In your search for a veterinarian, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as efficient service. Our goal is to provide the best client service and veterinary health care. We are committed to you and your pet.
Your pet's annual check-up will include a total physical exam.
It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary, not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual behaviors. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's attitude, including bowel movements and urination, and diet and routine modifications. Bring these notes when you visit us. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain the results of your pet's medical tests. Also, if you relocate and need to change veterinary care, it's good to have this documentation to provide a complete medical history.
Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual cleaning by your veterinarian may be in order. Like you, your pet can lose his teeth due to decay and neglect.
Dr. Bassham may refer you to specialist veterinarians who have completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care if your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience.
