Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Blood tests are important to help determine your pets organ function and to detect certain diseases including diabetes, kidney disease, thyroid disease and more. Routine blood work can lead to early detection of some diseases, which can lead to a longer, healthier life for your beloved furry friend, as treatments can then be started earlier.
Routine blood work helps uncover underlying medical problems that you and your veterinarian may not be aware of, giving valuable insights into the health of your dog and the opportunity to catch illnesses early.
How do I understand the blood test results?
Your veterinarian will go over the blood work results with you, explaining in detail what each value means. Your veterinarian will also explain to you if any values are low or high, what could be the cause of this and how do we go forward. All questions regarding your pets blood work are welcome.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 506.382.0061. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
