Auburn Animal Hospital
Wellness Exams: One of our veterinarians can conduct a through wellness exam to check for any health issues. Our veterinarians are also certified through the USDA to provide health certificates if needed.
Routine, soft tissue, and orthopedic surgeries are preformed at Auburn Animal Hospital. We take great care to ensure your pet comes through surgery well. We make sure the surgery field is kept sterile, monitor the patients heart and breathing throughout the procedure, and manage pain after the surgery. We recommend running a blood profile before surgery to ensure your pet is healthy enough to process the anesthetics or if different drugs need to be used for your pet. Bloodwork and IV fluids may be required for some patients or procedures. Care instructions will be explained to you when you pick your pet up. Pets having surgery should be fasted the night before and dropped off at the hospital before nine the morning of the procedure.
We provide full service boarding for dogs and cats. We do everything possible to make sure your pet is comfortable while away from home. Dogs are walked multiple times daily in our large fenced-in yard, are fed Science Diet or food you provide, and are given any medicines needed. We also have large outdoor runs for dogs to enjoy some fresh air. For cats we provide large cages, feed Science Diet or food you bring, administer medications if needed, and give affection multiple times daily. For the safety of all animals we require boarders to be up to date on vaccines. Dogs must be current on rabies, distemper/parvo, and kennel cough vaccines. Cats must be current on rabies and feline distemper vaccines. Boarders may be dropped off and picked up during regular business hours Monday thru Saturday.
Dental health is an important part of the well-being of your pet. When your pet develops excess tartar he or she will need a dental cleaning. We clean your pet's teeth with an ultrasonic scaler while he or she is under anesthesia. Extractions are also preformed when needed. We recommend a blood profile before the dental to ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia and may require it for some patients. All pets having a dental must be current on vaccines. Dental patients should be fasted the night before the procedure and dropped off at the hospital before 9 the morning of the cleaning.
We have the ability to preform many laboratory procedures in-house. This helps shorten diagnostic time to get your pet the best treatment faster. We can run blood profiles, urinalysis, thyroid tests, parasite tests, and take x-rays in our hospital.
Walk-In and Drop Off Services
If we have record of your pet being current on rabies there are a variety of services you can walk-in for during regular business hours. We offer nail trims, anal gland expressions, ear cleanings, sanitary clips, and shave-downs. We also offer baths for dogs and cats provided they are up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccinations. Baths should be droped off before ten the day of the bath.Type your paragraph here.
Diagnostic Exams: When your pet has any health related problem one of our veterinarians will perform a comprehensive exam to diagnose the problem and provide a treatment plan to get your pet better. Our veterinarians are highly skilled and have many tools at their disposal to pin point exactly what is wrong with your pet and provide the best treatment for getting him or her healthy.
Annual Exams: It is important to have a yearly check-up for your pet and keep it current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative. For dogs we recommend that the annual exam include a health check by one of our doctors, heartworm test, fecal test for intestinal parasites, a rabies vaccine if due, and a distemper/parvo vaccination combo if due. If your dog is going to be boarded, taken to the groomer, have any surgery, or is in contact with other dogs we also recomend a Bordetella vaccine to protect against kennel cough. A leptospirosis vaccine is needed if your dog is around any stagnant water that is accessible to wildlife. Once your dog has had a one year vaccine for rabies and distemper/parvo combination we can give it vaccines that will protect it for three years. Leptospirosis and Bordetella vaccines are needed yearly.
A yearly examination is also important for cats. For cats we recommend that the annual exam include a health exam by one of our doctors, a rabies vaccine if due, a feline distemper combination vaccine if due, and a deworming for intestinal parasites. If your cat goes outdoors or has never been tested for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) we recommend having it tested at the annual exam. Cats that have any chance of coming into contact with any cats outside of the home should be vaccinated against feline leukemia virus (FeLV). All of our vaccinations for cats provide three years of protection after having a one year vaccanation.
