Wellness Examinations & Vaccines
We believe in preventative medicine as the best approach to keeping our patients healthy. This includes annual wellness examinations, vaccinations on a yearly or every three-year basis, external and internal parasite prevention, and dietary management. Our doctor will help determine what vaccinations are appropriate according to you and your pet’s needs. We will discuss in detail what your options are to help you make the best possible health decisions for your pet. We do have great Puppy and Kitten Packages available if you’ve just gotten a new family member.
Can’t remember how your pet can get heartworm disease? Does your pet have fleas and you just don’t know what to do? What do ticks look like anyway? What should you do if you see worms-yuk! Our helpful and educated staff can help you with any questions you may have about the products your pet needs. From heartworm disease to internal parasite control, we will help you get your pet on the road to great health. We carry a full line of products to keep your pet free from parasites like heartworm, intestinal worms, ticks, and fleas.
Sometimes pets develop conditions requiring a food change, from the type you would find at the local pet store to a prescription diet food only found at a veterinarian’s office. Your pet’s veterinarian will help you make the right decision should his/her dietary needs change. AMCH carries Hill’s Prescription Diet foods and the Purina Veterinary Diets. Please call us if you are looking for something specific for your pet. Special orders can be made for your specific needs.
Geriatric Care Programs
We encourage comprehensive health screenings and early detection programs for aging pets. A geriatric consultation can determine what arthritis medications, if any, would be best suited for your older pet. Our doctors can provide a variety of services, blood work and/or dietary management your older pet needs for continued happiness. This is especially pertinent for those pets with joint and skeletal issues who may need our help with pain management.
We are strong believers in the importance and life-saving benefits of microchips! If your pet isn’t microchipped already; what are you waiting for?
Microchips are a safe, permanent means of identification. Unlike collars and tags that can slip away, or be taken off, a microchip stays with your pet forever. This is particular importance to us in fire, earthquake and flood areas. Microchips help to locate and re –home lost pets! We provide this service at AMCH without an appointment, any time during our office hours. Our pets are microchipped with HomeAgain Microchips & we take care of mailing all of the forms in for you!
