Examination and Preventative Health
We strive for the best preventative medicine in an effort to prolong the health of your beloved pet. This includes a preventative vaccine schedule, heartworm and intestinal parasite protocol tailored to meet to every pet’s individual needs. Every animal has its own unique lifestyle. Our job is to protect your pet and keep it healthy in it’s everyday life. We offer puppy series vaccines, DHPP+L4 adult vaccines, and 1 year and 3 year rabies vaccines for our canine patients. We offer a full line of feline vaccines as well.
Oral health is important to our animals. Bad breath is a sign of infection in the mouth of your pet. This infection can do much more than cause stinky breath. It can spread to vital organs such as the heart, liver, lungs and kidneys as this bacteria can be absorbed into bloodstream after being swallowed. This can simply be avoided with periodic teeth cleanings.
Animal Practice of Marion provides a wide variety of surgical services. We strongly promote the spaying and neutering of pets in an effort to control the pet population. View and print surgery consent form here.
There are times our pets need a visit from the vet and for some it is easier or necessary to have the pet seen in the home. Afternoon house-calls for yearly check ups, sick pet or emergency care are available Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Pets get sick and it isn’t always during normal business hours. You will be able to call the clinic to reach Dr. Call for your animal’s after hour needs.
