The First Vet Visit

Animals have good memories, and their first vet visit is very important. At Marion Veterinary Clinic, we use the first vet visit to create positive memories and take our time getting your pet used to the veterinary exam.

The Health Check

Whether you adopted or purchased your new pet, having a health check performed as soon as possible is important to not only them, but you as well. Checking for intestinal parasites, disease protection through vaccination and determining nutrition for optimal growth are things we can help you with so you can help your pet grow up happy and healthy.

Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering your pet by six months of age can be a lifesaver. Spaying and neutering reduces or eliminates the odds of breast cancer and uterine infections in females and prostate problems and testicular cancer in males.

Many people mistakenly believe that allowing a female pet to have one litter before spaying is “better” for them. However, there is clinical evidence that the optimal age to sterilize female cats and dogs is before their first estrus (heat cycle). The first heat cycle occurs around six months of age, but it can occur sooner. Kustritz, MVR (2007). Determining the optimal age for gonadectomy of dogs and cats. J. Am. Vet. Med. Assoc.231(11): 1665.

Annual Visits for Dog/Cats

Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up.  In this exam, the doctor will check the health of your pet from head to tail. The reason for annual exams is to make sure there are no underlining conditions that, you as the owner, may not know is a problem. At this time, your technician will ask you if you would like different services to be down at the exam.

Annual Visits for Exotics

Many exotic pets have specific requirements regarding heat, light, temperature and cage bedding. If some of these environmental requirements are not kept up with, it can cause your pet to become sick. As many exotic owners know, they hide their sicknesses very well. So, when you finally realize something is wrong, it might be too late. Bring in your exotics every year for a checkup, the doctor may find problems early enough to be able to treat.

Recommended Services

Though surgery is not common is most exotics, we do offer general

                                            surgery on some exotics.

Annual Visits for Livestock

It is a very proactive approach to your farm animals care, 

to have a veterinarian examine them once a year. By doing 

this, you can decrease the number of sicknesses or diseases 

that could spread to the heard. At these exams the doctor will 

discuss vaccination decisions, diet requirements, exercise 

routines, parasite control products and behavioral training 

measures that will all be based on each pet’s lifestyle. The

 environment where he or she lives and his or her specific health

 risks, all change over time and with age. These issues need to 

be reviewed with a veterinarian on a yearly basis to help ensure long-term wellness.
