wellness and preventative care
Puppies and Kittens - To ensure the best start in life, puppies and kittens need to complete a series of vaccinations that protect against deadly diseases such as parvo, distemper and rabies. Puppy and kitten visits also give Dr. Benefield and Dr. Stewart an opportunity to provide valuable information on issues such as housebreaking, crate training, nutrition and behavior.
Adult and Senior Pets - Did you know that dogs and cats age approximately 7 years for every year of your life? Dr. Stewart and Dr. Benefield recommend complete head-to-toe examinations twice yearly. These exams give our doctors the opportunity to find problems, possibly before your pet shows signs of illness. Preventative labwork is also an important part of both our midyear and our annual examinations. This labwork screens your pet's internal organ functions and gives our doctors valuable information about your pet's health. Early detection can help your pet live longer!
We apply many of the same surgical and anesthetic standards as our human counterparts. A pre-anesthetic examination and diagnostic blood panel are performed prior to surgical procedures. We use sterile surgical supplies and surgical technique. Our patients are monitored while under anesthesia and receive continuous pain medication to keep them comfortable before, during and after the procedure. In addition to routine spaying, neutering and declawing, our veterinarians are also experienced in many other types of procedures including surgery of the skin, eyes, ears, mouth, intestinal tract and liver. We also perform orthopedic procedures and emergency surgical procedures if needed.
Comprehensive medical care
In addition to wellness and preventative care visits, our doctors are available to see sick patients and emergencies as needed. Please call us at 334-277-1101 as soon as you are aware of a problem with your pet so that we can be prepared for your arrival.
When you go away, let your pet come play with us! We offer a comfortable place for your pet to stay in our 4'x6' kennels with a raised orthopedic floor. All of our kennels are indoors in a temperature controlled environment. We provide Royal Canin's Gastrointestinal Low Fat food, or you may bring your pet's own food. Our boarders are walked individually three times daily. They may also be enrolled in our doggy daycare so they can play all day while you are away! For your convenience, we offer Sunday pick-up from 4:00-5:00pm
**For the safety of all of our patients, boarding pets must be current on their vaccinations and are checked for fleas upon admission.
Veterinary diagnostics are needed when a simple examination is not enough to diagnose your pet. Our state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment, ultrasound and full in-house laboratory give our doctors the ability to quickly and accurately obtain precise images and important diagnostic information. This helps Dr. Benefield and Dr. Stewart make a diagnosis so they can give you the best treatment plan for your pet.
Are you worried about the long days your pets spend alone at home while you are working? Is your dog too hyperactive when you get home? Bring them to us!! Our doggy daycare lets your pet stay active and stimulated while you are away at work. We open at 6:30am for you to conveniently be able to drop your dog off on your way to work. When you pick your pet after work, they will be ready for rest and relaxation with you!
