In your search for a veterinarian, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to offer our best in patient care and client education within the comfort of your home.
Before your visit: We would be happy to contact your previous veterinarian for vaccine records but its also a good idea to provide us a list of past illness or surgery, and also to take note on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes you may have noticed. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, along with any diet changes. Sometimes things that may seem insignificant to you may help our veterinarians with your pet's healthcare puzzle.
During your visit: Your pet's annual visit will include a total physical exam from nose to tail, and all his other assorted body parts. We will weigh your pet, collect blood, urine or stool if necessary, and provide the appropriate vaccinations. We have a full inventory of preventives for dogs and cats and our veterinarians will recommend one that is right for your pet. In the event of illness or injury, we use a reference laboratory that will give us results of bloodwork sometimes in less than 24 hours. We also carry a state of the art digital X-ray unit that we will bring right into your living room and create high quality images that we can share with you in seconds.
Just for cats: We are proud of our feline friendly veterinary care and do our best to keep cats as calm as possible. We will require you to put your cat in a bathroom prior to our arrival. Extracting cats from furniture is stressful. We can call or text you 1/2 hour before our arrival if needed.
We understand that healthcare can be frightening to many of our patients. We strive to work with those "difficult" patients with kindness and compassion. However, should a patient appear to be harmful to itself or cause harm to our staff, sedation will be recommended.
Dr. Bailey may refer you to a specialist, or a veterinarian who has completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, opthomolgy or surgery. If your pet must undergo a procedure that requires hospitalization or general anesthesia, we will provide you with a list of area hospitals that we believe excel in patient care.
