Our Veterinary Services
Many of the services we provide are essential for wellness. Spaying and neutering, for instance, protectsyour pet against reproductive cancers, hormonal changes that spark aggression or roaming, and of course unwanted puppies or kittens. Vaccinations are a critical safeguard against such potential killers as rabies and distemper. Lab work & testing are an important part of annual wellness exams for their ability to spot diseases early in their development; they also help us diagnose emergency conditions as quickly and accurately as possible. Even dental care can be considered vital to your pet's overall health, because bacteria that invade teeth and gums can cause tooth loss, gum disease and (in some cases) organ damage.
Avian care isn't offered at every veterinary clinic, which makes Palo Verde Animal Hospital a prime choice for bird lovers. Different types of birds have different dietary and environmental needs, and we are happy to guide you in providing those needs for your feathered friend. We can also perform regular wellness evaluations to catch and correct respiratory ailments and other common problems suffered by birds.
Despite your best efforts to protect your pet's health, sudden illnesses and other emergencies can and do happen. At moments like this, our team at Palo Verde Animal Hospital is ready to help. We maintain a state-of-the-art facility that includes laser surgery, an in-house pharmacy, our own intensive care unit, digital radiology, and other potentially lifesaving devices. Don’t delay if your pet shows signs of a serious problem -- get him to our clinic right away.
Pet boarding is another helpful service you can schedule from Palo Verde Animal Hospital. If you have to travel without your pet, you'll rest easier knowing that he is in a comfortable, well-equipped boarding center among trained veterinary professionals.
