During this visit our veterinarians will perform a thorough physical examination to find and treat a disease before it becomes serious. Your pet may also receive any vaccinations that are due, an examination of their teeth for dental problems, collection of a stool sample, and urine or blood samples to test for parasites and diseases. Your pet’s history will be reviewed along with diet, exercise, lifestyle, heartworm prevention and tick and flea prevention.
- General, Orthopedic and Soft Tissue Surgery
- Our surgical services include minimally non-invasive surgery and more in-depth surgery for a wide range of needs from spay and neutering your dog or cat, to dental cleaning and dentistry, certain orthopedic procedures, biopsies and tumor removals, abdominal surgeries, cryosurgery and other various surgeries and procedures.
Spay or Neuter
- When should my pet be spayed or neutered? Typically the traditional age for spay or neutering four months but pets as young as eight weeks old can be neutered as long as they are healthy. Studies have shown that neutering your male pet can prevent testicular cancer and some prostate problems. Spaying female pets helps prevent uterine diseases and mammary cancer.
- Pet identification is a must and Chipman Road Animal Clinic believes in microchipping your pets. Microchipping is a way to tap into a nationwide permanent identification system for your pet. This is a great way to increase the odds tremendously if you become separated from your pet at any time during their lives. A dog microchip and cat microchip is very small, about the size and shape of a grain of rice and it is implanted under your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades in a quick procedure similar to a vaccination. Each microchip has your pet’s identification that corresponds to a national pet database. Most veterinarian clinics and animal shelters have special scanners that can read the information on a microchip to identify found animals. Chipman Road Animal Clinic can scan your pet’s microchip to ensure it is in place and functional and we can implant microchips in your new pets too.
