We hope you understand that, despite our best efforts, appointment wait times may be longer than usual due to the high demand our hospital faces on a daily basis. Please be patient and kind with our staff during your pet’s appointment and, for those requesting prescription refills, please give us a call one week in advance.

Pet Wellness in Spring Hill

Pet Wellness

Your pet’s health is important and preventive care is necessary. We recommend wellness exams, keeping your pets on a vaccination schedule, and working with us on all facets of wellness care.

Vaccinations
Our vaccines are competitive with the “low-cost” clinics. Starting your pet on the right schedule early is one of the keys to a long and healthy life. Vaccines are special proteins that prime the immune system to fight off specific infections. They work in two ways: to reduce the severity of such diseases should they strike or to completely prevent infection.

      • Dogs:
        • 3 Year Rabies: $27.00

Puppy/Kitten Visits

Congratulations on getting your new puppy or kitten. We hope that they provide many years of fun, friendship, loyalty, and love. The veterinarians and staff at Animal Medical Clinic of Spring Hill are here to help you as you start on your relationship with your newest family member. The most important gift that we can give you is the knowledge that will make you better able to care for your pet, at any stage of its life.

Wellness Care Exams
During your annual physical exam, your veterinarian fully examines your pet and discusses vaccinations and ongoing wellness. Just like you do wellness visits with your doctor, it’s important that your pet does the same. During these visits, our team will spend time examining your pet from nose to tail.
Senior Care Exams
The best way to help protect your pet as he or she ages is to understand the aging process in pets. We understand that process and can help you help your pet. Even if your senior pet is already being treated for a medical condition, treatment recommendations can change as a condition progresses. Sometimes medication dosages need to be adjusted, or medication may need to be changed. Routine wellness blood work and other routine diagnostic testing are important for senior pets because these tests allow us to evaluate how your pet’s health is either responding to current management strategies or changing with age.
Fear Free - Pre-Visit Pharmaceutical Medication

Creating a fear-free experience at our veterinary clinic means providing a calm, secure, and relaxed environment for your pet from the moment they walk in the door until they head back home, feeling better than ever. From the time they enter our clinic, we have set space for canines and felines to reduce tensions. Our team is also participating in a continuing education program to become fear-free certified professionals. We want every single visit to be a fear-free visit for your pet.

Preventions - Flea, Tick, Heartworm
At Animal Medical Clinic of Spring Hill, we believe that it is much easier to prevent diseases than it is to treat them. We also believe that every patient is an individual and has a unique set of circumstances that may inform us in what their specific preventative care needs might be. Factors that we may consider include breed, age, lifestyle, health status, diet, reproductive status, and even the accompanying human preference. We believe that medicine is not a “one size fits all” practice. As such, each patient will receive a tailored approach to best meet his or her preventative care needs.

We take a team-oriented approach, aiming to educate and empower you, our clients, to make the most educated decisions regarding your pets’ care based on a variety of factors.

Anal Gland Expression/Nail trims
Anal Gland Expression
Problems occur when the anal glands get too full or impacted. If your pet cannot express the anal glands on a regular basis by the passing of stool, they can become swollen, irritated, and even infected. Some pets need help expressing the anal glands. Our staff here at Animal Medical Clinic of Spring Hill. can help by manually expressing them in a quick office procedure. This will help relieve the irritation and prevent infection. Pets that are having anal gland problems often need them manually expressed every 4-8 weeks.

Nail Trims
For many pet owners, trimming a pet’s nails—dog or cat—can seem like a daunting task. And, if you haven’t regularly trimmed your pet’s nails since they were young, chances are you’ll have a difficult time doing it effectively now. Keeping your pet’s nails trimmed is important for a number of reasons, such as helping to prevent pain, injury, and damage.

Microchipping
Microchips are tiny electronic devices, about the size of a grain of rice, that use radio waves to transmit identification information. Pet microchips store unique identification numbers that show once the chip is scanned. This number can be reported to the appropriate microchip company where the owners’ contact information is stored. Microchips are made of a material that is compatible with body tissues, so rejection and infection at the site of microchip injection are rare.
Ophthalmic Services

Just like people, animals can also suffer from eye complications that affect their day-to-day life. These conditions can include cataracts, glaucoma, uveitis, tumors of the eye, eyelid defects, dry eye, retinal degeneration, and corneal ulcers. Our veterinarians here at Animal Medical Clinic of Spring Hill can provide pets with medical and surgical eye care, including:

  • Eye Pressures
  • Fluorescein Eye Stain
  • Shermer Tear Test
