When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic, you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Decatur Veterinary Hospital have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your wagging and/or meowing family members. We maintain a veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, efficient, and child friendly.
Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam, up to date preventatives, and recommendations to keep your pet as healthy as possible. Our doctors will check the health of your pet from head to tail, including checking the heart and lungs, ears and eyes, and joints.
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet to your first visit with us. By doing so, we can tabulate a current and accurate medical history file on your pet. It may be beneficial if you keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life. A few examples of things to journal would be: behavioral shifts, food changes, allergies, and dates of when medications or preventatives are given. If you do choose to have something like this, feel free to share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Our doctors can still work with whatever information you have.
Under some circumstances, our doctors may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in a specific area to better treat your pet.
