Services
 

Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best.


Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services:  Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs. Our doctors care for dogs and cats, pet birds (including poultry), exotic pets (rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, etc.), and reptiles.

Emergency Care: Please call our main telephone number for instructions for after-hours emergencies, or call MedVet Mobile at (251) 706-0890.

Bathing: Routine and therapeutic bathing services are available. Grooming services are available on Wednesdays and must have an appointment.

Boarding: We provide pet boarding as a service to our clients. All boarders receive personal attention from our caring staff. Pets must be up to date on vaccinations to be boarded. Drop-off and pick-up times are during regular business hours, Monday through Saturday.
      
Surgical Services:  Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.
