Pet Services

Some of the veterinary services we offer at Railtown Animal Clinic

Wellness Exams

We provide a full examination of your pet from head to tail. Making sure we listen to heart and lung sounds, feel for lumps, bumps and everything in between. We will work with you to develop plans and make recommendations specific to physical exam & diagnostic findings while maintaining transparency with associated costs.

Senior Pet Health
At Railtown Animal clinic we have a soft spot and special interest in caring for our senior patients. We all want to keep our loved ones with us if we can. Just like other life stages, senior pets require unique approaches to wellness, prevention, monitoring, and medical care to maximize their overall health, well-being, and longevity. We offer regular bloodwork, urine, and hormone analysis to monitor internal organ function, annual cancer screen imaging (ultrasounds and digital radiography) to provide the best overall comfort, mobility, health, and wellbeing of your family member. If you have a beloved senior pet please stop by, and introduce us!
Diagnostic Testing
Diagnostics are extremely important in veterinary medicine, and we believe in utilizing them as much as possible to maintain or improve the health of your pet. Our hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools that can provide us with same day results to get your pet happy and healthy quicker! We provide testing for urine, stool, blood, digital x-ray, ultrasound, blood pressure testing and monitoring, ECG readings and more.
Ultrasonography
Ultrasounds can be used in veterinary medicine to help us visualize internal organs clearly and provide more insight into your pet’s overall health status. Ultrasonography can be used to further examine conditions of the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, kidneys, bladder, intestines, as well as detect fluid, tumors and much more! It can also help us determine pregnancies and evaluate fetal health. Railtown Animal Clinic has a brand-new state-of-the-art ultrasound machine with high resolution monitor and 4D image enhancement.
Nutrition Consultation
Good nutrition is one of the most important factors to prevent against future disease in our pets. Our veterinarians and tech team have been trained and continue to stay up to date on current nutritional recommendations. Allergies, weight loss, irritable bowel, you name it we have a food recommendation for you! We can help you every step of the way from calculating calories and formulating a plan that will work for both you and your pet!
Exotic Pet Medicine
We tend to many different species from our furry and feathered friends like rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, ferrets, sugar gliders, budgies, parrots to our scaled pets like snakes and lizards. These animals need healthcare too and we are here to help with any questions from diet, husbandry, disease prevention and more!
Surgery
We provide routine surgeries such as spays and neuters as well as elective soft tissue, mass removal and oral surgery for cats, dogs, and exotic pets. Other surgeries offered include acute injury/laceration repairs, exploratory laparotomies, splenectomies, cystotomies, c-sections, GDV (twisted stomach surgery) & preventative stomach tacking surgeries for large breed/deep chested dogs. If the surgery is out of our hands, we will make recommendations and referrals as needed.
Dentistry
Brushing your pet’s teeth may be easier said than done – we get it! Some animals need preventative dental cleanings yearly to help retain their teeth and keep their bodies healthy. We offer dental procedures for cats, dogs, hamsters, and rabbits. With a beautiful dental suite in our hospital, we can accommodate multiple Complete Oral Health Assessment and Treatments (COHAT) per day. We are outfitted with brand new dental equipment and a dental x-ray machine to help us determine any under the gum issues like tooth root abscesses in dogs or feline resorptive lesions in cats. All our dentals (COHATs) are performed under general anesthesia to avoid any pain or discomfort allowing us to scale all teeth above and below the gumlines as well as polish and extract any teeth that are causing issues.
End of life care
Saying goodbye is never easy, your pet is your best friend, your family member, your teammate. At Railtown Animal Clinic we know how difficult this process may be for you and we are here to support you when trying to make the very difficult quality-of-life decisions. We are teamed up with a local crematorium service to provide all your end-of-life needs. Please call us if you have any questions regarding this difficult time of your life.
Microchipping
Imagine your animal has been lost, he can’t call you at home, he has no way of contacting you, and he lost his collar. Microchipping is a way to make sure you are reconnected with your family member just in case he was to ever jump the fence or get loose. A microchip is a small, numbered chip the size of a rice grain that goes under an animal’s skin (usually between the shoulder blades). Your animal can be scanned to find your contact information if ever lost and brought to any vet clinic or rescue facility! We provide microchipping at any appointment but recommend having your animal microchipped during the spay or neuter surgery.
Digital Imaging
X-rays are a tool used by our team to help us diagnose and provide more insight if your animal is unwell. Radiographs can help us find heart disease, cancers, bladder stones, bone abnormalities, arthritis and more! X-rays are also useful for pre breeding OFA testing to rule out hip and elbow dysplasia, as well as post breeding health status such as counting the number of puppies you might find yourself parenting next month!
Emergency Care
Is your pet displaying behavior you think is concerning? Give us a call and we will help answer any questions as well as give you advice regarding the nature of the emergency. We provide after hours services to ensure your pet will be taken care of any time of day!
Orthopedics
Railtown hopes to offer a range of orthopedic surgeries in the near future, from TPLO cruciate ligament repairs, fracture repairs, FHO, luxating patella and much more!
Preventative Care
Preventative care includes a variety of services such as annual or biannual wellness exams, nutritional guidance, herbal and nutritional supplements, flea and tick prevention, routine bloodwork, regular parasite screenings, deworming protocols and more! Railtown Animal Clinic can provide you with all information or supplies needed for your pet’s preventative care!
