Proper dental care is a critical part of your pet’s healthcare routine that can easily be overlooked. At Jackson County Animal Hospital, we recommend regular dental cleanings to prevent the buildup of plaque that can lead to periodontal disease. Our dental care services include:
If your pet is demonstrating signs of dental disease such as bad breath, discolored teeth, difficulty eating, etc., then call us immediately. Dental disease can be both painful and lead to other health issues with your pet’s heart, liver, kidneys, or nervous system. Our team is here to help you develop a personalized prevention and/or treatment plan to meet your pet’s dental health needs.
At Jackson County Animal Hospital, we have a veterinarian and personnel on duty six days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Our team is ready to work together to save your pet’s life. When you arrive with your pet on an emergency or urgent care basis, our highly trained staff will perform an immediate triage assessment to assess the stability of your pet and the need for emergency medical intervention.
Microchipping your pet is a painless and easy way to increase the likelihood of being reunited with your pet if they were to become lost. Tagged collars are always recommended, however, microchips are an additional layer of protection if your pet’s collar happens to fall off. Each microchip is the size of a grain of rice and once registered transmits the contact information of owners to a handheld scanner. Most veterinary hospitals and shelters have a handheld scanner that they will use when a lost pet is brought in. If your pet is microchipped and registered, they will then be able to reach out to you and safely return your pet.

Keep your pet healthy and happy longer with routine wellness exams. When your pet enters its senior phase of life, it is extremely important to maintain your healthcare routine.

During these exams, we will assess your pet for many common age-related diseases, such as:

Vaccines are an important preventative care tool for keeping pets healthy starting at a very young age. Vaccines provide immunity against certain diseases or lessen the severity of others to provide maximum protection. At Jackson County Animal Hospital, we will help you create a vaccine schedule for your pet, and we will make vaccines as quick and painless as possible.
Parasite prevention is also a critical part of your pet’s healthcare routine from the time they are young. Fleas, ticks, and heartworm are all problematic but very easy to prevent. Our team will educate you on your prevention options and will help you make a parasite prevention plan. Furthermore, if you believe your pet has a parasite, we can conduct a test and discuss your treatment or control options.
