A Full-Service Companion Hospital
We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best. We are solely dedicated to your pet’s care!
Wellness and Preventative Care
We know that it can be a stressful time when your pet needs an operation. We provide soft tissue procedures such as mass removals, abdominal exploratories, and others. Our team will be with you every step of the way.
During the operation, we will be diligent in making sure we cure your pet’s ailment. Our goal is to call you with the good news. Multiple staff members will be on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly in the operating room. Once your pet is out of surgery, we’ll contact you immediately and make sure that you have all of the information to bring your pet home while also ensuring that they’re comfortable and ready to begin healing.
Internal Medicine Consults
Your pet’s health includes having healthy functioning internal organs. These organs can become diseased or damaged due to injury or hereditary factors. Veterinary internal medicine is involved with the diagnosis and treatment of your pet’s internal organs. We offer referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
Frequent dental care is not only a good standard of care for us as humans, but it is critical for our pets as well. Bad breath, difficulty chewing, or a sore mouth are just some of the clinical signs that could indicate a problem. It is important to have routine comprehensive dental assessments of your pet’s teeth in order to plan the best strategies to control, treat and protect them from dental disease. Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions, radiography, and minor oral surgery.
Our in-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, serology, urinalysis, and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
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 carry a full line of prescription diets.
Dietary and Behavioral Counseling
For 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.
For behavioral counseling, we can provide advice regarding the correction of problems such as excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, house soiling, and aggression.
Geriatric and Hospice Care
Our team is here to work with you to ensure your terminally-ill pet stays as comfortable as possible. Geriatric and hospice care aim to meet the physical and mental needs of a pet faced with a life-limiting illness. It begins when a pet is diagnosed with a terminal condition, and the family has decided not to pursue aggressive, curative therapies.
Diagnostics and Therapeutics
A quicker diagnosis leads to quicker treatment. When your pet isn’t feeling its best, we’re able to call upon the information we gather from your pet’s annual visits and figure out what’s “off” from the baseline we’ve built for their health. Once we can determine the issue, our diagnostic and therapeutic teams get right to work to complete your pet’s health needs.
There are some situations where your pet will need general anesthesia or sedation while under our care (dental services, surgical procedures, some anxious or fearful patients for exams or to perform medical diagnostics). 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.
An X-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive diagnostic test that aids in diagnosing and treating medical conditions. Imaging with X-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Our on-site X-ray equipment provides high-quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.
We offer microchip identification. A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed underneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information about your pet—including your name, address, and contact information.
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.
Boarding your pet at Forest Park Animal Clinic means that they will be cared for by a highly-skilled veterinarian team. We provide pet boarding as a service to our clients. All boarders receive personal attention from our caring staff. Pets may be dropped off and picked up during regular business hours Monday through Saturday.
Just like people, pets can experience accidents and injuries that require emergency care. If you have an emergency, please call our main telephone number for instructions and info on after-hour emergencies.
