Appointments

Please contact the Ava or Forsyth clinic or request an appointment online to schedule your pet's next appointment!

Walk-in appointments are accepted in order of priority, and when the time is available, but are not guaranteed to be seen. 

Pet Wellness Examinations and Vaccination

Routine appointments such as annual examinations, booster vaccinations, and dental examinations are important to keep; these allow the opportunity for our Doctors and staff to recognize issues and answer questions you may have. Building a trusting relationship is a priority for us.  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.

Dental Care

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"...

Reproduction

Animal reproduction can be a rewarding experience, but challenging when complications arise and the unexpected takes place. We 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.

Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory is fully furnished with advanced blood work machines that allow 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.
