A comprehensive yearly exam will help to monitor the health of your pet as they age. These exams also play a large part in early detection of conditions where early treatment provides the best options for your pet. We think of this annual exam as a preventive "physical" for your pet. Vaccinations and general health evaluation are usually done at this time, along with worming and discussion of the latest flea control options. The teeth and gums of each pet are also checked, with recommendations for scheduling dental cleanings if needed. Skin, ears, eyes, and orthopedic issues are addressed as well. These annual exams ensure the best opportunity for a long, healthy, and happy life.
Each pet is as individual as their owner. Therefore, their individual needs may vary. Our staff will recommend methods of maintaining a healthy pet through preventive therapies. We believe in being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to your pet’s health.
We provide a variety of routine dental services for your pet, including cleaning, polishing, and extraction of diseased teeth. The dental health of each pet will be evaluated by our doctor at each exam to determine dental cleaning needs. Our team tries to educate every pet owner in proper preventive dental care as well.
Here at Blue Cross Veterinary Clinic we understand that you can't always bring your four-legged friend with you wherever you go. While you’re away let them vacation with our friendly staff! We have a large boarding facility with a covered outdoor exercise area and heated indoor kennels. We are in a flood-proof location and have emergency backup generators and heaters as well. While you’re away you can rest assured that your pet will be well loved and well cared for.
We are proud to offer an array of surgical services including:
We use Isoflurane anesthesia plus respiratory and blood pressure monitoring to make for the safest possible surgery.
Blue Cross Veterinary provides microchip implants (a device about the size of a grain of rice) that is injected under the loose skin between the shoulder blades to aid in the identification and recovery process should your pet become lost or stolen. A specialized scanner reads the coded chip.
Blue Cross Veterinary Clinic recommends that your pet receives dewormings for intestinal parasites at regular intervals throughout the first year, then regular strategic dewormings as an adult pet. You can be assured of the efficacy and safety of these medications when prescribed by your doctor specifically for your pet.
Some of the more common parasites in the Grays Harbor area are:
Annual vaccinations are given by our doctor and are usually done with the wellness exam. We will discuss recommended vaccines with each client. For new pets/clients, we recommend bringing your pet’s most current vaccine information to the appointment. We also offer a discount program on vaccines for puppies and kittens.
This can be one of the most frustrating issues for a pet owner. At Blue Cross Veterinary Clinic we provide thorough skin and coat evaluations with accompanying therapy recommendations. This allows us to treat varying conditions such as environmental and flea allergies, skin infections, or mites. Treatment might include special diets, shampoos or similar products, and medical management with pharmaceuticals.
Blue Cross Veterinary Clinic carries a large selection of flea and tick treatments, some available only for sale by veterinarians. We strongly recommend that you consult a clinic before choosing a flea and tick product over the counter. A large number of products on the market are not suitable for young, debilitated and older animals, and many of them simply do not work. Consulting with a veterinarian can get you the results you need safely and quickly.
When the time comes when we have to say goodbye to one of our four-legged friends, our caring team at Blue Cross Veterinary Clinic understands that it is never easy. Whether it is from old age or serious injury, our caring and compassionate staff will work with you to provide your pet with warmth and comfort before and during the euthanasia process.
