Our Services

Behavioral Counseling

During behavior consultations we will evaluate the behavior concerns you have with your pet. After you have provided a detailed history of your pet, we will discuss why your pet is potentially engaging in these behaviors and tailor a treatment plan to address your concerns. We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression.

Dentistry

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have dental disease by the age of 3. Dental disease can be very uncomfortable for pets and the longer it is left untreated, the more complicated and expensive it becomes to treat. At Spring Valley Veterinary Clinic, we recommend you have your pet’s teeth examined at least once a year to ensure your pet is not demonstrating symptoms of periodontal disease.

If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms, please make an appointment immediately:

  • Yellow or brown buildup (tartar) on the teeth
  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Changes in eating or chewing habits
  • Pawing at the face
  • Loose teeth
  • Depression

Proper dental care is one of the easiest ways to protect your pet’s health and prevent issues with your pet’s heart, liver and kidneys, and more. Schedule an oral exam to prevent irreversible periodontal disease, tooth loss, and possibly expensive oral surgery.

Dietary Counseling

Proper nutrition is one of the easiest ways to keep your pet healthy. Feeding your pet the correct diet has an impact on your pet’s length and quality of life. At Spring Valley Veterinary Clinic, we offer individualized nutrition counseling and customize a recommendation for your unique pet.

Individualized Flea Control Program

We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas in your house, in your yard and on your pet.

Laboratory

At Spring Valley Veterinary Clinic, we have state-of-the art laboratory and diagnostic equipment that allows us to do many lab tests onsite. Labs are essential to detect disease and underlying causes of illness in your pet. We may recommend lab work for a variety of reasons, some common tests include complete blood counts, urinalysis and chemistry panels.

Microchipping

Microchipping is the most effective means of identification for your pet. Similar to vaccinations, microchipping is safe, quick and causes little pain. We always recommend an ID tag be attached to your pet’s collar, but the microchip will serve as an extra layer of protection if an accident does occur. Most veterinary hospitals and shelters are equipped with a handheld microchip scanner that can be used to check for a chip. If the pet has one, it will transmit its ID number to the scanner via a low-frequency radio wave. From there, they can retrieve the pet owner’s contact information from the manufacturer and call the owner.

Pharmacy

We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.

Radiology

Digital radiology allows us to examine your pet’s internal systems to screen for fractures and sprains, foreign objects, abnormalities within the organs, and even certain types of cancer. Digital X-ray provides quick results so we can treat your pet as soon as possible and speed up their recovery.

Surgical Services

Spring Valley Veterinary Clinic is equipped to perform a variety of surgical services, including spays & neuters, caesareans, tumor & lump removals, wound stitches, intestinal obstructions, and more. Our skilled veterinarians use the safest methods possible and utilize both general and local anesthesia to control pain during the operation. Using our state-of-the-art equipment, we will not only ensure your pet’s medical needs are addressed efficiently and effectively but will also make sure they feel calm and cared for throughout the entirety of the prep, procedure, and recovery process.

We also offer laser surgery with our CO2 laser. Laser surgery is a very precise and versatile method for soft tissue procedures. This technique has numerous benefits including less bleeding, pain, risk of infection and quicker recovery time. Call us for more information and to see if your pet may be a good candidate for this.

Vaccinations and Parasite Prevention

Vaccinations are an essential part of your pet’s health care plan starting from the time they are very young. We start puppy and kitten vaccinations between 6 and 12 weeks of age and require boosters throughout their life.

Many pet parasites can infect people in addition to animals, which means parasite prevention is important for the health of your pet and your family. Animals are susceptible to a variety of parasites that can be easily avoided with parasite preventative.

Vaccinations and preventative care give your pets the best chance to avoid sickness and disease. At Spring Valley Veterinary Clinic, we create a personalized plan to meet the exact needs of your pet.

Wellness Care

Prevention is key to your pet’s healthcare no matter what their size, breed or age. Routine wellness exams are extremely important to maintain your pet’s wellbeing and detect any medical issues before they progress. During your pet’s wellness exam, we will assess:

  • Overall Body Condition
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Nose
  • Mouth
  • Throat
  • Heart and Lungs
  • Abdominal Organs
  • Musculoskeletal System
  • Neurologic System
  • Urogenital System
  • Lymph Nodes
  • Skin/Coat

If any areas of concern are identified during your pet’s exam, we will develop a treatment plan together.

Laser Therapy Treatment

Laser therapy treatment is an effective method for reducing pain and promoting healing in your pet. Laser therapy is a painless, FDA-approved medical procedure that uses low-level lasers to stimulate the natural healing capabilities of the body’s cells. This treatment promotes healing on a cellular level as well as decreasing inflammation after surgery, injury or areas of the body affected by chronic illnesses such as arthritis or acute conditions such as otitis. It can also be used to increase joint mobility and relieve the aches and pains common to geriatric pets. If you believe your pet is in pain, give us a call to discuss if they would be a good candidate for laser treatment!
