Preventative and Wellness Screenings
Why are they recommended?
Check out our NEW video, with Dr. Arneson, explaining why we recommend wellness screenings and how it can effect your pet's life!
Heartland Veterinary Clinic was the first veterinary clinic in the valley to include laser surgery and now has more than five years experience. Laser technology can be employed in virtually any surgical procedure we perform. From the most routine to the most advanced, laser allows us to reduce surgical bleeding, post-operative pain and infection rates. Ask our staff about adding laser surgery to your pet’s procedure.
The total services available at Heartland are too numerous to list. Some of these are:
▪ Full in-house diagnostic laboratory
▪ Specialized testing through numerous outside labs
▪ Radiology, Ultrasound, and Endoscopy
Preventive Health Care
Included here are vaccinations to protect against the most common and deadliest diseases of companion animals. Also, we recommend very important services such as heartworm testing, intestinal parasite screening, feline leukemia testing and feline AIDS testing to ensure the overall health of your companion.
General Health Screening
Routine blood work for any animal and geriatric work-ups for those over 6 years of age are great ways to detect health problems as early as possible. Six month check-ups are also highly recommended to aid in the early detection of health problems. Most problems are more treatable or manageable if caught at an early stage.
Gentle Care and Pain Control
Our philosophy is to provide pain-free health care. We strive to take a preventative approach, intervening in the early stages of painful procedures. All of our surgeries also include a pain management protocol post-operatively.
A permanent identification system can be placed into your pet while you wait. Home Again® microchips are registered to a 24 hour recovery hotline. The unique number in your pet’s chip can be accessed by almost any veterinary practice or shelter nationwide. Home Again also offers additional lost pet services with their annual membership.
