Types of Pets Seen
The veterinarians at Faithful Friends Animal Clinic care for dogs and cats. They are comfortable with all of the different breeds.
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted for established patients. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
Along with the preventive surgeries of spaying and neutering, the doctors at Faithful Friends Animal Clinic are experienced surgeons that routinely perform soft tissue and orthopedic surgical procedures. These include fracture repairs, joint surgeries, bladder stone removal, intestinal surgery, traumatic wounds, lacerations, mass removals, and many others. Additionally, if the surgical complexity is beyond the scope of our surgeons (for example: back surgery for a herniated disc, TPLO for large dogs with ruptured cruciate ligaments, or liver shunts) we have a network of surgical specialists to draw from to ensure your pet receives the best and most appropriate care.
One of the hallmarks of the veterinary care we offer is the ability to prevent your pet from being exposed to serious and potentially life threatening diseases. This is achieved not only by establishing a comprehensive vaccination program for your pet, but it also includes ensuring that your pet is being treated for parasites like fleas, roundworms, whipworms, and heartworms. Additionally, we strive to keep you educated about regionally specific diseases like Salmon poisoning where knowledge is your best prevention.
Pets, just like people, can develop arthritis as they age, and maintaining your pet's comfort in all stages of life is one of our goals. To achieve this, Faithful Friends Animal Clinic offers nutritional support products and pain medications. We also provide naturopathic services utilizing therapeutic class 4 lasers and/or acupuncture treatments. By combining all of these modalities, we offer every opportunity for your pet to live a long and active life.
Everyone knows that X-rays are used to check for broken bones, and we do that on a regular basis. Radiology is also an excellent way to assess normal bone structure and development. This is especially important in breeding animals and we coordinate with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals to help our breeders develop pets with solid hips and elbows. Radiology is not limited to looking at bones, this technology is also an excellent tool for looking at cardiac size, checking for early signs of heart and lung disease, and looking for abdominal abnormalities (bladder stones, foreign bodies, and tumors, etc.).
