From household hazards to insurance, here is a roundup of our best tips for ensuring your pet's safety.
I have been taking my cats to Dr Jan Treybig for 21 years. She is not only wonderful with the animals, she is compassionate with the family. I have been through loss of aging pets over these past years and she and her staff have been here for me. SCAH has been recommended to many of my friends over the years because of my confidence in them. I will never go anywhere else.
My daughter found this dog that apparently "jumped" the fence while she was boarding at this clinic. I'm sure the doctor and staff will not inform the owner that this happened. Hopefully the owner will see this and think twice about boarding their dog here again.
Do not go there!!!!!!! They over charge 375 for 2Days for small and medium dog !!! Charge us to see a doctor ( for each dog 45- 48$) , but just took dogs to cennel boarding we never se a doctor and not sure that dog even been vaccinated!!! From 2:30 pm 11/20/17 to 12:30 11/22/ 17 they charge 375$ with most of the vacation provided with our dogs via email to them. And most important, do not trust them to pay when you peak up the dogs. Want to pay at 11/20 but they say , we do not take payment now only after to peak up dogs , and do not show us how much it will be. So after 45 hours 375 $ for 2 dogs .
This place sucks when it comes to customer service. They are so super freaking rude at the front desk. I Will never bring my dog back to this place ever. Go anywhere but here for your pet care and needs please I'm telling you this place is so trashy.
This place is horrible. They are more concern with making you pay high prices without caring for your pet. I brought my dog in after midnight because she was having seizures. They quoted me 1,300 dollars to stabilize her and get her treated. Because I was unable to pay right then and there (even though she was still currently seizing ) they pretty much had nothing more to with me or my dog. After she kept having seizures all morning long she ended up dying that morning. Had they just tried to help me she would still be alive. I thought this was an emergency hospital. I will never recommend them to anyone. This just happen this past Sunday. My baby died 4/9/2017
After calling every vet in the area, and them all insisting a stray dog should be put down because of a bad break, I finally called this place. They said they could do the surgery on the leg and quoted me a price. They ended up not doing the surgery due to scar tissue and the setback in the recovery process. I am very pleased with this outcome. I ended up keeping the dog too.
This vet is awful--they will sell you tests you don't need and refuse to provide care without additional unnecessary tests. They don't care about your pet or your pet's care--they are awful and care only about their BOTTOM LINE and the MONEY THEY MAKE. I wouldn't take my pet back here EVER. SAVE YOUR MONEY--STAY AWAY FROM THIS AWFUL VET AND GET YOUR PET HEALTH CARE ELSEWHERE!!!
This place is so expensive, when I took my cat there, I was told that it was going to be $1500, so I asked a male Dr. what was wrong with my cat, he said before he can tell me it was going to be that mich!
Dr treybig misdiagnosed my cat then charged me for tested I didn't authorize. Went down the street to Gullys Animal Hospital and saw Dr. Killman, absolutely the best vet ever! Very informative and empathetic. They even worked with me on my bill since I was charged an arm and a leg to get my cat out of S Copper Animal Hospital. Very very disappointed to say the least.
Would not recommend taking an older pet with major issues. A lot of tests and procedures with no diagnosis. Go to a specialist instead. This is what I did. Very costly lesson
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
