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 delivered by the next Thursday. Our doctors are glad to offer you nutritional consultations for your pet with special needs.
The examination rooms of Shaw Veterinary Clinic are constructed with your comfort in mind. Our exam rooms are spacious to accommodate both you and your pet. 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. Our doctors strive to perform a thorough exam on your pet in order to identify potential problems and verify your pet's health. Assistants will help the doctors hold your pets so you can rest easy that we are providing you and your pet with the best health care possible.
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. With our in-house laboratory, we can get results on your pet's blood testing quickly. We are able to assess your pet's thyroid function with our laboratory equipment to perform T4 testing in addition to analyzing fecal samples for intestinal parasites and blood samples to screen for heartworm disease infection.
We offer dental procedures on an appointment basis. If your pet has a foul odor coming from the mouth, then your pet may be in need of some dental work. The fees for dentistry depend on several factors such as your pet's age and whether or not extractions are necessary. If your pet is older, the doctors may want to perform pre-operative blood testing to verify your pet's body functions are optimal. If you feel your pet may benefit from a dental procedure, please call us at (870) 856-3243 to set up a dental exam. The doctors can examine your pet's mouth and give you a better idea of total costs, possible extractions, and the need for pre-operative blood work.
Pet Lodging for your pet
Our pet lodging area has both central heat & air conditioning. We typically have plenty of room for lodging, but do have limited space for larger dogs. We recommend making reservations especially during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. We require that your pet has received vaccinations from a licensed veterinarian within the last year. If you would like to tour our kennels, please call (870) 856-3243.
Lesley Woodard, JoDawn Carlton or Shelby Stout will be present at the front desk to greet you upon arrival or answer the phone to help you with your needs. Lesley, Shelby, and JoDawn assist with your appointments, answer questions regarding your pet's health care, and keep our office organized to run efficiently. All three help the doctors in treating your pets while they are hospitalized, receiving medical care, and undergoing surgery. Please call (870) 856-3243 if you have questions, want to schedule an appointment or tour of our facilities.
Services for your pets
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 surgical procedures, monitor your pet's vital signs while they are undergoing anesthesia, and help the doctors with various procedures such as administration of laser therapy. The cold laser therapy is used in situations to promote healing and reduce inflammation. The picture shows Shelby assisting Dr. Roger as he performs surgery. Shelby is monitoring the anesthesia flow to the pet and keeping a close eye on the pulse ox monitor which measures respiration, heart rate, and oxygen saturation. After surgery, Dr. Roger will administer laser therapy to the incision to promote healing.
We offer digital radiography that allows us to take radiographs quickly and more efficiently. We are also able to 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 also email copies of your pet's radiographs to a veterinary specialist for a second opinion or referral. We refer our radiographs to Dr. LeeAnn Pack of Southland Vets for our radiography consultation. Dr. Pack is board certified in radiology and is a valuable asset to our practice.
