Our mission is to provide the highest quality medical and surgical care to our patients while providing our clients with educational guidance and assistance in all aspects of animal care and ownership, including public health awareness. We strive to exceed our clients’ expectation by treating owners and their pets with respect, honesty, compassion; and treating all animals as if they were our own. Our services are provided in a clean, safe, and friendly environment and our goals are to work as a team, complementing each other’s talents and retaining a positive attitude. We have made veterinary medicine our life work, because we love the animals that are given to our care.
One of the best ways to keep your pet healthy is to have an annual physical examination!
Our veterinarian(s) will perform a thorough physical examination of your pet to listen, look and feel for any subtle changes in their physical health. As animals grow older, they become more susceptible to developing health problems, many of which can be managed through simple changes in diet and lifestyle.
Wheat City offers an extensive list of surgical procedures, both routine and specialized. Our doctor(s) and support staff complete continuing education courses regularly to keep up to date on the newest procedures that minimize pain and post-operative recovery time. We want our patients to be able to get back to their regular lives and play as soon as it is safely possible.
Birds, Pocket Pets, Rabbits, and Exotics
Having a specialty pet requires special care. Here at our clinic, we are knowledgeable about pocket pets, birds, rabbits and recently started to provide care for exotic pets. As smaller animals, you may think these special little critters require less care, but they have unique needs and can develop various diseases. Annual exams can help monitor their overall health and husbandry to make for a long and healthy life.
Similar to human vaccines, animal vaccinations are administered to prevent disease from occurring in animals. Routinely vaccinating animals is often more affordable than paying for the treatment of sick animals, reduces transmission of microorganisms in the animal population, and reduces animal suffering. Pets are often given vaccines for infectious diseases such as rabies, parvovirus, distemper, and hepatitis.
A healthy mouth is an important part of an overall healthy body and a long, happy life. We provide dental cleanings under general anesthetic for the comfort and safety of your pet as well as minor dental procedures.
Help your pet live a long, healthy life through the power of daily brushing, regular checkups and the right nutrition.
