We're pleased to offer the following services in our Spanish Fort Veterinary Clinic:
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. We accept both exam room appointments with you and your pets and drop off appointments for your convenience. Walk-in (non-emergency) appointments are accepted, but scheduled appointments are always seen first. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately.
Blood Chemistry Panels help our veterinarians determine how your pets organs are functioning. This can help us accurately diagnose and treat illnesses as well as monitor your pets organ functions while taking certain medications.
Urine Analysis is a lab test of your pets urine. It can help detect the presence of substances that do not normally appear in the urine. This can include blood, protein, sugar, white blood cells. Urinalysis can be helpful in diagnosing urinary tract infections, diabetes, dehydration, kidney issues and bladder stones.
Intestinal Parasite testing is done annually during your Canine Wellness Visit. It is an examination of your pets feces under a microscope and allows us to see if there are parasites present. These parasites include but are not limited to: roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms and Coccidia.
The photo below was taken through our microscope in the lab. This pet was positive for Coccidia which is an intestinal tract infection caused by one-celled organisms (protozoa)
Blood Parasites (heartworms) are tested annually during your Canine Wellness Visit.
We use advanced technology in our x-rays and ultrasound imaging.
Radiology - Digital x-rays with the highest quality imaging to help us evaluate your pets condition.
Ultrasound - Our ultrasound is a non-invasive way to let the veterinarian look within your pet to diagnose their condition.
Dental X-rays - We recommend full mouth dental x-rays for all pets having dental procedures. This procedure allows us to detect disease that is hidden below the gum line.
We offer elective and non elective surgeries. These include but are not limited to spays, neuters, dentals, lumpectomies (removal of lumps), emergency surgeries, etc.
Oral care and prophylactic dental cleaning is an important part of maintaining your pets health. Dental disease can affect other organ systems including the kidneys and heart. We also offer a full mouth x-ray of your pets mouth to detect disease that is hidden below the gum line.
The photo below show the x-ray taken of a tooth that appeared normal above the gum line. Once X-rays were taken, the tooth was extracted due to disease at the root. Without x-rays, this tooth could have caused problems a few months later and could potentially have caused the pet to have another sedation for the extraction. The second photo is an actual image of the tooth that was removed.
Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body's natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect.
Emergency & Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 5 days a week during normal office hours who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Emergencies can be things such a rodent bait poisoning, being hit by a car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency. We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
For weekends and after hours, we rotate with several other local clinics to handle emergencies. You may have to be seen at one of the other clinics depending on which doctor is on call. If your pet has an after hours emergency, call us at 251-621-8900. You will talk first with the answering service who will page the veterinarian on call. If you do not receive a call back within 20 minutes, please call again.
