Why Choose Us

Our Services

Health is the foundation for a Happy Pet

Our pets rely on us to provide for many needs. Perhaps the most important of these is ensuring that they remain as happy and healthy as possible throughout their lives. At 303 Animal Clinic, we would be honored to partner with you in this endeavor. That’s why we’ve worked so hard to develop a comprehensive suite of services designed to support all of your companion’s needs over the years. From birth through the senior stage, we’ll be there through it all.

Wellness care is the foundation upon which we establish all of our health care plans. That’s because we believe in the importance of preventative care. Rather than treat an illness after it’s developed, we prefer to avoid it altogether. This routine care can both extend the length and improve the quality of your companion’s life. Of course, should a medical, diagnostic, surgical or dental care need arise for your pet, we’re prepared to handle just about any situation. Whether it’s a simple checkup or an advanced surgical procedure, you can count on us to provide the best available care at each visit.

Beyond our health care services, we also offer a number of general pet care options to choose from. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to have all of your companion’s needs taken care of in one convenient location. To that end, we offer full service boarding, dog training, wellness care and therapeutic bathing services.

Wellness Care & Vaccinations

Do you want to know the secret to helping your pet enjoy a long, happy and healthy life?
As loving pet parents, we want our animal companions by our side for as many years as possible. The best way to ensure this happens is by making a commitment to their ongoing wellness. By bringing your pet into 303 Animal Clinic for regular checkups, you’ll help protect him or her from many of common ailments. You’ll also give our experienced team the opportunity to identify and address potential health problems early, before they have chance to develop and worsen. This may seem simple, but it can add years to your pet’s life.

An Ounce of Prevention

The wellness services at 303 Animal Clinic are comprehensive and thorough, because we want to do everything we can to keep your loved one healthy. At each visit, the doctor will examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. We will also develop and implement a customized preventative care plan tailored to your pet’s unique needs, lifestyle and risk factors. This will include vaccines, parasite control, nutrition and weight management and anything else we deem relevant to your companion.

Ongoing Health Management

Wellness visits also provide us with regular snapshots of your pet’s health status at each appointment. We can then compare this information against previous exams to identify any changes. This allows us to detect the signs of illness early and develop an effective treatment plan in a timely manner. With many ailments, an early diagnosis can vastly improve the outcome for your animal family member. The more we stay on top of these things, the better chance we’ll have of extending and improving the quality of your pet’s life.

Getting to Know You

Finally, annual visits give us the chance to truly get to know you and your pet. Developing an open, honest relationship with you and forging a lifelong bond with your animal friend is an integral part of the care we provide. We are committed to partnering with you in managing your loved one’s health, and making visits to the vet a positive, stress-free experience. The more we understand your companion’s needs, the more precisely and effectively we can develop a health care plan.

You want to see that special little guy or gal enjoy many wonderful years by your side. We’d love to help you achieve that goal. Call us today and let’s get started!

Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?
Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At 303 Animal Clinic, we want you to know that we understand exactly what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet parents, just like you. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

Pre-Surgical Preparation
Our surgical care begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We will also develop a strategy for keeping your loved one comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to meet the specific needs of each individual patient.

Your Pet’s Surgery
Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we will be there to ease your mind and help keep your best friend calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions on your mind will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.
Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated care team will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and carefully monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern equipment which helps us closely track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care
When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we’ll go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for managing your loved one’s pain at home.
Pet surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the team at 303 Animal Clinic in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

Allergies & Dermatology

Is your pet’s itchy skin keeping you both up at night?
There are many ailments than can affect your pet’s skin. Whether it’s a topical problem, like a hot spot or rash, or something more in-depth like an infection, the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want to see your best friend suffer like that, and neither do we! That’s why 303 Animal Clinic offers professional pet allergy and dermatology services as part of our comprehensive system of care. We’d love to help get your animal family member as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem
The first step toward helping your pet feel better again is identifying the precise condition he or she is experiencing. 303 Animal Clinic is outfitted with an in-house laboratory, which allows us to run a number of diagnostic tests quickly and efficiently. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some of the dermatological issues our experienced team can provide assistance with include:

  • Allergies (food and/or environmental)
  • Infections (acute or chronic)
  • Parasites
  • Dermatitis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Tumors
  • Skin cancer

Developing a Treatment Plan
To determine how best to treat the problem, we will consider a number of unique factors. This allows us to develop a tailor-made approach just for your pet, designed to achieve the best possible results. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may call for a combination of treatment methods. The goal is to develop a plan that is tailor-made for your loved one’s specific needs.
Allergies require a little more work to manage. Once we understand what’s causing your pet’s reactions, we will work toward a solution that will eliminate outbreaks as much as possible. Some allergies can be managed through lifestyle changes, such as switching food products. Others may require a longer-term strategy. Our recommendations will be based on your pet’s unique situation.

Signs of a possible skin problem include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Scabbing or flaking of the skin
  • Hot spots
  • Shedding more than usual
  • Biting, chewing or licking at the affected area
  • Bumps or lumps on or under the skin

If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Give us a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.

Nutrition & Weight Management

Are your pet’s nutritional needs really being met?
If you’ve ever read the back of your pet’s food package, you know how many ingredients there are. Many of these things are difficult to pronounce, let alone understand. Let’s face it: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. If you need a little guidance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, the team at 303 Animal Clinic is here to help!

A Balanced Diet
What your animal friend consumes on a regular basis can mean the difference between simply surviving and truly thriving. Yet with literally hundreds of different foods to choose from, figuring out which one is the right fit can be challenging. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in identifying the unique nutritional needs of each individual patient. We can assess your pet and determine just what food would be perfect for him or her. We’ll even advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your loved one for optimum results.

The Right Weight
A few extra pounds for a human may be no big deal. For a companion animal, however, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten a pet’s life. That’s why making sure that your loved one maintains a healthy weight is so important. At 303 Animal Clinic, we can help by determining which range would be ideal for your pet, then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like proper diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that little guy or gal fit in no time!

Ongoing Maintenance
As your pet ages, his or her nutritional and weight control needs will inevitably change. In order for us to continue achieving the desired results, we must make sure that our approach also evolves. At certain life stages, such as the transition from youth into adulthood, we’ll evaluate our plan and make any necessary adjustments. This will improve the chances of your companion staying in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.
Let the professionals at 303 Animal Clinic design a customized diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your animal friend. Give us a call today to get started.

Diagnostics

Has your pet been acting a bit out of sorts lately? Are you concerned that an illness or injury may be to blame?
When people get sick or hurt, they go to the doctor, explain their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because our animal friends can’t speak, they can’t tell us when something is bothering them. What’s more, many animals are able to hide the signs of illness for long periods of time. All the while, the condition is allowed to develop and worsen.
In cases such as these, we rely on veterinary diagnostics to get the answers we need. These tools and technologies allow us to conduct an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s health, both externally and internally. By gathering a complete picture of your pet’s condition, we’re better able to diagnose and treat health problems in a timely manner. Faster diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your companion.
303 Animal Clinic offers a broad range of routine and advanced diagnostic services.

In-House Laboratory
Our hospital features a convenient on-site diagnostic laboratory, which makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results within just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you even leave the exam room. The ability to run blood work, urinalysis and other tests in-house is especially beneficial for critical cases when time is of the essence. Laboratory work is also available for routine health screenings as part of your pet’s wellness care.

Advanced Imaging
In some instances, a physical exam and lab work simply aren’t enough to effectively assess your pet’s condition. That’s why 303 Animal Clinic also offers advanced imaging services. These tools, such as x-rays and ultrasound, allow us to look inside your pet’s body and learn precisely what’s ailing him or her. We can use imaging to evaluate the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity. Images can be analyzed by our doctors in real-time, or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
If your pet has been acting a bit unusual lately, don’t take chances. Give us a call right away. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and get your best friend back on the path to good health again.

For the safety and comfort of our staff and other guests, we require all animals be up to date on all required vaccinations upon arrival. All pets must also be free of any parasites. Should you need any of these things taken care of, simply give us a call in advance of your pet’s scheduled stay. We can get your loved one prepared for a safe, healthy and fun visit with us!

Dentistry

Do you shy away from kisses and close cuddles with your furry friend due to bad breath?
Contrary to popular belief, stinky breath isn’t something that all pet parents simply must learn to live with. To the contrary, it could actually be a sign that your pet is in need of dental care. Without adequate attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria. Over time, this bacteria can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other serious health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life. The good news is, with the right support, you can prevent all of this.

The professional dentistry services at 303 Animal Clinic are designed to provide all the care and attention needed for a lifetime of healthy smiles. We offer both routine, preventative care to keep plaque and tartar at bay, as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. Whether you’re stopping in for an annual dental exam and cleaning, or your pet needs a tooth extracted, we’ve got you covered. Dental services include the use of safe, effective anesthetic and constant monitoring to ensure patient safety.

Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your pet is exhibiting any of these things, it’s time to schedule an exam. We can determine what the problem is and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one.

In addition to our professional dental care, we’ll also work closely with you to ensure that your pet’s teeth stay healthy and clean year-round. In between annual cleanings, it’s important that you’re brushing your companion’s teeth regularly. We recommend doing this at least three times a week, if not daily. Our experienced staff would be happy to offer demonstrations of the proper technique and give advice on various dental health products you can try.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your best friend once again. The comprehensive dental services at 303 Animal Clinic can help get you there!
