Animals need medical care throughout their lives, from kitten and puppyhood into the geriatric years. Your pet will need routine vaccinations, parasite exams and preventive, and possibly bloodwork. We are also strong advocates of dental care and physical exams throughout the adult years for dietary problems, dermatology, cardiac and other internal medical health.
We are strong advocates of preemptive pain control for all surgical procedures, and utilize multimodal approach to pain therapy. Dr. Flanagin has experience in all routine surgeries (spay, neuter, growth removal) and most advanced abdominal and soft tissue surgeries (intestinal foreign body removal, tumor/organ resection, bladder surgeries, and certain fracture repairs.
For advanced orthopedics and fracture repair, a board certified veterinary surgeon travels to our practice, or we can work with local surgical specialists.
