FAQs

Do you offer payment plans?

Unfortunately, we do not offer payment plans. We do accept all major credit cards, cash, checks, and CareCredit.

Do you take walk-ins?

We encourage appointments but understand that sometimes pets need to be seen sooner rather than later.  We suggest calling before coming in to ensure that we can see you the same day in a timely manner.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Your pet and any questions or concerns that you may want to discuss with the doctor.

What do you recommend for flea and tick prevention?

Depending on your pet, we carry both a prescription grade topical and a chewable option.

Should I deworm my sheep/goats?

They should be dewormed as needed.  A fecal test or Famacha score can help determine when it is necessary.

Do you recommend vaccinating cattle?

Cattle need yearly vaccines just like your dogs and cats.  The diseases we recommend vaccinating against are: clostridial including tetanus, and reproductive diseases such as vibrio lepto, IBR, BVD, BRSV, and PI3.  Anthrax vaccine is advisable in certain areas where anthrax is prevalent.

What does my new puppy or kitten need?

Congrats you got a new puppy or kitten! Your new puppy or kitten will need to been seen right away to establish a relationship with our veterinarians. We recommend a series of vaccines that will be discussed at your first appointment. These vaccines are very important to protect the health of your pet.

Yes.  Rabies is a 100% fatal and preventable disease in both animals and humans.  Even if your pet does not go outside, they still need to be vaccinated according to city ordinance.

Why spay and neuter my pet?

Early spaying of female dogs and cats can help protect them from some serious health problems later in life such as uterine infections and breast cancer. Neutering your male pet can also lessen its risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate gland) and testicular cancer.

By having your dog or cat sterilized, you will do you part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens.

What diseases should my sheep/goats be vaccinated against?

A clostridial class of drugs including tetanus will help protect your herd from diseases such as overeating, black leg, tetanus, pulpy kidney disease.

A good source of minerals is necessary for the healthy development of the fetus.  Energy is required, especially in late term pregnancy, to prevent pregnancy toxemia.
