We're pleased to offer the following services at Caledonia Veterinary Clinic:
Our appointment book is computerized, which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
Did you know that 80% of animals over 3 years of age have some form of dental disease? At Caledonia Veterinary Clinic, we utilize the latest techniques and modern equipment to provide the best dental care for your pet. If one of our veterinarians recommends a dental cleaning for our pet we will provide you with a estimate. Our dentals include preanesthetic bloodwork, iv catheter and fluids, dental x rays, scaling and polishing all teeth and extractions if necessary.
When you bring your pet in for his or her annual visit, a comprehensive exam will be done by one of our veterinarians. The doctor will check your pets ears, eyes, skin, mouth (teeth and gums), heart, lungs, abdomen, and lymph nodes. A complete physical exam is the most important part of preventative care and can reveal the need for further diagnostic testing and evaluation.
VSMT is a manual, non-invasive method for detecting and treating conditions that impact the motion of the spinal vertebrae and extremities in animals. It solves movement conditions in the same way that Chiropractic helps their humans.
Our doctors perform routine surgeries every day. We also offer more complex procedures, such as intestinal foreign body removal, bladder surgery and soft tissue surgery (lump removals and biopsies). We always provide anesthetic monitoring, safe anesthesia, and appropriate pain control. Preanesthetic blood work is offered to all of our patients and required if your pet is over 7 years.
We have an in house lab that provides hematology (CBC), blood chemistry, cytology, urinalysis, milk cultures, and routine parasite testing. We also provide additional laboratory services through outside labs and usually can have results for people in 1-3 days. Some common tests we send out include urine cultures, thyroid testing, histopathology, and equine panels.
Here at Caledonia Veterinary Clinic we have a fully stocked pharmacy for your pets needs. We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, medicated shampoos, flea and tick control products, and heartworm preventatives to help keep your pet free from disease. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.
Veterinary Spinal Manipulation is available for all large animals. We also offer portable X-Ray for all large animals.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as accidental ingestion of rat poison, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
