Veterinary Hospital Care
We offer a vast variety of pet care from preventative treatment, surgical procedures, spays & neuters. Our vet hospital has state of the art technology to make sure your pet receives proper healthcare.
To keep your pet healthy we recommend certain vaccinations for both cats and dogs. Starting at six to eight weeks of age kittens and puppies should receive their first set of vaccines, then booster visits every three weeks until four months of age.
The average puppy is recommended to receive: three distemper/parvo combos, two bordetella, and one rabies vaccine. Similarly the average kitten is recommended to receive: three feline herpes/calicivirus/panleukopenia combo (“feline distemper”), two feline leukemia, and one rabies vaccine. We also recommend intestinal parasite deworming with each set of vaccinations for both puppies and kittens.
Based on the American Animal Hospital Association and American Association of Feline Practitioners recommendations these puppy and kitten vaccines will then need to be repeated a year after completion of the third set. Once your pet is an adult most vaccines are annual and rabies becomes every three years. Sadly we do see patients afflicted with these ailments and it is hard both emotionally and financially to treat these devastating diseases.
Heartworm preventative is important for every dog to be on. We carry two main types of preventative, a monthly chewable tablet or ProHeart6 injection that lasts for six months. This disease is transferred through mosquitoes and takes months for symptoms to develop. Treatment is expensive, includes long periods of restricted activity, and can be harmful to the pet as well. A heartworm antigen test should be performed beforehand to confirm there is not an active infestation of heartworms. We offer both forms of preventative and the test in house.
As your pet ages annual blood tests are recommended to catch certain health problems early. Doing so allows for prompt treatment, better outcomes, and prolonged life.
Preventative care like vaccinations and annual exams are extremely important for your pets well being. Occasionally, other health problems occur that require a veterinary exam. Whether it is a sudden onset problem or something that slowly changes over time we are here to help you and your pet.
As our pets age manageable problems can develop and if diagnosed early can still allow your pet a long active life. Health problems like arthritis, hormonal diseases, cancers, and kidney or liver diseases typically have a slow onset. Routine health examinations and blood work can catch these problems earlier, so we can provide the best care possible. Our goal is to keep your pet healthy and active for the whole duration of their life
Our in house laboratory diagnostics included but are not limited to: blood chemistry and complete blood count machines, vital signs monitoring equipment, and X-ray machines. These provide information to help us understand what is going on inside your pet. We frequently use local imaging consultants for ultrasound and endoscopy services and other advanced imaging diagnostics. We also utilize outside veterinary laboratories and referral vet hospitals for further diagnostics.
Spaying or neutering not only helps control overpopulation, but also provides many health benefits for your pet; including reduced risk of certain cancers, behavior issues, and unplanned pregnancies.
Our veterinarians take into consideration specific issues to help determine the optimal time to sterilize your pet.
Sterilization surgeries can be performed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We do require current vaccinations before the procedure, and recommend pre-anesthetic blood test, and pain medications for the procedure.
We offer surgical services that go beyond just spaying and neutering. We offer full surgical services for a variety of ailments and emergencies. We can perform a variety of soft tissue, dental, eye, and orthopedic procedures. In cases that necessitate more advanced procedures we work closely with local surgical referral services.
Does your dog or cat have bad breath, tartar build up, missing teeth, excessive drooling, tenderness when chewing, or decreased appetite? Did you know that most dogs and cats over the age of 3 years old have some level of dental disease? Symptoms and severity can range greatly, even in the same mouth. The best way to help your pets combat dental disease is routine wellness and dental examinations, home dental care, and regular professional dental cleanings.
A professional dental cleaning is defined by American Animal Hospital Association and the American Veterinary Dental College as scaling, polishing, and examining the oral cavity under general anesthesia with full intubation. All About Pets uses a combination of ultrasonic scaler and hand instruments to fully clean and examine individual teeth, similar to what your dentists uses. Most dental disease is found under the gumline and may not be detectable on physical or visual examination alone. When suspect teeth or dental lesions are found we use dental x-rays to further evaluate the surrounding tissues that support the teeth. Our dental x-ray machine looks very similar to the ones found in a human dental office; however, our patients are reluctant to keep the films in their mouths while awake so they are typically performed under general anesthesia.
Once a dental problem is identified All About Pets offers a variety of therapeutic options. Some teeth are so diseased that there is little to no supportive tissue and they need to be extracted. Some teeth will have enamel fractures, but the rest of the tooth appears healthy on a dental x-ray; for those teeth we offer enamel sealant and restoration options.
Home dental care is another important step in controlling dental disease. Brushing teeth daily with special, pet specific enzymatic toothpaste, which comes in many appealing flavors for your pet, is the best way to prevent tartar buildup. We carry dental diets that allow the tooth to sink into the kibble and remove plaque. Also we have dental chews and treats that further reduce plaque and oral bacteria which lead to bad breath.
We offer wellness packages for the different life stages of your pet. For kittens and puppies the package includes three exams to ensure proper grow and development, vaccinations, intestinal parasite dewormings, and discounts on spaying or neutering.
For adult pets the package includes unlimited exams, a professional dental cleaning, diagnostic blood test, and 20% off other services. For senior pets the package includes everything the adult package covers as well as diagnostic radiographs.
Services included in above mentioned packages are paid for in the beginning and then utilized over the course a 12-month period. Packages are valid for one year after date of purchase.
One in three pets go missing in their lifetime. Getting your pet microchipped can help them return home. A microchip is a small chip the size of a grain of rice, implanted under the skin of your pet between the shoulders blades. It is not much more stressful than receiving a vaccination.
The individual number associated with that microchip is then registered in HomeAgain’s database with the owner’s name, phone number, and address. The online database can be changed and a photo can be added for no charge. Any shelter or veterinary hospital will scan a found pet and will allow for a happy reunion of you and your pet.
For your convenience we sell Utah County dog licenses. Fees are based on if your pet is alter or intact and for the duration of time the license is valid.
