Arden Shoreview Animal Hospital believes that prevention is the key to your pet’s long happy and healthy life. It has been shown to be the most effective and least expensive pet care. That’s why our doctors recommend a pet wellness examination of your pet every six to twelve months depending on his or her age. Remember a year in a dog’s life is seven years in human terms and one year in a cat’s life is equal to five in ours. The annual or bi-annual appointment allows our medical team to get to know you and your pet, to assess your pet’s overall health, discuss any changes we see from previous visits, and spend time with you discussing any treatment plans that may be helpful or necessary for your pet. We try to educate and update you on advancements in veterinary care, and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.

Preventive health exams, vaccinations, lab work when appropriate for your pet, deworming and fecal checks help identify health problems early. Preventative medications help keep heartworm, fleas and ticks away from your pet, will not only keep your pet healthy but will also minimize the cost of healthcare and family stress, allowing you to enjoy more time with your pet!

High-quality care for your pet also includes a commitment to strong client and medical team communication. It is important that we respect your thoughts, opinions and concerns as well as share our veterinary knowledge with you. In fact, client education is something we emphasize. Our entire health care team is committed to providing personal attention to the unique concerns of each client and pet. We want to be your partner in keeping your pet healthy and your family happy.

If your pet does become ill or is injured we have a full range of diagnostic, medical and surgical services available including radiographic technology, an in-house laboratory, internal medicine expertise and resources, and a modern surgical suite.

We are proud of the services we are able to offer our clients and their pets, and our ability to maintain the health and wellbeing of their companion animals. Please take a look through our services to learn why we believe we provide “The Best Animal Care by People Who Care”, and then give us a call to set up an appointment for your pet.
