Elective surgeries are performed on Tuesday of every week, unless it is a holiday. Emergency surgeries are done every day of the week.
It is best that your pet not have anything to eat after 10pm the night before surgery and nothing to eat the morning of surgery. Your pet can have a small amount of water the morning of surgery.
It depends upon what procedure your pet had performed. For instance, pets having dental procedures typically go home the same day; however, we like to keep any pet that was spayed or neutered overnight to allow for optimal healing and rest. All other procedures vary case-by-case.
We prefer that patients be 6 months of age to have this procedure done.
Yes! We have separate boarding for cats and dogs! The PAWliday Inn for our canine companions and the CATurday Suites for our feline friends. Your pets can vacation with us while you are away. Just call for your reservations!
We see mainly cats and dogs.
"Cat Friendly" is a program we follow in order to help reduce the stress on the cats we see in order to make visits at our hospital easier on both the cat and the client.
Generally speaking, cats and dogs should be vaccinated once yearly for common bacterial and viral diseases. Legally, they need to be vaccinated for Rabies by a licensed veterinarian once per year. There are other core vaccines in which are needed once yearly for both canine and feline pets. Bordetella vaccine (for Canine Kennel Cough) is typically done every 6 months.
Yes. Heartworm disease is very common in Arkansas, especially here at the Mississippi Delta region. Heartworms do exactly as they imply -- they are a parasite that resides in the heart. They act as a physical obstruction that compromises not only blood flow itself, but the heart muscles. A pet with Heartworm Disease left untreated and not on a preventative can result in Right-Sided Heart Failure. Heartworm treatment can also be very costly due to the necessary injectable medication used for treatment. Heartworm Disease is much easier and healthier to prevent than to treat; ask Dr. Sullivan today about a good option for your pets!
We do recommend making an appointment to reduce any wait time, but we welcome walk-ins.
We accept debit/credit cards, cash, checks and CareCredit. Payment in full is expected at time of service.
