Pharmacy and Prescription Diets
Woodland Springs Veterinary Hospital maintains a pharmacy full of the necessary veterinary medication so we may better serve your pet and address his or her health needs. We offer a wide variety of pet medications, which means you can start giving your pet his or her medication upon departure from our clinic and not have to worry about going to another pet pharmacy. Our veterinarians and expert staff will show you how to properly administer your pet’s medication and will be more than happy to answer any questions and address any concerns that arise. We also provide our clients with access to our online pet pharmacy that enables them to order medications that are not available at our clinic and request refills for prescriptions.
If your four-legged companion has a sensitive stomach or special dietary needs, our veterinary clinic can help. We are proud to carry the following prescription diets and specially formulated pet foods:
If your pet requires a certain type of food we do not carry at our facility, we would be happy to specially order what you need.
Millions of pets go missing every year. Collars with detailed identification tags are helpful when identifying pets, but relying on these elements alone is often not enough. Microchipping your pet is a safe and easy way to dramatically increase the chances of your furry friend returning home safely should he or she ever go missing.
Microchipping is a simple operation where a microchip, which is approximately the size of a grain of rice, is implanted under a pet’s skin. Each microchip contains vital information about its specific pet that goes into a national pet database. Veterinary clinics and animal shelters across the country have special scanners that are capable of detecting and reading pets’ implanted microchips. If your pet ever gets lost, his or her microchip can be scanned at any facility with a scanner, and the information in the database will be used to reunite you and your companion.
At Woodland Springs, we use the Bayer resQ microchip system, which is and ISO universal chip that includes lifetime registration. The registration process is straightforward and our office staff will complete your pet’s online registration before you leave our clinic. If you need to change any of your pet’s information at a later time, you can do so online using an easily accessible and secure website. If you are interested in microchipping your pet, ask any Woodland Springs staff member for details.
Choosing a Pet
Pets are wonderful companions that often prove to be more than just friends; they become part of the family. Introducing a new pet into your life is a big decision that should not be taken lightly. We at Woodland Springs Veterinary Hospital believe client education is the cornerstone to happy, successful and responsible pet ownership. We offer our clients free consultation and advice when the time comes to get a new dog or cat. We are also happy to provide our new pet owners with extensive education.
