Friendship Animal Hospital – Medical Services
When you own a pet, his health becomes a priority. Finding a trustworthy veterinarian is the first step towards meeting your pet’s veterinary needs. If you live in Pineville or the surrounding areas, bring your kit or pup to Friendship Animal Hospital for the pet care services he needs. Our Pineville veterinarian offers the following medical services to keep your pet in optimal health:
We recommend that your pet have an annual medical exam to confirm that he’s in good health. During a pet exam, we’ll check your pet from nose to tail for signs of irregularities in his health. This includes inspecting your pet’s eyes, nose, ears, mouth, skin, abdomen, and joints. We’ll also listen to your pet’s heart and lungs for signs of cardiovascular or respiratory illness.
Depending on the outcome of your pet’s exam, we may conduct blood, urine, or fecal sample tests to confirm or rule out certain diseases. Our Pineville veterinarian may also order x-rays, ultrasound, or biopsy tests if needed. A comprehensive pet exam will uncover early signs of health conditions so your pet can get prompt treatment. Early treatment can save your pet from unnecessary pain and suffering and help expedite his recovery.
If your pet requires medications for pain or treatments, our in-house pharmacy makes it easy to fulfill his prescriptions. This includes flea, tick and parasite control medications for year-round protection. We also offer quality pet grooming products and dietary supplements to maintain your pet looking and feeling his best.
Microchipping has been proven a safe and effective means of finding your pet in the event he gets lost. A microchip with your pet's ID number is implanted under his skin where it cannot fall out or be removed. This ID number is then registered in a pet database along with your contact details. If your pet gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter or veterinary facility, the staff will scan his chip to obtain the information they need to help him get back home.
After microchipping your pet, be sure to keep your contact details up to date with the registry linked to your pet’s microchip so you can be notified if your missing pet has been found. Microchipping offers an extra layer of protection to the use of a collar and tags for keeping your pet safe.
