We offer life-long pet care from puppy and kitten vaccines, to adult wellness exams, and geriatric care.
Most puppies and kittens require three well-pet exams with vaccinations at 8, 12 and 16 weeks, parasite testing/treatment, and feline leukemia/FIV testing for kittens. Exams always include counseling for training and recommendations for spay/neuter surgery if indicated.
We also provide identification chip implantation with internationally readable microchips. Microchips are a form of permanent identification, are about the size of a grain of wild rice, and is implanted with a needle underneath the skin between the shoulder blades. Each chip has a unique code that is transmitted to a display when a pet is scanned at a clinic or shelter. The clinic then calls the microchip company to receive the owner’s contact information. It is always a good idea to microchip your pet, as it is possible for a pet to lose their collar.
Microchips can be implanted at any time, but is often done while the pet is under sedation or anesthesia for something else (commonly a spay or neuter.) It is never too late to microchip your pet.
Highland Animal Clinic believes in microchipping all pets to help return more lost pets to their owners. Because of this belief, we offer the microchip and implantation for only $45.
Because pets age approximately 7 times faster than humans, health problems can progress more rapidly. Lots of changes can occur that are not easily detected by your pet’s outward appearance. Preventative health care recommendations are made based on examination findings and your pet’s individual needs and lifestyle. This may include blood, urine or fecal tests, vaccinations, dietary or exercise advice and lifestyle changes. Annual exams aide in early detection and enable our veterinarians to diagnose potential diseases before they become a serious issue.
