Always! We are always thrilled to meet new patients. Our hospital works on an appointment-only basis, please call our client care staff to create an appointment for your pet.
Due to high demand, we function by appointment only. If your pet is experiencing an urgent need, please give us a call to see if we have any availability.
We are taking all of the necessary precautions to protect our clients and staff during these unprecedented times. Along with increased cleaning, we are taking multiple additional precautions including curbside service and telemedicine appointments.
Pet insurance works differently than human insurance. With most pet insurance, you will provide payment for veterinary visits up front and your chosen pet insurance company will reimburse you based on your plan. We do not work directly with any pet insurance companies, however we are happy to assist you in submitting a claim form. We encourage all pet parents to do their research and pick a pet insurance company based on their needs for their individual pets.
Nope! Zero bias here, we love all pets! We see cats, dogs, and most common exotic patients. We do not see livestock or poultry animals.
A fecal is where we send out a stool sample for your pet to have our partner laboratory test for intestinal parasites that may be living in your pets gastrointestinal tract. This test can detect all of the common parasites we see such as giardia, coccidia, hookworm, whipworm, and roundworms.
A fecal sample should be sent out for your pet when they are experiencing otherwise unexplained diarrhea, when they are first adopted, and/or at your pets annual examination. It is also wise to send out a fecal for your pet if they have been around other animals known to have tested positive for an intestinal parasite.
Lepto, short for leptospirosis, is a disease passed by wildlife urine and is often found in stagnant bodies of water and soil where wildlife frequent. This vaccine is only available to dogs and is highly recommended in Colorado. Dogs who contract lepto may experience lethargy, appetite loss, increased thirst, kidney and/or liver damage, and in severe cases, death. The disease Lepto can be transmitted to humans as well.
Typically puppies require three rounds of shots, spaced 3-4 weeks apart. For a timeline of what vaccinations are recommended at what age, please visit our puppy wellness page here.
