At Fur and Feather Family Vet, we offer a variety of services to care for your pet. If you have any questions or would like more information on how we can care for your pet, please contact us today.
Exams and Consultations
Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Our extended hours allow for less trips in to town to the emergency room. We can provide hospitalization, IV fluids, oxygen support, and in house diagnostics such as blood work and xrays.
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to over-feed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.
Pets’ nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for his or her lifestyle.
We believe in utilizing the highest level of medical technology, and our surgeons are experienced and highly trained. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands, and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible. We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures.
Here are some examples of our procedures:
- Dental Cleanings
- Mass Removals
- Orthopedic Procedures
- Fractured Bone Repair
There are a variety of diseases which affect our pets and other animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to. It’s important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.
Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s skin. This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.
We offer a fully stocked store to fill your pet’s needs. Having an on-site store provides you with a more convenient way to get your pet’s refills. We hope that this will save you time and ultimately enhance your experience with us.

We know that pets come in all shapes and sizes, so we are happy to treat exotic pets. In addition to cats and dogs, we also treat animals like birds, reptiles, and pocket pets like hamsters and guinea pigs.
Our team is highly trained and educated when it comes to caring for exotic pets, so you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands.
Heartworm Testing and Prevention
Heartworm disease is a major problem for dogs and cats in our area. For this reason, it is important for owners to understand a little about the disease, treatment, and the prevention.
Heartworms do not always cause a problem until they are adult worms. They can grow up to twelve inches as an adult. At that point, they live in the right side of the heart and the lungs. Affected dogs can have lung disease and heart failure.
Treatment is necessary or death will occur. However, as the heartworms die, they can cause even more problems so it is important to watch dogs carefully through the treatment process. There are times when more than one treatment is needed.
There is no treatment for cats, but fortunately, heartworms are preventable. Here at Fur and Feather Family Vet, we recommend preventing heartworms instead of dealing with the consequences. We believe in a once a month chewable. It is much easier than dealing with the heartache of losing a beloved one to heartworms! Preventable heartworm medications also help to keep your pet healthy by taking care of intestinal parasites.
