You can call our office for anything you’re worrying about, no need to worry about a question we can answer. If there is anything we can relate to, is what it’s like to care about an animal’s well being, and the only thing worse is not getting a chance to help.

We manage most of your lab work right here at the clinic.

Pet Wellness Exams
A comprehensive yearly exam can help to monitor the health of your pet, particularly as he/she ages. These exams also play a large part in early detection of conditions where early treatment provides the best options for your pet. We think of this annual exam as a preventative “physical” for your pet. Vaccines, fecal testing, heartworm/tick disease testing, and feline leukemia/FIV testing are usually done at this time. Recently we have added wellness bloodwork packages with yearly exams that allow for even better evaluations of body systems that we cant always see with our physical. We also recommend a strategic deworming with this visit. The teeth and gums of each pet are also checked with recommendations for scheduling dental cleanings if needed. Skin, ears, eyes, and orthopedic issues are addressed as well. These annual exams ensure the best opportunity for a long and healthy life.
We provide a variety of routine dental services for your pet, including cleaning and polishing. We also can help with those non-routine services involving extractions, etc. The dental health of each pet will be graded by your doctor at each exam to determine his/her dental cleaning needs.
We try to educate everyone in good preventative dental care as well. Our client care representatives can help with the many dental hygiene products that are available to find the best option for you and your pet.
This can be one of the most frustrating issues as a pet owner. At Town and Country Veterinary Clinic, we provide thorough skin and coat evaluations with accompanying diagnostics such as skin scraping, cytology, and allergy testing. This allows us to treat varying conditions such as environmental and flea allergies, skin infections, or mites. Treatment might include special diets, shampoos or similar products, and medical management with pharmaceuticals.
Your pet may need medications as part of his/her continued care. We have protocols in place to monitor the extended use of certain medications, efficacy, possible side effects, and possible drug interactions. Our staff will monitor these medications so that you can be informed and comfortable with the drugs prescribed for your pet. They will keep you informed of drug monitoring blood work for the safety of your pet using medications long-term.
Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to:
- Reduce pain
- Reduce Inflammation
- Speed Healing
Laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in which cells called “photo-bio-modulation”, which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation and increased healing speed.
Town and Country Veterinary Clinic recommends that your pet receives dewormings for intestinal parasites at regular intervals throughout the first year, then regular strategic dewormings as an adult pet. We test in-house with each exam but you also have the option of more extensive laboratory fecal testing. Dewormers will be recommended based on those results. You can be assured of the efficacy and safety of these medications when prescribed by your doctor specifically for your pet.
Monthly heartworm preventative is also recommended year-round in the southeast. Most of these preventatives also have intestinal parasite protection. Ask our client care representatives for help in choosing the best options for your family and pet. We also off a 6mo preventative injection(Proheart 6) for heartworms.
The health of your pet can change rapidly as he/she ages, and changes can go unnoticed. Early intervention can lead to a longer and healthier life for you pet. Pets can develop diseases common to senior humans such as diabetes, heart disease, endocrine disease, and cancer. These diseases may go unnoticed in their early stages; therefore, preventative healthcare and regular screening can be very important.
Early detection can help in disease prevention and can minimize suffering. The best approach is to begin senior care at 8 years of age and make sure they receive a physical health exam twice a year. We need to establish baseline blood work, identify existing health problems, monitor any behavioral changes with our cognitive dysfunction behavior form, and may need to adjust his/her diet and nutrition. The doctor will evaluate the general health of your pet and monitor the physical effects of aging. The doctor may recommend routine blood testing, urinalysis, hormone testing, electrocardiograph (ECG), and x-rays.
We are proud to offer an array of surgical services. We first provide your pet with a thorough pre-anesthetic evaluation including an exam, blood work, and electrocardiogram (ECG). The blood work and ECG are required for all surgical patients. We also go a step further and place IV catheters in all surgical patients to provide proper circulation to all vital organs, maintenance of proper blood pressure, and emergency access in case other life saving medications are needed during the procedure.
Surgical procedures include:
- Bladder stone removal
- Wound repair
- Growth/Mass removal
- Foreign body removal
- Feline declaws
- Surgical dental procedures
We work diligently to provide the best surgical services through quality instrumentation, continuing education, training on surgical procedures, and staff teamwork.
