Welcome to Shaw Veterinary Clinic. Thank you for choosing our hospital for your pet's health care needs. Our primary goal is to provide high quality medical care for your pets. If you would like a tour of our clinic to meet our staff, please give us a call and we will be happy to accommodate you (870) 856-3243. We hope you enjoy our website and will offer feedback about us and our services.
We recommend Hill's Prescription & Science Diet pet foods. If your pet needs a specific Hill's Prescription food that we do not have in stock, we can order the item by Tuesday and have your pet's food on Thursday.
The examination rooms of Shaw Veterinary Clinic are constructed with your comfort in mind. If you need assistance bringing your pet into the office, just give us a call to tell us you are on your way and will require some help. We can meet you outside to assist you and your pet. Adequate client education is of utmost importance and we routinely offer pamphlets explaining various diseases along with information about preventative medications.
We offer laboratory testing with the most up-to-date blood analyzing equipment for your pet. We can obtain a CBC which gives us your pet's Red Blood Cell and White Blood Cell count along with a Metabolic Profile to assess your pet's liver, kidney, and thyroid function within a few hours.
If your pet is in need of bathing, trimming a little hair, or a complete groom, give us a call. Unfortunately, we are searching for a professional, reliable groomer at this time. Our previous groomer Linda McCormick has come out of retirement to help during the interim. We offer baths daily by appointment via our staff and grooming on a limited basis. If you are interested in making an appointment, please call(870) 856-3243. We apologize for any inconvenience to you and your pet as we search for a reliable, trained groomer.
Our pet lodging has central heat & air conditioning. We typically have plenty of room but do have limited space for larger dogs and recommend making reservations especially during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. If you would like to tour our kennels, please call (870) 856-3243.
Lesley Woodard or Jacey Oakes will be present at the front desk to greet you upon arrival or answer the phone to help you with your needs. They both assist with your appointments, answer questions regarding your pet's health care, and keep our office organized running efficiently. Jacey and Lesley also help the doctors in treating your pets while they are hospitalized, receiving medical care, and undergoing surgery.
We offer a wide variety of surgical options ranging from spaying, neutering, and dental procedures to some orthopedic surgeries and therapeutic laser treatment. Our staff members assist the doctors with surgeries, monitor your pet's vital signs while undergoing anesthesia, and help the doctors with procedures such as administration of laser therapy. The picture shows Jacey and Andrew assisting Dr. Roger as he treats Ridley's aural hematoma with the therapeutic laser. Photons from the therapeutic laser interact with the target cells to stimulate tissue healing and reduce inflammation.
We offer digital radiography that allows us to take radiographs more efficiently and give clients copies of their pet's radiographs. The picture shows Jacey assisting Dr. Roger as he takes radiographs of a dog's back. If needed, we can email copies of the radiographs to a veterinary specialist for a second opinion.
