Introducing our NEWEST service - Laser Therapy!
We're excited to offer our clients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-
invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, and drug-free treatment option for pets that suffer from a variety of conditions. Laser therapy can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment plans or all on its own. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds or surgery, or simply suffering from the pains and effects of aging, your pet can benefit from Laser therapy. Please call our office today to see if Laser therapy would be appropriate for your pet.
We Offer Honeybee Veterinary Services
In 2017 the FDA federally mandated that hobbyist and commercial beekeepers would no longer be able to purchase antimicrobials over the counter. The mandate was part of the FDA’s reform on the way antimicrobials are used in food-producing animals. Honeybees are the only insect listed as a food-producing animal, so now bee-keepers need a veterinarian to manage the health of their hives and prescribe antibiotics.
Local beekeepers are in luck, because Dr. Kittel is a hobbyist apiarist. Familiar with honey bees, and experienced with his own hives, Dr. Kittel can provide expert veterinary care for any beekeeper in need of medical care and/or antibiotics for their hives and bees. Please call our office or send Dr. Kittel an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting information about our honeybee veterinary care & services.
Pet Portal - ePetHealth
We utilize the ePetHealth Pet Portal & Communication/Reminder system to better communicate with our clients about the care their pets need. The ePetHealth Pet Portal allows our clients to schedule appointments online, view/print out their pet's basic medical records and vaccine due dates, request prescription refills, order food, schedule and/or confirm appointments, and communicate with our staff - all from their own computer or cell phone! We also use this system to send out our client newsletters and promotions/offers. For clients without access to text or email, reminder postcards are still mailed out notifying them when their pets are due for important health care services. Upon logging in to their Pet Portal, clients should take a moment to...
(1) check to make sure their personal and pet information is current and correct, and notify us of any changes that need to be made,
(2) set their communication preferences (clients can choose between text and/or email notifications for specific types of reminders for each pet) and opt-out for text messaging if desired,
(3) upload a picture of their pet that we can then use in the pet's medical record
We invite our clients to please call our office if they have any questions about, or problems with our ePetHealth Pet Portal system.
