We're pleased to offer the following services at Norwood Animal Clinic:
Fear Free Visits
Norwood Animal clinic requires all staff members to become Fear Free certified professionals. We have free calming bandanas available for the dogs, along with calming blankets for the cats. Thundershirts are available for your pet to wear during their visits. Each room is stocked with treats, spray cheese and peanut butter. Behind the scenes pheromones are being sprayed on staff members, exam rooms, treatment area, and the kennel area. Our vets do not wear lab coats to assist with keeping your pets remain calm. The staff are only allowed to offer a gentle restraint. Our receptionist are trained to offer advice on how to get your pet to the clinic in a calm and relaxing manner. We have solutions for all pets and wrestling and scaring them is not any of them! We never want an animal to be afraid of seeing us. We really do treat your pets as if they were our own!
Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic machine to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity. During the dental procedure, you pet is monitored by top of the line anesthetic monitors and a trained professional performing hand counts. They are kept warm by a machine designed specifically for pets. We also offer several products to keep your pet's mouth pearly white after the cleaning.
Immunization and Wellness Care
We strive to prevent illness whenever possible. Preventative care has rewards for both pets and owners. Our Wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; vaccinations; spay and neuter package; and specialized blood tests for all life stages. We understand that each pet has different needs and we would never offer you something your pet would not benefit from.
We understand there is nothing worse then a lost pet. We offer Smart Tags which can help bring your pet home. Once scanned with a smart phone, the GPS locator will send you a text or e-mail of your pet's exact location. You are also able to upload vaccine history, allergies, pet information, several contact numbers and any other important information.
Lasers are a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery. Lasers replace scalpels in many procedures, and are useful for a wide range of conditions, such as cyst, tumor, and wart removal, and can even be used in declawing. Laser procedures result in less pain; less bleeding and less swelling. The laser seals the nerve endings resulting in less post-operative discomfort.
Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery. All microchips include life time registration.
Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. Our trained and certified staff is available to help you choose the right diet for your pet to keep him or her happy, healthy and active. We offer a variety of prescription foods which are available in house and our on-line store.
Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. We have a variety of medications to help control you pet's pain and discomfort. We also offer laser therapy to help with pain and swelling of joints and wounds. This non-medicine approach and been proven to be very beneficial to our patients.
Fully Stocked Pharmacy
We stock a wide range of the best veterinary drugs in the animal healthcare field. When possible we will always carry the generic version so we can pass the savings to our clients. If we do not carry something you are looking for, we will order it for you. Our on-line pharmacy also offers a wide variety of products from prescriptions to treats.
Radiology – or X-rays – help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular(cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. Our digital x-ray machine creates clear, fast pictures to aid the doctor in their diagnoses
We offer advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for anesthetic safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include: board certified surgeon available for consultation and surgery; fully trained veterinary and technical staff to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; heated floors in all dog runs for increased comfort during recovery; advanced sterilization techniques; ECG and oxygen saturation monitors; intensive after surgery care and full blood testing. Our traveling board certified surgeon can repair anything from torn cruciates (torn ACL), to broken bones. By having these specialty surgeries preformed at our clinic, you avoid the overhead cost of an emergency center.
Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We work with clients to ensure their pet's comfort and dignity. We work with Peaceful Pets Cremation Services for those who do not wish to bury their pet. We offer private cremations so you can have the ashes returned along with group cremations where the ashes will be spread in a field in Richfield. We understand this difficult time our staff will always be there to help get you through this difficult time.
