At Paws and Prairie Animal Clinic, we offer a variety of services to care for your pet. If you have any questions or would like more information on how we can care for your pet, please contact us today.
Exams and Consultations
Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Cold Laser Therapy
We now offer treatments with our new K-Laser Cube 4 Performance Therapy Laser. This unit will help heal patients with post-operative incisions and wounds, injuries, early and advanced osteoarthritis conditions, and many other applications!
This dog was seen for treatment of his wounds. After surgery to remove the necrotic tissue, we performed cold laser therapy to the wounded area. We did a total of 6 treatments over the course of 14 days. A cold laser is designed to encourage blood flow to damaged/injured tissue to promote healing and cell rebuilding. Wound healing is just one of the many, MANY benefits of laser therapy. We are extremely pleased at how well and HOW FAST this wound healed. This dog is feeling 100% better and was such a good sport through all of this!
We believe in utilizing the highest level of medical technology, and our surgeons are experienced and highly trained. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands, and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible. We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures.
We offer orthopedic and advanced surgical care with our visiting veterinary surgeon Dr. Calvin Kobluk.
Dental Prophylaxis and Oral Surgery
We strive to aid our patients with the most advanced dental care. Many dogs and cats suffer from oral disease and bad teeth. We offer full dental cleanings and oral surgery to allow our patients to enjoy a happy and fuller life. General anesthesia is required for proper dental cleanings and surgery. We take the utmost care to ensure the safety of our patients during these procedures.
There are a variety of diseases which affect our pets and other animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to. It’s important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.
Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure, and is completely safe. This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.
Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet’s health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems. We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
Our hospital provides a wide variety of in-house diagnostic testing with the most state of the art technology available. We offer digital radiology and ultrasonography. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of care possible, and our diagnostic tools help us do that.
We offer more advanced diagnostics, such as, ultrasound, video otoscopy and advanced care for emergencies.
We offer a fully stocked pharmacy to fill your pet’s prescription needs. Having an on-site pharmacy provides you with a more convenient way to get your pet’s medication. We hope that this will save you time and ultimately enhance your experience with us.
We also have an online pharmacy that will to provide the same medications ordered over the internet and delivered right to your home!
We know that pets come in all shapes and sizes, so we are happy to treat exotic pets. In addition to cats and dogs, we also treat animals like birds, reptiles, and pocket pets like hamsters and guinea pigs. Our team is trained and educated when it comes to caring for exotic pets, so you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands.
Please contact us today if you have any questions or would like to learn more about how we care for your pet.
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to over-feed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.
Pets’ nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for his or her lifestyle.
