Services

Our pets are like family, and as such, it is important they visit the doctor at least once per year. Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, OVMC stresses the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services: Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.

Surgical Services: Our surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.

Anesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.

Internal medicine consults: We offer in-hospital referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.

Radiology Services: Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of your pet.

Dentistry: Our comprehensive dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, digital dental radiology, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery. During February, June and October of every year, we have a promotion in which you get 20% off the total cost of your pet's dental cleaning! Please call our office in advance as availability is limited during promotion month.

Laboratory: Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.

Permanent identification: We offer microchip implantation for identification. This microchip is placed under your pet's skin, which contains an identification number unique to your pet. This number can be found with a microchip scanner which many veterinary facilities and shelters have. The microchip  will be registered to your contact information and allow anyone who scans your lost pet to reunite them with you and your family.

Pharmacy: We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also offer an on-line pharmacy through a link on our home page.

Individualized Flea Control Programs: 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.

Dietary Counseling: We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance. We carry a wide variety of Royal Canin prescription diets as well.

Behavioral Counseling: We can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling and aggression.

Emergency Care: Please contact VCA East Bay Veterinary Emergency in Antioch for local, after-hours emergency care.
