Preventative Health Care
One of the most important things you can do for your cat or dog is to take care of them BEFORE they get sick. You can do this by ensuring that they are up to date on all vaccinations, getting an annual check-up, having bloodwork, asking one of our veterinarians to check your pet's teeth, and with regular treatments for pests and parasites that could put your animal at risk.
Preventative Care Services We Offer:
-General Health Exams
-Blood work : We offer many different types of blood work., depending on each of our patient's needs. Speak to a doctor today if you are interested in getting blood work done for your furry friend.
-Pest & Parasite Treatments : Fleas, lice, worms and more! If you have a concern about any type of parasite, contact the clinic. We carry many types of oral and topical treatments!
Here at the Thompson Veterinary Clinic, we offer many different types of surgeries, Ranging from routine spay and neuters to more difficult exploratory procedures. We have excellent surgeons and high-quality equipment to ensure that your pet is receiving the best possible care.
In addition to offering pre-anesthetic bloodwork, we also have our technicians and assistants continually monitoring your pet while he or she is under anesthetic.
Before our routine surgeries, such as spays or neuters, we ask that your cat or dog be up to date on all vaccines.
Just like in healthcare for humans, sometimes we need to take a look at what's happening internally to come up with the most accurate diagnosis for your pet.
Our digital radiology suite allows us to view results in minutes, and makes communication and coordinating with specialists fast and easy.
Dental health is extremely important for our pets too! Bad breath is not just something your pet may have, they may need their teeth checked out! At the Thompson Veterinary Clinic, we are fully equipped with dental tools to give your pet their pearly white smile back!
What We Offer:
- Dental Cleanings : Using a combination of manual and electronic scalers, we are able to remove tartar, plaque and calculus deposits on teeth.
- Dental Polishing : Using an electronic polisher and special paste, we make your pet's teeth bright white again and get rid of that bad breath.
- Dental Extractions : Our veterinarians do major or minor extractions based on the needs of the animal.
Dogs with microchips are 2.5 times more likely to be returned to their owner from a shelter, and a micro-chipped cat is 20 times more likely to get home.*
A small chip is implanted between the shoulder blades with a needle (a perfect time to do this is when you are having your pet spayed or neutered, or during a regular appoint), and this chip is read with a scanner commonly available in pet shelters, veterinary clinics and animal control offices. The reader will show a registration number which is tied to your information in a database maintained by a third-party.
Is your animal already micro-chipped? You can make it even easier for your pet to be found and returned:
Make sure that your pet makes it back home to you if they wander, ask about getting your dog or cat a microchip at your next visit.
We understand that sometimes the best treatment for your pet is to relieve them of their suffering when they are not able to sustain a good quality of life. If this is the best choice for your pet, we will help them cross the rainbow bridge.
