Here at Aiken Veterinary Clinic we strive to treat your pet like they are our own. We believe that good physical exams and client education are the "key" ingredients to a  positive healthcare relationship. We offer a variety of services that include both traditional and alternative therapies.

SERVICES WE OFFER

Dogs

 
Puppy Visits

The first Puppy Office Visit (POV) is a critical first step no matter if he/she is 6 weeks or 6 months old. During this visit we can discuss:

 

  • Vaccination Plans

  • Nutritional Needs

  • Developmental Needs and Issues

  • Discuss Flea and Heartworm Options

  • Neuter/Spaying ( and when appropriate )

  • Internal Parasites (we will test for them)  & deworm

Your puppy is unique and has specific needs that should be explored by both the owner and veterinarian. Its vital to discuss these individual needs so that veterinarian and the owner can work as a team to determine what is best for  your puppy.

Semi-Annual Exams

  

Semi-Annual Exams (Twice a year exams) - animals age about 7 times faster than humans, therefore, in order to keep up with your pets ever changing health status, we need to see them twice a year. This visit will include 

 

  • Vaccinations/Titers (when appropriate)

  • Diet/Nutrition Discussion

  • Heartworm Test

  • Intraocular Test (for glaucoma)

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)

  • Fecal Test (Intestinal Parasites)

  • Nail Trim

  • VOM 

Cats

 

Kittens

Kitten's immune systems are still maturing, leaving them susceptible to many dangers.  We like to divide up kitten vaccines over a series of three visits. Spreading vaccinations out reduces the  amount of stress on your kitten's developing immune system.

 

Each visit will consist of a physical exam, nutritional educational and diet information, addressing any behavioral issues and vaccinations.

 

Testing for Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, internal parasites and ear mites will be done as the kitten reaches the appropriate age for these tests.

A happy healthy kitten grows into a happy healthy cat.

Feline Wellness Exams

 

Each one of our feline patients have are unique and have individual needs. 

These specific needs are based on 

  1.  Where they spend their time (Indoor, Outdoor or Both)

  2.  Are there any other animals in their environment 

  3. Sex (Gender)

  4. Breed 

  5. Current Health Status (Ongoing Conditions or diseases)

All these questions play a role in 

  1. What vaccines are NEEDED

  2. Laboratory testing that should be performed

  3. Type of diet that should be fed 

We  want to partner with the cat owner to develop a health care plan that fits the needs of the individual .  Together as a team we can keep our feline family member "healthy by any means" .
