All pets are important to us. We treat dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, birds, reptiles and "pocket pets", such as mice, hamsters and hedgehogs.
We're pleased to offer the following services at Southside Animal Hospital
Your pet's health is our priority. It is important to get your new family member off to a good start. We offer a very thorough physical exam, parasite checks, as well as any needed vaccinations. We are here to answer your questions and to help support the lifelong health and happiness of your animal friend.
We are a full service hospital providing preventative health care as well as treatment of illness or injuries. We take special care to make an accurate, educated diagnosis. This is a critical step in successful treatment.
We will attempt to explain your pet's condition to you in a clear, understandable manner. You will be presented various treatment options and given an opportunity to have your questions answered. We believe you should be allowed to make an informed decision regarding the care of your pet.
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
