We're pleased to offer the following services at Animal Care Hospital of Clifton Park
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
Because a large number of veterinarians practice at Animal Care Hospital of Clifton Park, we can care for many types of pets:
*Select veterinarians only. Call us for more information.
The key to keeping your pets healthy! We would like to thoroughly examine your pet every 6-12 months to help detect any health problems that may occur as well as monitor for any zoonotic diseases (diseases that can be passed to you). This is especially important as they get older. Vaccinations (tailored to your pet’s lifestyle and need), fecal and blood tests for parasites, parasite treatments and preventives, and blood and urine testing all help us to keep your pet feeling great.
We are able to perform most surgical procedures (including all routine surgeries like spay and neuters, as well as more advanced procedures including emergencies, orthopedics, etc.) on site for your loved one. We take great care to keep your pet comfortable and safe during the entire procedure by providing the latest in pain management and anesthetics. All surgical patients are monitored before, during and after surgery, along with having intravenous fluids available for every patient, thus offering the best possible environment for your pet.
Just like your dentist recommends, we recommend regular professional teeth cleanings. Keeping your pet’s mouth healthy is crucial to long-term health and involves continuous maintenance. Regular brushing at home and regular visits to the doggy dentist will keep their breath smelling fresh and clean.
We are able to perform most routine diagnostic tests right here in our clinic. Radiographs (x-rays), ECG’s (electrocardiographs), diagnostic ultrasounds, blood pressure measurement, blood and urine tests, and several tests for infectious diseases are just a few of our capabilities.
Follow the link for HomeAgain Pet Recovery Service to find out more. We can implant a microchip into your cat or dog and give them a permanent ID that travels with them wherever they go. Your contact information is stored in a national computerized database and is linked to your pet’s microchip ID number. Should your pet get lost, the number is retrieved from them and you are contacted based on the information in the database.
We are here to answer your questions and help you solve your pet’s problems! Nutrition, obedience, puppy training, breeding, whelping, coat care, flea and tick prevention, traveling, specific diseases (diabetes, kidney failure, obesity, arthritis, etc). These are some of the many topics most commonly discussed. Most answers are free. But for more in-depth discussions we may ask that you schedule an appointment specifically with the doctor to properly educate you and discuss your pet’s particular problem. We are here to help you and your pet live happy, healthy lives together.
We strive to keep the most current and effective medications and supplements in stock. If there is a particular medication, supplement, or prescription food that your pet needs, ask and we will make every effort to provide you with what you need or offer an alternative.
Our boarding facilities were designed with your pet's safety and health concerns in mind. Each pet has an indoor 4' x 4' climate controlled, individual suite with access to the outdoors multiple times a day.
Our TLC (Tender Loving Care) program provides even more quality time and is available to all of our guests. Our feline guests have their own special home-like setting away from the dog's suites. This allows for plenty of serene rest and relaxation, not to mention your pet's free time romping in our cattery. When bringing a pet for boarding, please furnish written proof of current vaccination status. We require DHPP-L4, Bordatella, Heartworm Test, and Rabies vaccinations and a current fecal examination for dogs (6 months), while FVRCPC, Bordatella, and Rabies vaccinations and a current fecal examination for cats (6 months) are required for our feline guests. All pets will be checked for external parasites at check-in and treated if necessary.
