Pet Wellness Exams
Proactive and Positive
From the moment a new pet enters your home, you want to make sure they are healthy and at their best. Annual wellness exams, preventive vaccinations, flea and tick control, and oral health exams help ensure your four-legged family member is in great shape. Abnormal trends can be identified and treated early with regular veterinary visits.
Veterinary Diagnostic Labs
Knowing the pet inside and out
We see what our pets eat, whether they're energetic or laid back, if their coat is shiny or rough. Alterations in these characteristics can be an indication that what's going on inside may have changed. We recommend that young pets have a blood chemistry panel, complete blood count, and urinalysis run as a baseline. These tests can be repeated periodically, especially as they enter the senior years, to track what's going on inside that is hard to detect on the outside.
Emergency Care Services
Airport Pet Emergency Clinic
We refer our patients to the Airport Pet Emergency Clinic after hours for circumstances that won't wait until morning.
Dr. Sanders gets to know each pet and their family and wants to provide the best information and options for each circumstance. When the need is there, referrals are easily made to local providers for advanced orthopedic care, ultrasound, behavior consultations, etc. The specialists at the University of Tennessee or Virginia Tech are only a short drive away. Upstate Vet Emergency & Specialty Care in Asheville, NC and Animal Emergency & Specialty Center in Knoxville, TN also provide quality care in a timely manner for our patients that need extra attention.
