Pet Preventative Care

Our veterinarians feel that preventative care is the hallmark of good health and a long life. Preventative care visits are scheduled with the same veterinarian on a regular basis. We feel this provides the best long-term care as it gives our doctors an opportunity to really get to know your pet and better note small changes in their health.

Senior Pet Care

Senior pets have special needs as they age. The best way to help protect your pet as he or she ages is to understand the aging process in pets. We understand that process and can help you help your pet.

Sick Pet Care

If your pet is sick, we want to see them as soon as possible. We reserve same-day sick appointments for our patients so there is always room to see your pet if they are sick. Less urgent sick visits can often be scheduled with your pet’s regular veterinarian at a time that is convenient for you.

Pet Ultrasound

Ultrasonography is a completely non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases. Ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves to create a picture of what is inside your pet’s body.

Pet Surgery

When your pet needs surgery we understand that can be a stressful time. We want to make the procedure as easy on your pet as possible and the post-operative care easy on their owners. We start all of our surgeries or anesthetic procedures with a pre-anesthetic exam.

Pet Dentistry

Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health.

Pet Cold Laser Therapy

The cold laser uses photochemical (not thermal) light therapy to stimulate cell growth. This stimulation of cell growth decreases inflammation which alleviates pain, provides rapid wound healing and tissue repair. It is a non-invasive treatment process for your pet.

Pet Boarding & Daycare

Here at Apalachee River Animal Hospital, your pets aren’t just boarding! Dogs and cats enjoy their own vacations here at our boarding facilities. While you are away, your pets are supervised by our trained kennel attendants. Our staff members monitor all aspects of your pet’s care and well-being while they stay with us. In the event that changes occur or should medical concerns arise, our veterinarians are available to offer immediate medical care.
