At Osterville Veterinary Clinic, we offer a variety of services to care for your pet. If you have any questions or would like more information on how we can care for your pet, please contact us today.
Exams and Consultations
Physical examinations are the cornerstone of preventative medicine. We recommend annual wellness examinations for our younger pets, with some of our geriatric patients requiring more frequent checkups. During an examination our veterinarian will check your pet’s teeth, oral cavity and ears. They will auscult the heart and lungs, and feel for any abnormal lumps or growths. They will also palpate the limbs and joints to evaluate for signs of arthritis. During an exam the veterinarian may suggest routine bloodwork that can aide in diagnosing conditions before they become more serious. Annual fecal tests for internal parasites are recommended for any animal that goes outdoors.
Exams are a good time to communicate and discuss behavioral or other concerns you may have about your pet. With open communication together we can formulate a health plan that addresses your pets individual needs.
Vaccines and Preventative Medicine
Vaccinations are part of the wellness program at Osterville Veterinary Clinic. We use vaccination guidelines based on the most current information available, as well as what is provided by the AVMA. We realize that not every pet requires the same vaccinations or the same frequency of vaccination. Using the above guidelines the veterinarian will work with you to establish a protocol for your pet that is safe and effective.
Our veterinarians will also offer a variety of medications to repel heartworm, intestinal parasites and fleas and ticks. We feel in this region we live in, it is important to stay in tune with the latest preventative measures to keep your pet and your family healthy.
Osterville Veterinary Clinic is equipped with a state-of-the-art, in-house laboratory capable of measuring numerous laboratory values, with results often available in a few minutes. Trained, experienced technicians staff our laboratory and they are capable of interpreting your pet’s laboratory results quickly and accurately. Complete blood counts, blood chemistry profiles, urinalysis, fecal exams and heartworm tests are commonly performed in our laboratory. We have the highest quality laboratory instruments in order to provide the best possible care for your pet.
We offer a fully stocked pharmacy to fill your pet’s prescription needs. Having an on-site pharmacy provides you with a more convenient way to get your pet’s medication. We hope that this will save you time and ultimately enhance your experience with us.
