In your search for a Greeley, CO veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service.

Your pet's annual exam will include a total physical exam, with a thorough investigation of your pet from nose to tail. We will check eyes, ears, nose, teeth and gums, skin and coat, legs and paws, heart and lungs, abdomen, and under the tail. 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 in order. Like you, your pet can lose their teeth due to decay and neglect. Tooth aches are not pleasant for anyone.
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. Bring this notebook when you come to visit us. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests. Also, if you need to change veterinarians, it's good to have this journal to provide a complete medical history.
We have 4 veterinarians at our hospital to provide you with several personality options. All our veterinarians are calm, compassionate and willing to explain all the procedures your pet may undergo. Try to find which veterinarian both you and your pet feel comfortable with, this will make exams, medical proceedures and surgery more comfortable for everyone. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, your veterinarian will possibly suggest a few exams, potentially including a chest X-ray and/or lab work of blood and urine before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure IV fluid therapy might be indicated. Antibiotics and pain medication may be necessary before and after the procedure.
Our veterinarians may refer you to a specialist to ensure the best care for your pet. These veterinarians have completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care if your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience.
