We're pleased to offer an extensive line of services to meet any budget with any need:
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team staff will go out of their way to treat you like family, accommodating requests to our fullest capacity. Routine appointments such as annual examinations, booster vaccinations, and dental examinations are important to keep; these allow opportunity for our Doctors and staff to recognize issues and answer questions you may have. Building a trusting relationship is priority for us at Animal Clinic of Ava. When your pet or livestock just aren't acting "normal", we will gladly schedule you the soonest available appointment with one of our knowledgeable doctors.
Walk-in appointments are accepted in order of priority, and when time is available, but are not guaranteed to be seen. Please call or Request an Appointment online to schedule your pet's next appointment!
Our animal hospital offers advanced surgical techniques, modern anesthesia and monitoring equipment for our patients. Blood work screening for your pet's safety is available and strongly encouraged, and we carefully choose anesthetics specifically tailored to your pet.
Our facility includes isoflurane gas anesthesia machines, a heated surgical table, live monitored recovery station, oxygen monitors, and sterilization of surgical instruments.
Does your pet's breath smell foul? Has your pet lost any teeth, or suddenly appetite has been less than normal? We can perform a dental evaluation to check for dental disease in your pet's mouth. If your pet needs a professional cleaning we employ a superior dental machine that cleans, extracts and polishes.
All of our dental procedures are performed under full anesthesia so that your pet can stay calm and safe. Dental disease can lead to heart complications and are potentially life-threatening. The foul odor is more than just smelly, it can actually shorten the life of your pet if left untreated. Call our office right away to schedule a dental examination if you suspect your pet's bad breath may be more than "something that they ate"...
Animal reproduction can be a rewarding experience, but challenging when complications arise and the unexpected takes place. Animal Clinic of Ava can help assist for a smooth, safe and educated journey down the path of reproduction. In both large and small animals we offer consultations and examinations, cesarean deliveries, surgical and artificial inseminations, and diagnosis of pregnancies. We are here for you every step of the way to aid in the best pregnancy and delivery possible for your pet or animal.
Our in-house laboratory is fully furnished with advanced blood work machines that allows us to view an accurate and overall picture of your pet's health with fast results, which help us diagnose and treat your pet as quickly as possible.
Because of our machine capabilities, a variety of tests are available in our lab, including blood chemistries, blood counts, parasite screening, electrolyte testing, and much more. If your pet needs a test that we don't have the capability of running in our hospital, such as allergy testing, we work with an outside laboratory to run that test and often have results back in 24 hours.
Sometimes unforseen emergencies arise. Animal Clinic of Ava is the only local area veterinary clinic with a Doctor always available to tend to your emergency. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet or livestock, please call us on the way to our hospital if at all possible, so our staff and Doctors can prepare for your arrival. Emergencies can range from any large or small animal birthing complications, hit by car, to rodent poisoning ingestion.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but 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. In some situations, we are able to arrange "Drop Off" appointments, give us a call if you feel your animal needs urgent care.
Because we have multiple veterinarians who practice here at Animal Clinic of Ava, we can care for many types of pets:
Animal Clinic of Ava accepts payment via cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. So that we can continue to provide you high quality service utilizing the best medical technologies, payment is required at the time services are rendered.
