail. Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual cleaning by your veterinarian may be in order. Like you, your pet can lose his teeth due to decay and neglect. It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at our hospital, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Bring this notebook to your appointment. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests. Also, if you need to change veterinary hospitals, it's good to have this journal to provide a complete medical history.

Choose a veterinarian who is calm, compassionate and willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes. Try to find someone with whom both you and your pet feel comfortable. Choose a clinic with qualified staff and facilities to undertake surgery and perform procedures requiring anesthesia, such as teeth cleaning. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, your veterinarian will likely suggest a few precautionary tests, including a chest X-ray and a laboratory analysis of blood and urine, before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure you pet may require intravenous fluids;  antibiotics and pain relieving medications are often dispensed to be administered at home.
Dr. Vink-Taylor may refer you to a specialist, veterinarians who have completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care, if your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience.
