What to Expect

puppy1.pngIn your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer our world class service and a state of the art veterinary facility.

Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a thorough physical exam and any vaccines or parasite screenings they may require. This is also a good time to let us know about any concerns or questions that you have regarding your pets’ health or their care moving forward. After your pet’s examination, our doctor will make recommendations to better your furry family member’s health. These recommendations may include annual dental cleanings, diet changes, bloodwork screening, or other treatments and procedures to increase the health and life expectancy of your pet. 

Something fairly common that we find on our exam is gingivitis or tooth decay. Even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with daily or weekly brushing, so an annual tooth cleaning by your veterinary team may be in order. Like you, your pet can lose teeth due to decay and neglect. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or ill pets, your veterinarian may suggest additional testing which could include chest x-rays, bloodwork, or urine tests before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure they may require an IV drip; antibiotics may also be necessary before and after. We are here to ensure that you pet receive the best care possible!

Choosing a veterinarian who is calm, compassionate and willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes is important.  We here at Bridges pride ourselves in educating not only our staff, but also our clients in the importance of all the testing and procedures that your pet might need.   It is paramount to find a vet with whom both you and your pet feel comfortable and we sincerely hope that you find a home here with us. 

Dr. Bailey may refer you to a specialist, veterinarians who have completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care, if your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience.
