We believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal is to provide 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 hospital.
Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a thorough physical exam. Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual cleaning by your veterinarian maybe 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 the vet, 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. Take this notebook when you visit us. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests.
Choosing a veterinarian who is calm, compassionate and willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes is important, and Dr. Chamberlain does this well! We understand it is also important to have a trusted Veterinarian with whom both you and your pet feel comfortable. We are a hospital with a qualified staff to undertake surgery and perform procedures requiring anesthesia. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, we suggest a physical exam and blood work, before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure your pet will receive IV fluids, to help keep him or her hydrated but also help flush out the anesthetic for quicker recovery.
Dr. Chamberlain 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.
