We're pleased to offer the following services at Live Oak Animal Hospital:
Our appointment book is computerized, which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty seven days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least two veterinarians and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as accidental ingestion of rat poison, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
Because a large number of veterinarians practice at Live Oak Animal Hospital, we can care for many types of pets:
- Pocket Pets*
- Small Farm Animals*
*Select veterinarians only. Call us for more information.
Vaccinations and Exams
The most important part of a veterinary visit is a good physical exam. We will examine your pet from head to tail to insure they are happy and healthy. Catching problems early is a very important part of what we do. We will also provide the appropriate vaccinations to keep your pet safe year round.
Live Oak Animal Hospital is home to one of the most experienced veterinary surgeons in all of West Texas in Dr. Carl Clary. He routinely performs technical surgeries including knee repairs, back surgery, fracture repair and more. All of our veterinarians are skilled surgeons having performed thousands of procedures and we have two brand new surgical suites on site. Our anesthetic equipment is brand new and all our staff is highly experienced. We intend to provide the safest and best possible surgical experience for your pet.
Routine dental care is one of the most important aspects of your pet's health. At Live Oak Animal Hospital, we can provide the safest and most effective means of cleaning and caring for your pet's teeth. Not only does dental care provide fresh breath, but it can also prevent other serious health problems from arising down the road. While a full dental cleaning is often the only way to remove tartar, we will discuss with you easy ways to prevent the tartar from building up in the first place thus minimizing the need for future cleanings.
X-Rays and Ultrasound
We have brand new advanced technology and equipment to help diagnose your pet's problem. Our state-of-the-art digital x-ray machine will allow us to quickly and efficiently create images of your pet and will allow us to show you the x-ray on an iPad in the exam room. We also can perform an ultrasound, or sonogram, of your pet when the need arises to help us arrive at a diagnosis.
At Live Oak Animal Hospital, we have all brand new blood machines and laboratory equipment on site which allows us to quickly run almost any test we need to arrive at a diagnosis. One of the wonderful things about veterinary medicine is how efficiently we can run tests compared to human medicine. We take pride in providing the best possible care for you and your pet and we are fully equipped to do so.
Pet Supplies and Products
We have selected our very favorite veterinary approved supplies and products and have them available for purchase in our spacious and inviting lobby. We want you to be able to leave Live Oak Animal Hospital with everything you need to care for your pet. We choose only the best and safest products including treats, toys, food, dishes, and even fashion! During your short wait in the lobby, be sure and stock up on everything you want or need for your pet.
Affordable Parvo Treatment
Parvo is an very common life threatening problem in puppies. One of the major issues with treating Parvo is often times the cost which can be very high when providing the best possible care. This includes several days of overnight hospitalization, aggressive IV fluids, antibiotics and medicine to limit vomiting and diarrhea. Depending on the length of stay, many clinics can fairly charge close to $1000 dollars or more for treatment. At Live Oak Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing the best possible care, regardless of the length of stay, for a total of $750. We want to help as many dogs with Parvo as we can.
