What to Expect

puppy1.png In 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 exceptional service in a modern veterinary setting.

Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a total physical exam, with a thorough investigation of your pet,  head-to-tail. Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual cleaning by your pet's health care team 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 habits and mood swings, along with diet and any other changes. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated occurrences along with medical tests may help uncover important health issues early. Also, if you need to change vets, 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 a vet with whom both you and your pet feel comfortable. Try to have it convenient, 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 may suggest lab work of blood and urine, and possibly x-rays before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure an IV drip is recommended and pain medication and antibiotics may be necessary before and after.

Your veterinarian 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.

We hope to welcome you to our Selkirk Animal Hospital family.
