Your pet's complete health care involves several important procedures. Obtaining a complete and thorough history or your pet's activity and behavior is important. A complete physical examination is also a vital component of pet care. Regardless of age, all pets can benefit from an annual wellness exam to establish healthy baseline values as well as identify, diagnose and obtain guidance in the development of treatments for medical conditions in order to assist your pet in the healing process. The Village Vet Clinic uses In-House Blood Work with Co-Ag Panels and Digital Radiology which aids in immediate diagnoses.
The Village Vet Hospital offers the highest quality Anesthesia available. Our Doctor's of Veterinary Medicine are the best in the area with over 40 years of combined experience.
The blood work results are extremely fast. Typically, we can have results back within 20 minutes to 24 hours.
Some surgeries we offer:
- Laceration/Wound Repair
- Soft Tissue Surgery
- Orthopedic Surgery
- Eye Surgery
Our hospital has established procedures and protocols in place to make sure that each dog or cat receive extremely thorough care.
*Buster Suits are also available for dogs who undergo these procedures. These suits help to prevent infection or suture tearing.
Dental Hygiene Information
It’s estimated that 85 percent of all pets have periodontal disease by the time they are 3 years of age. Periodontal disease is a progressive disease of the supporting tissues surrounding teeth and the main cause of early tooth loss.
Periodontal disease starts when bacteria combine with food particles to form plaque on the teeth. Within days, minerals in the saliva bond with the plaque to form tartar, a hard substance that adheres to the teeth. The bacteria work their way under the gums and cause gingivitis — inflammation of the gums. Once under the gums, bacteria destroy the supporting tissue around the tooth, leading to tooth loss. This condition is known as periodontitis. Gingivitis and periodontitis make up the changes that are referred to as periodontal disease. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease can also travel in the bloodstream to infect the heart, kidneys, and liver.
A professional veterinary dental cleaning is the only way to remove tartar from the teeth and under the gum tissue to protect your pet’s health. With a professional dental cleaning and follow-up care, gingivitis is reversible. Periodontal disease is not reversible, but diligent at-home dental care and regular veterinary cleanings can slow down the progression of the condition.
The Village Vet Clinic provides a thorough charting of your animal companions mouth with the use of a modern Dental Digital Radiology and State-of-the-art anesthesia technology that monitors vital functions while your companion animal is under anesthesia.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into certain points of the body where nerve bundles and blood vessels intersect. Through placement in these energy channels, the needles enhance blood circulation and stimulate the release of hormones to encourage the body to correct imbalances. This is a great benefit for the animal. More and more pet parents are trying acupuncture for dogs and cats. Acupuncture, when done on the correct points, has been used in animals that experience:
- Hip Dysplasia
- Allergic Dermatitis
- Energy Balancing
- Post Chemotherapy
Class IV K-Lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body.

K-Laser has become the preferred choice for thousands of practitioners worldwide.

Microchipping is a unique, unalterable, tamper-proof, permanent form of identification that owners can provide for the pets. Once implanted, owners are encouraged to register their pets so that their contact information is on record if their pet is ever lost or stolen. Both cats and dogs can receive a microchip. Once received, you will register with "PetLink." Owners can now have more control over the location of their lost pet.
Vaccinations at The Village Vet Hospital
With all of the different vaccinations out there, it can be overwhelming to a pet owner to know which ones are best for their pet. We have an incredibly knowledgeable staff who will discuss the best possible vaccination regimen for your companion animal. Client education is important to us and we want our clients to feel their pet is safe and in good hands
Vaccinations are an important part of your dog’s or cat’s health care routine. By vaccinating your pet, you help protect your family friend from various diseases including rabies, distemper, parvovirus, infectious hepatitis, Bordetella, feline leukemia, and others.
Please provide The Village Vet Clinic with prior vaccination records as well as any incidents where there was an adverse reaction to the administration of a vaccine. DVM Scudder and his team will document the incident and implement the proper precaution so that another vaccine reaction can be avoided.
PlayCamp includes all-day play in our spacious grassy play yards. These yards are equipped with shade trees, shade sails, and our very own Oak Creek. Day camp begins as early as 8:00 am and goes until 5:00 pm each day, with options for clients to do half days as well. Before being placed in our playgroups, each dog is temperament tested to find the best fit based on age, play style, and size. If your pet prefers people or fetching over playing with other dogs, we can accommodate that as well with our one on one package. Our yards were designed to keep nature at its core, allowing dogs to be free to run and play in a safe setting. The dogs stay in their individual run with bedding and water whenever they are taking a break from playing outside. During the heat of the day, the campers are brought inside for a little nap in the air conditioning. The dogs also enjoy a supervised snack time (a frozen peanut butter Kong). Before checkout, each dog gets their paws rinsed and dried. For those pups who tend to get dirty, we offer affordable baths.
Day Camp is your dog's vacation.
