The most important tool a veterinarian has in the health of your pet is an annual wellness examination. Whether your pet is young, middle aged or a senior citizen, this is where you and the veterinarian come together to make a plan regarding the health and wellness of your pet. This is our opportunity to answer your questions and get to know your pets when they are well, so that we may better treat them when they are not.
As in any other medical treatment at Tualatin Park Veterinary Clinic, we will tailor a vaccination schedule to be most appropriate for your pet’s lifestyle. There is not one treatment plan appropriate for every patient. After thorough examination and discussion with our doctor and team members, we hope to offer you and your pet a vaccination schedule that maintains his wellness while not over vaccinating.
Oral health is an important part of your pets overall wellness. Your pet will be given an oral exam with every physical examination. If broken or loose teeth are noted, tartar and plaque are present, gums are irritated, or other abnormalities are seen we may recommend that your pet return for an anesthetic procedure.
Our clinic is happy to provide Home Again microchips. Lifetime registration is included with the placement of your pet’s microchip. The microchip contains no information other than a unique series of numbers and letters. Every animal clinic and shelter has the capability to scan a patient for a microchip, and the unique code is then entered into a database where your contact information is stored.
Our Clinic is equipped with an in house laboratory and radiology department to evaluate and respond to your pet’s immediate needs and health condition. Services provided in our clinic include digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, ECG, and both blood chemistry panels as well as CBC (complete blood count). We also partner with Idexx Laboratories to provide high quality diagnostic testing, and consultations with clinical pathologists, cardiologists, radiologists, and internal medicine specialists.
As a part of our progressive pain-reducing protocol, your pet may receive a sedative and pain control injection prior to their procedure. They will likely go home with pain medication as well, depending on the procedure. This ensures as comfortable a recovery as possible following surgery. Our clinic takes your pet’s health and safety seriously. Before undergoing an anesthetic procedure we recommend basic diagnostic testing.
Nutrition is an important part of your pet’s health. Our clinic strongly believes that there is no diet that is just right for every pet. We encourage you to feed what you are comfortable with, as long as it is nutritionally complete. If your pet is having any issues that could be resolved by a switch in diet, our doctor may recommend you try something else.
For your convenience, we maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, medicated shampoos,prescription diets, supplements, and parasite preventatives.
