Hairballs, Hacks, Gags and Gas:
Learn why you should schedule your pet’s annual checkup today!

When you’re a pet owner, you know all the benefits of living with a furry friend in your
home. Wet kisses, happy tail wags, loud purrs.
Did you expect hairballs on the carpet? Partially digested garbage strewn all over the floor?
Did you expect your pet to belong to the “Speed Eaters Anonymous Club,” where they
eat so fast it comes right back up?

Like many pet owners, you may assume these digestive ailments just happen. You may
assume they’re normal and chalk them up to coming with the territory of living with a
pet. Perhaps they’ve become regular occurrences that you simply handle with mild
frustration. Overall, no worries, you say!

The important thing to know is that many seemingly “normal” digestive problems are
best to be checked out by us. We know there’s a lot of information on the Internet you
can read, but nothing replaces a face (yours) to face (ours) to face (your furry buddy)
visit with us.When you schedule your pet’s yearly checkup, we can discuss and answer all of your
questions. During the checkup, we’ll perform a “hands-on” inspection of your pet’s
abdomen by feeling each of the organs and evaluating the shape, size, and position.
We’ll listen through a stethoscope for any abnormal gut sounds. We may want to take
a look at your pet’s poop to check for parasites and harmful bacteria. It’s all about
digestion and it’s how to keep your pet healthy!

Schedule your pet’s yearly checkup today. Let’s determine what’s normal and what’s
not when it comes to your pet’s digestive tract.
Just think, after your visit, you may never have to clean up a hairball ever again.

For your convenience, we now offer City of Richmond pet licenses.  The cost is 10 dollars per license and a current rabies certificate is required.  The proceeds go to the City of Richmond Animal Care and Control for the care of homeless animals.  Download & Print Form
