Vaccinations & Wellness

 

The key to prevention of disease or illness, a comprehensive physical examination is the first-and most important-step you as an owner can take to ensure your pet's well-being and long-term health.

Your Marshall Animal Clinic veterinarians will pay special attention to a host of important, health-related items, including: the development of your animal's teeth and enamel; abnormalities of the eyes; the absence of parasites in the ears; the presence of hernias; laxity or abnormality of the joints; normal heart and lung sounds; and optimal conditions of the skin and nails.

Typically, mature dogs will be protected against distemper, hepatitis, leptospira, lyme disease, parainfluenza, parvo virus, kennel cough and, of course, rabies.

Adult cats immunizations include panleukopenia (distemper), rabies, feline rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and feline leukemia.

We also offer microchipping to ensure that lost pets are reunited with their family and microchip scanning for stray animals.

We also have a Treatment Area for the animals who are hospitalized or even just staying with us for the day to get a medical work up.

Surgery

 

At the Marshall Animal Clinic, our greatest concern is the well-being of your pet, especially while under anesthesia. We use the safest anesthetic available, state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and our anestheisa technicians are certified and well trained. These precautions plus pre-anesthetic blood screening are used to reduce many of the risks of surgery. We also have the option of using a CO2 cutting laser for our surgical incisions. This process allows for quicker recovery due to decreased pain and inflammation and less hemorrhage.

Our veterinary team uses the latest surgical techniques and equipment, including the surgical laser. They have the expertise and experience to perform various soft tissue, elective, and emergency procedures, some of which are listed below.

  • Spay (female)
  • Neuter (male)
  • Biopsies
  • Tumor Removals
  • Puppy Dewclaw Removal and Tail Docking

  • Anal gland removal

Dentistry

 

Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats. More than 50% of cats and 85% of dogs over the age of 3 have dental problems that require professional treatment. The consequences of leaving dental disease untreated include:

  • Oral pain and infection
  • Loss of teeth
  • Potential infection to major body organs
  • Diminished quality of life

Your Marshall Animal Clinic team will be certain that your pet receives proper dental care from the start. An oral examination performed by the doctor is the basis of the preliminary treatment plan for your pet. General anesthesia is necessary for pets undergoing dental treatment.

 

Our staff is well-skilled and equipped to perform dental procedures such as:

  • DENTAL X-RAYS
  • Ultrasonic de-scaling of tartar
  • Teeth polishing
  • Extractions

Companion Therapy Laser

 

Therapeutic lasers are a newer addition to veterinary medicine. Laser therapy accelerates the body's natural healing process through photo-bio-modulation.

Therapeutic lasers can help decrease pain and inflammation. They can speed healing and bring more blood flow to an affected area. These lasers can be useful in the treatment of arthritis, injuries, infections, pain and many other medical conditions.

Our therapeutic laser is also used on our surgery patients to promote more rapid healing.

Cornell University Pet Loss Support 

Veterinary Specialty & Emergencies Pet Loss Support

 

The newest addition to our clinic is a Comfort Room which was added for the use of our clients and patients in times of stress and grief.

Our Comfort Room serves three purposes:

  • An emergency surgery waiting room
  • A visitation room for families whose pets are receiving multi-day critical care
  • A private home-like atmosphere where family can gather to say their final goodbye to a beloved pet
  • For those of you familiar with the clinic from before the new lobby was built, the Comfort Room is the old lobby. The old reception window has been closed up to ensure quiet & privacy and the old entry door gives the room a private entrance and exit.

Our wish is that this room truly does provide comfort to our clients and patients who are facing a difficult time.
