Wickenburg Veterinary Services

We are here for your pet’s every need.

Our Veterinary
Services

At Wickenburg Veterinary Clinic, we offer a number of veterinary services for the needs of your pet. From puppies and kittens to senior pets and from wellness exams to surgery, we are here for your pet’s every need and throughout every life stage.

Pet Wellness Exams

We’re here for all stages of your pet’s life. From the early days to the golden years, the team at Wickenburg Veterinary Clinic will be there to provide customized care based on your pet’s needs.

We recommend annual wellness visits for all young, healthy pets. Our doctor performs a complete physical exam at these visits with an emphasis on early recognition of disease. Many diseases, when diagnosed early, can either be cured or managed with long-term therapies. Vaccinations are also given at these examinations if the pet’s health is considered normal.

For senior pets and pets with chronic illnesses, we recommend wellness exams every six months. Some long-term medications require specific blood level tests every six-to-12 months. Thus we may re-check blood profiles at this visit to see if medications have affected organ function. If the damage is found early, it can often be slowed or even reversed.

Senior pets often have special needs as well that will be addressed during wellness visits. We are always happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your old friend.

Pet Vaccinations

Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper pet vaccinations. From your first visit to Wickenburg Veterinary Clinic, we’ll make sure your pet is up-to-date on their vaccines and put on a schedule that makes sure they continue to stay up-to-date.

Depending on your pet’s age, medical history, lifestyle, and environment, our veterinarian will discuss the best course of action in regard to your pet’s vaccine schedule. You can bring your cat or dog in as early as eight weeks for his or her first round of vaccines.

The core vaccines for cats include panleukopenia (feline distemper), feline herpesvirus type I, feline calicivirus, and rabies. Depending on your pet’s lifestyle, you may also want to get your cat vaccinated for feline leukemia virus. During your feline’s visit, we’ll discuss his/her lifestyle and determine which vaccines he or she should have.

Core vaccinations for dogs include Canine Distemper, Parvovirus, Hepatitis, and Rabies. We’ll discuss your dog’s risk and determine if he or she should also receive the Canine Influenza, Leptospira bacteria, and/or Lyme vaccine, depending on your dog’s social life.

Pet Dental Care

Recent studies have shown that 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. Bad breath, plaque build-up, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and decreased appetite are signs that your pet’s teeth may require veterinary attention.

All pets have their teeth and gums examined by our doctor at their routine wellness visits. For dogs and cats of all ages, our Veterinarian also performs routine dental cleanings which include high-speed ultrasonic cleaning, polishing, and extractions.

Periodontal disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats with approximately 85% having some form of this disease. Pets with periodontal disease may experience pain, bad breath, and eventual tooth loss. This chronic infection can spread to the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys which makes routine dentistry vital in preventing periodontal disease. Schedule a dental exam with us today!

Veterinary Radiology

When we need to figure out what’s wrong with your pet, we routinely use x-rays to help identify the cause of the problem rule out possible problems, or provide a list of possible causes. We may also use x-rays during a wellness exam to diagnose potential problems before they become serious.

X-rays provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). We use radiology alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools. Interpretation of radiographs requires great skill on the part of the veterinarian.

We offer digital radiology (x-rays that are captured digitally rather than on film). This technology allows us to provide you with a quicker diagnosis for your pet. Plus, it uses less radiation than traditional x-rays.

Pet Nutritional Counseling

Nutrition plays a critical role in the overall health and well-being of your pet. Your pet’s nutritional needs change with age and activity level. Specially formulated diets can assist in the management of various medical conditions like kidney disease, diabetes, and heart disease. Work closely with your veterinarian to find the right food and the right intake amount for your pet. Every pet is unique, and the goal is to find what works best for each individual pet.

Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to overfeed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.

A pet’s nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to ensure your pet’s needs are being met is to develop a diet specifically for them and their lifestyle. At Wickenburg Veterinary Clinic, we offer nutritional counseling to answer any questions you may have about your pet’s diet.

Pet Boarding

It’s difficult to imagine leaving your beloved pet for any length of time — and even harder to spend your time away worrying about your pet’s welfare. But when a hospitalization, family reunion, business trip, or other endeavor calls, you may have no choice but to leave your pet in someone else’s care for a while.

The first step in booking a boarding stay at our veterinary clinic is making sure your pet is ready to spend some quality time among humans and other animals. If your pet needs updates of any core vaccinations or new vaccinations against communicable diseases such as kennel cough or rabies, we are able to administer those vaccines during your pet’s stay. If your pet needs special medical care, let us know so we can make your pet’s stay as comfortable as possible. Feel free to bring his favorite blanket or toy so we can make him feel right at home. During busy travel seasons, make these arrangements and book your pet’s stay as far ahead of time as possible.

We offer boarding for all situations, whether you just need your pet watched for the day or overnight, or need a longer stay for a vacation, we are here for you. Please call us for any inquiries or to schedule a boarding stay with us.

Pet Microchipping

At Wickenburg Veterinary Clinic, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.

But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s skin. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.

A microchip is a tiny device that contains unique identifying information about a pet. It is approximately the size of a grain of rice and contains a code that corresponds to the contact information of the pet owner. This allows missing cats and dogs to be returned to their rightful home as quickly as possible.

Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.
