Early detection of health problems can allow for prompt treatment. At least once and perhaps twice a year, your pet needs a complete physical exam. Remember, your pet's lifespan is shorter than ours and a lot can happen in 12 months. Dr. Allen is an accredited veterinarian with the USDA and can issue interstate as well as international health certificates.
Dog Exam Room
We use the highest quality vaccines in order to protect your pet against contagious diseases. Our computerized reminder system will notify you when your pet is due for immunizations, tests or treatments.
Microchip implantation is an advanced pet-recovery system that could save your pet from being lost forever. A tiny, easily injected microchip identifies your pet for life, plus a nationwide recovery program speeds your lost pet's return.
For fast clinical services and pre-anesthetic testing, numerous tests are run in our hospital, including blood and urine analysis, fecal testing, as well as tests for feline leukemia virus and canine heatworm. Pre-anesthetic testing helps us evaluate your pet's health up front, so we can avoid problems and find any hidden health conditions that could put your pet at risk during anesthesia. These tests provide baseline levels for your pet and become part of his or her medical record for future reference. For more extensive testing, we use the overnight service of Idexx Laboratory in Dallas.
We have a complete radiographic facility for taking and developing X-rays so that Dr. Allen and our clients can receive x-ray results sooner - especially important in emergency cases.
Good dental care is as important for your pet as it is for you. Proper dental care not only prevents bad breath and periodontal disease but also prevents infection spreading through the blood stream to your pet's liver, kidneys and heart. Dental Services that we provide include: Dental Prophylactic Cleaning and Polishing, Extractions, Periodontal Care/Surgery and Puppy/Kitten Dental Evaluations
Our facilities at Companion Animal Hospital utilize the highest standards of sterility and equipment to ensure your pet receives the best care possible. Our hospital is well-equipped to perform most minor and major surgical procedures from spays and neuters to more complicated emergency, orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries. To speed up the check-in process, download and print out the Surgery Aurthorization Sheet. Please read it and bring it with you when you drop off your pet for surgery.
