Pet Supplies

By |

Our reception area displays many items your pet will need for proper health care. If there is a product you would like that we do not have displayed, please feel free to ask our staff and we would be happy to look into it for you.

Pet Food, Supplements and Treats

Proper nutrition is one of the best preventative tools available, so we carry a variety of diets to support your pet throughout its lifetime. Some of our patient’s medical conditions require a special diet either in the short or long term. We also carry the necessary therapeutic diets that are designed to aid in the management of chronic diseases.
One of the most common problems seen among our well-loved pets is obesity. We have very effective weight loss diets and programs (like our ‘Slim Fit’ program) that we would be happy to discuss with you for your pet. Call us to schedule an appointment to discuss your pet’s nutritional needs. Palatable low calorie treats can also be purchased here. Please call us to schedule an appointment to discuss your pet’s nutritional needs.

Our feathered, scaled, and more “exotic” furry patients also have special dietary needs and we carry a variety of diets and supplements to meet their needs.

Grooming Products

We carry a selection of grooming products including shampoo/conditioners ear cleaners, brushes and nail trimmers. These products will help to maintain a healthy skin and coat, allowing you to give your pet the pampered treatment at home. Teeth are also an important part of your pet’s well-being. We carry dental toothbrushes, paste and treats to help keep your pet’s smile healthy and bright.

Hospital Tours

By |

Here at Britannia Animal Hospital it is very important to us that our clients feel not only welcomed but like they are actually part of our team when it comes to the well being of their pets. The best way we know to do this is by making our clients feel at ease, knowing just what exactly goes on when their pets are taken downstairs. We encourage our clients to take some time and join us on a tour of our facilities. Our clients are happy to find it’s not such a mysterious and scary place after all. We have a very clean, warm and caring environment with high tech equipment to give the best possible care to our patients.

For a tour of our animal hospital please call or drop by anytime. Photos of our hospital can also be found by clicking on the ‘Our Hospital Tour’ section of this website.

Nutritional Counseling

By |

Pets need various nutritional requirements depending on their age, breed and health status. For example senior pets have significantly different requirements that young puppies or kittens. As well animals with kidney disease have different nutritional requirements than the average active adult patient. Your pet will likely go through many diet changes throughout its lifetime. Decisions regarding changes in your pet’s nutrition should not be made without first consulting a veterinarian. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your pet’s diet.

One of the most common problems seen among our well-loved pets is obesity. We have very effective weight loss diets and programs for your pet that we would be happy to discuss with you. Call us to schedule an appointment to discuss your pet’s nutritional needs.

Our feathered, scaled, and more “exotic” furry patients also have special dietary requirements and we would be happy to set up a consultation so that we can discuss them with you. We also carry a variety of diets and supplements to meet their needs.

One thing that remains constant between pets (young or old, exotic or not) is the fact that good quality foods throughout his or her lifetime will add years of health and comfort to your pet’s life. We promote a variety of veterinary exclusive diets to ensure the nutritional health and well being of your pet. We also strive to be up to date on current findings in nutritional research so we are able to give you good advice on what foods are needed.

Microchip Pet Identification

By |

Microchipping has become a very popular and safe identification tool to reunite lost pets with their owners. Microchipping involves the placement, with a hypodermic needle, of an electronic chip, about the size of a piece of rice, just under the skin between the shoulder blades. We usually perform this procedure on puppies and kittens when they are under general anesthetic to be spayed or neutered. Adult pets may be microchipped during an office visit.

All shelters, humane societies, and veterinary clinics should be equipped to scan any lost dog or cat that is brought to them.

The only exotics we have microchipped are the larger parrots. These patients do require a general anesthetic to have this procedure performed.

Boarding

Services for our patients:

These are services we provide to our patients.  Our dog and cat patients must be up to date on vaccinations and parasite control.  Our parrot patients must be current with 6 month exams and yearly blood work.  Our small birds and exotic patients must be current with 6 month exams and one negative stool check.

Ease your concerns about leaving your pet behind while you’re away: Let our staff take care of him or her. We can accommodate most special care or needs your pet might have, just let us know when you make the reservation.

We provide amenities such as clean bedding and food and water bowls, but feel free to bring your own if you’d prefer. You can also bring toys and treats. We will administer any needed medication and follow your specified feeding regimen. We do provide food and treats, although eating their own food tends to agree better with most boarded pets.) In addition, we can provide grooming services before you pick up your pet.

We have separate boarding areas for dogs, cats, birds and exotics.

Veterinary technicians regularly check on your pet, and our kennel staff monitor the boarding area. You have the added benefit of knowing that one of our clinicians will promptly begin treatment if your pet gets sick during his or her stay.

To keep all our patients as healthy as possible, we require pets that are boarding with us to have current rabies and distemper vaccinations, along with other species-specific vaccinations and a fecal exam. We also require that most vaccinations be given at least 2 weeks before boarding. This is a service we provide for our clients and require an up to date examination on your pet with us.  Please call us for more information.
