At Paws Around Town Mobile Veterinary Hospital, we can care for:
Routine physical examination is a top priority for keeping your pet healthy and maximizing their lifespan. Physical examinations should be performed yearly for young adults and more often for pediatric pets and older pets. Routine physicals can identify problems early and allow for treatment or cure of diseases that might otherwise become advanced and untreatable. Pets with illnesses should be examined often, according to the doctor's recommendations.
We provide routine vaccinations for major canine and feline diseases.
Our in-house laboratory enables us to provide serum chemistries, viral testing, heartworm testing, urinalysis, parasite testing, and more. We also work with national laboratories for other specialized testing and consultation. Routine lab testing, like routine physical exams, helps to detect and treat problems early to keep your pet healthier and living a longer happier life.
On-site x-ray equipment helps us to diagnose internal problems quickly. Additionally, we consult with a board-certified radiologist when needed, who can also perform ultrasound examinations when indicated.
We utilize the latest anesthetic agents to help ensure the safest possible anesthesia and quick recovery. Your pet's vital signs are monitored continuously by our pet nurse as well as electronic monitoring devices.
Our on-board surgery suite allows us to provide a wide variety of routine and other surgeries. However, for some advanced procedures we may refer you to a traditional hospital or a specialty center.
Our dental services include routine dental cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery.Microchipping
We offer implantation of permanent microchip identification devices. This can be done at any time during a pet's lifetime during any visit, however we recommend the best time to do this is when your puppy or kitten is being spayed or neutered.
Treatment of Illness
We can diagnose and treat virtually any illness just as in a traditional animal hospital. However, critical cases that require long-term hospitalization, specialized procedures, and/or 24 hour ICU care will be referred to an appropriate traditional hosptial, specialty center or emergency clinic.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive, non-drug treatment option for treating a variety of acute and chronic inflammatory conditions. It can be used in addition to or in some cases in place of traditional treatment. Visit our Laser Therapy page to learn more!
We carry all common medications on board with us as well as offer on-line ordering and home delivery (through this website) of those same medications, as well as others we may not carry. This allows you to easily order refills whenever you need them or order something we don't routinely carry (with our approval), and those items will be delivered right to your home. (Please visit the Pharmacy/Home Delivery section of this website to view everything we offer.) *Please note that as required by law in order for us to prescribe medication we must have examined your pet within the previous 12 months.
We provide guidance for your pet's nutritional needs for all stages of life, as well as prescription diets for certain medical conditions.
Basic Behavioral Counseling
We offer advice for puppy training and common behavioral issues. We can recommend trainers or behaviorists for serious aggression or other issues.
Senior Pet Care
Older pets require more frequent check-ups and laboratory monitoring to help keep them healthy and feeling good. We will make specific recommendations for blood tests, x-rays, diet, and medications for your older pet depending on age and condition.
Hospice Care/In-home Euthanasia
We can provide consultation to help you make the end of your pet's life as comfortable as possible. And when it is time to say good-bye to your faithful companion, we offer compassionate euthansia service in the privacy of your home where your pet can be surrounded by comfortable, familiar surroundings and loved ones.
