General Services

Spays and Neuters

Spaying helps prevent uterine infections in dogs and cats. Neutering prevents testicular cancer and prostate disease in dogs. We are a Project X participating hospital which addresses feline & canine over-population.

Nutritional Supplements

Dietary supplements may be recommended to target and support a variety of pet health issues such as joints, skin and coats, liver and kidneys and gastrointestinal tract health.

Heartworm and Flea Prevention

There are many different flea and heartworm preventatives available through retail outlets and/or online pet pharmacies. Unfortunately, no one product is best for all patients and their families. A veterinarian with an established medical history of your pet is in the best position to recommend the best preventatives for your pet and your lifestyle.

Compounded Prescriptions

Your pet deserves individualized care and treatment! We are pleased at Salida Veterinary Hospital to offer custom compounding of prescriptions in easy to give flavored formulations ordered to suit your pets special needs. (Our veterinarians and staff know just how difficult it can be to pill a picky cat!)

Isolation Hospitalization

Pets are accommodated in isolation when a contagious disease is identified. Established protocols are in place to ensure the best possible treatment for your pet. When required, your pet will be referred to a nearby 24/7 hospital facility.

Health Certificates

If your family is traveling in the U.S. or internationally with pets, we recommend thinking ahead. Processing time can take from a few weeks to months in order to receive proper documentation. When traveling to Hawaii or abroad please allow for several months processing time. Contact our office with questions regarding a health certificate for your pet.

Radiology Services

Diagnostic imaging detects potential issues with your pet’s muscular and cardiovascular systems. Consultation may result in referral for more advanced imaging such as CT scans or MRIs.

Prescription Diets

A therapeutic diet can make a difference in the life of a cat or dog. Upon consultation, it may be recommended that a prescription diet is needed to help correct certain issues such as urinary health, skin & food allergies, digestive support and others.

Microchips

A pet microchip is simple and safe. No bigger than a grain of rice, the microchip implanted by a qualified veterinarian provides a radio frequency identification. The chip’s unique ID number provides a shelter or veterinary hospital with the pet owner’s contact information to retrieve a lost or found pet.

Intensive Care

Intensive care is offered to animals whose condition is potentially reversible and have a good chance of survival with proper support. We offer isolation and close monitoring. If the patient requires 24-hour ICU, we will refer to a nearby 24/7 hospital facility if necessary.
