In your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. South Paw Animal Hospital has assembled a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care in a state of the art facility.
At least once a year (preferably twice a year as pets age much quicker than we do), your pet should be seen for an examination. Dr. Marks will check the health of your pet from head to tail, providing a thorough physical exam. Once your pet is examined, any recommendations made for your pet will be thoroughly explained to you. We can assure you that you will be very happy you came to South Paw Animal Hospital (and so will your pets!)
Please bring in any medical history you have for your pet when you come to our hospital. This will help us evaluate any health problems and check vaccine status. If you do not have a copy, let us know the name of your previous veterinary clinic, and we can call for medical records. Some things to keep in mind that we may need to know are if there have been any behavior changes, physical changes, or unusual occurrences with your pet.
In some circumstances, Dr. Marks may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine, orthopedics, or surgery.
