At Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital, our doctors, technicians, and staff are eager to assist with all of your pet and horse care needs. We offer high standards of progressive medicine, advanced surgery, and compassionate care, with appointments available both at our welcoming hospital facility and at your house or farm.
Dogs and cats age much faster than people. Significant changes can happen in a short time. Here at Fox Creek, we know that routine care allows us to not only catch diseases early, but sometimes prevent them altogether. We provide annual wellness exams and vaccinations, compassionate care for pets of all ages and even microchipping to ensure the safety of your pet.
Proper diagnostics are critical to proper care. By utilizing state-of-the-art technology, we are able to determine the cause of most problems and prescribe the best method of treatment. Best of all, we provide this service within our hospitals – eliminating the need to refer you to another location.
We are equipped to provide:
- In-House and Reference Laboratories
- Digital Radiology and Imaging
- Telemedicine – Immediate review of imaging and ECGs by board certified radiologists and cardiologists
- Advanced in-house diagnostics including radiology, ultrasonography and lab work
The importance of vaccinating your dog or cat cannot be overstated. Many of the diseases we vaccinate against can be life-threatening even with dedicated treatment, so an ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound (or more) of cure! Some diseases, such as rabies or leptospirosis, can even be transmitted from pets to people, so making the choice to vaccinate your animal can help protect your entire family’s health, two-legged and four.
Emergencies happen, and we’re here to help. Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital is fully-equipped to handle almost every urgent care need you might have, providing state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to determine the problem and experienced doctors and staff to treat it – all in a quick, efficient and compassionate manner. Best of all, if you’re in need of urgent care during business hours, we can often fit you into our schedule the same day you call.
Don’t wait for hours in a parking lot when your pet is in pain. Call us first, and we’ll do our very best to help.
Dental disease is one of the most common diseases we see in dogs and cats. Tartar and plaque can quickly lead to health issues such as kidney, liver and heart disease. Oral exams are an important part of a pet’s annual check up, allowing the doctor to personalize the necessary dental care. We offer advanced dentistry procedures as well as routine dental cleanings and consultations.
Skin disorders can be quite common in many animals, but often go untreated (fur hides a lot). At Fox Creek, we offer many services to help diagnose and alleviate many conditions, including:
- Allergy Testing and Treatments
- External Parasite Control
- Infectious Disease Treatment
- Auto immune and Endocrine Disorders
- In-house and reference lab testing
Setting your furry family member up for a life of success starts with appropriate care early on. We recommend having a full physical examination performed as soon as you bring your little one home to ensure that your new pet is healthy.
We recognize the unique needs of animals throughout various stages of their lives, including their golden years. Thanks to better care, pets are living longer now than they ever have before but as pets get older, they need extra care and attention. We strive to provide the best senior care in order to maximize your pet’s quality of life.
If you are traveling with your pet, there may be additional certificates, vaccines, testing or medications required by your destination state or country. Your pet is required to have a valid rabies certificate and may require a microchip.
At Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital, we utilize IDEXX diagnostic laboratories for the majority of our blood analysis. IDEXX offers a wide array of tests, ranging from routine health screening to endocrine testing and infectious disease titers. Depending on the test, results can be available later in the day, or–for more specialized, mail-out tests–within several business days.
Because we’re an AAHA-accredited animal hospital, we practice the highest standard of surgical care and safety at all times. Regardless of the size and scope of your pet’s surgical procedure, their safety always comes first.
We offer general and specialized surgical services at all of our locations, including:
- Spaying and Neutering
- Dental surgery
- Mass removal
- Laceration Repair
- Advanced orthopedics
- Ophthalmic surgery
Although heart problems are found more often in older pets, these conditions can affect pets at any age. Heart disease is usually a life-threatening condition, but early diagnosis and appropriate therapy can extend your pet’s life.
We can discover many heart problems during a physical exam. Additional tests, such as an electrocardiogram (ECG), radiographs (x-rays), and ultrasounds, are usually needed to accurately identify the cause of the heart disease or failure.
If caught soon enough, some forms of heart disease can be cured.
For those patients who find traveling to the hospital difficult or stressful we offer house calls. This can be convenient for large breed dogs, geriatric patients, or anxious pets. This service also includes compassionate in home euthanasia. So your pet can be surrounded by the comforts of home and family.
We offer services for small and exotic animals including but not limited to guinea pigs, rabbits, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, rodents, and other pocket pets.
Cold laser uses a beam of light to stimulate damaged cells to produce more energy. This allows cellular function to increase, allowing more rapid absorption of nutrients, elimination of wastes, and cell reproduction. The new cellular activity speeds up healing and recovery by alleviating pain and inflammation, reducing swelling, and increasing circulation.
If you have ever lost a pet, no matter how briefly, you know how terrifying it can be. You worry about your pet’s whereabouts and whether he or she will ever be returned to you. One of the best ways to help maximize your chances of being reunited is to have your animal microchipped.
Veterinary technicians regularly check on the pets, and our kennel staff monitors the boarding area. In addition, we can arrange for one of our veterinary team members to provide overnight monitoring for senior pets or those with certain health issues.
Our hospitalized patients are cared for by our trained medical staff. Overnight care is available when necessary.
Physical rehabilitation for veterinary patients expedites return to normal function, pain relief, and encouragement of optimal health for patients suffering from orthopedic, neurologic, and chronic diseases.
