At Whitesburg Animal Hospital, we specialize in caring for your pet’s complete health. We believe that taking a comprehensive approach is the best way to guarantee your pet receives the highest quality, personalized care. As a result, we offer our clients the following veterinary services in addition to our wellness services.
Proper nutrition plays an important role in your pet’s overall health. Your veterinarian can help you determine a healthy diet for your pet based on age, weight, activity level, and any existing medical conditions. A healthy diet will increase your pet’s energy level and improve quality of life.
We are experienced in providing oncology, endocrinology, cardiology, dermatology, and gastroenterology services. With advanced technology and rigorous training, we are able to utilize internal medicine to diagnose and treat medical conditions including skin, ear, renal, and cardiac diseases.
Just as in humans, cancer can be life threatening for your pet. As an owner, it is important to seek medical attention as quickly as possible if your pet is demonstrating any physical or behavioral changes. Early diagnosis is key to receiving proper treatment. Our oncology services include specialist care, referrals, surgery, chemotherapy, and nutritional care.
Careful diagnosis is often required when detecting and treating skin allergies and other dermatological conditions. We can perform allergy testing and biopsies to develop an effective treatment plan for even the most complex skin and allergy problems. If your pet is excessively scratching, chewing, or licking or has inflammation, redness, or other signs of skin irritation, you should seek immediate care.
Our in-house pharmacy is open during normal business hours and is fully stocked. As a result, our doctors and staff are able to provide your pet with medication quickly and conveniently. For patients that are difficult to medicate, most medications can be compounded into topical applications or tasty chews. In addition to filling prescriptions, our staff is also available to provide instructions regarding appropriate dosage and administration techniques. If you have difficulty remembering to give your pet antibiotics, ask us about a long lasting (up to 10 days) antibiotic injection.
Most medications and preventives can be purchased through our online store and shipped directly to your home. To refill your pet’s prescription, please call or email or use our online PetPortal for fast and easy pick up.
Saying goodbye to your companion is never easy, but please know that we are here to help you through this very difficult process. While having a plan for end-of-life care is strongly encouraged, we understand that difficult decisions may need to be made in a matter of minutes. Regardless of the circumstance, we are here to provide guidance, as well as hospice and euthanasia services. We also offer a selection of urns for cremation.
