Allergies in Pets
We provide serum allergy testing for pets at Okaloosa Animal Clinic, as well as allergy treatments including medical control and desensitization, which can be accomplished by injection or sublingual (oral) spray.
We perform basic dental checks on all pets during their annual physical examinations, checking for mouth odor and oral condition to determine whether a complete dental cleaning is needed. We also take this opportunity to listen to any concerns you may have about your pet’s oral condition or changes in breath.
We are equipped with digital dental x-ray for checking your pet’s dental health, and this is used in conjunction with our regular anesthetized dental cleaning procedure. We also enjoy teaching our clients about at-home dental care and can offer training tips to encourage your pet to allow their teeth to be brushed.
End-of-Life Pet Care
As a part of our complete care at Okaloosa Animal Clinic, we provide end-of-life care. This may include compassionate euthanasia as well as cremation services provided by Gulf Coast Pet Crematory. Please contact us if you have questions about our end-of-life care.
Pet Health Certificates
We can help with health certificates for interstate and international pet travel. The requirements for each pet are determined by the USDA and the receiving country and vary according to destination. Our team has experience with providing health certificates for a number of locations across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
We provide hospitalization at our clinic when pets need IV fluid therapy and nursing care. In some cases we recommend hospitalized pets be monitored at an emergency and referral facility overnight. Each patient recommendation will be made on an individual basis depending on your pet’s condition and needs.
In-House Veterinary Lab
We have the capability to run the majority of blood work right in our own lab, allowing for quick results. When specialized testing is needed, we send the blood samples to outside laboratories and often receive results in as little as 1-3 days. Our in-house laboratory boasts advanced diagnostic equipment, including digital technology which allows us to attach digital, downloadable information to our computerized patient files.
We use the international Avid ISO compliant microchip at our practice because we know that your travels may take you anywhere in the world, and we want you and your pet to be prepared. We provide discounted prepaid registration to ensure that your pet is registered right away.
We provide a variety of surgeries at Okaloosa Animal Clinic including soft tissue surgeries such as mass removals, abdominal surgeries, spays and neuters, and more. We offer referrals for orthopedic surgeries to ensure the most successful outcomes possible.
Pain Management for Pets
Pet pain is something that we are committed to managing at Okaloosa Animal Clinic. We are determined to offset the effects of pain, which is why we send our surgical patients home with medication for pain management. We also provide pain management for pets who suffer from chronic pain such as arthritis or back problems or who experience discomfort in their end-of-life stages. We can provide what your pet needs to keep them comfortable.
Our clinic is equipped with an in-house pharmacy that is well stocked to provide for the needs of your pet, including prescription diets and flea, tick and heartworm preventives.
Are you looking for a prescription refill? If possible, we recommend 24-hour notice so we can prepare your pet’s medication and save you time at pick-up.
Pet Wellness Care
We recommend wellness care visits for each of our patients at least annually. During these visits, we will perform a complete physical examination including a dental check, administer vaccinations as needed, perform a heartworm test annually, and recommend heartworm, flea, and tick preventives. For puppies and kittens, a series of visits are needed to administer their initial vaccinations, then booster vaccinations will be given as needed at their routine visits.
For your convenience, we have in-house x-ray for the diagnosis of many disorders. We are equipped with digital DR x-ray which allows us to take clearer diagnostic pictures. We are also able to save these digital images in each patient’s file, and they can be made available to clients on disc for take-home or when a referral is made to a specialist.
Spay and Neuter
Spays and neuters are recommended for pets after 12 weeks of age, and for females before their first heat cycle. Having your pet spayed or neutered can help eliminate health risks, such as mammary tumors for females. Having a male pet neutered can also offset behavioral problems such as urine marking.
