MORE ABOUT OUR SEVICES
At Springhill Animal clinic, we make the health of your pet our priority. We realize that veterinary medicine is integral in this process, therefore we heavily emphasize the importance of preventative care during the puppy and kitten stages. This is a critical period for your pet as the immune, and all other systems, are still developing. Young animals are prone to having significant worm burdens; we routinely deworm all pediatric animals. Also, all pediatric animals are given a series of vaccinations. With kittens, we administer a feline distemper and leukemia combination vaccine as a series of two shots. Puppies get a series of three distemper/parvovirus vaccines. Each animal is given a thorough examination at each visit.
Ongoing yearly preventative care is ideal and recommended for all adult animals. We focus on all aspects of the body, from the skin to internal functions. We are more than willing to answer any questions you have on a variety of topics, including vaccinations, dewormings, and any problems your animal might have. Maintenance is key to ongoing health.
Senior care is vitally important for your aging pet. Older animals can have a wide array of issues, from cognitive problems to arthritis. It is crucial that we maintain a relationship with your pet during this time especially, so that we can ensure your pet has the best care possible. In the golden years, we take quality of life issues very seriously and provide the animal with the essential tools to have a comfortable experience no only in our office, but at home as well.
At Springhill Animal Clinic, we understand the importance of a comprehensive oral care program. We recommend beginning at-home care at every puppy or kitten exam. We offer a variety of products to assist you in making this an easy experience for both you and your pet. Poor dental health can not only make your pet’s kisses a nightmare, it can seriously affect your pets overall health. It can cause lethargy, anorexia, chewing on only one side, poor cardiac health, coughing, systemic infection, and even death. We can perform oral cleanings, extractions, antibiotic therapy and pain management. We are here as a resource and are willing to assist in any way possible.
We use the Companion Therapy Laser to treat minor injuries and for pain management. It is basically a surgery free, drug free and noninvasive treatment to reduce pain and inflammation and increase the speed of healing with any type of wound or surgical incisions. It uses a beam of laser light to penetrate tissue without damaging it and to stimulate a biological response to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation in most areas of the body as well as speed healing. The pet may feel a slight warm feeling in the area being treated and most treatments take only a matter of minutes to complete.
We recommend microchip identification for your pet, so if you pet is lost and is found, a veterinary hospital, humane society or animal shelter can scan the chip and recover your information. We have partnered with the American Kennel Club to provide easy and affordable microchips for your pets.
Here at Springhill Animal Clinic, we are able to perform a variety of diagnostic services for your pet. We perform many of these diagnostic services in-house, and to keep costs down – the diagnostic work we send out, is sent to the trusted ANTECH Diagnostics Lab. Our diagnostics testing includes: heartworm, intestinal parasite, feline leukemia, and allergy. We also perform diagnostics for: thyroid, urinalysis, and other comprehensive blood screenings.
