What to Expect
In your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer our world class service and a state-of-the-art veterinary facility.
Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a total physical exam, with a thorough investigation of your pet from head to tail. Just like his owner, your pet requires routine teeth cleaning to reduce the risk of teeth loss due to decay and neglect. Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual cleaning by your veterinarian may be recommended.
If you are coming to us from another clinic, our staff will work with that clinic to obtain your pet’s medical history. It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests.
Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, your veterinarian will likely suggest a few exams, including a chest X-ray and lab work of blood and urine, before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure he might need an IV drip; antibiotics may be necessary before and after.
If your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience, we may refer you to a veterinary specialist who has completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care. Caledonia Veterinary Clinic has built partnerships with specialized veterinarians in our area in order to provide the best, comprehensive care for your pet.
